My wife and I stayed at this hotel for three nights while in Orlando for a convention. It was our first experience with the Courtyard/Marriott hotel brand. We selected this option based on location and positive review on Trip Advisor.
The room was basic but clean. The property was very well maintained, including the pool areas and grounds. The location was very convenient: fairly close to the convention centre (we walked one day - it took about 25 minutes), and there were many restaurants and amenities nearby. There was free parking and free, reliable WiFi.
We were booked into a ground floor room near the back of the hotel. There is a major freeway behind the hotel, and the traffic noise was noticeable, but it didn't keep us awake. The room was an accessible room so the shower had no stall or tub, just a curtain and drains in the floor. Water tended to accumulate and spread into the rest of the bathroom. There was also an adjoining door to the next room, although we didn't notice any noise from the guests next door.
The worst part of our stay had to do with the beds. We had booked a "Deluxe Queen" room using Expedia, but the beds were only double size. When we asked, the desk clerk insisted that the beds were in fact queen, but there is no way: they were far too narrow. The mattresses were comfortable enough, although my wife found that one had a strong musty smell.
For a quick three day trip where we were just using the hotel to crash at night it was good enough, although because of the bed issue I don't think we'd return (especially for a longer trip, or one with our kids).
