Was here for literally about 7 hours. I had a late an extremely check in. Room was nice, staff was polite, breakfast was not the best but not bad.

I only stayed here for one night. The staff were friendly, plenty of free parking, spacious room, WiFi was included in the room without extra charges. They also have a mini-restaurant on the first floor. It serves Starbucks drinks! but Continental breakfast is not included. Only bad thing was the toilet. I had to flush it 3-4 times to get... More

We are in sever drought and they have not taken water conservation measures. Toilets and showers are not low flow. When I spoke to the management they seemed very disinterested in my concerns.

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

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.
