Using the SC go to the VM location /vmfs/volumes/VOLUMENAME/VMNAME and look for files that have names ending with -delta.vmdk. If even one of those exists the VM has a snapshot. If a backup fails a snapshot could exist and you do not know about it.
You can issue
vmware-cmd pathToVMX hassnapshot
If the return is true then use
vmware-cmd pathToVMX removesnapshots
Which will remote your snapshots.
If the return is not 'true' then you can restart the appropriate services and reconnect to VC as you are out of sync somehow.
service mgmt-vmware restart
service vmware-vpxa restart
Thanks but I tried that already. hasnapshots is null and removesnapshots says there is no snapshots to be removed. It's really strange because these are all brand new servers and fresh vm's and I haven't created a snapshot on any of them. I'm going to restart all the services to see what happens but something fsckd up. No backups are running either.

Restarting the vc server service cleared it up.
