“Not for families, but a friendly hotel for business or getting the train”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 April 2009

Front desk staff were terrific and most helpful with directions, restuarant ideas, and overall friendliness. This hotel sits in the middle of a business park, so is not ideal for families...but close to the Paoli and Malvern train stations for Philadelphia...which we took. Breakfast in the morning was $10.00 but included made to order omelet, juice, coffee, waffles, bagels, fruit. Free computer access was helpful also and appreciated

We came back to our hotel room to sleep at 1AM. We found a cold room. We raised the thermostat with no results. At 1:30AM, we called to the desk. A woman came up and didn't find it cold and fiddled with the thermostat. I called a couple more times and finally requested a new room. She probably moved to the next room, which she claimed was warm. It was slightly better than the first room, but still too cool to be pleasant. I finally tried to go to sleep at 3:30AM. When I got into bed, I found that there were these two birght white lights that were strobing on and off every 20 seconds or so. I tried to sleep despite this and found I couldn't. At 4:15 AM, I called the desk, yet again. The woman said other people had complained about this before. It was the smoke detector and the strobing was mandated by the economy. I had to take a sleeping pill and a Benadryl to get to sleep. A minor negative was the fact the couch was placed a foot or so from the bed and I banged into a couple of times when I got up to go to the bathroom. Outside of this, it actually was a very nice hotel. Really.

The next morning, we spoke with the manager. He knew the problems and was quite honest about them. He even said he told the people who own the hotel that they should get a different heating unit for the rooms when hey were building it. If we went back, it would be because he was so straight with us. Although, since we have had satisfactory experiences with several other hotels in the area, I can't see risking another bad experience there.

I’ve stayed at the Malvern Courtyard at least 5-6 times over the last several months and have never had any issue at all. The hotel is not that old and the rooms are the newer Courtyard décor, HD plasma tvs, beds are very comfortable. Wireless can be a little slow with all the other business travelers but its useable. I’ve not had issues with noise and have had my window open on occasion. As with any courtyard there is not room service or a restaurant but they do have breakfast in the AM. Hotel staff always been friendly.

This is my hotel of choice when traveling to this area.

  • Liked — Clean, newer
  • Disliked — No restaurant/room service - but thats all courtyards

This hotel is 100 feet from PA 29 in between Rt 202 and a quarry. Each night at 9:00PM hundreds upon hundreds of dump trucks travel back and forth on the road all night long as apparently, all of the road work/construction is performed at night. If you are unfortunate enough to get a room in the front of the hotel (odd numbered rooms) it is impossible to sleep. If you have ever heard a truck 'jake brake' or use it's engines for braking, that is the sound you will hear the entire night. If you are lucky enough to get an even numbered room facing the rear, then the noise situation is at least tolerable. The employees here must hear that complaint often as they knew exactly what I was referring to and switched my room easily. Other than that it is a std Courtyard, good accommodations, no restaurant/bar. Just be extremely wary of the noise factor. If you are a stickler for Marriott, there is another Courtyard about five minutes away. I haven't stayed there yet but was there for meetings and it is in a much quieter location.

  • Liked — Proximity to business location.
  • Disliked — The noise.

An excellent little hotel. We had a room block here for my brother's wedding. The front desk workers were extremely pleasant and personable. Everyone was very helpful and nice. The hotel was clean and the food was good. It's a great place to stay!

  • Liked — The friendliness of the staff.
  • Disliked — There really was not anything that I did not like!
