I'm not a big fan of the Courtyard by Marriott brand - my company books my travel, so I wind up staying at them more often than I would choose if I could control it. The room was small and cramped. Front desk staff was fine. Check-in was a breeze. I hate when the side doors don't lock, though. That feels creepy to me. Internet speeds for the enhanced internet were around 40-45 mbps, so that's good. The A/C was a wall unit, controlled at the unit itself rather than by the thermostat elsewhere in the room. As a real plus (earns an extra star for this, actually) the room included a microwave and a fridge! Woohoo! Good luck trying to find somewhere to plug in your laptop at the desk. Both outlets were taken - one for the desk lamp and the other for the coffeemaker.

Erica and her staff are beyond great...even excellent doesn't do them justice. We stayed there for a week in June, 2021 and were treated like royalty. The front desk, housekeeping, and even maintenance were extraordinary. Everyone, and we mean EVERYONE was friendly, customer focused, professional, and seemed to enjoy their job. We didn't notice any negativity, and were always greeted with a smile when passing the front desk as we came and went. The pool sparkled. The rooms were clean and quiet. We are 25-year lifetime platinum members and know a well managed, good hotel when we see one. You will not be disappointed. And...no, we don't have any family or other ties to this Courtyard. Oh, yeah...be sure to say hi to the "Kansas Mafia" in the restaurant...they work usually in the mornings, and were absolutely delightful, friendly, sincere, helpful and kind. Tell 'em Jack sent ya!

The staff - Erica - GM & Debbie - AGM along with Housekeeping Leader - Lynette and their teams did an outstanding job of taking care of my 86 year old Mother during her 3 week stay while her condo was being renovated as a result of Hurricane Sally. The hotel is very conveniently located next to wide variety of shopping but yet feels secluded. with a lovely pool and courtyard. Only a few miles to the Gulf of Mexico. The property is clean and well kept with a home feeling lobby with lots of seating, tv's and cafe/bar. Again, what made this Courtyard special is the Leadership & Team Members dedicated to serving their Guests. Thank You all so much.

I would have given 5 stars if it weren’t for the grubby baseboards around the bathroom area and the musty smell. The room smelled like there had been water damage. The best part was comfortable pillows and a large TV with lots of movies to choose from. Front desk friendly.

This hotel feels more like a motel than a hotel. It definitely does not feel like a Marriott property. We had several issues with our room(s): too loud - upstairs neighbors sounded like they were running an Amazon distribution center out of their room and the ice machine thuds were constant. Also had faulty fridge in first room (did not work at all) and in the second room it didn’t cool enough and we ended up having to throw out food. Cleanliness was not up to par - our rooms seemed to be haphazardly cleaned and there was a dead bug (small roach) in an area that was NOT hidden and should have been picked up easily during normal cleaning. Furnishings are worn and carpets are heavily stained. The property really needs a full refit to be considered on par with other Marriott properties. Front desk staff was generally friendly and helpful, however we had to see them often as the room was not originally properly stocked. Pool area was well kept and nice and large. Kids enjoyed that. Property location was convenient and the beds were comfortable, however we definitely will try some other properties next time we are in the area.
