“Disappointed this time around”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 18, 2013

The motel smelled damp or moldy. In an attempt to cover up the smell, the staff sprayed perfume in the rooms. The smell was overwhelming! I had to run the ac and fan all night in addition to covering up my face in order to sleeep.

The restroom floor was also dirty. So dirty in fact that the floor towel had dirt stains on it after I got out of the shower.

If you'd rather choose something other than one of the big casinos, the Courtyard is an option. It's completely updated, rooms are nice, right on the river, and comfortable! The train nearly on-top of the hotel, but it didn't bother me. It's busy and the staff wasn't as friendly as I'm used to, but I understand. The parking lot is small and it was tough to find a spot to park. But overall - a good choice...

You can't ask for a better location or value for a weekend of shopping. The hotel is clean, convenient, and a wonderful place to stay. The rooms were big, lobby was very neat, and you walk out the front door and you are ready to shop!

I stayed on a Monday night one week after the New Year while traveling through the area. It is what you would expect from a Courtyard. It is next to a planned shopping community with at least 4 restaurants. There is a Bass Pro Shop anchoring the shopping area and a Nike outlet store too. It was not busy at all while I was there. If you are going to stay in the area, this is a good choice. I slept without and problems. This will be my Marriott of choice when traveling through this area. I had my vehicle packed due to a move and was worried about leaving it in the parking lot; the Courtyard has security at night for parking so this was not a problem.

This hotel is convenient to the Boardwalk. Unfortunately it is right beside an active railroad track. The trains are loud but they did not waken me at night. The staff was very pleasant. Parking can be tight, but I didn't have an issue as I basically was able to walk everywhere I wanted to go.

Great location right next to the Boardwalk. Employees are pleasant and helpful. The hotel is clean. Just be aware that there is a working railroad very near and you may hear it at night. It did not wake me, but if I was awake I definitely could hear the train.

Room Tip: Ask for a room away from RR tracks, but be aware you will still hear the trains.

The courtyard by marriott at the boardwalk in bossier city is very clean, nice, and the staff are very friendly. the only thing keeping me from giving it an "excellent" rating is the overpowering clean smell of the disenfectants used on the 3rd floor hallway as you exit the elevator. Other than that, the stay was great. We had a river view room and it was very nice. The boardwalk is right there and you can walk to many restaurants and shopping. There is a railroad bridge crossing the river but trains do not bother me.

Room Tip: River view rooms on floor 3 are nice.
