We had a great stay and would definitely recommend! This place has a nice “at home” feeling It was certainly not a hotel, which we weren’t expecting or wanting The bonus was that the price was WAY BETTER than getting a hotel room

Jess was super nice and responded to a couple questions we had within a short time; she coordinated our arrival time well when we arrived a little earlyEntrances were private There’s a nice private common area with a hot tub and a grill The unit we stayed in had a private screened in porch area that is shared with another unitEverything was very clean and welcomingEven the Florida lizards were polite and fun to hang out with; especially Paco, who I think may have been part of the service staff But he kindly joined me and enjoyed my banana for breakfast; he was great conversationalist!It would be a perfect place to book a couple units for a family/friend trip or for just a quiet getaway

Only issue I had was the guest They were obvious drug addicts They were loud

I had to go off on them because of how loud they were The property manager did what she could to Accommodate and even get rid of the guest She offered a discount for my next stay Overall the property itself was very beautiful and clean I have no problem staying there again Sometimes they can not help who books there no matter how much their screen guest

Stayed here for 2 nights (Nov 2018) during a month long road trip around Florida, out of the 22 different places we stayed in during the month I ranked this 10th overallThe property is located on a busy road which we couldn’t safely turn left across, so we had to drive past and then come back to it on the right hand side Parking is provided off road between the street and the property

It’s about a 20minute walk to ‘Pirate Republic’ stop of the ‘Water Taxi’, Stranahan House downtown is about a 35minute walkI was a bit concerned about the entry system as the blurb says no one is on site after 3pm; we were due to arrive around 5pm However, Cynthia sent me an email a couple of days prior to our arrival date with the code for the front door Cynthia was actually there when we arrived, but this was unfortunately due to their having been an RTA that morning right outside the property which had wiped out a pylon and had cut off all the power! The electricity was literally reconnected by the power co as we walked through the front doorThe rooms were clean and well appointed The kitchen was well equipped (only place we stayed with a full oven/stove), although the coffee maker didn’t work very well during our stay The bedrooms do appear small as the bed takes up nearly all the space, but it is after all just a place to lay your head for a night or so There was no TV in the bedroom, just one in the decently sized lounge/dining roomThere is a guest laundry facility which was most welcome after 10 days on the road, and there is also a nice outdoor area with a grill for all guests to useThis is a place I would recommend staying at if on a tighter budget!

Beautiful hotel!Exceptional breakfastHere is why I gave one star…Very poor customer service and communication in regards to housekeeping protocols

My husband and I stated the concerns to the front desk and there was no accomdation to our check out besides an apologyThe temperature in the room was not set to what was requested during bookingHousekeeping protocols were not communicated verbally or in an email during bookingWe were not made aware about a 24 hour request for housekeeping They presented us with a paper at check out… which in my opinion should be emailed or posted in the ACTUAL ROOM I have been to several other hotels during the pandemic and they have it posted in the room or communicated it to us during check in I think this is something that should be on the door or they have some type of communication to the guests to request the cleaning No where in this hotel room did I see a posting I did see a sign in the bathroom that if you left your towels on the floor they would be replace… so I assumed that housekeeping was a regular routine in this placeHow can someone place a request for a 24 hour housekeeping the room when we didn’t even check in 24 hours within when the clean up was needed????I was in town came to this hotel for a surgery I was having and returned to a hotel room that was not cleaned When I called the front desk there was music from the lounge blasting and the employee could barely hear me All she did was send two towelsI needed to be in a clean environment and my health was at riskUnfortunately I will not be recommending this place to my family and friends I am highly unsatisfied I did not get my moneys worth


Modern contemporary design in rooms and lobby areas Clean and new Great service

Perfect location for staying and shopping at the Sawgrass Mills mall It’s actually located in the parking lot of the mall, so parking is available and free Valet parking is available tooThe surrounding areas are well litThe furniture is clean and comfortable and the design is modern with clean lines and no clutter Large spacious bathrooms and a shower stall with sufficient elbow roomThere’s water and coffee available in the rooms; a snack shop and a bar in the lobby and a good buffet breakfast is available at minimal cost The restaurant seating area is spacious and clean and well attendedOf course, the many restaurants both inside and on the outside of the mall area are all available for you to enjoy dinnerNear to the hotel is a lovely outdoor walk area alongside the shops for enjoying an after dinner walk in a beautiful settingI would definitely stay here againA bit pricey but still affordable

