“Very comfortable”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 3, 2013

Spent one night on a personal trip and was pleasantly surprised with more than just snacks at happy hour. We had mushroom and swiss burgers and potato salad. Was very good considering all it cost was a tip. We got a handicap room because of my husband's knee surgery and the beds were great. Sheets very clean and crisp. Very nice room and amentities. No wear and tear on the furnishings and everything worked as it should. Would recommend first floor if you can get one. Never heard a sound from the room above us either, so they were quiet or there is good insulation. Breakfast was another good surprise. Two kinds of scrambled eggs, Canadian bacon, fried potatoes, biscuits and gravy, and the regular toasts, breads, cereals and fruits.
Cost was perfect - Costs more than the Courtyard across the parking lot, but if you're there Monday - Thursday and don't mind eating in, it's a good deal

Thank you for taking time to let us know how much you enjoyed your recent stay. We want you to know that you are welcome here and that you are not so far from home especially when it comes to a clean comfortable room and a hot breakfast. In addition, the social hour here is served with so much pride and care by our hostess. She enjoys preparing fun wholesome comfort food. The smells around 5:30pm, four nights a week bring our guests down to the Gatehouse to enjoy supper and friendly conversation.
Please join us again throughout the fall, great things are already in the plans.

This hotel was amazing. The rooms were magnificent, the food was great, and the hotel staff was very nice. The only thing that stinks is the stairs. But, suck it up and excercise a little. It is very close to everything near the SMU area. The neighborhood appears a little shady, but don't be concerned at the hotel.

Stayed at this hotel for the NCA Allstar Cheerleading competition at the Dallas Convention Center. It's about a 20 minute drive to the convention center if there is no traffic, can easily double or more if there is extensive traffic. I wish there was another one of these hotels closer to the actual convention center, then the stay would have been ideal.

Check in was seamless. I must comment on the staff at this location. Upon entering, we were greeted immediately by the front desk personnel and both people were extremely friendly and helpful. I asked if she had a 2 bedroom villa NOT facing the central expressway but she told me she only had 2 left and both were facing it. She did say that they had just put in new, more soundproof windows on those particular rooms so it shouldn't be bad. It was fine, and it was nice that she at least tried to get us rooms not facing the busy freeway.

Room Noise: During the day, the noise from the freeway is negligent, as you have other noises, TV, people talking, etc. But I can assure you, the noise from the expressway, even with the more sound proof windows IS loud. I took some Tylenol PM's so after getting to sleep, it never woke me up, however, there IS a lot of freeway noise..and one night motorcycles were racing up and down that freeway LOUD..and all 4 nights saw instances of ambulances and firetruck sirens, etc, various times during the night. There was also a freeway crash directly outside our room one night and the subsequent sirens and firetrucks, etc. So while it was not completely annoying, I can't imagine anyone saying they heard NO noise, when staying in these forward expressway rooms. Thankfully, I don't think there are that many rooms facing this way, and I definitely would ask at check in if you can possibly NOT have those rooms. The noise aside, it still wasn't enough to make me NOT like the hotel. But if you are wanting a quieter experience, request to not face Central Expressway.

Our 2 bedroom Villa was exactly as expected and true to the pictures they use on the website. Beds were extremely comfortable in both rooms, with what seemed like a memory foam type mattress, with 4 comfortable pillows. Bathrooms were single sinked, one bathroom had a tub/shower combo, the other bedroom only had a small shower. The other people we shared a room with said their tiny shower reminded them of the shower in their trailer, however, I had no complaints about the shower/tub combo in our bathroom except we ran out of hot water in the evenings to take a shower, which I thought was strange.

Maid service was good, rooms were clean each evening we arrived back to our room. We didn't really use the kitchen in our unit, but the few dishes or glasses that were used were washed and put away for us.

Couch was comfortable, there is a fireplace but as far as I could tell either it's not usable or they expect you to buy your own logs perhaps. Either way, we would never have used it anyway for heat. The only complaint I have about the heat was, it was a bit chilly at night during our stay and if the thermostat was set at 70 or below it seemed to only blow cold air, so we had to set the thermostat at about 74-75 degrees (much to high, really?) for it to then get warm in the room, causing us to then get up in the middle of the night to turn it down. It just seems like something is wrong with the thermostat in our particular room, but again...nothing terrible.

Free breakfast in the mornings was fine. Typical "free breakfast" fare. Eggs were a little runny, but edible. Wonderful yogurt parfaits won me over. There is a waffle station as well. They have a neat little coffee station available 24 hours a day that has tea, hot chocolate, and coffee. We stopped here every time we left and came home to grab a quick cup of coffee. They also have a "happy hour" type eventing Monday-Thursday with a free dinner in the evenings, which was nice. We arrived on a Thursday and it looked like it was BBQ'd hamburgers. I thought I even saw some bud light beer on ice in there.

