Enjoyed a nice couple of days stay. The complex is a little older but very clean and cozy. We had a 2 bedroom & 2 bath suite with a kitchenette. I definitely recommend a 2 bedroom if traveling with kids. The kitchen is small but it made it easy to fix a quick snack or reheat leftover. Staff was super friendly and accommodating. Continental breakfast was tasty, sitting area wasn’t too small & there was extra sitting area outside. Property had tennis court, basketball & pingpong. I will definitely stay here again should the need arise.
I stayed at this residence in for three nights while in the area to lead a workshop. It was a fine quality Residence Inn. My room had all the amenities you expect at Residence Inn, and was very clean, quiet and provided three great nights of sleep. The folks at the desk were super helpful and the breakfasts were varied and delicous.