Chris Dodorico

Gorgeous new modern property at Sawgrass Mills The design is sleek with beautiful finishes Check-in was very swift and polite

Room is nicely appointed The thermostat is a bit challenging – the room was 81 when we arrived but finally figured how to put it on Called maintenance and a very friendly gentleman arrived immediately to help Problem is the thermostat turns back off overnight so the room warmed again Rooftop bar is great with nice views and fun, calm vibe Overall construction is kinda cheap and you can hear a lot of noises on the floor Will definitely stay again!

AWFUL EXPERIENCEWe booked the King Bed room at the Las Olas B&B to ensure we get the most comfortable room If we are taking the time to write this review, it’s because we were very disappointed by the quality of the room and by the serviceFirst of, no breakfast was offered, even though the website clearly indicated it that it was included in the price

The place is called a Bed and Breakfast after all! Covid or not, they could think of another way to compensate for the situation, that’s what all other B&B and hotels are doingWe were also welcomed into a room smelling of must and humidity, evidently coming from the bathroom where we found mold Ventilation in the bathroom only worsened the smell and given its appearance, it clearly hadn’t been cleaned nor checked in agesThe big disappointment was also the King Bed (supposedly the best room they have) which was broken!! The springs at the bottom were completely messed up leaving a big whole at the bottom of aware mattress We have never encountered such a bad bed before, not even in lower grade hostels! The pillows were also old and not comfortableNot to mention that at our arrival, there were towels missing and no toilet paperwe had to call and wait for someone to come bring them to usWhat probably worsened the situation is that there was heavy rain when we were staying there which did not help with the humidity smell After two days, the smell in the room was no longer bearable We found ourselves having no other choice but to leave Las Olas B&B We explained the situation to the host and he promised he would refund the remaining 3 night we had booked (see email exchanges in photos)Three months later, despite numerous reminder emails, we still have not received the refund and we are no longer getting any responses to our emailsIn short, HORRIBLE rooms and TERRIBLE customer experience If you want to have a decent time, we do not recommend that you stay at Las Olas B&B

Dan was incredibly nice in trying to make my stay more comfortable but I was extremely dissatisfied with my experience here The building is very old, outdated and the walls are extremely thin I had trouble sleeping every night because of how loud all the neighbors were — the people staying above me consistently played music at 3 and 4 am

(Dan did ask them to keep it down and be more considerate) My room smelled of mildew and the bathroom smelled like a public restroom — I had to go out and buy candles to try to make it better I wish they could take some time to renovate the building and the rooms because it has a lot of potential to be cute I will not be staying here again


We lucked into a reservation here at the last minute for New Years Eve The accommodations were an excellent value for the money The guest house was easy to find and in a great location

Everybody was friendly, the facilities and pool were clean and well kept Not a place for rowdy kids or stuffy old folks Guests were mixed ages, genders, orientations and backgrounds, lending to a very “all-welcome” feeling

We have been here for three days so far and leaving tomorrow We have enjoyed staying here immensely Our room was so clean and we let housekeeping clean it each day

I like the fact you smell bleach in the bathroom It lets you know they actually clean it The staff here are always happy to help you except the maids They really aren’t socialable but that wasn’t anything to complain about The breakfast is very nice and very cleangood food as well This place went above and beyond my expectations We were in room 403

Savannah Sussman

I can’t give this hotel 5 stars for 2 reasons1) The water pressure in the showers 🚿 is far to weak2) There is no microwave in the rooms

I stay in same hotels, for weeks at a time, and a microwave is a definite plusThe staff in this hotel is EXEMPLARY!From the front desk to housekeeping to the person arranging 🥞 the breakfast 🥐 buffet, everyone is friendly, efficient and pleasantI’d rather drive the 30 miles to my location, than stay in a closer hotel😌

Leader1- LARRIO A. WALDEN (Captain)

