A buddy recommended this hotel for a reunion of a bunch of us who went to college in Flint, and it turned out to be a great choice. The hotel is at the south end of town, very close to both major north/south highways. It is also within walking distance of a passable brewpub.
The staff was pleasant to work with - they supported our gatherings in a nice lounge area. The lounge includes access to food cooked to order, so we got a variety of heavy appetizers delivered by a very helpful staff member.
The facility is in good shape, showing little wear. I appreciated the through-the-wall air conditioning unit because it was pretty quiet, held the temperature really well, and the fan remained running instead of cycling on and off.
The bed was comfortable, the TV was great. I dislike the weird remotes that are often used in hotels that place the "Order" button on top instead of the on/off button - just an annoyance of mine. The room included a small sofa and a desk. There is also a small fridge under the sink. The fridge was cool, not cold, and included no capacity to freeze anything. It was better than not having a cooler, though.
The bath was spotless. The shower included a bow-shaped frame for the shower curtain and a good shower head.
Parking was very convenient.
I arrived on a Friday in mid May. There was a throng of teens that seemed to be parading back and forth through the hotel. They were harmless, but a bit out of place. This did not happen on Saturday night.
I sure missed having access to a free breakfast, but given the choice of breakfast or access to the cooked-to-order food in the lounge, I was glad to have the lounge available.
In short, I would not hesitate to stay at the Courtyard - Marriott if I find myself in Flint again!
