Courtyard La Crosse Downtown/Mississippi Riverfront
Ranked #8 of 20 Hotels in La Crosse
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed April 10, 2013

My wife and I stayed at this Courtyard and found the staff friendly, the room clean and almost "immaculate". The bed was quite comfortable with decent pillows, the room was quiet, and the outside noise unnoticeable. Darkening window curtains were also appreciated - and unlike one reviewer, we did not find the bathroom or living area to be "tiny". TV worked fine - and had a fair selection of channels. Room surroundings seemed little funky for the decor, but welcomed having adequate lighting from lamps - unlike so many hotels where 40 watt bulbs are standard. Towels were almost new.

A bit hard to find without GPS - hotel is in a redeveloped area nearly under the bridge from Minnesota, but ask for a riverfront view. Bistro breakfast is NOT complimentary, and is a bit pricey. Went a mile south to McDonald's! However, we will definitely stay at this Courtyard again.

Room Tip: If you can get it, ask for a Riverfront view and watch the anglers and boat traffic.

I had seen the Courtyard on a previous trip into La Crosse and it looked like a great place to stay. Newer looking property, on the river, restaurants very close - all looked good. So on my last trip into La Crosse, I tried it.
The service is fine and the property is clean. Nice quiet location. But wait, the rooms! This was my second hotel in one week where you could barely walk into the bathroom and close the door because the space is TINY. I mean tiny, like it will give a normal person claustrophobia. The toilet and tub are in one very small space, and the extremely small vanity is outside the door. The sleeping area is on the small side also. I am Marriott Gold, so I have to assume I got at least an average room. The architect who designed this place should lose his/her license. And one more complaint, there is no door on the closet. Really Marriott, is this the best you can do?
If all you care about is a clean place with a great location, try it. If you expect a decent sized and well designed room, go elsewhere. I will.

We have stayed at this hotel 3 times already. We stayed someplace else one visit; not as good! The rooms are nice; all updated within the past year; the beds very very comfortable. The staff are friendly and helpful. Meals are good. We will return as we have family in LaCrosse now. There is a lot to do int his area. I normally travel with hubby; but my last trip was solo. I did not use the spa or room service.

Room Tip: I don't think there is a bad room I've stayed 3 different locations; they've all been go...

In town for the easter weekend. Planned to stay at the radisson riverfront but it was booked due to a concert so they recommended the Courtyard a couple blocks away. Bit more expensive (199 v 129) but it waas very nice. Modern inside, pool and gym centrally locatesD in hotel with deli like eating and bar area overlooking the river. Quiet and clean. Friendly staff?
Recommend dinner at Piggys across the street and breakfast at fayzes. Take the car a short drive to granddads bluff to look out over the city and river

This is a very nice hotel in a location not far from several good restaurant options. Rooms were updated and extremely nice. The staff was friendly and helpful. This is not a 'discount hotel' but I found it to be well worth it. Overall, a great place to stay in La Crosse.

The Courtyard is a clean and friendly hotel. The staff was accommodating and the location was good. We were there for a basketball tournament. It fit our needs well. If you are traveling with a large group there is not a lot of space to hang out in the lobby.

Stayed for two nights in the recently renovated hotel. The sink area is a bit small and the closet is a bit tight, but adequate. Would like a place to lay my suitcase other than the floor. But the desk is great. An empty fridge to old wine. The bed was very comfortable. The new restaurant for breakfast ( no dinner or lunch service) is a great improvement over the old. Very helpful staff that remembers everyone.
