The Residence Inn in Ellicott City/Columbia Maryland is a little-know treasure. It is modern, tastefully furnished and beautifully maintained. It is an excellent choice for families with children as it has a swimming pool and breakfast that includes waffles. This hotel is uber clean, staff are extremely friendly and helpful and it is located in a residential area. The weekend... More

Great place to stay for a family of 4 with grown children. Clean and comfortable. Very reasonable rates! Everything you need. We had a 2-bedroom suite so kids had their own beds. (pull-out sofa bed was not super comfy but ok for 2 nights for our 6 ft son.) Full size fridge, dishwasher, & stove-top made it easy for us... More

Not a frequent Residence Inn customer, but this place hits above average. The receptionist, admittedly new, was very friendly and went out of her way to be helpful. The rooms are brand new (renovated) with ample space, a great living room arrangement (chaise lounge!), and nice touches such as Paul Mitchell toiletries. Well stocked kitchen will come in handy for... More

The TownePlace where I usually stay when working in the area was full, so I elected to try the Residence Inn Columbia. I am glad that I did. My room was one of the best I have had at a Residence Inn. It had obviously been renovated very recently. The sofa had a chaise on the end which was particularly... More

This was my first travel assignment with my job and I must say being away from home is already stressful when you are somewhere by yourself and you are not familiar wuth the area, but staying at this hotel didn't make my stay in Columbia any better. I must admit they had breakfast prepared for me every morning and it... More

I recently spent a little time at this hotel while on business in Columbia. I did see a sign that stated renovations in progress. Never saw a bit of this but will tell you that this hotel is very dated and renovations are very much needed. While the price is reasonable I would advise that you wait until after the... More

We recently spent 2 nights at this hotel while visiting family. I noticed signs in the hotel stating that renovations would begin on January 16, 2012. We checked out that morning, so I can't say I saw any construction activity, but that seems imminent. Hotel is in need of renovations, but it seems to have good bones.

Every employee was especially friendly and helpful. I joked with the head of housekeeping after she got our room ready early that I could make s'mores in our fireplace. The next day, she left a lovely gift bag packed with chocolate and marshmallows and a hand-written card. Everytime I saw her, which was often, she made sure that everything in... More

I think it was my mistake to choose this hotel at the first place, I should have backed off after seeing the response at the helpdesk as it never looked Marriott at the first place. I did not know any other place so I had to stay. There was wrong in everything about the hotel. I Would never recommend anyone... More

This was a clean, well run hotel. Apparently they allow pets because everyone had a pet on the lowest floor. We never heard them so the acoustics were great and the pet owners were careful about taking the dogs away from the hotel to do their business. Coffee in the lobby was great. Missed the complimentary free breakfast but hubby... More
