“Comfortable choice”
Reviewed February 9, 2013

There aren't a lot of choices in Decatur. This Courtyard is a good option. The room I had was dated, but still very comfortable and very quiet. The only disturbing sound was the refrigerator, but that could be drowned out by the air conditioner/heater.

Breakfast was OK, but would have been included at many hotels.

The exercise room leaves a lot to be desired. One day on the water cooler was empty. On all four days I used it there were no towels to wipe down sweat. Neither of the treadmills incline function worked. On day four the bicycle would not power on. It's obvious that they do not routinely maintain that room. On the plus side there is a window to the outside, so at least it doesn't feel like a closet.

Would I stay there again -- certainly.

We stayed here three nights and were very pleased with this property. The front desk staff was courteous and responsive, the rooms were clean, and the bed was quite comfortable. Our room had a pleasant balcony. We were most impressed by the breakfast. There was not only an expansive buffet, but also omelets made to order and good coffee.

If you are visiting Decatur for business, I highly recommend this Hotel. It is clean. The staff is very friendly and they have corporated rates for area business.
In my case, free cooked to order breakfast was included.

Stopped at this hotel in transit on a long trip. Location is a good 15 minutes off the interstate. There are several hotels just a couple exits to the south of Decatur that are right off I-65.
Hotel was clean and the staff courteous. We were in a 2-queen room. We requested a crib for our infant and were given a broken pack-n-play that was clearly unsafe. They quickly got us a new one, apologized and promised that it would not be given to future guests.

The room was clean. The bathroom was dated but clean. TV was a large flat screen and complimentary wireless internet was provided. Did not have a chance to use any of the amenities. Breakfast on site was about $10 per person but we did not eat there. There are several restaurants in the vicinity of the hotel.

If traveling through this area again, I would probably not get so far off the interstate but otherwise it is a fine hotel.

At one time this was the new Courtyard design but now it seems dated. Rooms are the typical old courtyard design. Hotel is very clean, staff very freindly, especially the servers at breakfast; great group of girls!
Hotel needs to enlarge exersise room and upgrade linens, towels are very worn.
Some rooms have microwave and or fridge which is nice for longer stays.
Best hotel in Decatur.

We stayed here for three days while visiting family in the area. It is probably the best hotel in the area, although not the best Marriott facility we have visited. The room seemed clean enough, but we did notice mold in the grout along a small area of the tub/shower. The bed linens were on the flimsy side and towels a little thin. Shower curtain was showing age as well. The tiles around the area of the breakfast bar looked like they seldom got cleaned or moped. The staff were helpful providing a quiet location, but often the front desk was unattended. The breakfast selection was good, but not consistent in the amount charged. First two days no charge, and third day when my husband went alone to eat, he was charged $8.95.

Room Tip: Ask for room away from elevator, as there is a bell that rings everytime it arrives at floor.
