They knew from our advance reservation that we had five people to stay in the King Suite, which happened to be the most expensive of their accommodations with no AARP Discount allowed, and there were only two uncovered glasses with the dirty ice bucket. The cloth shower mat (rug) was FILTHY with a lot of long hair on it. We... More

I guess people don't realize and understand, when you go to a hotel.. it's not your home so it's not going to be to your highest standard.

I don't stay at Marriott's too often, but this one had a very friendly and engaging staff and a very good layout for getting work done in the lobby restaurant area. The morning offerings from the onsite Starbucks was definitely above average including hot meals. The rooms were more than adequate and our understanding was that they were beginning a... More

The hotel is right off of highway 75 and is surrounded with easy access to both restaurants and shopping. Our room was on the second floor in the front of the building. Based on other reviews had requested room on quiet side of the hotel which is the back side, but was told on check in that none were available.... More

We travel 3 weeks per month and Courtyard is consistently becoming our preferred brand. I am always happy with my stay and do not review often. Manager Adam and his staff deserve recognition for their efforts. Every team member spoke and made direct eye contact, with polite conversation and a smile. No unheard of, but noticeably consistent.

There are numerous comparable options in the same immediate area. This Marriott property is dated and the noise from the highway considerable. If highway traffic noise bothers you, select a hotel away from I75. Moved after the first night to Residence Inn down the street. Same highway noise but nicer room, breakfast included and $40 cheaper per night.

Stayed here on a trip for a family gathering. As always clean and comfortable, consistency that I have come to find at Marriott. Love the breakfast and also the ability to get food in the evening even though there are plenty places nearby - it is easier to just be able to go downstairs.

Great location right off interstate 75. Nice clean rooms. Friendly staff. We enjoyed our stay here at this location. Nice breakfast also offered. There is adequate parking for cars but not if you're pulling a camper trailer. The check in the process and all amenities were appropriate.
