we stayed here during a home game for the gators so of course the rates were double the norm, but that is to be expected, however; the beds were SO uncomfortable it was impossible to sleep! the pillows have to weigh about 10 pounds each and are a little softer than rocks. Don't waste your money on this place! they... More

We stayed at this Marriot location on Saturday Oct 4, 2014, as my family did scuba lessons at the beautiful Devils Den spring in near by Williston,Florida. The Florida Gators football team was out of town at Tennessee, so things were very quite and very pleasant. This Marriot residence was recently renovated and the rooms were very comfortable and extremely... More

The staff was very helpful and and offered great service. Always greeted us as we came and went from the hotel. Rooms were large, decorated nicely and... More

this was a 3 night work thing, the hotel was functional in all ways, staff where friendly and couldn't do enough for us. My only issue was the lack of options for breakfast, the 'bistro' was really nothing more than a bar, that sold coffee. all in all I would go there again just don't plan to eat there.

I was pleasantly surprised by the recently renovated room I was in. Everything was refreshed and the bed was very comfortable. The bistro was well run and breakfast was delivered to my table quickly even though they were quite busy. I will definitely be back!

They knew from our advance reservation that we had five people to stay in the King Suite, which happened to be the most expensive of their accommodations with no AARP Discount allowed, and there were only two uncovered glasses with the dirty ice bucket. The cloth shower mat (rug) was FILTHY with a lot of long hair on it. We... More

I don't stay at Marriott's too often, but this one had a very friendly and engaging staff and a very good layout for getting work done in the lobby restaurant area. The morning offerings from the onsite Starbucks was definitely above average including hot meals. The rooms were more than adequate and our understanding was that they were beginning a... More
