Granbury, Texas
Reviewed 6 October 2015

We stayed one night at this property and it was nestled in a quiet spot among lots of trees. Another great feature - you could walk to Publix, Target, restaurants without crossing a major highway. Property is a typical Courtyard with lightweight towels and skimpy bars of soap, but I come to expect that. Beds are always comfortable and room...

We have never stayed at a Courtyard by Marriott and found the hotel to be very clean and the staff very friendly. We had a huge room on the main floor and everything was perfect. We will be staying here again.

Got there on Friday evening. Nice hotel. Clean room. Good wait staffs. No free breakfast. But they have Starbucks coffee in the lobby for you to buy. Overall nice hotel to stay. Quiet and close to interstate. Also only 3-5 minute drive to UFL campus

This is an incredibly expensive hotel that is in terrible need of updating. After finally getting some sleep, I woke to a damp, smelly, and musty room. They have these big loud wall units that crank out air all night long that feels wet. Everything I have feels damp this morning. The mattress is old and not comfortable. The pillows...

The Courtyard by Marriott Gainesville is a decent mid range hotel in a good location in Gainesville. The rooms are somewhat forgettable in the generic, Marriott sense but for a quick night or business trip, however, this is a good choice. One standout here is the breakfast. It is prepared to order and unlike a lot of these midrange “breakfast...

Coconut Creek, Florida

Prior to arrival, there had been a broken fire sprinkler at the property that subsequently flooded the 2nd floor and first floor. They had dozens of blowers setup to dry the water which were loud enough that you couldn't hear yourself think at the restaurant. We were not able to use the exercise facility as it too had been flooded....

We have just completed our second stay here while visiting UF. The hotel is convenient - right off of I-75 and walking distance to several stores and restaurants. The staff was very helpful and friendly. Room was very clean. The restaurant food was good. 5-10 minute drive to campus. Would stay here again.

Stayed here for one night on our return trip from North Georgia. It was pretty much what you would expect from a Courtyard by Marriott, a clean, comfortable, and convenient motel.
