The poor reviews for this hotel are right on target. Everything that could go wrong did. However, the staff was helpful and very pleasant especially Noreen. Noreen cleaned bathrooms, moved chairs, cleaned the outside pool, handled the breakfast bar and handled a multitude of other problems. Give her a SALARY INCREASE IMMEDIATELY!

Definitely is an outdated property. The web site stated it had undergone a total renovation in 2014; the renovation is still underway and only applies to rooms on the first floor. We did check in on the first floor and you can tell that they are TRYING to renovate, but certainly not all the way there yet. We travel often... More

Made the mistake of driving around the backside of the building.... painted window tint on windows, peeling...outside doors looked like they were kicked in at one point. Black mold in showers, three ice machines, only one was not broken....Dont do it!

If they allowed, I would give this place 3.5 stars. I think it should be rated somewhere between average and very good, since I experience no issues I will give it the benefit of the doubt. I stayed here back in April, but I am just now getting around to writing this review. The staff members I had dealings with... More

I stayed here with my wife, for two nights while visiting all the wonderful sights in the area. It looks very grand from the outside, and inside it looks it looks very good too, but on closer inspection, certain things are a little sad. It was once quite stunning, but now it seems neglected, or under-used. The room we had... More

This seems to be a conference center built in the 1980s that's seen better days. It's in need of a major renovation. Guest amenities such as soap, linens and the breakfast bar were minimalist. In its favor, it was quiet and back from the highway. It's centrally located.

To set expectations - this is a last resort hotel. Rooms have the smell of smoke and cheap perfume. Beds had hair in them, the locks are not functioning properly (safety issues), and furniture has that gross sticky surface thing. If you are in a bind - it's not as bad as a "no tell motel" - but I wouldn't... More

It's hard for me to understand how so many people are rating this hotel with one star. This is a fine property exactly what you should get for what you're paying. I don't live in a multi million dollar neighborhood, and I don't expect the hotels I select to be luxury properties. The Marriott in Florence AL is where you... More
