We were not able to get one of those rooms, and stayed on the end partly facing the water, but also the main roadway, which was noisy despite...

I'm a Gold member and I make it a point to always stay at a Marriott Hotel when out of town. For the price I paid, there was no refrigerator in the room, except for the day we registered and our last night, whenever we entered the hotel, NOBODY at the main desk acknowledged us when we entered the foyer,...

This is a standard Inn and suites perfectly situated near the whaling Museum and a place for dinner. Rooms as mentioned are neat, clean, in good condition and reasonably priced. I must mention that the woman working the breakfast area on Monday March 27th was wonderful. She cleaned, kept the trays fully stocked and appeared to know and have pleasant...

We stayed here for one night, using hotel reward points to attend my daughter's birthday party down the street at Knuckle Heads Bar & Grill. The rooms were spotless, and the staff very helpful and friendly.

First let me say that the staff are all very nice and helpful. If I could go 3 1/2 stars I would. The walls are paper thin so you can hear everything your neighbors are saying (or screaming) and the roads around the hotel are loud. The first room I was in smelled like body odor. The next room was...

Very nice hotel with friendly staff. The rooms were clean and the breakfast was very good, as far as hotel breakfast goes. Perfect location in the city with great views of the boats. The weather wasn't great while we were there but you could easily walk to many attractions and restaurants from the hotel.
