“Great Place To Stay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 6, 2013

The hotel was clean and welcoming. I average 170 days a year at marriott hotels. This is one of the best Residence Inns that I have stayed at. The hotel staff was very helpful and supportive. Their shuttle service to near by places to eat made it easy to get places without a car.

I recently used this hotel as a along stay property for our tour group. We stayed for 18 days in one and two bedroom units. The hotel is small, very clean and well maintained. The units are good size altough we found the placement of the living room furniture in our unit, a bit odd and rearranged it for our stay. The kitchens are well equipped with dishes, pots etc. and have a full size fridge, a stove top, microwave, coffee maker, toaster and dishwasher. They provide dish cloths and dish soap.
There are light suppers with beverages, three days a week. The food was fine, it's not meant to be a big dinner. The hotel is within walking distance to a couple restaurants and the hotel offers a shuttle service to shopping and restaurants and the airport. There are lots of restaurants in the area and a large mall is a few minutes away. It is a short drive to downtown and to many attractions.
The staff is wonderful. From front desk to maids, maintainance were helpful, friendly, made you welcome. The manager and sales staff regularly helped at the front desk, visited with guests, helped carry luggage and always had a time to answer questions and that says a lot in my opinion. They care.
There is a pool and hot tub off the lobby. If I have a complaint it is the lack of pool lounges and the old outdoor furniture. I think there were 4 lounges and 3 had broken straps. All the pool funiture should be updated. I also realize hotel funiture takes an awful beating from guest and it is costly to replace.
Will I be back? Absolutely!! l checked out several suite hotels for our tour before deciding on the Residence Inn. I can confidently say our client enjoyed the hotel, had only good comments. I know that whenever we are in Texas we will be staying here

Room Tip: avoid the rooms close to the elevator and the laundry. Can be noisy at time. there are limited saf...

I travel to McAllen frequently and have stayed at other hotels, but none are as good as the Residence Inn Marriott in McAllen. They have always been friendly and accommodating despite how busy they are. I have had questions about dining and a variety of things and they are always ready with the answer or ready to find the answer.
They greet me with a friendly smile and seem to genuinely care about my stay. The rooms are clean and spacious. The bed is comfortable and welcoming. The location is great as well, close to the gym down the street and the hospitals nearby.
Thank you McAllen Residence Inn for the home away from home.

We stayed on a business trip for two nights in McAllen Texas. The hotel was clean, the breakfast was delicious, and the accommodations even better than we expected. But what puts this hotel ahead of the rest is the service and the people working at the hotel. Everyone was very friendly and quick to help if there was a question or need. Every little detail was taken care of, phone calls were made, phone cords found, access to the meeting room arranged. Not once did we feel we they were put-out, but they smiled and helped and asked what else we needed. I would DEFINITELY stay here again if we come back down to Texas. Our whole group was so impressed!

We stayed one week while visiting family; would likely not go back to this hotel.
The good: rooms are very large, most with a full kitchen. Beds are quite comfortable; bathroom is adequate. Cleaning staff did a great job every day.
The not so good: furniture is well worn, with an armchair that has most of the finish scraped off. Windows are not clear (moisture??) and difficult to open. The vanity and sink are outside the bathroom and adjacent the bed; so it's impossible for one person to get cleaned up without waking anyone else in the room. As is often the case, one cannot turn on the bathroom light without also turning on an annoyingly loud fan.
A laundry room on our floor was very convenient.
The breakfast was somewhat worse than anything else we encountered on this trip. Cut up fruit consisted solely of pineapple... in an area where oranges and grapefruit abound. Scrambled eggs and DIY waffles were the mainstay of the breakfast. Coffee was "available" during the evening, but it was always cold.
Staff were friendly, but we were surprised at how little local knowledge front desk personnel had. Inquiries about local restaurants were not well answered, nor our questions about things to see and do in the area.
The hotel is somewhat difficult to locate, with an address that most GPS devices would not find. Although it is quite close to the main highway it is surprisingly quiet. There is a wonderful walking/running/cycling trail one short block away.

Room Tip: There is some walking noise from the room above, so pick the top floor if you can.

Would definately stay here again. THE PROS: Spacious room; very comfortable bed; comfortable sofa and recliner; excellent breakfast; great internet connection; dinner 3x a week; clean, well kept property. The CONS: The towels were stiff and rough; the pool water was cold; the "business center" printer only printed in B&W; the furniture was beyond its prime.

It was a challenge to find their location. The other hotels in the area have eye-level signs to attract the driver's sight. This hotel has an aerial sign to attract the highway traveller - although it is not located on the highway!

I wouldn't call the staff friendly or unfriendly. The only greeting we got during a 5 day stay was a "Hello" from someone in the manager's office as we passed by the door one morning. The desk staff couldn't even recommend a good pizza place. Housekeeping honored the "Do Not Disturb" and the room was spotless upon our return.
