Just a word to the wise to fellow DOC readers, stay far away from Marriott Homes & Villas!

I stayed recently paying only $30 TOTAL for 2 nights (instead of $230 w/ an Amex no min $200 statement credit) and STILL REGRET IT. Here are the reasons why:

1. separate entity than Marriott. lower standards, T&C’s, accountability
2. no phone # at all for customer service
3. if you can’t get in the apartment the only thing you can do is email them and pray for a response
4. if you don’t like something about the place, or anything breaks, you’re out of luck
5. terms & conditions state they are not responsible for your security deposit! (so if the property owner decides not to give it back to you even if you have video evidence you cannot get your deposit back)
6. security deposit is often 1/2 the cost of the property
7. there is no rating/review system as of a few months ago so the platform can continue to rent out terrible properties over and over again that look great in the photos
8. poor cancellation policies
9. if comparing against Airbnb & VRBO options, you pay a 30-50% premium for what you’re getting with no protection like Airbnb Aircover (which is now included in most bookings which i’ve used on several occasions if host cancels or things aren’t as advertised)
10. see reddit for more..

The above list is objective. My experience is as follows: I entered a dirty place, hot water not functioning, next to a nightclub, was overcharged by the platform, spent months emailing various Marriott channels ie Twitter, email, chat etc for my security deposit to no avail, finally resorting to calling my CC issuer to file a dispute. I have no financial interests in any competitors, just trying to pay it forward as readers have done with me!


Does anyone happen to know if the $1000 also include the refundable security deposit?


How are these properties compare to VRBO and Airbnb?


I have one coming up in El Paso Tx and while airbnb had hundreds of properties available, vrbo had dozens and marriott had like 5 lol
The 5 ones available were mid to upper tier


Living next door to any one of these sucks the same.


If you ever need customer support you’ll find out Marriott is not responsible for them whatsoever. Many bad stories on reddit Marriott talking about the lack of CS.


You pay $125/night more for the benefit of earning Bonvoy points – at least that was the price difference between Vacasa and Marriott Homes for a Tahoe stay in November 2022.


I recently did a Vacasa stay in Tahoe over Thanksgiving. The same property was listed in Marriott Homes for about $130/night more. It’s not worth it just to earn Bonvoy points. If you find a property at Marriott Homes just repeat the search on other sites to make sure you’re not getting ripped off.
