Recent guest reviews

Easy to get to off the freeway, and close to downtown. Everything at the hotel was simple and easy(even late check-in), the staff was polite, and the rooms were nice. Only problem we had was the toilet didn't flush very well so we went ahead and inform the front desk at checkout. She thanked me and told me she would let the maintenance know.

We were unable to check in for over an hour and a half past check in so we started unhappy. At some point during the stay we located a pair of sun glasses just slightly under the bed which had to have been left by a previous hotel guest. Says a lot about the cleaning staff!!!!

I had booked 2 rooms on seperate reservations for back to back days. First Reservation: Upon check-in I was told that the room I prepaid for was unavailable and they gave me another room which was not to my liking at all (double bed instead of king bed). I ended up getting violently sick within two hours of checking in. The next morning, my husband went downstairs and spoke with a the new desk person in the morning who was extreamly accomodating. They allowed us to stay longer in the room past check out and told us they would call us as soon as the first room was available. Within an hour they called us and we were able to check into our room early. All my husband had to do was go downstairs and sign the paperwork. I was extreamly grateful for the way the morning shift desk clerks handled this and if I wasn't so sick, I would have thanked them in person! They deserved to be recoginzed for their impeccible hospitatlity.

I spent more money expecting more than I got. Walking to the room the hallway was dirty. You could see the carpet had not been vacuumed for a while. When entering our room it was decent but when we went to take a nice relaxing bath the tub was noticeably dirty so shower it was. Also small ants throughout the room as well. The lobby was redone you could tell but the outside side was rundown. I expected more for the price I paid or I would of just stayed at a motel 6.

Your typical courtyard. Clean and nice and convenient. Loved that there was a microwave and fridge in the room. The only downside was the gym is far less than desirable which is important to me. It was a tiny room without air conditioning. But good hotel otherwise.

Since our reservation was special rate, the Marriott system showed it as cancelled. We were lucky to have someone who was familiar with this nuance, and was able to address it right away. That was awesome! Plus, our teenager inadvertently signed up for the paid internet and the front desk immediately addressed the issue to revert us back to the free internet. We were still billed, but again, the front desk immediately resolved the issue. We were extremely grateful for the quick, easy and efficient service. We did not meet any unfriendly staff here, which was very refreshing. The location was great for us, as we could drive around the UCR campus for our teenager. As well, as drive to other campuses nearby. There are a good number of eatery and grocery stores nearby. That was very convenient. We were traveling as a group of 8 with 2 rooms for 8 days. We were assigned rooms adjacent from each other. That was great too. We didn't think to ask prior to check-in. We would definitely return to this Marriott.

Great place and friendly staff, We really enjoyed the lobby lounge area where watched television and mingled with other hotel guest at the Bristol.

Should have better food and hotel is under remodeling so it is a little messy. However overall it is a good hotel and will stay again.

The hotel was nice and clean. Close enough to downtown riverside so that it was in a good location.

Everything was great. But we didn't get a free breakfast like most hotels offer. They were refurbishing the floor below us which is a good thing for them. Ours had already been refurbished. Nice and very clean.Very comfortable beds.

Comfortable and quiet room. The staff at the Bistro in the lobby was fun to chat with. Convenient location.

The hotel was convenient to the UC Riverside campus, where my meetings were being held. The room was comfortable. However, the hotel was undergoing renovations so the restaurant was closed. Breakfast was set up in the elevator hallway. Once the renovations are completed, I'm sure the total experience will be improved.

I didn't stay long but the Marriott was just what I needed. I have come to trust their brand and it has never disappointed.

Enjoyed our stay, rooms were quiet and clean. The beds were very comfortable and surroundings were pretty. The staff were helpful, only one complaint but not Hotel's fault, someone pulled the fire alarm at 3 AM so had to go outside otherwise it was a nice stay.

The rooms are tastefully decorated and the beds very comfortable. It was nice to have a microwave & frig in room. Internet was fast.

The only problem was the business center computer was exceptionally slow to get internet access. The Bar was great and well used by the patrons Ramon, behind the bar is very helpful, friendly and is well worth the visit.

It was great! We where able to check in early and the location of the hotel was great. It was close to a few shops and strip mall. The room was nice and clean. Even thought we where there for a music festival we didn't spend a lot of time in the room but I gotta say the bed and pillows where super comfortable. Specially after a long day at the concert it was nice to come back clean comfortable bed.

I checked in late as my flight got delayed. And I left early in the morning. In the dark of the night, the hotel looked clean. The manager was kind enough to allow and extra guest in the room. The room's sofa was a pull out bed which was nice. However, the room lacked a fridge which is unusual for a Courtyard.

We stayed at this hotel because it was close to the University of Riverside and the price was right. We enjoyed our stay here because it was convenient, very clean and the staff was exceptionally nice. Our daughter will be attending UCR in the fall and we will be visiting frequently and this will be where we will be staying each time we visit providing space is available. Thank you so much.

not worth the cost.

I spent more money expecting more than I got. Walking to the room the hallway was dirty. You could see the carpet had not been vacuumed for a while. When entering our room it was decent but when we went to take a nice relaxing bath the tub was noticeably dirty so shower it was. Also small ants throughout the room as well.
