Courtyard Bradenton Sarasota/Riverfront
Ranked #5 of 21 Hotels in Bradenton
Reviewed 3 November 2013 via mobile

We chose to stay here due to its proximity to so many things to see and do in this area--loved the location of this property! It is right on the river and it exudes class all the way. The pool is beautiful as is the grounds to this property. Upon passing through the gated pool area it opens to a makeshift beach area and the "river walk" that opens up for a beautiful walk going in either direction. The property is immaculately clean, the staff super friendly and due to it not being slower were pleasantly surprised to a suite upgrade. Luv'd this hotel!

I love the location right on the river walk. Get a room overlooking the water. The balconies are very narrow with no room for a chair. The rooms and lobby have been updated and bring new life to an old hotels the staff is very friendly.

Our grandson from Southern California was visiting us for a week. He has been in the Pacific and Atlantic Ocean, but not in the Gulf of Mexico. We live near Disney and it is only an hour or so to the Gulf. So off we went...
The Marriott Courtyard Bradenton is a great place. We checked in with a very helpful staff. After getting settled in our room, we went down and swam in the pool and enjoyed the hot tub. Both were very clean and refreshing.
After dinner, we stopped at the bar and restaurant to pick up a soft drink and snack. The staff again was pleasant and helpful.
Our check out experience was the same as checking in. The staff was enjoyable and very friendly.
Then it was off to the beach for a wonderful day..

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.
