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.

If this hotel isn’t new it’s very deceiving!!! Everything looks fresh and updated. The rooms are large with a nice fridge and microwave. Water is so hot with great pressure and towels are pretty soft for hotel standards! Soft clean sheets and ample amounts of pillows. The gyms is pretty large for a hotel gym I was most impressed! Staff was friendly and noise was kept under control considering the rowdy group of wrestlers and parents staying here. You can see a chick fila and a Red Robin outside your window...what more could you ask for!

I went to visit my boyfriend for the week and as a Marriott member, I've experienced better service other places. The rooms were nice. However, due to Covid they aren't cleaning your rooms unless you request it. I placed a call to the front desk for a cleaning. Housekeeping only did a partial cleaning because the front desk told her to. I didn't know there was a difference in cleaning because the front desk didn't ask me when I ask for housekeeping. Then I was excited to see they had a Starbucks in the hotel, but it was down my entire visit which was 5 days because the refrigerator went down. And the sad thing is, they have a Starbucks near the hotel that doesn't even deliver to the hotel. I feel the hotel should have made some adjustments since they couldn't accommodate customers due to equipment failure. I did like that the hotel was quiet even with many guests.

I stayed twice in Feb. and March. I guess it's the best Marriott hotel in the area but it's a lousy hotel. Bathroom was clean but in one stay the sheets were dirty and needed to be replaced, the room is dark and the rooms are small. The night staff didn't seem to know anything and were odd. One time the wifi didn't work all night. I had to stay in the area a third time and I chose to stay an hour away just so I wouldn't have to stay in this lousy hotel. And btw I'm a Marriott ambassador and I've stayed in some nice Courtyard, but I recommend avoiding this one.

I have stayed multiple times at this Courtyard, and it's top-notch. They take great care with their covid protocols. The hotel is really clean and incredibly convenient to Interstate 81, shopping and a short ride to downtown. I travel a lot and this is one of my favorite Courtyards.
