4 of 5 stars Reviewed 4 days ago NEW

this was a 3 night work thing, the hotel was functional in all ways, staff where friendly and couldn't do enough for us. My only issue was the lack of options for breakfast, the 'bistro' was really nothing more than a bar, that sold coffee. all in all I would go there again just don't plan to eat there.

I was pleasantly surprised by the recently renovated room I was in. Everything was refreshed and the bed was very comfortable. The bistro was well run and breakfast was delivered to my table quickly even though they were quite busy. I will definitely be back!

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 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.

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.
