Friendly and helpful staff, great location on the Manatee River with a lovely "river walk" just a few steps out the back of the hotel. Ample parking, comfortable rooms and attractive pool area. The hotel had a big and attractive lobby with sofas and comfortable chairs, and café.

From a customer service standpoint, there is a lot to be desired. We were there for a wedding, asking to check in an hour early because the ceremony was in the early afternoon. After some vigorous typing, the lady managed to get us one of the worst rooms (not honoring the bed, floor, or view requests in any way) in...

My apologies that we did not meet your expectations as with many weddings this past weekend, early check-ins are very important and at times we may not have the exact room type available early but an alternative so that our guests can prepare for the upcoming wedding.

Just did a solo tour of Florida, I stayed at all Courtyards. This was the worst, now shall I say, I'm comparing it to the Jacksonville Beach hotel, that had everything it Advertised. This hotel is a bit run down, I overheard at least 2 complaints to the maintenance dept. It was a bit outdated, and I'm thinking, not in...

I was in the area taking a class and spent several day at the hotel in early Dec. The location is very nice on the river. I got a room overlooking the river which was great. The staff is very pleasant and helpful. The Bistro food is OK. The property is very nice and well maintained. Somethings on the inside...

We stayed here for two days over Thanksgiving. The staff was great, and our room was clean and nice. The beds were very comfortable. The hotel was in a great location. We walked down the riverfront from the hotel. We will return to this hotel!

We were in town for the Bradenton Blues Festival and again selected the Courtyard over other downtown hotels. The location is terrific, just a 3 minute walk to the city park were the music festival takes place. There is plenty of parking out front of hotel, but no valet. I want to emphasize that the staff is a fantastic group....

Extremely diligent staff. The property is average to above average, however the location near the Manatee river is wonderful. We stayed in a junior suite and it was very large and well appointed. Great for a small family like ours.

This is a wonderful place. It's near everything and it's quiet. The River Walk is fantatic! The view of Manatee River is awesome. We didn't eat there but the pool was very nice and the fitness center great. Across the Manatee River is Riverhouse Reef and Grill...very nice eating and viewing.

Thank you to the staff of both the front desk and restaurant for their wonderful service, care and concern in a difficult time for us east coast Floridians.
