We were welcomed very friendly at this Courtyard in Gulf Shores. The lobby is newly renovated and looks fantastic. The room was very spacious and spotless clean. There are a lot of dining options nearby and the breakfast at the hotel is delicous.

My wife and I recently visited Gulf Shores on business. Normally we stay in beach rental if visiting the area for leisure. Our stay at Courtyard proved to very enjoyable. Although it was mid-October, we were still able to use the pool (heated) and thoroughly enjoyed the "courtyard" outside area throughout our stay. The lobby/lounge area was exceptional. I liked...

Stayed here for two nights. Just a quick weekend trip with family. We booked the double queen room. We arrived earlier than check in time at 1pm and there was no problem checking in to our room early. Clean room. Quiet hotel. Excellent bed. Always available parking close to side door. I would stay here again.

Very nice room, comfortable bed. Will stay here if ever in the area for work again. Close to local shops and places to eat. Hate I only stayed here one night. Good rate compared to hotels I stay in, especially to be a few miles from the beach......................

Lacey at the front desk was very helpful. She was pleasant and went out of her way to assist me. The hotel was very clean and quiet, and it is not that far from the beach. I would definitely stay here again.

If you want a clean and convenient hotel located in Gulf Shores look no further than the Courtyard Marriot. The staff was very friendly the beach is located 3 miles from the hotel but restaurants and shopping are very close. Thanks Courtyard for providing a great hotel.

As a platinum guest I was upgraded to a very nice suite. Room was clean, bed was comfy, price was reasonable. Just with that Courtyards would provide breakfast. I am given breakfast at every level of Marriott except Courtyard. Thus I rarely stay at Courtyards, even though I spend at least 100 nights a year in hotels or cruise ships.
