I stayed a couple of nights here back in December. Looking over some of the other recent reviews, I was concerned about the quality. However, my room was just fine. There was no smell or mold or mildew of any kind. The bed was adequate, although not the best bed I've ever had in a hotel.
The staff was very accommodating to my needs and got me the room that I wanted.
Parking at this Residence Inn is not that great. You will be hard pressed to get a parking spot near your room or hall entrance. Apparently, there is some problem easements with the shopping center, because although you can see the Inn from the road, you have to go the long way around to get to it - up past the Inn, into the shopping center, turn left at the Olive Garden and go BACK out on the highway for 50 feet, then turn BACK into the hotel entrance and around behind the Courtyard to get to the Residence Inn. You can't even drive through the Courtyard parking lot to get there even though it looks like you can. Access is crazy. I finally just started coming in the back way and ignoring the "Do Not Enter" sign. Try this at your own risk.
Once you get into the Inn, life is fine. Also, the shopping center is very handy with some nice shops and restaurants. Try the Mongolian Grill.
