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

The staff was very friendly and helpful. Kim checked us in and was very courteous. The room was quiet, clean, and the bed was good. The cleaning staff freshened up the room daily very well. It is very close to a nice shopping mall and lot's of eateries. The breakfast was above average with coffee available around the clock. The... More

wanted to get away for the nite and spend some quality time with the wife. Found the residence inn a very nice, quiet place to make this happen. Would and have been there several times and use this place to put visitors when then come in from out of town.

Overall very nice hotel. We went with my 2 adults and 2 10 year olds. Rooms were clean, staff was friendly. 1st night we stayed in a studio and then 2 nights in 2 bedroom. Both were spacious for our family. Pool: Nice area...Pool is only 3' 6" deep. This is a personal preference for each family. Would have liked... More

Hotel staff very accommodating and helpful. Hotel was full, but very quiet at night. Good breakfast the next morning. Very clean hotel, nice location next door to a great restaurant, and nice mall across the street. Easy access on and off the highway.

We had dealings with three different employees during our one night stay and found all very friendly and helpful and went beyond the call of duty. Breakfast was one of the best compared to other residence inns I have stayed at. Will definitely stay at this property again.

We were very pleased with our recent stay at Residence Inn, KC. Thanks to TA reviews we knew to follow the signs for the Fairfield Inn next door. Our suite was spacious, clean, and convenient to many dining and shopping venues. Breakfast offerings exceeded expectations with "real" food cooked onsite and whipped cream and fruit available for waffles. Parking can... More

Overall, a decent stay here-- well located to the interstate, and otherwise fairly representative of Residence Inn quality, with two exceptions. First, the manager's reception (complimentary dinner) was of poor quality-- beef tacos, but the filling was unappetizing, and the taco shell was stale and hard to chew. Difficult to make dinner out of this. The second complaint is that... More

Overall, the hotel was OK, Rooms were clean and breakfast was OK. My only complaint was that the hotel address could bot be found on my GPS (built in Tom-Tom).
