We booked a room through Expedia, but our family needed a couple special accommodations upon arrival. These guys were amazingly helpful and friendly, and made our stay a very enjoyable one. A great place to stay close to the beach and Legoland. Lots of fun!

Great hotel and wonderful staff - solid Marriott material. I would absolutely recommend this hotel if you are in the area. Nice rooms, comfortable beds, and very clean as well. If you are going to Legoland, look no further.

Stayed one night for a trip to Legoland. Close driving distance to legoland and restaurants. Location is quiet during the weekend. Not sure about the weekdays as we only stayed over the weekend. it is well maintained and kept very clean. Would definitely stay again.

Stayed for 3 nights starting this past Saturday. Busy with families on Saturday visiting Legoland but hotel reminded quiet. Room was very clean, I don't often tip cleaning staff but I did here. Staff was friendly and attentive. I was charged a different rate graduated upward each night by $10 which I thought was odd because occupancy was very low... More

Had a great stay! Stopped in the little bar for a drink and Alex was fantastic making the drinks! Room was spacious and nice. A bit noisy that evening because of a couple youth teams staying in the hotel. The staff was keeping an eye on it tho! Will stay there again!

For years, Marriott Courtyards have been good places to stay, especially when traveling alone on a business trip. But -- now they are slipping. Breakfast is not nearly as good as it used to be -- getting rather tasteless, as are the pastries. The food needs the touch of a good chef. Then there is WiFi -- advertised as free.... More

I stayed here for three nights over Memorial Day weekend. This property is less than a five minute drive from Legoland which is where we were visiting. The front desk person was helpful in offering options for local dining, and we used the small restaurant for a few breakfasts. The menu is limited and basic, but good for a quick... More

This Marriott Courtyard really exceeded our expectations. We've stayed at Courtyards before, but this property was more like the high-end Marriott hotels, yet with the relaxed and comfortable feel of a smaller hotel property. The grounds were extremely well kept and very picturesque. The pool and surrounding area was beautiful, you could eat outside and there were heaters to offset... More

What a delight! To have a nice hotel PLUS a great staff. I've stayed here a few times, and it is my "go to" spot whenever I'm visiting the area. The pool, the mini gym, and the rooms are all first rate. I also love the healthy food choices in their cafe. I recommend this hotel all the time.

A simple, no frills hotel. They did have free cookies at check-in though. The room was basic, but did have a patio. I do like the king bed with sofa sleeper option these hotels offer, as they fit our family needs more than the double queen option. Service wasn't bad, but we had to wait a while for the crib...
