As far as a property being up to Marriott standards, not really. But still Very Very Nice ! Clean with lots of value if you are going to use the water park with the family. Complementary breakfast on the main floor off the lobby area. Very good, waffles, bacon, eggs,cereal, bagels, pastries, juices, milk, coffee. Hotel staff is extremely friendly... More

My family has stayed here about 5 times in the last year. Every time we stay here we are treated great. The family suites are clean fresh and huge. The waterpark is fantastic and the life guards are very attentive and friendly. The lady who was the waitress at the restaurant was very friendly and did a great job. Andrew... More

I have stayed many property's and posting on all is timely. At first glance at their header on TripAdviser one becomes confused on location . Let me set it straight . St. Joseph Michigan is about 30+ miles away from this property . If you know the roads and there are several you may enjoy a more scenic trip to... More

Attended a wedding in Watervliet, this was was chosen hotel stay for guest. Pretty decent, clean. Nice customer service ,ok breakfast. Walls were a little thin , so you could hear through them. Bed is comfortable , nice fluffy pillows. They have a water park in the hotel which we did not attend so I can't say anything about that.... More

The lobby surprised in a good way, large and stylish. The room surprised even more! I loved it... Beautiful decor, pleasant and modern design. We stayed on a third floor, king size bed. Minor negatives: no wifi at this particular time, they were going trough a repair, and the inner shower curtain has so seen its day! I was surprised... More

My husband and I were given tickets to a Notre Dame football game at the last minute, and we could not find a hotel in the South Bend area or even close. I was given the option by Marriott to stay at this hotel. What a great find! First of all, it is about a 45-50 minute drive from South... More

Nice hotel and staff very friendly. Short drive to the beach , shops eating. I would have been very unhappy if I was coming here for the "waterpark". It is expensive and very tiny. We did have a very rude clerk when booking the rooms but onsite everyone was friendly.

Stayed here because the courtyard in St Joseph was booked for the night. Hotel was clean and staff were friendly and attentive when I called to ask them to have the room next door quiet down after 11pm. Price was way higher than I would normally pay for a Fairfield, by quite a bit. This is the first Marriott property... More

Our recent stay at this hotel ended on an extremely bad note as we were charged a much higher rate than quoted by the staff from this hotel for the room. This happened to several other people who were at this same hotel for the same event. Management stated it was an error when the lower price was quoted -... More
