We booked this hotel for two weeks but moved out after one. This place could be great but...it's not. The location is good and the room size is good, we rented a two bedroom, but the cleaners either don't care or can't read English. I left two notes pointing out that between the bed and nightstand there was animal hair... More

At first I was tentative about booking a room at this location due to some of the other reviews stating that it was old and dated. Upon arrival I was greeted by a very friendly front desk clerk. After some friendly chatter, I proceeded to my room. She never told me, but she had upgraded me to a 2 bedroom... More

We stayed here for a weekend and brought our Bassett Hound, they charge a $100 no refundable pet sanitation fee. The suite was clean, with a fully stocked kitchen and a REAL 12 cup coffee maker! If coffee is important to you, I would recommend bringing your own coffee filters and coffee because all they have are those premeasured packets... More

Wow! Thanks for such a nice review. I will be sure to let Lannette know how she made you feel. Although it is important that the product is to your expectations, it is the people and service that make the most memorable impression. To be honest, it's also the most fun to do. We appreciate you making our day, too!... More

I quickly booked this hotel online and then read a few reviews. Initially I was worried, but really, our family could not be happier with this hotel. The hotel had two bedrooms and two comfy beds with lounge area and kitchen. The fold out , admittedly was not so comfy, but it was only for one night. Breakfast was basic,... More

Nice bed and bedding, pleasant decor, kitchenette with everything but an oven, big flat screen TV, good breakfast in the morning, even nice soft towels. Quiet even on the ground floor, good location right off the freeway but no freeway noise. Pleasant staff. Very clean.

This is the second time that I have had the pleasure to stay at this Residence Inn. The hotel is convient to a variety of restaurants, many are walking distance. I went for a walk Friday evening at about 8pm (alone) and never felt threatened by the area. The manager special (event in the lobby) was enjoyable; however the hamburgers... More

I really had no idea that the Residence Inn was this great. It's not fancy by any means, however they give you everything you need. I was here visiting family, so there were 8 of us split up into 3 rooms. We stayed in the double suites, the rooms were clean and very comfortable. Of course the room had a... More
