But it wasn’t. The front desk people were very nice. The location is also convenient as you’re close to just about anything you’d need, but set back on a quiet street. It has many amenities such as workout room, indoor pool, court area and some patio seating. I reserved a 2 room suite for the 4 of us for 2 nights. Upon arrival, it was clear that people had smoked in there. It was particularly strong in the bathrooms. I double checked my reservation info to make sure I had not made a mistake. The entire property is listed as non-smoking. I went to the front desk to see if there was another room, but there wasn’t. I was told to check the next day. The next morning, I was told they were again sold out. We had the windows open as much as we could with the temperatures and bought air fresheners which helped a little. While we were out for the afternoon, they brought in ozone machines to clean the air. I believe they may have only used one as one bathroom did smell a little less, but the other one was still bad. The plates in the cabinet were stuck together and a pitcher had mold in it. The curtains have some kind of motor that opens and closes them. Sounds nice, doesn’t it? Not so much when they randomly operate themselves at all hours of the day and night. The bathroom doors stick on the floor. I’m hoping that my 2 kids who now have sore throats are able to recover quickly. I got a good rate through, but was told I wouldn’t get any Marriott points. And as I paid through the app, I couldn’t go somewhere else as by the time I was informed there would be no other room for the 2nd night, it was too late. I should have picked the Courtyard next to it. Or stayed in the dorm.

The staff is friendly as soon as you walk in the door. My room was clean and felt fresh as I walked in. Breakfast was delicious and the employee was attentive. I stayed for one evening, and would have liked to stay longer. This hotel has a small kitchen which would work out great for anyone staying for an extended time.

Great! — fabulous breakfast maybe the best, attentive employees, well-equipped kitchen space, beautiful art work, generally quiet from neighbors, warm pool, hot hot tub Caveats — key failed multiple times, pool was over-chlorinated to the point of lingering headache, some vents in suites were black or dusty.

We have stayed at this location a number of times the past few years. The location is convenient to the east side of Evansville. Right off the Bypass and the Lloyd, close to shopping and restaurants. Indoor pool with jacuzzi. Room was clean and all the amenities worked well. Dishwasher was a real treat. The lady at the front desk was exceptional. Very helpful both during reservations and at check in. Just super nice! This kind of service is usually the deciding factor when choosing between hotels.

Pros: Breakfast provided Spacious room. The size of small apartment Cons: The room had not been dusted in a while The fan in the bathroom is extremely loud The bathroom had not been cleaned. There was toilet stains and hair in the shower The room had not been vacuumed I’m going to assume the maid changes sheets and towels and that’s it. There was a slight wet dog smell but I was aware this hotel is pet friendly ahead of time. When I asked for a room not pet friendly I was told there are not any at this hotel. This hotel has potential if the cleaning crew would actually clean. I had stayed at this hotel before. I miss the fireplaces in the room. They’re still there but no longer work.

I stayed here two nights the week after Thanksgiving. I was visiting relatives but stayed in a hotel because I had a respiratory infection and wanted to keep my germs to myself as much as possible (plus just needed to sleep). I called and asked if they could check me in early and there was no problem - I was able to check in at 2:00 and they gave me a first floor room which I requested. This was my first stay at a Residence Inn because I really don't need that much room, but I thought my relatives might come by the hotel at some point so wanted the extra room. I really enjoyed the kitchen (wish I had one that nice in my apartment). I had some beverages with me, plus was able to make iced tea with the tea in the room, plus the freezer kept my ice frozen. Enjoyed the free breakfast each morning (didn't get to take advantage of the evening reception/snacks as I had dinner with family). The room was clean - the bedding was white and absolutely spotless. Carpet was clean too and in good shape (looked new), and the kitchen was also spotless. The bathroom vanity appeared new - nice new sink and great lighted mirror. But the shower liner needed replacing - it was slimy when it got wet (I advised the front desk of this on check out). Also, very dusty behind the nightstand (you could see it standing by the bed and it was clearly being ignored by housekeeping). Also, the rooms really need a bit of an update. The bottom part of the vanity really needed painting and the nightstands could use replacing. The rest of the furniture was fine. Weird to me was that there was no bedside clock, no hairdryer, and no luggage rack. I requested a hair dryer thought and they had it to my in just a few minutes. The service was good - friendly and they did their best to accommodate requests. No complaints there at all. It was also a very convenient location for me. Plenty of restaurants nearby, pretty view of the lake from my room. They also had a nice indoor pool, plus tennis courts outside. Would be great for families and they are pet friendly, which I always like to see even if I don't have my pet with me. So, overall a good stay even if I didn't get to use a lot of the amenities. The bed was very comfortable which was so important since I was sick and mainly slept and watched TV (great TV size and good channel selection). With just a little bit of work on some outdated room issues, this could be a much better hotel.

Friendly helpful front desk staff and housekeepers. Housekeepers very considerate of my working nights and they would freshen up room first if notified of need. Most rooms have range top and microwave with large refrigerator. All have full set of dishes for four people and dishwasher! Beds comfortable. Quiet location near maggots roads but away enough to be quiet. Manager reception enenings Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday with beer, wine and some heavy snacks like chili at Monday and Tuesday with light dessert stuff Wednesday

Currently staying five nights here to visit family nearby. Housekeeping didn't bother to show up yesterday and when I called the front desk to report this all they told me is that they would report it to management. Haven't heard a word from management. This hotel is in desperate need of a refurbishment...cabinet door in kitchen under sink is falling apart. Refrigerator hasn't been cleaned. Bathroom floor looks like it hasn't been cleaned in months. Lots of dust on furniture. Very poor experience for a Residence Inn. Will not be returning to this hotel in the future.

House Keeping! House Keeping! Out of 27 days they hardly cleaned. I had to change my sheets after 9 days, i was told by the front desk. It was supposed to be every other day. Good luck to that. The room across hall was left undone for 24 hours left like that.. On my floor the lazy house keeper would put the do not clean sign.. On 10 rooms. Supposedly the front desk lady said she told the management but im guessing he didnt care. Every time i pass by he was in his office playing on his phone or something. For this hotel to have Marriot on there name should be embarrassed. Pretty sad when i had to take my own trash downstairs. I had some change on the table that someone helped them selves to it. Who knows maybe they needed it more than me. There are plenty of other hotels go there closer to the restaurant on the other side of Eagle crest street. The breakfast was ok coffee set up was great. Thats the only reason i am not rating terrible. I didnt want to keep complaining due to backlash.

Reservation made 6 months in advance, used mobile checkin day in advance ( will never do this again), room guaranteed for 3pm checkin, at 4:30 told might be ready in half hour. Called Marriott Platinum Elite number to see if could stay at Marriott Courtyard---learned when Marriott sends you an email to check in early, if you do so, Rewards number folks cannot change reservation. Once in room internet connection not work, tried to call front desk but got message mailbox full, tried to get outside line but couldn't, so went down to desk. Told internet sign indirections wrong for this property.....!! Other than major ant issues in kitchen and on sofa, we survived. Absolutely worse Marriott ever. Tonight at an awesome Marriott Fairfield Inn in Jackson (Pearl, Ms). Tried to contact Marriott Customer Relations....first hold was 12 minutes after taking to phone answerer, so hung up and tried later...after 11 minute hold after talking to second agent, decided they didn't care about us.
