I started writing this review last December after our Thanksgiving trip. I sent a letter on December 1 to the management of the Residence Inn. They really didn't address the majority of our problems. The "good"- there was an excellent breakfast every morning and a social in the evening for part of our stay. The location was fabulous, next to... More

Everyone who worked here were friendly and helpful. I really can't think of anything they need to improve on. I will stay here again. The breakfast was always good quality and plenty of it. The kitchen has just the bare ecentialls(sp) so check to make sure you have everything you need before preparing a big dinner.

Well off I-70 so you won't hear road noise. But to be fair about the noise, I did notice a persistent mechanical type noise that did not bother my wife and did not penetrate my ear plugs. This place has both a nice breakfast and a light supper. I liked the internet connected PC with printer in the lobby. My... More

First off, I have stayed at this hotel several times and have yet to find a staff member who was anything other than great. Staff always went out of their way to be helpful including one who spent 5 minutes looking for a screwdriver so I could put batteries in my sons new Christmas present (did not catch your name...

Stayed one night to see a show downtown. Easy access, close to food. Rooms were clean. Bed was good. Breakfast was hot and filled me up. Would stay there again with no concerns. Staff was kind and very considerate.

This Residence Inn is well run and staffed by some very nice people. Shelley was extremely helpful as we asked to move to a room with firmer beds. It is not uncommon for the rooms on the 1st floor to be requested (and used) more. The beds on the 4th floor are much firmer and provide the needed support. Shelley... More
