Staff was terrible! Super understaffed and slow. Had to get mad to get extra towels. Was there 3 nights and was refused service for a room cleaning. They said without a prior commitment they could not do up the room or make our beds. Went all 3 days with no maid service.

Frustrating that the elevator is really far from the only entrance. Toting luggage and grandkids was very difficult. Also it was over 90 degrees and we we gifted one tiny bottle of water and no ice machines were working.

Nice property , clean, convenient ( everything is near by exp.. restaurants, shopping, etc.....) Staff didn’t give much info about services offered besides informing you where your room was.

I have been staying at this property for several times already and was unpleasantly surprised that I have to pay for the parking now. $4 bottle of water and no longer free parking. What's to like?

Only stayed for a quick overnight. Front desk was friendly and welcoming. Room was clean and comfortable.

The only thing that came up was that there was a stain on the bed sheet. Other than that we were very happy with our stay.

Pleasant and delightful. Great dining experience @ the Bistro!

Disappointed/ took pics of unsanitary conditions . See pictures

Nice hotel. Clean, helpful staff. The food was good at the Bistro. Would definitely stay here again.

Good, clean. convenient. We enjoyed the space and the easy access to the hote

Room was comfortable although the sitting furniture could be greatly improved. Bar and kitchen okay though limited. Very quiet and staff friendly and helpful.

Great staff, clean, heated pool and spa. Quiet with shopping within shopping distance. A little confusing to get to but easy once you drive it once.

Great location, hotel staff was very friendly. Pool was a little dated, and the jets in the hot tub only worked on a half side. Overall I would book again here.

Excellent staff. Stayed in remodeled room which was nicely done. Minimal noise and dust from remodeling on the first floor.

I would recommend friends and family to stay for sure!

I really love the location for where I am working in town. Overall the staff is extremely helpful and professional. I rated it down for the value. To pay close to $300 for a Courtyard Marriott for the night is ridiculous. Also, the amenities are standard Courtyard with the upgraded bistro. Very clean and a good night sleep. Just wish that there was a standard rate for these places that do not sky rocket like this.
