Worst hotel stay we’ve EVER been to So overpriced for what it is, which is a dump So disappointed

Currently waiting in the bar for over 25 minutes just for a shot Bartender disappeared forever to who knows where All the patrons food got cold waiting for her to get back, then everyone got mad and closed out their tabs and we had to wait for all of it for a shot! 2 other workers wouldn’t help her Left her to take on everything while they walked around and said they can’t get drinks or touch her drawer Took almost an hour for her to get us a shot, then she over charged! The room is so dirty The thermostat switch is literally covered in dirt Terrible experience Worst stay of our lives I wish there was some sort of manager this could reach

This is going to be a difficult review to write Honestly, an experience at an Irish Bar/Hotel on St Patrick’s day may not be the best time to go and review a place But then, if there is a day to pull out all the stops, this is the day

So, I guess we’ll start the good The Band was amazing Really enjoyed them A good choice by the HotelThe Staff was doing really well at directing and managing crowds and were friendly enough Their system was a bit like a cafeteria (more on that later) You lined up and ordered and got a tent and somebody brought you food Ok, real simple, and not really a big dealI ordered the $16 corned beef and $11 Reuben Rolls/Irish Egg Rolls 27 Bucks might be rich on a normal day, but it’s Saint Patrick Day, so I paid, added a tip (which seems silly given the Cafeteria-style) But I am open to new experiences!I sat down with my Tent After a short time I noticed a busboy walking around with food in his hands He passed the table with the clearly displayed tent number 3-4 times I eventually waved him down Maybe I tipped too much and too soon?Disappointment is not a strong enough word for what I received This was a joke An insultI took pictures because I was shocked at the amounts provided I get that supply chain problems and costs are going up but sweet lord The potatoes were scooped, the peas and carrots tasted frozen It felt like a cafeteria meal I don’t know how else to describe the experience except awful Which is a shame, because ti’s a really nice looking place and the staff was nice enoughMaybe I’ll go back again When I give a review this disappointing I like to assume it’s a fluke It’s quite the drive for me though, so it may be some time

I’m leaving another review because I enjoy this place so much The barkeep checked me in immediately and was super friendly My room was enormous, as was the bathroom

The general manager was also very friendly and outgoing I love the pubWaukesha has a cool little downtown with interesting shops

JENNIFER SCHEIDT, Independent L’BRI Consultant

My family and I used the banquet room recently at the Clarke Hotel for a Celebration of Life for our loved one I wanted to share what an amazing event it turned out to be Our dedicated server Teresa was absolutely wonderful

Working with Heather throughout the process of coordinating was very easy The accommodations for the event were great And some of our out-of-town guests booked rooms at the hotel as it was very convenient We had looked for a reasonable and convenient place to host this event and in the end this ended up being the perfect spot They can accommodate up to 80 people in this room I was told Thank you so much! We will cherish the memory of this event

Amazing place to relax and enjoy comfortable rooms with an excellent dining experience located within this fine establishmentThe staff goes above and beyond to ensure their visitors are bestowed with the best energy possible, I will continue to visit The Delafield Hotel in the future for years to comeJacuzzi rooms are awesome as well, unwind with hot jets and the comfort of the spacious quarters

Charles McGinnis

Not your ordinary hotel Wonderful accommodations Very nice sized rooms

You won’t trip over your luggage in this room Bed is very, very comfortable Bathroom is a real bathroom – you don’t have to climb in the tub to shut the door to the bathroom The shower should have a timer on it as it is too much fun Two TV’s; one in the sitting area; the other faces the bed On site restaurant completes the package Close enough to “downtown” that you can walk anywhere Very quiet Only things hotel could consider – more/better lighting in bathroom for applying makeup (wife’s suggestion) and USB outlets for charging laptops, phones, etc (husband’s suggestion)

Charlotte Nimmer

My husband and I stayed at The Delafield hotel this March for my birthday When we checked in and went up to our room, we entered into a freezing cold room where the thermostat read 59 degrees The room itself was also probably the worst room in the entire hotel, it was small and very claustrophobic feeling, with only one tiny window

