Our family stayed here for only one night, but we're glad we got a sample of the place because we will stay here on a future trip. The rooms (386/388) were extremely clean, spacious, with comfortable beds. We each had a separate sitting area that opened on to a good sized balcony overlooking the golf course and pool. There is...

When we checked in at about 6 p.m. and they didn’t have the type of room we reserved. (2 queens) I felt so bad for the girl ( I think her name was Della) because she got so nervous to tell us she was breaking out in hives. We were kind to her as it’s not her fault. I’ve read... More

Looking forward to this vacation and we get put in a room looking at a wall. Evidently out Marriott status is not high enough and we paid a blocked rate, so this is what we get. When making reservations, we did not get the bed situation we desired nor the correct duration of our trip. This place is no better... More

My wife and I recently spent a week at this property with mixed feelings. Overall, the property is nice, rooms are clean and it is convenient to the 101. Overall the employees are friendly, especially the morning hostess at the restaurant, but there were many inconsistencies that would not make me want to return. Specifically, 1. I have platinum premier... More

Upon checking in, we had a problem with a requested room type that telephoned to the hotel a couple months ago. The Front Desk Manager (Sanika) eloquently handled the problem and made the situation correct. During our stay, my daughter had a horrific migraine headache that was borderline with a potential trip to the emergency room. The Front Desk Manager... More

Stayed recently for work, an the hotel was over booked. When I arrived, the staff was struggling to accommodate late arriving guests, in clouding myself. It was clear they were stressed, but they handled everything well. Once in the room, I was pleased with the size and location. The decor is dated- not an issue. Biggest problem was the constant...

Have stayed here 3 or 4 times and is always really nice. Relaxing pool area. Pretty scenery. Great breakfast buffet. Always have beautiful berries on that buffet and so delicious as well as a nice selection of other hot and cold breakfast foods. As a travel agent I would definitely recommend this place and the Marriott brand. Have never had... More

We were in the one bedroom suite are loved it . The room was nice and big, the hotel was beautiful. The staff was great and very welcoming. I think my family was spoiled by staying at Desert Ridge. The pool at McDowell was nice, but nothing like Desert Ridge, this is a giant rectangle. I was bummed that there... More

I have traveled to this hotel for the past two years for business. It is conveniently located to my client and also not too far away from the popular shopping and restaurant areas if you have a car. The rooms are very nice and spacious as they are small suites. It was more than enough room for me traveling alone... More
