We stayed here for one night during Christmas and it was very nice.. The beds are very comfortable and slept great. We had a two queen bedroom and it came with a small frig, microwave and small coffee maker. It was attractive and the bathroom area was especially nice since it was two separate spaces. Shower and commode in one...

For a quick trip to the beach, this hotel is located between Gulf Shores and Foley. Great place to stay for a weekend when you want to do a little bit of the beach and shopping at the outlets in Foley.

Food was a little expensive but can be solved by visiting restaurants in the area, otherwise stay was pleasant. There was some creeking sounds from empty room next door as if pipes were banging which resolved later in the night. Outside change n temperature from day to night so might have been expansion/contraction sounds.

We stayed in suites, which were spacious and very comfortable for several nights. We had separate suites for our extended family. The lobby and restaurant area were decorated exceptionally well. The kids enjoyed the outdoor pool, and the pool area was spacious for relaxing in the sun. The staff provided great service.

This is a typical Courtyard so you get exactly what you expect. Clean and comfortable rooms. Quiet hotel. The staff was friendly and I appreciate the fact that they recognize my status at a Marriott rewards customer - just wish they paid more attention to my profile preferences.
