We have stayed with a few Residence Inns for the convenience of the two rooms while traveling with toddlers. We went to mystic for an overnight trip with our 2.5 year old and 6 month old. A few months ago we stayed at the Residence Inn in Langhorne, PA for sesame place, so I will compare the two a bit.
This suite and bedroom unit was definitely smaller than ours in PA. A little disappointing because we need the room with two pack and plays. It sufficed. While checking in I was told that we did not have a pack and play reserved in our name, even though we had requested one while booking online. I suggest you call to confirm because this happened to us in PA, too. Luckily, a half hour after checking in, maintenance brought one to our room. Phew!
The room was clean and had all standard amenities. The bathroom was clean and not run down. I really cannot complain about anything!
The pool area was very small. We went swimming after dinner and it was just the four of us. It was fine until 7:30 when about 15 kids descended on this tiny area. No lie- cannon balling and screaming and all. That was our cue to leave. When you see how small the pool is you'll realize how crowded it is with 20 people in there.
The next morning we had the complimentary breakfast put on by the hotel. It's laid out in a tight area and the line was long. Tough setup for families, in my opinion.
We went to the aquarium that morning before checking in at 2. We called ahead to see if we could arrive earlier than the 3 pm checkin and they said it was fine. After naps, we walked the village shops- very cute area if the weather is nice! We ate at the Pita Spot for dinner. It's small, but we were there T 5:30 and got a table right away. The next day we did the seaport (not great for our family bc our kids are too young to enjoy it) and lunch at Sea View and then drove home.
Overall, a nice trip. I would definitely recommend Residence Inn to families who need to space.
