As a Platinum Marriott member I stay in Courtyards frequently and normally I am impressed with the level of customer service they provide.

I previously reviewed but had to follow up. Upon returning home, realized we didn't have our $300 headphones, likely left in the work out room. They were found!! The head housekeeper and Trianna, the front desk supervisor, were extremely delighted to share this good news with us and will send them to us right away. We're beyond grateful!

Was able to make a reservation with little advance notice for a mid-week one night stay. Everyone was professional, friendly and welcoming. They graciously upgraded our room which is always nice. Clean, updated room with very comfy bedding and all amenities. Hotel is handy to the #101 Freeway but not noisy at all. Would stay here again.

Beautiful property. Friendly front desk. Complimentary papers, coffee, etc. Convenient location to highway n airport. Food store n trader Joes nearby. Clean. Sunbeam iron was made for a guy n simple to figure out how to operate. Only issue was pesky wi-fi that was either slow or kept dropping.

Stayed at this Courtyard while visiting family. Centrally located and very convenient. A traditional Courtyard by very clean and staff very friendly and welcoming. The only downside is that the pool is outside and the wind seldom stops blowing in the area.
