We stayed here for 4 nights in April. Desk staff was knowledgeable and nice. Room was clean and ready to go at check in. Continental breakfast was just fine--cereal, toast, bagels. We stayed on the 3rd floor and yet never heard any footsteps from the 4th floor. We never heard any noise from the hallway. Despite being right off the highway, the road noise was low enough that it didn't bother us while we slept. Very convenient to highways. The kitchen was well equipped with real silverware and pots and pans and a full-size fridge and freezer. Also had a microwave and dishwasher. Would definitely stay here again!

This hotel was very nice. Our room was large, they already had a cot and extra towels we requested in our room. It was very clean the beds were comfy. Kitchenette was stocked with minimal dishes and appliances worked well. Lots of choices for breakfast. Had a weird closet door that blocked doorway to bathroom when it was open, but the closet shelves were plentiful. Plenty of pillows. Staff was very friendly and helpful.

Nice, big, CLEAN room. Friendly staff. Breakfast is continental, but you have a full kitchen. Pool was good. Exercise equipment was in good shape. Walked across parking lot and got Texas Roadhouse to go. Loved fully equipped kitchen w table for 4.

We stayed here three nights, two using rewards points and one purchased. First let me say the place is nice and clean and staff was very friendly and helpful. The rooms are well equipped for extended stays with full refrigerator, two burner flattop stove, microwave, dishwasher and full cupboard of dishes and kitchenware. The room was nice size with acceptable bathroom.

Now the shortcomings - sofa was very uncomfortable, room layout was a little strange, the only mirror was over bathroom sink, pillows on bed were not the most comfortable, back door of hall closet opens into bathroom--just a little strange--breakfast was extremely continental-basically toast and cereal, no real lobby, just uncomfortable breakfast seating, interstate noise on north side. I also thought the rates were strange and overpriced. Listed at $144 but when questioned, dropped to $99.

This Townplace Suites is an very nice affordable hotel. The check-in process is great, the room very comfortable and it even has breakfast, which some Townplace Suites don't offer. It's only cereal, toast, mufffins or bagels, juice, coffee and yogurt but it was presented nicely and got us on our way. I would recommend this hotel!

Room Tip: Ask for a room on the side of the hotel that is away from the freeway.

We've stayed in lots of Marriott properties, but the TownPlace Suites are unique in their ultra efficiency. We loved all the storage and the great mini kitchen. This happened to be a three night stay so we really unpacked and made ourselves at home. I agree with the other reviews, breakfast was limited. My husband is diabetic and there really wasn't an option for him. We have family in the area and we'll definitely stay here again, this time we'll make better use of the mini kitchen. We didn't have a problem with the traffic noise even though we were on the interstate side of the building but it's definitely something to be aware of if you're a light sleeper.

This hotel has spacious rooms, clean and well kept. Our only problem was the placement of the TV, which was on the right side of the bed. We had to move the table on an angle in order to be able to see it from the bed. Breakfast was ok, nothing special. Service was very good and accommodating. We would stay there again.
