I have stayed in this Hotel for over 170 days during the past year. Each stay was over 30 days each time. Our company had 10 - 24 people here on each of those trips. None of us would want to stay anywhere else in this area. All Residence Inns are extended stay Hotels with Kitchen, full size fridge, Large micro-wave, two burner stove, Pots, pans, dishes, silverware and full size sink so cooking is definitely an option.
The rooms here also have a large work desk with computer cable and plenty of electric plugs. Most rooms have a comfortable king bed and foldout double bed/couch as well as an easy chair and ottoman. There is plenty of storage space both in the kitchen area and in the bedroom area. The bathroom has the shower and toilet in a separate room with the extra large vanity and mirror never getting steamed up. The closet is huge with loads of space for lots of clothes. There is a nice counter by the kitchen area and a dining table with two chairs.
The rooms are large with plenty of open space and at least two windows for plenty of light. There are plenty of lamps in convenient locations. This is a fairly new hotel and is always clean and well maintained. Staying here for two months at a time is a wonderful experience. Every Monday and Tuesday there is a Manager's Toast with free food and drinks to include beer and wine. They also have a social every other Wed with the same type items. Rooms here include a free breakfast with a wide variety of selections and always biscuits and gravy on Sundays. Miss Shelly, Mary, Faye and sometimes Jennifer take good care of the guests. Miss Elaine does the evening festivities with flair!
The outside is well maintained and features a nice outdoor pool, whirlpool, basketball and tennis court as well as two gas grills for guest use. Al of the staff are friendly, helpful and provide a welcome atmosphere. There is plenty of well lit parking with several keycard entrances for convenience. The exercise room is well equiped and well maintained.
The location is perfect! It's right off a major highway and has restaurants and a Super Wal-Mart within walking distance. There is a mall right across the highway with just about anything anyone would want. IThe hotel is just far enough away from the highway to not hear the traffic.
The guest laundry has 3 washers and 6 dryers and only costs $1.00 a load. The internet was occasionally spotty and slow but mostly during peak hours when everyone tried to get on line right after work.
All in all this is a perfect hotel for extended stays. The staff makes everyone feel like family. If you like comfortable, clean, friendly and convenient places, this is the place to go. My thanks to the management and staff for making my stays here feel like home away from home. The house keeping staff here do a fantastic job! Stacy, you ROCK!
All of this and only 80 miles from Panama City! TIP: for extra quiet and less bright sunlight, ask for an even numbered room on the third floor.
