“Most comfortable stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 30, 2013

Great staff, breakfast and rooms. Can't wait to go back! Love having the option to cook in room.
Close to stores and restaurants. Pool wasn't open but exterior is very inviting. Log in fireplace was a nice touch.

Dear rick b

Thank you so much for the great review. We cannot wait to have you back!! The Residence Inn by Marriott is the only purpose built extended stay hotel in the market. Marriott put a lot of thought and effort in creating a great space, 50% larger than most hotel rooms, to ensure that anyone traveling for 1 day or 30 days has a great space to spread out. We do offer grocery shopping services for any of our guests that love to cook and are able to do so in the great kitchen space with full fridge, oven and microwave.

Our pool will be open Memorial Day weekend but next time please join us for a glass of wine by the outdoor fire pit and enjoy some great BBQ food. Social evening dinner is offered complimentary to guests Mon-Wed from 6pm-7.30pm. Look forward to seeing you soon.

Sincerely

Jillian Alps

Our experience at the Shelton Residence Inn was exceptional! The beds were comfortable, the room was clean and up to date. The staff at the front desk were polite and helpful. The breakfast was fresh and well stocked! We will definitely stay there again!

Dear marmcwen

What a fantastic review. Thank you so much. Everyone was thrilled with your review and we really appreciate you mentioning the staff and what great customer service you received. The hotel was renovated in Sept of 2011 and our management company Island Hospitality really believe in producing a great product. Housekeeping are very dedicated and yes, the selection of hot, cold and fresh breakfast items is pretty awesome too :)

Please let me know when you are traveling through Shelton CT again and I will make sure to meet and thank you in person.

I was scheduled to stay here for many, many weeks on business, but ultimately only stayed about 3 weeks. However, I would have been perfectly comfortable staying the entire time. The room (and bed) were comfortable, the shower was GREAT, and the layout of the room was perfect for all of the work I was doing. The location is very convenient - everything we needed was nearby - only minutes away. The staff could not have been more accomodating to my group, helping us add rooms and keeping us all nearby to each other. And, despite the major blizzard, they managed to keep clear the snow and keep the parking lots and sidewalks passable. I would definitely stay here again.

Dear Martha

We were so sad when you had to leave us. Happy for you that you were able to go home early but it was great having your group in-house with us. Three weeks went by so quickly but great that we all got to know you and your team. Our goal is to make sure everyday our guests are happy, comfortable and enjoy a well laid out room to both work and sleep in. We hope that you are able to stay with us again during the summer and enjoy the wonderful outside area with the pool, BBQ, fire pit and sports court! Thanks for being so patient during the snow storm and glad you were able to continue being productive and get home earlier to your family.

It was like having my own little apartment with a fireplace, couch, desk, a full kitchen with fridge, stove, microwave, dishwasher, and a nice marble counter top. There was plenty of storage space and a convenient sink area separate from the toilet/tub. Everything was clean and well-stocked. The breakfast was amazing. I would recommend this hotel for families as well as people traveling for business. The staff was very attentive. I have no complaints.

Dear toshamblin

Thank you so much for the detailed review of our hotel. You hit the nail on the head, we are perfect for extended stay guests that are here on project business, relocating or simply need more space to spread out. Marriott has done a wonderful job designing our Residence Inn brand and are quite happy that we are the only purpose built extended stay accommodations for traveler needs. The kitchens are great and with full size fridge, microwave and oven, the room is like a mini-apartment.

Please let us know when you will be traveling through the area again soon.

This is our second stay at this hotel. It is set up more like a motel with individual top and bottom units accessed by stairs, and to get to the lobby you have to go outside. Love the fact that the room had a fireplace, and they encourage you to use them. Have not been in the summer months, but from our room we say a nice pool and a volley ball court. Traveled with my elderly parents, and they accomidated them by putting them ground floor right next to the lobby. Since my neice lives in Shelton, this is our "go to" place to say! Friendly staff, and very clean rooms.

Dear lamp561

Welcome back :) I am so glad that you came back to visit and reviewed our hotel. Our guests do love the condo feel of the guest rooms, since we are purpose built for Extended Stay guests our rooms feel more like apartments. The fireplaces have been a bit hit this winter with all the snow we have had. Out of our 96 guest rooms, 76 have fireplaces which is so an added bonus to our wonderful facility.

We do hope you can visit us in the summer months when our guests are able to enjoy the outdoor pool area, our Fire Pit and BBQ area, and as you mentioned the great Sports Court. Our guests enjoy playing volleyball, badminton, basketball during the long summer nights.

The hotel staff were thrilled you mentioned their great customer service and we love that this is your go to place to stay which in Shelton CT!

Look forward to seeing you again soon

Sincerely

I was in Shelton for business and managed to pick the weekend of the blizzard. It snowed 40" overnight! Needless to say we were snowed in. The staff really made what could have been a horrible experience an excellent one. They repeatedly called the guests to make sure everyone was okay and had enough food. Sat night they prepared dinner for everyone. And when it came time to dig out the cars, the staff was there 100% helping everyone. No one was left on their own. Sun when we were 'free' they hosted a pizza party so no one had to drive for food if they did not feel comfortable on the icy roads. I have stayed here before and will continue to stay here when in Shelton.

Dear Deirdre V

Thank you so much for your review. There aren't many words to describe how well the entire staff on duty handled this major storm. As Marriott is one of the top leading brands for customer service training, I believe this hotel exemplified and solidified that recognition. We so look forward to seeing you in the area again. Hopefully you will be able to visit us in the summer when our pool is open, BBQ grill is in full swing, and you are able to relax by our fire pit with a glass of wine served during our social evening hours M-W 6pm-7.30pm!!

I LOVE JR (Dumars?)!!! JR was an amazing man, he was funny, polite and a very good employee. He found us the best room available although it was not the original room we were booked for and was very friendly while doing so. He remembered us from the week before when we stayed here and made me feel all fuzzy inside! Overall a superb experience. (Sasha was pretty cool too!)

Room Tip: Get the penthouse!
