“Good place on the road”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 23, 2013

Kinda hard to find unless you know where it is. The hotel is on the service road behind other hotels. Nice and clean. Friendly front counter. Free good quality breakfast. We actually were accidentally locked out while on the pool patio. But, luckily there was an unlocked gate to exit. We'll stay again....

Room Tip: Ours was down the hall from the elevators. Once the kids quit running in the hall, all was quiet.

I've stayed at this property TWICE in the past two weeks. The staff--on every shift--could not have been more welcoming and accommodating!

I was surprised, but even the housekeeping staff was exceptionally accommodating--even to the point of as I was leaving my room, walking down the hall with my luggage to check-out--of the housekeepers said, "Come back to see us...and be careful on your return home!"

Then, as I was walking down the corridor on the first floor, heading to my car, another housekeeper waved and gave me a big smile, "When are you coming back to see us?"

I don't know, but that's just not my typical hotel stay. To me, it shouted EXCELLENT management and teamwork, with every person on staff understanding that the business thrives on how customers "feel" about their experience. FIVE STARS ***** for an exceptional management and staff!

The rooms were standard Marriot Fare with comfortable beds, mini-fridges, (and microwaves in one of the rooms I stayed in).

The location is close to USM, shopping, restaurants, churches and schools. It's excellent for the business traveler...and also families who are passing through on their way to New Orleans (less than two-hours away)...or those headed for Mississippi's Gulf Coast.

The indoor pool seemed quite active with families--and looked like fun, if I hadn't been so busy.

All in all, this is a very good, very clean, very safe and convenient hotel, run by a caring manager and staff who know the TRUE MEANING of Southern Hospitality!

Room Tip: I enjoyed my stays on the second and third floors. Quiet and lots of room to spread-out and work...

We stayed the night here while in town for a soccer tournament. The hotel met our needs. It was clean and had a fridge available in the room, which was nice to keep drinks in.

Hotel is centrally located and easy to access. Near a lot of good restaurants.

My only issue with the stay (which wasn't the hotels issue) is that while at the pool we ran across some very rude guests.

We chose to stay in this hotel rather than the hotel with the other wedding guests because of Marriott Rewards. My daughter was the "Guest of the Day" and was given a nice welcome bag. The staff, both day and night shift (when we came in after the wedding) were very nice and should be commended. On the down side, my son and daughter both reserved a suite but my daughter was the only one who got one. They did not have a suite for my son. The "suite" was much smaller than the one my brother had at the Hilton Garden Inn for the same price. In addition, when we went to make the sofa bed there were no sheets and I had to go to the front desk to get them. Also, on our floor when we got to our room there were 2 sacks of garbage at the end of the hall. When we came at 11 pm the garbage was still there and still there when we went to breakfast at 7:15 am the next morning. I also thought that Fairfield's were offering scrambled eggs and sausage---more of a hot breakfast but what we had was microwave fare; the bananas were overripe and there were no apples. The lady in the breakfast area did keep everything clean and stocked. This was just not what I expected at a Marriott hotel.

Room Tip: The hotel is buffered with trees so all rooms, with the exception of those close to the elevator or...

We just left the location and just wanted say thank you to the staff! We arrived about midnight after an 10 hour drive and the front desk clerk was bright and cheery. When we awoke the next morning every staff member greeted us and asked how our stay was. The ladies running the breakfast bar were on top of it, refilling items as necessary and even making waffles for those that wanted one. The place is showing its wear but the staff totally makes up for it. We'll definitely consider this spot for our next beach trip. THANK YOU!

We arrive late but were welcomed the moment we arrived. The desk clerk was so kind and after a long day of walking around New Orleans we appreciated it. The lobby is clean and coffee available even that late. The room was small but clean. We slept wonderful and the next morning we were refreshed and ready to continue. The breakfast bar was replenished often the lady working was friendly and doing a great job. Overall great stay!

This hotel has clean, comfortable rooms, a nice lobby area, friendly staff, a decent fitness room -- all at a pretty good value. The location is a little tricky -- it is located right off Hardy St. near I-59, but the driveway is a little difficult to get to with a lot of traffic -- not a big deal, just a little bit of a surprise. Overall, this hotel will not overwhelm you, but it is a good place to stay -- recommended.
