Stayed here for a wedding. We were pleasantly surprised that they had just replaced all mattresses with tempurpedic mattresses. Super comfy. You can tell the hotel is older but they did a nice job with the remodel. Our suggestions for improvement would be a microwave and an in room safe. The staff was exceptional. Our cab was really late to...

Absolutely first rate stay. The room was comfortable and it was one of the best hotel beds I have ever slept on. HAVC was great, shower was great, TV selection was great. Great selection of morning papers.Can't think of anything at all that was sub-par.

We loved the beds and the pool. The room was super quiet all night even with a very busy hotel and we woke up refreshed and ready for the rest of our road trip. The staff was very friendly and courteous. Great place! I think it helped that we got a killer deal on our room. Would stay again, though...

This hotel is dated on the outside and does not look like a 4 star hotel. Inside it was clean. Staff was friendly.

We stayed here to attend a wedding. I'm not a big Marriott fan (c'mon guys, would a shower cap bankrupt you?), but I liked this hotel. Our king room was comfortable--no complaints except about its location. In addition to attendees of four weddings, there were participants in a youth basketball tournament staying there that weekend, so our pool-facing room was...

We found most of the staff to be rude and argumentative. House keeping and maintenance speak broken English and do not understand English well. Avoid low floor rooms if possible they have terrible views of a stoned roof not what you would expect from a resort property. We found our room in need of repairs and updates as it was...
