I love the location right on the river walk. Get a room overlooking the water. The balconies are very narrow with no room for a chair. The rooms and lobby have been updated and bring new life to an old hotels the staff is very friendly.

Our grandson from Southern California was visiting us for a week. He has been in the Pacific and Atlantic Ocean, but not in the Gulf of Mexico. We live near Disney and it is only an hour or so to the Gulf. So off we went... The Marriott Courtyard Bradenton is a great place. We checked in with a very... More

Much as you would expect from Marriott, good clean efficient and the price was lower than I expected for a last minute walk-in. Staff were genuinely friendly and really helpful. Bistro was surprisingly good and also less expensive than expected. However, at the end of the day, you are in a hotel to sleep so the very loud AC was... More

Got an upgrade to a suite on a top floor with a lower price than reservation. Friendly staff. Lots to see in Bradenton like an historical village and linear park along the water and an extensive artistic community. Half way back home from a day in Sarasota at the Ringling Museum and Shelby gardens.

Nice hotel, stayed one night, quiet, comfortable, nice staff. Older style bed but not bad. Good AC. Has a Starbucks in the lobby, but that's it. A little hard to find but not too bad. Off the main streets in what looks like a mixed office area.

We booked a room as part of a group local to Bradenton (we live here) for a friend's retirement. The hotel was close to the celebration location, we had had a shuttle bus to bring us to and from... and it beats a DUI... so for that purpose of having a place to sleep, this hotel was acceptable and did...

The property itself is very nice and right on the river. The lobby, bistro and pool are clean, modern, and comfortable. The room we had was very clean and modern finishes. I did not like that our room faced a parking lot and the balcony is so small you literally just stand on it. The biggest annoyance was the air... More

The riverfront in Bradenton is beautifull and this hotel is great,very well kept and the staff was great. It would have been even better if it had a better breakfast choices. It has a mini restaurant that offers Starbucks coffee but very small selection of food. But the hotel is in an awesome location and everything is very close by.

We booked this hotel not knowing what to expect. We loved what we walked into when we arrived! The lobby is open, bright and cheerful. And the employees are the same. The level of friendliness we experienced is unmatched anywhere else we've stayed. The front desk people were professional and very helpful. The rooms were spacious and we had room... More
