“Consistently Great!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 12, 2014

Stay here fairly often on business. They probably have the friendliest and most attentive staff of any hotel I've stayed in. Have never had a problem with the room. Always able to get a late checkout to accommodate business meetings, etc. If you don't like feather pillows make sure you request foam ones--feather is standard. Really relaxing having that ocean view. Highly recommend this hotel!

Room Tip: I always request the top floor (13) and have always been accommodated.

Staff was fantastic, room was great. We had to book in a rush and needed late checkout the next day, everyone was very accommodating. Would recommend to anyone, especially with pets. It was snowing and staff rushed to open doors for us because we had our hands full with the dogs.
Room had everything we could use and was very well stocked. Room was very clean,
The difference between an average experience and a great experience was definitely the staff.

Nice time with family to celebrate my sister 50th birthday, Staff was extremely nice, (PATRICK WILSON) Though parking is tight, it worked out for my in our favor. Breakfast was great. View was nice. Not as bad as others have rated it. There are far worse places to stay at the Oceanfront.

Upon reviewing the hotel in person before reserving a room with Trip Advisor, Ms. Adrienne showed us a room that I was able for us on the night of our stay. The experience was great because Mr. Patrick provided the same room that we viewed. In addition he (Patrick) was helpful, courteous, and friendly. Thank for providing us with the best hospitality from a hotel in a long time.

The rave reviews on Trip Advisor/ Yelp where off the mark on this property, maybe I stayed at the wrong hotel. Usually my fellow TA travelers are spot on about hotels, but this one was extremely average. Yes its got a great location on the beach, with plenty to do near by and restaurants within walking distance...and yes the rooms are large with a good sized kitchen and the separate bedroom plus the additional area for stretching out or the kids watching TV/playing video games but the place is dirty. I know you are by the water but you felt like the whole place needs to be closed for a week so it can be cleaned top to bottom and maintenance items addressed. The staff is friendly, breakfast passed the test, but the real kicker is parking. For a property that has 100 plus rooms how about less then twenty parking spots. If you go out to dinner or move the car during the days, your cooked. The hotel staff is aware of the issue and working to help guests with a free valet type system where you leave your keys they double park your car in the lot until they have time to drive your car FOUR blocks away. (Dont let the fire dept see this set up) I am sorry when traveling I like to leave additional items in the car, so I just don't like this set up. I want my keys in my possession and be able to see the car if possible. I see the staff is doing the best they can but HUGE liability for employees and the hotel owner. Lots of vacant lots around, maybe something closer or more convenient for guests and staff could be worked out. So there you have it, it gets the job done but I have certainly seen a better product out of Marriott..

Beautiful view, clean rooms, attentive staff, family friendly. Thank you to the staff in particular the front desk. We enjoyed the thick comfortable bedding and a balcony with an oceanfront view. The boardwalk is immaculate. Oct - Mar there is a VA business that has a permit to bring horses to the beach. There was nothing like horseback riding in the waves in January with Navy fighter jets overhead. Military and cargo ships passing in the night add to the whole atmosphere. Easy access to main arteries and highways. Worth a return visit. Big thanks 'yall from this Chicago gal!
