Here’s what you’ll need to know. The hotel and rooms are clean and well kept. The bedding is comfortable. Unlike most hotels that use window/wall units to heat/cool these are pretty quiet. If you’ve stayed at a Marriott Courtyard those units sound like an aircraft taking off. They do a good job keeping the place clean given the busy weekend conditions. The WI-FI is sloooooooow. It took 3 minutes to load a simple Google search – not acceptable. The computers in the business center were usually taken by kids play games – understandable but be advised if you’re hoping to print anything. The hotel is close to town, campus and major highways. The front desk staff was excellent. The breakfast room staff was generally nice although there was one person there who clearly was feeling the stress of a busy morning in the breakfast room. Be advised there’s no restaurant within walking distance. Our only strong negative was issues with other guests. My family had been up since 4AM that morning so we were very tired. From about 11PM there were a bunch of children running between rooms on the 4th floor, slamming doors, etc.. I have kids and I understand that kids will be kids. However, their irresponsible parents should have told them to hold down the noise and respect that there were people trying to sleep. Think they could do that – NOPE. Instead, they were having their own little party. My wife tried to complain to them but they just shut the door as she approached. This went on for about 2 hours. Unbeknownst to us there was a kids swim meet in the area and the hotel played hosts to a number of these families. I only wish the front desk would have warned us beforehand so we would have been prepared. So double check before you book here. Otherwise, it’s a nice hotel with good rates.
