We stayed in this hotel on the way down south to Kentucky to visit my parents for Thanksgiving and unfortunately only stayed for a few hours, as we arrived late and left early. We didn't get a chance to check out the gym or have breakfast; the pool is outdoors only and not open this late in the season.
We did really enjoy the fact that the hotel was located in a quiet, somewhat sterile complex with mostly office buildings. (The key was that it was quiet.) Behind the hotel, there was even a steep dirt road that my puppy and I discovered led to a few hike-worthy trails.
Rooms and bathrooms were immaculate. Dishes, pots and pans and utensils were standard Residence Inn issue, but somewhat more worn than at other places we've visited. There were no wine glasses, but we were happy to drink straight out of the bottle, anyway. ;)
It wasn't such a big deal for us given the brevity of our stay, but the rooms in our suite were really quite small for a Residence Inn. The living room was tiny, with a couch, TV, coffee table, desk and kitchen table all cramped into the same 14' x 14' space (an estimate). The bedroom was hardly more than the bed. Windows did not open, or if they did, we couldn't figure out how to open them.
We were expecting a little more for the price and the location, but overall, found the hotel to be fine for what it was. I'd recommend the hotel for those traveling with dogs (it seems to be better than the other alternatives we found in the area), but not so enthusiastically for others.
