i transferred to this hotel after booking at the springhill suites in columbia. Springhill was new and had great service but didn't have a kitchen as I had booked through a corporate website. Therefore I moved to the residence Inn after I was told that there only a $10/night room difference and that the hotel had been renovated in 2005.... More

Filthy, dated room - with ants in the bathroom, around the sink - and even in my bedside table - every single day!!!! Unbelievable. Bad smelling room (and hallways) too.

The hotel property just feels tired and dirty. The carpet, furniture, etc in the rooms and in the common areas need an update. The internet service (wireless) crawls in the evening. It's free, but they do not have the bandwidth to support the number of guests that try to access the internet in the evening. The morning breakfast is the... More

I have stayed at this hotel twice for business and have decided I will never stay here again. They have the some of the worst hotel service ever. Below are the issues: 1. I didn't want my room to be cleaned during the week while I was staying here. Everyday I requested a door tag and never received one. Today... More

I read many reviews about this hotel before we booked it. I was a little nervous being that it is literally RIGHT off the main highway. The view our room had was the off ramp for the hotel. There was almost no noise. You could hear a few cars and trucks here and there but it was not enough to... More

Very pleasant stay. Clean hotel and rooms. Breakfast included was good; teenagers approved! I agree that highway noise can be a distraction, but if you're a heavy sleeper, don't worry about it. I would stay again.

we checked in pretty late for a one night stop at this residence inn after flying across the country to find out our room was literally OH the freeway.... it was by far the noisiest hotel we have ever stayed at and we've stayed in hotels AT major airports before with thick windows so you could not hear a plane...

My husband took a job in this area and we were moving from out of state. We stayed here four days while house hunting in February 2009. I choose this hotel due to the excellent reviews on hotels.com. I was not disappointed. The room was large, included kitchenette (full size fridge, stove top, microwave, and sink), sofa, chairs, and coffee... More

Bottom line: The rooms were nice and the hotel was comfortable and safe, but I recommend also checking out the Residence Inn at Arundel Mills. I've stayed at this hotel a few times over the past seven years, so I obviously think favorably of it since I've returned. The furnishings don't seem to have changed, but I don't think they've...
