My wife and I got a bargain-basement rate on this Residence Inn for two nights while we attended a wedding and other festivities nearby. For the money we paid, it was a fantastic deal - but don't be fooled: other than the extra amenities that all the rooms provide, the decor and furnishings for this hotel are on par with your Comfort and Sleep Inns. This Residence Inn should not be confused with a luxury hotel.
That said, we weren't expecting a luxury hotel, and the extra room was great for us to have to spread out and hang out all weekend. Our room, the lobby, and the grounds for the most part, were exceptionally clean and pleasant. We only needed to talk to a couple hotel employees during our stay and both were very nice.
The bed was the softest bed I have ever slept in. To all of you with a bad back, heed this as a warning, because you might be accustomed to sleeping on a firmer mattress. It was probably one of those "Hey, we're a Marriott, and this is the best bed you'll ever sleep in" mattresses. All I know is that I woke up hurtin'!
Breakfast was not great. We did expect a better breakfast, because they advertise their hot breakfast all over the place. Even when we ate there at 7:30am (breakfast from 7-10am), the food was starting to get cold because the attendant didn't have the burners on under any of the food, and especially the eggs, which were undercooked. My wife had the french toast and said it was tasty. We skipped breakfast the second morning we were there. Also, the attendant, who was a nice lady, was very talkative and insisted in initiating conversation with the few of us who were eating breakfast there. For us, this was a nuisance, as we would have rather been left alone before having caffeine!
Those two complaints are minor, though - we did enjoy our stay in this hotel and will return if we're able to negotiate a similar rate in the future. (Hint: the hotel is fairly deserted on the weekend since it's geared towards business travelers, who might stay during the week.) This hotel is close to many major roads in the area, such as the PA Turnpike.
