We have stayed many times at this Courtyard, on our way to parts north to visit relatives. It is consistently clean, comfortable and friendly. The rooms are nice appointed, with plenty of conveniently placed outlets for charging electronics, and free Wi-Fi. The pool and patio area are nice and well-kept, with plenty of seating outside. The new lobby is beautiful and comfortable.
Since they have switched over to the "Bistro" for food service, however, the breakfast has been somewhat chaotic. It is not really clear where one is supposed to stand to order, or what one can have if breakfast is included in the room price. Having to stand at the counter to order makes for some confusion and is much slower than the old breakfast buffet. This is not a complaint about this specific hotel, as Marriott has apparently made this change in other Courtyards. I just don't think it was well thought out in terms of flow and organization. It is nice to have food service available, but as others have mentioned, we've checked in around holidays and found the Bistro closed in the past.
