“Great view. Furnishings and bathroom dated”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 28, 2013

Beautiful view of the ocean and right on the boardwalk. Friendly staff. Furnishings were dated and the bed was very uncomfortable. Breakfast bar was very crowded with no table available. Probably too small for the number of rooms. Toilet stopped up twice.

We were sorry to spend only one night here. The room was perfect for us - clean, plenty of space, comfortable bed, enough mirrors throughout the room and outlets for charging electronics. The staff were very helpful and friendly. The view from our third floor room was amazing! The room had a little lanai with two chairs and a table. The location was perfect! And to top it all off, beautiful weather!

My boyfriend and I stayed for a single night to "get away." The hotel was very clean and the staff were very nice. We stayed in a King Suite with a Whirlpool! I requested a high floor and early check-in and they were able to accommodate both. We did have one issue during our stay. The first room they put us in had a broken whirlpool. Within an hour of notifying them of the problem, we were switched to another room and they discounted our room. We weren't under any time restraint or any schedule so the delay didn't effect us or our stay. I do commercial property management so we understood things happen and were satisfied with their resolution to the problem. Will definitely stay again for future nights to ourselves or with our son! :)

We have a room with 2 queen beds. Lots of space. Ocean view. Coffee maker in the room. Lots of electrical outlets. We like it! No problem with heat, as some others have commented. Staff is friendly and flexible.

This is the third time I've visited this hotel while visiting family. For some reason, they have now decided to save money by conserving heat.

Although the lobby was warm, we noticed the hallway to the room was cool and the room itself very cold. The heat had been turned completely off in the room.

Instead of asking for another room, which is what we should have done, we turned on the heat figuring the room would quickly warm-up. We were wrong. It takes quite a bit of time for the system to warm up. So, about 45 minutes after turning on the heat, we still went to bed in a cold room.

Tip: If you plan to visit this hotel in the winter, ask them to turn on your heat before you arrive.

We stayed here for a second time for an event in November. The hotel staff was as accommodating and the rooms were as nice as the last time. The free breakfast buffet was sufficient with a good selection, the beds were restful, the shower pressure good and the parking free. The only negative was a very slow free internet, apparently caused because the hotel was full. As having the hotel full is a good thing, I recommend that the hotel look into upgrading their bandwidth. The hotel has a fantastic view and the location is easy to reach. Several friends stayed at hotels further inland at half the price, but they did not have the great view and the calming sound of the sea at night. The hotel's location also facilitates morning walks and runs on the beach walkway, which is easily accessible directly from the hotel.

We had a 2 room suite and it easily held 4 people. Hotel is a little worn, but overall better than most Fairfields. The balcony and view, though quite cold, was awesome of the ocean and huge winter waves. Breakfast changed up each day and had hot foods which is rare at Fairfields. The only thing I can complain was the cold pool and the too small whirlpool. What is it with the Marriott hotels. The pools as of late are just too cold, especially for winter, and the whirlpool sizes hold 2 to 3 people for a hotel with over a hundred rooms. The workout room was poor, but with a great view of the ocean and boardwalk. The christmas lights were terrific on the boardwalk and on the beach and from our room we could see the stretch of the Christmas lights which were 3 miles including the santa, deer and sleigh on the pier stretching into the cold ocean and we watched surfers in wet suits. Recommend Busch Gardens Christmas Festival as well.

Room Tip: All rooms have balconies, some rooms have 2!
