We had one night at this hotel on our journey. The lobby is clean and the front desk was well-staffed. We love Residence Inn, but this was not the best we have seen. The 2-bedroom unit was smaller than we have had before. The room was not as clean as we expected, either. Sticky surfaces. The pool was great -complete... More

Very very pleasant staff. Clean operation. Breakfast wasn't that great however. If you do stay here make sure you ask for a room that does not back up to the road. The road noise is a definite minus. Woke me up at about 4:00 with the trucks air braking.

Well appointed suite with every thing you need for an extended stay. The desk and internet are very functional, as is the seating area. We even had a gas fireplace which was nice.

This was our first time staying at a Marriott Residence Inn, and we were very pleasantly surprised. The staff was friendly, helpful, and professional. The room (one bedroom suite) was nicely appointed, with two large flat screen tvs' and a full (well stocked) kitchen. The complimentary breakfast room had a nice selection, and there was a 24/7 beverage service in... More

Beautiful, 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom suite! Loved the color scheme, and absolutely loved the kitchen, plus the continental breakfast daily, minutes from shopping, movies, dining! A great time was had by high school friends coming together again after 32 years!

Stayed here for 2 weeks for business and was very disappointed. Seriously, they served the breakfast sausages for dinner and called them Italian sausages!!
