Reviewed 31 January 2017 via mobile

Hotel was good but not great. Room was clean and bed very comfortable but lacked good soundproofing. Not as good as other Marriott hotels we have stayed at. No complimentary breakfast buffet or other amenities such as bottles of water in the room.

Nice place, brand new, nice reception area. Great bathroom supplies but did not provide lotion without request. Regardless a nice and pleasant stay. Also, breakfast was amazing. I highly recommend this place if you will be staying either short or a longer stay. Much better than a hyatt place that I usually frequent.

This was a nice place to stay for a few days in Gainesville. We were close to desired destinations and there was plenty of shopping nearby. The room had a slightly funky smell (not smoke or pet odor; not really an odor at all, but an odd smell), but a little Febreeze fixed this only drawback. Otherwise this would have...

The Courtyard is located right next to the Archer I95 exit. You can reach the back road that goes over I95 to the new Celebration mall. We had a comfortable stay. Always hate that they don't have free coffee in the lobby at Courtyards. The staff seemed nice. Would return.

As usual, the rooms and property were clean, but I am seeing more tired Marriott properties. Carpeting and furnishings appear to be dated. Although the carpeting did not need to be replaced from wear and tear. the patterns and colors needed to be addressed.
