“Pitty for the Desk Clerk”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 7, 2012

At 10:30 on a Friday night the only staff member at the hotel was one desk clerk. She tried very hard to satisfy all of the guest's needs, but was overloaded. It took 20 minutes to check in, as she had to handle other guest issues at the same time. She did the best she could, but the lack of any managment support on a busy Friday night was unforgivable for a quality hotel. God forbid if there had been a safety or security issue arise. Ownership of this hotel needs to look at management skills and staffing priorities.

Thank you so much for bringing this situation to our attention. We train and prepare for busy times at the front desk but only when they occur, do we know how successful we will be. In this case, we missed our mark. Additional "real time" training for new associates has been instituted and guest supplies at the front desk have been rearranged to allow front desk staff better, quicker access during the busy times. Speed and accuracy is a primary concern during the checkin-in process as we want to ensure that your stay with us gets off to a wonderful start. We are confident that during your next visit, you will be appreciative of the results that your comments have helped us achieve.

I've always found this hotel friendly, clean, quiet, and tastefully decorated. I appreciate the pool and the modest work out area, the flat screen TVs and the free internet . However what moved me to write this review was the high level of service in my last visit. Jessica at the front desk went out of her way to take care of us in anticipating our arrival needs and in resolving a problem we were having getting our boarding passes. Moreover, Chris, the general manager has always been warm and gracious.

We had reservations at a nearby property that smelled of smoke and mold. Saw the Courtyard by Marriott Brunswick in the distance and took a chance that they would have a double queen room. Yay, they did and it's such a nice property. Jessica was awesome checking us in and gave us suggestions for dinner at Logan's Roadhouse.

We're so glad that we could add enjoyment to your Florida trip! Jessica received a great big pat on the back for taking such good care of you during your stay! She is an asset and we're so glad you gave her the recognition she deserves. We're also glad you enjoyed Logan's Roadhouse...They are new to the area and are a great addition to the neighborhood. Looking forward to seeing you on your next trip!

Newly renovated lobby is terrific. All staff are neatly dressed and seem happy and are willing to help. Rooms well decorated and clean. Bathroom updated and clean. Stayed three nights and will stay there next time.

Nice hotel. Modern lobby and cafe. Free paper. Not a free breakfast. Wish they would spend more money feeding guests breakfast and less on the lobby, which no one seemed to use. Rooms were fine. Flat screen tv. Pool is heated, which isn't necessary when it feels like a hot tob. Gym A/C didn't work, but nice treadmills with tv's. Hard to find someone at the front desk, but they were friendly.

Thanks for your kind comments about the new hotel and the new fitness equipment! A/C is up and running after a short down-time; so sorry it happened during your stay. Passed the kind comments on to the staff and will ensure they're "front and center" at all times. Looking forward to your next visit!

Overall the Hotel rooms are nicely furnished and comfortable. The two room suites are located right next to I-95 and the exit ramp making the rooms very noisy due to the highway traffic. If you stay in these particular rooms make sure you have a high tolerance level for highway traffic noises. We questioned that when we first arrived in the room but thought the room air conditioner would drowned out the noise, we found out our tolerance level for this just wasn't what we thought and moved elsewhere for the next night in Brunswick, Ga.

Room Tip: Two room Suite rooms are next to the highway and have a lot of highway noise due to large trucks.
