As usual, the rooms and property were clean, but I am seeing more tired Marriott properties. Carpeting and furnishings appear to be dated. Although the carpeting did not need to be replaced from wear and tear. the patterns and colors needed to be addressed.

Not bad, room was clean and ac worked well during the 99 degree weather. Hotel is well kept, but a $169 per night, it was just average. Staff was friendly. The hotel is off of the main road and a little hard to find. More like a 100-125 per night place.
