This is a residence inn. This means it has a little kitchenette that has what you need to stay for a night, or a week. The room was large, with a desk, the kitchenette, a very comfortable bed, couch, nice modern TV, very clean bathroom and plenty of wall sockets. It seems to be quite new. Compared to a standard...

I like this Residence Inn, this is my second stay. The hotel serves wine and beer with the weeknight evening reception. Food seemed a little lame, but breakfast was typical and yummy. Do be careful the "Market" selections don't show price, I got a split of wine .....$17.50, I was a little surprised. I might have still selected the wine,... More

We have stayed in many residence inns, and this is one of the best we've stayed in. Spacious rooms, comfortable mattresses. Breakfast was significantly better than usual. Very close to FSU and the Capitol. Rooms facing the street can be a bit noisy, so ask for a room facing the parking lot.

This is the first time I have stayed at a Residence Inn and I must say I was surprised and impressed. The rooms are spacious, and are more like a 1 bedroom apartment.

Horrible mattresses, cheap windows, poor construction, dirty rooms. Moved from front of hotel to back because of noise. Still didn't sleep. Blood on duvet, someone came to give us a new one (housekeeping couldn't be found) and instead of bringing us another duvet, we got a mattress cover. Hair in bathroom. Coffee is U drinkable.

very close to FSU but the walls are paper thin. We heard every noise from the hallway, and streets. A train passes every morning at 6AM and blows the horn about 10 times. The buffet is OK except for the watered down sewer water they call coffee.

The location is great, especially with the upgrade of the area in between the universities. The room was large and convenient, but with small problems. Both the fridge and the AC made a lot of noise, and one of the bed lights was connected to the main light (turning the main light off, also turned off the bed light). More... More

This is a great place to stay if you are visiting FSU. It is just a few blocks from the school and has ample parking. The staff was friendly and the rooms were clean and comfortable. It was a bit pricey the night we stayed there were a number of events taking place that week, but the best alternative available.
