Full disclosure: I am a Marriott Premium member The Courtyard Riverside/UCR is located about 5-10 minutes from the UCR campus - out far enough to not be disturbed by campus activities but close enough to get to quickly in the morning. There are a number of restaurants (of all price ranges) nearby so eating will not be a problem. The... More

My wife and I ended up staying here after a late check-in at another hotel that was not up to our standards. I called reservations and had a room waiting for late arrival after 12am. The check in was painless and teh staff friendly. This is a newer hotel. The room was spacious and clean. My only complaint is the... More

Stayed here for 3 weeks during a business trip. The room I stayed in was very big and extremely comfortable. It was cleaned everyday, including Sundays, during my entire stay. All staff were very accommodating and made my stay a pleasant and enjoyable one.

Ok so I generally wait until the conclusion on my trip to post reviews but I couldn't help myself. The hotel is not in a great area. Payday Cash loans, wig stores, Boost Mobile, Liberty Tax Service, Churches Chicken, really bad liquor store and tons of motels right next store. That should tell you the area that is in. Just...

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
