Had this review been written a year ago, the Courtyard in Camarillo would have earned 4 or 5 stars -- and my recommendation as the best location and best beds in the Camarillo area, bar none. However, a renovation completed to this property about six months ago has left me much less enthusiastic. Along with the nicer desks and flat screen tvs came new and not-so-improved thermostat controls. As is unfortunately true with many other Marriott properties, this Courtyard has installed thermostats that apparently work with motion sensors -- the upshot being that if you are someone who prefers to sleep in a cool room, approximately every 2 hours during the night in hot weather you will wake up uncomfortably hot & sweaty. The situation is only alleviated if you get up and wave your arms around near the thermostat. Shame on Marriott -- there must be a better way to set up HVAC that is not wasteful. The Camarillo Courtyard also used to have wonderfully comfortable beds that were incredibly supportive for bad backs -- the folks at the front desk didn't think the beds had been changed during the renovation, but my back says otherwise. They also say that some rooms don't have the new thermostats, but retain the old temperature dial on the wall unit. Until someone can guarantee that I won't be stuck with a motion sensing thermostat, I'm going to be seeking lodging elsewhere in Camarillo.
