We stayed here on our way to Disney. We arrived late-after midnight. Room was clean. Only negative was that reservation showed they would have pack and play for our 1yo and when we arrived the attendant could not find it. So we had to improvise with pillows on the floor since we had 5 people and two beds. We used...

We had a reservation here but arrived after the cancellation deadline. We wanted to put some more miles on and asked not to be charged. The manager was very accommodating and we continued on our way. Also, it looked like a very nice Courtyard with a central location.

Pros: - The location is nice. It's just off I-75, is tucked back just enough that there's not much noise from the main roads. Plenty of dining options are walkable - if not a very short drive/Uber ride away. - The lobby has been modernized as many couryards are and their dining area/coffee shop are nice. - Room was clean,...

Austin, Texas
Reviewed 28 April 2016

This place costs some dollars -- almost twice what it costs for a nicer room on the sand in Daytona. Everything is extra -- no free breakfast. The room was clean, but small and the air conditioning unit was extra loud. I really expected more for the money and was disappointed.

This is a typical Courtyard. Hotel lobby was nice and the staff were very helpful and friendly. It was a little difficult to find. Located behind the Steak and Shake. Room was comfortable and clean and everything worked. The price was a little high however that seems to be the going rate in this town. Will probably stay here again...
