Everything was first rate. My room was clean and beautifully decorated. Everything you could possibly want was provided. I had two dogs with me and appreciated the first floor room and places to walk them. It has a condo feel - very quiet. I dislike staying in hotels most of the time, but this was a joy.

Walked into a room bigger than a NY apartment and wondered if they got my reservation wrong. Great space. Nice kitchen, bathroom, huge closet, sofa. And all very clean. Very nice staff. And the local restaurants will deliver right to your door.

Loved the room with the kitchen, made it feel like home. Better than a plain room and bathroom. I would stay here again! Also, the morning breakfast was super. A wide variety of food and drinks and everyone I talked to that worked at this hotel were very friendly and helpful.

The rooms themselves were very comfortable, though trying to find one's assigned unit is difficult because of little outside signage to guide one around the property. Parking after the sundown can be challenging if you think you are going to park near your front door. Front Desk staff was extremely personable and helpful. The free-breakfast was fairly uninspiring and surprising... More

Friendly staff. Dated, almost run down property. Stained bed comforter and window coverings. Clean but dated room. Would give 2.5 if it allowed me. Below average breakfast. I am used to Springhill Suites.

For us to enjoy a trip requires a roll-in shower. The General Manager, Carrie, and her staff made sure we were accommodated with that and provided a welcoming atmosphere. Breakfast was pretty standard for Residence Inns but the wide selection of waffle toppings was fun.

Lots of space. Loved the layout of our room. Family friendly. The bed was not very comfy. The breakfast was good, but the dining area was always so full i didnt have anywhere to sit down with my 1 year old to eat with her. Everything else was great.

Outdated but very clean property. Lights, stove, phone didn't work in room. Breakfast was great and varied daily but reception hour was lacking. Staff was welcoming and nice just hands tied on the water issue I guess. I was told this water was normal!! Went to several local restaurants during my week long stay and their water wasn't like this.... More

The facility is ok as Residence Inn's go. It is close to the airport, has a nice reception and light dinner in the lobby. The front staff are excellent. I met three and they all were friendly and responsive to needs. The kitchen/food area staff are friendly and take pride in offering great food for the quests.
