the barking dogs that people have there. One woman had 4 dogs. One I can see, 4 is excessive. None should be barking in the parking lot picnic area at 5/6 am. I know you are a pet-friendly hotel, but too often the dog owners would take their barking dogs out at 5am and wake up a good portion of...

We stayed here during a very difficult time in our lives as we were in town for a funeral. We had booked a one bedroom suite but when we arrived they upgraded us to the two bedroom suite. Then the lovely Racheal asked if we were there for business or pleasure - we explained we were there for a funeral...

Set in a great location near restaurants and a mall, this Residence Inn has the potential to be a great place to stay. Unfortunately, it desperately needs to be refurbished. As soon as you enter the main lobby, you can smell the decay and see how the place has run down. This continues throughout the property and is particularly bad...

Stayed a few nights here during high season before a cruise. Booked a two bedroom unit as we were traveling with another couple. Hotel seems as though it is an older property, however they seem to be trying to keep it fresh and appealing. Pool was inviting. Breakfast was great with a good variety of choices. Hotel staff were pleasant...

We stayed here one night before we flew home and it met our needs. The room & the bed were comfortable, the hotel staff was very helpful and the breakfast was good.

I usually love to stay at any Marriott but this trip I stayed at two that were just beat up and kind of ratty on this trip. This is one of them. It needs a paint job, the drapes are stained, the coffee pot was cracked. Not big things but items that a Marriott doesn't ever have. It surprised me...

The elevator was not very faithful and in need of repair. The red couch in our room was worn and uncomfortable as was the queen size bed. The sink and toilet were very low. I requested a newspaper and only received it once out of 10 days. A request to order more newspapers was denied from upper management. Many people...
