We were headed to Sequoia National Park from San Diego and we decided to book a room at the Marriott before our trip. After hours of driving we made it to Visalia, but the town was very small and the food options were very limited, and the men driving down main street were making my friend and I very uncomfortable as they stopped and stared. I was terrified about what kind of place I might have booked for us in the town... but the Marriott was like an incredible oasis.
The staff here were helpful, the lobby was beautiful, and our room with two doubles was HUGE compared to other places we have stayed. Everything about our stay here was perfect. The bedding was plush and soft and incredibly comfortable. The bathroom was updated and had large counters as well as a vanity area outside of the bathroom (perfect for two women needing to get ready in the morning). The shower was incredible. The entire room was absolutely spotless. I couldn't have been happier with our stay.
I recommend doing roomservice for breakfast, as it would have been a bit cheaper than going down to the restaurant in the morning - so make sure you fill out your breakfast request and hang it on your door the night before.
If you're coming through Visalia, I absolutely recommend the Marriott. It was exactly what we needed and it exceeded our expectations.
