3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Nice hotel. Great amenities. I would stay here again.

Pleasant staff, room was clean but hallways very dirty. Felt like the entire place could use a good once-over. Was bothered twice by housekeeping before the 12:00pm checkout on the day we were leaving- they came in once without knocking! I would have liked another option than tortillas with eggs on second day of stay.

Housekeeping didn't check the alarm clock SO it went off at 6am when we didn't check in until 1:30am ! THEN the phone receiver was disconnected.... they have to have a better checklist of things to do. Otherwise the management was friendly and understanding when I complained, they handled it very professionally.

Soccer tournament cancelled other hotels in area refunded people on our team while Marriott refused.

Missed not having a bar but there are close options off property.

Clean, spacious rooms. Free hot breakfast (eggs, sausage, waffles, coffee, juice). Very friendly and quick staff. I'd stay here again for sure.

Great place to stay! The only drawback is that they no longer have the managers reception thursday-sunday.

I look forward to booking a future stay at the Residence Inn by Marriott. :)

The hotel was a bit further from the ocean than expected but was a nice place overall. The rooms were clean and everything was in working order.

The room itself was nice. We had a room with separate living area. The problem with any hotel stay is/are.. anything that goes wrong. We got up at 6:00 am to shower, and could not get hot water. IT took until 10:30 am to get reliable hot water, and this may be a problem for those on a schedule. Yes, I could have taken a miserable cold shower, but NOT for $180 a night. Since we were on an overnight stay, and not on a schedule it was ok. They offered us to take a shower in another room, but do the math on that.. The hotel was not at capacity, so I am not sure why we had this problem. When I called the front desk, she didn't seem all that surprised. If you are planning on using this hotel, make sure you verify your room is not subject to this problem. We were on the 3rd floor, and of course I don't know how the place is plumbed. I called in advance to verify the bathtub size (for a couple to bathe in). Was told they are large enough for that activity, but was lied to. The bathtub is small, like most are. Complimentary Breakfast was better than most (scrambled eggs, waffles, sausage) , but no fruit available. I checked that I "would recommend" this hotel, but this assumes getting a hot shower. And, this is a better hotel for business, or family stays, and only "ok" for couple's stays.

The room and the hotel are well maintained.

Great property for families. The distance from the beach was further than anticipated, but still a short drive. Hotel staff and amenities were great.
