We were travelling with another friend and decided that a 2 bedroom suite was less expensive than 2 separate rooms (even if we had stayed at a budget motel). Since we are loyal Marriott rewards members, we decided to give the Towneplace Suites a try. Although in a central location near Haywood mall, the property is tucked away and somewhat hidden. There are no restaurants or convenience stores within walking distances. However, the hotel does have a well stocked snack section/pantry, and the prices are very reasonable (like $1 for M&Ms, $1 for soda) There was a small outdoor by the lobby that was closed for the season.
Overall, the property looks more like an apartment complex than a hotel. There appears to be 2 separate buildings one on the left (where the office is) and one on the right. When we walked into the other building, there was a strong scent of cigarette smoke. Unfortunately, some obnoxious guest had either smoked in the hall or in their room, but that is really beyond the hotel's control. Since this was a 100% smoke free property we were really worried about the smell of the room, fortunately, the room was clean and smelled fresh (with no hint of cigarette smoke).
The 2 bedroom suite was very spacious. There is a sleeper sofa in the living area that we did not use. Each bedroom had a queen bed and a TV. A useful design is that there is a separate door between the toilet/shower and the sink. Yes, the property is older, but the beds/sheets were clean and comfortable. Room could use some upgrades, but everything was in perfect working order. In the 2nd bedroom, they put the TV right in front of the mirror, rendering it useless!
It was my understanding that Towneplace Suites does not provide a complementary breakfast. It certainly was not mentioned on our rate plan. So, we were surprised when there was a carton of orange juice, milk and hot water for grits and oatmeal. There were also apples and some pastries. It is not as nice as a Fairfield Inn or Residence Inn, but when you expected nothing, it was a pleasant surprise. Frankly, the "continential" breakfast is better than many others around.
Parking is plentiful and right by the entrances. There was an elevator in our building, but it was easier to walk up the stairs. The staff were professional and friendly, addressed the long term guests by their first name.
Bottom line: The room/suite was clean, comfortable and quiet. For what we paid (a little over $100 per night) for a 2 bedroom suite, it was an incredible value. Had it just been my wife and I, we probably would have stayed at the Fairfield Inn or Courtyard, but we would not hesitate to return here in the future!
