Check in and check was easy and quick. Very clean. Rooms are spacious and quiet. Linen was clean and comfy. New and upgraded bathrooms. Breakfast is provided and has some pretty good options. Bar and dinner is available till 10 pm. Only downfall is that there is no fridge in the rooms and no water was provided. You have to buy even drinking water from the mini market.

I stayed here for one night en route to a camp about an hour away. It was clean, quiet, and comfortable. I would definitely stay here again if I were in the area. There were food options in the lobby, along with a small store if you needed anything.

Room spacious and clean, except the bathroom floor was filthy along door and the bathtub. The corners and tops of baseboards were also really dirty. The breakfast was a rip off. We thought that it was complimentary, but was $32+ for a bowl of cereal, a cup of fruit, a cup of fruit and yogurt , a three supposed cups of Starbucks coffee. We drink Starbucks coffee all the time and none of the three of us believed that this was Starbucks, My grandson took one sip and said taste your coffee, it’s definitely not Starbucks. I had to throw mine away because it tasted burnt, I gave it to the girl at the counter to toss it because it wasn’t drinkable and I didn’t want to put it in the trash and she never offered to reimburse me. I would NEVER stay here again!!!! It would have been less expensive and much better at Cracker Barrel.

Very nice hotel and staff. We where making a road trip from Maine to Florida and stayed at the Courtyard on the way down and back. It’s very conventional located right off the interstate, clean rooms and a very friendly staff, Dory at the front desk and Shelby at restaurant/bar made us feel very welcome. Would definitely stay again.

Very nice hotel, with a good location just off I-81. Dining and shopping locations very close and convenient. Check-in was a breeze, as was check-out. Quiet and comfortable room, nice bed, mini fridge worked well, as did the microwave. Would definitely stay again when in the area.

Used the mobile key with no issues. There is shopping close by along with a Wendy’s and Chick-fil-A down the hill in front of the hotel. There were some renovations occurring but I experienced no inconveniences because of it. Hotel staff was polite.

We won't be going to another Courtyard even if they are giving it away free. It was nasty. Hair and trash on the bathroom floor and a trail of shoe prints. We contacted the management and we a form letter. Stay away!

This Courtyard is really struggling, the facilities are subpar along with cleanliness. Sent in a review and received a form letter response. The hotels in the area were busy while this hotel only had a handful of guests. Really thought Marriott’s standards were better than this.