Nice Friendly staff, clean room, good breakfast buffet

all you can eat But your car will get very dusty from all the construction going on next door And tree leafs falling on the windshield Otherwise, I like this property, will stay again and I do recommend this Holiday Inn Express & Suites However, they must stay steadfast, continuously striding in all categories to earn 5 Stars hotelNow, Breakfast dinning I rate 5 🌟 for cleanliness, food quality and quantity, temperature of the food and the good helpful attendant on duty therewho’s name is Trevor Very helpful and clean man

I have traveled many many places and was wowed by the Dalmar! they are awesome! first of all, my room was GORGEOUS huge stunning shower and view The staff was so kind and courteous, I loved the soap in my room it smelled wonderful and housekeeping dropped of a bag of soaps and lotions to my room for me to take home when I complimented them! talk about great service! I am stickler for cleanliness and the rooms were fresh, clean, and amazing I am super picky but was so impressed they are an amazing team, even the manager emailed me to ask how my stay was after departure

I didn’t have opportunity to try any of the food nor the pool but will definitely come back for another stay next time I am in town Hopefully having a chance to try some of the other amenities on property w

I just visited here for my boyfriends birthday I only stayed 1 night but I have no complaints on my visit My room was very clean

The weather was at 40 degrees, got a delicious hot chocolate from the bistro I forgot tooth paste and asked the front desk for some and to my surprise they actually had it They were extremely friendly and polite They only reason didn’t give it 5 stars is because the rooms have no microwaves

Sharon Miller

Mattress was extremely soft and needed a chiropractor after my stay No one should be asked to sleep on a mattress with absolutely no support whatsoever Pillows had absolutely no support whatsoever

Bathroom has no fan Room was not cleaned We were ignored Front desk has an attitude key card works when it wants to Hotel needs a makeover

Patrick Vial

Perfect location Close to the beach but not right on A1A where it’s hard to find hotels with parking Hotel has plenty of free parking

There’s a Denny’s right across the street and the hotel has their own Deli Shop I didn’t use the pool but it looked cozy and comfortable with plenty of sun The hotel was spotless Crew was always keeping it clean I like the balconies in the rooms overlooking the pool Very cozy tropical style

Great place to stay with family My kids had something to do everyday on the resort I love that we were able to also use the amenities of the nearby Wyndham resorts as well that was on the beach

I liked the pools and water slide for the kids Sitting by the pool was nice with evening live singers/bands The rooms was spacious and clean I enjoyed my stay immensely

Elizabeth Powers

I gave 4 stars for the rooms because they’re a bit outdated but extremely well maintained Service was outstanding from all departments The employees respect their duties and the visitors

Location was great also with every and anything close by I only gave it 4 stars because I had to commute to and from Miami at 45-60 minutes each way, but I knew that prior to booking my stay Overall, I’d definitely stay here again and would recommend to anyone wanting a comfortable and relaxing stay at a very well kept and friendly resort

Christina Sutton

Rooms were pretty spacious We had a two bedroom two bath which had a king size bed and double beds There was washer n dryer In the unit

The front desk was friendly and not pushy about buying a timeshare Great amenities, the slide, the gym, the activities center Only downsides were their happy hour wasn’t complimentary and the checkout is at 10am

Karen Spigler

We got a handicap room (did not ask for it) on the third floor with a view of the rooftop of the restaurant complete with all the mechanical doodads The rug was wet, the room was cold and damp and there was a strange gurgling noise that kept me up all night ( like being in an aquarium) I wanted to change rooms, but my husband was exhausted (we arrived really late) and was too tired to change and went straight to bed

When we checked out, the clerk asked how our stay was and I told her She apologized, gave me a cookie and a Starbucks certificate (actually she offered us breakfast, but we did not have time) She said the manager would call me to discuss our stay, but THAT NEVER HAPPENED Considering the room was a couple hundred bucks, you would think the room would have been better It was supposed to be a 4 star hotel, it was not In their reply: “We would have loved to know this when it happened so that we could have rectified the situation” You were told You chose not to contact us (left my phone number and name) Guess you had no intention of any reparation for a sub-par room

Natasha Patten

This hotel is one of a kind! With great attention to details, wonderful service with our room and restaurantMy partner and I booked for two night, but we ended up extending our stay! We enjoyed all of the accommodations, friendly services, and comfort we received Oh and the cookies are soooooo good!!! My partner could not get enough of those! Big shout out to Cece- who made our stay wonderful from checking us in, taking care of any discomfort we may or may not have felt, to being friendly and welcoming! Cece we appreciate you! When ever we went to the counter she ALWAYS greeted us with a smile

When we came down for breakfast or to go explore she greeted us with good morning! Your kindness in meeting our needs made our stay special She truly made our stay memorable! Thank you Cece for the hospitality you’ve shown! 🙂 we would like to also shout out Robert in the Restaurant, it was great being served by you! Your kindness and willingness to meet our needs was truly appreciated!


