I had mixed feelings about our stay. Although the hotel was nicely furnished and the room was beautiful, there were a few issues with our stay. When we first arrived, the toilet in our room was broken and not flushing properly. Employees did ask if we wanted to change rooms, but we were headed out to meet friends only a...

Stopped by on our way home. This was a typical Courtyard which isn't a bad thing as they are consistently good. Our room was clean, quiet, comfortable and functional except for some peeling wallpaper which surprised us as it looked as if the rest of the room was just renovated. Not a biggie. The staff was professional and courteous. We...

Stayed here on a last minute basis and was pleased. Front desk clerk was super friendly and efficient. Loved the room. Big, clean, comfortable bed and nice quality sheets. Free parking and had a top level floor. This is not a typical small Courtyard, it has 7 floors.

This is by no means your regular old Marriott Courtyard. We were greeted with a big smile and had an easy, smooth check in. They have a managers reception with free beer and wine and free food. Not just bar snacks, but that day they were serving roasted vegetables and roast post loin. It was friggin delicious. The rooms were...

Great accommodations! Very clean and friendly employees. Were here for to basketball tournament weekend. Pool was closed for a few hours to a private party but the hotel was nice enough to set up a movie/game room to entertain them. Well done!

Had paid for Breakfast, within the room price, but was told I could only have 1 drink either coffee or other. The breakfast charging schema was not explained, therefore was not sure what else I was allowed. The sum was added then I signed will be interesting to see what ends up on the bill

I must first say the service at this hotel is fantastic, especially their front desk staff. Very helpful and accommodating. However, the furniture was very worn out/stained, the jets in the tub were filled with mildew/hair. We were put on the 5th floor to start but had to be moved to another floor because it stunk of smoke! (Mind you...

Good sized rooms but in need of some TLC. The air conditioner / heater in the rooms are very noisy. The bar serves food which is very average in quality although the staff were polite and gave good service.
