There were some interesting maybe blood stains on the floor that we had to cover with a towel in order to walk around the front door and bathroom. We thought breakfast was included but you actually had to pay for it and it was pretty expensive for what you got. Ultimately we made it through our three night stay just fine.

The beds were fine the room was spacious. When you walk in for check-in it looks nice. The hallway to our room smelled. I thought it was just the bags of food that people put out of their room and stacked in the vending ice area, but the smell seemed to remain after that was cleared out. I remember thinking that the room was loud because we could hear the traffic all night, but it turns out that someone left the window open so when we shut it, the room was very quiet and nice. I couldn’t hear anything in the hall or outside the building. The pool is closed due to Covid, but we hoped to take advantage of sitting outside by the fire pit. The staff needs to be the one to turn it on, and we asked and she was slammed for about 45 minutes and then forgot (understandable). Some of the furniture has been torn up and maybe later in Spring it will look amazing. However, it would be better if they put their money in investing in technology. My child tried to log in to do schoolwork and it timed out before loading the page.

There was hair in the sheets, on the blanket, on the wash cloths and towels. Toilet seat needed replaced. Room was small. Pics were deceiving.

I liked the room. The shower did not work properly. I called two days in advance to o request an early check in. When I arrived, there was no note of it. I waited over one hour to get my room when I was told it would be 20 to 30 minutes.

Great Hotel!! Clean, affordable and comfortable beds!

For a Marriott and being a Marriott Awards member, it’s definitely on the low-end of a 3-star hotel. For an overnight stop off I-95, it’s fine. The heat was challenging to get it going and when the toilet is flushed is gives this loud high pitched squeal sound for at least 30 seconds. Also the configuration of the room is strange. Most importantly, the staff was friendly and accommodating.

Hotel staff was friendly and the room was updated and clean.

Good comfortable room on a quick stay. GOS had a lot of trouble getting me the final quarter of a mile to the hotel. It's tucked away behind a strip mall accessible from only one direction .

easy easy access to 95. clean, up-to-date, lovely staff!

Great location. Hotel very modern compared to most places in the area.

Hotel was very nice. We only stayed a couple of nights, however each day was better than expected. The hotel was very clean, staff was very nice and breakfast was excellent.

Hotel was ok nothing stood out as being great. Staff wasn't rude but also not super friendly either. Just did their job!

I enjoyed our stay. The room was clean, the staff was helpful, surroundings were quite

We had a great experience!! I would definitely recommend this hotel to others.

Front desk check-in was not up to par for this type of Hotel. Lacked that friendly feel. Check out was fine.

Hotel was clean, and newly renovated. They used none of the ubiquitous perfumes (air fresheners) that many hotels use to cover odors, because they weren't needed. Great location. Desk staff recommended a nice restaurant nearby. Great getaway weekend!

Stayed for a weekend while my son had a hockey tournament in the area. Great location and convenience. Would certainly stay at this hotel again! s

Pretty clean and new looking. Overall and average Hotel. Solid 3 stars.