Prior to our arrival to the hotel, we received a phone call from the Front Office Manager, Ramy concerning our room He stated that there was a guest at the hotel that needed our room which was a handicapped accessible room Without hesitation I expressed to him yes! As long as we had a room I was truly grateful

Well because our willingness to switch rooms with the guest, our stay was upgraded as well as we were placed on the highest floor Our overall stay thus far has been truly blessedThe front desk, the restaurant, the hotel stay and the banquet staff have truly exemplified the level of professionalism and standards that the Hilton brand has to offer! I’m truly glad that our church, True Holiness Tabernacle of Prayer, chose to use the Doubletree by Hilton in Sunrise, FL for our Holy Convocations 2022!

This place is nicely located off the main street It is modern and the amenities are great to have The check process was effortless that it seems unreal, the facility is very clean and there is a pleasant fragrance that welcomes you as the automatic door opens

The staffs are hospitable and polite, always greeting and acknowledging you I liked the diversity of the staffs I loved the room, especially the shower Checking out was as easy as checking in, unfortunately all great experience has to come to an end I look forward to my next stay

Michael Jackson

This had to be the WORST Marriott I have ever had the misfortune to stay atFirst, when I arrived they had no re ord of my reservation even though I showed it to them through my email Then they realized they canceled it and had to give me another room

Of course it was right next door to the elevator and the a/c was stuck on 75 I called the front desk and they sent two repairmen to my room and one said ” oh that’s they way it works If I can’t change it you need to get another room” Why say you can change it but tell me first thats the way it works???The next day I was finally able to get a room in the afternoon with a balcony which is what I requested Unfortunately I made the mistake of leaving 2 of my own pillows along with my necklace on the other room I called the front desk and of course they didn’t find it or have anything turned in The necklace I could see but pillows???My main issue with this courtyard was their lack of empathy and their poor customer service Pretty much everyone I spoke to seemed preoccupied with something else and showed no concern whatsoever I chose this courtyard over my usual one in plantation just to save $20 and it was DEFINITELY NOT WORTH IT I would suggest you not visit this one until they get better management and start to hold their staff more accountable for how they treat their customers

Don’t forget to use ʜoᴛᴇʟʙᴏʟʟʏᴄᴏm when booking a resort This web site will compare thousands of booking websites and normally will have rates a lot cheaper than others! Thank me later on! This place is one of my favorites in this area

I’ve been staying here for a long time If you stay for a few days you won’t regret itI feel this is a hidden gem It’s a great upscale hotel Very attractive furnishings I found my room to be very clean with a very comfortable bed The shower is super huge with plenty of hot water! Little extra touches of classy shampoo and a makeup mirror I actually like the quiet location as well

Laurie Quinn

Very modern updated hotel with decent size rooms, very comfortable beds and beautiful bathroom, only wish it had a smart TV, and lighting is too white, almost florescent in the rooms The lighting is actually really bad The pool is heated and very nice

The restaurant here was very good with excellent lighting and ambience The food and service were outstanding Excellent salsa, & guacamole with delicious chips is highly recommended Large portions of everything!!

