We arrived to our Gulf Shores condo on a Saturday, only to learn our reservation was actually for Sunday (whoops!). Luckily the Courtyard had a room and saved us from sleeping in our car or having to call any additional hotels. We stayed there one night (2 adults, 2 kids). The staff was so kind and did everything they could to accommodate us last minute, such as providing extra towels and rollaway beds. Because we’re Marriott rewards members, we were able to get a late check out and enjoy the awesome outdoor pool until our condo was ready. The pool was large, clean, and had plenty of seating. (Actually far nicer than the pool at our condo). I’d definitely recommend this Courtyard.
First off, the staff at this place are above and beyond. Whoever is managing them deserves a raise because they are the best I have ever experienced. Friendliness, helpful guidance and smiles are abound. The rooms were clean, quiet and comfortable. I will go out of my way to stay here again the next time I'm in town.
