Jay the front desk clerk and Norris the helper,were the kindest, most knowledgeable, helpful gentlemen we’ve ever had the pleasure of meeting as hotel employees! They made us feel more like family than hotel guests 🙂 We had missed our flight and the hotel was convenient to the Sanford Airport Very clean and comfortable, nice clean pool And the hot & cold breakfast was another great plus for a great stay! The next mornings desk clerk

well, we had to get to the airport, and didn’t have time to keep waiting for her to come back to the front desk, so I just laid the room keys over the desk and left But other than that, we’d give it a 💯👍

Carli Clark

We didn’t plan our post cruise plans very well but Jay at the front desk was more than accommodating and helped us with an early check in m, plus a coupon for a free appetizer at a local restaurant The room was very clean and comfortable The entire staff worked hard to keep every bit of the hotel clean

They even helped us with a later check out time when our out going flight wasn’t until 5 and had a free airport shuttle to top it off In a time of increasingly lacking customer service This Comfort Inn and Suites delivered!

Decent hotel, but it is showing its age The wall paper in the hallways, even by the elevators on the first floor is coming off My run was fine, but again, it is showing age

The shower surround was crackedIt was a comfortable and decent stay, but the details of maintenance are lackingI unfortunately did not get to try the continental breakfast since we had a fire alarm, but that’s not the hotel’s faultOverall a comfortable stay that was having on maintenance

I am beyond irate! You get zero privacy at this hotel I was just down in the lobby at 10:20 Am and purchased Emergency Vitamin C and Aspirin as I’m not feeling well at all, and also have high blood pressure I also elected to stay an additional night this morning

The checkout here is 12pm, but at 10:30 AM the housekeeping lady knocked twice and within 3 seconds walked in as I was exasperating and yelling, ” I’m in here!” I called down to the front desk and she said she would take care if it I explained to her I could’ve been undressed or engaged in an intimate situation, totally unacceptable Then, believe it or not, at 12:09, even worse, 2 housekeepers open my door without knocking or acknowledging their presence I have lost it at this point, called down to front desk, yelling She comes up and the housekeeper tried to say they didn’t do that Unbelievable! And, now I’ve gone from feeling bad to horrible, my blood pressure is out the roof, I will not be comfortable the rest of my stay The first thing I would have done to remotely help curb the situation would be to offer a discounted rate, and at this point the whole night should’ve been comped I’ve never been so unimpressed They are very lucky, had I been unclothed either of those times, there could have been a potential civil case other hands Stay somewhere else!

Latosha Jackson

I have to say the staff here is awesome!!!! One in particular stood out from all the rest, Imran was very helpful and welcoming, I have never made a reservation and had a staff member go above and beyond to accommodate like this my daughter was traveling with her coach and I was so concerned about room placement he kept me updated about the reservation and most important my daughter said when she got there he greeted her by name , that made her feel comfortable due to it was her first time traveling without me she said it felt like homeThank you so much!!!❤ memorable moments ✨️

Cancelled KOA upcoming reservation in April that I had made in Oct 2022 Did not respond to emails and took two days to return my phone call Carla finally called me back and stated she would cancel my stay, issue me a refund (less $10 fee) and send an email confirming

KOA reservation was indeed cancelled, but a week later and still no credit nor an email Called several days with no answer or return phone call, voice mail messages left each time

Magda Iris Nieves Munoz

My experience was good, I didn’t stayed at the hotel or went to the bar Bathrooms were OK, not too dirty but could’ve been cleaner There was toilet paper which is always convenient

You have to be early (8am- 10 am) to get parking or you take your chances which we did We got there around 10am -11am and we still could go out down the river with our boat and could find parking We had fun! It’s a good atmosphere, people are friendly I would go again

Me and my husband have stayed at numerous [email protected]’s

all very lovelybut the Higgins House by far has been the most charming! Everything was beyond our expectationsfrom the lovely decor, wine, closeness to historic downtown Sanford and the comfortable feel of home all to the extraordinary breakfast and history behind the house itselfwe were just so pleased! Lisa is an amazing host who welcomes you with such graciousness that I would highly recommend this establishment!

