As usual, the rooms and property were clean, but I am seeing more tired Marriott properties. Carpeting and furnishings appear to be dated. Although the carpeting did not need to be replaced from wear and tear. the patterns and colors needed to be addressed.

We stayed 2 nights to attend a retirement party. It was convenient to the highway; but very noisy. The saving grace was that the traffic died down in the late evening and overnight and so allowed us to get some rest. The room was updated and clean.

Not bad, room was clean and ac worked well during the 99 degree weather. Hotel is well kept, but a $169 per night, it was just average. Staff was friendly. The hotel is off of the main road and a little hard to find. More like a 100-125 per night place.

We had a reservation here but arrived after the cancellation deadline. We wanted to put some more miles on and asked not to be charged. The manager was very accommodating and we continued on our way. Also, it looked like a very nice Courtyard with a central location.
