Stayed a night recently. Reception welcome was genuinely friendly. Had a room with a king sized bed. The room was a decent size, neither too large nor too small. It was clean, the decor is current, good blackout curtains, comfortable bed and I slept well. I ordered a cooked breakfast at the cafe in the lobby the next day and... More

My organization booked seven rooms through the group sales office. Annette was super attentive and nice. Rooms and hotel were clean and exactly what you'd expect from a Courtyard. Check in reception was friendly and smooth. Kids loved the pool. Thank you!

The King suite is not a suite, but is two small rooms connected by a small hall with a bathroom. Single sink located in the bathroom - difficult for two people to get ready in the morning. The shower head was so low that my husband had to bend over. The actual bedroom is small with low ceilings. The sitting... More

This property has apparently very nice rooms. Why then just average? Although we were on the third floor, the sounds of an event downstairs could be heard well into the night. A Bar Mitzvah, maybe a wedding, who knows. Too much beat, not enough sleep. Property is as safe as can be. Several close by restaurants. Didn't use the pool... More

The housekeepers were great. If you asked for things you needed for your room, they were more than happy to help. When we were there, one of their elevators was not working right but they did not have us wait to use the elevator. They did a great job. If ever in this area of Connecticut again, would not have...

I have been staying at the Courtyard in Shelton for many months and the staff are fantastic. Jen and Ashley at the cafe greet me every morning with my usual breakfast, and they always help to get my day started on the right foot. They are so friendly with all the guests, and they are one of the main reasons... More

Very nice hotel, staff very nice, clean pool area, and clean rooms. Hotel is located near plenty of restaurants, Walmart and Target are nearby. There are 2 supermarkets nearby also, it's the ideal location.

Great location, and love the fitness room and pool. Staff is great, especially Ashley in the restaurant. Relaxed and quiet but still conveniently close to shopping, many restaurants, and major highways. Price was comparable but slightly lower than the other major hotels in the area.

Staying here now. Have a 1 bedroom suite. The top of the dresser and desk had dried sticky spill residue on them. TV in sitting room is small, that would be OK but the very limited analog only poor reception was displeasing. Wanted to use the sofa bed. There was only one sheet to use and there were unidentifiable stains... More

There about 5 or 6 times a year for past 9 years. This property has gone through many changes with the last being really bad. Although the hotel underwent a renovation after extensive water damage the results were not good : no coffee in lobby..just water. No breakfast buffet..stand in line to pay very high price for limited selection .... More
