We decided to take our kids and a friend each to this hotel just for the fun of the pool. We only live an hour away but the kids think it is a true vacation. The front desk staff was very warm and welcoming as was the pool and bar staff. Our room was very clean and typical of a Marriot. The only problem I had was the smell in our room at arrival. In an effort to be "green" and save energy, the air conditioning will not turn on until the room is occupied. Therefore, it had a musty smell. Since we spent all day at the pool, the air never came on and the musty smell remained. I think they should leave the air on in order to keep it fresh. Our kids thoroughly enjoyed the pool. At night, the pool is even better. I would highly recommend this hotel even with the musty smell. Just take febreeze. Just so you will know, this is a resort and outside food and drink as well as coolers are not allowed at the pool. They will provide ice water for free but the Auburn water tastes a little weird. Be prepared.
