This hotel is located in walking distance from shopping, movie theater, and restaurants. It's about 10 min from the beach and 5 min away from the outlet mall. Very clean and friendly staff. I only wished we had a microwave in our room and free breakfast. Overall we enjoyed our stay and will visit again.

The hotel was clean. The location is the best part of this place. It's located within walking distance from shopping, food, and the movies. It was close enough to the beach to get there in about 10 minutes but far enough to be away from the tourist areas. I personally prefer not to stay in the tourist areas.

Me and my wife stayed here for Mothers Day and we both was very pleased. The room was nice and neat. The three days that we stayed they cleaned our room and put fresh towels in everyday. We stayed in a room that had a balcony and that was so cool. Big lobby, nice pool, awesome food and drink bar.... More

We had our first problem ten minutes after arriving. We checked into our room only to see that one of the beds had clearly been laid on. The pillows were crumpled and the bedspread was obviously moved. Immediately, the front desk called and said they needed to move us to another room because the tv did not work in our... More

The staff was very friendly and my husband was able to checkin early due to a rained out fishing trip. The room was clean, plenty of parking, and a good central location. The only complaint I have is that our satellite didn't work (seems common on the reviews).

We had a great stay here. The location is perfect, and the staff were great. Rooms were standard Mariott rooms, very clean, nicely updated, good decor. Breakfast was good, clean, everything we expected. Staff were very friendly and really helpful! Location is close to shopping and the beach.

The hotel's general manager, Lynn, went out of her way to make sure we had a pleasant stay, great manager! The Bistro employees, Te-Te & Jason, we're always very friendly and smiling. Approx. 10 mins. from beach and the Hangout, also right around the corner from LuLu's, the Track & Waterville. We would definitely stay at this hotel again.

We always stay with Marriott. This will NOT be one we'll stay with again. Check in experience, not friendly at all. Got to room, T.V. didn't work, they came to fix it saying we should have noticed the remote button had fallen off the t.v. and was in the back. Don't think that is my job to fix their t.v.... More
