Tuesday night before Thanksgiving is never a good time to travel. If you add in rainy weather and a car sick 10 year old who vomited on the family dog and herself then you pretty much have a recipe for disaster. It took our family 2 hours and 45 min to reach Fredericksburg VA from Bethesda MD so by 10 PM that night we were pretty much totally tapped out. My wife called the hotel and made sure that our room would be waiting for us along with a roll-away bed.
Fortunately, we made it to Rocky Mount without further incident arriving at 2 am. In spite of the late hour, we were greeted warmly and professionally by the front desk staff and the room was clean and roomy even with the roll-away bed and sofabed in use. The blackout curtains enabled us to sleep until 915AM. I rushed downstairs with the dog (she had been bathed along with my daughter - but not simultaneously) to make sure the breakfast food was still available.
Everyone was so kind. They spoke with Indy (the dog) and offered to watch her while I gathered up breakfast for the gang (the waffles were a big hit - especially with the chocolate chips on top). Initially I had put Indy out by the pool but she wandered off and was soon back at the front door. What a great bunch of staff you have. Everyone was helpful and friendly.
Our travel plans often require us to drive to from Bethesda MD to Marshville, NC to visit family. We will definitely be back. Top marks to everyone at the Residence Inn in Rocky Mount!
I know it's odd to give 5 stars to a Residence Inn but there were treated better than at most 4 diamond resorts and that is worth a lot in my book!
