“Very Nice Hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 23, 2013

I tend to only stay at Marriott's and this one did not disappoint. You hear horror stories about Flint but the hotel was in a well lit, nice seemingly safe area close to the airport and right off the interstate. I only had a one night stay in a 2 bedroom + fireplace with my parents. Room was very clean, though carpet was showing signs of wear. Best perk was the full breakfast, included in prices. We thought it would be a complimentary breakfast but there were waffles, sausage, eggs, oatmeal, fruit, cereals, bagels/toast, salsa and assorted coffee and drinks. The staff was very pleasant.

My husband and I stayed here just this past weekend for a little get away and quick stop in-between destinations. The front staff was just amazing. Very attentive and even called up to our room once we were settled to ask if we needed anything further and to just ask if there was. She even advised the nice brewery steakhouse just around the corner from the hotel. Which was a nice treat. Breakfast staff were just as attentive and helpful, despite the huge slam she and she alone had just overcome! She was doing everything she possibly could to keep with the guest pace as she was by herself. Maybe add another breakfast staff when hotel is fully booked. Breakfast buffet consisted of biscuits and gravy, eggs and sausage all the contenintal breakfast foods, along with a waffle and oatmeal station. Excellent choices! The hotel itself was very welcoming and clean. Sadly though due to the kitchenette amenities (thought it was a plus) the halls smelled horrible with a bland of different ethnic foods. The room was great. We stayed in a studio king with a pull out sofa and kitchenette. The bathroom, shower, sink area - just great. Plenty of space for luggage etc. The reason for my 3 rating is the spa/hot tub was closed due to some ordnance, the smell of the halls we took with us whenever we walked in or out and the fact that there weren't a lot of retail, restaurant options in the vicinity. But all in all it is a nice little hotel.

The Flint, MI Residence Inn is very typical but the staff was great. The front desk was very pleasant and went out their way to help me. I forgot a few toiletries and was prepared to buy from their little sundries section but the clerk provided me my items free of charge. The breakfast was decent. Even, the cleaning staff was very pleasant in the hallways.
The rooms were very clean but the furniture is a beat. There was couch in my room that I didn't feel comfortable sitting on.
The clientele was a little rough and I did pass a woman with two big boxer type dogs in the hallway but I never heard a peep from them.

We were visiting friends in Fenton so we decided to stay in Flint. We bid on Priceline and our bid was accepted at the Residence Inn.

The location is easy to find and close to gas staions, shopping and restaurants.

Check in was a breeze. Our room was more like a studio. It had a small kitchen and dining table. A couch area, a desk, the sink was seperate from the toilet/bath area, large closets and a seperate spot for the bed.

It was large, clean and spacious.

They had a pretty good morning breakfast (tons of things to choose from). From fruit to fruit jelly and everything in between.

I would recommend anyone (and everyone) to stay here. Especially families with small children who may want to cook a few meals in the room to save some money.

Similar to a recent review, I'm in a room with a very bright floodlight shining directly into our room making it bright as day even though it's night time despite the heavy blackout shades.

It's 4am right now but the floodlights make me feel like it's noon outside.

I was too tired to complain last night when we got in around 10pm but I will be asking to move rooms today.

Spent the weekend of 6/22/2013 here with family. This is one of many stays I have had at this property. Overall the weekend was good and what I expect from the Marriott chains. The front desk staff was great on arrival, the room was well kept and the property was quiet. Some QC from the management staff on the housekeeping (bathroom sanitizing) is in order. Nothing bad, but it wasnt quite up to snuff for what I would expect here. Pool was great, breakfast was great and daily housekeeping was good.
