We booked this through Hotwire so we didn't know what we were going to get apart from knowing it would be at least a three star.
What a great surprise. This is a cute boutique hotel, the most beautiful pool I've seen on Key West, very clean rooms, comfortable beds and...best of all in Key West when you travel with kids...a quiet room.
Service was great.

Loved Key West
After reading reviews here, I was terrified that my entire trip would be a bust! My husband and I took a 20th anniversary trip. We stayed at Marriot Courtyard on the Gulf and found everything to be wonderful. Our room was big and roomy and clean. We had a beautiful view of the pool from our room.
It did not take long to get in that "tropical mood."
We found the staff to be very friendly and met our every need. I would absolutely refer anyone to this hotel. One more thing, if you visit Key West, it's true what they say, you MUST get out on the water.
We had a truly wonderful anniversary.
Our Vacation Oasis
My husband and I just returned from our first Key West vacation. This hotel was MAGNIFICENT! The pool is wonderful. The shade around it is an unexpected welcome once that sun heats up. Plenty of space to stay in the sun if you choose to. The breakfast buffet was excellent, not only the food, but the staff. The rooms were very clean and you are within walking distance to alot of amenities that you might need, ie. grocery store, dept. store, restaurants, fast food, even the movie theater is right next door. You are not within walking distance to the downtown area (Duval St., Mallory Square, etc) but transportation is available everywhere (taxi's, shuttles, rentals, etc). We will definitely return to Key West and will most definitely stay at the Marriott Courtyard again. We can't say enough good things about it!
We enjoyed a family vacation at the Courtyard. The room was very clean and the staff was very pleasant. Maid service was above average. I would highly recommend the Courtyard by Marriott on the Gulf to anyone. We stayed in room 223 which was in the main building. We had access to the stairs in the lobby and side stairs if we wanted to avoid going through the lobby. We didn't eat at the Courtyard, but did enjoy the I-Hop next door. The pool was huge and had shaded areas which was a pleasant surprise to avoid sunburn. The tiki bar was always open and we enjoyed sitting under the mist sprayer by the bar. The lounge chairs by the pool are padded which was also a good surprise. The pool and spa were very clean and the gardens nicely kept.
Stayed for one night here. The room for 39.00 dollars was a steal. Front desk was very courteous, the pool area was beautiful, just a little too shady. Very close to an IHOP, shopping center, and movie theatre. I didn't see any reason why so many complaints. it was wonderful, a bang for the buck.
Save your money...don't stay here!
I stayed one night at the Courtyard by Marriot-On the Gulf Key West. Thank God I only stayed one night. I do not think I could stomach any more. This place is disgusting. There was blood on my bed spread, dust ruffle and curtains. How does one get blood on curtains. Everything about my room was nasty and gross. The pictures on the internet look great. Believe me it is not what you get one you stay here. Spend your money somewhere else. You will be very disappointed.
10th anniversary ruined
I have stayed in courtyards before but this one really was horrible, and not to mention that they pretty much put a dark cloud over our 10th annniversary. sure the pics on the internet look great but it looks very run down and had to always call to have my room done up by the maids, tv had no remote alll channels were not clear (snowy) bathroom door was falling off the frame. had no shampoo maid said they havent had any in over a week. mentioned all of the problems to front desk and they just kinda brushed it off with oh i'm sorry about that. but never attempted to make things right. staff is rude including bartender at the tiki bar. i probably would have had a better stay at a hotel 6...
A great value
Myself and 2 friends stayed from 4/22-4/26, 2004. We had a great stay. Our room was nice, maid service was excellent considering there were three bachelors staying in the room! The staff was very accomodating - the third friend met us down there on the second day of our trip, and the staff was very happy to set us up with a cot for him within minutes of our asking! The pool was great (a bit too much shade in certain areas, but not a big deal.) I don't know, I think the other reviews were a bit harsh. The first one was during Spring Break - I mean come on now. The other one just sounded nitpicky. It's definitely a nice place to rest your head after a day of living it up in Key West!
Great time; great hotel; great experience;
My companion and I spent a most enjoyable week in the ambiance of this property. Breakfast and lunch are some of the best you'll find on the island. I had room 118 walked into the garden then to the Bar then to the Pool. What more could you ask for in Key West. Honestly, some people who write these angry reviews are pathetic.
Would not recommend this hotel
It was spring break when we were there 3-8 to 3-11-2004. Just got home. The students partied outside our room. Called the front desk 5 times the first nite, also called the police. They were around our motorcycles. and ours got scratched up with the students sitting on them. We were told the hotel had zero tolerance for students partying. WEll THAT WAS NOT TRUE. The second nite was bad, and then the third nite was the worst nite of all. Managers told us one thing and did the opposite. We had planned this trip for almost a year. And they ruined it for us. We didn't get a break on the cost. I know they were on spring break, but it was also our vacation, too. Would not recommend this hotel to anyone. We ended up having to park our motorcycles in front of the front door, so they would not get damaged. Also a car window was broken out in front of our room. They did not care about our vacation and could care less about the cost we paid to spend time down in the keys. They were rude and lied to us on several occasions, saying they were going to evict the students. And that all we had to do was call the front desk and the police would be called. Neither was done.
Not aweful, not great either
This place needs some renovations. It is like an old run down hotel.
the pool was nice. that was about it. just not what I expected from a Courtyard.