We called the front desk, who told us to give it time, it’s a new system No thank you, we’d like to go to bed and not freeze for the rest of the night As a side note, we had been warned by my sister and husband about this exact situation, which had been their experience in January They were given a chilly room and told to wait it out We requested a new room, and when we walked into this one, it was only slightly warmer than the first The hallway leading to the room was warmer than the room itself This was totally unacceptable for what we paid for an upscale hotel I went down once more and said that we needed a new room The concierge put us in what he said was an “upgrade”, which meant a double king room (2 separate king beds) At this point we just wanted a warm, inhabitable room and would settle with it The room was set at 72 degrees, which was ok but there were massive cold drafts coming through the 2 poorly insulated windows After all this running around and changing floors and rooms, we were completely annoyed and not very happy with our situation, especially as this was my birthday and we had to waste our time on something that should be a given at any hotel Unfortunately, this was not the end to our disappointment The next morning, I woke up with itchy red bite marks on my leg The hotel manager addressed this very quickly and seriously once informed, and immediately had the room and surrounding rooms checked by pest control Thankfully there were no bugs found, so I can only surmise that this was just an unlucky fluke for me The manager also spoke with us personally and apologized for our not up to standard stay, and she graciously gave us a full refund for our troubles I greatly appreciate her management of the situation, I hope that we can give The Delafield Hotel another try again in the future, as it is one of the few lovely hotels in the Milwaukee area

Unfortunately when I entered my room I noticed the bathroom had a few dead bugs on the floor The shower had hair on the walls as well as in each corner of the tub The water pressure was so low, it seemed to be a plumbing issue

Called the front desk to make them aware that I had to clean the bathroom myself so my child could shower They did offer us another room, but no compensation for poor conditions The new room was also not that clean Again, the shower had clumps of hair on the walls Terrible cleaning services They do have a laundry room, which is a plus But it was absolutely filthy I don’t think the floor has been cleared in monthsThe whirlpool was out of service, which was one of the main reasons we booked with this hotel To top it off, you have to call 24 hrs in advance to receive any sort of house keeping services They do not willing empty garbage, replace toilet paper, provide fresh towels, etc The cost per room isn’t cheap, you would think they would provide some sort of cleaning services Especially since I was there from Thursday through Monday I would not be willing to return

Helen Edwards

The hotel was clean and nicely styled though there was something inexplicable that still said “economy” about it The staff was so lovely and helpful I am a woman and I traveled solo and always felt safe at the hotel

The room was very clean and nicely decorated with lots of lighting options which made me feel like home It was quiet, smoke free and convenient to Milwaukee which was perfect for me I highly recommend!!

Tony Roblero

The hotel itself is decent The aesthetics are cool however when you walk in it instantly reeks of high school boy locker room It’s as if someone was nervously trying to cover up body odor with the smell of cheap perfume

Pillows had coffee stains from previous stays And there were stains on the duvet Now as far as the front desk I can honestly say they’re just about useless I called down to the front desk to have paper and pen sent and received nothing And then when I extend my stay I am locked out of my room at six in the morning to only be told by Timothy the front desk boy that he can’t find my reservation and that he will not help me if I continue to be rude and that he is new I was however more than direct to what I needed to be done All in all this hotel fell extremely short for the price that was paid Oh and don’t even waste your time at the hotels restaurant You’re better off going to McDonald’s

Jesse Courchaine

Beautiful modern hotel with a comfortable bed and quiet room Decently priced for the area Overnight parking is charged $10 even though it’s in the same free lot as Cheesecake Factory

Cleaning service woke us up at 9AM, there wasn’t a do-not-disturb sign we could put on the door and wanted to sleep in There is a mini-fridge but no microwave There is soda, water and snacks for sale at the front desk but they are not refrigerated Overall, we would stay here again, just a few minor issues!

Vincent Gaines

The Renaissance hotel is beautifully finished The lobby is nice Rooms are modern and tastefully furnished

The prove is high for this area, but less than many other big city hotels This is a Marriot member hotel so all the usual Marriott peeks are here I had a fine suite on the 5th floor Quiet, king bed room with living and dining space My room faces the east so I saw a lovely sunrise several days

Had a King room Small but very efficient Lots ot nooks and hooks to put stuff

The lobby has a chic multi-use feel like a pool table The breakfast was standard for a hotel Thought it was a very cool approach to an economy-grade hotel Cheap, hip and efficientThis was my first stay at a Tru sub-brand for Hilton My only major complaint is the walls are very thin I heard conversations through the wall from the room next to me On the other side I could hear when the guests were walking Kind of a huge issue when you are staying in a hotel room

I would not normally pick Doubletree as a family hotel but in this case it was excellent We stayed on a Wednesday and had a great experience The desk staff was very friendly and accommodating to my young family

