Stayed here one night en route to Charleston. The hotel is very well appointed and the room was very clean. The bed was very comfortable. The breakfast service was very good. Staff were all very friendly and helpful. I would certainly stay here again.

Thank you for sharing your feedback through TripAdvisor! I am happy to hear that you had a nice visit with us! I will be sure and share your feedback with our staff.

In regards to no afternoon/evening dining options; please come back and visit us in 2014. We are preparing for the Courtyard Bistro transformation. We will be offering breakfast, lunch, and dinner daily. Stay tuned to our website for details!

Parking at the Courtyard was convenient and free. Our reception was friendly and efficient. Our room was very large and clean. The bed was comfortable. The linens were clean. The bathroom was clean, with modern fixtures that worked well.

It was pretty nice except that we were on the street side of the hotel on the second floor. Traffic noise was very obnoxious and it continued until rather late at night.

The room was very large with the sleeping area separated from a large sitting area, which had a nice couch and desk. However, you had to walk through this area to get from the bedroom to the bath area, with some doors that partly obstructed the way.

Breakfast, which cost extra, was very good.

Room Tip: Get a room on the side away from the street.

Thank you for your feedback! I am glad to hear that you enjoyed most aspects of your visit with us. In the future, you can request to be on the non-street side of the hotel. It tends to be a little quieter on that side due to being farther away from the street side traffic.

Thanks again and we look forward to your next visit!

This hotel is a short walk to USC. This Courtyard does not have the usual Bistro but there are plenty of places within walking distance. The staff is professional and friendly. Definitely recommend if you are in the area.

This hotel is very close to USC and provides free parking (very tight)...this would be only reason why I would stay there again. The hotel is nice enough and clean but our room was at the very end of the hall and I swear I heard people and doors slamming all night long. The construction going on outside the hotel on the street was very loud as well. The front desk staff wasnt overly friendly but they weren't mean either. We got a good deal on the rate but would probably stay somewhere else if ever in the area again.

Hello! Thanks for your feedback. I am sorry that your visit was not as good as it could have been. I can certainly understand your frustrations with the road construction that was going on during your visit. Luckily, all of the loud construction is complete and the noise is no longer an issue.
In addition, I would like to apologize for our staff providing you with, what I would call, average service. We strive to provide all of our guests with a memorable experience, but for some reason did not accomplish this during your visit. I assure you that this has been addressed with the team.

I hope that you will reconsider and stay with us again in the future. I assure you that your next experience will be much better.

Thank you again for taking the time to share your feedback through TripAdvisor!
