“Friendly staff, Clean, comfortable rooms”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2014

We rented a two bedroom suite for our daughter and friend and us (her parents). The suite was immaculate, smelled fresh, had comfortable furniture and beds, good showers, and was quiet. The staff was friendly and helpful. When I asked for dinner recommendations, was given a printout with several nearby choices; the restaurant we picked from the list was outstanding (O'Keefe's). The gym was not the best -- treadmills were outdated and it was a bit musty. Walked to nearby Rita's for dessert later that evening and felt very safe. Parking was plentiful and close by. We didn't have time to use the pool. Watched Kentucky beat Wisconsin in basketball; each bedroom and the living room had a large flatscreen TV. I would recommend this hotel. It isn't fancy, but nice and priced right.

Room Tip: We were on the 5th floor near the stairs (above the gym). This was a quiet location, except for the...

We recently stayed at the Residence inn during a trip to see the Phillies for Spring training. We had a two bedroom suite and I couldn't believe how spacious it was. Two large bedrooms each with its own full bath. Perfect for our family of 4. The rooms were clean and in wonderful condition. We ate breakfast on the late side one morning and the woman who was working the dining area did a great job restocking the food items and bringing guests what they wanted even though the hours for breakfast were over. When we checked in the gentleman behind the front desk was also very friendly and helpful. Overall, a great choice if you visit clearwater. We'll be back!

We had a two bedroom unit, and no complaints. It was safe, and fairly quiet. The furniture could have been more comfortable though, and the maid service was just OK. There were a lot of youth sports teams there during our stay, and breakfast and the elevators were very crowded. Overall it is OK, and I would stay here again. Theres not much in the immediate area though. Clearwater beach is only a few miles away, and I would stay there instead next time.

Room Tip: It would be a lot quieter on the north side

I had never stayed at a Residence Inn and perhaps I should of done my homework a bit better on them. Just returned from a 4 night stay. We were in a studio room with a king bed. The hotel was completely full so no upgrades were available. It was full of different kids sports team on 2 of the nights.
The room was spacious - offering a kitchen and pull out sofa area. However we had some issues in the room. In the bathroom -- the shower had several large cracks in the tile on the wall and the shower curtain rod was broken. We mentioned to the front desk that all we needed was a screw to fix the rod. But it never came nor was it ever fixed. So when we showered the floor got totally soaked. I wouldn't really have minded just wiping up the water -- however towels were sparse. Each day we had to search for our "maid" to get new ones. Washcloths were hard to come by -- in fact I used a dish towel one morning from the kitchen.
I thought we would get daily maid service -- replenish towels -- change the sheets -- clean the bathroom. However that is not the case. I was told they only change the sheets every 4 nights -- so we only stayed 4 nights -- so we normally would not get clean sheets but we did manage to get fresh ones on the 3rd night after going back and forth with the front desk. They never vacuumed or wiped the counters or anything...which I find odd.
In reading previous reviews about the Front Desk -- they seem to solve everything. However anything we asked them -- they seemed dumbfounded. One night we got stuck in the rain and we wanted to use the dryers to dry our jackets. Well you need quarters to run the dryer -- you would think they would have a little machine in the laundry room that would make change for you -- but they don't. So I went down to the front desk and they were going to have to "send out" for quarters -- I only needed 8 -- well we never got them. We also had an issue with our AC. It wouldn't go down past 70 degrees which is warm for us. I called the Front Desk and they said they would send someone from Maintenance up...we waited a bit then someone from the front desk came up and showed up how to reprogram the system.....we were happy however in the middle of the night it went back up to 70 . . . .so we asked them again the next day -- however no one ever came. A few other things with them however I won't bother to mention.
This hotel also does not have any restaurant or lounge and you cannot walk to anything from here -- you definitely need a car....it's on a busy street with nothing around. There is however a nice park next door that we did walk.
As far as the breakfast is concerned -- we couldn't get near it with all the kids that were staying there for their Lacrosse game. No big deal though.
So in closing I don't think the Residence Inn's are for us !

The hotel is very nice but what makes it amazing is the staff. My husband works for the airlines and I am a travel agent so needless to say we travel several times a year. We have never been treated so well by a hotel associate! I have to acknowledge Kathy who is the head of housekeeping. The Residence Inn is so lucky to have her on their staff. We were there with our 8 year old - Magen sends hello - and Kathy went way above and beyond when it came to making our stay amazing. She is a special gal and has a wonderful attitude. We had such a wonderful time their that I just finished booking our stay for this coming October.
Our room was spacious and very clean. I am picky when it comes to cleanliness and I have nothing negative to say in that regard.
We cannot wait to return!!!!!

Greeted at check -n by Randall. He was extremely pleasant and efficient. When he discovered our plans he proceeded to obtain directions and had them waiting for us when we came down from our room. Room was clean and well maintained. Great location for access to all local amenities and sites.

Just came home from staying a week here for Spring Training. Pleasantly surprised by the nice size of the room, king bed, sitting area and kitchen. Room was very clean and comfortable. Free wifi and continental breakfast which had a good selection of food. Pool area is a bit drab, but it's just a 5 minute ride to the beach. This hotel is very family friendly and did not have rowdy spring breakers. Staff very friendly and front desk always helpful with a question .A special shout out to Christine who works in housekeeping on the ground floor. What an amazing person! Always a kind word to everyone she meets. She is dynamic and energetic. I need to take a page out of her book on her dedication and genuine cheerfulness in her job. She is truly a special person! Can't wait to come back next year!!
