We stayed here for one night on our way home from Chicago. Our minivan had broken down and we needed to wait until the morning for any repair shops to open. So, we headed over thinking we would find a Hampton due to our maps, and found the Residence Inn instead. I explained our situation to Jackie and she was... More

Arrived late and was given a nice welcoming "guest of the day" package. The room was nice. Large with a full kitchen, complete with nicer place settings. Unfortunately, there was no wireless internet access in the room. It's amazing how one comes to expect it these days. Tablets and smart phones have real limitations without it.

My husband and I have been staying at this hotel several times throughout the summer as our son is playing his summer collegiate baseball season with the Kalamazoo Growlers.

Great place! The staff was warm, friendly and helpful. The room was clean and very comfortable. The free breakfast the hotel offered was a great way to start our day. The hotel location was great for us during our stay in Kalamazoo.

I stayed here in July for one night. The staff was great. The unit was large and had a full kitchen. I loved the full size fridge, I didn't use it but it would be great if I was here with my family. The hotel had dinner provided in the lounge which was nice. We didn't eat there but it... More

Stayed here for the night with wife and daughter. Room was very big, well maintained and clean. Like the fridge and kitchenette, good sized bathroom. Service seemed quick and friendly with check in and out. We didn't try breakfast, pool and other facilities were nice. I'd stay again if in the area.

Stayed here for a week. It was in a great location for us... Near family we were visiting and large enough to easily fit the six of us. We had two bedrooms with a pull out couch, two bathrooms and a full kitchen. Free breakfast was great and changed it up so it wasn't exactly the same thing every day.... More

Close to airport and nice walking\running 3.5 mile trail close by and a nice park. My TV was out two days due to a upgrade? Very inconvient but you probably wont experience it. I stayed there 15days.

As reported by others, the staff were really very nice. Always pleasant and smiling and friendly. Made us feel quite welcomed. The exterior of the building looked nice, but upon closer inspection, needs some work. Rust and decay are evident and would be overall a very BIG project. Our suite was perfect for our family of 6 for one night.... More
