“Great Beachfront”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 23, 2013

The best aspect of this hotel is it's location; right on the beach and it is a fabulous beach that appears to stretch for miles and is great for walking in the early morning. The rooms are clean and comfortable. The breakfast menu gives a wide choice and the staff in the restaurant are superb. The lounge can fill up on weekend nights and be somewhat noisy but it is nice that you can get a meal in the lounge if you arrive late to check into the hotel.

Just behind the sandy area of the beach are some comfortable hammocks for lounging and there are chairs arranged to allow you a view of the sea.

Although this is a beachfront hotel do not automatically expect to get a view of the ocean as some of the rooms are on the side of the hotel property and do not really have a view of the sea. If you want an ocean view you should specifically ask for it.

My husband I stayed at the Hilton Head Marriott Resort & Spa for 2 nights and had a wonderful time. The staff is absolutely wonderful and so accommodating to their guests and the breakfast was awesome! We almost felt like royalty! We stayed in an Ocean Front King Room which was clean, comfortable. The view was perfect! The room could use a little updating, however that didn't matter to us, we still loved our room!

Room Tip: Spend the extra money and request an Ocean Front Room on one of the higher floors.

As many of the previous reviews have mentioned, this beachfront hotel has a great location, however the rooms are in need of a serious update as they look tired and worn. Our room was clean, it's just in desperate need of an update.

My boyfriend and I recently stayed here for two nights -- we received a pretty good rate and at the time we booked the room they were offering a $100 credit to Spa Soliel. We booked a couples massage and both the spa and the massage were wonderful. The $100 credit didn't get us very far, but that is to be expected at a "resort".

We arrived around noon, and knowing that check in wasn't until 4pm I decided to give it a shot anyway. I was told as long as our room was ready we could check in -- it was, so we lucked out. The employee who checked us in was very nice. Pretty much everyone who worked there was friendly and always asking if they could help.

We didn't eat at the hotel, from what I saw it seemed pretty expensive. We did stop into the General Store right down the road from the hotel (and still within the Palmetto Dunes resort area) for a much cheaper (and pretty decent) breakfast. They had some hot breakfast options and also served as a decent convenience store for most if your basic needs.

The weather wasn't so great while we were there, but it was still nice enough to sit out by the pool and enjoy my personal favorite, the hammocks. All in all, not a bad place and I'd stay here again if I could get a good price, but they really need to update this place.

We stayed here for 2 nights of spring break 2013. The Beach and Pool Deck are a very nice atmosphere for sunbathing and beach exploring. They rent bikes, beach comber bikes, and other beach toys, which is nice. Be warned, the pool and even hot tubs will be cold unless you are expecting 80+ degree days. Even the indoor pool is cold at this hotel.
The service at the pool deck restaurants is marginal. The staff warned us in advance that lunch wait can be 30 minutes, but it was more like an hour before our food arrived.
The rooms are dated, but nice, and what you might expect from an older Marriott facility. The restaurant is average but staffed with friendly waitresses. Shop around for a good rate and this hotel will be worth it for location (beach) and value. If you are expecting luxury, go elsewhere.

Room Tip: Don't pay more for an ocean view room.

I was a little bit disappointed with this hotel. The price for a night is quite high, so I was expecting a little luxury and unfortunately didn't get it. When I walked into my room I was disappointed to look out the door and see a roof! I know I didn't pay for an ocean view room, but for $225/night I was hoping for at least a parking lot view! Now I am not the kind of person who needs everything new, I like a little bit of history and character, but this hotel is in desperate need of repair. I had a shower in my room and the joint at the doors was moldy and cracking and the drain was so clogged that after being in it for 30 seconds I was standing in water, which grosses me out a bit. The light beside the bed was broken, so I had to unplug it to turn it off and the security latch at the door was broken as well so that I had to actually screw it in with my fingernail so that it wouldn't dangle which would cause me to not be able to open the door. Also, apparently they changed cable providers so there were no in room movies, I actually had to call at your service to figure this out as it denotes this as a feature both on their website and the in room guide. I was told that this is no longer offered as they were trying to be more family friendly (I wasn't trying to watch an adult film!, but she acted like I was). As this is an old hotel, you can imagine the soundproofing isn't very good, because a lot of people were on spring break, there were a lot of kids, so screaming, running and banging around was the norm for my trip as was listening to the next rooms conversations like we were in the same room. This is just a note as I was on vacation, so it didn't bother me too much. Now the good! The staff at this hotel is amazing, really, I didn't have any interactions that weren't pleasant or helpful, they made my stay enjoyable, management should take note because if it weren't for their staff I wouldn't consider staying here again, but because of them I just might. Also, the location is incredible, beautiful beach that is incredible with dolphins playing out front, along with Spanish moss lined streets.
I would like to note that I did not ask to change rooms, I simply can't stand the hassle of that, so I could have changed rooms and things may have been better in another room!
If you don't plan on staying in your room a lot and love the beach and a beautiful pool, then you should stay here, but if you like luxury and updates, I don't think this hotel will do it for you.

Room Tip: Stay oceanfront for any room value.

I am not sure about the folks giving this place 1 and 2 stars. Oh yes, you probably spied a petulant roach. But give me a break, roaches have been around since the dinosaurs. It will take more than a 4 star establishment to take them down!!

Seriously, great place on the beach. Very friendly and helpful staff. Nice rooms, although a bit worn, nothing to be mad or discomforted about. There were lot of activities for kids, great location, great pools. We plan on going back there again.

Room Tip: Go as high as possible!

My girlfriend and I decided to visit this hotel for a weekend trip.( BIG MISTAKE) We were looking forward to some alone time and being at a (so called) resort and spa. While there, we were constantly harassed by the managers, who I'm assuming thought we were below them because of our ages (23 and 22). We had awful service at the hotel restaurant where we waited for over 40 minutes for food when there were only 3 other tables full. As a young adult it is very disappointing to be treated like a child when just like all of the other guests I have payed for my room and for the so called great service that we did not receive. We will never be going back to this hotel because of the staff and the horrible service we received. I hope that no one will have to go through this type of treatment. And to the night staff, especially the manager, you should be fired. It would benefit you and your hotel if you would treat everyone with respect that they deserve as a person let alone as a guest.
