We stayed one evening of a three night stay, on ND move in weekend. It was 50 mins away from campus, but I wanted to "test stay" for a possible football weekend stay in future. Glad that I did, as we checked out the following night. The 50 min ride on paper, didn't seem far, but it felt like we were driving out of state, away from campus, much of which on dark interstate highway. The area around hotel won't impress. There are a few places to eat, but all average at best. People are friendly, but I've found most of Indiana has friendly people. The room was clean, but pillows felt "empty"...like three feathers in each. The AC cooled the room but didn't remove humidity, so I felt "damp"..in the clothes I slept in and the sheet covering the bed. The bed itself, on second floor, was terrible. We stay at Marriott's all the time, all categories, and no matter the cost, the bed typically is something you can rely on to a degree, based on cost you pay. This bed was a box spring. We were told that we would receive a discount off of the breakfast that is offered, but I was surprised there was a charge, when so many other Marriott's in this brand category, provide complimentary. We had a SUV full of dorm supplies for move in and left it parked overnight in the lot. While the area does not appear to be high crime, it falls short of feeling like you don't have to wonder at all about the items in your car. In summary, the length of the drive from campus (which they detail, so it wasn't a surprise...) the bed discomfort, the super thin pillow, and feeling moist in room from lack of dehumidifyer in AC, made our decision easier...to check out following day. My wife said, you do get what you pay for and while we checked into another Marriott (Residents in) 8 mins away from campus, for $35 more a night, I felt every penny was worth it. King sized beds and pillows, fatastic area around campus, higher end eateries...and FREE breakfast, MORE than made up the difference. The Courtyard Goshen had nice staff and was clean, but I found it to have enough that annoyed more than comforted, to listen to my family, and check out after one night.
