“Clean, pleasant but overpriced”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 9, 2014

The Hickory Courtyard is a typical Courtyard. It is clean, pleasant. Friendly staff. Rooms have microwave and mini refrigerated. The rooms are on the small side and the bathrooms are clean but outdated and they lack ventilation and not well lit.
The hotel does not offer free breakfast or any free stuff . No coffee in the lobby, no fresh baked cookies, nothing. It has what they call Bistro that offer gourmet coffee and light breakfast. This actually add about $ 10 to the price of the room which is already over priced. There is coffee in the room but it is of very low quality.

Room Tip: I like rooms away from elevator and service area but was given the opposite so I had to change it. I...

My best friend and I walked into the beautiful hotel with no reservation, due to an epic lack of communication at their neighboring hotel. They lady at the front desk was very friendly and helpful. The room we got was big and beautiful. Very clean and very comfortable. If you are traveling to or through Hickory and want to comfortable place to stay, stay here. You will love it!

The room and lodging was very nice and comfortable. The queen bed was very comfortable for sleeping. The hot tub and pool was clean and a nice visit after traveling. They have breakfast available but not complimentary which is the only thing I can find to improve on. We were very happy with our stay.

I stayed here for one month on a business trip in 2012. The rooms were very comfy and filled with the usual amenities. The bed was great! I found the staff extremely helpful when making requests or asking for advice on local attractions. The breakfasts were nice, but not included. There are a number of local restaurants within walking distance which was very handy. There is a short drive to Walmart to grab essentials. If I make it back to Hickory I would definitely consider staying here again.

The Courtyard by Marriott in Hickory, North Carolina I a nice, clean hotel, but not worth the high rates. We spent three nights there in August 2013. One disappointment was breakfast was not included in the nightly rates. Also a bit noisy from the traffic. The restaurants nearby were excellent. The front desk was efficient and friendly. Hickory is a very pretty town, but this hotel is over-priced.

Room Tip: Rooms away from front entrance are quieter.

After a bad experience at a Renaissance Hotel in Asheville, NC this was refreshing to walk in and find a clean hotel room with no spray odor to cover up an old musty hotel. It was clean, beds were comfortable and for a quick overnight it was a great location right off the highway. I've heard it's a pricy hotel but we stayed on points so it didn't matter to us.

I usually have no complaints with courtyard but at the prices here it should include breakfast. My biggest complaint is that the front desk is usually unoccupied. You can hear people in the back room but have to call out to get help. Beds as always are comfy and soft. Gym and pool area was clean.