Gave the children cookies and warmly wished us a great stay The breakfast in the morning was limited but was delicious The kids had a great time in the pool, it is large and never gets above 3’6″ Most importantly the rooms were very clean I travel frequently and this is one of the cleanest rooms I have been in especially since there is a staffing shortage at the time I write this I cannot say enough about how well cared for this hotel is

Houa Vue

This review is just for customer service, I haven’t even booked yet, the first time I called, I tried getting a connecting room with my sister, and the gentleman over the phone was super nice and helpful and I don’t remember his name, but was willing to help us get a connecting room My sister booked already and actually needed her suite, as I was told the suites don’t have a connecting room, which is totally fine Then I called back and I think it’s Greg or Craig, I apologize as I didn’t catch your name and I hope I’m close, but he is amazing! I just called him to see if he had any rooms next to my sisters suite as she was on the first floor, mind you I already booked through a 3rd party site just like my sister

I was thinking if I got a Suite, I would be next to her room, I wanted a room next to hers He said if I payed already, just keep my suite and he could put me just one floor above hers to keep us closer He also said if I wanted a room next to her suite he could book me in a double queen I had to give up my suite, but a double queen also works for my family and I I was able to cancel my booking I made online as he booked me over the phone right away for the double queen next to my sister’s suite, and sent me a confirmation right away!!!!! He is awesome, super informative and super helpful! Thank you! I’m excited for my stay and look forward to it!!!!! Lol my sister doesn’t even know I’m going to be her neighbor tomorrow, and that is so convenient and it will be nice for the kids as well!! Thank you so much for fast, informative and professional customer service! When booking into hotels that’s the first quality I look for, is the front desk/ customer service! I’m so happy and cannot wait for tomorrow!

Blair Settle

Had to stay here for a baseball tournament we were playing in Rooms were ok, hot tub wasn’t working, in our room fee we paid for breakfast and got coupons and the lady that was working the breakfast area was very pushy about those coupons Breakfast price seems high for quality of food considering most hotels do similar for free

Also restaurant/bar in hotel was closed on a weekend Being from another state and staying for a tournament the convenience of having a restaurant on site was something we looked forward to but we had to go elsewhere Only stayed one night and left for a different hotel in area that was a little cheaper with better options

We stayed for several days/nights in room 123 and were very happy with our stay The newly decorated lobby is stunning and the front desk staff are very friendly and very helpful We enjoyed the free coffee, hot cocoa and tea you can get 24/7 in the lobby

The restaurant served very good food, especially the Tomato Bisque soup which was served with cheese bread which was divine! The waitress was excellent, friendly and very helpful with any questions we had Everyone there made us feel right at home The pool was nice and the hot tub much enjoyed as well Our room was clean and had everything we needed Bed was very comfortable with several pillows to choose from for just the right nights sleep! We will definitely be returning to this hotel again My only suggestion would be to have some rooms be absolutely pet free for those with pet allergies as I believe all the rooms are pet friendly Thank you for a great stay John & Sharon C

We were there for a wedding, we had to switch our room from a king to a double queen bed and they were very accommodating Clean rooms, nice facility I’m giving it 4 stars because the bride did not have the best customer service when trying to accommodate her out of town guests

They told her they were too full to accommodate her elderly pastor that drove over 2 hours to officiate their wedding Book very very early if you’re planning on staying there!

Bill Johnson

I had a great experience Check in process was great and I was recognized as a Diamond member No mention of a room upgrade

Bottled water was provided in the room Room was nice and clean Very modern Plenty of plugs and USB ports Room had a coffee maker Bathroom had regular size bath towels Shower water pressure was fair No charge for parking Ordered breakfast in the morning A little overpriced ($14 for scrambled eggs and sausage links) A free continental breakfast was also available Overall experience was excellent

It’s rare I have nothing negative to say about a hotel stay, but our 3 night stay at Avid was perfect Great value for the money The hotel is newer and the rooms were clean, nice large TV

Grab and go breakfast included in the morning that was always fully stocked with a good variety of choices Fresh coffee, tea, and water available all day All the staff we encountered was super nice You don’t get housekeeping everyday, but that’s pretty normal now They did come change out trash and swap out the towels right away when we requested it Good location with stores and restaurants nearby I would give more than 5 stars if I could!

