Late Post Oct 23'|Check in was a breeze, our room was clean and when we requested for extra pillows, towels etc, they were more than happy to accommodate and was quick to deliver. They are off the beaten path about 20-30 mins from Downtown so I don’t know why they charge for daily parking. I do recall reading something that stated “in and out privileges” Not sure what that means when there isn’t a guard to let you in and out. (missing star).|Pros|The breakfast was really great! They have tons of options including rice which was very odd but I love rice so I can’t complain. They have everything you need as far as kitchenware utensils, plates, scrub mama, paper towels. They also offer shampoo, conditioner, body wash. The gym was smaller than I expected but the machines worked and they only have dumbbells. |Cons|The A/C and furnace was located in the room and goodness did it wake me when it came on. We did have an accessible room but the person who we traveled with didn’t have a wheel chair, the bathroom has a shower with no step just open so I was worried that one may slip if someone had to use the restroom after someone showered (check the pics) shampoo, conditioner and body wash sucked! Also, the placement of the pullout couch was very odd, we needed to either keep the door open or it would hit the bottom or wont open if we closed the door. |

This is an older, but clean property in a safe location. We didn't use much of the amenities during our stay so I can't say anything about that. Our room tended to get a funky odor during the day but I wonder if the person next to us was actually cooking in their kitchen. We had one window that could open and that took care of the problem. For fitness enthusiasts or those that like a quiet walk, there are miles upon miles of trails about a half mile away. We even saw a coyote at a distance on our run. Breakfast is great: cereal, oatmeal, bagels, hard boiled eggs, scones, biscuits, and rice are available daily, along with several rotating hot options. We saw egg white frittata, sugared waffles, egg and cheese muffins/croissants, and scrambled eggs. And we were only there three days! But what really makes this hotel special is the breakfast staff. Both we interacted with were friendly but Carol absolutely makes the place feel homey and like you've got a mom or a grandma watching over you. She smiles and greets everyone, offers to clear your plate for you, asks you how your day is, and you can even catch her singing as she works. I don't know if I've ever met someone so happy to be at work. I hope Residence Inn knows they have a gem!
