Nice short stay

Posted Jan 2, 2017
The hotel is very clean, with spacious rooms and comfortable beds. The only thing that was not comfortable was the pillow, as I woke up with neck pain but otherwise all is fine.

We paid for a room with a King size bed. When we checked in, the front desk service said all of the king size bed rooms were occupied. They checked us into a room with 2 queen beds :(

We have been staying in the hotel and didn't enjoy. One day the water in the shower was not running. The other the toilets were not working. When trying to do laundry, no quarters for the machine were available.

overpriced venue away from city center

Posted Aug 8, 2016
Pros: staff nice
Cons: parking prices
Location: jack in the box if that's your thing not mine
wow for over three hundred dollars I expect a tad more. The room was very small without tea availability in room. I had to park at motel 6 because courtyard allowed trucks with trailers to take up four spots. I thought courtyard was supposed to mimic Marriott experience but should have stayed at motel 6 for half the price wont return to a courtyard motel
