I should've known by the guests standing outside and hanging around the hotel that we were in for a ghetto weekend, thinking that the inside of the hotel would be better, we approach the front desk and the receptionist was flat out RUDE! She would cut you off as you're talking and talk over you. When I asked for an extra blanket at check-in, I didn't get one until the NEXT day. Our room was NOT cleaned our entire stay Friday until Sunday afternoon! When we came back to our room on Saturday it was dirty and the entire hotel smelled like marijuana but we finally received the extra blanket we asked for a day later. At check out another RUDE receptionist, and non one answers the front desk at all. 80 calls and no answer. The noise outside as well as inside the hotel was ridiculous! Our stay in Houston was ruined by this hotel!

Amazing hotel! Upgraded, super clean and very friendly staff. Front desk accommodated me since I was going to teach my virtual elementary class from the room the next day. I asked for a view since some of my students have never traveled outside of NJ. They were very excited to see a Houston, NJ. Breakfast was bagged to go. Market was pricey and bar was closed due to Covid. No pool. Parking was $38 plus tax for overnight. I’ll def come back!

We arrived late and were promptly booked into our rooms. The rooms were really nice with brilliant Showers. The view was of a car park but I just wanted to sleep so that was no problem. Breakfast in the morning was a burrito with a choice of either a hot drink or juice. The burrito was quite a size and definitely hit the spot. When we were picked up by the free bus transfer, the gentleman driving was outstanding and a thoroughly nice bloke.

I like Marriott and the Courtyard brand is very good. Service at this location was terrific. Anything I needed, I received quickly. Front desk team was wonderful. Room was clean. I could tell that it was well run...good management...motivated employees. The downsides: Bed was old, lagged in the center; towels were old, even threads were coming off. However, I can handle some of that but not the smell. It’s clear the hotel was covering up something bad. There was a smell in the lobby and my room. The hotel sprays something to try to make it better (smelled like Frabreeze) but in the end, it’s toxic. I could not sleep and woke up with a headache. I feel badly for the employees who must endure this everyday. Not good for their lungs.

Checked in for a 3 night stay and was looking for something central as I didn't have a car. This place fits the bill. Very spacious corner room on the 4th floor! In house Starbucks serves as the bistro. Valet parking only at $18/day. On rhe red line Metro light rail. Convenience store nearby with plenty of good dining options around. Beds comfortable. No room service. Friendly helpful and quick check in. Fast large elevators. Co-located with 2 other Marriott branded hotels in the same building. Would stay again if in Houston.
