Reviewed yesterday NEW

from the minute we walked into the door, we were treated like guests! Maranda was our personal host and did everything to make us feel special. She gave us coffee, a charger for our phone, suggestions for lunch, and provided amazing service.Everyone at the hotel went out of their way to be friendly and accommodating!!!!

Several positives and negatives of our one night stay here. First of all, this is not your typical Courtyard property, as mentioned in previous posts. It is very dated, some rooms have access from the outside parking lot, others from inside, I feel like this was once another hotel that was bought by Marriott and refurbished but I don't know...

We spent the night on Friday, November 4, 2016, and was appalled at the mustiness of the room and the overall hotel. The bathroom electrical fixtures were absolutely filthy, and had not been cleaned in months/years. The light switch was almost black at the bottom as well as the electrical outlet fixture. All of our electrical chargers fell out of... More

I have stayed twice at this location, and it may be my last. Of any Marriott property, this one is the least representative of the brand. It is musty, dusty, dirty smelling. I attributed this during my first stay to it being winter and just after football season. Now it is fall (and still in football season). I don't know... More

I stayed at the Courtyard during a football weekend. There are many great aspects of this hotel. First, it has a great location. I did not move my car one time.

If you have to stay in Athens this is one of the better options but as Courtyards go this is pretty lame. We arrived after a long 16 hour day only to find that like a previous reviewer our tub didn't drain. We were switched to another room which required repacking, etc. One would think housekeeping would know whether the... More

Usually, Marriotts are located in what appears to be a safe area, and I am not saying the area is unsafe. But the area does appear to be questionable with some nearby homes which appeared to invite indigents. The staff was first class and quite helpful.
