Pros: Friendly service, homely, comfortable, good complimentary continental breakfast, clean/regular housekeeping, nice clean pool, outdoor recreational area, easy walking access to Kroger grocery store right next door), good location to Medical Plaza with reliable shuttle service, updated appliances (big flat screen tv!).
Cons: Priced too high, large garbage cans located right outside of room and smell, Wi-Fi service slow and choppy, no indoor gym on premises, parking not ideal
Overall, this place had what we needed for an extended stay (one week +). It gave us more of an apartment feel than a cramped hotel feel. The staff are very friendly as is the shuttle service. The location is very convenient to the Medical Plaza, Kroger grocery store, fast food restaurants, and only about 10 minutes from Rice Village (nice shopping and dining). Regular housekeeping keeps things clean, and the pool is always clean and relaxing.
The hotel is priced about the same as others in the area, which are all a little expensive in my opinion for something that meets the basic needs of a hotel (non-luxury). Deals are available for extended stays, however. The biggest inconvenience for me is the absence of an indoor fitness facility - they say they are building their own - and if you think you can walk next door and use the Courtyard Marriott's facility, you are mistaken. Residence Inn guests must drive about 5 minutes to the Springhill Suites Marriott to use theirs.
