I will try and make this short since most people who are looking for a review need only two things, Price and Cleanliness.
Traveled from Florida to visit West Point. Looked on line for a "Marriott" property since they are usually a good value. I looked at trip advisor for this property and noticed the last review was 2009. So I used google and hotels.com to get a more recent review. Nothing stood out so we made the reservation.
Arrived at 8 pm and had a reservation to hold the room. Called in advance to make sure they had me on file, which they did. When I pulled into the parking lot I was surprised that the hotel actually looked like a small apartment complex. This was great because traveling with kids you need as much room as possible.
As I parked and exited the car I got a good look at the property. I started to get that feeling......this wasn't going to be good. I went to the lobby and met with the front desk. She was eating her dinner as she checked me in. Everyone's gotta eat but at the front desk?? Come on! She presented me with a list of rules which stated No Smoking, No Pets, etc...
I signed with pleasure since that is exactly what I was looking for in a hotel. We got the room key and drove to the other side of the parking lot. As I walked up to the building I started getting that feeling again. The side walks were all broken and cracked, the shrubs were over grown and all the wood chip was missing from the flower beds.
The outside of the building was disgusting. It hadn't been painted in years. I got to the ground floor room which was right next to the pool. There were several men dressed in what appeared to be gang colors hanging around the pool and they were all smoking.
I entered the room and it looked like it was 1970 all over again. The room was partly redone but it still had old carpet and old appliances. The bedding was fresh and the counters were new. That's about it! Then the smell hit me.....MOLD! Need I say more?
I went back to the front desk and asked to be moved to another room. By this time she was finished with her meal and was happy to help. I went to the second room and found more of the same. This time I got slammed with the odor of cigarette smoke that was lingering in the room.
At this point I was done with the place. I went to the front desk and checked out! Hampton Inn next door is much better.
Good luck, pass up this property as fast as you can!!
