“Great stay for the whole family”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 4, 2013

We visited in the middle of two conventions and a remodel. The hotel staff were very pleasant and helpful. Fresh coffee available all the time. Cookies in the afternoon and a fab breakfast buffet every day with changing menu features new on the TVs and local newspaper. Outdoor pool, Jacuzzi and tennis court. We loved our stay.

Location was great. Had a delay on check in at 5:00 pm. Room furniture is a bit dated. Tub was refinished but had chips in the finish that made the tub look like it was stained. Was there on business for just one night. Staff was friendly and did grant me a late checkout. Bed was comfortable.

Room Tip: Get a room near the front of he hotel. It's a bit of hike to the back. No real views to speak of...

This is a small, cozy Residence Inn with outstanding customer service. Staff was always courteous and helpful. Our family loved'happy hour' time. Certainly not the Ritz, but decent food choices for kids-and plenty of adult beverages flowing. Exactly what we needed after a day of theme parking!

I cannot praise this hotel enough.

Our flights were cancelled and got there 2 days later than we planned. We were a bit stressed out but the staff made us feel a home rightaway. Jesse was waiting in reception to welcome us and Kimberley then surprised us too.

I would not go anywhere else and hope to return this year.

The hotel have been completed renovated and looks super.

Breakfast and manager reception great. Location great

A big thank you to Soli and our old (not so old) friend Jesse and all the staff who give a great service all the time with smiles on their faces.

All the staff reception, ,housekeeping, maintenance and breakfast/ evening reception

When we were leaving Soli and Jesse came out to say goodbye and Jesse then came out to the mini bus with us to see we were alright going to the airport

My sister-in-law is going again on the 17th January with her son and daughter-in-law

thank you alll again for making our stay a wonderful experience.

All good wishes for 2013.

We drove around so this hotel was good for us bearing in mind we could take off pretty much anywhere we would want to...
The hotel setup is like a studio apartment hence "Residence Inn" a great way to cook your own food especially for long vacationers.
The breakfast was good and complimentary... nothing to complain about.
The staff friendly and the distance from the attractions is not much.

Very friendly front desk staff upon our arrival. The breakfasts each morning were very good and the breakfast staff was outstanding...very friendly and always had a smile on their faces. A first for us the manager came around to each table in the morning to introduced himself and asked if there was anything he could do for us. In fact, he walked around with a coffee pot asking if we wanted refills. Never had that kind of service before. Front desk staff had good recommendations for area restaurants. Would not hesitate to stay here again.

You can tell that this hotel values a friendly, interactive, helpful experience with every guest. From the hotel manager to the cleaning staff, everyone is very helpful and friendly. This hotel rivaled my stay at a 5 star resort.
Great location, walking distance to good shops & restaurants on I-drive.
Only complaint, and it's only a small one, is that the TV feed in the room are awful coax low-def and it's hard to watch on the really nice HD capable TVs.
