Recently assisted/attended a national conference at this downtown Marriott. Every employee we met was more than helpful. Would stop what they were working on to assist our group and ensure our comfort and needs were met. Did not spend the night, but was able to see one of the rooms. Very clean, attractive and well appropriated

Very nice staff, friendly sports bar. We had an accessible room that was very nice and met our needs perfectly. The hotel was busy but the staff was super helpful and responsive. I would stay again without hesitation.

We had a group stay here. The group rate was good. Hotel is a little old, but they have done
a good job of keeping it up. They did not charge extra for parking and there were always
sufficient spaces in the garage. Breakfast cost extra, but it was good and reasonably priced
for the buffet. I would return.

This was a very nice property. Very Clean and well kept. There were some noisy guests next door to our room and we were promptly moved at our request. Very helpful, courteous and friendly staff. Nice facilities for food and cocktails, as well.

Our party was pretty disappointed in this older Marriott, and felt that the value was not very good at $179 plus $10 internet and $12 self-parking. The hotel common spaces and the room itself looked worn-out and tired. The parking facility was not good and it was pretty confusing getting from it to the room...had to walk thru the pool area, but no signage.

One of my big pet peeves was the lack of electrical outlets in the rooms for laptops, phones, and, in my case, medical equipment. This is so easily solved with lamps that have outlets in the base, but twas not to be here. I had to get back behind the bed to find an outlet...yuck..dirty, dusty, nasty...not deep cleaning done in a long time here. Beds were also old and saggy....just not a quality Marriott experience.

Dear Carol S,

My team and I appreciate you choosing to stay with us. Your feedback regarding the plugs is being addressed as we speak as our room’s refreshment includes three lamps with multiple plugs. I have also shared your comments with my room team to let them know they need to do a better job deep cleaning the behind the beds. We have also recently implemented complimentary internet along with reasonably priced High Speed options. I have spoken to the City about the garage signage and they have committed to improving that as well. My team and I appreciate you choosing to stay with us and look forward to welcoming you back soon.

Kindest Regards,

Joel Darr
General Manager

Really enjoyed the hotel. Clean fresh and really friendly staff. Breakfast was very good. Bartender was friendly and made a great margarita with freah squeezed juices. Asked for late check to accomidate moving son into college and allow for a quick shower before getting on the road home. Very accommodating. Went for a run in the morning and the surrounding area seemed great. Would live to walk around area more.

The motel was very nice, clean, and comfortable. The location was good, the staff friendly and helpful. The only drawback was the breakfast was very pricy and definately not worth the cost. Would stay again, just go somewhere else for breakfast.
