Great stay, a little noisy but everyone quieted down around 10:30pm. The only issue: I get the feeling the city or county is using one of the floors for temporary housing.

I asked for a king size bed,when I got there they had given it to someone else.

Very friendly staff rooms clean and we'll maintained

This hotel is close to UC Riverside and nearby commercial establishment.

Easy to get to off the freeway, and close to downtown. Everything at the hotel was simple and easy(even late check-in), the staff was polite, and the rooms were nice. Only problem we had was the toilet didn't flush very well so we went ahead and inform the front desk at checkout. She thanked me and told me she would let the maintenance know.

We were unable to check in for over an hour and a half past check in so we started unhappy. At some point during the stay we located a pair of sun glasses just slightly under the bed which had to have been left by a previous hotel guest. Says a lot about the cleaning staff!!!!

I had booked 2 rooms on seperate reservations for back to back days. First Reservation: Upon check-in I was told that the room I prepaid for was unavailable and they gave me another room which was not to my liking at all (double bed instead of king bed). I ended up getting violently sick within two hours of checking in. The next morning, my husband went downstairs and spoke with a the new desk person in the morning who was extreamly accomodating. They allowed us to stay longer in the room past check out and told us they would call us as soon as the first room was available. Within an hour they called us and we were able to check into our room early. All my husband had to do was go downstairs and sign the paperwork. I was extreamly grateful for the way the morning shift desk clerks handled this and if I wasn't so sick, I would have thanked them in person! They deserved to be recoginzed for their impeccible hospitatlity.

I spent more money expecting more than I got. Walking to the room the hallway was dirty. You could see the carpet had not been vacuumed for a while. When entering our room it was decent but when we went to take a nice relaxing bath the tub was noticeably dirty so shower it was. Also small ants throughout the room as well. The lobby was redone you could tell but the outside side was rundown. I expected more for the price I paid or I would of just stayed at a motel 6.

Your typical courtyard. Clean and nice and convenient. Loved that there was a microwave and fridge in the room. The only downside was the gym is far less than desirable which is important to me. It was a tiny room without air conditioning. But good hotel otherwise.

Since our reservation was special rate, the Marriott system showed it as cancelled. We were lucky to have someone who was familiar with this nuance, and was able to address it right away. That was awesome! Plus, our teenager inadvertently signed up for the paid internet and the front desk immediately addressed the issue to revert us back to the free internet. We were still billed, but again, the front desk immediately resolved the issue. We were extremely grateful for the quick, easy and efficient service. We did not meet any unfriendly staff here, which was very refreshing. The location was great for us, as we could drive around the UCR campus for our teenager. As well, as drive to other campuses nearby. There are a good number of eatery and grocery stores nearby. That was very convenient. We were traveling as a group of 8 with 2 rooms for 8 days. We were assigned rooms adjacent from each other. That was great too. We didn't think to ask prior to check-in. We would definitely return to this Marriott.

Great place and friendly staff, We really enjoyed the lobby lounge area where watched television and mingled with other hotel guest at the Bristol.

Should have better food and hotel is under remodeling so it is a little messy. However overall it is a good hotel and will stay again.

The hotel was nice and clean. Close enough to downtown riverside so that it was in a good location.

Everything was great. But we didn't get a free breakfast like most hotels offer. They were refurbishing the floor below us which is a good thing for them. Ours had already been refurbished. Nice and very clean.Very comfortable beds.

Comfortable and quiet room. The staff at the Bistro in the lobby was fun to chat with. Convenient location.

The hotel was convenient to the UC Riverside campus, where my meetings were being held. The room was comfortable. However, the hotel was undergoing renovations so the restaurant was closed. Breakfast was set up in the elevator hallway. Once the renovations are completed, I'm sure the total experience will be improved.

I didn't stay long but the Marriott was just what I needed. I have come to trust their brand and it has never disappointed.
