I had never visited this hotel before and was extremely pleased with the reception and one bedroom upgrade, one of the nicest rooms I've ever had being an elite member of Marriott. Highly recommend the hotel for staff attitude, service, and responsiveness to our needs. Definitely will return once I get the chance. Beautiful hotel.

1st time visiting this hotel. Check in was smooth and easy. Front desk clerk was friendly and quick. Room was very nice and clean and spacious. It was like a apartment. It offered a full size working kitchen, plenty of closet space, nice comfortable living room and plenty of room for the bathroom area with separate shower and toilet area....

Excellent hotel, friendly staff. Good free breakfast I booked a 2 bedroom suite, when I arrived, the hotel said the people there didn't check out and they didn't ask them to leave. No more suites available so they gave me two rooms for the same price. this was not bad, only the 2 rooms were in different buildings and i...

Arrived with a family of 5 to spend time on the beach, was greeted with a pleasant and warm welcoming, staff was very professional and courteous, plenty of room with an upstairs bedroom, even though this hotel is older, the decor was great, would definitely stay again.

Stayed overnight on a business trip. Check-in was smooth and the staff was very professional. The room I had was in bldg 10, on the ground floor. When I first walked in, there was a slight musty smell, but it was cleared away when the AC came ON. It wasn't present for the remainder of the night. Apart from that...

Stayed here one night for work. I was literally in and out so I can't comment on any amenities. My room was in building #9 on the fist floor. It smelled like a wet basement - musty and old. The furniture was dated and it had carpet in the bathroom. All in all - it made me not want to...

The hotel itself was nice lots of room, was very clean, the weather when we was there wasn't very good so we only got one good day at the ocean, so we tried to make the most out of our short stay. When I booked this room I didn't know the beach was going to be 20 minutes away from...

I've been a Marriott Rewards member for 15 years I do not recall this ever happening to me. I was traveling with my family from over a thousand miles away.

We stayed in this hotel for 2 nights for our first trip to Clearwater, Florida. Our room was on the main floor which was convenient to avoid us climbing the stairs for the room on the second floor.

We were hoping to find a place on the beach for our winter get away but were priced out. We chose the Residence Inn because of the price and accommodations.
