“Very nice. Good in every respect.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 21, 2011

We had an expiring certificate and decided to get away for a night.

Nice hotel. Clean and well maintained. Rooms was nice and well appointed. Sofa was nice. Bed was comfortable. Linens were clean and crisp. Shower was good. Good TV. Good inernet connectivity. Whole place was clean and bright. Clearly an upscale Courtyard, with great landscaping and good furnishings.

Nice views of the river which, while not the world's prettiest river, is nevertheless fun to look at.

Also had an attached bar/restaurant.

Folks who like Courtyard will be pleased with this property.

I do not have ONE complaint. Rooms were large and clean. Beds VERY comfortable. Service pleasant. Pool beautiful. And price was reasonable.

If you stay here, go to The Waterfront for dinner.

Room Tip: Get a riverfront room!

Nice location and good rates in the off season, Hosts a number of wedding parties due to it's location. On river, near good eats, friendly staff, adequate lobby, above average workout room.

Staff has always been very friendly here which makes a huge difference.

I have actually stayed here a number of times in past couple of years since I found this one.

Will be back. Weekend rates can be inviting off season.

Room Tip: Join Marriott Honored Guest Club or call hotel direct with questions.

We enjoyed our stay at this hotel. Clean rooms, friendly staff, close to Anna Maria Island. The only complaint we have is that it is very close the the railroad tracks and it seemed as if a train passed every half hour through the night. If you are not used to that kind of noise it could be an issue.

Have stayed there each of the past three years for Spring Training. Past two years were very good all around, but this year it's pretty clear they're trying to cut costs. And it shows. Most obvious is that the standard rooms no longer have refrigerators. (Where did they go??) Also, the convenient cafe off the lobby is now *closed* between 1pm and 5pm. The rooms are still clean and comfortable with very little noise, but the housekeeping made a few mistakes. For one, not replacing dirty glasses, and more surprisingly, changing the sheets but not the pillowcases. (We thought this was a mistake and called them on it, but the second time, they did the same thing!) Overall, we'd say the positives much outweigh the negatives, but based on years past, this is the first time we've had any disappointments.

Overall, reasonably nice. Adequate free parking. Clean inside & out. Well maintained property with excellent riverwalk.

Concerns are minor, but on the poolside (east), there is Ktraffic and hospital ambulance siren noise, westerly facing rooms overlook a building undergoing remodeling...should be done soon. North rooms face the river, but there are trees partially obstructing the view, particularly on the lower floors (there's 5 floors).

Railfans will appreciate the proximity of the CSX bridge accross the river, but rail traffic is light so train noise is minimal. The Tropicana Juice train and light engine move was all we saw in 2 days.
