“not too impressed”
Reviewed May 21, 2012

we used points to stay here... and the room was not up to marriott standards.. cracked tile in the bathroom and an entry door that was a bear.... to get open. Very clean.. and the breakfast was great.. just not happy with the room. Also.. no wifi in the room... its 2012... not too sure what is up with that..............

Since I didn't stay here, I can't comment on the hotel itself, but if you are looking for help with an extended stay that will not be “consecutive” nights, don’t waste your time calling here. 

I am moving to the area and need a place to stay for the next 3 months, but they would not be consecutive nights, as I would travel home on weekends to see my family until my children are out of school for the summer. Hence, over the 3 months, I would need about 50 nights in a hotel. I asked the hotel if they could give me the same rate as someone staying 30 “consecutive” nights. They said they could not.

Actually, here is the exact email from the Asst. GM:




“Thank you for contacting me and considering our hotel for your stay. How many nights each week will you be staying? Did the associate explain the tax incentive for staying at the hotel for 30 or more nights? Sometimes staying consecutively can be more beneficial and actually save money than checking in and out each week. Unfortunately I cannot offer an extended stay rate unless you are actually staying consecutively for 30 or more nights. If you are only staying a couple nights a week you would pay whatever our standard rate would be for those days. I would be happy to run the numbers for you if you would like to consider an extended stay to see if it would be better for you. Just let me know what your typical number of days a week would be. Again, thank you for considering the Residence Inn Dublin. “



Thanks, but I've done the math, and so did you, and paying for 7 nights/ week and only staying 3-4 nights per week does not pay out.

Now compare that to the email I just got from the local Homewood Suites (Free dinner during the week and free wireless in the room as well):



“Congratulations on your new position! 

This will confirm the 30 + night rate I offered you for a one-bedroom suite with either a king bed in the bedroom or two double beds in the bedroom. Please let us know when you expect to have your family with you and we will be happy to give you a complimentary upgrade to a Master suite based on availability. This discounted rate is based on your expectation of staying with us most weeks from early April until early July 2012. “



Looks like I will be taking my Gold / Platinum Marriott status over to Hilton.

I love Residence Inns - one of my favorite places to stay for one night or a whole week. This property is a bit older, but maintained well. Friendly staff. Wish the rooms were a bit bigger, but they do have nice kitchens. Conveniently located next to I-270 and 161 in Dublin with easy access to historic Dublin, Tuttle Crossing Mall or the Sawmill Road area. Comfy beds. Great price (around $89 with AAA).

Room Tip: Ask for a room away from other guests with pets. That's the one downside - barking dogs in neig...

Very nice staff but old beds, loud fridge and if you have the room next to the reception, forget a good night of sleep as the airconditioning units of the main building are very loud and even made the room tremble...

We just arrived at the Residence Inn at Dublin - this place is great! The studio room is really big and comfortable. We have the family come over for an hour or so before heading out for dinner - 6 adults and 2 young children - and there is room for everyone. The workers are the desk were extremely friendly as well. Check-in took about 15 minutes purely because we ended up having a very fun conversation.
Love it and will definitely be back again!!!

Room Tip: Get a room overlooking the court. It is a small court, but it is better than the parking lot.

Stayed at this place for about two weeks while new house was being readied. Rented a two bedroom suite. Very nice outdoor pool and basketball/tennis court. Tasty breakfast buffet (included). On-site self-serve laundry. Pets allowed (additional $100 cleaning fee).

I have stayed in great Residence Inns, average ones, and very poor ones. This is slightly above average. We arrived late and food was hard to find as was the Inns location, but It worked.
