Very dated but clean the issue was the hot room. The stairs were unkept with webs. The ceiling above me (271) appeared to have been leaking. Being morbidly obese it was awful between closet...nightstand. And with a cramped area WHY TWO CLOSETS???? Will not ever stay again.

The noisiest hotel room I've ever stayed.

Posted Jun 22, 2016
Pros: Convenient location
Cons: Noise reduction -- comging from the highway as well as A/C unit.
Courtyard has been one of my favorite hotels when I travel. Unfortunately, this particular Courtyard was not what I expected. The most serious issue was the noise coming from the adjacent highway. Somehow highway noise is amplified, maybe because of the adobe structure, and sounds like in the middle of motorcycle racing track. Maybe it was just my room. On my way out, I saw something on the table. I thought they are mint candies in small plastic bags. Thet were ear plugs (see photo). I kind of chuckled but thought instead of complimentary ear plugs, I wish I had been forwarned.

Miserable bed

Posted May 6, 2016 on Orbitz
Bed was like sleeping on the floor, hard as rock, noise was horrible. I will not recommend this hotel to anyone and have no plans on staying there again. Hair in the sink and shower area. Mentioned it to the staff and they offered no help in addressing the matter. There are better hotels in the area that are a lot less expensive.

Pool was clean and warm. Staff responded quickly to requests and checked with us after we got to our room to make sure things were satisfactory.
