First, let me be clear: I don't mind exterior entrance properties. In fact, I prefer them because of the convenience and access to my vehicle. That being said, this hotel was drastically sub par as far as older, exterior properties go. It needs either an overall DEEP cleaning, or a complete bulldoze. Those who run this place should feel ashamed... More

We needed a hotel that was 'cat friendly'. This seemed to be a good idea. Unfortunately, although I always like Marriotts, this one was below par. It was more of a motel and the room had a musty odor. It was clean enough but just not a nice place to stay for the money and had to pay additional $35... More

We stayed here for just one night on our way back to VA. The hotel is old but fine. My kids enjoyed the pool for a while. It was very convenient to have Target and other stores at walking distance. I read other reviews about the bad smell, honestly I did not feel it at all.

I am rating based on apples to apples and oranges to oranges. I just stayed in this hotel on the way down to Florida and then on the way back from Florida. Both stays just for an overnight because we drove from New Jersey to Florida. I have read the reviews where people say that is smelled. No way. Sorry.... More

We checked in late. The janitor had to let us into our rooms and we still have no keys bc the machine that codes them is broken. The water pressure is terrible. The beds are old and broken down. The tub won't drain. The rooms are small and antiquated. It's just an old hotel in desperate need of a renovation.

The room smelled of humidity and mold. We asked to see another room and it had the same problem. By that time it was too late to leave. When we complained at front desk in morning, the desk clerk apologized and stated they would reduce bill by $40 and give me bonus points on Marriott rewards program. I received the... More

Driving down from atlantic city on a business trip with my family tagging along, I booked three rooms. The smell was overwhelming in all rooms. Since all rooms had the smell, I didn't see what complaining would have done. Shame on you Marriott.

Room smelled of mold. I has an asthma attack. Shades were broken, window treatments were falling down and broke,molding around windows were falling off. Rug was wet. Bathroom was smaller then a rv , had to close the door to sit on toilet. Bedding was not marriott. Thin mattresses, not marriott pillows. A total disgrace to any marriott

This is an older building in absolutely top-notch shape and with friendly staff. It certainly goes on our list for another stay, but we are just a couple. Our room would definitely not have been enjoyable if we had children! The room was small, and the bathroom was claustrophobic. The building probably dates to the 70's or 80's. On the... More

My very first impression of the hotel was not great. The staff at the front desk was not professional nor friendly. When I walked into my room, it went all down hill.
