I would say that this is an average Courtyard by Marriott. I was lucky enough to stay in one of the renovated rooms which did have nice decor and seemed much more updated. The room itself was fairly small, but that never bothers me too much in a quick stay. The cleaning service was not all that great either, as... More

While I am pleased to hear that you enjoyed our updated rooms, I am sorry to hear that our bistro hours and housekeeping service detracted from your stay with us. Our bistro is open daily, with dinner hours from 5pm until 10pm. Our breakfast hours vary with weekday service being 6:30am until 9am and weekends being 7am until 11am. I... More

I ended up staying at this hotel due to last minute travel plans. The hotel lobby is typical for a Courtyard property. The staff was also very friendly. I didn't realize at the time I made my reservation that the hotel was undergoing extensive remodeling. They did have a sign at the front desk when I checked in that stated... More

We just finished staying at 2 Fairfield inn and can't compare this hotel to their standard. Little disappointed. We will not select this place in near future. Lobby looks great but rooms not the best. Staff at front desk didn't know if king bed room has sofa bed!

I am sorry to hear that you were disappointed with our property and I apologize for the confusion regarding sofa beds. As you may have seen while staying with us, we are currently undergoing a room renovation. With our renovated rooms, all rooms will have a sofa-bed upon completion. Since not all rooms have been renovated yet only select rooms... More

This is your typical average courtyard. We stayed due to its location near family. Set away from the road so road traffic is at a minimum. Rooms were clean and comfortable, no mold which is a hughe plus.

If the bed wasn't so comfortable I would have rated this much lower since the room was so dark and drab. The lighting was terrible and the decor is beyond dated but the bed was cozy for a night. This definitely wouldn't be my 1st choice in the area but I'd stay again in a pinch.

Courtyard was a nice hotel to stay at. The lobby area was very modern and clean. Rooms were very clean and spacious. I did not like having 2 double beds in the room, I prefer 2 queens or 1 king bed at hotels. Breakfast was not included but Wifi was included and worked well. Friendly staff. Quiet hotel with decent... More

I am pleased to hear that you enjoyed the new Courtyard lobby experience and the size of our rooms. We understand the desire for larger beds so with our upcoming room renovation (which will begin very soon!) we are up-sizing our bedding from two double beds in our standard rooms to two queen beds.

Hotel is clean and well maintained. It is not a vacation hotel. Good service but not many amenities. Hotel is close to UCF and restaurants. Wifi is very slow. Hotel is a bit pricey considering location.

Nicely renovated, well located, and lots of restaurants nearby. Just a really really good Courtyard. Has the bistro....and really nice rooms. I'll definitely be staying here again. It's a bit pricey though.
