The positives: Linda in the kitchen, Roger and Jaz at the front desk are great employees.
The negatives: Rooms cleared of belongings by hotel staff during a stay, rooms entered when DND sign is posted, attempted access and removal of laptop computer, beds not made, toilets not cleaned, locks broken, filthy windows, thermostats reset to 67 during a stay, 5 minute wait for hot water, access to pool area open to anyone from the street, "lady of the night" washing hair in whirlpool while staff is aware of her presence. And on. Avoid this hotel.
I travel for my job and spend several months to a year in Marriott hotels, but this one is the worst ever.
The door knobs, microwave, flooring and more are falling apart.
I traveled home from Thursday to Monday night. The maid cleaned my room Thursday on the date that I left. When I returned, my door had been left ajar for 5 DAYS!!!
The door was broken. This was the second time this had happened. The pool is FILTY! And where the sidewalk meets the parking lot is plastered with green mold. Just thought you'd want to know.
