I had car trouble while traveling in this part of Florida, and needed a place to crash for the night. Fortunately we were referred to Courtyard Marriott Riverfront in Bradenton. And fortunately we were helped by Nick, who understood we had car issues, had a very long day after waiting for the tow truck to pick us up and drive... More

I was on Business in Bradenton Florida. I am a Marriott Platinum member; My stay was horrible with a constant influx of local weddings and reunions with questionable characters roaming the hallways all night. The hallways were at least 95 degrees. The lobby filled with happy hour drunks that would constantly harass my wife and other unescorted females. Stay away.

The front desk staff was aloof but cordial on check-in. The elevator was dirty, needing vacuumed and the trash picked up when we checked in. And when we checked out in the morning, it was still dirty, with even more used kleenexes. The room was clean, but the bed is not the stereotypical Marriott bed. It is hard, and I... More

My daughter and I needed a place to stay for a few days while we were in Sarasota to visit family. They recommended this Courtyard Marriott. We've stayed at other Marriott hotels and have had a great guest experience, so I was not prepared for the chilly and indifferent treatment we received from the front desk staff. We were served...

I stayed at this hotel on a last minute trip to Tampa for a wedding shower. It so happens the shower was the same weekend as the Super Bowl..(who knew?), and most of the hotels in the Tampa area were sold out or waay to expensive. This hotel is a renovated Holiday Inn. We drove in late on Friday night,... More

Thank you for your feedback on your stay in March 2009 at the Courtyard Bradenton Riverfront. We are very proud of what the hotel has offer and it really is a hop skip and jump from Tampa. As you mentioned, the scenic drive over the skyway bridge (which is a must). I am sorry to hear that you did not... More

We loved our stay at this hotel. From the excellent room, to the wonderfull staff. The hotel was under construction when we got there, but that couldn't stop the amazing experience we were treated to at this hotel. Amanda the girl at the front desk was wonderfully kind, and overwhelmingly helpful. The pool area is breathtaking with beautiful fountains &... More

This was formerly the Holiday Inn, which I was told was in disrepair. They did a nice job in refurbishing it, it is a modernized Courtyard with a small sandwich restaurant and bar, decent pool. Not much to do around Bradenton, a very plain city, but quite close to Ana Maria Island which is gorgeous. Only problems when I was... More

I happen to find the hotel by searching for Bradenton/Sarasota hotels. I contacted the hotel staff directly and found that they were very helpful in booking my reservation for my upcoming trip to Bradenton for leisure with my family. The Pittsburgh Pirates Spring Training and South Florida Museum should be a must. I was VERY pleasantly surprised how convenient the... More

I stayed at the HI Bradenton Riverfront for one night. The rooms were clean, the furnishings were decent, and the pillows were awesome. The sliding glass door facing the river did not close completely, by 1/4 inch or less. It was locked by use of a security bar. We did not feel unsafe due to this minor gap, especially since... More

I stayed at the Holiday Inn for a quick overnight work trip. The location is lovely, right on the Riverwalk and although it is near a main road, the traffic noise was minimal. The hotel lobby is lovely in with old Spanish / dark tile decor. Check-in was easy and painless even though we had arrived at 11 a.m. Staff... More
