“Great stay”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 10, 2014

I usually stay downtown but work had me staying out of the city this time. Hotels was very clean for an older property. Staff was very friendly, more friendly than most other hotels I stay at, even when thosev others are more expensive. Only down side is no elevator. I would definitely consider staying again over the higher priced one downtown.

I choose this hotel for the indoor/outdoor pool. We were in the area to pick up family from the airport. My daughter and I spent the day at Shipshewana, and wanted a nice place to stay with a fun pool area. For those who do not know, this property was previously a Carleton Lodge and has been taken over by Marriott. I don't know how long Marriott has owned this property.
The staff was amazing! Everyone was extremely friendly. Our room was on the first floor and very clean, with a comfortable bed. I was surprised that breakfast was not included with the room rate. It was not anything above and beyond what other Marriott hotels offer. We utilized points to purchase this room therefore breakfast was included. I would not have otherwise eaten breakfast within the hotel. Also the pool needs some renovating. There were tiles breaking off in the outdoor section of the bottom of the pool. This left sharp areas on the bottom. This limited our swimming to the indoor section in fear of cutting our feet. I would love to return again when the pool flooring is re done.
This hotel is also in a great location near many attractions and lots of restaurants in the area.

Room Tip: There is no elevator, so if you have difficulty with steps make sure to request a ground floor room.

Green Features: All employees greeted us throughout our hotel stay. Very courteous and helpful.

Once again, I am convinced that there are rooms for standard travelers and and there are rooms for those who bargain/bid for their rates. We Pricelined, saved 50%, and got an average hotel room, but not one that I would expect to be up to the business standard set by Marriott's Courtyard properties. The room was comfortable, but you could see wear and tear on the furniture, bathroom fixtures, carpets, and wall coverings. Did we get a substandard room because we Pricelined? Can't say for sure without seeing other rooms at this property. My assumption is that Marriott recently acquired this property, and have plans to remodel to their quality standards. At least, I hope so.

We stay are Marriott properties many times each year and this one is disappointing. Everything from the carpeting to the tiles in the bath need some work. There's many other choices within a mile, so wondered why some upgrading is not on the to-do list for this property.
Nice location off 69 with plenty of restaurant choices within a mile (several location within waling distance). All the staff were nice and welcoming.
Breakfast choices were reasonable.
We are sorry to say, we will not stay in this Courtyard during future visits to Fort Wayne.

Good location, easy to get to. No elevator for a 3 story hotel. Little outdated for a Courtyard. Staff is very nice and attentive. This location doesn't have a bistro, but free coffee is offered in the mornings.

Not a premium hotel....disappointed. Paid a premium price did not get premium hotel. My back has never met a worse bed. Fixtures old and not well kept. Sofa stained. Trash on floor when arrived. Did not take dirty wet towels.

Room Tip: 1st floor can touch people leaving car
