We vacationed with our two oldest granddaughters ages 11 and 12 and stayed in a King Suite. It was perfect for us, the girls had the living room area with a pull out sofa and their own TV while we had a bedroom with king bed and TV for us. The bathroom was large with good quality product and everything... More

Hotel 10 on a 15 hotel trip. Front desk staff were excellent. Room was clean and VERY comfortable. The room had very few electrical outlets and the ones in the room were not easy to access -- this is important for most hotel guests today because we need to be able to use our smartphones, tablets and laptops while also...

As a Marriott rewards participant I opted to stay here during a recent business trip. Not a great idea. I forgot this is a vacation destination. I had no idea there was a ware park in the hotel. This was the smallest hotel room I have ever stayed in. Seriously. It felt like a prison cell. Ok on cleanliness. Bed... More

I apologize that your stay was not as you expected. Our smallest room is 300 square feet and ranges up to almost a 1000 square feet and again I apologize... More

We stayed 2 nights here so that we could visit Badlands, Mount Rushmore etc. This is a fairly average Fairfield Inn, meaning that it is a very good place to stay. Other reviewers have noted that it is attached to a large water park, with another hotel also attached. This tends to produce a noisy and very casual atmosphere. For... More

Although there are signs posted in the halls for children not to run and make noise, it was clear that the children either couldn't read or don't obey the signs. Even on a high floor there seems to be almost constant pounding of small feet in the hall--likely from the adjoining property with a full-on water slide. Staff are excellent,... More

Our room had a bad smell. When we turned on the heat the heater had a burnt smell and we had to open the windows to air out the room. Sheets were very wrinkled and when I tried to straighten the sheets, the mattress pad which was old and worn continued to buckle. When trying to remake the bed, the... More

Stayed at this location for 3 days at the end of July. It is the last stop across 3 states and 4 hotels. My two college age kids and I thought the room was the most clean, comfortable and had the best breakfast included of the 4 places we stayed. Its in a good location if you have multiple destinations... More

Stayed here with 4 small kids passing through on our road trip. Great place to let the kids unwind in the water park although it's an additional cost it's worth it. Continental breakfast was included & good. Room was big enough to accommodate all 6 of us comfortably.

This is NOT a typical Marriott; staff improperly trained, facility neglected and no one appears to care. All this is obvious when the owner of the property boast several other businesses they also own. This is the only Marriott in the world that does not have a pool......ooops, sorry, it is an attached waterpark you must pay $15 per day... More
