Property very close to FSU. Front desk staff was very friendly and accommodating. The rooms were well-maintained and very clean. Nice that they had water out throughout the day. The room was very functional with updated furniture and bathroom accommodations.

Checked in late, and the young man at the desk was courteous. The hotel was easy to find, and their lobby clean. The room was large, and nicely decorated. In this extended stay category, they have done a good job in addressing the needs of the traveler. Great breakfast! They have all your bases covered, and FANTASTIC coffee!. Great scrambled... More

After checking in I was then informed of the hidden fee to park in the open lot of the hotel per day. When questioned the desk person was told it's on the web site and we charge the fee to all. What good is a web site if you call in your for a room. I have stayed at a... More

The hotel is lovely. The room is clean and spacious. There is some insane nightclub nearby with music that is so loud the windows on our 5th floor room rattled until midnight. The thumping base made my heart hurt. Note to Manager - you folks need to take legal action against this club. We will never stay here again if... More

Stayed here for a FSU football game. The hotel appears to be recently renovated and our guest room was great. Very clean and well laid out. Full size fridge was a pleasant surprise and comfortable bed. Plenty of room for luggage so you don't have to keep moving it around to get something out. Nice work area and no problems... More

This place is the typical and well run Mariott Residence Inn, but is sits right beside a night club. We were here on Friday and to call it noise, was not doing it justice. The bass was so loud that even putting on headphones to Netflix and chill was impossible, as the bass had a big punch. We called down... More

We stayed here while my son was visiting FSU. The front desk is not what I would call overly friendly. The room was spacious. The full kitchen was great for an extended stay. The pool and facilities were well maintained. The breakfast in the morning was great. Lots of choices and the breakfast staff were courteous, friendly and accomodating. It... More

We have stayed here before and not had so many issues first issue was the door is a pain to get into the next was the air-conditioner sounded like it was going to fall apart several loud distracting noises outside not necessarily the hotels fault but definitely you will not be staying near the pool side (wasn't swimmers).

The hotel advertises that there are eating establishments within walking distance nearby. I arrived with no car and was given a map. The map was not correct; two places were closed (one for good it appeared) and the third was a 90 decibel sports bar with terrible bar food only. Other places are open only for breakfast and lunch.

Stayed here for business. Enjoyed nearby restaurants that you can walk too. Also, close to campus, which makes for a nice walk/jog away from traffic. Room was very spacious and clean. Lobby area was nice and spacious, as well. Complimentary breakfast and comfy beds! I would stay here again!
