This is one of those properties that you can always count on for consistent quality at affordable rates. It appears the management team has their act together because the entire staff is well trained and extremely helpful. Rooms are spacious and decent quality for this class property. Nice breakfast served in the morning by some very sweet ladies. Don't miss... More

Stayed at this property for an extended period recently. The was for a group event and the staff was very pleasant. The staff was over accommodating and couldn't haveen been nicer, especially the sales manager. She was a big help for our group. The rooms were always clean and so was the rest of the property.

I was disappointed with this hotel as it is not up to the standards of the Marriott chain. The one bedroom suite was small and the furniture was old. The mattress on the sofa-bed was awful. Our two teenage girls didn't sleep much as it was not comfortable. The water from the faucets was extremely bad tasting. The service however... More

We had a 2 bedroom suite with 2 baths and living room (3 TV's). Friendly and efficient staff at check-in and check out. Great location off I 81. Free hot and cold breakfast. Free parking. Free internet. There is a Chinese/Sushi buffet 100 yards away and numerous other restaurants within 2 min drive.

My first impression was that it was an older property. The rooms were fine but furnishings seemed dated and the bed squeeked (but it was comfortable). The breakfast food was okay but just didn't seem up to the higher standard I've come to expect from a Residence Inn. A couple tips about htis property is to ask for a room... More

From the minute you arrive, you are greeted with smiles...we had a suite, cozy to be sure, but very comfortable. The breakfast was delicious and substantial. We'll go back! The mattress alone makes it a 5 star stay!!!

We and our friends stayed for 1 night -and it was a pleasant experience. We arrived very late in the night around 3 am, and hotel staff was corteous and helpful in helping us to rest. They offered late checkout and early breakfast and all could they offer. We loved stay and breakfast was nice.
