Good Breakfast Buffet !!

Several things I'd like to hightlight about this place: (1) a lot of choises for breakfast buffet (2) convenient location for foods (there is a Pinkberry near by!) (3) condo-style and spacious is way better than a regular several-floor/single room building hotel..

expected more for the room

Pros: Free breakfast, Close restaurants, Free Internet, close to everything
Cons: carpet in the room--poor condition
i didn't like the fold-out bed on the main floor--kinda tacky. the carpet was in poor condition and had an odor of staleness. the staff was excellent--they made me feel welcome, also the free breakfast was exceptional--enjoyed it a lot.

okay, nothing spectacular

We stayed here to attend the NCAA volleyball tournament. Overall, the room was alright. We got a studio (expected a double) for 4 people. This made things very cramped. The sofa sleeper was uncomfortable, and they never gave us enough bedding and towels, we had to keep asking. The bed was comfortable. The hotel appeared a little older than the photos on the website, a little worn. Pluses, close to Arden fair mall - good shopping, breakfast was good. Staff overall was nice, helpful when asked.

Surpised blessing

We truly enjoyed our one week stay @ the Residence Inn. We have always stayed at a Vacation Home while traveling because we have a large family--so I wasn't sure if the room would be comfortable for us. But we were pleased! The living area wasn't as cramped as it seemed in the photos online. Our only disappointment was that the upstairs bedroom provided no privacy because of the half wall! Everyone loved the great breakfast! We also like that each complex was set up like separte apartments--so we felt like home. Cost of laundering was a little expensive though.

Rest for the weary

After a long day on the road, we were delighted to be greeted by such a friendly staff. They told us about their services and bragged on about the breakfast. It was as good as they said. I'd stay there again and recommend it to friends. Good job! Good value too.