Where they shine: The staff. By far, the friendliest, most helpful staff. They were happy to give us pre-printed directions to just about anywhere we needed to go. One day they even filled up our ice chest we used for food at the convention center. They provided towels for us late one evening for a quick visit to the jacuzzi and were always there to greet us when we came or went. They seemed genuinely interested in our competition, how we did, etc. Even the other patrons staying at the hotel all seemed so friendly, asking questions about how the girls were doing, etc. I haven't encountered such a "friendly atmosphere" in a hotel in a long time. Perhaps it's because it's more of an extended-stay type place. Either way, it was a true pleasure staying here and I would recommend it to anyone in need of a no-frills, no-nonsense place to stay within a decent distance of the convention center.

Room Tip: Ask for a room that doesn't face the Central Expressway (the 75). Ours did face this and you WI...

Your review was so helpful to so many guests who depend on Trip Advisor to make their travel plans. The areas that you mentioned are in the process of an update this summer. We have been working to update every aspect of our outdoor spaces. We have new sound proof siding in addition to the new windows. There are working fireplaces in most of the 2 bedroom suites. Thank you for mentioning our staff. They appreciate it when our guests mention the customer service they recieve. Please consider choosing our hotel again next year for your next trip to Dallas.

Stayed 1/2/13 - 1/12/13 on a work trip. This hotel is like having a small apartment. Computer desk, free wifi, couch, chair, footstool, coffee table, 2 flat screen TV's (one in living room/one in bedroom), fireplace, breakfast bar with two stools, everything in the kitchen except an oven with all the utensils and cookware you could need, separate bathroom, and a bedroom with a sliding door leading to a balcony. A huge breakfast spread is provided daily & Mon. - Thurs. beer, wine, & enough food to make a dinner out of is provided during social hour. The hotel has some cosmetic issues; my balcony had no light fixture & the cover was an empty frame. Also the slider door latch was floppy & hard to lock but the doors do have a security bar which made me feel more secure. I would love this hotel to provide soap dishes so I didn't have to open a new bar every day but they are green in their towel & linen changing management. They are pet friendly which isn't bad if you're not by a yappy dog. Rooms are fairly sound proof unless an elephant moves in above you and likes to pace the floor. There is a grocery store, drugstore, & restaurants across the street. Overall I would stay at this chain again.

Room Tip: Stay in a room away from the street side to help reduce outside noise.

Your review was a reflection of the facilities and service we strive to provide for our guests. Thank you so much. The evening social hour is so popular because of the fun, home style cooking prepared by our hostess. Breakfast is an abundant complimentary buffet each morning. We are in the middle of updating our exteriors to provide more comfort and relaxation for our guests. The results will be enjoyed by all as early as November. It is always exciting to be a part of a fresh perspective. The same team members are here; ready to make guests feel right at home. We look forward to welcoming you again soon.

I spent a couple of nights here while attending a family gathering. The room (apartment) was attractively decorated and nicely furnished. Entering into a living room or sitting area, there was a couch, recliner, coffee table and a cabinet with a large HDTV. There was also a generous desk and office chair with electrical outlets and a connection for Internet.

For privacy, the bedroom was adjacent, separated with double pocket doors. On either side of the bed were wall lamps, each with an electrical outlet, a chest with another TV, and a large closet with double sliding mirror doors. A sliding door opened to a small balcony overlooking the pool.

The kitchen area had a full sized refrigerator with ice maker, an electric cook top, microwave, coffee pot, toaster, sink/garbage disposal, and a full complement of cookware, utensils, dishes and cutlery for eating, and cabinet/drawer space for storage. There was also an ironing board, iron, and guest hair dryer.

The bathroom was nice, clean, and lacked nothing. Double access allowed guests to use without going through the bedroom, while bedroom access was provided for convenience.

Room Tip: Check in early. Parking is first come, first serve, though adequate.

Stayed here while visiting an exhibit at the Dallas Museum. Located right off the Central Expressway. We stayed on the second floor. This establishment has outside corridors. It seemed like a large apartment complex to me. There were several complex's to this large hotel. Parking is first come first serve. Traffic noise could be heard from corridors but once in your room it was quiet. No wifi in rooms. Our unit had two bedrooms, two bathrooms. One of the bathrooms was quite small. Public areas were fairly clean. The room itself was clean. A few exits North had a nice variety of restaurants and cinema complex. This location made it easy to get to downtown area. Breakfast has a nice variety and was good. Don't expect any discounts here.

My husband & I found the Residence Inn to be the perfect place to stay while visiting family nearby. Based on other reviewers advice we requested an upstairs room away from the freeway and were given one on the 3rd floor in Bldg#5 which was perfect - fresh, clean & quiet - even though our room looked out onto a side street. We were impressed with the planning that obviously went into the details of the suite renovations. The small space functions like a much larger one. The kitchen was fully supplied - my goodness - even a dishwasher and disposal. Breakfast included a wide selection from scrambled eggs to waffles, fruit and hot oatmeal. The staff was very friendly and helpful. We will definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: Bldg#5 is in the middle - Bldgs 6&7 are even further from the Central Freeway if you are worried...
