“Smells bad, first and last time”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 27, 2013

The hotel is located very close to the DFW airport - about 15 minutes. You can hear airplanes all day long through closed windows.
There is nothing to do around the hotel.
I was very surprised that after check in nobody means to escort me to the room and i have to walk an hour to find my room ( in another building).
The pool is for kids and there is no shade at all.
The furniture in the room was from my grandma's youth so i was shocked. Although the bed was very good.
The breakfast is very poor, no fruits, no vegetables, every day all the same.
No complaints about house keeping service- all was very good (in fact they ask to save resources so i didn't ask to change towels or sheets during 1 week).
When leaving i still was expecting mail to arrive so i asked at reception to decline all incoming packages - which wasn't done and they accepted my mail. This shows their "good" service and attention to the guests.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 16, 2013

I love this hotel. The room is fantastic. The bed is very comfortable with 5 pillows to choose from that are different. The bed is medium firmness so just right for me, not too hard. There is a desk to work on and best of all, a small kitchen with a breakfast bar. The room has plenty of space. I like the shower with the shower massager. And the breakfast is good - real eggs, hash browns, biscuits and gravy, sausage, fruit, oatmeal, walnuts, and more. The staff is friendly and helpful. The hotel is very quiet even though it is near the airport, about 12 min. away. It's in a business area. Restaurants are about 5 to 10 min. away with lots of choices. And the price on the weekend was great. I have my Reiki class here three times a year and it works out great for me.

Stayed here on a trip for work based on location. I'd give this 3.5 circles. Easy access in and out for location and for dinner as there is not much in the immediate area other than other hotels and Denny's so you will need to drive. Convenient to DFW. Front desk staff and breakfast staff were welcoming and pleasant. Usual Residence Inn breakfast fare. Small workout space and decent pool. Hot tub wasn't working. Third Residence Inn in a row where this is an occurrence. Having the extra room space over the box hotels is good. Room was quiet. No jet noise.

Room Tip: Get the full room over the studio if staying longer than one night.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 10, 2013

I spent 4 nights here because of it's proximity to my work assignment at DFW. Breakfast and dinner buffets are included but were not to my liking. The first breakfast I had was the last and I passed through each dinner buffet - on the way out to dinner.

All the employees I encountered - shuttle drivers, desk managers, porters, cooks and landscapers - were very friendly and helpful.

This is a fairly new 3 story building, very clean and well maintained inside and out. In the courtyard there's a barbecue grill, outdoor sofa and chairs, pool, and basketball half-court. All these facilities look brand new. The telltale evidence is in the carpeting, especially on the stairs. That is where the hotel is showing it's age. But this is not a deal-breaker.

The suite kitchens are compact and well-designed with 2 burner gas stove, microwave oven, coffee machine, refrigerator and dish washer. There are enough dishes, glasses and utensils for one person's daily needs. There was plenty of kitchen cabinet space in case I had done grocery shopping. Actually the hotel will handle the grocery shopping for you. If you give them a list in the morning the items will be ready later that day and the amount added to your bill.

The suite is one large room - not separate bedroom/living area. Enter with the kitchen on the left and looking straight into the living room. 2 large windows light up the room. There's a desk with data-ports for quick business or work set up on the right.

2 steps into the suite you can see the queen size bed on the left. The closet and bathroom are out-of-view until you reach the bed. The toilet/shower room is a straight line from the bed, past the bathroom sink and full closet.

The bed was very comfortable and 4 small pillows make it easy to get the sleeping, reading or TV-watching angle that is most comfortable.

The bathroom was perfectly clean and kept well stocked. The shower was excellent, extra large, great shower head and a curtain that was actually large enough.

I was disappointed that the "Market Room" where the hotel normally sells sundries and travel-sizes, was not well stocked. I was also not happy to have to drive over a mile to the nearest off-property restaurant.

Overall a nice place to stay as long as good food is a requirement.

Room Tip: I think the quieter rooms are the ones facing the parking area instead of the basketball court/pool.

Stayed at this hotel 2 days for a family wedding. Rooms were very nice, plenty of space and comfortable.
The staff was very helpful in sorting out rooms with multiple reservations for many family members.
Breakfast was great with a lot of good selections for everyone.
Very conveniently located near the airport and multiple major roads, freeways, shopping and restaurants.

I stayed at this hotel for one week, and my review is based on my daily experiences.

This hotel is very close to the airport with quick and easy access to I-635, TX 114, and TX 161. It is also very quick and convenient to get to the Los Colinas business district. The hotel really is centrally located in the DFW metroplex.

STAFF MEMBERS:
Out of several interactions with staff members, only one worker was pleasant and professional. He literally went out of his way to be of service. The rest of the staff left a lot to be desired as they were very curt, and at times, blatantly rude.

HOTEL ROOM:
My room (a 1 bedroom suite with living room and kitchen) was nice enough and met all basic needs. The bedroom and bathroom were clean, however, the living room had not been cleaned very well (there was a little bit of trash and a soda lid on the floor) and neither had the kitchen. The table had a food residue on it (which easily came off when I used a clean rag), and several of the dishes had not been cleaned. Also, the few dishes in the cupboard were VERY basic and quite old. Several of the cooking utensils were beginning to rust.

On a positive note, the bed was quite comfortable with plenty of pillows, and the shower had good pressure and plenty of hot water. The room had lots of available lighting and did not feel dark or dingy. I did not hear very much noise from any other guests. In fact, I would say that my entire stay was very quiet and calm.

IMPORTANT NOTE:
This hotel is DIRECTLY under the flight path for planes landing on 17L at DFW (or taking off on 35R). The landing/takeoff noise starts around 6:45am and doesn't really taper off until about 11pm. When the larger planes are landing, you can quite literally feel the noise.


SUMMARY:
If you are looking for a basic hotel that offers a small kitchenette and is conveniently located close to the DFW airport, this would be a good choice. With some staff attitude adjustments, better cleaning, and better kitchenware, I would have happily given it a higher rating.

Room Tip: Try to get a room on the backside of the hotel - it will be quieter. Esters Blvd is a busy street wi...

We knew that the drive of 25 miles through heavy construction from Fort Worth to a birthday party at an Irving Country Club was perilous. Not wanting to make the return trip after the party, we decided to check out Priceline.com. We got a very spacious room just a short hop away from the party on low-traffic streets. The room had a queen bed and a fold-out couch for $60. It was well worth the money!
They put us close to the lobby (liked that); so we just took a very short trip to the breakfast which was very good. Excellent assortment of pastries, juices, milk, pancakes, eggs and sausage, biscuits and gravy......all very good. All was very clean and the staff was quite helpful and courteous. The drive back home was so easy on a Sunday morning compared to what it is like on Saturday night....we were so glad we stayed at the hotel.
