Great individuals at the front desk. Great spacious rooms with stove, fridge, micro and more. Good pool and hot tub. Nice having the hot breakfast. Kids loved the basketball hoop; grill worked great. Have stayed at this property several years now, and will definitely come back when in town again. A friend of mine wasn't able to check in because... More

This location is easily found off of the highway. Typical Residence Inn, but papers to have been updated recently. The lobby is new and inviting. The pool and hot tub are indoor and can get pretty loud if a lot of kids come in (like tonight!). The front desk staff was very polite and helpful. Sarah (front desk) greeted us... More

Just like many others, I was upgraded to a 2 bedroom suite upon checkin....really appreciated that. Room was first floor and did hear some dogs barking around 7 pm but they stopped pretty quickly. Room was spotless....really super clean. Each bedroom had a queen in it and one had a desk, which I guess made it the master? Pull out... More

Stayed here visiting family over Memorial Day weekend. It wasn't too packed for the holiday. Bed was comfy, sleeper couch was equally fine for the kiddos. Can be a bit smallish when it is extended though. Air handling did its job and the kitchen had the stuff we needed for "snacky dinner" preparation. The pool was smallish and closes early.... More

I stayed at the Residence Inn on business and the room was very spacious and clean. I only stayed 2 nights but it was well equipped for a longer stay. The Staff was very friendly and helpful. I would stay again for business or personal.

It was in the 20's, and the day had been quite long when I finally found the Residence Inn. It is a little difficult at night because it is behind other properties. However, everyone was very nice. The happy hour was much better than most places I have visited. They had chili, salad, potato salad, cornbread, and little cream puffs... More

Everything was great with my stay. The people were nice, specifically Iris and Brian. The breakfast had a nice variety and my room was spotless. I believe a woman named Maria or Mary cleaned my room. She was very nice and obviously did a fantastic job. The firepit outside is lovely!
