“Very nice hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 3, 2012

The courtyard by Marriott Dayton-University of Dayton is great. It is conveniently located right next to the University of Dayton and the Miami Valley Hospital. I stayed one night and it was great. The bed was very comfortable, the room was clean, and there was free wi-fi. I would definitely stay here again

Note: The price and location alone make this hotel worthy of a repeat visit - would stay here again.

We arrived at the hotel after a long day of visiting colleges in Ohio and was second in line to check in at the hotel. We stood at the counter in front of the desk attendant for what seemed like at least a minute before he acknowledged us. He was not very friendly and did very little to welcome us to the hotel. We noticed a sign on the desk that warned hotel guests that they should not leave valuables within view in the cars. It worried me a bit though we never felt unsafe in the area and appreciated the warning. The hotel is a very nicely appointed Courtyard located across the street from some of the indoor athletic facilities of the University of Dayton. It is a 5 or so minute drive from the university itself. Lots of shopping and restaurants within a 15 minute drive. By the way, the person at check out was a lot nicer! I would definitely stay here again if (for some reason) I find myself in Dayton.

sevenstates,

Thank you for taking the time to comment about our hotel and our Dayton area. We are glad that you had a pleasant stay. Please accept our apology for the unpleasant check-in. Things may get hectic around the hotel, especially with check-ins, but that’s no excuse for lack of acknowledgement. We’ll be sure to reinforce with our team the importance of great customer service. May your college visiting adventure continue to be enjoyable for you and your family.

Best regards,

Janie Loughran, General Manager

This was the second Courtyard I stayed at this month that exceeded expectations! The place was packed for the Dayton Hamvention when I was there, but the desk staff was still exceptionally friendly, and I received a room on the top floor as requested. The hot tub was hot, and the pool was refreshing. The room decor was up-to-date and nice -- better than a typical hotel in this price range.

We had breakfast provided. They were making omelets and had some scrambled eggs and bacon/sausage out, but the rest of the food was pretty typical of what would have been free at other hotels. Nothing special, but convenient none the less.

My only complaint, and what makes this not a 5-star, is that the bed was somewhat uncomfortable. They had a tiny mattress pad under the sheet that kept curling up, and the pillow top mattress was kind of saggy vs. soft. I had trouble sleeping both nights I was there due to the comfort of the bed.

Then again, perhaps I'm just being picky. Next time you're in Dayton, stay here. You won't be disappointed.

Hello TheInternationalLine and thank you so much for your review. I’m pleased we exceeded expectations, as that is exactly what we want to do for every guest. I’ll commend the desk staff on your behalf, we are grateful to have such an amazing team. I will look into the pillow top and mattress pads right away, we want to make sure all our guests are well rested when they leave! Thank you again for taking the time to write the recommendation, we look forward to seeing you on your next trip to Dayton.

We stayed here at this Marriott for a wedding. We paid extra for a jacuzzi in our room. The room was very clean, nice jacuzzi, shower was very nice. Everything was perfect but NO HOT WATER!!!!!! I brought it up to the management but they didn't seem to care to much.

My wife and I stay here several times a year when we visit family in Dayton. The hotel rooms are always well maintained and clean, though on several occasions I've had to request another room due to the lingering odor of cigarettes in non-smoking. That's more an issue of rude guests ignoring the rules, but it is still nice to walk into a truly smokeless room.

Staff are always friendly and accommodating, and have typically been very responsive to any issues we have had. The gym and pool are spartan, but do the job as long as the hotel isn't booked to capacity, which seems to happen a lot since there are a lot of sports tournaments in Dayton.

One thing that definitely works in the Courtyard's favor is how much newer and cleaner it is than the vastly less pleasant Marriott behind it. We made the mistake of staying there on our first Dayton trip, and it was a nightmare. It was completely full with families and kids due to a national baseball tourney being held nearby. Kids ran up and down the hallway all night, and our room was worn down and grungy. Never again.

Ever sin then we've stayed at the Courtyard, and will continue to do so when we visit Dayton.
