The staff were friendly...the only problem was the door did not lock to the room..didn't even have to us card key to get in...when we told the manger she said that the building is new and haven't settled yet..I'm like...ummm no..they should have for a better building planner...So I'm not staying there again unless the doors are fixed...that's not safe.

darnellap2016 - Thank you for staying with us and thank you for the review! I first want to apologize that you were told that about our doors. Are you sure you meant to leave this review about us? We only have two managers on staff and they are both men. Again if it was our location we definitely want to...

Great place to stay, room was very clean & the breakfast was fabulous - especially the cinnamon rolls! Keurig in the room is a great perk so bring your fave k- cups if you want something besides plain coffee which is supplied.

The suite was large - including a couch, chair/ottoman, moveable work desk and chair, big televsion with variety of channels, microwave, mini-fridge with working freezer, Keurig coffee maker and table/chairs. The room was very clean and quiet. I would...

After a 3 hour non stop drive, this was a great rest. Friendly staff. They called when I went upstairs to see how I liked the room and if I needed anything. And called again right before I left to see how I liked my stay. Super clean room. I had a spa room. Loved it. And quite. I plan...

Very clean, in a good area of town. Close to many businesses. Employees very friendly. Breakfast was one of the better ones for complimentary ones. Even though I gave it a 5, I have one suggestion. This is a non-smoking hotel, however one of the designated smoking areas is right by the front door. You have to wade through the...

The rooms were clean. Breakfast buffet was tasty and plentiful. The staff was friendly and helpful, especially figuring out a double booked room (not the hotel's fault.) We had a big room and really enjoyed our stay.

This our second time at this property. It is a great stop, newer hotel, great location and many fine dining choices very close to Hotel. It is truly pet friendly with a $25 pet fee. I especially liked the breakfast area. There was a nice lady keeping everything clean and up to date all up and down the breakfast bar....

I've stayed at several properties in Marion over the years - Comfort Suites, Hampton, Drury, Fairfield and here. This one excells. The rooms are a bit nicer and larger than the others and the free breakfast is far superior. The beds are very comfortable, showers work well and the linens are in good shape.

Beginning of a very long trip in June. Landscaping still establishing. Lots of luggage carts. Pet rooms appear to be clustered together on the second floor. No over powering scent of carpet cleaner or fragrance to cover pet oopsies. Who knew at the time that it was the best hotel breakfast we'd find. For a full house, buffet was kept...
