“Not up to the Marriott standard - but a great place if your kid plays baseball”
Reviewed August 2, 2013

I can summerize my experience with "ehhh".I had to check-in on a Friday evening for about a week. I knew I was probably not going to be happy when they didn't offer the government per diem rate for the week-end, even though they are located right outside a military base. The building is huge and sits right next to the Ripken Stadium - it is divided with one half a Residence Inn and the other the Courtyard Marriott. Right away I knew this wasn't your typical Courtyard when the elevator buttons were a mess - they looked like something from inside a heavily used subway station. The door that faces the parking lot was often broken and unable to be opened from outside. I found out why in the morning, there are little league tournaments going on all summer long. The place was just overwhelmed with kids and parents from these tournaments. So if you’re participating in these, you can’t beat the location, but if you’re in the Aberdeen area for business, forgetaboutit. The staff is just overwhelmed; these kids are running around essentially in a carnival type atmosphere. There just isn’t enough staff to keep up with the work load created by the tournament guests. The pool is in continuous use - with no life guard. Then they let people who are not a guest use the one business computer connected to a printer – one woman comes every day to work on a book she is writing – and when she isn’t on there the kids are on surfing the web. The poor bar tender essentially works alone as a waitress and a bar tender – sometimes leaving the bar unattended for up to 20 minutes. Then there was the furniture in the rooms – the desk chair was so dilapidated and uncomfortable I was shocked this place calls itself a Marriott. If you’re not associated with a youth baseball team stay away.

Room Tip: go one exit in either direction and pike another hotel

We stayed here for a week long tournament at Cal Ripken and while the hotel is very clean I found the staff very rude and non accommodating. Not only did we pre pay for our room and stayed for 5 nights, they would not allow me an extra hour to check out. The weather was terrible outside and the woman at the front desk said that they were expecting more teams to check in that night for another tournament. My son also lost his iPod and we checked several times at the front desk to see if anyone had turned it in. I also found that they were not very helpful when it came to providing assistance as we asked almost every day. Later it was returned to us by the cook over at the adjoining hotel who had notified the staff that he had found it. If we ever return to Aberdeen we will not stay at this hotel again. I recommend they hire some new staff who have more experience in providing paying customers with service that matches the quality of this facility.

I stayed here for one night when my son played in a Ripken tournmanet. Paid a little extra for the field view and it was worth it. Hotel is what I expected being a Marriott. The staff was professional and accommodating, rooms were spacious and clean. I will definitely stay here again and recommend it to others.

The Courtyard has its advantages over the Residence in some ways. You can pay for field view, rather than waiting a ridiculous amount of time for it, the staircase is much nicer, and parking is more accessible. However, for the price you are paying/points you are losing, the Residence is much more worth it. Residence has free breakfast, while Courtyard does not. Rooms are very small. 5,000 more points per night (if staying 2 nights).

Room was great as I expect from Marriott. Location in Ripkin field complex literally right next to the stadium is beyond convenient! My only issues were they have a 7 day cancellation policy. Other nearby hotels have same day cancellation policies (but they are about a mile from the field). Also would like to see a better evening dining option since there is no other dining in the complex.

Room Tip: Even number rooms look out onto the ironbirds stadium. Odd numbered rooms overlook Cal Sr. Stadium...

Hotel staff excellent, room and bathroom are spacious, bed comfortable. Always like AC that I can control. I was there only one night but could have stayed longer. Hotel was a bit difficult to find because a street is closed; but this is not the hotel's fault. I called hotel and was given excellant and patient assistance. Very pleasant stay. Will stay there again if ever in that area.

The service in this hotel was simply exceptional. And that's not an overstatement. Travis at check in went above and beyond any Marriott experience we've had. Terry at the bar made us feel like we were right at home. Unfortunately the air conditioning wasn't working so we were hotter than we might have liked. Signage from the highway isn't easy..but we would definitely return despite the air conditioner issue.

Room Tip: front of the hotel faces Ripken stadium; back of the hotel looks over several fields.
