This place was a great surprise. The room was really clean and the AC worked. The bed was super comfy, The shower was spot on!! The breakfast was very good and great selection of food. We only stayed 2 night and will be staying again shortly.

This was supposed to be a long term stay for my husband working in the area. Halfway through our stay due to many issues (the biggest being a smoker across the hall that we complained about numerous times and they did nothing about it except charge her the cleaning fee) - I was sick of complaining about the cigarette smell...

Dear Tracy S, Thank you for your feedback. I am sorry that you did not enjoy your stay at our hotel. Unfortunately on the several attempts that both I and other staff members made we could not make the determination that another guest was smoking in the room adjacent to you when we went to your floor.

Stayed in a 2 room suite. Was wonderful! Did find a liquid pill on the floor which could've been very bad for someone with little kids who may have picked it up and ate it.. But the room otherwise was very clean, nice, updated, quiet. I would definitely stay here again in the future! Fully stocked kitchen, nice bedroom, big... More

We arranged to stay here on and made advance reservations for our two rooms to be next to each other since we were traveling with my mother-in-law, who uses a walker. My brother-in-law actually came to the hotel to check things out. When we arrived, they had given one of our two rooms to someone and were less than apologetic... More

This Residence Inn is of the new style inner hallway design. It is very quiet. It is well-located just off I-65. There are many, many nearby restaurants. Hotel staff are very pleasant. This is a typical Residence Inn...predictably clean and comfortable.

When I am staying for more than a couple days, I like to have something that feels more like an apartment and less like a hotel. This one, like most of its kind, is clean and comfortable.
