This hotel is perfect for a one night stay. The Lobby is newly remodeled and the service was top notch. Rooms were nothing special and certinly could use a refresh as the furnishings were old. This is an older style Courtyard property. Breakfast was very good and the Starbucks Coffee was a nice surprise. Would stay here again for a overnight stop....

I've really come to appreciate Courtyard by Marriott. It has a lot of what I want when I'm not on vacation but also not so completely tied up with work that I'm never in the hotel anyway. What are those things that I want? Fast check-in, spacious room, free Internet access, a pleasing sense of style, a good television, comfortable bed, workspace, fitness center, and some sort of amenity that makes me feel happy. In this case, it was lots of cool, lemon-infused water in the lobby and the occasional free cookie or apple in the lobby. I don't really feel like this is good vacation hotel. The pool is a pretty sad example of a pool in an area filled with spectacular pools but if you family to visit or business to conduct in the desert and you don't' want to shell out a lot of money to stay at one of the area's big luxury resorts then this is a great option. There are a lot of services nearby - food, gas, freeway, entertainment. It's clean. All of the staff down to maintenance were effusively friendly and welcoming.

My family and I landed here at 2 AM after we left a Diamondbacks game in Phoenix and were driving to Anaheim. Hector and Chris were very helpful in ensuring that we had the right room for the four of us, since we needed an extra fold-out couch. We were gone by 6 AM the next day. So, I was only at this Marriott for 4 hours, but I give the service high marks!

It is my belief that if something is built according to the guidelines or requirements that are set forth and all of these are met or exceeded, then you must agree that, for whatever it is, it is a quality item. Thus is the case of this hotel. It states very clearly what the hotel is offering and does so in both written word and monetary exchange. I have stayed at all levels of hotel "Quality" and I have been very disappointed at both ends of the spectrum, more so, I dare say, at the higher expected levels. This hotel, exceeded many levels of items of rate value that it makes me wonder what people expect for dollar amount tendered? Just saying....

We stayed here for one night and got what we expected - basic Marriott courtyard property, with a newly renovated lobby, small pool but new outdoor furniture, and friendly service. Our room was a basic space with two queens, neutrally decorated, and had all that we needed for just one night - comfy beds, working AC, and decent shower with separate sink outside the Door (needed for a family of 4). The only complaint I had was the musty smelling bathroom.

Front desk staff was very nice and professional. The location of the property is just a few minutes north of the 10 freeway, off a busy road. You can see sand and shopping centers from your room. Not a scenic view but good enough for a short stay.

So overall it was a good stay, nothing extraordinary but all that we expected!

Room Tip: Request a pool view if available.

Our family stayed here over Mother's day weekend and well, it was a place to crash. We were visiting the area with another family and managed to secure adjoining rooms which was very nice. The new lobby is beautiful, the condition of the rooms however was not the best. First there was the mysterious red stain high up on the wall. Then there was the door between our rooms that was literally peeling apart. Not the best thing to have with 3 small children running around. The funny part was the plastic cups over the lights in the hallway in our rooms.

We tried to use the spa upon our arrival but the dust was blowing so bad that the jaccuzzi was more like a mud bath. When we went down in the morning we were told that the pool " was closed" so we went into town to find breakfast and a pool that was working.

I myself am a frequent business traveler to the area and after this experience, I will wait to visit this hotel again until they have updated their rooms.
