“Worked Out Well”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 22, 2013

Very nice place. Had some problems with the reservation. Apparently there was a disconnect between Kayak and Staybridge. After a go-round of he said/she said with the staff I had to pony up extra to get the room I paid Kayak for. I was traveling with my mother to attend a funeral and they reduced the extra I had to pay because of that. If not for the reservation SNAFU I would rate the place amazing. Very clean and staff was very friendly

Room Tip: The staff suggests you book directly rather than use a third party to avoid problems.

Staybridge made my visit to Tyler a delightful experience. I was in Tyler visiting my aunt in the hospital and this hotel gave me a sweet mini vacation in the middle of a difficult experience. From the moment that I contacted them, they bent over backwards to do everything possible to accommodate all my numerous needs. First of all, my flight was very late. I called Staybridge and the receptionist made all the arrangements for a driver to be at the airport to pick me up at 10:00 at night. Each morning Jeff drove me to the front door of the hospital to see my aunt at the time I chose. The room was lovely. I liked the efficient layout. It had everything a person could want - upright refrigerator, dishwasher, dishes etc. The bed was amazing. So comfortable - I did not want to get out of it in the morning. The air-conditioning dial was so easy to use and I could put it at the exact temperature I wanted and it quickly adjusted to the perfect temperature. The closet was large with drawers to keep clothes. The pictures on the walls were very pleasing. All the rooms opened to a beautiful courtyard with a fountain in the middle. Tables were strategically placed on the patio and a very pleasing out-door television was built into a large stone wall. The pool and the hot tub were inviting. I exercised in the fitness room each morning and then ate a delicious breakfast that offered everything from 2 different types of eggs, to waffles, meat and fresh fruit. Each Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday they offer a different dinner in a lovely room with windows from floor to ceiling with a fire place. You can eat outside as well. All the meeting areas look lovely.
The best part of all for me was the people. The people were so friendly and welcoming. I would recommend this hotel to anyone. In fact I bought gift certificates for 2 nights for my cousin.

Room Tip: All the rooms looked good to me!

Staybridge got this right. Family stay (6 in tow) the room (2nd floor) was just right in size, being clean, friendly staff & easy parking, close by to all Tyler has to offer. Really good to see they have an eye for details and our stay was outstanding. I would recommend this as a Family Friendly place and you can get a very good breakfast before starting your day. Good internet, laundry machines should you need it, BBQ's as an option and of course the pool (would prefer an outside pool but everything else makes up for not having this one thing) We will be back. Good job.

Room Tip: I would always go for a upper floor but it would seem who might be staying there ie a team sporting...

I would have to recommend this hotel for business travelers. You have all of the living room and kitchen amenities. They have an outdoor grill and indoor pool. The hotel is nice and clean and still like new. Tripadvisor users are currently rating them the best in Tyler. I probably wouldn't agree with that, but I'm sure being new and clean with suite helps. I personally would pick either the Hilton Garden or the new Marriott Courtyard if I didn't have to have the suite.

Cons:
Ok, I have few cons, but this is Tyler, so you can't expect 5 star hotels.
1. You can hear everything outside your room. There is huge space in the floor under your door to the hallway. The walls also seem to be pretty hollow.
2. The service desk could use a little training. They seem a little uninspired. Maybe they could offer them incentives or something. They don't seem vested in this place.
3. Hot water seems to take way to long to come on. I was sitting wondering if I had turned the dial in the right direction.
4. The air condition unit seems to be fairly cheap. The loud kind that covers the tv volume, and it either stays on too long, or stays off too long.
5. Connecting to the internet is pretty bad, you have to call in for the password, and it disconnects you way too often. They may need to try a different service. I'm surprised they don't get bothered with calls from guest.
6. The location unfortunately is not a prime spot if you want to be near anything. Tyler is not too big, so you can get to most locations in 10 -15 minutes.
7. Breakfast was OK, but they should consider adding french toast or pancakes. Waiting 10-15 minutes at the waffle maker is the only option on busy days.
8. GM walking around in a t-shirt is not a good look. Just saying....

Would I stay hear again. If I had a business meeting here or a really good deal I would.
Would I recommend? To business travelers or families who would like a separate room and kitchen setup. With a nice and clean suite you can't go wrong. Just understand don't expect perfection.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on the top floor to avoid some of the noise. It gets bumpy on the below floors.

I attended a conference here recently and was quite pleased with this hotel. The room was well appointed and quite comfortable, and the staff was helpful and friendly. I especially enjoyed the abundant breakfast selection and the evening "snack" offerings.

Stayed here for 7 nights on a business trip. My girlfriend came along, and stayed at the hotel during the day. Was very nice and safe, with a very pleasant demographic of business people and families staying there. The facilities were great - decent indoor pool, beautiful patio with BBQs and an outdoor TV. Rooms were nice and new with lots of space and everything you need for an extended stay.

Hotel staff was great - very friendly and helpful. They even remembered my name after the first day or two.

Would highly recommend staying here.

Only downside is that there isn't anything within walking distance, so a car is a MUST. For most people, this won't be a problem.
