Just a one night stay for two during our final two days in Florida. Very nice and funny staff, the gal was sweet and showed interest and the boy at the desk joked it was not a balcony but a ledge, and it was a ledge outside bottom level. Beautiful hotel. Cat 5, the bed was on the firm side....

Very nice lobby with a waterfall. Friendly staff. I had a junior suite with a king bed and separate living room area. Sliding doors open to a small balcony. About 12 inches deep, useless for enjoying. The 3rd floor bedroom was above an inner courtyard that was full of very noisy guests who played music and yelled into the night....

This used to be a Holiday Inn. I think the original hotel was built in the 60's when Spanish Architecture was popular and it was fashioned so you had the feel of an old Spanish ship. The back courtyard had a small bar which was really unique. This was completely remodeled a few years back into a Courtyard. The old...

This is a beautiful hotel, right on the river walk. Wonderful pool and hot tub, beach on the river and river walk. There were plenty of employees greeting everyone and taking care of any needs. One of the friendliest hotels I've been in lately. Will definitely return.

Being a frequent guest at Marriott properties, I have certain expectations according to the brand. This Courtyard outdoes it's name. The big plus are the location but more than that the pool environment is terrific. It's large, spacious and well laid out with multiple areas for different activities. Staff was great, rooms clean, all good. One caveat: the definition of...

Stayed 4 nights in Jan 2017. Hotel is nice enough and a great location by the river with views across to the boats.Rooms are ok, a decent size but maybe a bit 80s ish. The big let down is that there is no restaurant or proper bar. This means your only choices in the hotel for food is fast food...

I was disappointed by my stay at the Courtyard Bradenton on the river. The amenities were lacking, and the hotel offered little in the way of "extras." The room was comfortable enough, and given that I was on a business trip, I do not want to complain.

Pros: Close to downtown Bradenton. Quiet location south of the river. River walk is right outside the parking lot. The morning breakfast at the bistro was ok (though one day had eggs which where spoilt I think, fell a bit sick afterwards) The housekeeping staff seemed to do a good job except for the last day where there were several...

I am actually a Manatee County resident and live minutes away from this hotel. I've been here for lots of functions, business, receptions, etc. but NEVER as an overnight guest. As our house was undergoing some messy remodeling, we chose to leave the house for two nights and give the construction team full access to our home. Though not a...

We stayed here for a couple nights. Property backs up the river walk path, and is located walking distance to a park and restaurants. The room was clean and there is a nice size outdoor heated pool. We had breakfast at the hotel cafe one morning, but service was very slow so opted on somewhere else the following morning. About...