Mark Molin

I usually take negative reviews with a grain of salt because some people just tend to over complain when they think they’ve had a bad experience, but this truly is a bad experience The hotel is nice it’s clean, but there was one towel in my bathroom, you can only request maid service if you are staying three nights or more, and in an 11 floor hotel only one elevator is working… and they don’t expect the other elevator to be working for at least another week

The one elevator that is working only works intermittently I believe because you have to wait so long that the system just automatically resets and then the button doesn’t work again They don’t have complimentary coffee in the lobby The front desk staff wasn’t very warm and inviting at check-in and couldn’t even recommend any local restaurants to try I would think that for $300 per night I would at least get a complementary cup of coffee, a warm greeting, or more than one towel If none of these things matter to you then this is a hotel for you Otherwise buyer beware…

I have been coming here for a very long time If you stay for a few days you for sure won’t be disappointedAfter a nightmare experience with an AirBnb (never again) we came to the Westin Fort Lauderdale at 3 in the morning and were greeted by one of the most excellent customer service representatives we’ve ever had the pleasure of meeting, Nicole She made our check-in effortless, quick, and ensured that our stay here would be a fantastic one We had a car rental, so the location was extremely convenient (right off the highway) and several miles away from major boulevards and beaches The hotel is excellent, clean, welcoming, the staff are great and helpful The pool is refreshing and nice (although we wish it was heated), and the grounds are fantastic The only criticism I would have is that the pillows could be a bit firmer (or at least an option) and the pool should be heated Otherwise, the hotel is highly recommended, thanks again to Nicole!

Please be aware that this hotel is gradually being renovated You may not get a newly renovated room, and that makes a world of differenceThe first time we stayed here, it was great! The room looked fresh and was very clean

We decided to book a second time (for longer) based on that first experience, and it’s like we’re in a different hotel entirely this time The carpet is old and there are bare footprints all over it from the previous guests — no one had vacuumed the room when we arrived It’s dirty, outdated, and smells oddly perfume-y and damp There is what looks like a blood stain on one of the pillow cases and the couch is stained and faded It’s clear that the room we were assigned to this time isn’t one of the renovated onesThe only reason we are staying tonight is that we checked in very late after a long cross country flight Despite our reservation being non-refundable we will be moving to a new hotel tomorrow Yuck! Avoid this place unless you enjoy the thrill of not knowing what you’re paying for

First time staying at this particular hotel I loved it Even though it was 12 miles away from the convention center, I didn’t mind the drive because it is a world better than the hotels right by the convention center

I loved the location Staff was very nice and eager to assist with whatever you needed Exactly what you would expect from a Marriott property I will stay there again and hopefully Plantation Walk will be open Very nice!

I have stayed over 1,000 nights at a Marriott branded Hotel This Hotel is significantly below average compared to other Sheratons I stayed atLet me first start with a positives

The guy in the club lounge was super curious, responsive and wanted to help Excellent service mire commonly found in Asia or Latin America that the United States The lobby gets lots of natural light and it appears was remodeled not too long ago It’s got your standard breakfast area, a little bar and some conference rooms There’s a fountain outside and there’s plenty of parkingThe reason why I’m getting this two stars is because the rooms are just very old and kind of dirty For example, there is scum in mildew all over the bathroom Another example of the coffee table was scratched up Except for the mattress, it felt more like a old courtyard Marriott than a Sheraton The room is large as you would expect in a suite but again in bad need of updating The drapery seem like it came from the 1990s The shampoo and soap they give you is from big bottles of fixed to the shower wall There’s some hygiene risk there given I’m sure they don’t replace the whole bottle after every guestI have included photos so you can judge for yourselfThe AC unit was loud and didn’t respond to the thermostat very well I think I might have caught a head cold or something after two nights

Did a weekend staycation, this hotel is located in the heart of the upcoming area of Plantation Walk For that reason, make sure you get a parking pass because they do ticket cars There is security patrolling the area on a cart

Just a reminder parking isn’t free The staff were really nice and helpful The Sheraton Suites appears to be renovated from the outside and lobby area There are places were upgrades can occur such as the pool and hot tub area The room was nice but it has it quirks like turning the switch down to turn on the light, the noise the sink makes, the struggle opening the closet, and the movement of the refrigerator when you opened it They have a dining area where they serve breakfast, Starbucks, and a small bar Aside for a sign saying they have a breakfast buffet, if you don’t inquire about its most hush-hush There were not many people eating meals when I pass by in the morning or evening If there was a menu available in the room or during check-in, I’m sure they would have more people The hotel was reasonably priced but certain days the price fluctuates tremendously especially weekends and holidays

This hotel has the potential to be a nice hotel However, there are some issues that needs to be rectified During my 2 day stay my room did not have any hot water in the shower

