I normally stay at Marriott's hotels. But this one, I can only compare with some of the low-end stays I have under my belt. Lets start with the parking, better, NO parking. I found myself parked in a forest hoping to find my car in good condition the following morning. Our room looked OK until the air condition unit started... More

I apologize for the issues you encountered. Parking is tight when we are busy. If could not figure out what room you were in so I could have maintenance check the issues with the toilet and air conditioner. We do make every effort to fix any problem that is reported, but with out knowing the room it makes it very... More

If you need to be close to the SRQ airport or would like an inexpensive stay a short drive to downtown, then this hotel fits those needs. The rooms offer a king size bed, flat screen and granite bathroom counter. I feel there is sufficient airport traffic and tourist draw to the area to warrant a bathroom update. The tub... More

Thank you for taking the time to share the positives of your experience at the Courtyard. We will be getting a renovation in the next year, which will elimiate the tubs in 75% of our rooms.

Just an overall great experience at this hotel. We were down in Florida as part of a soccer tournament and this was the team hotel. Most of our team arrived late on Friday night and very hungry. The cafe was about to close and the food service folks took care of it, even though it was past their close time... More

Jane and Alice are by far the best assets to the courtyard team. They are the people that made my vacation feel like home. Everything was clean, fast, and relaxing. I will return again even if only to stay a night to catch up with Jane and Alice. I highly recommend this hotel.

For the price, there should have been breakfast included and better television programming. Overall a very average property. Would stay at the Springhill suites up the road over this hotel. Not near any good restaurants nor shopping. This is more of a layover hotel than a vacation. Destination.

Thank you for taking time to review the hotel. In regards to your comment about breakfast not being included, we do offer breakfast included rates. Our Bistro offers fresh items made at the time of ordering, versus a breakfast buffet. There are more options and variety especially for the health conscience guest. We are only about 10 minutes from shopping... More

The property was well maintained. The rooms were clean, and the service was friendly. Upon arriving in our room, the phone rang. It was the front desk asking if everything was in order. Nice touch. The room had a fridge and a coffee maker. My only complaint is the wall unit AC. I just don't care for them. But they... More
