This hotel was the place to go when you wanted to be in Sanibel without paying the prices on the island. We would stay all the time. Unfortunately after a quick getaway with my husband last night, I will look elsewhere next time. So here is the positive the gentleman at the front desk was absolutely wonderful when we checked in. The breakfast was great with lots of variety for a grab and go COVID breakfast. Now here is where I feel the hotel has lost its appeal! When you walk in the place where breakfast was held is under construction and the smell of mold is overwhelming with the air blowers going. So we get up to the room and the first thing I always do is to remove the blanket from the bed...( I bring my own and do this at every hotel) so I was disgusted to see used tissues laying in the bed. Immediately we call and when we got downstairs the gentleman (sorry didn’t recall his name) had a new set of keys for me but said he had no more suites this room didn’t have a separate bedroom....not a big deal because it was just my husband and I. So we go to the new room. Bed was clean, but my husband went to turn on the shower and we heard gurgling in the kitchen and the aroma from the sink was awful! Ok we can deal so he showers and said you need to call downstairs because the shower wasn’t draining. I was done and said we can tell them in the morning. It did eventually go down but showering in a foot of used water even though it was my own was gross. The next morning we check out and I proceed to let the lady at the front desk know if the problem. I was turned off at the fact that she was not wearing her mask correctly as it was down under her nose. How can you expect guests (which many were not wearing masks) to wear them when the staff isn’t. Again did not feel COVID safe from a dirty bed to not appropriately wearing a mask. We travel a lot even during this pandemic but this was the first time staying in a hotel where I left disgusted.…
Joseph at the front desk was extremely helpful! I had a small issue with my room, but he instantly moved me and brought me new keys within 10 minutes. The rooms look very similar as pictured. The TV’s in the rooms are huge, and the room is fully equipped like a mini apartment.
Staff at the hotel were pleasant and did their best to accommodate. Unfortunately the property is not being maintained. Utensils in the kitchen were both unsanitary and unsafe (Teflon flaking). The hotel had no spares so I had to purchase utensils to use during my stay. Even though at a great location I would not recommend staying at the hotel if you plan to purchase se the in-suite kitchen facilities. We looked at the outdoor barbecue and it was also filthy. It looked like it had not been cleaned for n weeks.
The Good: Excellent Customer Service and shout out to the 3 guys at the front desk who could not have been nicer. Location, location, location near Sanibel Causeway, across from outlet stores and restaurants. 500 walkable feet from shopping plaza with grocery, 4 restaurants, homemade ice cream, bike shop, etc. Housekeeping seen cleaning frequently. TV remote controls wrapped in plastic option of phone QR code for access. All magazines, papers, books, pens removed from room due to Covid. Automated hand sanitizer dispensers throughout. Quiet. The Bad: Lawn never mowed during our 8 day visit. No waste bags pet walk area. Insert key cards still used vs tapping or phone access. Property in dire need of remodel; threadbare carpets, sagging furniture and cabinets held together rigged brackets, rusted and nonexistent kickplates appliances, bedroom and cabinet doors that won't close. Safe but nonvarying grab and go breakfast. The Ugly: Despite Marriott corporate published initiative and posters of various sizes everywhere, scores of guests without masks roaming around on a daily basis including a night of 20-some baseball people lounging on couches in front lobby! I did get an email from GM stating she regretted we observed these violations. …
Where do I start. I totally understand the challenges with trying to operate in our current challenging environment but the lack of effort on the part of this hotel is less than stellar. Starting at check-in we were provided a lettter on how the functions of housekeeping would work since we were extended stay guests. Upon arrival at the room I was shocked to find the lack of concern on cleaning of the unit. The cooktop was more than dirty and the top of the refrigerator had not been wiped down since the dust was so think on it you could write your name. In addition the windows in the living room area would not close and left about a 1/4 in gap at the bottom, this was the same in the bedroom. The front of the dishwasher had stains down the front of it and the windows had hand prints from the previous guest(s). There was not any dishwasher detergent left in the room and only a drying towel and no dish cloth. In the bathroom we only got two towels, two wash cloths and one hand towel and this was to last you for four days. I don’t use the same bath towel for four days at home and would not expect this at a Marriott hotel. On the fourth day when we got our replacements again we were only left two towels, two wash cloths and one hand towel. The morning grab and go breakfast was a joke. I totally understand that the days of the full hot breakfast are probably long gone but the breakfast that was bagged was something to be desired. Of the seven days we only got fruit two of those days and that was a green banana. The poor front desk staff were expected to do everything, yet when you tried to reach them no one was ever there. I would highly recommend not staying at this property if you are expecting Marriott standards as you will be disappointed just as I was. I am Platium Tititanimin Elite and certainly did not get the service that I would have expected. I travel hundred of nights each year for business and this was not a good experience. Marriott you need to get your act together at this property.…
