Reviewed 23 September 2013

We stayed for a weekend and really enjoyed it. It's a really nice place even if the outside of the buildings would need a fresh coat of painting. But our studio suite was very clean and had everything to cook and a fireplace. The breakfast room in the main building is lovely and the breakfast buffet was great. The staff is very friendly Unfortunately, we only stayed for one night but it would have been worth staying longer. I would certainly recommend the place!

We stayed on the weekend of September 14th. Since we live in Canada and our main purpose was shopping, we had some packages deliver to the hotel. The front desk staff gave us our packages at our arrival. The hotel was very clean and has coffee and tea available at the front desk. Wifi has an excellent signal, even in the parking lot. The breakfast was good, some variety.
Staff was helpful, and the room was great and equipped with fridge, microwave, stove, etc. We had a good stay and definitely recommend this hotel.

A great hotel on the outskirts of Burlington with clean rooms and facilities. A big plus with a pool and fitness center. Very comfy with my two children tagging along on a little business after recreation vacation! Staff were all super friendly.

All this hotel needs is new furniture, updated amenities, and new decor. They clearly upgraded the kitchens to match the RI standard, but the rest of the room isn't so great. Really dark, dreary and not fresh or terribly clean. This is a pet-friendly hotel so not sure if they use all rooms for those travelling with pets, but there was a stale odor in the room. But, the staff was quite friendly and helpful, I just recommend brightening up the rooms a bit.
Pros: friendly staff, decent kitchen setup, good location, decent breakfast (although they ran out before the 9:30 cutoff so I only had 1.5 cups instead of my usual 2), quiet rooms (except for the AC blower).
Cons: dingy rooms and furniture, couldn't control the AC temp other than to turn it on/off (too cold for sleeping), small bed with not great mattress, found an ant in the kitchen, soap bar disintegrated in the soap dish (!?!?!?) - wierd and disturbing. As much travelling as I do, I've never seen the bar of soap turn to a paste-like substance. All I could think of was that there was bleach or another chemical left in the soap dish that interacted poorly with the soap. I rinsed it out and it didn't happen again. Also, the tub started to fill while I showered - yuck. I made sure the drain was open but it kept filling. Need a little drano perhaps.
Would I recommend it - if you're going to simply sleep, yes. If you're going to spend a week....not really. I would only stay there again if I know it's been remodeled. The room rate was pretty outrageous for the night - $239. But everywhere else was totally booked. Getting into Burlington or onto the highway is a snap.

Room Tip: Ask if the room is used for pets.

I have stayed here at least 3 times over the past couple of years. The staff at the hotel is always very attentive here, from booking a taxi for an early morning flight to the BBQ night dinner they provided during the last trip. The food is the best of any residence inn I've stayed at! Although it is an older style residence inn (separate house buildings rather than one big building), everything is very clean and well-maintained at this property. While it is a little bit outside of Burlington, I would definitely stay here again in the future. Very pleasant stay!

We just spent a long weekend here. There were four of us so they upgraded us to the Penthouse Suite. It was nice and roomy. Chris, at the front desk, is a gem. He was very helpful and great to talk to. The breakfast buffet provided more than enough choices for a complete meal. This is, however, one of the older Residence Inns that we have stayed at. Overall, it was a pleasant trip.

Room Tip: Rooms in the higher numbered building are further away from the road and are quieter.

We stayed here in early July during which Burlington was dealing with a significant amount of rain which had flooded several of the rooms on the lower levels of the hotel's buildings. The exterior of the buildings leaves something to be desired. We had a room on the second level and it was really spacious and extremely clean. There were six of us and we had plenty of room to stretch our legs and spread out during our two nights. The breakfast is really good, (they had water issues in the dining area as well) with fresh fruit, waffles, breakfast sandwiches, something for everyone. The staff needs to be commended for dealing with a tough situation in such a professional manner. The housekeeper (after bumping into us) even left us a wonderful note saying she hoped we had a great day! Even with the water issues we are planning on returning to this hotel next July.

Room Tip: Second floor is a good bet to avoid any water issues.
