Everything from check in to check out was perfect. The rooms were spacious and clean, the hotel staff was friendly and professional and the pool was fabulous. The Bistro restaurant was great and Starbucks every morning couldn't have been better. I will definitely stay again!

This was a good location to spend the night in Athens. It was a quiet location that was a block off one of the main roads through town. We were in walking distance of good food and of the University of Georgia. Rooms were spacious and clean. Good staff as well.

Stayed here for two nights on business. The hotel could use some updating - especially the rooms. That being said, everything was very clean. The room I was in was so quiet!! I didn't hear anyone the entire time I was there. Staff was very friendly and location was close enough for me to walk to the campus area/restaurants and... More

I stay in a lot of Marriott brand hotels but seldom in one in Athens where I live. We had a remodeling issue at our house that demanded a couple of nights out of the house so we decided to stay at the local Courtyard by Marriott. The room was small but nicely maintined. The staff were typically Marriott friendly,... More

Close to campus and downtown Athens restaurants. Rooms are small and need new carpet and furniture, as do the hallways. Beds and pillows are comfortable. Covered porch area, lobby and bistro are nicely done.

Didn't look like courtyard hotel from outside. But inside it was nice and renovated. Nice king size bed with microwave and fridge. My room had entrance from outside similar to motels. There are several rooms that are located on outside that has door access like motels. Everything was very clean except for the bathroom. When I open the toilet there... More

Front door parking? I consider myself "hotel funny" and am a little particular about where I stay. This is a remodeled Days Inn which I'll admit was well done, but this hotel was a MOTEL and still is. I usually do not stay on the first floor. Not only are the second floor rooms really on the first floor but... More

This is a fairly typical Courtyard property. Well maintained, with a very friendly and helpful staff. We met a group of college classmates who travel to an "away" University of Kentucky basketball game each year. We booked a suite to accommodate "visiting." It was much better than we expected. It included a totally separate room with couch, a couple of... More
