We stayed for two three weeks periods with a week in between. We couldn't get the type of room we wanted for the second stay. The location is ideal, especially if you like Chick-Fil-A and Bob Evans. The hotel is normally Marriott clean but a number of the appliances were working marginally. We reported them but we don't like people... More

Managers on all shifts were very friendly and always went the extra mile. In fact, all of the staff were great. Nice rooms, good free breakfast service. Convenient location; however, rooms on freeway side are a bit noisy. Really enjoyed the snack nights.
