This hotel DOES NOT deserve a Marriott brand. 1) The room smelled strongly of bad air freshener, 2) the room felt well-used, including bad touch up paint. 3) the breakfast consisted of DRIED OUT “eggs” and sausage and very bizarrely, the person “running the breakfast “ appeared to be in the process of making breakfast for *a hotel worker* who waited for his breakfast in the back room... OTHER HOTEL WORKERS were also getting breakfast from the customer breakfast area.
We chose this hotel (at DOUBLE THE PRICE) so that we could have a more luxurious experience, but, as you can see from the above we WISHED WE WOULD HAVE STAY AT THE CHEAPER competitor.
I have gladly stayed at Marriott hotels for many years, but this experience was horrible.
The check in was very nice and friendly. The room was old and shabby. This is very common in many Marriott properties. It did have a very good price and a few restaurants nearby to walk too. Also it had a decent free breakfast with a friendly staff. This was a no smoking room but the smell of illegal substances and noise made it impossible to sleep. The bathroom was very small and very outdated. the furniture just felt dirty. The maid was very nice however. Do not save the money choose another hotel. When all of the failures were brought to the attention of management they seem disinterested.