I was told that the water only gets warm but the water didn’t even get warm It is obvious that the pool haven’t been cleaned in a very long time Plus the overall cleanliness of the hotel can be better Even though the rooms are decent and the hotel is in a good location The issues that I address tends to take away from the potential of the hotel

Woke up and wanted to take a shower; the water was cold You can imagine how that felt They serve “breakfast”

Came down and it was a few apples, crunch bar and a few pre made ham/sausage burgers No veggie options Pool was not functioning Jacuzzi was dysfunctional Why did I pay that much money for? Would’ve been better off at Marriott or Hilton Staff was nice and respectful, that’s why the two star

Glenn Witherspoon (Spoon)

The cold water pressure varying during the day The faucet usually there no cold water, and the water is to hot to wash your hands The shower water pressure is very weak

Above the shower head, there peeling paint, you can see the green mesh tape The bathroom door get stuck The carpet is sticky, need to be steam cleaned The lobby is really nice, and they have great parking The staff are nice and professional

This was a great hotel stay! We really enjoyed the beautiful 2 Queen suite which was very spacious It had huge TVs which was great for watching the NFL playoff games We enjoyed the rooftop bar and pool area, as we were here to celebrate a birthday

The front desk team were very accommodating especially Allen and Terrell Although we did not use valet service, the valet team very polite and engaging in conversation especially Rowan We’ll definitely be back!!

Sherray Utley

The whole experience was terrible I checked out early and was unable to even complete my stay there because the experience was just that horrible The hotel staff were not hospitable and not what I am accustomed to experiencing from the Marriott brand

The room smelled bad Our concerns about the smell were not adequately addressed The first night they stated they could only clean the room but they were unable to move us to a comparable room since they were at capacity for the night The next day the hotel staff said that they would need to do an assessment of the room before moving Ridiculous! They then say they still are unable to move us and offered to clean the room again, which I was not interested in then having to stay in the same room where they are spraying with tons of cleaning products, also while our luggage is still in the room The manager followed up later on that day Finally, the manager told us that they would move us to another room on the same floor The manager stated she would leave a note with the front desk staff However, the communication between the managers and the front staff was horrible Once we were packed and were ready to move to the different room the front desk staff acted as if they had no idea what we were referring to They said they had no comparable rooms available I asked to speak with the manager and they advised they already left for the night Eventually, they “magically” found us a comparable room, but it wasn’t on the same floor as they promised Actually, the new room was now on the lower third level close to the highway, where we can hear the highway traffic all night long I imagine this wouldn’t have been an issue if the hotel had double pane windows The next morning we speak to the manager of the hotel and he is condescending, ignores our concern, and makes tons of excuses instead of apologizing for the many inconveniences we experienced during our stay After that encounter, I checked out early I moved to a full service Marriott hotel in the area And the experience was night and day I received much better treatment after moving to another hotel This Courtyard location needs to ensure they are adequately cleaning their rooms, especially if they are a pet friendly hotel But most of all, they need to learn to treat their customers with respect As a Marriott Gold elite member I’ve never experienced this type of treatment and horrible customer service I would never recommend staying at this hotel

Eric Gotham

This has been a pleasant surprise  For the price, I was expecting something a little more aged but it looks brand new   Even though its new,  the staff really knows what they’re doing – all very pleasant, busy, kind, etc

  Rooms are clean and spacious with large windows and televisions  Modern lighting controls and plenty of charging ports The lobby is contemporary, yet inviting It has a convenient little “store” for snacks and drinks  The restaurant, coffee shop and bar on the lobby level are OK – kinda the only thing that’s missed the mark Dinner is far better than breakfast The food portions are small and quality is so so (it’s a hotel, I get it) The real bummer is they say it’s not part of the hotel, so you cannot charge your room for meals or drinks  Same with the roof top bar

Beware before staying here This was supposed to be an anniversary trip, but I am regretting it Has not been a comfortable stay at all

