A Courtyard in need of...

A bigger bathroom. A hot tub. Great people. For the money - stay somewhere else. They are getting ready to renovate. Will that enlarge the bathroom? Will that install a hot tub?

One night family stay

Nice and clean room and the bathroom. The sofa bed was comfortable for kids to sleep in. We needed something to spend the night only and this was a functional, clean and nice hotel. Location was great right on the highway and a short drive to downtown. Would have liked a free continental breakfast but there a plenty of options right outside.

Nice Place for a Staycation

When you need a quick get-away from the daily hustle-and-bustle this is a great place to go. The rooms are clean, the beds comfy, and the staff helpful.

Attending Graduation

My family and I did not have a good time. The room smelt old and moldy. The bathroom was very small (had problems standing inside and closing the door). The face basin was located outside of the bathroom. The location of the hotel was very difficult to get to. It is located just off a major highway intersection.

Should rent a car

Quiet and clean room. Courteous hotel staff, and good offerings for breakfast . However hotel was misleading about being in University area, more than 3 miles out. I should have rented a car.

Good value!

The hotel was a very good value for the money. The hotel was very easy to access from the highways, airport and from downtown. I would stay there again!
