This Marriott Hotel is located in Old Town near good restaurants and SeaWorld. The Breakfasts are good and the rooms are clean. The pool is shallow but good enough for laps and it feels really good after walking all day. They do need to put in room safes, and monitor more closely their towel allocations at the pool. We saw...

Comfortable, clean and great staff. Very close to Old Town. Beds very comfy and good air conditioning. Would recommend highly although a bar would be great. Breakfast included was pretty good too. Parking easily on the street.

This hotel is very nice. We had a room with a balcony that over looked the courtyard. Our room was very comfortable. The staff was friendly. Breakfast was good, waffles, scrambled eggs, sausage, hot and cold cereal, muffins, fruit, yogurt, coffee, juice and milk. This hotel is a very short, 3-5 minute, walk to Old Town. It is also very...

We arrived at this hotel at 2 PM and were told no rooms were available. This was not a problem since we were meeting a friend in Old Town. When we arrived back at the hotel at 3:45 PM we were told our room was not available and that check in was not until 4 PM. We finally were assigned... More

The hotel was very centrally located to the trolley buses station and old town. It is walking distance to the Old Town where the restaurants are open till late in the night so no problem getting a meal. The hotel itself is not 'crash hot' but ok. The breakfast was adequate with boiled eggs, waffles, porridge, bagals, biscuits and sausages.

Good location, not as good as Hacienda, but good and rooms are much more updated. Stay on the far end unit closest to downtown and you can park on the street, then walk into the gate to get to your room. If not, you can spend a fair amount of time walking to and from your car. Rooms were recently... More

It's a nice Inn. The building is a bit old but renovated. It has a nice breakfast area however there is nothing special about the breakfast. Nice room. Service is ok. We didn't have shampoo in our room once we arrived but they nicely provided some for us. You have to pay $17 per night for parking. The parking spots... More

Easy to arrive. Walking distance from Old Town. Nice hotel, nice room. Clean and confortable. Breakfast very simple, and crowded around 8 and 8:30 am. You can park on the streets nearby, although the Hotel has parking lot (US$ 17).

The staff is very friendly, the room was clean. I'm a frequent traveler, for a price point of $175.00 a night - I was expecting more. I'm good with old facilities, however, it was beyond its value. The rooms have updates but the hotel looks tired... It's obvious my view is different from others as the hotel appears to be... More
