Courtyard by Marriott Riverside UCR/Moreno Valley Area
Ranked #6 of 24 Hotels in Riverside
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed April 22, 2013

Hotel great, room great, loved the view was on the 4th floor facing mountains.

Breakfast buffet outstanding and person in charge most attentive.

However thiis hotel needs to fence (iron gate) the property from the public.

Was agressively panhandled 2x and attempted to be sold stolen goods while having a smoke.

They need to gate it like in Puerto Rico, the neighborhood is sleazy.

Riverside is a very beautiful city and we are very glad you were able to enjoy the views of Box Spring Mountain from your room. We will pass on the great comments as well to our breakfast team, they work very hard and they do a wonderful job. I apologize for the encounters you had outside, we do want all of our guests to feel safe and we do our best to keep the area secure, we will however review our procedures in lieu of your comments. Thank you again for choosing to stay with us and we look forward to seeing you again.

This isn't the best Courtyard I've stayed in. The building, while in decent condition, just has a kind of tired feeling in the hallways and lobby. Nothing wrong with it, but it just has that feeling. It is located near downtown Riverside, which is a pretty cool place (never been there before), with several nice restaurants, as well as the usual college bar stuff. The staff overall was very friendly and helpful, with breakfast suggestions when we wanted to go out, restaurants downtown, and there was just a feeling that they would go the extra mile if needed to provide good service. That's what gave this review a 4 star instead of 3.

This is centrally located, close to the freeway, walking distance from many good restaurants. The staff is friendly, and considerate. They have a nice little bar, a bistro and a morning breakfast!! I would stay there again. Great managers too!! It is just far enough away from the university that you wont be bothered but close enough if your visiting your child. Large guest rooms with micro wave and mini fridge.

While this courtyard has been updated, it is still lacking the usual/new courtyard appearance and feel. The rooms were ok but the beds are too soft. The lobby is decent with a nice bar and breakfast room. The employees were all friendly and helpful. The location was good for restaurants and proximity to the university. Overall, this was an okay place to stay for what we needed to accomplish while in the area.

Property does not have the typical "courtyard layout" but is more of a highrise typical of some older Wyndham properties. Parking is FREE...previous reviewer must have stayed downtown at regular Marriott. This hotel still offers free coffee in the lobby because it has not received the dreaded "bistro update." Area around hotel is OK but try not to venture too far to the east and south at night...pretty sketchy near the RiteAid plaza. Bus service excellent...stops right in front and it is a quick trip downtown to the "fabulous" Mission Inn. BTW, on the hotel property there is an interesting older home called the Weber House where one of the designers of the Mission Inn once lived. It is now home to the Old Riverside Foundation.

Thank you so much for your review and we are we glad you enjoyed your stay here in Riverside. Riverside is always progressing forward and this area has seen many positive changes and there is much more to come. We do enjoy our location by the college and the ease of getting to all areas quickly from our hotel. Side note on the Weber House when it was built it sat in the middle of the orange groves, Pete Weber and his family would actually sleep on the roof during the summer. The Foundation has done a wonderful job with the upkeep. We look forward to seeing you again!

Nice hotel with an attractive lobby. I was only there for a total of 10 hours but I was happy with my room and breakfast spread. It does cost $8 to park. My room was next to the elevator and ice machine which got a little noisy. I was able to receive the Wall Street Journal in the morning.

Room Tip: Stay away from the elevator and ice machines because you can hear the noises throughout the evening.

Thank you very much for the kind review, not sure where you parked at while you stayed with us, but we do not charge for parking here at this hotel, always free. Come back and see us anytime, especially if you need a break from that Chicago winter.