Char Custom

The staff are great and rooms are clean but there are design flaws that make it hard to sleep here The rooms have mirrors that reflect bright bathroom lights onto the bed which are motion activated and cannot be turned on or off The doors are also very heavy and slam, no matter how hard you try to resist them slamming, waking everyone in the surrounding rooms

The temperature controls also drift and even when we kept air-conditioning on all night at 66 it would climb ten degrees after a few hours and you would boil in the bedThe TV was amazing though

Andy Earle

I was in town for a funeral and this hotel was the closest to my friend’s house It was convenient and close to shopping and local restaurants The room was clean and efficient, as it seemed to be a toned down version of your standard room, (e

g, no stationary, local directory, etc)The breakfast was decent enough for a free breakfast Jimmy Dean sausage sandwiches are kind of gross and were the only real savory option givenOther than the breakfast, it was a good stay The staff was cool and the price is what I expected to spend on a hotel off the interstate

Lucas Delle Chiaie

This hotel is absolutely fantastic and I loved every bit of it, the staff were friendly and the location is great, especially right off the highway This is a pretty luxurious hotel for it not being overpriced The only reason I didn’t give 5 stars is because the rooms do not have a microwave, which in my opinion is a pretty important appliance to have especially in a hotel and longer stays

But besides no microwave, this hotel was great and will definitely be returning if we ever need a hotel

Tuesday Cole

Not what I really expected from a Holiday Inn Guest services was great upon checking in Beautiful internal and nice restaurant attached

But the hotel doesn’t have breakfast like the other hotels you have to charge to the room or pay separately for breakfast which you are not told this Coffee is not fresh And can’t locate front desk staff Also price gauged the room because the fair event Wouldn’t take Corp account

Michael Nagel

Frown upon the no breakfast option They don’t even offer simple snack bars to compliment their coffee They offer zero milk options

This feels like a subpar provision for their pricingFriendly service The rooms were nice

Stayed here for a business trip for 4 days Very nice rooms and clean hotel Front desk and the dinner bar area staff were all excellent! Continental Breakfast was included for my business stay and was exactly the same every day, but, the food was good

I had an issue with the shower leaking water and there wasn’t enough water pressure to shower and they fixed it right the 1st time The maintenance staff even cleaned up after themselves The handicap accessible rooms are very accessible They have great safety bars in the shower along with a nice bench seat that folds down and is very secure For a bath you can secure the bench back up just as easily The room has enough room to move around in a small to medium wheelchairThe pool also has a jacuzzi next to it, but it has way too much chlorine it, burning my eyes and was just too strong to stay in Pool was nicely located next to the exercise room Exercise room was a small one, but happy they had one to exercise inFood for dinner was very good and ate here everynight during my stayWill stay here again if it’s for business or pleasure

James Mika

Excellent stay at the Milwaukee Marriott West We were only in town for the night but we’re able to book online prior and get a aaa discount Nice clean room, nothing too fancy but lots of room to spread out

Shower leaved a little to be desired but overall a decent hotel roomEnded up snowing us in at the hotel so we had dinner and breakfast at the BLVD restaurant attached to the lobby Excellent service from Shelly as our waitress for both dinner and breakfast Tasty cocktails and a perfectly cooked steak made dinner a great experience The breakfast buffet was fine and a great value but we would have preferred to order off the menu if we had been able Overall great experience at this hotel bar/restaurantPool and hottub were small but nice It was very cool it opens at 6am as we were able to jump in with a coffee and relax in the jets Natural light from the large row of windows was nice and made it a perfect start to the dayThanks Milwaukee Marriott West, would definitely stay again if we are in the area!

Heather Bolan

We recently stayed here for a wedding The ballroom was a really great venue However, there was a mosquito issue, with mosquitoes in the lobby for both days we were there and really bad right outside of the entrance

Room service never came to clean our room the two days we were here… Our shower was not cleaned and we had an empty body wash container in the shower- given the size of the bottles it was not checked for a long time People in our group also reported not having any soap/shampoo in their shower… overall beautiful hotel but enough “little things” that weren’t so great easy adjustments for the future

Purchased two day passes The bar is not open during the week A security man directed us to walk through the hotel to purchase drinks from the restaurant

Then to follow up the next time saying we can’t walk through the hotel We have to enter outside during a pandemic while wet from a water park to purchase drinks to bring back through ? Are you serious? 40$ Is already over priced for the small amenities that were open The hot tub outside portion is closed The cyclone was closed The bar is closed The front desk is closed There is a huge line for check in due to there is only one employee in the arcade taking care of everything The bar tender at the restaurant was very nice and accommodating However the man who claims to be security but wouldn’t even help the poor girl in arcade is terrible ! Won’t be back

