“Great stay, great management”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 11, 2012

I reserved a two bedroom suite online and got there to find out a computer glitch allows me to reserve this type room in a Staybridge that has none of them! The manager apologized profusely and gave us three rooms for the price of the one of reserved. They checked to be sure we were satisfied. Also, the breakfast is the best of any buffet. For other oatmeal fans, they have the brown sugar, walnuts, and raisins beside the pot of very good real oatmeal. I will choose Staybridge again because of this experience.

This is a good hotel with clean rooms. It is not fancy, but doesn't pretend to be. They have a fitness center that can be accessed 24 hours a day. The equipment is not very good, but it is relatively new and it works. The people at check in were very nice. There was a large group of off road Jeep drivers there the night I was, but the building never seemed all that crowded.

I travel to Oak Ridge at least 4x/year, always for about a week at a time. I started these business trips about four years ago, right after this Staybridge opened. I almost always stay at this Staybridge, so I've really seen its life cycle.

This hotel started out beautifully, as all new hotels tend to. Everything was pristine. The cool aqua-brown color scheme of the room decor was relaxing and almost chic. The putting green was flawless. The breakfasts were on par with your average European hotel.

But over time, the hotel has really started to slip. Carpets are getting stained. Bed sheets and decorative pillows are looking very worn. The putting green is bubbled and collects pools of water. The exercise room was like a sauna this last trip. And the breakfasts are just inedible--sour fruit salad no matter what time of year, questionably puffy omelets, scrawny bacon like at Subway, and pretty lifeless muffins.

The Staybridge is still the best place to stay in Oak Ridge--and the ONLY place I'll stay in Oak Ridge. The hotel gets extremely busy Monday-Thursday, but is pretty dead on weekends. Business traveler central.

Other pluses:
+ reliable and decently fast WiFi
+ walking distance to Kroger and a number of restaurants
+ free beer & dinner a couple nights a week!
+ flat screen TVs in every room
+ nice theater room for guests to use

The staybridge suites surprised me by providing a very nice experience. For being lesser known than Hampton inns, this was actually a much nicer
Hotel. The breakfast buffet was good, although some of the fruit was canned. As for the weekly buffet dinner, it could have been better but it did include free beer. The rooms were very spacious with two tvs and a kitchen area. The kitchen was well appointed but the room lacked ventilation to handle it. When we tried to cook one day, we were shocked to find that the windows did not open and the fan only disperses the fumes across the room ( not out Of the room). If the staybridge suites installed opening windows and a better stove ventilation fan, I would say the hotel is perfect. The staff here are incredibly courteous and friendly. They are prompt to respond if
You have a problem. While the maid service staff are extremely nice, the hotel does not have them completely clean the room. They say that they only tidy up the kitchen and make the bed. However, they did go beyond the hot service usually and they tidied up the whole room. The staff at the hotel is really very nice. I did not use it but the laundry machines were free. There is also a pool, gym, meeting room and movie room that were all
Very Clean. The lack of kitchen ventilation was really my only problem, if you don't cook the hotel is perfect

clean, breakfast every morning, QUIET, full suite room. Was there 2 weeks and highly recommend. no complaints whatsoever.

Even the gal that cleaned the room, said' we are just happy to have you here"
The first day, the computer chair in the room wouldn't raise or lower (was too low for me), so I asked about that, turns out they are all that way. The desk clerk gave me a chair from the lobby that was higher.! right then! Laundry facilities, ok pool and workout room.
