Musty smell but good enough to stay one night

We stayed here on a stop during a long drive. Just needed a place to shower and sleep. Front desk staff was VERY nice and helpful. The room was nice size and mostly clean, but it had a musty smell. Breakfast was okay, but my kids were disappointed they were out of waffle batter. Also, the employee helping with breakfast was having a bad day and mumbled under her breath constantly about messy guests, too much work because of all the kids, etc. Not very professional.

Not what I expected

Pros: Free breakfast
If I had expected a room with one double bed and a sleeper sofa, this probably would have gotten a higher rating. But the room was billed as two double beds and my daughters were quite disappointed in finding they had to sleep on a sleeper sofa. Also, my husband and I would have liked to sit and talk on the couch after the girls went to bed, but we couldn't. The room was clean, there were cups and glasses in the room and there was a breakfast that was--OK.

Nice breakfast, friendly staffs

We stay at this Residence Inn as the result of hurricane evacuation. The room has full size refrigerator, stove and microwave oven, and full set of utensils. The room is decent sized for a family of two adults and two children. It is nicely located within short distance of gracery stores, shopping malls, and an array of restaraunts. It's a perfect place for evacuation and a few days get away. The staffs, in particular free breakfast, are wonderfully friendly. You feel like at your neighborhood restaurant.

On the move

Moved from Ohio to Texas, so we had to find a place halfway between to stay the night. I looked online for a place that was pet-friendly and found this hotel. Unfortunately, they didn't tell me that I would have to pay an extra $75 to bring my dog into the room. I called Travel agency and they did give me a discount on my next booking, but it would have been nice to know this ahead of time. Thankfully I could claim all of this on my taxes. The hotel itself is very nice with lots of food right across the street. I walked my dog at 11:00 PM and did not feel in any trouble thanks to plenty of lighting around the facility.

This was a great hotel with clean, spacious rooms and very easily located. I would definitely stay here again if I were in the same area!
