“Crystal was awesome to our family!”
Reviewed 22 July 2014

We stayed this past weekend, not with the baseball groups that were in house, and we checked in later on Friday evening, Crystal was upfront about some teams in house, which we appreciate with young children and offered us a couple of different options for our two rooms and we were able to pick which we thought would be the most enjoyable.

The pool area was great and when they were out of towels, Crystal had a gentleman bring some out to us, he was great too I just don't know his name, but he brought us towels and pillows more than once, houseman working Friday and Saturday night, July 19 & 20th?

Neighborhood felt safe, I went to buy milk when we arrived at the 7-11 and it felt a little sketchy but nothing to reflect on the hotel. Easy to get in and out of.

If we had any complaints, there was strong cigarette smoke coming from somewhere, I know the hotel is smoke free, but it didn't smell like stale remnants, more like someone was smoking around us, and A/C was loud when it kicked on all through the night, but once my family was asleep, nothing to worry about.

Thanks Crystal!

This was a standard Res Inn property. Felt safe and was clean. It's a little on the run down side. If you are into new properties, this is definitely on the older side.
Not much near by this location. 7-11 next to the hotel. Walmart down the street. I'd probably stay at the Marriott properties closer to the airport next time, there is a mall right across the parking lot, lots of restaurants and theaters. I believe it was called Gulf Coast Town Center.

I stayed here and didn't realize they didn't have any king size beds. We didn't sleep very well and I asked the front desk to assist me in finding a place to stay (but a Marriott) with a king size bed. Ray Moran, General Manager, spent a considerable amount of time canceling my reservation and rebooking me at a different hotel that had king size beds. And he did it with a smile on his face. He went the extra mile and we really appreciated it!

We spent two nights here at the end of April. There were four of us and we had enough room, although you always want more. We didn't spend a lot of time in the room for anything other than sleeping. The breakfast was fine, although I have seen better at another Residence Inn. The one waffle iron was incredibly busy. Perhaps another one would be a good thing to have, so it wouldn't frustrate customers. My only complaint was a noise factor. The first night we were there, some youth basketball teams checked in about 10:30 or so. We were on the second floor and I could easily hear the youngsters playing basketball and just being youngsters. They weren't really causing a problem, but they were loud. I called down to the front desk and the young lady thanked me for calling, giving me the impression she would ask them to tone it down. Well, 15 minutes later, it was even louder so I called again. This time, I was told they were being checked-in so it wouldn't be much longer. That really told me that the hotel staff was not going to give any effort to asking them to be quieter. I put much of the blame, however, on the coaches/chaperones of the basketball teams. I have been a chaperone for school and church youth groups literally all over the world and I would have never let them be so loud that late at night. Look, I understand kids will be kids and are going to make some noise, but it was a bit over the top. We saw the young men in the breakfast room both mornings as we all had early appointments. They were well behaved there, but when you get that many kids together, they are going to make noise. I just wish the hotel staff had taken some action to try to get them to be quieter that late in the evening, but that didn't happen. I would definitely stay at this hotel again, hoping there wouldn't be the noise problem again.

We were looking for a hotel that was conveniently located to the Key West ferry. After finding nothing that suited our needs, we picked this hotel. The staff was friendly and the room was clean and nicely laid out. We stayed two nights on each end of our trip to Key West. I always liked staying at a Residence Inn for the breakfast but the breakfast at this location was below what I've come to expect from other Residence Inns that I have stayed at. I will stay use this hotel again for another trip.

Pool and spa were great. My boys made friends while here. Rooms were clean and large. I had booked a smaller room than I meant to by accident and Jake at the desk was very helpful in this regard. I stay in hotels every week as a business traveler and this hotel represents the quality and consistency of the Marriott brand.

We are generally fans of the Residence Inn line of hotels and have had decent stays at this one in past years. This year, we never had the chance. After arriving late in the evening, we were informed that our room wasn't available due to an issue with recent rains. Although the issue occurred a day prior, they didn't contact us in advance (they claimed they couldn't reach us by phone, but email certainly worked. I got all of the confirmations and promos by email).

Although we had booked a one bedroom w/kitchenette for two nights, the only offered to put us up in a basic hotel room at a sister property for one night. We'd then be responsible for packing up, checking out, and carting our things around with us for 4 hours until check in. After some verbal arm-twisting, they finally did agree to put us up for one night at the RI Sanibel which turned out to be a better property.

We were extremely disappointed to be bumped without warning, considering we'd made the reservation four months in advance. They least they could have done was find us a similar accommodation at their sister property. I recognize that casual travelers aren't their primary demographic, but I thought we'd be treated better. We won't be returning.
