Used the mobile key with no issues. There is shopping close by along with a Wendy’s and Chick-fil-A down the hill in front of the hotel. There were some renovations occurring but I experienced no inconveniences because of it. Hotel staff was polite.

Great resting place after a long trip. The room was perfect. Everything was clean and comfortable. Close to several restaurants. Staff was friendly and helpful. Exactly the kind of place I look for but rarely find. Would definitely recommend.

We won't be going to another Courtyard even if they are giving it away free. It was nasty. Hair and trash on the bathroom floor and a trail of shoe prints. We contacted the management and we a form letter. Stay away!

This Courtyard is really struggling, the facilities are subpar along with cleanliness. Sent in a review and received a form letter response. The hotels in the area were busy while this hotel only had a handful of guests. Really thought Marriott’s standards were better than this.

If this hotel isn’t new it’s very deceiving!!! Everything looks fresh and updated. The rooms are large with a nice fridge and microwave. Water is so hot with great pressure and towels are pretty soft for hotel standards! Soft clean sheets and ample amounts of pillows. The gyms is pretty large for a hotel gym I was most impressed! Staff was friendly and noise was kept under control considering the rowdy group of wrestlers and parents staying here. You can see a chick fila and a Red Robin outside your window...what more could you ask for!
