After spending plenty of time at the downtown Marriott on Joseph st, I needed a place where I could cook more meals while in S. Bend. I also wanted to save some money. While I enjoyed having a kitchen, here are some of the pros and cons to staying at the Residence Inn.
Pros: Free internet. Free Breakfast. Better temperature control. More family feel. Ability to cook food yourself. Couch with pullout means that you can fit more people if you have guests. More family type activities and nature nearby. The rooms are very large with a kitchen sink, microwave, stove top burners, refrigerator/freezer, and provides cooking pans, utensils, and basic cooking items. Nature rich setting with birds and places that are scenic for walking.
Cons: Much louder because it is cheaper for families. So many kids running around that I asked for another building because being near the basketball court sucked for me as I was trying to get work done, and not on vacation. The housekeeping only comes in every 2-3 days on a long stay. That was unexpected, but once you have the schedule and know what to expect, it isn't bad. My trash overflowed a few times and I had to take it to the dumpster myself. If there is a holiday, it will be even longer until housekeeping will come to clean the room. The television is quite old and sometimes very blurry with bad signal in some of the rooms.
