“Average but Clean”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 16, 2011

It is starting to become more evident to me that the divide in 2.5 star properties is starting to widen. There are some that offer the same bedding as their 4 star properties, and other times you are stuck with hotels more similar to the Days Inn. When I check in to a Residence Inn, I am looking for the same comfort as the Marriott without the frills (fancy lobby, valet, bars, spas etc). This Residence Inn was average on all accounts, the bed had thin bedding and average furnishings. Slept ok, but would not go out of my way to return.

Great suites with all the amenities of home. Full kitchen, so very convenient. The public areas are a bit worn, but the good service and perfect rooms make it a good choice.

I booked into this hotel because of all the great reviews. However, I specifically noted in my booking that I was allergic to scents, and they told me when I booked in that the room was scent free. I guess whoever had checked it must have had a cold, because the room reeked of Febreze, or some similar spray-on chemical scent. They tried to vacuum the room to clean the scent up, but it didn't work....I managed two hours of sleep curled up like a pretzel in the back seat of my car. The only reason I didn't pack up and leave is that my daughter needed to get some rest. I will never stay here again.

After spending a vacation in Maine, we drove back to Michigan and needed to stop for the night near Toronto. The Residence Inn in Whitby was located right off the highway and proved to be a perfect stopover site for us. The hotel was very clean, the breakfast in the morning was nice, and the staff was professional and courteous. The only bad thing was that the ice maker in the refrigerator was noisy. I figured out how to turn it off after we were startled awake at midnight. It would have been nice to have instructions on how to turn off the ice maker. Otherwise, nothing bad to say at all.
