Personally i prefer hotels with a kitchenette or at least a microwave which this did not have. But it was within 10 minutes walk of the office i was visiting. The lack of sidewalk meant the walk to the office alternated between being in the road and crossing grassy areas. I liked the hotel all in all considered and if... More

I wanted to like this, and we usually do like Courtyard properties. But this place just wasn't on par with others. First of all the rooms smelled - like mildew, mold or just musty. We kept the windows open as much as possible but it just made you feel like it wasn't clean and that is an awful feeling in... More

Nice lobby, great location, staff very friendly but rooms smelled of urine. Every time the air kicked on I was sickened by the smell. I asked to be moved from my first room & they were kind enough to accommodate but the second room was just as bad! Rooms were dated overall too - bed linens & furniture etc were... More

Great location, value and facilities. We found this property to be up to date and very clean. The staff was very helpful and having the bistro in the lobby was perfect. Do not plan on using the pullout sofas as an extra bed as the mattress is very thin and the coils are very uncomfortable.

This was one of the three original hotels first built in Columbia, Md. It was recently renovated but still seemed long in the tooth. Rooms were modernized with the typical built ins. the configuration of the room put the TV on the side and about 1/3 of the screen was blocked by the built in closet. I am not a... More

The staff was extremely accomodating and vey friendly. We needed to have our room changed when we got there and they made every effort to see that this happened. Our son is in a wheelchair and we needed to be closer to the front of the lobby. Our room location was perfect! They did all of this with a smile!

Agree with the other reviewers that the staff is very friendly. I have stayed a few times and don't care for the wall unit air conditioners out of the 70's. They are filled with dust and turning them on just puts my allergies into high gear. Overdue for renovation. Location is convenient and the restaurant right next door is pretty... More

Tough to find the hotel - it's behind an Extended Stay hotel. Very helpful staff. Rooms are very comfortable. They do have an elevator, outdoor pool and small exercise room (2 treadmills, elyptical, 1 bike & some dumbbells). Breakfast at the café was fast & tasty
