Rooms are nice size and very clean the staff is extremely friendly and helpful, the location is the only thing that I can be "improved". As a business traveler I will most likely give this hotel another visit in the bear future.

Beautiful property. Friendly front desk. Complimentary papers, coffee, etc. Convenient location to highway n airport. Food store n trader Joes nearby. Clean. Sunbeam iron was made for a guy n simple to figure out how to operate. Only issue was pesky wi-fi that was either slow or kept dropping.

Our family uses all of Marriott's products and the Courtyard fits into our plans just fine.

Stayed at this Courtyard while visiting family. Centrally located and very convenient. A traditional Courtyard by very clean and staff very friendly and welcoming. The only downside is that the pool is outside and the wind seldom stops blowing in the area.

I recently stayed at this property for six nights and loved it! It's a nice hotel with well-appointed rooms, a large, gorgeous outdoor pool area, a nice restaurant and bar, and super friendly staff.

We stayed here on the night of the 24th December. Unfortunately, our first room was above, or very close to, the ventilation system for the restaurant, and the low frequency humming/grinding noise was going to make sleeping an impossibility for my other half.

Besides the awkward and somewhat unsmiling and unhelpful service , this courtyard lives up to marriott standards. It's very well kept, and clean even though it's decor is dated, hasn't had a renovation in a long time, perhaps, but the bed and bedding were excellent. The bathroom clean. The pool area was very clean, the whole hotel was clean and...
