“Excellent Value”
Reviewed January 1, 2008

I travel often and for less than $100 this is a great value. Clean large room with all the extras. Very good full breakfast. And the nicest staff around. Great value.

Enjoyed staying here just 1 night on business. Large indoor hot tub was enjoyed. Clean, new, modern rooms, comfortable bed. Great chocolate chip cookies provided late afternoon into evening at front desk! Try to get them warm! Did not eat breakfast there but could have for $9.95 per person. Nice looking pool too and gazebo area for relaxing but it was alittle chilly that day.

Stayed October 2007

This hotel was very clean. It had nice rooms with the new Courtyard bedding. It was in a good location, right on University Drive close to good restaurants, shopping, space center, etc. However, upon check-in they asked for a $100 cash security deposit. There was no mention of this when I made the reservation. The hotel layout was sort of confusing, 2 wings and no way of distinguishing them. The front desk staff could have been a little more friendly. Overall though, it was a nice place to stay.

  • Liked — Very clean, updated rooms
  • Disliked — The $100 deposit that we were not informed of, some of the staff

I've stayed at the Courtyard many times on travel over the years, and keep going back because I know I can count on it being clean, quiet, friendly and accommodating. Last night my tv wasn't working and they quickly whisked me down the hall to another room, gave me a goody bag for my trouble, and all with a concerned apology. Also, the staff in the restaurant is wonderful -- always friendly and smiling, eager to be of service and right there to fill the coffee pot. Breakfast buffet is good (great oatmeal) and even the coffee is strong enough to entice a Starbucks regular to have a second cup --

I'll be back -

This hotel is definitely geared toward the business traveler. and corporate travel expense accounts. It has a comfortable lobby with internet connections, plasma tv and 24 hour coffeepot. Very quiet and very convenient to all of H'ville/Madison. The rooms were very nice, granite counters, refrigerator, microwave. We found a few of the previous guests p-nuts on a chair, a happy meal toy in the corner, and some gunk on the bedside clock, but overall it was clean enough. Black-out curtains, quality mattresses and abundant down pillows made for a good night's sleep. The fold out sofa was amazingly just as comfortable. Courtyard, pool and hot-tub are very nice for relaxation/exercise. We were in town for a wedding and as a non-business traveler, without an expense account, I did expect a bit more solicitous service and a few more percs for our "tax, tag, and title" bill averaging $155/night. A no frills hot breakfast buffet was not included with our room but was available for an overpriced $9.95 extra charge. I was traveling with my 84 year old parents and there was no senior discount avaiable. For a major chain hotel, during a non-business weekend, this was disappointing. The staff was very polite and accomodating when asked for something. But, there again, for a quality name chain and an upper end room for this market, I didn't think we should have to ask for toilet paper, extra bath linens to accomodate the number of guests registered, or request more coffee packs each morning. Overall, our complaints were minor and our stay was very enjoyable. Huntsville is a business traveler's town, and I don't think we could have found any better accomodations anywhere else. We would certainly recommend the suites at the Courtyard Marriot.

Boy am I glad that I didn't read the reviews of this hotel before staying there, or I probably would have stayed somewhere else. Some comments in other reviews that go back a couple years refer to substandard cleanliness, furnishings and carpets.

Well I want to let you all know that this property must have been extensively renovated recently, because everything seemed sparkling clean and new. My room couldn't have been nicer. New carpet. New furniture. Extremely comfortable mattress. Down comforter with double sheeting. Large bathroom. Big thick towels. Broadband internet connection. It was the nicest under $100 room that I've stayed in in a long time. (My rate was only $70.) Luxurious for the rate.

There was simply no comparison to what I would expect at a Hampton Inn, Fairfield Inn, or Holiday Inn Express... this was so much nicer.

My only complaint was that the front desk could not provide a map of the Huntsville area and could not make a restaurant recommendation beyond the familiar nearby franchises.

I don't know if the entire hotel has been refurbished or just some rooms, but guessing from the lobby area, it looks like they did the whole place. But to be on the safe side, ask for a refurbished room. You will not be disappointed.

This hotel deserves much higher rankings than it currently has on this site.
