I've stayed at this TownPlace Suites a few times, and this most recent stay was the best. It is located within a short drive of shopping, bases, and airport. A couple restaraunts are within walking distance (Buffalo WildWings and Longhorn). The hotel itself is non-descript from the outside - but is immaculately clean and well-kept. Located in a small shopping area, there is no real scenic view. The lobby is small but has complimentary local and USA Today papers, a small marketplace store with snacks and necessities chargable to your room, and a small dining and seating area. Fresh fruit was always available and a light breakfast was served every morning. The room was excellent for business travel, and would serve families traveling as well. The hotel is pet friendly so I ensured I wasn't in a room near a barking dog - that has happened to me at this hotel previously. The room was spotless and had one of the best hotel beds I've slept on. Rooms are fairly small without much room to move about - distinctly smaller say than a Residence Inn room, in my experience. Otherwise, the room was very functional and had refrigerator/freezer, dishwasher, and small 2 burner stove top. Pans, plates, and tableware are all provided. Fast and free wireless internet and tv with HBO. There is a small outdoor pool with gas grill for guests' use. The pool was open and looked inviting while I was there, but received little use. I like to run and there was a residential neighborhood behind the hotel I ran through. Western Blvd extension is main road in front of hotel, but it is 55 mph there and not a runner friendly roadway. Compared to the other hotels I've stayed at in this area - Fairfield Inn, Holiday Inn Express, and Candlewood - this is probably the best value. I was able to get the government rate, which is often unavailable at the other hotels. The staff is small - I didn't see more than 2 employees working most of the time - but very conscientious, courteous and helpful. If you're looking for a great value, and want to be able to fix some of your own meals, this is the place for you.
