I'm always surprised with all the extras that this hotel provides. I checked in just at the outset of social hour and socialized with some of the other travelers, many of whom had also traveled from northeastern US. The room layout of the rooms resemble a studio, with everything in one room. I've seem much better layouts for rooms, Hayatt... More

I stayed here for two days in March 2015. This is a typical Residence Inn. Its in need of an update, as most of the carpets are worn, and the decor is older. However the room was clean, and as usual breakfast was decent. There was a bit of a musty smell in the hallway of my building, but maybe... More

I posted about our hotel issue with another property and this property was where Hotwire's customer service booked us. As soon as we walked in we had a good feeling (probably due to our previous bad experience) and we were not disappointed. Checkin was fast and friendly. At first it seemed they only had one room for us but the... More

I've stayed here many times in the past and have always had a great experience. Even though this is not a luxury hotel, it is one of the best run properties that I have ever stayed at. I travel 90% of the year staying at about 40 or so properties each year and every time I stay here I am... More

The hotel is in a good location, close to airport, highway and shopping. Within 5 minutes there are a number of choices if you need to eat out. The free breakfast was excellent, the choices were plentiful and the eating area was clear. The staff was friendly and very helpful. Overall its an excellent hotel if you have business in... More

The Positive - Good location, employees are friendly and courteous, breakfast was good, the room was comfortable. The Areas Needing Improvement - Rooms need updating, house keeping did not clean bathrooms or vacuum and would clean (or try to) with people in the room, and the room keys don't work consistently.

The people were friendly and the hotel was located close to restaurants and venues, however the hotel was looking run down. It may be better in the future as they were in the process of upgrading the rooms when we were leaving (over the next few months). The hot breakfast was pretty good.

We were greeted by such a wonderful, friendly and helpful staff!! Wish there was more room around the pool for more chairs. The people that stay there for the season have them all reserved. That is all right, don't blame blame!

Clean room, comfortable bed, real clean bath. (Don't expect thick, lush towels, just nice clean new ones.) Large living area and full kitchen (stayed at a few newer ones and never saw setup like this one: 2 burner flattop stove, dishwasher and full fridge). Within walking distance of mall. Hot breakfast with a variety. Staff was friendly and helpful. Could... More

Typically old stodgy Marriott. Starwood properties are head & shoulders better. This property has good beds but their queen, NOT KING. Their furniture, carpeting & public areas feel as old as they probably are, 30 years +/-. I only stayed here because it was Spring Break in South Florida & only hotel around $100. Pretty much get what you pay... More
