3 night stay in Riverside at Courtyard by Marriott UCR. Modern styled room with IKEA-ish furnishings. Clean room, but bed linens very worn out. Worn patches in sheets look like soiled spots. Requested sheet change for one of our beds and the replacement sheets were no better. During our stay, we had to use a towel to cover a gap... More

This Courtyard has received an upgrade to include new rooms. The rooms are very nice with excellent amenities consistent with all new style Courtyard hotels. The room I was given was behind the elevators and adjacent to the outdoor pool. Not necessarily the best place to put a business traveler, when a cheer leading competition was in town.

Decent hotel in a decent area. It was very clean and the staff was friendly. The rooms looked recently updated and well maintained. The bistro was excellent and a great place to pickup a late dinner after a long of traveling. Highly recommended if you're passing through the area and need a nice place to stay.

This hotel was fabulous. The room was clean and spacious. The lobby was actually appealing--surprising for the price! The area aread around the hotel is rough, with a good number of homeless people. But that has no bearing on thehotel. I had a conference at UCR, and it is walking distance from this pace. The staff is fabulous, helpful and... More

Courtyard by Marriott are your typical, standard hotels. Overall, clean, good reasonably priced breakfast, king size bed, with a pull-out sofa bed, and two flat-screened TVs in a suite. Courtyard's are usually nestled in a working neighborhood community. Courtyard's front desk staff are professional, nice, and all right. Staying at a Courtyard by Marriott isn't really a vacation because we... More

This was our first trip to Riverside and wanted to be within walking distance of UCR. The hotel was very clean, typical Courtyard amenities, rooms and lobby recently refurbished. We used the pool area which was nicely maintained. Excellent service, friendly staff. I would definitely return here .

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. Only bad thing was that there was not a full size ironing board in the room. It was a mini ironing board very difficult to iron on. I would expect something... More

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
