Horrible. Went into our "clean room" and used condom and wrapper in the garbage in bathroom. Very disappointed as we are loyal Marriott customers. Would not recommend this hotel . Man at front desk was very nice though considering.

The front desk staff not trained very well and lacking customer service skills. Right from the time of check-in, our experiences had been the worst ever like giving attitude, no eye contact to the guest and not providing information about the hotel. The unpleasant experience at your hotel shaken my belief to provide good customer care at all times specially holding the name of Fairfield by Marriott. I asked for more towels since the bathroom had few in the room, the Front Desk on duty gave us the towels and by surprised, the face towels were dirty. And since the hotel have the protocol of cleanliness, the Front Desk on duty must check the towels before giving to the guest. No apology nothing but gave me a look. I am writing to encourage to improve the customer service of your Front Desk staff and ensure to take pride in giving your guest the feeling at home and the high standard of cleanliness in order not to spread the covid19 virus in your hotel. I would like to take credit for the Housekeeping Asian Lady on the 3rd floor for excellent service as well as Ruby. Both of them were very professional in their field of work. I hope that these problems will rectify the service in your hotel in order to maintain the reputation of Marriott Hotel Worldwide. Thanks.

Hotel appears to be a bit run down in a lot of areas. Rooms could use some fixing up. The noise transfers from room to room quiet easily and we could here the people often in the room downstairs, and a baby crying. We found our room a little cool, even with the thermostat turned as high as it would go. Person working on the front desk was not friendly. Breakfast-to-go provided no options and included a rotten, frozen banana on 2 occasions when I stayed here. I will not return for a 3rd time to the locations. Marriott on Bryne Road is much better. I'd pay the extra dollar to go there in the future. This hotel does not live up to the Marriott standards.

Little unsure of this place as we read the reviews. Turned out great. Staff were great- every single one we talked to. Clean and comfy rooms! Not much for amenities around. They get a five star as I think cleanliness and courteous staff make it! Pool was kid friendly!

Hotel is located not far off Hwy 400 . Lobby was alright not big staff were friendly and efficient. Breakfast until 9am but in a bag due to Covid didn’t make it ended 9am hotel was newer looking but saw some damage and a broken door but overall clean room was smaller clean though . Fridge and microwave 2 small beds but met our needs for the night. But probably wouldn’t return empty coffee in the lobby just expected a little more for the price .
