“Typical Courtyard in the Midwest”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 30, 2012

I stayed here twice for business in the past 2 weeks. The rooms are typical for Courtyard, the hotel is located on the west side of town, with a few chain restaurants in the area. My second visit, the room that I was assigned had stained carpet, and worn areas, and the bath room wasn't as clean, that's the reason for the 3 stars--I had expected that a relatively new hotel would been in better condition.

I went to Courtyard in February. I asked for a handicapped room and they had one available. When I went to enter it, I saw that it was already open and the tv was on. Luckily, my brother was with me, because someone could have been in there. After checking it out and finding no one, he went to the front desk and asked. He was told that that is normal for housekeeping to do this. I think it's dangerous. Other than that, it was great.

Room Tip: Check the room before entering

Stayed at the Courtyard by Marriott for three days for a business trip. The rooms were clean and spacious and the hotel was easily accessible.

The room had two queen size beds, with extremely comfortable bedding. There is free wi-fi and complementary coffee.

Some of the towels in the room were old and stained. I requested new towels and the new set was clean, but they looked old. That is the only complaint I have.

The hotel has a bistro that served breakfast, lunch, and select dinner items and a bar. I purchased breakfast one morning and while pricey for eggs and potatoes, these were well done. I also made use of the bar at night and had a couple of mixed drinks. They do not use top shelf liquor, but I also did not ask to upgrade from Cuervo to Patron.

The business center was easily accessible. I will definitely consider staying here again.

Room Tip: The rooms with a King size bed are oddly arranged. I switched from a room with a King to a room with...

The location was nice & also close to Purdue Univerisity & located close to shops & restaurants. On the Main rd(State st) connecting the highway(close by) & the University but the room was real good & there was no noise.
The room was excellent, the bed was positioned differently & the bathroom was what you would expect of a Marriot. Found the bed real comfortable & could turn the TV to view from the bed.
The only problem occurred in the morning when there was no hot water. So tried reaching the front desk & the phone was answered after several tries & the response was, sorry we'll have to wait on maintenance to fix the issue...which was later fixed but it did get us late for our breakfast appointment.
So overall an excellent rating if this problem had not occurred.

Room Tip: Requested a King bed.

Booked this hotel just for one night for a game in Indianapolis which was only 50 minutes away. We weren't going to spend much time in the hotel so I was looking for something decent at a decent price. Had planned to book the Omni or Marriott in Indy, but they were full. This is an excellent property with modern, comfortable rooms. We normally stay in very nice hotels, so it was surprising to hear my wife say "Now this is a room I could spend some time in". The rooms were modern with high quality furniture and a high quality bathroom. The kicker: $89!!! We will definitely stay at this hotel the next time we are in Lafayette!!!

We spent two nights at this property over the weekend. We have been to this property a number of times. It is the new Courtyard design and was built that way. It has a large area that is great to use a laptop, read, watch TV, etc.

The rooms are all the new very contemporary design, clean, comfortable, etc. Nice flat screen TV although oddly placed if you want to watch TV in bed.

They do have food although it is a very limited menu. Starbucks is also available. There are a number of restaurants close.

My one caution is that the property can be filled with sports teams. Often in the summer it is baseball teams of young kids. Noise can be an issue. You might want to check for groups when you make your reservation.
