“Highly Recommend this Courtyard!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 10, 2007

My family and I were extremely satisfied with this hotel property! The person at check-in was extremely friendly and helpful and was able to satisfy my daughter's request for a room with a balcony. We spent quite a bit of time near the hotel pool and really enjoyed the experience. The property was clean and well maintained. The breakfast in the morning was clearly superior to what most hotels offer. I've stayed at many hotels worldwide and my experience with this hotel ranks high, was pleasantly surprising. and overall a great value!

1 of 5 stars Reviewed March 15, 2007

In the old days, Marriott Courtyard hotels had real courtyards and swimming/fitness facilities away from the actual hotel. Hence the courtyard name.

This hotel is just like a run of the mill Motel 6, Super 8, etc. The pool is off the lobby, there is a small breakfast area, and fairly small rooms. No courtyard here, just a fence behind the hotel.

The furniture is squeezed into the rooms. The fridge is a stand-alone with a microwave sitting on it. There is little walking space in the room (King) due to all of the tightly placed furniture.

The bed was very soft and had little support. Worse yet, the hotel is very noisy. Water from the room above us could be heard with every toilet flush or shower. The sound was very loud and the walls very thin.

Breakfast was a very run of the mill buffet and some of the food was cold (should have been hot).

I like Marriott and was really surprised by this hotel.

The staff was very good and friendly. They were professional. Too bad the facility is so terrible.

Stayed March 2007

Sept. 2003 we spent three nights.
It's typical of a Courtyard. The front desk help was extremely helpful and friendly. The rooms were clean, the breakfast was average. Nice indoor pool
and hot tub. I would definately stay there again.