When we first got to the room I could tell it was an older building because it was quite dusty and immediately set off my allergies Still dealing with the swollen lymph nodes to to this date While our room was fairly sized, the furniture was old and in poor repair The dining table was ready to collapse at any moment, the bed was a full size, not queen, the hot tub was broken as was the gate to get to the pool area There are no rollaway beds which we asked for because the main bed was not big enough for two adults and the pullout blocked the doorway so you couldn’t get in or out of the bedroom, which is where the bathroom is located The sofa is broke down The breakfast left a lot lacking It was the same thing every morning and I laughed as other guests sneered when they were treated to the same breakfast items from days before The front desk let us know there were staffing shortages so I depended on my self to do my own housekeeping and bought my own kitchenware as I was missing a skillet that no one ever brought me The icing on the cake is being way overcharged twice for “incidentals” I had not incurred and then told the charges would be corrected in 7-10 days and we’re talking hundreds over the booking amount That’s no just a security and incidentals And it was way more than the 20 dollar a day charge they claimed The staff is cordial and they do a nice job with the reception, but the place seriously needs to be renovated I have stayed at several Residence Inns before, but after this stay I won’t be using to them anymore and most likely not Marriott either Quite disappointed in the quality and practices

Should be rated a max of 2-3stars, not 4 star rating Rooms are old & dated Needs updating

Air conditioning was too loud and is centrally controlled We could not adjust it as per front desk It woke us up a few times each nightOur room (#232) door didn’t lock unless you pull hard on your way out Door was unlocked after cleaning staff left It took 3 days for someone to come and do a temporary fix The maintenance person said it was a door frame problem

I stayed here for the first time with my family including my infant son I was very impressed with the cleanliness and upkeep of the hotel room, lobby, dining area, and surrounding areas The breakfast is complimentary and there are a lot of great choices

Also the staff was very helpful and very sweet I want to especially recognize Sarah who very kindly allowed my mom and I back into our room after checkout so we could wash up my baby who was fussing and crying We were all so grateful for her compassion and understanding I highly recommend this hotel and would definitely stay here again if I’m ever in the area!

William Knowles

The stay part was great Clean room comfortable beds and a very good breakfast Issue was paying

We set it up on our credit card but wanted to pay on our debit So they split it saying our debit was declinedwhich we have plenty of money So now after a long drive home we have to figure this out They said they called this morning before check out but failed to leave a voice-mail Will be back but need better communication The lady that check us in and the lady on later nights were super nice


I stay at a lot of Hamptons They’re all different quality wise As far as this hotel quality wise is concerned, it is fine

No issues, but nothing exceeding expectationsMy air conditioner didn’t work and a part needed to be ordered They had no other available rooms and I had a pretty restless night I’m giving 5 stars because the lovely lady working the desk that night automatically offered to take some money off the total I don’t tend to push for that because I understand things pop up they aren’t expecting, so was pleasantly surprised However, the next day they completely waived my entire stay!! I’ve never had that happened What amazing customer service! Props to the service/management team at this location Really impressed and thank you!

Far from the madding crowd A great quiet location with everything you could need for a quiet vacation within a 20 minute walk On site breakfast bar has a wide variety of delicious snacks and meals with pleasant attendants

Many local restaurants and bistros within a 10 minute saunter, although it does get crowded at normal feasting times! A wide variety of rooms to suit most peoples tastes, and the in room a/c is adequate for the climate Bathroom supplies were plentiful and housekeeping were always somewhere on hand for top ups or little extras A great little find

Maranda Jean

This is my go to spot for when I’m in town for work and the ladies at the front are so wonderful! Natasha always remembers me greets me with a smile as soon as I walk in I enjoy her conversation and look forward to my stays here because of her! The entire staff is so gracious and kind There is a nice little Starbucks and bar

Rooms are always clean and hotel is maintained extremely well Great work to this staff!

There were major problems with noise coming from a party in the hotel’s pool past 11:30 PM at night The hotel allowed 20 or more people to stay in the pool past the stated 11 PM closing time (the pool is in the middle of the hotel property) When a phone call was placed to the front desk at 11:30 PM about excessive noise still coming from a party happening in the pool, the desk attendant explained that the hotel cannot ask guests to leave the pool area even though it was time for it to close for the evening based on the hotel’s own rules

This was an absurd answer for a Marriott employee to give to a guest I’m all for people having a good time but what about the rest of the guests going to sleep? Hotels have rules for a reason This is second time we have used this hotel and won’t use it again
