“Alright stay - nice view of beach”
Reviewed April 8, 2008

We stayed at the Courtyard the first weekend of April for a surprise bridal shower. When we arrived at the hotel, we were very pleased that it was literally on the beach.

The staff was very friendly and willing to help out. Once we got to the room (we were in room 600), we were a little disappointed. We didn't have a balcony room (we thought with the price we paid there would be a balcony) but we were happy we were a corner room which limited noise. We had a beautiful view of the beach. Too bad the windows weren't screened in because we would have left the windows open. The room had a nice set up, fridge, microwave, flat screen tv (it was HD ready but wasn't set up for HD - husband upset about that). The bathroom was very nice. Some people complained that there was no space to put anything - we had a shelf that held both of our stuff so maybe things have changed since that last review. The bed was far most the worst. It was the most uncomfortable bed I have ever slept in. In all, it was a very clean hotel.

Another disappointment was lack of restaurant. They were just open during the morning hours for a breakfast buffet. There was a Tiki Bar with a very limited menu. We did not eat there - we ended up going a few miles down the road (I'll get to that later). They did a great job with the shower. The staff was very nice, willing to help and did whatever they could to help the girls out. The food prepared was amazing. Too bad they only cooked for meetings and special events.

Just a word of advice, if you are going to stay there, you have to pay $20 for beach chairs on the shore. I think for the price you are paying for this hotel, they could comp you some chairs. I was so mad I just laid by the pool. So if you can, bring your own chairs.

Also, if you do need to eat (which we all do), there is a Cumberland Farms across the street to get simple stuff (like water/soda/munchies). Dinnerwise, I recommend going to Mulligan's. OMG. The food was great. Our waitress Rachelle was such a sweetie and so honest about everything. We also went to Conchy Joe's - the food was alright but it was a nice atmosphere. And across the street from the hotel is Catherine's Ice Cream. Pretty good stuff.

In closing, it was an alright stay. If I wasn't there for my friend's shower, I would have been more disappointed.

We spent a week in late February 2008 at this ocean front hotel. The staff was friendly and helpful throughout our stay. The facility had been completely refurbished a couple of years ago and was in great shape. We had an ocean front room with views and sounds of the ocean which were a bonus. The breakfast buffet was excellent and reasonably priced. It included a chef that made custom omlettes and a good selection of meats, fruits and cereals. The pool area was nice with a bar that served lunch. For dinner, there were many good resturants within a short drive. We look forward to returning in the future.

  • Liked — Direct beach access
  • Disliked — Frosted glass door on bathroom was weird as it was not completely opaque.

I had a great stay and definitely will be back the next time I have to make a trip to the area. The location was wonderful, a scenic and peaceful setting on the beach. Also the location was convenient in that I was away from the congested area of the business district but close enough to get to that area for my meetings.

Staff service was excellent, rooms were super clean, very comfortable bed, quiet atmosphere, nice furniture and well decorated interior design with a modern look and feel. Impressive bathroom floor and wall tiles too, wish my house had it. Also the Courtyar had a PC with internet access avaiable for guest, this service was a big help to me while I was away from home. The hotel itself was just the right size, not too big like a 30 story condo or too small like 10 room roadside Inn. Grounds were nice and well kept and the neighborhood was safe and within a short drive of places to eat.

Best of all the Courtyard had a reasonable government rate which made my stay here possible and made this the best selection by far for my stay during my business meeting in the area.

I stayed here only one night (a Monday) as I was in town for a family funeral.

Likes:
-Breakfast was nice with friendly service and healthy food options
-front desk staff was superb and helpful
-rooms were nicely decorated and clean
-pool area was nice and clean and the beach was literally feet away
-hotel was quiet

Dislikes:
none really, the bathroom was a little tight with a pedestal sink, no vanity. My wife would have had an issue with that

I would highly recommend this hotel. And one note, the tiki bar had local regulars which speaks highly of the bar staff there.

This recently renovated property is where we spent the week between Christmas and New Year's Day. When we booked with a travel agent, we were quoted a rate for an oceanfront room. The agent requested a higher floor and a full balcony. The request was accepted, but my agent was not advised, until he called the day before our arrival, that a full balcony is an extra $30.00 per night. Only some of the rooms have full balconies. And of those which do have them, several are not private--2 rooms share a balcony. During our stay, we were unable to enjoy the sound of the ocean in the evenings. We kept our door closed due to the incessant chattering coming from the balcony connected to ours.If you stay here, be sure to get the type of room and balcony you want.

Also, a room overlooking the parking lot would not be bad at all if you are on a higher floor. Those probably have a view of the intracoastal waterway.

They still charge $1.00 for a cup of coffee in the lobby. We did not eat at the hotel. There are many decent local restaurants very nearby. The Island Cafe across the street serves great breakfast,. On Jensen Beach Blvd. you can find casual (diners, Dunkin Donuts, pizza), seafood, and even a very upscale restaurant (11 Maple). We liked New England Seafood(order local fish) and Santo's Pizza.

This hotel provided excellent service for the most part, is clean, and well kept. The location is one of a kind in the area, unless you book a condo.

This hotel is immaculate. My wife and I had an incredible stay here. The hotel itself is pretty and very clean. The staff was just absolutely impressive. They really made us feel like valued guests. We will return to thsi property for sure. We had an oceanview room, which was just the best! We fell asleep listening to the weaves crash! Get a balcony as well, well worth it!
Extra Compliments to the front desk staff. They are very attentive to your requests and very helpful!
