The bed- its about 20 yrs old and as soft as a bean bag. The pull out sofa, whichI thought had to be better was like a cot from camp as a child. The smell- they use some cinnamon based cleaner that overwhelms you. The cleanliness- I found used soap in the shower, and you did not feel like you...

The people were friendly. The breakfast was good. And a pleasant bonus of salsa, chips, sausage and buns with free beer (limit two) and wine for happy our during the first of the week. It's a little older but still very comfortable. Nice selection of restaurants in the area.

We also found a spider and the parking was horrible. the "gym" is very small with two treadmills and one broken elliptical. Everything in this hotel needs...

The property is a little tired (some of the carpet is due for replacement, other minor deferred maintenance issues). The staff was friendly and pleasant. Beds were comfortable and the rooms clean. It is a pet friendly property and was a little put off by sharing the breakfast room with pets. Stayed on a sat. night so most of the...

This is perhaps the oldest Residence Inn property we have ever stayed at. It might have been the suite we were in (2 bedroom suite) but the furniture, lamps, etc were quite dated. However, that did not take away from the convenience of staying here. We were in town for a graduation in May and decided to go with the...

I stayed here just one night on business. The check-in was friendly and quick. The room was clean, quiet and just fine for me. Maybe a little aged, but still nice. The bed was so comfortable.

Good location close to shopping, restaurants and the highway, but off the beaten path. Friendly people and beer in lobby each night I was here. Good amount of plugs in room and comfy bed. The towels are a little old and I didn't realize how much I wanted a luggage stand until I didn't have one. Good wifi as well...
