Where do I start? Beautiful place. Nice salt water swimming pool. However, the bottom of both the pool and hot tub appear dirty. Jakes restaurant, wonderful breakfast but terrible fish and burnt steak. The shuttle service was nice, however the return pick up wasn't so great. They ran about 30min late, whereas about 30 people boarded an 18 person shuttle... More

The location of this hotel is nice. Close to the airport and MOA. The lobby was nice. Front desk service was so-so. The room was dated - especially the bathroom which needs some serious upgrades. The tub faucet leaked a considerable amount of water when the shower was running. We had noise issues the first night we were there and... More

This hotel is convenient to the airport but at almost $200/night, is overpriced. It looks like they did some renovations but the real issue is about value. Because there aren't any truly nice hotels near the airport, I suspect there's little pressure to make improvements or lower the price.

This Courtyard provides comfortable rooms, a convenient location, free airport shuttle and very friendly service. The small fitness center could be better equipped and the common areas of the hotel could use a bit of updating.

Checked in late after a long drive, our rooms were supposed to be prepaid. The front desk clerks were a little snitty about this. We ended up calling our organization and the clerks were given a credit card on the phone. According to the bill that was slipped under my door, they still charged my card. The room was noisy....

I had signed up for connecting rooms with 2 double beds, but when I checked in they had us in 2 Kings with pullout couches. They didn't have any other connecting rooms so we took what they had.

The hotel was nice but slightly dated. I would have to say that the pool and hot tub were the best. Both large and in a large room. The room had an odd layout with the TV off to the side of the bed. Not a big issue to me, but to some it might be. The bed was very... More

I stayed here for business, but with a trip to the mall thrown in too. The banquet/facility staff was great, they really went out of their way to help with our event.
