“The Courtyad Experience - Dated”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 April 2014 via mobile

The Courtyard by Marriott on Montage Mountain in Moosic, PA is in an awesome location. Easy on-off access to Interstate 81. The shops at Montage Mountain (which are really great), many nearby, well known national chain resturants, and only minutes to Old Forge, PA - home of "The Best Pizza in the USA". The hotel is located next to the MLB farm league PNC Park, home of the baby Yankees. And of course, Montage Mountain Skiing. On a more boring note, there is an office park here, and I am sure many business travelers. So, having said all that, why only four stars? This place is quite dated. Nasty old cookie cutter furnishings - the 70s called and want their color scheme back! Smallish flat screen TVs. Bathroom fixtures woefully out of date. HVAC is LOUD! So you may still be wondering why four stars, then? Well, the bedding is fine. Nice pillows. Very quiet and clean room. Slept like a baby. Top notch staff - very professional, very courteous and welcoming. Location really is fabulous. Price was right. I'd stay here again in a second.

Stayed here for weekend basketball tourney. The front desk staff was outstanding! Maria took very good care of us. Large, clean room. Good water pressure in shower. Complimentary breakfast was average. The staff seemed to handle the large crowd well. I would recommend this property.

Our family went to Florida for March break and this is the last hotel stay before returning home. Nice and very relaxing stay.
Few things:
Washroom fan very loud.
Heater/AC fan kept waking us up due to the loud noise.
Please fix the above 2 then our family will give 5*
Great staffs at front desk on March 15th evening when we arrived. Very help full. Sorry didn't catch the names.

Thanks to all staff at this hotel!!!!

Thanks!!!

On February 23, 2014, My Husband and I checked in into the Court Yard Scranton in PA. I wanted to let you know what an AMAZING experience our stay was. We where greeted by Maria at check-in with a great welcoming. She went above and beyond her call of duty. We celebrated a belated Valentine’s Day as we dropped off our son at the University of Scranton for a Royal Night in which he experiences a pre college visit. Scranton University choice of Hotel was the Hilton, which is a walking distance from the University. Yes, we missed the activities at the Hilton but Maria made it well worth it. She upgraded our room, as well as find us the special rate for Scranton University families. We had an amazing conversation about our families. We truly felt, as we had been friends forever. Our room was perfect. Breakfast was fantastic although adding waffles and pancakes would be a great addition to the menu. One downfall was the pool and Jacuzzi were out of order which was a bit disappointing but that didn’t damp out night. The hotel was right of the highway about 6 miles away. Not far at all. The hotel was very quite, clean and very comfortable. Thank you Maria, excellent costumer service. If my son decides that Scranton University is the right fit for him, Courtyard Scranton Wilkes-Barre, Scranton, PA would be the first place we search for future reservations.

My husband and I recently spent a snowy weekend at this Marriott. We had a wonderful time. The hotel was bright, clean and had all the needed conveniences at a great price. The rooms were comfortable and our King room had sofa, chairs and coffee table along with a large frig and microwave.

The staff was wonderful all of them desk, restaurant, cleaning and a big shout out to Al and John the shuttle bus drivers who were friendly and informative and took us to Montage ski resort even in the snowy conditions.

An especially nice touch was the complementary breakfast provided to us on our second day for my husbands birthday. We were originally only scheduled to stay one night but added an extra at the same special rate we had for the original.

The lounge area is nice with a large screen tv and comfortable chairs and we enjoyed a glass of wine as we chatted with staff and watched the Olympics.

I can't say enough about our weekend experience and we look forward to it again next year.

We wanted to take the kids to Vermont for a long ski weekend, but with soccer and birthday commitments that wasn't in the cards. I decided to drive as far north as we could from Phila for a quick overnight at Montage Mountain. We weren't looking for anything fancy for the overnight stay, so our expectations were zero. This Courtyard Marriott was the right location, and the promotion with lift tickets made it a good value. That was all we were looking for.

I have to say that once we got there, we were both shocked. The front desk staff was excellent, check-in was quick (even though it was a busy time), the room was large, clean and quiet, the pool & hot tub were great for the kids, and the "Bistro" restaurant/food shop was a great concept (order & pay like a pub in England; sit and eat at a table off the lobby or take back to your room).

This weekend also included Valentine's Day, and with the kids at a sleepover near Philly 2 nights before, we stayed at one of the "nicer" hotels downtown whose name begins with an "L." Without a doubt, this little Courtyard Marriott by Montage Mountain was 10-times nicer by all measures!

I stayed at the Mariott on business. The first room they gave me had sticky stuff all over the tables. It's not that hard to wipe them down especially when you're a hotel with guests. The mirrors were filthy, and their were stains all over the couch and floor. I complained to the downstairs and they gave me another room across the way. However the next room welcome me with a bandaid on the wall. This grossed me right out and completely ruined my experience. When I called in the next day, the guy at the desk responded "sorry to hear that" and hung up. I am not please at all because of the way I was treated let alone the effort they put in to clean there rooms. I do not recommend.
