My family stayed here after attending a wedding where the reception was held at the Strongbow Inn next door. The lobby area is very dated, and the hotel itself could use an upgrade but for the price, it was comfortable & convenient. I thought the price of the buffet breakfast was a little outrageous for what you get, but the... More

I have to disagree with the other reviews. This place must be the last Courtyard on the planet in line for an update. The hotel is straight out of the late 70's. There is NO elevator here and that is not mentioned anywhere on the Marriott site...leave your heavy bags at home. They did not have our room ready at... More

I stayed here in early June 2014. Beds were comfortable, breakfast was great, pool was nice. Decor is a little tired, but I barely noticed this. Staff are very friendly, and the manager did everything he could to help us find a couple of clothing items that went AWOL from the room during the housekeeper's visit. Got 2 of the... More

I recently spent three nights in this hotel while attending a conference at Valparaiso University. The staff is outstanding. Very warm and friendly. They even told me the best way to cross Route 30 on foot so I could get some personal items at WalMart. The rooms are clean. They have around the clock coffee and a solid hot breakfast.... More

Needed to fly to Valpo for a family funeral and hotels in the area were expensive at the last minute, relative to the area and what I have paid before. Some were even fully booked (good for the local economy!)! Anyway, on checking in after a long flight and drive, the lady at the front desk asked me about the... More

Nice facility and was able to plug our electric Volt over night. Internet works fine, had good TV connection, small refrigerator and microwave oven.

We stayed with the family this past Easter weekend and the place is nice and the staff is very, very helpful and friendly. The pool is small and that area could use some updating.

I stopped staying here several years ago for several reasons- outdated and the GM didn't seem to really care about improvements; breakfast was not included like it is at the Hampton Inn and the Country Inn and Suites, and the GM didn't allow me to stay with my police dog- "no pets."

Have been there twice and each time has been a pleasant experience. The staff is second to none. Price is modest and the place is well kept and clean. A bit outdated but being worked on. Was there for a school visit so the location is a big plus.
