This was a great hotel for the price. They really bring Disney into the experience with a great little on site shop. The continental breakfast was so worth the price! They even had Mickey waffle maker. Not a far ride to Disney parks. They offer a free shuttle. The pool and hot tub were so nice after a long day....

Whenever we can we stay at this excellent property in close proximity to Downtown Disney. The hotel is clean, has excellent management, nice rooms, two morning papers, a very reasonable buffet breakfast, well lit outside parking, NO RESORT FEE, a free shuttle bus to and back from Disney, a large swimming pool with whrlpool and much more!

This was our first time staying at this courtyard. I have stayed at other courtyards in the past. The found this property a bit dated and old. We stayed March 2- March 8 2017- 3 of us in a one bedroom suite. We found the room awkward. There is a couch in the living room against the wall. There is...

What a disappointment this place was. As a Marriott frequent traveler this location was sub par. Overpriced compared to comparable hotels in the area. $50 for a simple breakfast makes this not much different than the Disney parks for a family breakfast. Rooms and decor in desperate need of updating. Air conditioner in room was ridiculously You need to push...

This hotel is located across the street from Disney Springs and its surrounded by local restaurants which is nice to have so one does not always have to eat on Disney grounds. It's an older property showing its age as the light fixture in the bathroom was rusted, there were 2 cracks in the shower wall, a phone kept beeping...

This hotel was the equivalent of a 1980's style Howard Johnson (which I later found out from the front desk that it was in fact a Howard Johnson). Nothing of what you would expect from a Mariott. When we 1st arrived, the front desk service was kind of snobbish & borderline rude when explaining the room deposit. We weren't able...

I had a 2nd floor room and faces over the little kidney shaped pool (one of the 2 pools on site), so I do get the pool noise when there are some excitements there. The folks at the front desk are very friendly and helpful. The room comes with a TV and a fridge. There is also a Hertz office...

The staff was very friendly and helpful. The rooms were clean. It was located near restaurants. It is dated and not really what I was expecting from Marriott but we were comfortable. Parking was easy as well. Like other reviews, I would say to consider the Delta (the other Marriott) if you are planning to stay for a few days....

The front desk staff was beyond helpful and personable during check in.. We stayed in room 326-a one bedroom suite for $109/night..the room was spacious and clean. The bathroom and vanity area, however, require an update.. While not horrible, it's visibly worn and dated. Breakfast was average and should be included in the price of the room.

While not terrible, it certainly was below what I would expect of the Courtyard flag standard. It is certainly not of the current standard as it doesn't have a cafe (instead offers a Fairfield style buffet breakfast except charges $12 for what is typically included in the room rate). Inside was fairly dark and dated looking. Upside is that it...
