“A Nice Relaxing Weekend”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 15, 2011

My boyfriend and I came to La Crosse as a quick little weekend getaway for my birthday. We stayed in a jacuzzi room and it was so relaxing! The bed was so comfortable and it was so nice to be able to order in food from Piggy's right across the street! It's also in a good location. It's close enough to walk to the bars and restaurants if you prefer, but far enough away from Third Street that you don't hear the noise of loud, obnoxious drunks in the middle of the night. We didn't try the bar they have in the lobby, but it looked inviting! One little warning, though. Some of the "Riverview" rooms have more of a view of the underside of Cass/Clinton St. bridges than the river. Use caution when trying to reserve one of those rooms!

This hotel is in a perfect location on the Mississippi River in downtown LaCrosse. The staff is very nice, parking is free, rooms are modern and clean. Breakfast is provided but costs extra. The only problem I had was the bring lights from the neighboring bridge making it a little hard to sleep... still worth staying there.

We stayed at this hotel to just take it easy and walk around the historic downtown. The weather wasn't great so we spent a lot of time in our room relaxing. The room was nice - nothing fancy but we weren't expecting that so worked great. Location is really good - not a far walk from bars, restaurants, or shopping. Nice riverview rooms. Was neat to watch the barges go by.
The only thing I was disappointed in was the breakfast. I believe it was $9.95 per person for breakfast buffet. Don't know what happend to Courtyard's free breakfast but I would never pay this for a hotel breakfast. Lots of great restaurants you can walk to for cheaper. Try Fayze's - short walk away with excellent food at reasonable prices!
I would definitely recommend the Courtyard to anyone staying in LaCrosse!

A nice place to stay. No free breakfast though. Beds were comfy and clean. The view from the window on the river side was very nice. I mean, it is a dirty shipping river, but fun for kids if there is a lot of river traffic.

We stayed at the Courtyard, two nights from Oct.15, it was a very delightful experience-we had a river view room, which has been renovated-the room was clean, well appointed, spacious with a great view of the Mississippi-it really was a treat to sit and look over the bright autumn sun, watch the boats speeding by or the tug boats lazing over.
The staff was friendly, helpful, professional. I left my jacket in the lobby, I called, a young woman answered the phone, they had the jacket, and just sent it FedEx the very next day. The lobby is not huge, but, it was nice to sit there watch, the Badgers beat the Buckeyes!

My husband and I booked a King jacuzzi room with a "partial river view".. This was booked at least 6 weeks in advance. However when we got there to check in at approximately 430 (check-in is 300) we were told that those rooms were first come first serve. What is a reservation for if you aren't getting what you're supposed to be paying for? Bait and switch anyone? Considering we chose this hotel for it's view being that it is higher priced than the nicer holiday inn nearby. We still stayed being that we wanted a night away being that my husband is deploying for afghanistan in 3 days.
The room was outdated... Furniture very worn. Bedding looked like it had been washed hundreds of times, very faded and just looked drab. The whirlpool left little to be desired... I've seen better at the super 8. It needed more cleaning around the edges as did the shower and toilet. There was dirt under the overlay on the bed. The whirlpool was so loud that you were unable to hear the tv in the room without cranking it to the highest volume. Then at a approximately midnight there was terrible noise for about a half hour that sounded like very poor plumbing. Made it difficult to sleep. The only view we had was of the underside of the big blue bridge. All this for a whopping total of $215 a night.... We were not impressed at all.... The one and only good thing was a comfortable bed even though it needed better pillows and bedding. Overall it was a very sad looking room.
I wouldn't recommend a stay at this hotel to anyone. This hotel gives the Marriott name a bad reputation.
