“Great stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 31, 2012 via mobile

Stayed for a weekend, this hotel was a great choice. For the money, it had as many or more free amenities as other hotels that were more expensive. The rooms were clean, and had anything you need for a short or extended stay. Full refrigerator, sink, dishwasher, great flat screen TV, sofa with pull out bed, wifi, stovetop. The free breakfast was great and well organized, make sure to take advantage. Location was good, right next to restaurants and very close to to gas stations, target, wall mart, etc. I will stay again in the future.

This hotel is rather small and quite near fair lakes, the best part is it has kitchen, housekeeping was excellent, I will definitely come back and stay here.

This property is renovated and looks nice. However, pretty tile and fresh carpeting do not make up for the lack of service/amenities. Stayed in a 2-bed suite. Beds in each suite make it hard to move around. Bathrooms are spacious enough. Very clean and well kept. However, the amenities you pay for at the Residence Inn (b-fast, dinner, sport court) are woefully declining. This RI only serves dinner Tues - Thurs. Dinner is reheated frozen or canned items. What happened to the "home cooked" meals and cookouts on the grill? No beer or wine served at this RI as well. Sport Court was falling apart which was a bummer for my family on a long, extended stay.

Room Tip: Avoid construction areas! Ask about where you room is located before you check-in!

We have stayed here several times as it is near family. The suite is nice and roomy, we like having a fridge and microwave. Separate sink and shower area is always a plus as it seems like we are always getting ready at the same time. The staff was helpful and friendly. Breakfast was the usual microwaved eggs, but if you are hungry enough you can find something you like. Clean quiet rooms. My only complaint was the black out curtains didn't really block much outside light. We will continue to stay here when visiting relatives.

The room smelled really clean but we were greeted with a large hairy bug in the tub immediately after checkin. We saw another bug later in our stay in the living room. Perhaps it was just a fluke. Otherwise the room was clean.

The biggest issue with this room was there was no wireless internet connection. Also the pet fee is outrageous ($150 flat fee for 1 to many nights).

Breakfast was good but short (only goes to 9am). Evening light dinner some nights.

No outdoor pool (like som Marriotts have) so the kids were a bit disappointed but I think the tennis court made up for this. The exercise room (which I did not use this time around) looks like the typical size.

The beds were comfortable. Modern TVs in the rooms. This residence inn has not been modernized like some of the other ones. Its decor is older.

The staff was nice.

Restaraunts are nearby (some within walking distance).

Ask for a room on the third floor. The building was constructed so that the first and second floors can hear every step the folks above them take.

We have stayed in a few Residence Inn's and this was a convenient location for a few nights. it's only a short drive to the Vienna metro station to Washington and there are lots of shopping options nearby. The area is tricky to navigate since there are a few streets called Fair Lakes (road, circle, etc.) but it is right off the highway.

The ants in the kitchen were not welcome visitors but overall it was a decent place to crash after full-days visiting Washington DC.