This hotel is very nice and appears clean However, the service here is not good We stayed 4 nights and didn’t use the water park at all

I read in an earlier response on a review that they don’t do housekeeping services for the room unless you are staying 4 nights or more That would be fine if you could at least get the necessities taken care of I called for fresh towels twice, on different days and never got them Had to send my husband for toilet paper as they didn’t even replenish that Family in another room took their own trash out I get the “due to covid” excuse for reducing housekeeping services, but they shouldn’t be completely eliminated, which is honestly how it seemed I even asked the housekeeping one day for towels and while one of them were friendly and explained that I needed to call down to the front, the other housekeeper butted in and stated “we aren’t doing towels today, we are trying to clean” as she was furiously mopping the floor in the room across the hallIt wasn’t all bad Michael in the dining room has a great sense of humor and was awesome to give a hard (jokingly) time to The bartender that was down there last night, 6/19/22, was awesome I unfortunately didn’t catch his name However he was right on top of refills and foodOverall it was a so so experience We check out of the hotel today so at least I’ll be able to get fresh towels when I get back homeImprove on housekeeping services and friendliness of your staff and this would be a place I’d probably return And honestly, for guests staying 4 nights and paying the cost of this room, they should be able to get their room necessities replenished at least every other day Change the trash and towels, refill the toilet paper I don’t care if the bed isn’t made although that is always a plusAnyway, that’s my two cents I wish this hotel lots of luck and getting quality staff to turn a lot of these negative experiences around

Our stay was amazing! We had great customer service The hotel staff was accommodating, helpful and friendly The manager, Juve, was attentive and took the time to talk with us

We had drinks in the water park with Ken, who was Awesome!!!! He was personal and had a very chill vibe, which is necessary when so many kids are running and swimming around! We came down to Didi’s to order dinner and Kendra was super friendly, funny and quick to deliver drinks when she was busy We are a large group (3 adults, 5 kids) and we would absolutely come back here again!!!

The lodge is nicely located to enjoy Milwaukee without having to deal with much traffic or crowds The room was a decent basic hotel room and we took full advantage of the mini fridge and microwave Josh, Jennifer, and Michelle were all amazing during our stay

The bar was open for the first time in two years during our stay and there were definitely a few kinks, but Michelle was very sweet and accommodating I had the best sleep I’ve ever had in a hotel thanks to Jennifer And Josh was a delight to chat with anytime we were coming or going He did a fantastic job keeping a family friendly hotel an enjoyable stay for a couple’s getaway too!

I selected this hotel based on price and location, and was rewarded with a lovely stay The Wildwood Lodge is the kind of property other independent hotels aspire to be, and they do it without the resources of a national brand Even though this is not a luxury accommodation, it was clean, very comfortable, and met my needs as a basic business traveler

I would like to specifically recognize staff members Josh and Amanda for their outgoing and courteous manner They each left me feeling like whatever I needed would be handled with a smile Well done!

Thomas Olson

So the check in was great and the staff to us seemed polite and nice, the breakfast was a typical continental hotel breakfast, but here is the doozy! The place is looking pretty rundown and needs a good maintenance team, the noise from outside was pretty loud, and the room was horribly cleaned It doesn’t seem like they did anything from the previous guests The toilet had dry urine on it, the bottom of the tub I would advise using flip flops in and I would HIGHLY RECOMMEND checking your bedding before going to bed

The first impression is a lasting one and I will not be back to this place again

I stayed here for 5 days and I enjoyed every bit of my stay! The staff are very friendly and had no issues checking in My room was very clean and my bed was comfortable I only have 2 issues one being the drink machines don’t offer card payments which I was told the hotel doesn’t own those so it’s out of their hands

Secondly this place would be perfect if they had a poolfor me that’s the thing that was lacking But if I’m in the area again I’ll happily choose this Comfort inn Also it’s in a great area for food heck Texas road house is basically in the same lot

We had stayed here 5 years prior (although I don’t recall if it was a Comfort Inn at that time) and chose this place again because of their great rates and easy, quick access to the interstate We drove down from Minnesota for a quick Twins-Brewers series so we were really just looking for a place to crash in the evenings I was impressed with the upgrades and improvements they’ve made since our last visit and how clean it was (and, the smell of cigarette smoke from way back then was completely gone!)

