Needs Some TLC, but good

Reviewed 16 october, 2021

Location: Easy to find, but also easy to miss if you're not familiar with the area. Limited on street parking or pay for valet $17 per night. Well worth it. Staff: I didn't find the front desk staff very helpful. When asked for suggestions on where to eat, I was told to "leave the hotel and head left or right and I would find plenty of places". William at the front desk barely made eye contact, always have the impression he was being bothered. There weren't any other guest when I would speak to him. Room: room was clean and efficient for one night. The phone did not work in my room, the front desk and maintenance didn't seem concerned when I mentioned this to them. I had my cell phone so I wasn't too worried and I ended up using my cell phone whenever I needed to call the front desk. It was also no information to be found regarding Wi-Fi so I had to call the front desk to find out about that. Food: If you leave the hotel, turn left then right at the next major intersection and there is a lot of choices for food. So many it's overwhelming. Would have been nice to have gotten some suggestions from staff. Hotel Overall: This is considered a Marriott category 4 hotel. I honestly believe it should be a category 3. I know many hotels took a hit during the covid shutdown. But this hotel really shows it's age in minor cosmetic issues. Many areas of the wallpaper are ripped and peeling in the hallways I guess from people's luggage but this is a maintenance issue that should be attended to. The seats in the hallway are chipping formica pieces. One of the sheets in my bed was stained. It was visibly washed but it had a stain. The gold standard for sheets and hotels is white that's what they make bleach for. Pool: pool was very clean and very little people in attendance. Gym: The gym is fantastic. It is very clean and well stocked with really nice equipment. Signage: The sign is this hotel really stinks. Everything is label Re: something. If you don't know the name of the gym you will walk right past it. It simply has the name and does not say gym. I walked past it twice not knowing it was the gym, and I know from conversations with other guests that they had the same experience. Overall: I would stay at this hotel again but only for a short period of time.

Caution - filthy and infested!!!

Reviewed 27 september, 2021

My planned 2 night business stay turned into 1 hr game of musical rooms. When I arrived the staff did not have on any masks which was slightly concerning given the pandemic rate in Florida. It should have been a warning but I chose to move forward. I was checked in very quickly by a polite staff member and proceeded to room 516 as I requested a high floor room away from the elevator. I got what I asked for but not the other things that came along with the room. I immediately noticed on the toilet seat there was a very tiny bug crawling and hair in the shower pan. I killed the bug (bc again-Florida) and continued to inspect the room. I found more hair and small bugs crawling on the nightstand and on the desk and grew concerned regarding the cleanliness. I immediately cuffed my pant leg out of concern that they could be fleas or some other bug that I did not wish to be infested by. There was mold on the ceiling. When I pulled back the sheet cover there was a very gnarly stain on the edge of the mattress. It was very visible as the sheet had not been properly fitted to the mattress it was only covering the pillow top portion. Thus, the entire side of the mattress was exposed along with the fluid stain. Disgusted, I went back to the front desk and requested another room; I was told “the bugs might just be Florida ants”, which did not matter to me either way. I did not want whatever they were to get into my luggage and travel home with me. I was moved to room 212 and inspected that room prior to moving my luggage. Room 212 had urine on the toilet seat along with hair on the vanity and a very visible toenail clipping in the bathroom next to the toilet. To add insult to injury there was a garment that appeared to be men’s underwear right under the bench where the luggage was supposed to be stowed. I immediately went back to the front desk and kindly requested a 3rd room. At that point the desk associate decided it would be best to visit the rooms and document the concerns. We went to room 212 where it was documented that the garment was left at the and I was told that maybe housekeeping may have overlooked it. However we both agreed that the presence of the garment meant that they obviously did not go back to check cleanliness. We went to room 208 as I was the last king room. We hurriedly looked through the room and I agreed that it was in better condition than the other despite the floor tile repairs needed at the entrance. I went back to the front desk with the associate for the 3rd room key. Prior to moving into that room however, I left my luggage in the hallway so I could complete a more thorough inspection. Again there was hair on the vanity and in the bathroom shower pan. When I walked to the edge of the bed I thought I heard something scurry near the floating wall. So I immediately slapped the walls and headboard to rattle/recreate whatever I heard. I pushed the mattress slightly away from the wall just to calm my nerves bc maybe I was just hearing things. Instead I was frightened by what I saw; something black between the mattress and the bedframe tucked under the large floating wall. The front of it was triangular and there was a shiny bead to the left side of it that you can see in the pictures. I immediately got frightened as I wasn’t certain what it could possibly be. I really hope it was just another garment as it didn’t move but the shape and size resembled a rodent. By that time I was so disgusted by the cleanliness that I didn’t trust it to not be a rodent of some sort. I quickly took a picture and ran from the room. I brought my luggage back to my car and kindly notified the front desk lady that I was uncomfortable and could not stay at their facility. She told me she understood and would probably do the same thing in my predicament and ensured me that I would receive a refund.

Alyssa Front desk AAA+++ customer service

Reviewed 25 september, 2021

Alyssa at front desk was fantastic. It’s been a long long time since we have come across a morning front desk attendant that has such charismatic & great personality. So refreshing! The morning of sept 24th Friday. The hotel was great as usual

Friendly Staff Great Bartenders

Reviewed 26 august, 2021

Room was very clean, definitely up to Marriott standards. Comfortable beds, and nice room layout. Lisa was the Bartender at the pool Friday and Saturday, and had a great playlist, She was very friendly, as were all the bartenders. Bars are exceptionally well stocked. Pool area has a great view of the city, this was important as we were staying during the red tide bloom, and the beaches were not really an option. Front desk staff were friendly, and helpful they recommended several area restaurants that were great. All requests were handled promptly.

Bugs in the bed, elevators broken, not up to Marriott standard!

Reviewed 31 may, 2021

We travel a lot and our stay here was not what I expected from a Marriott hotel. I stayed for 3 nights recently with 2 teenagers. The elevator was not working well and it left us stranded several times. One of my kids got severely bitten by bugs (bed bugs or fleas) during the night which left itchy red, uncomfortable bites all over her body. I talked to the Assistant General Manager and we showed her the fresh bites the last morning and she showed little empathy or concern about it at all. I won't be staying there again or recommending it to others.
