Courtyard Bradenton Sarasota/Riverfront

Reviewed 7 October 2013

Much as you would expect from Marriott, good clean efficient and the price was lower than I expected for a last minute walk-in. Staff were genuinely friendly and really helpful. Bistro was surprisingly good and also less expensive than expected. However, at the end of the day, you are in a hotel to sleep so the very loud AC was really annoying.

Room Tip: River view is nice, but there can be a lot of traffic noise from a nearby bridge. Additionally early...

Got an upgrade to a suite on a top floor with a lower price than reservation. Friendly staff. Lots to see in Bradenton like an historical village and linear park along the water and an extensive artistic community. Half way back home from a day in Sarasota at the Ringling Museum and Shelby gardens.

Room Tip: High floor over looking river

Nice hotel, stayed one night, quiet, comfortable, nice staff. Older style bed but not bad. Good AC. Has a Starbucks in the lobby, but that's it. A little hard to find but not too bad. Off the main streets in what looks like a mixed office area.

We booked a room as part of a group local to Bradenton (we live here) for a friend's retirement. The hotel was close to the celebration location, we had had a shuttle bus to bring us to and from... and it beats a DUI... so for that purpose of having a place to sleep, this hotel was acceptable and did the job. Bed was nice and it was clean. But, two main issues we found, however: first, there is NO complimentary coffee in the lobby or any common area. This is extremely strange. Every other hotel we've stayed at had self-service coffee. This hotel has a partnership with a Starbucks so you have to pay for each cup of coffee even if you're staying there! For the price of these rooms, I found this nickle and dime approach in hospitality to be a lousy policy. There is also absolutely no complimentary breakfast food, not even some bagels or biscuits. Pretty sad. The other thing was the lack of control the manager(s) have. We were sitting out by the pool and some rowdy people were playing with a ball in the pool, the ball hit our table and a few people a number of times and then one of the adults (who displayed extremely immature behavior) ran into the chair of one of the wives with us and nearly toppled her to the deck. Needless to say, we had some words with these drunk and belligerent people, but we also notified management and they pretty much did nothing. Overall, like I said, an average property and disappointing. Would I stay here again? No way. This is our experience, hope yours may be better.

The property itself is very nice and right on the river. The lobby, bistro and pool are clean, modern, and comfortable. The room we had was very clean and modern finishes. I did not like that our room faced a parking lot and the balcony is so small you literally just stand on it. The biggest annoyance was the air conditioning, there was no way to leave the fan on. It was either very warm or freezing. It left us all extremely dried out even in the Florida humidity.

Room Tip: Be sure to ask for pool or river views.

The riverfront in Bradenton is beautifull and this hotel is great,very well kept and the staff was great. It would have been even better if it had a better breakfast choices. It has a mini restaurant that offers Starbucks coffee but very small selection of food. But the hotel is in an awesome location and everything is very close by.

Room Tip: get a riverview, is a little bit more expensive but worth it

We where in from Texas for our nephew's funeral. We first booked our room at the super 8 down the road that was disgusting. I made a call to this hotel and was able to book right away and arrive 10 minutes of making it. What a beautiful hotel. Gorgeous lobby. Rooms were so clean. Linen fresh and cozy. We had a sofa bed for my son and he said it was so comfortable to sleep on. Starbucks in the lobby and a nice big pool with plenty of furniture to lounge around. Awesome river view from the patio. We needed extra blankets and room service didn't take 5 minutes to knock on our door. Must warn you the pool floor is very slippery and if not careful you will slip and fall. We did inform the front deck of the danger and they immediately closed to pool to correct the problem. I will definitely return its totally worth it.