Very friendly staff We arrived two hours early and since our room was already cleaned we were able to check in The placed filled up in the evening but it was still quiet throughout the night We’ll stay here again for another baseball road trip

On a summer night in July the A/C is crucial for sleeping The air conditioner stopped working two minutes before midnight Without the A/C working properly it was hot and difficult to sleep, and I had to be up at 5 am the next morning

I tried to restart it, and it would work for some time but then shut off again I had it set on “fan” and the fan would stop working after 1 cycle This was extremely disruptive to my sleep It was frustrating that this had to happen on a very crucial night for me, as I was taking a licensure exam the following morningHowever, the check-in process was seamless and the staff was very nice The room was clean and modern I had no other issues outside of the malfunctioning A/C unit The bedding linen and bathroom was clean The room rate was a bit high for the area, and for a hotel without a pool or other luxury amenities

We travel to Milwaukee often by car and have stayed here multiple times It’s always a nice place to arrive to after a long trip They’ve got a nice evening reception with free drinks and snacks and a good hot breakfast with made to order omelettes

The breakfast options have been more limited due to covid the last couple times we stayed, hopefully the breakfast is now back to normal! When traveling with kids it’s great to have that separate bedroom and living room with pull out couch The pool is also quite large and always kept warm enough for comfortable swimming even during the winter The only complaint I have is that the refrigerator is quite tiny for a suites hotel that serves people who often stay a week or more

Donald Rudy

Everything about the stay was as advertised Although the weather was severe, everyone at the hotel was friendly and pleasant Nikki at the front desk always had a smile on her face and a good word whenever we passed

She’s a gem and management should take note The breakfast buffet was varied and delicious We didn’t really have a chance to take advantage of the Happy Hour, but we appreciate the gesture Everything in the room worked like it was supposed to We just came back from Eqypt and you’d be surprised what is considered 5-star there Overall, it was one of my better hotel experiences And for those of you not familiar with Milwaukee, its freeway convenient and easy to get to many attractions from its location

Tecia Marie

Gorgeous GORGEOUS place to stay!!I only give 4 stars on location, because it was a little difficult to find Being from out of town and trying to figure out how to find the entrance for parking and the hotel, was a struggle even with Google mapsI want to give high praise to the staff, who were there around the clock all weekend!Everyone was very friendly and made us feel very welcomed!Loved our stay here, definitely going back! 😊

Wish I could give it a 45 and thought about giving it a 4 as its a little bit of an older property with a few minor issuers, but they are working hard to maintain and improve it Case in point, they made some significant landscaping improvements on the day we checked in

What pushed this to a 5 and made this a very enjoyable three night stay for us was the excellent staff Everyone we interacted with was great but Grace was particularly helpful At least three times I reached out to her with special requests and she exceeded my expectations each time As an added bonus, she did so cheerfully and it was clear that she loved her job and truly wanted her guests to enjoy their stayOne quick example…my stomach was growling about 8 pm and I heard they had popcorn and warm cookies in the lobby Went down to find out that another guest had just cleaned them all out Grace three two more batches in, wrote down my room number, and called me when they were readyWe had two rooms…a standard suite and a 2-bedroom Both were nicely sized and had a nice set of amenities (well-stocked kitchen, etc)The location is also very good There are many shops and restaurants nearby If you are a walker or runner, there is a lovely neighborhood and a walking path just north of the propertyI highly recommend this property for long term stays or families like ours that enjoy a spacious accommodation

David Bergdorf

This was by far the worst experience I have ever had by a Marriott They don’t follow Marriott guidelines and the rooms are not functional (TV didn’t work, and batteries in the remote didn’t turn it on) followed by the front desk agent calling their credit card machine “retarded” and managed to charge a card multiple times before the bank stopped letting it happen, and she blamed the customer for not allowing the multiple charges to go through

This is NOT Marriott standards and as a traveler in the hospitality industry, if this is acceptable for Marriott to allow, I would recommend my clients use another property who’s more professional

Tyrone Durst (TD Power)

Giving this place a 5 stars not for luxery but because the people working there smiled and were pros We dwelled there for 3 weeks Kitchenette in the room was functional with good appliances

Gym gave my child and I some exercise during cold days They have a pool but but its closed during winter There are activities, stores, bars and restaurants very near to this hotel
