Needed a one night stop halfway between Hilton Head and home so thought we'd try Griffin Gate - we wish we had stayed there a few days instead of just one night. What a beautiful property! It's a big Marriott built around maybe 1980 I would guess but the lobby and rooms are all updated - very current, fresh and... More

Generally we love Marriott hotels and this one was nice with a pleasant staff. However, I would rather take a beating than "sleep" on their bed again. My husband and I barely slept as the memory foam mattress or mattress top was hard and uncomfortable and left us feeling as if we had wrestled with someone instead of sleeping. Please... More

We want all of our guests to have a great, comfortable nights sleep and I am very sorry you and your husband did not experience this.

Bed was wonderful! But bathrooms extremely small and had a not so clean smell. Hand towels need bleaching. Had to cut air way down to keep cool. Otherwise front desk friendly and room had a fridge in it. Nice room overall. Expected a little bit more for a Marriott!

Newer hotels in the area get higher reviews, but this hotel offers conference amenities the others do not. The hotel has been updated and rooms are spacious and attractively decorated. Tempur-pedic beds are terrific -being a vendor made me happy to see all the rooms have them now. On my last visit, there were more choices for snacks/breakfast. That was... More

Just stayed here two weeks ago. I did not sleep well. The beds are extremely hot. They have new Tempur- pedics beds. I actually have a latex mattress at my home. I thought because of this, sleeping would be no problem. I was extremely wrong. Pillow top mattresses are so much more comfortable. I feel Marriott is making a big... More

We just spent the weekend at this resort. The service was excellent, the room spotless and the bed the most comfortable of any hotel. Close to the Kentucky Horse park. This was our first visit and we will be back.

My expectations weren't that high so I was pleasantly surprised at the value for the level of rooms and service. Hotel bar was nice and restaurant very good. You simply must try the Kentucky butter cake.

I have visited this property before. They have improved but there still can be some improvement on the overall maintenance and housekeeping. Upon arrival they had changed the Lobby and Gift Shop. Honestly I liked the other gift shop better. More variety of snacks and beverages as well as actual gifts prior. Now it is more sparse and you are... More
