We had a last-minute opportunity to get away for the weekend, so figured we'd hop the border and get some back to school shopping done for the kids, while also celebrating our anniversary. Our go-to hotel in the area was full for the weekend, so we figured we'd give the Marriott a try. On arrival, the front desk staff wasn't especially friendly. Room was nice enough, but is in need of an update, as are the hallways... lots of marks/scuffs/etc. on the wallpaper. Our room package included a bottle of wine... bonus... it was a great Cabernet Sauvignon (Woodbridge by Robert Mondavi). After a great dinner out, we were excited to come back and relax in the whirlpool. When we got to the pool area, just before 10, it was filthy. Empty glasses, discarded beer cans, and dirty towels all over the place. No clean towels to be found. My husband went to the front desk to ask for some and was told there were some in the dryer and they'd be along shortly. We sat in the hot tub (with no jets... couldn't find the "on" button and there were quite a few young kids swimming in it) for about 1/2 hour and there were still no towels... my husband ended up grabbing a few of the small towels from the workout area so we could at least get back to the room. I noticed quite a few guests bringing their own towels to the pool area so I wonder if this is a common problem? Breakfast buffet was nice, not sure I would have paid $32 if it wasn't included with our room package. All in all, we had an OK stay, but there are better (and less expensive) options close by.
