We met our daughter and family there for the weekend,if you travel with pets stop here,great place off Barret Parkway,Very clean,close to everything,Staff are so friendly and will go above and beyond helping you feel welcome.Make sure to try Raffertys great place to eat just ask front desk for directions the back way.
At 1st glance the 2 BR, 1 BA is not sooo bad, really. But then you notice:
1. super thin walls - to sides and above
2. teeny-tiny microwake in kitchen, small fridge, small stove, the 4 glasses they give you.
3. Dirty bathroom with spots that just need some bleach and scrubbing (that has not been done in a while).
4. The humidity of the room with regular AC PLUS 2 window units poorly installed - one unit was in the living room and one was in 1 of the bedrooms, but the other bedroom did not have one... Unsure of this whole set-up. The unit had huge gaps at the sides that allowed anything and everything to get through (Check out the pics).
5. Window unit in oe bedroom has cord stung across half of room around desk chair instead of using another plus with extension or some other sort of option.
6. Beware if people are above you (we were on the ground floor). It sounded like Elephants above us.
7. The "breakfast" was pulled out on carts in th emorning and of course, there was no seating - you HAD TO bring it back to your room... juggling hot coffee, food, with no help - fun when you have a small child in towe. They should offer some sort of carry container or tray or something.
8. If you really were trying to cook here - look out - a VERY minimum number of utensils too!
9. There are some old Cigaret burns in the tables
10. We called about a lamp on teh desk that did not work... so for the rest of our stay (2 more days) there was NO light... they just removed it - that's all! GREAT!
There is VERY, very few good I can say. I did like the bathroom layout with the sink area seperate from the tub and toilet - but neighter had a fan so if you did not keep the door to the shower shut after a shower - the mirrow would fog up - but I just kept it closed.
There is NO WAY I would ever stay here again... both y husband and I agree that Marriott would be ashamed at this! Look at the pics for yourself and make a decision. We stayed 3 nights, then went to another state, stayed in a MUCH NICER (MUCH!) Residence Inn for lese money and gee... did I say it was much nicer?
Good luck! I hope this helps - let me know if it does help!
By the way... they do have a tiny fitness center, but we did not use it.
I frequently stay at Marriott properties which are suites, and have never stayed in one that is so worn and unkempt. Dresser and closet were broken beyond repair. (A repairman did come to try to fix the drawers but said there was nothing more he could do..and he was right!) Cobwebs in the corner of the bedroom. Sofa worn and saggy. Internet works only intermittently and I was told by the front desk that I needed to call an outside service for technical support, which I did after 3 frustrating days. They reset the router and said that it needed to be done every couple of days. Why it takes a guest to make that call, I have no idea. Kitchen inventory: dishes, silverware, bowls, is sparse. one of three washing machines was broken throughout our stay. One of two treadmills was broken throughout our stay. There was a truck of construction workers parked outside, who "rigged" one of the doors so a room key was not necessary to enter. Whether or not they were paying guests, I don't know, but I suspect they were doing work at the hotel and spending the night there.
Floors and walls are paper thin. You can hear your neighbors next door and above you. Our room was next to the elevator, so we heard that too.
This hotel needs a whole makeover, and then might be worth what they charge. I'd recommend going down the block to one of the Hilton properties: Homewood Suites, Hampton Inn, or Hilton Garden Inn instead. We had friends staying in all three hotels and visited their rooms and they were soooo much nicer. We tried to switch, but unfortunately, they were all booked for the week.
This is a great value, especially with Corporate Rates. It is consistently comfortable, clean, and convenient. Add great location, quietness and a courteous staff to that mix, and you'll know why I keep returning. Great proximity to restaurants on Barrett Blvd, proximity to Cobb Parkway (Hwy 41), and access to I-77. Nice, full kitchen. Lots of cable channels (no adult channels if your looking for those). Rockers outside for the smokers.
Thank you for your response! We appreciate you choosing TownePlace Suites Kennesaw and Hope to see you again soon!
