We visited the Marriott Opelika in mid-June, a few weeks before a major golf tournament. Although there were a couple conferences going on at the time, the hotel did not feel crowded. It is a very expansive property with a number of very fun amenities including a water slide in their pool, a swim-up bar, golf, tennis, kids' activities, and a billiards and poker room (very cool addition). This is a great place for both adults and kids (albeit I went down the water slide a couple time as I'm a kid at heart.)

The staff was generally friendly and the shuttle driver from Wisconsin was fantastic with advice about where to go in town. Not many people know about the free shuttle to Auburn/Opelika, but you should use that as a great resource. Service was fast and very friendly (and the driver knows the speed traps).

Food service is pretty standard Marriott. A nice poolside bar with some local liquors stocked and microbrews on tap. The hotel bar is a bit quiet and the breakfast buffet is what you would expect (although they do have grits).

The night staff was a little slow cleaning up a shattered CFL light bulb we had and we discovered that they needed to restock their first aid kit.

Room Tip: All rooms are pretty good with a variety of views. Well-designed layout.

Comfortable clean resort with two very nice golf courses, the Lake and the Links plus a nice 18 hole par 3 short course. Hotel has fewer amenities than other on the Trail but a new wing is under construction to help improve offerings. A good stop on the RTJ Trail. Provides southern hospitality.

I stayed here for a wedding party that had rooms blocked off. At first I was a little disgruntled because it was so far outside of Auburn, however, I have to say, it's an amazing hotel property! Beautiful grounds and although it was cool in March they had a huge pool and golf complex - it would be a great place to take kids for some outdoors stuff! I would return if I need to go back to Auburn in a heartbeat! Shuttle was convenient and saved us money to get into Auburn and staff very friendly and helpful.

What the perfect little quick weekend trip. It was just what we needed to kick our heels up and relax a bit. The hotel was pleasantly surprising. The staff was extremely inviting and accommodating from the time we walked in. The room was clean and fairly comfortable. My favorite of course, was the outdoor pool area. It was nice and quaint, but just enough to make you feel like you were at a resort. Saturday night was lively with a live band, and many kid's activities. Overall, this was a great weekend choice.

OMG where do I begin. This place is gorgeous. It's always our home away from home when we have to come to Auburn. However; this time they had no rooms. Staff was friendly and sent us to another Marriott close by. That's another review. The pool area is super nice with accommodating rest rooms and Olivia always came to check on me as well as brought me pretty blue drinks. (I paid for them of course). The hotel needs more people like Olivia. On day two Amanda I believe was her name. She was nice too. She had just started. Thank you for always a good time Marriott Opelika Hotel and Conference Center.
