“Edges out the HI Ex down the road with better quality in nearly all areas, but no free breakfast is the trade off..”
We really enjoyed our stay at Courtyard. We stayed at HI Ex. down the street this time last year. Both are great properties, but at courtyard the quality was bumped up a bit. For example, real glass glasses instead of just throw always. At least 13 places to plug in electronic devices, 2 nice LG TVs with at least some digital channels. Just a slightly more comfortable stay. The staff was as good as it gets! But there is a slight trade off. They do offer breakfast, we didn't eat there but it is not free!. So the next trip if we bring the kids we might stay at the HI simply because free breakfast for 4 is a good value, even if the room is not quite as comfortable. The courtyard outdoor area was nice with a fountain, putting green, & fire pit with plenty of lounge room. The pool looked nice & was being heavily used by a bunch of kiddos. It is indoors and must be at least somewhat heated, there was some mention of construction in other reviews, but it is really not close to this property & was no noise at all. If I had to pick on a few things it would be this .. The rooms were adequately quiet , but could have been a little better. The AC blew very cold but there was no continuos run setting for the fan so it cycled on and off. Wished at least the fan could have stayed on to drown out hair dryer from adjacent room and doors closing across hall etc. The shower was a little better than at HI, but still washing hair was a bit of a challenge.
But hey, I am really being picky on these things as bed comfort was excellent. There is a mini fridge & microwave. The room was very spacious and was more like a suite than just a room. Great job Courtyard and you earn my first all 5 star review !!

Than you for taking the time out to write such kind words about us. We do strive to be the best hotel possible and it is nice to hear from guests that enjoyed their stay. And I can understand about the breakfast being included and being important when trying to feed 4 people. I would like to point out, just incase you were unaware that we do offer breakfast packages for just a few more dollars a night that would include breakfast for 2 adults and 2 children under the age of 12. Thank you again for taking time out of your day to rate your experience.
