“Scary when we drove up and we were hesitant until getting into the room.....”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 26, 2013

Not sure what Marriott corporation was going for here. When we drove up we felt like we were entering a 1970's apartment complex. 2 separate buildings with parking in between. Kudos to Marriott for being non-smoking but the downside is that people loiter around the parking lot smoking and you have to wade through that. If it didn't have the Marriott name on it though, I wouldn't have even checked in from the looks of the place in the dark. The hallways are like a nightmare - I really do think this used to be student housing/apartments from the 70's and Marriott took over the building, because this is like no Marriott designed place I've ever seen or even an old style Residence Inn. But alas, once we survived the retro dark halls and stairwells (with a bag of garbage left at the top of the stairs, 3rd floor) we got into our room and it was fine. If you are used to life in a big city or Marriott properties in Dallas, this will confuse you. But if you can get over the 70's design and old feel, you will be fine here. Clean, no bugs, soft but comfortable beds. I love my Marriott and where else can you get a 2 bedroom unit with 2 queen beds, with a kitchen, you just need to be able to get over the vibe the place gives off. I just felt like I was in married student housing! However, 5 stars to the fact there is no running up and down the hallways and playing elevator tag in this configuration - luckily the baseball/soccer teams with wild kids don't choose a place like this!

I liked the room and everything seemed to be updated but the bed. I like a soft bed but this one was to the point where you sunk into a hole in the middle. If not for the be I would have given it 4 stars.

Very nice room but got very little sleep! Apparently no insulation in the ceiling/floor because footsteps from the people above us kept us awake until almost midnight and then woke us up the next morning. And while I admit the room was nice, it was NOT worth the $355 a night they charge during special events. Will never stay here again.

Room Tip: If you have to stay here as a last resort ask for a room on the top floor!!

Stayed At the newly renovated TownPlace Suites in College Station this week. Everything in the rooms have been replaced and updated. Stainless appliances as well as a very comfortable bed. Mangers reception Mon and Wed from 5 to 730 with free food, beer and wine. Great staff and great location. Might be the best value for the money in town.

Room Tip: Stay in building were check in is. The other is close to a street.

Enjoyed the "apartment" feeling of the space. We rented a 2-bedroom unit. We did not use the kitchen or the fridge but those amenities were nice. Newer facility located on main drag close to lots of restaurants and shopping. The whole set up feels like an apartment complex. The lobby is very minimal. The breakfast is adequate but in a small-ish space. Staff was friendly. The pool also is very small--not a place for lounging really. They allow pets which is likely a major selling point for some. The beds were not super comfortable; that's our only complaint. The pullout sofa was not great, as expected, but it was really more of a love seat than a full couch. We only slept one there as planned but this might say "sleeps 6" which would be tough.

Met most of my needs: clean, convenient, nice staff, usual amenities, etc. The room was spacious, but the layout was kind of strange.

The only thing I didn't really care for was the breakfast. The breakfast room was way too small for the size of the hotel and there weren't many food choices
