“Welcoming Staff & Pleasant Service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 19, 2013

Working with the Sales Coordinator at the Simi Valley Courtyard Marriott was to block rooms for a school event was easy and pleasant. The staff was always welcoming and helpful with any request that I had. Our school has used this hotel twice this year and twice last year due to the exceptional service that we received. The rooms were always clean and its a convenient location.

I've stayed at the the Courtyard in Simi Valley several times on business and have never been disappointed. The service from all facets of the staff (front desk, cleaning, cafe) is always welcoming, courteuous and helpful. On more than one occasion, I was welcomed back to the hotel by name after a long day at work. This is not a Ritz Carlton, but the attention to detail goes a long way.

The property is a few years old, but is very well maintained and clean. The staff was attentive to my requests for night time room cleaning, as I was working overnight shifts several days in a row and sleeping during the day. I got good rest each night.

Adequate exercise room with a few machines, towels, TV, water. A really nice outdoor seating area with fire pit and comfortable chairs, nice touch. Outside pool.

The cafe was a pleasant surprise. Made to order breakfast, lunch sandwiches, and dinner were all very good and reasonably priced. Service in the cafe was very good.

Only a few miles from the Reagan Library with several restaurants located nearby. Well done, Courtyard!

We stayed at the Simi Valley, CA Courtyard during a visit to the Reagan Library. The hotel is about 4 miles from the Library. There are several restaurants within walking distance to the hotel. It is right off an expressway, so it is easy to get access the LA freeways. The staff were very friendly. The accomodations were very good, the room was laid out nicely and spacious.

I stay at this property 6-7 times per year and the service is always outstanding - front desk, bistro staff and housekeeping. Standard updated lobby with bistro, lounge area and free wireless.
Gym is OK with a couple of treadmills, elliptical, bike and weights. The property shares parking lot with a few restaurants so food is in walking distance if you don't want to try the bistro fare.
Rooms have recently been refreshed and mirror other Courtyard properties. As other reviews point out, the wired Internet in the room is free but slow. Hope they update to wireless soon!!!
Of hotel choices in Simi Valley, Courtyard is my #1.

Room Tip: Ask for rooms away from the elevators to minimize noise. Stay on the 4th floor to eliminate noise f...

When traveling with a family of 5 it is always a bit of a challenge to find a hotel that works for us. We were thrilled that this Courtyard would accommodate our family. It has been newly renovated and the rooms & lobby were quite nice. The best part had to be how confortable the beds were. Seriously soft!! Location is also close to good food and was a hop, skip, & a jump from our next stop which was the Regan museum.

the hotel is well located next to the CA 118 expressway, the room was very confortable, and the people super courteous, we arrived close to 8 pm for a late flight and the room was ready , they offered as courtesy breakfast, we weren't able to enjoy it, because we woke up late but it was nice from them.
it was christmas Eve when we stayed. the hotel is 1 hour from the LAX airport.
Since my famly live arounf there, I would visit again soon thanks

Room Tip: located next to CA 118

Standard fare with the new lobby. The hallways show there age and have the 80's green carpeting Courtyards used to be famous for. The rooms though have been refreshed. I spoke to a worker in the elevator and they have done the refresh one room at a time. New carpet, paint and touch up. Furniture remains from an earlier upgrade, the couch in my room was dirty and kind a lumpy, but the rest was real good and bathroom very clean and well lit. The towels were less than great as they were very thin and well washed/worn but other than that it was good. Would stay here again.

The bad- the firepit ourdoor seating area they show in the picture and have in the back was covered and the pads to seats removed so it was unable to be enjoyed. The pool is very small and they had lots of leaves and debris inside, and it was not windy either day.

I still need to get used to the lobby though at night. People lounging around, and jazz band playing. Ended around 9pm on Friday, so as I returned from the terrible restaurant Howies (now becoming Overtime, accross the parking lot) they were wrapping up. WOuld have been nice to sit and relax, but had no idea.Staff should make that anouncment.
