It's the little things Right

In the heart of BIG TEN land, I could not have been more disappointed to have been told this past Saturday afternoon, even though it's still on your hand typed room TV chart, we dropped the Big Ten network. Then because the $115 isn't enough, we want another $8-15 for wi-fi. It was a cold morning as I sat for the $14 breakfast buffett. My food tasted good, but the lobby/restaurant was so cold all of the guests had their coats on. Poor value

weekend of soccer

We were on our own for reservations this time since not every team went. I booked through Online to save money. The room was nice, didn't get the chance to use many of the amenities, and the breakfast was wonderful (very nice, healthy, variety). The staff was pleasant enough but I wasn't comfortable, like they looked down on me.

Needs some attention

Room smelled very musty and the TV had horrible reception. Couldn't watch anything because it kept cutting in and out.

Shopping and then to the Fair

Very busy at the hotel, but the staff was right on top of things and things went very well. Took the shuttle to Jordan Creek for a little shopping then on the State Fair. Wish I had brought my suit for a dip in the pool. Heard the water was fine!

If your husband has meetings like mine did and took our vehicle, that the shuttle to Jordan reek. Only 5 bucks! Cheaper and more convenient than a cab!

Great location, great hotel choice!

This hotel is ideally located near I 80 & I 35., near Jordan Creek mall and many eateries. Our hotel room was well appointed with a very comfortable bed. The staff was very accomodating and helpful. I would definately recommend this hotel.

Under Construction

Our room was clean and the bed was very comfortable. Due to the construction the check in was being done in a side hallway and it was a very small area. I have been in other hotels when they are remodeling the loby and it was not a problem. This was terrible when you came and went for the hotel there were always people trying to check in with bags. I am sure there was a better solution than this. The check in staff was slow.

Good for the price.

When we got to the hotel at 3:30 our room wasn't ready. The first front desk person wasnt very helpfull. When we finally got into our room at 5:30 the staff that was on was very pleasant. We went to the pool and the heat lamps didnt work so the water was freezing. The rooms were clean for the most part there was some dirt or food on the curtains. The hotel was good for how much we paid but I have had better and expected better from a Marriott hotel.
