This hotel is your typical Courtyard Marriott experience. I drove from Newark airport for a two day business trip. All in all, the hotel is fine. The only complaint that I have is the shower and odd smell in my room. Regarding the shower, the shower head itself can only go as high as roughly 5' 8". I'm just over...

The front desk staff had a lady named Lauren who went above and beyond in helping my meeting with my international colleagues run smoothly. My room was spacious with an updated design. Our meeting space, also spacious but we had catered meals and the food was mediocre at best. The gym is acceptable but you must arrive early in the...

Stayed here three times (!) in a ten-day period. Rooms are efficient if utilitarian -- typical suburban Courtyard. In two of the stays a colleague and I spent hours and hours in the lobby/restaurant area collaborating with two laptop computers. The space was excellent for getting this kind of work done and the staff was very supportive. I did not...

There are three categories of Courtyards in my travel experience: New ones, middle aged ones that have been upgraded, and "originals". This one fits in the category middle aged and upgraded. For the middle aged upgraded Courtyard, this one is in the better half of those. The AC units don't make too much nose, the AC unit smell is kept...

I stayed at this hotel for a business trip in late September 2016. The hotel appearance on the outside and in the lobby was great. When I checked in, I was given a room on the first floor. When asked if I could switch (as a woman traveling alone, I prefer to have a room higher up), the gentleman advised...

So I was in town for 3 nights Sept. 16-18 with my 4 kids, check in was ok, nobody at the desk for 10 minutes, but went smoothly when they finally came. When we got to our room (369), it looked very nice, smelled good. So we unpacked and got ready to go out to dinner. As we were getting...

Staff is attentive. Many rooms have been recently updated. Bathrooms are older but water pressure is good. Towels are standard. Bedding is nice and clean. 3 floor hotel and the elevator is fairly slow. Easy to get to coming south on Rt 1 but requires an extended U turn to reach coming north.

The staff was nice, and the beds were soft. The only reason I didn't give it 5 is because the soundproofing was not the best, but better than 90% of US-1 hotels. Close proximity to market fair mall, and Montgomery made it prime for shopping, food and entertainment. NOW: the room- The fridge worked. The shower had random scratches and...

Basic Courtyard although the beds were not Marriott newness or quality and the gym had equipment that was not functioning. Not a bad Marriott but not great by any stretch. I would stay again though for the location.

Spent the weekend here for a girls softball tournament. It was a relaxing hotel and very clean. Hotel staff was helpful and courteous after a long day of softball. Only wish the breakfast was earlier as we never got to enjoy it with our early morning start times.
