“Great overall value hotel”
Reviewed August 15, 2011

I stayed at this hotel with my son when in town for an event that we were attending. I reserved the room through the Marriott website and the room was exactly as I reserved (including the upper-floor room and extra pillows). The best part of staying at this hotel was the check-in and check-out experience. The desk clerk at check-in was extremely helpful, friendly and efficient. She recommended several restaurants and shopping locations in the area including giving us discount coupons to an area restaurant. This check-in experience set up a great stay. Check-out was equally great - the lady working the desk when we checked out was friendly and efficient.

The room was fine for this value hotel. The hotel was clean and everything worked. There could have been more choices for breakfast, but the food they had was fresh and the selection was adequate.

Overall, this was a great hotel with great employees.

2nd stay here this summer. Arrived late both nights so have no idea what was nearby. Did eat at Applebees down the street and was happy to see it. Small hotel, lobby and breakfast area. Bed was lumpy but linens were clean and no bed bugs. Breakfast was nothing to write home about. No frig in room. We are Gold Rewards Club members, had a guaranteed reservation and were told the last king room available when we checked in was Handicapped Accessible. We took it, but didn't like the wheel-in shower. When I checked again at the front desk, they said they had other king rooms but not on the first floor. Why didn't they give us that option at check-in? We ended up switching rooms to a double Queen on the 1st floor. Would've liked the options at checkin. Not right at the exit, but with Mapquest instructions, we found it okay. Towels were thin and some were stained. What has happened to the Fairfield brand? The last few stays haven't been up to Marriott standards.

Everyone seemed very friendly during our stay:) The rooms were your average size hotel room and were very clean. We did stay in a room with a king bed and a sofa bed....the bed was incredibly comfortable (pillow-top like) yet the sofa sleeper: not so much (typical of those things, though).

There is one elevator for the entire property and it is a tad narrow, however, so it can be challenging to get a luggage cart on board with other people riding along.

I only saw one ice machine on the main floor (three floors of rooms), but on the flip side, our king room had a microwave AND dorm-sized refrig. :)

BEWARE: Apparently if you reserve/pay online with a debit card, you do get an additional $50 taken from you. It is refunded when you check out, but don't expect to see the actual refund credit for up to a week. We did NOT know this was going to happen prior to making the reservation and arriving to check in.

Other than that, I have no major complaints here. A GREAT part of town (seems to be an upper-class area) with a mall in arm's reach and a myriad of chain-y restaurants littered up and down the main drags :)

Room Tip: Back view is of a Menard's back lumber yard...others-parking lot.

We stayed her as we passed through the area on our way to NYC. We found it to be a good value. The rooms were in good condition and clean. The hotel was located near a multitude of stores and restaurants which is convenient. The only downside to this hotel was that the breakfast area was very, very small for the size of the hotel. We ended up eating around an ottoman from the lobby furniture for our family of 3 for lack of tables and chairs.

We stayed here while visiting family in the area. The hotel was clean, and the front desk staff members were friendly and helpful. The location was nice, with many stores and restaurants near by. My only complaint is that when I reserved the room online, the travel website I used stated that the hotel had laundry services. Upon checking in, I learned that there are no coin-op washers or dryers and nor other laundry service. This was a big deal to us because we have small (read: messy) children and were in town for several days, and I didn't want to sit at a laundromat in town for three hours to do laundry. I would stay here again if it was just overnight, but otherwise no.
