“Better then expected”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2006

When I pulled into the parking lot, I didn't want to get out of the car. It is obvious that people live in the hotel, and the clientele looked less then desirable. Still sitting in my car, I called all around and due to a convention, all hotels were sold out for the first two nights of my one-week stay.

I changed my reservation for two nights instead of five and reluctantly checked in. The room was spotless. The beds were very comfortable and it was very quiet.

I ended up staying all five nights and will stay again the next time I am in town.

...and it was spotless! I always judge the cleanliness of a hotel by how well they clean under the bed and behind the furniture. This place was very well taken care of. I figure if they take the time to clean in the places you don't see, then they must take even more care in cleaning the areas you do see!

I stayed at the RI for two nights on a recent business trip. The neighborhood is wonderful -- only a few minutes walk to shopping and restaurants. The room was spacious and as I said before, very clean. My only complaint was that the couch cushions were a bit worn out. The free breakfast buffet was wonderful. THe staff kept the dining area spotless and all the food well stocked. They also had free salad, an entre and snacks for dinner. That made it nice if you didn't feel like going out for dinner. It was buffet style, but it was actually very tasty food.

The front desk staff was super friendly and always went out of their way to greet you and to help out if I needed something.

I will definitely stay here again if I am in the area.

Stayed there for 10 nights over the holidays in a two b-rm unit. It was very disappointing for a RI so close to Marriott headquarters! Compared to other RI 2 b-rms, room was small. Hallway smelled. Couch was very worn; no syrup for the breakfast waffles for over a week and no cream cheese for bagels for several days. (Was told truck hadn't arrived; despite a grocery about a mile away.) Walls paper thin. No sign of security. Outdated, incomplete material distributed at desk about neighboring entertainment complex. Highlight was the gas fireplace controlled by a wall switch and the room's cleaniness. Giving this place two stars is being generous, but they were packed during our stay. Won't stay here again!!

This is a great Residence Inn. We stayed for 3 nights in a 2 bedroom suite. It had a full kitchen and living room. The staff was nice and the rooms were very nice. The outdoor pool and hot-tub were great. The dinners and breakfasts were excellent. I highly recommend this hotel.

I had a wonderful stay at this hotel. It was very reasonably priced, the staff were friendly and helpful, and the rooms were spacious (suites with kitchens), very clean, and quiet. A generous breakfast also was served in the morning (waffles, sauasage, biscuits).
