I regularly stay at the Courtyard Dayton North for business and it is an excellent hotel. The hotel is great and the staff goes out of their way to make you feel comforatble and welcome. There are also several retail outlets that you may find useful to set up a dorm room (Office Depot, Wal-Mart and Sam's are all on Miller Lane) and there are numerous restuarants to choose from as well.
I would highly recommend this Marriott location.
I have stayed at the north Courtyard, Fairfield, and Residence Inns. I would not recommend the Fairfield but really like the Residence Inn. It is far enough off the highway, and with a room at the back, you get no highway noise. The staff there were great! The Courtyard was in the process of being remodeled the last time I was there. It is probably fine as well.
