Forget older reviews! The hotel was completely renovated just a few months ago and everyone involved did a great job. Our room was much larger than the usual Courtyard rooms, very inviting, with a small balcony. We stayed for a full week and never had the feeling that anything was missing. Unfortunately the pull out sofa is not very comfortable... More

My wife and I stayed Friday and Saturday night at the Courtyard for a weekend of water polo at Riverside CC. The staff was all very friendly and the newly remodeled rooms were great. The pool area was secluded and has a very unique country feel, nicely done! Great visit and worth a repeat visit.

I would've given this place 5's across the board, but one of the elevators didn't work during our entire stay. I believe the hotel was at capacity with a large group, so it took forever to use it. Stairs aren't an option unless going between floors, so they weren't helpful to us on the second floor without setting off an... More

I could not get the group discount at Marriott next to the Convention Center, because those rooms were already booked. The hotel clerk transferred me to this hotel only 2 miles away from my bridge tournament. The lobby had access to free use of computers, and wifi was included in my room for my IPad. You can get a discount... More
