I used 10,000 reward points to stay at this hotel which is definitely not the Marriott standard. While upgrades have been made and continue to be made, nothing will eliminate the musty, smelly, damp, environment. The mustiness was absolutely overwhelming and I don't know that it can ever be improved. The eating area had an alarming amount of fruit flies not only all over the walls but to the point where you had to keep one hand free to keep them off your food and face. I have never, at any Marriott, seen cleaning carts left in the hallway, however, two carts with cleaning supplies, etc. were on our floor in the hallway when we checked in around 6:00 p.m., were removed for a short time and then were back in the hallway first thing in the morning. When I went to the front desk to ask for directions shortly after check-in, the staff member behind the desk had her mouth full of a cookie and I had to wait until she was finished before she could answer. The latter two statements obviously didn't affect my stay, however, they are just other observations regarding the standard. I cannot express enough my disappointment that this hotel is rated at 10,000 points. I sincerely wish I had used 5,000 more points to stay at one of the other nearby Marriott products. If you are not using points or are not a rewards member and paying cash, if you can afford it, there are three other Marrriott properties just across the highway - a Springhill Suites, a Courtyard and a Residence Inn. I wish I had stayed at one of those. I would not think of staying at any other brand of hotel as I firmly believe that Marriott is the best chain available, however, this property is simply not 'Marriott'.
