Very clean and easy to get to. Gets busy on the weekends. Recommend you get a room away from the highway. Can get loud. Do not count on the pull out to sleep on. The mattress in the pull out was extremely poor and not able to sleep on. Free breakfast was decent. The television in the bedroom is too... More

I spent 6 nights here at the end of Oct. I cannot speak highly enough about the staff. I had a couple minor issues with my room and the housekeeping staff contacted maintenance for me when I mentioned the issues. The front desk staff was friendly, helpful and went above and beyond with any requests. I was looking for a... More

Stayed while attending a family wedding. Can be noisy, as it is right next to a freeway. A little older and a little smaller than most Residence Inns. In our 1 bedroom suite the only bathroom was through the bedroom, it seems to me some properties have 2 bathrooms. Well maintained, good staff, good breakfast.

Really liked this hotel! I needed to check into the hotel early at least 2 hours early and they were more than willing to work with me. My room was beautiful! A 2 bedroom suite with a fireplace, full kitchen, and bathrooms in both of the private rooms.

After a sleepless night in a room facing the highway, at 6:30 a.m. the next morning I requested a room change farther from the highway.

It is a decent place to stay. We stayed in a studio. Our room was comfortable and clean. It had the things you would need for an extended stay - fridge, mini kitchen, and some seating space. It is kinda a no-frills place but the décor is streamlined and uncluttered. The gym was tiny. I think this would be a... More

Room was very comfortable however, the mattress was a little soft for my liking. It seemed to have a soft ( wore out) spot in it that I kept rolling into. Might be time to change out some mattresses. Front desk staff friendly and helpful. Would stay here again
