We stayed for two three weeks periods with a week in between. We couldn't get the type of room we wanted for the second stay. The location is ideal, especially if you like Chick-Fil-A and Bob Evans. The hotel is normally Marriott clean but a number of the appliances were working marginally. We reported them but we don't like people...

Managers on all shifts were very friendly and always went the extra mile. In fact, all of the staff were great. Nice rooms, good free breakfast service. Convenient location; however, rooms on freeway side are a bit noisy. Really enjoyed the snack nights.

The people who work here are very helpful and friendly. The "after work" food they have a couple of days a week are very nice. However, the rooms are starting to look very tired.

Was there for three nights on points. Staff were very nice and courteous. Rooms are well-appointed with the usual amenities. Complimentary breakfast is standard among Residence Inns. There is an outdoor fireplace next to the front desk. Pool is open but we did not use them, so could not comment. The location of this property is quite good, being right...