Jay Bowen

Higgins House is a BEAUTIFUL Victorian B&B, rich with the history of Sanford and old Florida The owner is a direct descendant of the original owner of this manor on the Historic Registry The decor, the ambiance, and the history of this home make it a perfect place to rest and relax

We were fortunate to have a seating for brunch in what can only be described as a dining experience The chef prepared made to order omelets, or eggs, any way you preferred, and the accompanying offerings were all delicious The staff was there for every need, almost anticipating them and responding with kindness that was generous and welcomingThis is the perfect location to spend a relaxing Sunday morning, enjoying a Mimosa on the front porch with people from all over the county and country, that quickly become friends

Meghan Killingsworth

Our stay at the Higgins House was one to write home about! The space is beautiful, very well maintained and thought through in every detail We were greeted promptly upon arrival with cheese, fruit, nuts and wine, given a tour of the space and helpful information about the local restaurants and music venues Each room seemed to have its own character, all beautiful and in different ways

There is a small common space with a television, a giant porch overlooking one of downtown Sanford’s beautiful parks and a garden/outdoor area that makes you dream about hosting events– even if you haven’t figured out a reason to, yet The first host we met and the owner were both kind, helpful and willing to give us space to relax and enjoy the area I have to eat gluten free and so I often expect that I cannot enjoy the typical ‘breakfast’ part of a bed and breakfast Instead, upon booking, they asked about food allergies and then provided a beautiful, delicious breakfast including gluten free pancakes, a homemade blueberry syrup, berry salad, coffee and an assortment of breakfast meat choices They are knowledgeable about Sanford and more specifically about the Higgins family because the new owner is from the family herself 🙂 We so enjoyed our stay, our hosts, our room, our breakfast and the Sanford area I would recommend this to anyone looking for a unique, peaceful, thoughtful and walkable spot to see downtown Sanford and enjoy the history of the area

Beautiful, hip, historic hotel in downtown Deland Walkable to fun shops, galleries, restaurants King suite bed was super comfortable and the large claw-foot tub was perfect for a steamy bubble bath for two

Hemingway’s 442 hotel bar served creative cocktails with a speakeasy feel inside and delightful electric fire pit tables outside on patio I wish we had more time to explore Elizabeth’s eclectic vintage clothing shop located in lobby Thank you, sweet Roger for being so helpful checking us in and making me feel extra special for my birthday!

Joe Jones

We stayed about two weeks ago The room was comfortable and clean Some reviewers mentioned hot water issues, but we didn’t experience any

We also had no noise issues from the bar/restaurant on the first floor My only critique would be the room was very plain; some art would have been nice We would definitely stay again in the future

Sarah Mazzie

This is a neat little place There is a hotel, a bar, and a restaurant I have only visited the bar so far and both times were impressive

The bartenders are extremely knowledgeable This isn’t a place to go order a jack and coke And if that’s usually your thing, branch out and try something new The drinks are very well madeIt is handicap accessible however the inside bar is a bit narrow I personally think sitting at the bar talking with the bartender is part of the experience However, I’d that doesn’t work for you there is a spacious outside area that’s very clean and has a very relaxing vibe

I love the porch! I love the cats! I love the energy! They are charging way too much now $275 for 2 nights with a SCREAMING portable AC unit that gave both of us headaches and uneven sleep I love the no TV but a small fridge would be great! It’s bare minimum

Cleaning crew are great but running the vacuum through the hall at 9am was just bad Always great interactions with staff1st stay, LOVED it2nd stay, crooked bed and an RV style shower/toilet3rd and last stay, the AC unit and stiff springy bed made it really uncomfortable

