“In the deep south for a few days”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 February 2014

I had to go to Huntsville on short notice and the hotel to stay at was the Residence Inn. It is located off a main thoroughfare with constant traffic. I was fortunate as this did not affect my sleep for the days I was there. Also that particular week was a cold one in north Alabama and I can say the facilities were working just fine. A very comfortable place definitely.

I tried breakfast a couple of times and you got the basics every day. Given that it is a property for extended stays there are options close by to shop for groceries and make use of the kitchen in the room. I did that and also tried two of the restaurants along that main thoroughfare. The restaurants were ok.

I tried to make use of the gym, however good luck if you try to go in between 6:00 and 6:30 AM. A limited space and simply not meant to have more than three people at a time.
The property had a pool and barbecue grill, but the cold front made this impossible.

If I had to return to Huntsville I would consider staying again.

Recently spent two weeks in Huntsville to attend some training and enjoyed my stay at the Residence Inn.

Pros: Friendly staff, clean rooms, outdoor bbq area, small kitchenette, full size refrigerator, free daily breakfast and evening appetizers on Tues-Thurs.

Cons: Only two that really aren't the hotels fault. One, the local trash truck made an almost daily 4AM trip to empty the big dumpsters at this hotel and the one across the street. If you're a light sleeper I'd recommend requesting a room on the west side of the hotel. I mentioned it to the front desk and they were going to try to get the garbage trucks to come later in the day. Second, it's located off a busy highway and traffic can be really heavy during rush hour.

Room Tip: If you are a light sleeper I would request a room on the west side (away from the pool and basketbal...

I've stayed in quite a few hotels in Huntsville for business trips, and the Residence Inn has been where I've returned over and over again. It's clean and well maintained (other hotels had mold, bugs, or the bathroom was cracked or chipped up).

The staff really makes this hotel. The General Manager, Neil, knows my name on sight, even after an 11 month absense. The ladies who cook breakfast always have a warm greeting for you, and they take their cooking of both breakfast and the social dinners seriously and want to give you the best experience. The housekeepers had a smile and greeting when I saw them in the halls. The front desk staff had a greeting whether you were coming in or going out. They are more than willing to chat with you and are very personable.

Their social hour is fun. You can meet people from all over the place. They have free dinner, wine and beer. Depending on the night, this can be a very busy place. It's worth stopping by, meeting new people, or at least getting a beverage or plate of food before going back to your room.

The location is great if you're looking for a lot of restaurants and basic shops. It's right off of University (one of the main roads in HSV), with a shopping center that has a Target in it, a Walmart less than 5 minutes down the road, and is surrounded by restaurants. It is less than 10 minutes from the Bridgestreet Shops (high end outdoor mall). Downtown is about 20 minutes away.

If you're looking for luxury, this isn't the place to go, but you should know that if you're looking to stay at a Residence Inn. Occasionally at night the front desk staff isn't up front 100% of the time. All you have to do is call out and they'll come out.

I stayed here while on business for 2 weeks, and I couldn't have asked for anywhere better to stay. The room I stayed in had a seperated bed area from the living room and the kitchen was great for cooking and I hate having to constantly eat out so this place is ideal for people who want a stove and a full size fridge. It's like an apartment it doesn't feel like you're staying in a hotel room. The staff were great, they were always very friendly and would help whenever I needed anything. The young girl at the desk that was always there during the evenings suggested places for me to go eat and printed out directions to some places and I just felt very well taken care of during my stay. I will definitely stay again on my next trip back and would recommend this place to anyone seeking a high quality greatly staffed hotel to stay in!

I have stayed at this hotel two or three times before, so the location and amenities were no surprise. In that sense, in fact, they are the normal set of things you expect at a Residence Inn. That said, the staff was uninformed about the local area (the clerk claimed there were no restaurants within walking distance -- there must be 15) and the internet connectivity was the worst I've experienced in years. Even after asking the day manager about the internet, it got no better. I'm a Marriott Platinum member, but sadly this hotel is off my list.

Thank you for letting us know about your recent stay. In an effort to provide the best internet service to our guests we invested in an internet upgrade earlier this year. Our internet service provider monitors our system for issues and when an issue is found immediately contacts us to address the issue. We also have the ability to contact them when we have a complaint. We are currently investigating the problem so that our guests do not experience this problem in the future. Again, we appreciate our guests like you bringing this to our attention so we know to address it.
I appreciate your feedback about requests for restaurants within walking distance. Since "walking distance" does vary from person to person, your feedback inspired me to create a list of restaurants with the cooresponding distance in miles (or less) to each. That way when a guest in the future asks what restaurants are within walking distance, we will have a list for them to choose what sounds appetizing to them and is worth the walk! I hope you will give us another try as we do strive to provide the best service to our guests. And with guests like you to help us find areas for improvement...I know that we will continue to improve with every stay!

I do a lot of business in Huntsville and this is my favorite place to stay. There is a Super Target adjacent with several other stores if you forget anything. I think the breakfast is a better deal than the Courtyard, and it is consistently good and is pretty diverse in its offerings. Some of the rooms have gas fireplaces. The shower pressure is nice and the rods curve out so you don't feel claustrophobic.

Room Tip: The rooms in the back hall are quieter than the rooms in the side wings.

We stayed in a 2 bedroom 2 bath August, 2013 for a game night with teenagers. The room was clean, full sized refrigerator, microwave, stove top (can't remember if there was an oven) spacious living area, fireplace, table with four chairs. The staff was friendly and helpful--will definitely stay again.

Air unit was quite noisy.
