Forest Villas, which is only 18 years old but appears quite a bit older, reminds me of a "fancy" hotel of my childhood. It's built in a Mediterranean style and not for everyone, but I would stay again since it has what is most important to me: comfortable beds, quiet and cleanliness. Spending $20-$40 extra per night for things such as managers receptions, multiple breakfast options and indoor pools, which I do not use, isn't of value to me.
Excellent firm beds and soft pillows
Convenient location across the street from the Mall and TJ's (next door to the Residence Inn)
Friendly and pleasant staff
Clean and safe
Balconies in rooms
Piano music Sunday mornings
I understand there is a small gym, but I didn't look.
Basic breakfast in lobby (they always have eggs)
Dated appearance throughout the hotel and rooms
No microwaves in rooms
Outdoor pool only--no indoor
No thermostat that I could find (but there was a wall heat/cooling unit)
Breakfast is more limited compared to other large hotels
Families with young children may not feel as comfortable with the environment
If a quiet location and old fashioned comfort are what you like, plus a slightly lower cost compared to the large hotel competitors, the Forest Villas will suit you. If a modern, updated feel and extra amenities such as indoor pools, new decor, managers happy hour, waffle irons for breakfast etc..are valuable to you, then the FV may not be for you.
