The employees (everyone) did everything they could to help us with a smile. The beds were most comfortable, the air conditioner was wonderful and the sheets and towels were obviously meant for us. Can't complain about anything!

My family stayed recently at the Courtyard Sarasota University Park/Lakewood Ranch because our son had a crew regatta at Nathan Benderson Park. I had a slight problem with the room and was very impressed with the attentiveness of the front desk staff. The woman and man (sorry but I don't have their names) were extremely helpful, understanding and concerned with...

I'm still hoping that Courtyard will start trying to be as nice as the Hampton. This is a nice enough hotel that is in a comparable price point to the Hampton, but just seems to think it's better. The brand is consistent, but so is the Hampton and at the Hampton I get breakfast (with GF options) included and decent...

We chose this hotel because it was close to the house that we rented in Anna Maria Island. We are Marriott members, and we were able to use our points for this stay, and I seriously could not believe how nice this hotel was. I think I was expecting something less because we were using our points. The pool area...

Here for a sales meeting, this is my second stay here. The first time was an overnight stay so I really didn't explore the hotel much. Very nice courtyard with fire pit - decent area with bar (I can't rate the food because we didn't order from their bistro). There is also a laundry room on the premises so that...

My family and I stayed here for 4 nights. We have 2 kids ages 10 and 6. We were there to visit my Grandmother who lives in Bradenton so we chose this hotel due to the proximity to her. We had a room on the first floor which was fine for us. The room was very spacious with 2 queen...

Stayed for 3 days and was just right. The front desk check in guys were very helpful giving dinner suggestions and were very pleasant all around. Room was clean and plenty large. Wish Courtyards had free breakfast but they don't and we knew that going in. Refrigerator in room so could buy our own 😀

Courtyard in Lakewood Ranch is an ideal hotel to stay for a variety of reasons: 1) Location is right off I75 North/South 2) Is minutes away by drive or walk to dining and shopping places 3) Very quiet location with very little noise from outside 4) Staff at hotel is EXCEPTIONAL and accommodate your requests.

My room was large and bright with a gracious spacious bath. The bed and pillows and towels comfortable and spotless. The in- room coffee maker was the best I've had in any hotel - ever!
