“Worst Residence Inn”
Reviewed December 23, 2010

Please do not base your opinion of other Residence Inns from this one in Fort Worth. It is very outdated and the bed needs replacing. The mattress is old and very firm. We went to Target and bought a mattress pad to cover the gross bed. The kitchen has appliances from before I was born, they are really old. The dishes provided are also old and didn't appear to be very clean. The bedside tables, kitchen table/desk, and coffee table all were dirty and had to be scrubed with Clorox wipes to get the caked on junk off. The linens on the bed are old and I suggest if you do stay here to bring your own bedding! The rooms are a little smaller than what I have seen at other Residence Inns. The entire room is just dated and in need of a good scrubing. The walls are dirty, the doors are dirty, the lamps are dusty. They just need a good painting and scrub down. I don't even want to think what is really on green carpet that you can't see...yuck! The shower head had a lot of build up on it and wasn't the best shower but it has water pressure, but we ran out of hot water fairly quickly. I will not stay here again. If you are needing a hotel in this area of Fort Worth, stay across the stress at the Courtyard. One plus about this hotel is the free internet and also that it looks like apartments and they are all outside units and the first floor has a little patio. Our daughter liked being able to go outside and look around and I had the comfort of knowing it's fenced so she can't go far. During our stay it was fairly quiet, we could hear the people above us walking around but never heard any traffic noise and we were near the road.

Have not stayed in a worse Residence Inn.

The staff is fine, but there is nothing they can do to outweigh the need for money to put in to redo the beds, the furnishings, the bedding itself, everything!

The first room smelled heavily of smoke, the second of mildew. I finally gave up and just decided to spend as little time in the room as possible.

The bedding was literally frayed and coming apart at the edges. How is that for a nice comforter to curl up with at night-scratchy and all the way across coming apart at the seam.

I have never seen rooms at a hotel so in need of refurbishing and this place is not a $60/night gig.

I love to suggest places, but this is a No No No-Don't Go!

Stayed here for about a month. This hotel is of the older "apartment style" Residence Inn variety. Nice in some respects for feeling like you have your own space. Some units actually have an oven, which comes in handy based on what you are cooking. Most studios are downstairs, and due to the construction of the buildings you can get a lot of floor noise from the people above you. If you are going to stay in a studio make sure to ask if an upstairs unit is available...especially on the weekends when more families are staying due to the proximity to the Zoo. The Zoo is nice, as well as the Botannical Gardens. Also there is a path along the river that leads to Trinity Park. Staff was friendly, but due to the newer hotel in the Cultural District I ended up moving over there for the remainder of my stay in Fort Worth. The Cultural District Residence Inn also has a more professional business traveler feel to it.

Visited the Residence Inn Fort Worth University drive after staying at the Residence Inn in Tyler TX ... because my stay there was so good. Arriving in Fort Worth, I found the hotel to have an exceptional location near TCU, and the traditional "welcome home" feeling that many Residence Inn's share. Being an older property, the rooms are generally larger and include a living area, a fully stocked kitchen (although a hot breakfast is served daily and there are several restaurants within walking distance) and a separate sleeping area.
Adjacent to the hotel is a park along the river, and the zoo is a short walk. The staff is very friendly, and does all that it can to ensure that you feel like the hotel is "home away from home". I'll stay again on my next Fort Worth visit!

I really liked the location of this hotel. We were in town to do a college visit, and it was a very easy drive to our destination. The area around the hotel felt very safe.

We had a beatiful one bedroom suite, with high ceilings. The hotel and our room smelled very clean when we walked in.

We have very noisy guests above us all hours of the night, but that isn't Residence Inn's fault.

One gross thing was that there was two small drops of blood on the sofa bed when we folded it out. Time for a new sofa mattress!

The people at the front desk and housekeeping people were very nice and attentive.

I have traveled all over the world and stayed in places that range from roadside motels to the Hyatt and the Four Seasons. During my recent stay at this Marriott I experienced a level of service that would rival or even exceed the best hotels in the world. I would especially like to praise the front desk Manager, Chris Staten. He went well above any level of service that anyone could expect and the entire staff was great. In my opinion the staff at a hotel makes all the difference in the quality of a persons stay. The location is close the the area hospitals and a shuttle service is available.

I stay at this hotel during while traveling to a client in downtown Fort Worth and it was very pleasant. It was also the week of finals for TCU students so most of the coffee shops were full of studying students.

Each night in the lobby there was a different snack/dinner provided by the hotel which I found quite nice for a quick snack. Not sure I would have made a meal out of it.

The beds are small - not quite Queens. They are a little smaller and I was told there was no King Size beds in the hotel. That was kind of a bummer, but not too big of a deal.

Each room had its own Kitchen and flat screen TVs. The office chairs were someone what uncomfortable and the desk in each flat/loft was also shared as the kitchen table.
