The staff was friendly and accommodating. The rooms were clean. The courtyard was a great place to gather. It was fairly close to the airport. That was extremely important since this was a national financial coaches conference.

I stayed over a weekend recently. The hotel was a good value. King bed was very comfy. Hotel is centrally located and convenient to food and shopping. Check in and out was super easy. Hotel was very clean and the staff was excellent, especially a gal named Johanna. She did an excellent job of making sure my stay was great!

I generally stay at Fairfield Inn but Courtyard was very close to my son's business and I was visiting him. You rarely find a pool that is not too cold for the adults or a hot tub that is not way too hot. There's were perfect and they had a nice exercise room. The room was fine but we had... More

Stayed two nights this past week on business. Hotel location is ok, with easy access to I-35 which also is a downfall at times as you can hear the interstate at times. Lobby area is updated with the new cafe concept which is fresh and clean. Service that I experienced was good. Rooms are typical and a bit tired. Room... More

Overall my time here was fine and the staff was friendly and helpful. My room seemed to be a little bit dated and in need of some minor repairs; however, it was clean. One thing I did notice was the bed was not as comfortable at other Courtyards, but it was still fine. Since this was a business trip, I... More

Friendly staff, large room, clean. Lots of work space and outlets. That's important as I travel with computer and printer. No fridge and you could hear traffic noise from the interstate. But all in all it was a great stay. Very comfy bed and pillows. I will stay again.

Quick check-in, nice and clean, great beds and pillows. Great location close to the malls, restaurants, etc........ I didn't have a chance to check on breakfast. The small bar in the lobby seemed to be very nice. - - - I would stay here again - No problems at all.
