“Close to Villanova”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 28, 2008

We picked this hotel only because of it's proximity to our visit to Villanova. We were pleasantly surprised. Devon is a quaint town with many interesting shops and restaurants. The hotel staff is professional and attentive. Our non-smoking double room was clean, quiet and comfortable. The bathroom size was adequate. The breakfast buffet was just fine, and extremely convenient. The buffet staff was helpful.

I am not so sure about the pool. It was a very hot day, and hoped that the pool would be refreshing. It was as warm as a bathtub - almost as warm as the hot tub. Other guests said that it ranged from hot to cold each day.

The only negative is that there was no wireless access in the room. They offer a network cable, but it is only 3 feet long.

We reserved a block of four rooms for graduation weekend, and had a wonderful time. The hotel staff were so accommodating and helpful with every request. We felt very welcome. It made the family gathering most enjoyable.

The facility itself was just average, and the breakfast buffet was expensive for what was offered. We ate elsewhere for less. There are many breakfast choices in close proximity to the hotel. The pool was small and crowded and the exercise room was very tiny. The rooms were clean and one of them had a refrigerator which helped alot. Most of them did not have one.

Overall it was an average hotel for the money, but the staff made it better than that.

It is very hard to find behind a couple of office buildings, but worth looking for.

  • Liked — Great internet access in rooms and lobby. Most comfortable beds in any hotel.
  • Disliked — price for breakfast buffet.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 6, 2008

We stayed here for one night before visiting Villanova and Haverford. The taxi ride from the hotel was about $52, but the cab driver knew didn't have a problem finding the hotel. The room was large and clean with firm beds and good water pressure in the shower. The bathrooms were small since they had the tub and toilet in one room and the sink in another.

The little convenience store near the front desk had wine, sandwiches, crackers, and some microwaveable food like macaroni and cheese.

It was about a 10-minute walk to the Strafford train station where we caught a train to Haverford.

The town of Wayne/Devon is beautiful and you will enjoy sampling everything this town has to offer.

Booked a King Suite for a week thru Marriott website at $239. per night.
I took the advice of this forum and searched for a K mart in order to locate the Marriott. I have to agree, whoever selected this property site for a hotel should be fired. There is a PNC Bank directly in front of the hotel that obstructs the view from the road.

Check in was a breeze but the rolling bellhop cart had two flat tires and lugging one week worth of clothes and suitcases for me and my wife up to our 3rd floor room was exhausting. I mentioned this problem to the front desk, however, by the time we checked out a week later, the problem was still not fixed. Very lazy on the part of the Hotel and it's staff.

The room itself was nice and spacious with the exception of the bathroom. For a King Suite you would assume it would have an adequate bathroom with good water pressure, however this was not the case. The bathroom was a huge disappointment.

Breakfast in the lobby area was a great convenience. The Marriott puts out a nice spread of fresh breakfast items and priced reasonable at about $10.00 Only complaint was the egg products they use are not fresh eggs. I think they are liquid or powder.

Took advantage of the Gym room. A couple of treadmills are available as well as a stairclimber and some free weights. The bicycle was not working.

The swimming pool was the biggest disappointment: Upon entering the pool and steam tub room, I noticed a bacterial film on top of the "still" water surface of the swimming pool. Upon further investigation, I discovered the pools filtration system was not working. I immediately informed the Front Desk of this problem and they advised me it would be investigated. Seven days later, the problem was still not fixed. I almost wanted to call the health department and file a complaint.

On my way back from the pool room, I noticed the chamber maids cart in the hallway, as I approached closer, the maid on the first floor was pulling clean towels from the cart to place in the guest room; and she wiped the sweat from her forehead with the clean towels she was about to place in the room. I just kept walking and thought to myself, what would possess someone to do something so careless.

The common areas of the Hotel, (Hallways) were never vacuumed during our week stay at the Marriott and the elevator had the same finger print markings and filth on the walls and floor the entire week.

This Hotel lacks management. There is no reason the common areas should not be cleaned everyday. There is no reason the swimming pool should not be operating properly and finally, there is no reason the bellhop cart should have flat tires.

I most likely will not stay at this hotel ever again. There are other hotels in the area with more charm.

As other reviewers have said, this hotel can be a bit tricky to find, but if you follow the advice offered here (look for the Big K -- it's behnd that and to the right), you'll have little trouble. It's a perfectly adequate hotel -- excactly what you would expect of a Courtyard -- no more and no less. Staff were friendly and helpful. The room was clean. Everything worked. The breakfast was good, if not great. I did wish there was wireless Internet in the rooms -- it was only in the lobby -- but wire access was available in the room.

  • Liked — Friendly staff, good location if you are visiting the Main Line.
  • Disliked — Lack of wireless internet in the room.

stayed three nights as doing a show at valley forge convention center. Had breakfast one day, it was fine. The room was an excellent location for us. Housekeeping was very good. Check in with Gary was a breeze. Close to Whole Foods supermarket, Bertuccis, etc. Will stay again.

The 1st thing is to note that this Courtyard is well hidden off to the side and towards the back of a shopping area. If you are driving along looking for a large 'Courtyard' sign which is in front of most Marriott properties, you search will be in vain. Do not ask at the gas station 1/2 mile down the road - the guy was clueless and sent reckoned it was two miles away in the wrong direction!

Just look out for the Big K and its in that shopping precinct behind a bank/cash outlet which actually fronts the road.

So its a convenient location with shops and other stuff nearby.

The hotel itself is a standard Courtyard. Comfortable, free working internet, etc. The gym was reasonably spacious and all the kit seemed to work.
