Overall decent with nice warm weather indoor outdoor pool and indoor hot tub. Rooms are small and queen bed is really full not queen. Sheets and blankets are a step away from napkins. Asked for extra blankets and they said they were out but the hotel was maybe half full. She brought us an extra comforter which is nothing more... More

Thank you for taking the time to let us know about your recent stay. We did have many families in over your visit who needed several extra blankets and linens. All of these extra requests put is in the situation of running out towards the end of the day and I do apologize for that. Our queen rooms are the... More

The hotel had a very nice great room that you walk into to check in. Very nice pool area that is indoors / outdoors with a hot tub. The rooms has a lot of extra room, in fact my room that had two queen beds probably could have easily has queen king beds. We did not use the WIFI, so... More

First, the basics. I booked this room through Priceline, so I received a very good price ($81) for what they considered a three star property. Was in town for a basketball tournament; stayed Friday at Holiday Inn Express (good) and Courtyard Marriott on Saturday night. Both were in the same price range and star rating. That's where the similarities end.... More

I've stayed in enough Marriott properties to know what level of quality to expect. I was in town to attend a funeral, and chose this property because of its proximity to the church...and I was not disappointed. Plus, there are plenty of stores and restaurants nearby....and right off the highway! The room was clean; the front desk personnel was very... More

I had already been planning to write a great review for this hotel based on the great customer service and cleanliness of the hotel during my stay. However, when I walked out to my car this morning, prepared to scrape off 6 inches of snow and ice, and found not only it but every car in the lot scraped and... More

Stayed here for business and was pleased to see it had all the business amenities - outlets in the lamps, reliable Wi-Fi, microwave. I wish they also had mini-fridges. The bathroom was a bit dated... maybe most of the building is dated... but the staff was so friendly and helpful they more than made up for it.

We have stayed at this hotel in the past and were happy to return. As usual, staff was friendly and helpful. Upon check in, unfortunately, the hot tub had just stopped working and needed service. Very disappointing! However, the manager provided us with a complimentary breakfast for our inconvenience. We made the most of the stay and enjoyed the down... More

Sometimes staff is professional. Sometimes overly friendly. Rarely do they hit the balance. This place did. Elizabeth at check-in/out and Nicole in the morning put a gr8 face on this place. I would come here again just for those two. The room was good as well.

Location is quiet but convenient to lots of nearby shops and restaurants. The service is friendly, e.g. when checking in, the woman at the front desk offered to help me with my bag since my room was on the second floor and the hotel doesn't have an elevator. The hotel looks dated, but not so much that it's a deterrent... More

Stayed here for a football tourney. Rooms were very nice and clean. Everything was good until we went for breakfast and they were out of a lot of things. I had to take my family somewhere else to eat for breakfast.