Lucy Morningstar

Paid $210 per night for two nights since the only room available was the “king suite,” not that that was a problem; however when we got into our room we found five cockroaches, (four of them dead) The hot water does not work, the floor boards were loose and kept popping up, the food in the restaurant in the main lobby was horrendous, tasted like a teenager cooked hamburger helper (it was a $33 dish of what was supposed to be Lobster Ravioli) I was so hyped To go to the town because many people I know had rave reviews about it, but it was honestly one of the worst hotel experiences I’ve ever had


I had a reading with MIA Amazing I keep bringing all of my friends to her

Shadow work and being present to experience life 10/10 Are you in auto pilot or can you actually tell of your experiences Are you open to the universe or are you closed off with blockages? MIA is like a warm hug from a friend that pushes you to be your best self The truth isn’t always cute, rainbows, and sunshines but that does not mean it won’t enrich your life If you can’t take the heat then get out of the kitchen Thank you so much MIA My life and the lives of everyone that has a privilege to meet and speak with you is enhanced ten fold Till next time! ❤️

I would say when it came to booking this hotel I made the mistake of not realizing that it is not anywhere near the tourist areas and I had to drive quite a ways to get to the theme parks from here The hotel was a nice place it had very friendly staff, a very good free breakfast and free parking which is a win for me because I don’t believe in fees for parking My complaints for this place is 1

No daily housekeeping which I think is ridiculous 2 The dryer was running for an hour and my clothes were still wet 3 The elevator was slow and one day it was out of service completely 4 Breakfast service ends way too early on Mondays-Fridays like I am not a morning person and if I got nowhere to be I find it annoying to have to hustle down to the lobby before 9am to get my breakfast it would be nice if they had the service end at like 9:30 or 10 the entire week because that seems more reasonable Other than those 4 issues I had a good stay at this hotel, fair price got all the amenities I needed I saw they recently renovated this hotel so that is very nice to see

John Lesko

4th time staying here and still outstanding, fair pricing, clean rooms and appliances, bathroom was very clean and fully stocked As of 02/18/2022 the hotel still is not offering daily housekeeping service, but anything needed is just a phone call to the front desk away Large Breakfast buffet served daily, hotel pool is well maintained and complimented with nice landscaping

Will definitely be back next year!

Abdul Ishaq

Worst hotel I ever stayed in at this price point As soon as we got in our room we noticed that the sink in the bathroom was broken This was followed by a TV that did not work

We then tried to call the front desk but the phone just rang and rang no one answered We found a roach in the room the pool was dirty and equipment was rusted out The windows were filthy The ice machine on our floor did not work The rooms were run down Definitely skip this hotel and spend your money on something of better quality

God’s Love

I needed a little get away and I haven’t been to DeLand Fl for several years I looked at the hotels in the area and went with this Courtyard by Marriott I asked for a high floor and was given room 402 with a balcony

I like having a balcony and it cost me about $2000 more for two nights I was able to feel the heat of Florida and was able to see birds flying by from Hawks, Vultures, Ibis and even Sandhill Cranes from my bed The two problems with this balcony view was the many Fools riding motorcycles with LOUD music and bad mufflers They were not the only ones making noise People in pickups and some muscle cars also made A lot of street noise And the many people that smoked from the balconies I can’t stand smoke and Marriott really doesn’t want you to smoke on the balconies but some people will never care Highway 17 is a busy road that runs right in front of the Courtyard by Marriott in DeLand Fl The room I was in had a good A/C that after awhile would cycle and turn itself off A 48 inch TV with Sat TV which I would lose connection about three times over the weekend The TV had many channels The room in general was nice But there was a large stain on the carpet near the footstool The bathroom was big one one person or two The shower stall was a nice size but I at 6 foot one didn’t like the safety bar where it was for when I shampooed my hair I bumped my elbows on the top of it I used the shampoo the hotel gave you in a 1oz bottle and it did the job well I wonder how the other rooms in this hotel handled the outside noise from the LOUD vehicles that felt it was their right to tick-off others On Saturday I asked a front desk woman about a couple of restaurants and she loved one but not so much the other I went to the seafood restaurant she said was very good and enjoyed two lunches there over the weekend I don’t know what Marriott could do to lessen the noise of the fools outside But if you’re a light sleeper don’t get a balcony room face the parking lot or the side street

