Although this is a older hotel they are in the midst of making changes. The staff here is phenomenal. If we need anything it is a phone call away. We asked for feather pillows once we never had to ask for again. Everytime we are here there are feather pillows. We get the same room on every visit and if...

The location is the highlight of the hotel if you are visiting campus. The photos are deceiving since the lobby has been updated and the outside appears nice. The rooms and pool area are another story. The only thing modern in the room is the small flat screen tv. The bathroom is tiny, the drapes are dusty, the furniture has...

I was in town for business and always stay at Marriotts. When I arrived I noticed there was pubic hair in the shower, a foul odor in the room, dried liquid on the wall, stains on the carpet and pieces of black hair when I pulled the covers back. I will never stay here again!

Nice Courtyard level hotel very close to campus & downtown. Initial outside view may raise concern, but inside accommodations and Marriott service is good. Have stayed a few times and never had any issues.

The hotel is nice but seems dated. Rooms are clean but walls are very thin and can hear everything. Good location to the campus. Have laundry which is so nice. The set up is a little odd as some rooms have outside entry.

Good hotel with excellent staff! They were quick checking us in even with several bus loads of students. My housekeeper left me special messages! What a nice treat to come home to!

The reception are to be commended for their friendliness and attention to detail. They show they really care. The room is only okay. The bed and bedding are excellent and that is what is most important. Doors, walls, bathrooms need a major update; even some peeling paint.

I arrived too late to order a glass of wine (10pm) and slept too late to get any breakfast. They stop serving breakfast at 9:30. In a college town???? Hotel has a weird layout and is dated. Didn't think the hotel was a great value.
