We've stayed here many times over the years and would use it to host a small family Christmas. In past years this has worked well. We'd get a nice, clean 2 bedroom suite with a fully functional kitchen in a safe, quite location. This year, the change for the worse couldn't be more obvious. The first room we were given... More

We selected this hotel for a recent stay since it was in a more residential neighborhood than the other choices (one exit away on I-94). Residence Inns generally cost $25-$35 more than places such as Hampton Inn or Holiday Inn Express. In this case, the hotel was worth less than the other properties, not more. The complex has outside entrances... More

I stayed here only one night as I needed to catch a flight out of Kalamazoo early the following morning.

We always enjoy the extra space we get when we stay at a Residence Inn. We had a second floor room, with one king bed, kitchen, living area, dressing area with sink, and bathroom. All the furnishings were in great shape. The only thing in the room that did not look new was the bathtub. The caulk around the top... More

We had a 2 bedroom/2 bathroom suite. Extremely roomy; even sink/dressing areas and kitchen were spacious. Fireplace added an aesthetic touch. We were very surprised that the noise level was very low given that we were on the lower floor and the property was sold out for a college football weekend.

The room was clean, and well appointed. But, what really impressed me was the staff, particularly a gentleman named Brandon who was in guest services. He went above and beyond to take care of us during our stay. He also drove us in the shuttle, and was very pleasant. The office staff was also very friendly, and willing to help.... More
