As always, the Marriott brand has not disappointed me. My husband and I stayed for an overnight over the weekend. Our room was on the second floor and it was really nice. We love the kitchen amenities (although we didn't cook as it was just an overnight stay). The area is quiet. We liked the complimentary breakfast. Even though the... More

I stayed at this Residence Inn for almost 3 months while relocating here. My son, small dog, and I were treated very well, and the staff was excellent. We really felt at home, and it was a casual family and friends atmosphere. The room was spacious and well-furnished. There were complimentary beverages and appetizers or dinners 3 night a week,...

I have to say that the staff here have been wonderful. They're friendly, responsive, and flexible. And they do all that under really busy conditions. It's what makes them so busy that makes this hotel not a favorite for me. This is my 3rd visit here, and every time, they've been packed with families with lots of kids. I love... More

I actually live in town and had to stay here for a few days due to a flood at my home. I was very pleasantly surprised at the wonderful accommodations. My suite was very clean.

This hotel was great. Clean, super clean. The rooms come with a kitchenette - stove, full size fridge, dish washer. The pool was great too. Clean and not too warm, not too cold. The staff was very helpful and the free breakfast was awesome. There are enough restaurants and shopping malls around to keep everyone satisfied. You name it, it... More

We booked a two bedroom unit and was extremely pleased with the cleanliness and quality of the rooms, plenty of space and a well equipped kitchen. The external area between the building was very well maintained and the breakfast was good with plenty of choice. The price was amazing excellent value for money.

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!

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.
