It's tough to put my finger on why I wasn't thrilled with my stay. While nothing "gross" emerges, it's more a sense of a "take it or leave it" attitude. This is an airport Residence Inn. It's convenient to the LVI Airport, which is a plus for some. As for business travelers such as I am, there's a sense of economy, less comfort - and a pulling back on the niceties. Nothing quite wrong - but definitely nothing to make me glad I stayed here.

Dear tinkerman33,

I am happy that you enjoyed your stay with us but I just wanted to clarify two items in which you have mentioned. Our hotel is indeed pet friendly, but we are definitely do not allow smoking in our rooms. I hope this information was helpful and it will assist you when deciding to stay with us in the future.

Googled up this hotel while riding shotgun on our drive from VA to VT. Booked it online, found it w/ no problem, and the rooms are all just redone! Like staying in a brand new hotel!! Would definitely stay again. Oh, and it included breakfast.

The entire place is under construction. There is no lobby. There is no exercise room. Meals are crammed into 1/2 a room with the front desk staff. BUT despite all this the front desk ladies are doing a wonderful job in impossible conditions. Who ever thought up the transition plan should be working the front desk while people are sitting next to you having breakfast with the tv on....no, it is the front desk staff that make this hotel no matter the conditions and they are sorely in need of praise and recognition for their efforts. Without the front desk staff, the hotel would not be just mediocre. So, when you stay, say nice things to the women who work the front desk....they desire every accolade they can get...

Room Tip: Say thank you to the wonderful people who work the front desk...

Dear JAMDVM,

I am pleased to inform you that we have completed our rooms and gatehouse renovation! You will love the new style of the spacious suites, which feature comfortably zoned spaces for eating, sleeping, working and unwinding, all with full kitchens, will keep you recharged and focused throughout your stay.

And of course, the free daily hot breakfast, offering a variety of healthy and indulgent options, will help you start your day off right, while the complimentary evening socials will help you unwind after a long day.

We gladly welcome you back to our hotel, and please let me know if there is anything we can do to make your stay more pleasurable.

..made our two night stay homely..Very nice suite. We enjoyed our stay throughout...the shuttle was consistent to and from LVIA (airport).. Breakfast was nicely prepared each morning, nice stock of drinks and snacks.....FREE!! They even had a cheeese/crackers and fruits event one evening for guests.

They are currently renovating the Front Desk area...so they temporarily moved this service to the breakfast area......may be a bit congested, but it never impacted the pleasant environment and service....

Did I say that the airport shuttle service is proficient and timely. ...."smile"

Dear Jaderuby,

We have had our shuttle for the past 3 years, but our guests are just finding out about it now! With affordable flights going out of LVIA, especially to Orlando, we are seeing our guests taking advantage of our complimentary service. Thank you for staying with us. We hope to see you in the near future!

Stayed here with the family for a one night stay. I was happy to have been put in a room that had been renovated as the photos on the website of the old rooms were very worn. The new room was very comfortable. Nice new soft goods were put into the rooms. Modern carpet, comfortable pull out sofa and a very clean bathroom were of note. The kitchen was very handy to have and featured a new granite counter and a new, clean fridge. Breakfast which was included was a great value. The area was a little cramped because the normal lobby and dining room were under renovation, but not a big deal. Liked the convenience of a separate living space from the bedroom for the kids. Allowed for some downtime after the kids went to bed.

Dear Rosone13,

We are nearing the end of our renovation with approximately 90% of the project complete. We are planning to have our brand new lobby area & the clean and spacious breakfast area back in time for the weekend. We are happy to hear that you enjoyed your accommodations with us and we can’t wait to have you back!

Travel Tip: looking for something to do with your family while staying at our hotel? Ask the front desk for our collection of books and board games. It’s great for all ages.

Stayed here end of Jan '13 on a snow tubing weekend family trip to Blue Mountain. Found exactly what I needed here. Larger rooms with full kitchens, giving plenty of space for large families and cooking abilities. Stayed in two bdrm, two bathroom suite and another one bdrm suite. If you are looking for fancy, this may not be your place, but if you need a solid place with extra room, it's a good bet. (They are currently remodeling and the new rooms look great!)

Hotel staff was extremely courteous and fulfilled and personal request with commitment.

Would definitely visit again.

Dear 655edith,
I thank you for the positive comments. While we are under renovations, we have been able to section off areas of the hotel to ensure our guests are not affected by the construction. Your comment is proof that it is definitely working.

Please note that we are in the final stages of our renovation and we would love to welcome you back for our grand reopening! The main lobby area will be complete by Mid-February. We hope to see you back soon.