Carolee DeRollo-Whalen

I have been a Marriott Rewards member for years Always had great service Never have written a review

We came down to DeLand for a college visit This hotel has gone above and beyond! From looking for non down pillows to kindly switching rooms when a larger one became available Then when we switched rooms; we needed foam pillows again The poor guy at desk searched high and low and found us 3 ( it is 11 pm!) I cannot say enough Rooms are clean Pool area small But clean College 2 min walking distance away!!

Ryan Wagner

Stayed for 1 night and overall good experience No housekeeping was offered I didn’t ask why but undoubtedly they’d use the COVID excuse

Hotel bar wasn’t open at night which was disappointing No type of continental breakfast offered Only a block from downtown so plenty of eating and drinking establishments close by Nice hotel, just has some downfalls

One of my worst hotel experiences ever My room was dirty to the point my socks stuck to the floor No bath towels light fixtures broken, scalding hot water unbearable to shower

Arrived very late purchased food asked for a receipt I paid cash The young girl told me she couldn’t print out a receipt, I went back down! Next morning still could not get a receipt, asked about the scalding hot water, I took ownership of them not having hot water They did offer to move me rooms but I didn’t have the energy to clean another room I did not want a refund I did not want anything free All I wanted was a receipt for the food I paid for Manager told me I would have it under my door by 6 PM Still was not there was told I would have an email by 8:30 PM still did not get my receipt Keep in mind everything wrong with my room I wanted zero compensation I finally called corporate supposedly I’ll have the receipt tomorrow It shouldn’t take 36 hours and ask 20 times for a receipt Especially when I cleaned the room unable to shower, flickering lights, I had to go down and get towels I understand things happen All I wanted was a receipt!!!! If they were unable to get me the receipt the least they could’ve done was call me It’s sad because I didn’t want anything for my inconvenience I just wanted a receipt for what I paid for!!

So excited for the adventures and living the dream

We had a wonderful stay at this hotel! The staff are accommodating and politeThe room is spacious, comfy beds, huge shampoo/con/body wash pumps in the shower, mini fridge, coffeemaker, and a microwave and cappuccino machine are by the front deskBeautiful views, nice pool and jacuzzi, huge gym, outdoor couches, and a shaded walking trail just steps away! Plenty of restaurants and a Publix across the street

Shula’s was okay Slow service but food was good Nice patioWe will definitely come here again!

Tracey T. Rice

Nice hotel Clean rooms I am sensitive to light at night so I had to put a towel down to block the massive amounts from the hallway

No cover on the peephole, so that was bright as well Room darkening curtains did a good job There was one robe for my husband and I in the large bathroom They provided a small bottle of shampoo and conditioner, but one bar of soap for both hands and body Towels were fluffy and absorbent Did not make use of ironing board, iron or safe, but they had them Coffee maker uses round filter discs exclusive to the hotel The refrigerator kept food cool and did not freeze anything Adequate for a night Across a busy 4 lane divided road to many restaurants and a movie theater Front desk staff was friendly and accommodating Did not try the Shula’s restaurant located in the hotel

Melissa L

I had to travel with my dog So grateful for a pet friendly hotel Dog-friendly rooms have laminate flooring which is super helpful

Staff has been really helpful and kind The restaurant on site (Shula’s) is expensive but good The 3 issues I had is, due to covid there is limited room cleaning, the convenience store is very limited, and parking (although is plentiful) it’s a bit of trek Rooms are clean, quiet, and well organized Not the hotels fault but I4 was under construction and there was a long detour
