Great location on Hwy 63 attached Bennigans resturant and bar that is open late. Lobby is perfect spot for drinks with friends. Rooms are very nice, with couch and desk, fridge and microwave. Nice patio. Staff is friendly and helpful. Also has a Starbucks in lobby, but you do get free coffee in room and lobby as well which is a nice touch. Computers in lobbby for those needing to check emails or print boarding passes. Nice little hotel with extra touches for travelers.

Room Tip: Fills up fast on Mizzou Football weekends.

It's very nice and would recommend it. Very clean and comfortable! The front desk personnel was nice and friendly. Check in was a breeze. There's a Bennigans attached to the hotel and a Starbucks coffee ... GREAT PLACE TO STAY

This is my favorite place to stay in Columbia. The staff is amazing. When I returned home after my last visit I realized a few days later I didn't have my kindle. I called down there and they connected me to housekeeping. They checked my room number, had the kindle and shipped at to me. Also...the attached Bennigan's delivers to your room if you get in late!

This was a good Marriott property in Columbia, Missouri. The front desk staff was amazing during the stay. The room was in good shape, but some of the wallpaper had wear and tear (Room 339). This is located close to the MU campus. Downtown, or the University Hospitals. I would stay here again.

I stayed at the Courtyard by Marriott in Columbia, MO from 7/23 - 7/27/12.

This is a pleasant, handsome and almost new hotel. It's the typically good Marriott Courtyard. The average outdoor temperature during my stay was 102°F.

* Handsome and clean room.
* Coffee maker, microwave, refrigerator.
* The refrigerator was surprisingly quiet.
* The room was quiet, even thought the hotel was full, and the windows faced either the parking along a busy country road, or a major highway.
* The room and hotel DO NOT smell like smoke, and do not have any other odors.
* There was plenty of good electric light in the room.
* There was plenty of natural light in the room.
* There was a light above the bathtub. If you travel often, you'll realize that bathrooms are poorly lit, and the bathtubs are not lit at all.
* The bathroom was clean, and the tub was scrubbed (no mold).
* There is a Starbucks bistro in the lobby, which makes sandwiches and has a bar. (It is a bit expensive.)
* There is a Bennigan's attached to the hotel.
* Both the lobby and the Starbucks area had plenty of chairs, sofas and tables, so that our large group could relax with each other.
* A small good feature, but one which I appreciated, is that the room's trash cans did not have that awkward plastic liner bag. They actually let you use the trash can as it is intended.
* The internet connection is free, but is pokey.
* The bed was very comfortable.
* There is easy access to the main north-south highway.
* The location is not far from Missouri U's campus -- maybe 20 minutes.
* The staff at the hotel front desk, and at the Starbucks in the lobby, was very cheerful, polite, energetic and helpful. ("Yes sir! Can I do anything else for you?") They are mostly young folks from around the area.
* There is enough well-lighted workspace, with a moveable table.
* The in-room coffee actually tastes good.
* The room had a giant bed, and a couch/pull-out sofa.
* The original room assigned to me was too close to the ice machine, and faced the highway. I asked for, and received, a different room. The new room was also too close to the ice machine. But before I could go back to the desk to ask for a third room, the desk clerk, Danielle, was already at my door with a key to a different room down the hall. She said that she'd realized that she assigned me the wrong one, and ran upstairs to correct the problem. Good job, Danielle. I don't mind a mistake. It's all in the cheerful correction that matters.
* The hotel is easy to reach from the (tiny) airport.
* The air conditioner was effective, even at 106°.
* There is a functional pool and hot tub.

* They must make sure to wipe the toilet flush handles. There was a tiny brown spot on it. I didn't check exactly what it was, but I surely washed it with soap and hot water. (Blech! I debated with myself about posting this comment, but it's nagging at me, so I'm posting it.)
* The free internet connection is very slow. It costs another $3 per day to get a connection that is just a little bit faster.
* The rooms face either the parking lot and a busy county road or a busy highway. Ask for the room that faces the parking lot.
* The air conditioner was good, but the blower has only one speed, which is VERY VERY FAST and sounds like a jet engine. The thermostat on the does function, however.
* The pool is too short for real lap swimming.
* There is no free breakfast, is is usually found in these chain hotels.
* There are not enough grab bars in the bathtub.
* The desk chair is too low, and is not very comfortable.
* The TV is hard to see from the bed.
* The TV requires using a difficult screen navigation in order to see regular TV stations.
* The TV remote was hard to use.

Room Tip: Ask for a room that faces the parking lot, not the highway.

We stayed here while my Mother was at University Hospital. The room was quiet. Did not like the way the room was set up though. You had to lay on your side to watch tv. Bed was very comfortable. The pool was nice, however the floor outside the lobby is very slick when wet. My daughter with cerebral palsy had a really difficult time going outside the pool/spa area to get to the bathroom. Breakfast is great.
