We booked this hotel because of it's reasonable price and location close to my son's university, but we were very pleasantly surprised at the size of the room and quality of the furnishings. I miss their fluffy pillows! The free breakfast was good, and everything was enhanced by the friendliness of the staff. The only reason I didn't give 5... More

Overall the room and price were great but the outside is definitely in need of maintenance. Our children were afraid to walk up the stairs and having to walk outside to get to breakfast in Michigan in winter/early spring can be very cold and wet.

Thank you for your review on the Residence Inn. I understand your comments on the exterior of the property. This long winter has been very harsh on the exterior of the property and we are working every dry day to have us looking fresh for the spring. I hope you will return later this spring or summer so you can... More

Stayed here for a weekend while covering call at Bronson hospital. I found the staff to be very pleasant, if informal (kept calling me Sabina, but that may have been because they couldn't pronounce my last name!)! The Facility was very nice... i was very impressed at how clean the rooms were on the inside (the exterior leaves something to... More

Stayed here over the weekend for business. My coworker and I had a 2 bedroom suite, we each had our own room and our own bathroom. The room was spotless! Our housekeeper even wrote us a note to enjoy our weekend and stay. The complimentary breakfast in the morning was delicious. Would stay here again if I had to come... More

Just got home from a fun weekend and this hotel was just perfect! We had a large group (15-20 or so people ) and our rooms were great! Large enough to hang out in with everyone or there was the lobby with the fireplace and couches-we just sat there one day laying on couches by the fire looking out at... More

When in Kalamazoo I often stay here. Price is very competitive, just off the highway, and close to downtown and WMU. Check in went very smooth. Rooms are large, clean and quite comfortable. Service of staff is solid. Highly recommend

My experience at the hotel was incredible. The staff are incredibly warm and friendly, always looking to find ways to make your stay more enjoyable. I stayed during the gloomy, snowy, slushy January weather. When asked how it was after the first night, I said "great, just send us some sunshine." When i returned to the room that night, the...

Once inside the room it was very nice and exactly as I had hoped. However, this was not originally a hotel. It was an apartment complex. Most of the rooms are in stand-alone buildings. Anything on the second floor requires a hike up (and down) uneven stairs. Even if your are on the ground floor, it is still a separate... More

Good afternoon Residence Inn is an all-suite hotel designed for the long term traveler. Our Hotel is designed more like an apartment for that reason so each person has their own private entrance and that at home feeling. Our Residence Inn was built in 1989 as a Residence Inn and remains a Residence Inn today. I am sorry to hear... More
