First this is a beautiful property. Huge bonus, there is a Chic-Fil-A right across the street. When I checked in I was given keys to room 210. When I walked through the door it wreaked! Smelled like sardines! I looked everywhere thinking someone had played a joke and hid a fish or something some where. Found nothing but the smell... More

I'm fine with Fairfield Inns in general and I really liked the new lobby in this one. Unfortunately, I found the customer service really lacking at this hotel. I was staying with a friend and she arrived a day ahead and paid for her room; I paid for mine with points for the next two nights. Despite clearing this up... More

I always stay at the Marriott whenever I travel. My reservation was for a king guest room but they didn't have one available when I arrived. They immediately upgraded me to the executive suite which worked out well since we were there to celebrate my boyfriend's birthday. We enjoyed the indoor pool and the fire pits on the patio. The...

The hotel was nice, not bad but not amazing either. At one point I found some centipede looking insect crawling on one of the beds. Other than that I had no issues as far as cleanliness. The front desk staff were all very friendly and helpful. The location is decent if you have a car. There's not much in walking... More

We stayed here for almost 2 weeks as we helped our daughter and family with a house move. Location was central to all of our activities with convenient access to highways, stores and restaurants. The buffet breakfast was yummy, the laundry room helpful and CLEAN, our room was perfect and the staff super accommodating and pleasant.

The hotel clean on the surface. Look closer, and things were a little rough and worn. No hot water for my shower (okay), but the response was "we'll get to it when we can." I expect more from Marriott.

I had to change rooms a twice. First room was not finished with cleaning and trash was on the ground and hair in multiple places. In addition, when i got to the room, it was ajar and not closed/locked. So they put me in another room on the 4th floor. The room was a bit better but found a giant... More

The hotel, lobby, and rooms were much nicer than expected. Arrival and check in were easy. Upgraded to a suite for a little more space in the room. Took a little tour of facility and really found the property "pretty nice". After a lovely breakfast, however, we left for an overnight stay in Asheville. Upon our return our room had... More
