Pros: close to airport with shuttle service that runs every 30 minutes starting at 4:30 a.m.
Next to wal mart and within walking distances to a few restaurants including a mexican and a Hooters.
You can pay departure tax at hotel
Decent price for the room
Nice bathroom and shower.
Guarded/gated parking area.
Cons: they provided shampoo and soap but no lotion
Bed was very firm (a pro if you like it that way)
Single cup coffee brewer provided but only one ceramic cup provided...we both drink coffee.
Lobby, registration, business center and cafe are all slammed together - too noisy and not very comfortable.
No free water. Have to pay $3 for the small bottle and $5 for the larger bottle in the room.
No free phone calls (Holiday inn has free international calls)
small market area didn't have much to offer...didn't even have Tylenol.
Lots of road noise, even from the top floor where our room was.
All in all, for a one nights stay it was fine. This was my first stay at a Courtyard Marriott. I'm usually an IHG girl so next time I think I'll try the Holiday Inn as they have a few more perks for about the same price.
