We have stayed at the Topeka Residence Inn several times and return largely based upon the reasonable rates and friendly/accommodating staff. The breakfast is good and ready on time (and usually even before the actual “serving” time – which is key for our early starts), the pool is clean, and the kitchens are very nice. Like in most Residence Inns, the larger suites have a large stove that can actually be used to cook on versus the smaller burners that are not very useful. Several times I have been upgraded to larger rooms without asking – this is a great policy and I really appreciate it. The manager really seems to make things work smoothly for Marriott Rewards members. My only concern is that the building could use an update as the bathroom paint/ceiling look worn, there are scuffs on many walls, etc. This does not diminish from the overall cleanliness of the hotel, but it should be in line for an update soon.
