5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 23, 2013

The service was perfect, staff was friendly, and the motel was very clean and accommodating. The court yard was very nice and relaxing. The rooms weren't small and were also very clean. The bed slept very comfortable. Very enjoyable.

We just didn't love this place. It's old and it shows. The room was very small. The slider to our room was ancient and difficult to open and close. The pool was gross. I think all hotels should have a complimentary continental breakfast, and this does not.

The woman who greeted us upon arrival was very very nice and personable. But I had to go to the front desk to ask for more toiletries because the ones in our room were used! A different person who was on at that time seemed put out by my request. She looked at me like she wanted to know what was wrong with what I had. I volunteered they were used.

The hotel is convenient to the airport, but it is tucked away in a confusing office park with poor signage.

We got a good rate but at the end of the day, it wasn't a good value. This isn't a place we would recommend or stay at again.

This hotel was a delightful surprise. I went there for a “staycation”, a weekend away from the details of my regular life in nearby Silver Spring, Maryland. It was the perfect location! I chose the hotel because it’s off the beaten path. It’s tucked away at the end of a street. Still it's within minutes of restaurants, movie theaters and shopping. And there are several centers of business nearby.

The rooms are nicely appointed with warm, contemporary decor. You can request a room with a fridge. And not the kind that house excessively expensive snacks and charges you every time you open it! Just a place to store beverages and light snacks so you don't have to get dressed and go out every time your tummy rumbles.

The grounds are lovely. Lots of flowers on he exterior as well as the interior courtyard along with a nice walking path. There is comfy seating on a patio outside for enjoying pleasant weather. There is also an area with chaise lounges on the outside deck of the indoor pool for summer sunning.

The indoor pool is a nice size. Long enough for doing short laps and deep enough for water aerobic exercise.

The fitness center is nicely appointed and overlooks the pool through a window. So, you don’t have that trapped feeling as in some hotel workout rooms.

Staff is friendly and attentive. From the front desk to the bistro to housekeeping, every question and desire was addressed promptly and with kindness.

This is a perfect destination for business or relaxation.

The hotel is very decent and quiet hotel that is good for the family. We were not disappointed. You also have value for money. The facilities are in good shape. It gives a very good image for Marriott.

In this trip we stayed in 3 different Courtyards in Virginia and MD. This one was the most spacious, with living room and a very spacious bedroom with 2 queen beds. 2 TVs. 1 bar.
The suite is totally newly renovated. It also has balcony.

Our youngest kid liked it so much that requested us to stay one more night. The pool is new, it is illuminated at night from underneath. The gym is very small.

It is conveniently located 25 minutes from Baltimore, with many fast food and restaurants closeby.

The water in the room is charged, each bottle $5.
No breakfast at morning.
Yes coffee machine and different coffes to make. No tea bags.
No microwave.

Hello OrquidLady! Thank you for your loyalty to Courtyard by Marriott! Sounds like you had a Great trip and maybe we have created another loyal member in your kid... =) If ever back at our hotel or other Courtyards, please feel free to utilize our complimentary microwave in the lobby near the front desk and try out one of our wonderful Tazo teas... I'm sure you would enjoy (my favorite is zen). Hope to see you again soon and share my best with the family!

The rooms were clean, the staff very helpful and friendly, but NO FREE Breakfast of any kind. Many other Hotels in the area offered a FULL FREE Breakfast and for the same rate or less.

We tried to find a place nearby that had a breakfast and there wasn't any really, just sandwich type places.

I have stayed in many Hotels and although this one was very nice, the lack of a FREE breakfast will keep me from ever going back.

Hi Craig! Thanks for taking time to share your feedback... I was happy to hear your experience with the team here went well. Understanding that complimentary breakfast is important to you, I wanted to let you know that we do offer some great dinning experience packages which include anything from breakfast, dinner, both, or even meals for the kids! One of the true benefits of this Bistro is the fact that everything is prepared to order along with the diversity of the menu allowing our guests to order something completely different each day of their stay. Please feel free to reach out to me directly next time you are in the area so we can identify the best package for your needs while in town. Thanks again for staying with us and hope to see you in the future!

All the Best,

the courtyard marriott in columbia/jessup maryland was one of the nicest hotels we stayed in a while. just a few miles off 95, in the center of everything. restaurants, shops, stores, anything you could need. right next door was a gem of a find, the sanford grill, which is a must when staying there. just a short walk next to the hotel. the hotel actually had a small cafe on premise that you ycould get food. would definetely stay again
