We've been to this area MANY times and have stayed in many of the areas hotels. I booked 2 rooms at this facility for a friend and myself and our sons who were travelling to hershey park for a "daycation." I was using marriott points, and investigated all of their offerings in the area. This actually required more points than the fairfield (tho the same as the residence inn) and we selected it for the lobby cafe, the outdoor firepit, and the indoor pool. 3 strikes on THAT front. For the second time during a stay at a courtyard, the lobby area was being renovated. The front desk clerk told us "it was going to be worth it" (not for us during our stay!!) and and marriott required it every 7 years. Breakfast (not complimentary) is still offered in a banquet room. We returned from dinner at 10:20 so the boys could use the pool, which was open til 11 per the sign, but it was already closed. Finally, while all courtyards we stayed at offer outdoor gathering areas, this does not. Other "minuses" include highway side rooms being pretty noisy, scatchy towels (a particular peeve of mine) and throw pillow sized bed pillows, a mass exodus of guests at 7:15 AM slamming doors, which was impossible to ignore, and a thermostat set to 64 but a room temp of 72. We also asked if there was any way for the boys to watch a DVD (when the pool was closed) and response from the front desk clerk was "well if you brought one." Alrighty then. On the plus side, the rooms ARE clean, the bed is pretty comfortable, the water pressure is excellent (at least on the 2nd floor), and they have an interactive board in the lobby, which makes finding things in the area quite simple.
