“Good choice”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 26, 2013

We were attending a Rose Convention at another hotel just up the road and because of some questionable reviews about that hotel, we chose to stay at the Courtyard and that proved to be a wise choice. We did not use the restaurant facilities here because of the activities at the convention. The room was clean and the bed very easy to sleep on. The hotel was quiet and the front desk was very friendly. We were very happy with our choice to stay here.

We stayed a night in September while on college visits. The hotel has been renovated (a few years ago). Overall, very nice. The beds were extremely confortable. The staff went out of their way to be welcoming and friendly. We had dinner and breakfast - a nice choice of "bar food for dinner" and good breakfast! My only complaint was the cleanliness of the bathroom - quite a few hair in the bath and around the toilet...
Note: not a lot of "walk to" restaurants around the hotel itself.
But overall, good price quality.
We would stay there again!

This hotel is very nice, modern, clean, and a overall great place to spend the night. It is also centrally located to shopping, food, and entertainment. We stayed here after a concert a Ziggy's. A cab was 10 dollars each way to and from the hotel. Beds were comfortable. The bathroom was clean.The vanity is separate from the rest of the bathroom so was a great place for two couples. One of us could get ready while the other showered. New flat screen TV. The room also had a fridge. I would highly recommend this hotel. They also had a night time security guard. A little higher in price but WORTH the good nights rest.

Room Tip: There are only two floors.

This hotel was just that...okay. Not the worst hotel I've ever stayed in, but not the best. I typically stay at the Courtyard a couple of miles away, and do like that one better. The front desk staff here was great, the breakfast staff was okay. I overheard what I think was the manager of the hotel complaining about some of the guests who had checked out. I never like to hear employees talking about their clients/customers. Just kind of unprofessional. Other than that...nice and clean, food was good. The other Courtyards rooms seem a little nicer, but these weren't bad.
I was only here for one night, and maybe I just missed it, but it didn't seem like there were a lot of restaurants or anything within walking distance.

Room Tip: They actually didn't have room service. Just accidentally clicked it.

We stayed one night July 12, 2013. This was the cleanest, most quiet and best hotel we have ever stayed. The rooms were emaculate and beautifully decorated. The desk staff and every employee made a point to be extra friendly. It was by far the best hotel experience my wife and I have ever had. It really impressed us that even the bedspread was snow white. How many motels have a white bedspread? The bathroom was sparkling clean and fully stocked. There was not a piece of lint anywhere on the carpet. The entire night was quiet and peaceful, even though there were more than a hundred college aged students staying there for a wedding the next day. At about $100 for the night it was wonderful. If I ever stay in Winston Salem agian this will definately be the ONLY place i stay. I highly recommened this hotel to anyone staying in the Winston Salem area.

I highly recommend staying at this quiet, well-priced hotel.

After a terrible night in the nearby Spring Hill Suites, we moved to this hotel and couldn't have been happier that we did. The friendly staff was very sympathetic, and gave us a very quiet room away from the main hallway, along with a discounted rate on the room.

The hotel looks recently built or re-done, so there are plenty of little touches, like doors that are spring-loaded to close, but not slam. The lobby has a neat giant touchscreen where you can get maps, weather, and other information.

Room Tip: There are only two floors here, and you should probably ask to be on the second floor.

We booked this hotel for our return from Myrtle Beach and upon arriving, we realized it was a mistake. The hotel was fine--no problems there, it was just small and was LITTERED with college students that were staying there to enroll that weekend. Probably should have taken the hint with it being on "university parkway", huh? Just walking down the hall we passed two large groups of kids with beers in hand. Not the hotel for a family with a 3 and 5 year old. HOWEVER--the hotel itself was nice and we wouldn't have had a problem at all staying there without this problem. The front desk staff was EXCEPTIONAL in that they helped us cancel our reservations with them and even booked us with another Courtyard a few minutes away. They didn't have to do that but they did and that just shows how wonderful they are. It wasn't their fault that they were overloaded with college kids so I can't hold that against them. The staff was friendly and wonderful. Again, I have no fault with the hotel at all, just wasn't the place for my family with all the college kids.
