Perfect for the money. Reasonable. Very polite staff. Extra clean room with no hassle charges. Great free breakfasts. The staff were excellent. Couldn't ask for a more comfortable bed. Got in early afternoon and it was raining. They had umbrellas and carts by the door. Food was close. Plenty of top restaurants very close with Rosie's Cantina literally across the street.

We originally booked 2 nights through Expedia and paid in advance. Upon check-in we noticed that the room across the hall was having a party that overflowed into the parking lot. The front desk moved us to the other side of the hotel and assured us that they have a strict no noise policy after 10 pm. We had to extend our stay indefinitely due to a sick relative. They were very accommodating in extending our stay. The hotel was clean and comfortable and the staff were all very nice. The café had delicious muffins, breakfast sandwiches, healthy options and great coffee. In the evening I had a quesadilla and was able to relax and enjoy the sunset in the garden while eating. Very nice.

I stayed at the Courtyard on University Drive in Huntsville, AL from May 12 to May 14. We arrived two hours before posted check in time and the hotel was fully booked; however the front desk personnel had such a great attitude. She promised to contact me as soon as a room became available. The room was clean and smelled fresh. There was a 24 hour exercise room which my daughter used early one morning and the free shuttle bus seemed to be always available. A pleasant stay.

We paid at check in for three nights. At checkout, they said they needed more money because rate had changed since the agreed upon price at check in. This needs to be stated upon arrival so guest can decide if they wish to stay or look elsewhere.

This has to be the best run Courtyard I have ever stayed in. The room was clean and well maintained. On the first night the housekeeping staff left a note on the bed thanking me for staying there along with two mints. I have never experienced that at any other Courtyard or chain at that price point! In the Bistro ther were different drink and food specials every night, and on one night they brought in a local craft brewery and had a complementary beer tasting along with a chance to earn extra Marriott reward points. All of the staff were fantastic, friendly and truly appeared to enjoy working there. This Courtyard should be held up as a model for all others to emulate. They have set the bar extremely High. Keep up the great work. You will be my only Huntsville hotel from now on.

The service provide by all staff was excellent. The room located on the 3rd floor as requested. It was also very inviting and warm. The hotel location was within 10 mins of ours venue for the weekend. Just an awesome weekend in a super great hotel..

Travel plan: Long flight in, plan and rest, intense meetings, long flight out. Clerk was helpful in finding very quiet room away from outside and inside noise. Quite a feat given the hotel was heavily booked. Mattresses designed for a very restful night's sleep. Only downside is that locating rooms can be a little confusing -- a minor problem at worst.

We stayed 3 nights for school break. The hotel was comfortable. The checkin was easy. The Cafe had good happy hour specials on food. We enjoyed dinner there one night. The employees were friendly. We did wake up to dozens of ants on the desk near the sliding door. An employee came quickly, saw the ants and moved us to another room. Our new room was satisfactory. We would stay again.

We had a awesome weekend our stay was great. JaNaia and Matt at the front desk were incredible from beginning to end. Shannon the event coordinator was totally awesome as well. They all were very welcoming and meet all of our needs without any hesitation. We thank you all wholeheartedly from the Birmingham Blue Devils!!!

As a frequent traveler, it is a great relief to have such a wonderful place to rest. I was returning home and decided to travel through Huntsville to visit a friend. The staff at this facility was friendly and supportive. I found the hotel easily and was pleased to find so many places to eat near the site if I wanted to go outside the hotel. The Bistro staff/server was wonderful. Despite a sudden rush, she stayed calm, focused and cheerful. When I placed my order, she was dealing with 10 different customers but did not become flustered. Great job. For the building, the outside was well lit, making it easy to locate and secure. The inside was clean and well lit and my room was as expected. My bed was very comfortable as is the standard for Marriott properties. I travel frequently so it is important to not the above information for the hotel.
