“Strange room”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 21, 2014 via mobile

I was given a new updated room. The room was odd. The pros, the furniture was very cool and contemporary. The bed was comfy. The usb plugs were very fast and there were ample plugs for my gadgets. The cons, the bathroom was newly wallpapered but the shower was old. The phones, fridge and alarm clock were very old. The deadbolt did not fit in the door jam. There seemed to be a lot of useless space. Probably the biggest fault of this room is the tv. I was only in the hotel for 2 days and only turned the tv on once to watch a college basketball game. The problem is that I needed to work on my laptop during the game and the tv is right above the desk. It's virtually impossible to keep an eye on the tv while we work. I have it 3 stars based on the friendliness of the staff, the location is great, wifi is good, comfy bed and plugs for outlets. Thanks

We arrived on a 12/24/13 using a marriott rewards certificate. The entry way and " bistro" area as marriott calls their food area were clean and bright and had a very nice appearance. I am a silver rewards member and I have never stayed in any marriott of this poor quality. Our room was 103 although the phone in our room said 106 with a pen crossing off the 106 and a 103 written next to it. The bathroom-the towels smelled musty, the shower handle was brocken so we had to rig it in order for the warm water to stay warm and not too hot, the tub drain was rusted, the toilet paper dispenser was cut into the wall something you may see at older Howard Johnson hotels which would have been fine if there was not a 1/4 inch gap in the wall exposing the insulation and folded wall paper. The pool deck was dirty and the water smelled dirty like sulpher there were no clean towels a few green ones on chairs and two white ones on the rack used.
On christmas morning we went to the food area "bistro" to find one young lady very busy doing a great job and 2 other staff an older woman with glasses and the young getleman who checked us in the night before, at front desk just talking and watching the busy young lady working very hard! This property is a disgrace to the MARRIOTT Chain.

Thank you for taking the time to review us, we appreciate your feedback. We are very sorry that we did not meet your expectations.

We urge to come back and visit us again and experience a whole new stay. Please contact our general manager, Bryan Shepherd if you have any questions. We hope to have you as our guest again.

Employees were top-notch. From the moment we walked in to when we left they were very welcoming. However I can never understand, other than the profit motive, why so many hotels spend so much money on lobbies and remodeling of them as opposed to doing the basics correct.

No shampoo in the shampoo container (thanks for leaving the used one there), and some of the pillows weren't just not clean, they had makeup on them. And hair.

And the WiFi: poor reception, slow, and more like dial-up back in the day.

Work on the basics and get raving fans from that, and the rest of the income will come. Don't think I'd go back to the property.

Room Tip: Check the cleanliness and the supplies before it gets too late and you just can't deal with it.

I am a pretty loyal Marriott fan, and often stay at the Courtyard brand when traveling for business. This hotel does what Courtyard does well - comfortable and inviting lobby, decent small convenience store and very polite and nice employees.
However, this hotel suffered from two issues - both PCs in the business center were out of order and the bed was very uncomfortable. It may simply need a refresh, i.e. new mattress, but sleep was a challenge. This surprised me as Courtyard normally provides a comfortable night.

I booked this hotel because of its proximity to the airport and the customer I was visiting, what nice surprise, the initial greeting when I arrived, tired and jet lagged it was very welcome. It was good to be able to get a cold beer even though it was quite late. Room was pleasant with a nice balcony although the view was not that inspiring! But that's not the hotels fault!!
The young ladies serving breakfast were very nice and after only a couple of days had my coffee and fruit cup order ready without asking!
Bar was fine and not a bad place for a pre-bed nightcap

Already looking forward to returning

Overall the accommodations at this hotel were OK. The staff were extremely helpful where they could be, unfortunately the shuttle driver didn't know how to get from the hotel to the airport rental car destination and it ended up taking us 30 minutes to drive about 2 miles. The common areas of the hotel were clean and fresh but the room smelled like it hadn't been used in a long time and it was really musty smelling.

Stayed there one night, on our way back home from MI. Room smelled was terrible, musty, moldy. Worried about the health impact. Look at the yelp reviews, in line with that. Room was outdated as well, not in line with what I expect from Marriott. Would not stay here again
