Had a recent two-night midweek stay on points. Really liked this property and I did not encounter any of the problems some other recent posters have written about. Marriott has an annoying practice of slapping Category 5 ratings on midrange properties in touristy locations (I'm talking to you, Durango Courtyard), but this is only a Category 3 property and so a very good award value.
The property is clean and modern and can't be more than a few years old. My room was comfortable and quiet. One mistake I made was assuming my room would have an oven -- it has burners and a microwave, but not an oven. So no frozen pizzas here. (TownePlace Suites have ovens, but I guess most Residence Inns don't.)
All the staff I encountered were pleasant and responsive. Pool had plenty of towels, although at least once a guest came in, took some towels and left without using the pool, so any lack of towels might not be the hotel's fault. The breakfast was among the best I've had for a hotel of this quality level, and the buffet was well tended to.
There are a few dining options in the adjacent shopping center, and the Target has groceries. The roads in this area can be confusing, so try to learn the "back way" to get to downtown Glenwood Springs if you plan to go between the hotel and the various attractions.
Would not hesitate to stay here again.
