The hotel did not even have free coffee in the lobby and when asked to have a fire in the courtyard was told to do it ourselves and then after trying find out it did not have any propane... hotel staff was aware there was no Propane and did not show any interest to refill it or apologize...

We were surprised that we could not even have a free cup of coffee in the morning. Otherwise it was a great hotel. But who thought they would have to pay for a cup of coffee. How much do I have to write in order to get this review posted

Great hotel, staff very friendly. Location is great, next to shopping center and plenty of places to go eat. Kids had a lot of fun at the pool which was also very clean. Definitely recommend.

Everything was great! Loved our trip and room until we left and were surprised charged 150$. Hard time getting in touch with the management.

Very clean! Love the room! The staff was extremely friendly!

The hotel was convenient to all the great areas Gulf Shores has to offer. Lobby, halls and room was very clean. The staff was great, very helpful making sure my stay was the best it could be. Definitely would stay here again.

The reception staff was welcoming and helpful. Our room was very clean, the bed was extremely comfortable, and best of all, no outside noise (from other rooms, the hallways, or the outside). We thought it was perfect for our visit!

Very nice we loved it!!!! Will definitely go again

Hotel was newly remodeled/ Hotel was next door to a nice 14 screen theatre and great restaurants.

very clean and updated hotel. pool was nice and warm , only 3.5 miles away from the beach. i wish the hotel resturant was open more often but we did keep odd hours. overall good staff clean room great location.

The room was nice, comfortable and clean. The staff was great, friendly and helpful. The only thing that could have been better was the balcony in the room. It was very narrow and too small to get comfortable on. Other than that, I would stay there again in a heartbeat!!!

it was nice. Small rooms but nice and clean we enjoyed our stay their.

I don't have anything negative to say at all. Convenient location, clean site, clean lobby and common areas, courteous staff, clean comfortable room with good house keeping service.

I was promised a king bed suite with a sitting area including a sofa bed. Whenever we arrived the room was a king bed without a sitting room. The sleeper sofa was in the same room! I was very disappointed. I voiced my disappointment to the management. [...]

only negative comment from me is that I 'Assumed' we would enjoy the standard continental breakfast that is thrown in with the daily rate, with all hotels that I have stayed in for the last 'umptteen' years. Breakfast at this place would have been $9.00 per person. I declined and stopped at Mcdonnel's for good economical breakfast. I guess I was irate, for not reading the fine print before paying for the room. I would have stayed in another motel that offered a continental breakfast with room rate. This has been the 'standard' for a number of years now and I figured I was 'tricked' out of my breakfast. I can easily afford a $9.00 per person breakfast;;but it is the idea that I was not watching the fine print, and got burned.

The breakfast buffet was simple, but great! The room was nice and cool (fan was just a little noisy). The bed was very comfortable.

there should be a fridge in the rooms.

The motel was nice but over priced for the Labor Day weekend. I discovered a frog in my room at bedtime. Nobody at the hotel could catch it and housekeeping was gone for the day. I had to agree to stay in the room with the frog. When I complained, I did not recieve a discount on my stay

Overall the staff was friendly and helpful. The main complaint was the peeling paint in the bath tub and the hot tub didn't look too clean either. The pool was pretty nice, the location wasn't terrible, but with traffic it could take awhile to get to and from the beach. The room with two queens was much larger than I expected and VERY nice, even had a fridge. The King room / suite a little cramped but very nice. It was typical expectations of a Mariott. They need to have a continental breakfast though. The breakfast they served for $9 wasn't very impressive. Elevator very slow, but stairs were accessible. We had a good time, and for the price, would stay there again--if they fix the BATH TUB!

The room is spacious, well maintained and very comfortable. Location is very well situated to several attraction areas in the locality.
