“Love the location. ”
Reviewed January 13, 2014 via mobile

My family and I stayed here for a weekend. The rooms are very clean, staff were very polite and courteous. We stayed in a double bed room. They provided a pack n play for my baby which I loved, because I didn't have to pack her's, which made it one less thing to pack with a 14 month old. They offer complimentary breakfast in the mornings, which was a plus. Great selection for breakfast. They also have a waffle station, which I enjoyed. Property is situated right of interstate 4 which I loved, made it easy to find places. There is Wendy's, Subway and Mac Donalds close by. You can also get to buy food at the Casino. You can also ask for a list of restaurants near by at the front desk. A plus was the Hard Rock Casino was 1 mile from this hotel and they offer a complimentary shuttle to and from the hotel to Hard Rock Casino. This is a good hotel for a family weekend getaway.

Stayed just one night but rooms was very clean and quiet. They were in the process of renovations in the lobby but only looks to be getting better. Excellent customer service as we'll from each person we came in contact with. Would defiantly stay again when in area.

I had a reservation for 2 nights and arrived at 1:15pm.......the outside of this property and the tiny pool area looked messy and dirty but I had a reservation and was a bit tired. Walked into the lobby and noticed a rotten food smell......clerk was not at front desk so I looked around and was surprised to see the breakfast area was still full of overflowing garbage cans and dirty serving area and dirty tables....it smelled like rotting garbage. Even over by the computers were still dirty cups and plates! Rewmember it was 1:15 in the afternoon!!!! Breakfast was over at 10 am!!! I asked if they had a room ready and was told NO ROOMS were ready yet.
At that point I cancelled my reservation and went elsewhere.....Hampton Inn had clean lobby, and clean rooms available.....Marriott you failed!!

Room Tip: cancelled my reservation...never made it to the room!

in town for just one night to visit the casino. This is a beautiful, well kept property. The front desk was very helpful; I had gift cards and they were quite difficult to process but it was processed hassle free. Great job on the breakfast (ie refilling, etc)

When we left home, it was 29 degrees. Got there, weather was beautiful warm in the high 70's. Location was in a business area and the room was smaller than expected. AC in our room wasn't working at all so we recheched in room next door where AC was working nicely. The free breakfast was decent with pastries, fresh apples and bananas, yogurt, & cereals. They had scrambled eggs and sausage patties but the scrambled eggs didn't look like real eggs so we didn't have any of it. When the lady brought out some fresh fruit salad, we thought it was a treat until we took a bite of it. I guess they sprayed some kind of fruit spray to keep them looking fresh, it was bitterly inedible. It was like that for the 3 mornings we were there.

It's a couple of blocks from the Hard Rock casino but we had a rental car so we didn't utilized their free shuttle which last pickup time is midnight.

Overall, we liked the staff and the location the hotel is in so we're fine with it.
