“Excellent Value”
Reviewed October 8, 2008

I was in Raleigh on business for a few nights and brought the family (wife, 2 young children) with for the first time. We chose the Residence Inn because of the inexpensive 2 bedroom suites with kitchen. The property did not disappoint.

The Residence Inn is not known for its amenities, and you won't find many here; just comfortable, clean, large suites in a secure, comfortable setting.

I asked for a room near the pool at check-in and am very happy I did as the nearby highway noise would likely have been problematic otherwise. The 2-story, 2-bedroom suite was more than enough for us for 3 nights or (maybe) even 3 weeks. The free breakfast every morning was fantastic, and the grounds provided a nice area for walks with the little ones when needed.

My only complaint was that the room smelled slightly of moth balls (my wife thought maybe it was new carpet smell) and the tub had some mold or mildew in places not easily reached (or seen).

Thank you for your comments concerning your stay at the Raleigh Residence Inn. Our guests consistantly appreciate the value they receive from Residence Inn. I am glad that you enjoyed the complimentary breakfast each morning. The slight odor that you experienced in the room was from the newly installed granite countertops. The odor has since cleared. Thank you for bringing the tub mildew to our attention. It has been corrected.

My colleagues and I booked a stay at the Residence Inn while visiting Raleigh on a business trip. I must say this hotel was delightful. It was very unassuming on the exterior, but once inside it was clean, tastefully furnished, and provided the ambience of a resort stay. Not only were the rooms and toiletries terrific, the hotel staff (including housekeeping and food staff) were efficient, helpful and always greeted you with a smile. If I find myself in Raleigh, NC again - I will be certain to stay with the Residence Inn Marriott

  • Liked — Provided a full breakfast and nearly as full dinner.
  • Disliked — Location was only convenient for business travelers.

Residence inn was an older facility nestled right next to highway access. The facility is an old apartment complex that's been changed to a hotel. For extended stays is works well but check the mattresses before booking a room. Ours were uncomfy. ONe nice amenity is the free breakfast which is actual breakfast. It comes with your stay.

I stayed at Residence Inn with my husband, son and mom, March 20-March 23, 2008. The buildings are like apartments. There are no elevators. We had a penthouse suite. Upstairs it has a loft bedroom with a bathroom, closet, desk and TV. Downstairs is a fold out murphy bed and a sleep sofa. There is also a bathroom, closet, TV, desk, table for 4 people and a full kitchen. The suite was clean but the decor was a bit outdated.

The breakfast was great. It included eggs, pancakes, waffles, sausage, grits, fruit, cereal. It was nice not spending money on breakfast. Also, Monday-Thursday they offer a light dinner such as salads, make your own deli sandwiches, and chicken drumetts.

There is a nice basketball court and a swimming pool.

The location is great right off of I-440. There is a Walmart about 5 minutes away and McDonalds & Burger King.

The staff and service was great.

I will definitely stay here again.

As other reviews noted this place is a little dated but rooms were clean and decor not bad. This is one of the "original design" Residence Inns, campus of fairly cheaply constructed frame buildings. Grounds were kept up but wouldn't want to stay here in bad weather, have to walk a ways to get to your car or to the gatehouse as they call it. Nice enough welcome light meal and snacks in the evening and breakfast was fine. Mattresses are not up to usual Mariott standard but I slept OK. This is a bargain compared to the nearby Courtyard but definetly not as nice. One restaurant and a Hilton within walking distance, many more just a close drive. The hotel is right off the beltway, easy access to North Raleigh or minutes to downtown.

  • Liked — Location, meals

Stayed one night at the Residence Inn on a business trip. First time ever in a Residence Inn. I was travelling with 2 other business colleagues. We each were upgraded to a large suite which was really large. Upstair bedroom, 2 full baths, sitting area with fireplace, kitchen, slept 5-6 including sleeper sofa, desk/dining area. Lots of room. Wish I was with my family instead of just myself.

I liked my room. One of my colleagues didn't like his suite. Said the bed was too hard.

The hotel staff was very cordial and helpful. The breakfast was OK, not great. Hot food was a plus. The temperature in the room was quite warm, probably because temps in Raleigh hit 70 degrees in early January. The breakfast area isn't that large.

Hotel showing its age, but still an OK place to stay. Location convenient. Easy access to the beltline around Raleigh and close to good restaurants.

Stayed January 2008
