Courtyard by Marriott Austin-University Area, Austin
Disappointing Marriott experience
Clearly there were management issues that led to poor service. REception desk clerks didn't respond to many requests, in getting room clean, on 2 separate days, and eventually asked to speak to the manager who was new on the job, and she made it happen and refund 2 night stays. It is located just parallel to major highway, with no amenities close by. Really awkward location Shower head was so low, that only midgets could take shower without ducking down

Not worth the money
Horrible...Staff for Their bistro bar didn’t show up when I checked in Saturday so I had to venture out for food. Bed was absolutely horrible. A motel 6 would have had a better bed than this. Woken up at 7am with kids running up and down hallways kicking walls. Top it off. Front desk clerk didn’t ask me or thank me for anything after check out. All I got was “ALL SET “.. horrible experience and will not be staying with this chain ever again

Good Location, Room was not welcoming!
Stay was ok, Staff was not unfriendly, but certainly NOT friendly! House Keeping was Horrid!

Comfortable and relaxing stay.
My only complaint is that the bathroom was not 100% clean-- shower curtain liner and tub should have been cleaned with bleach or similar. Found a few stray hairs near the sink upon close inspection. Not really a big deal. Overall, my partner and I were very pleased with the room/stay. The local construction made it a little difficult to access, but we were pretty centrally located to all activities we had planned for the weekend.
