Our stay here was wonderful! Our daughter and her 2 children came on this trip with us. There are no adjoining rooms as we requested, however they gave us rooms that faced each other. It was perfect. We could prop the doors open and the kids ran back and forth between our rooms which was just what we wanted. The kitchenette was very clean and well equipped.

If you want to leave your home for some time you need confort and that’s what they offer you. Great rooms fully equipped with kitchen. Excellent for families with children. The breakfast is very good and healthy.

Room was excellent. Had a full kitchen with accessories. Bath with shower. Excellent WIFI throughout. Nice sized flatscreen TV. Comfortable bed . Pool with hot tub. Very clean, nice staff!! Free breakfast in the morning, but I didn't try it.

I rarely like the bed I sleep in but this one was great! Room was quiet, kept clean by a great housekeeping staff. The Front Desk recognized me as a Platinum Premier, appreciate that! I did not eat breakfast nor the even socials so I cannot comment on the food. Overall I’d be very happy to stay here again.

I liked this place for the meeting we had. Good location and very quiet. Parking was good also. Those who stayed over liked the rooms. Rooms were ample and nice. If I were to stay over night I would stay here.

Great location, awesome staff, very clean and super helpful. Nice laundry facilities and pool/barbecue area. Social hour in the lobby Mon-Wed is generous and lively. Very refreshing :-) thanks a million! We're looking forward to the rest of our stay!

Family Stayed here in two rooms for a month and was very happy. Staff was extremely friendly. Rooms were cleaned well. Continental breakfast was good with a bit of variety. They have special food and drink events during the week. Really enjoyed our stay here even if it was because our house flooded. Special shout out to house keeping staff especially Inez, she was wonderful. Enjoyed talking to her as well and she always did a great job. Only sad note is that my adult daughter lost her childhood stuffed dog she has had for over 20 years. Was never found in the room after she had forgotten it. Hope it turns up someday. But I would recommend this pet friendly place to anyone. For short or long stay. And thanks (Gina) for the food truck referral.

We had a first-floor 2-bedroom unit that was lovely. I've stayed in A LOT of Residence Inns (b/c they are dog friendly, usually offer 2 bedrooms, and have decent breakfast), and this one actually surprised me with how nice it was. Newer carpets, fixtures, paint, kitchens - I don't even know what all it was but it surprised me in a pleasant way. Traveling as a family of four with a dog it's always nice at the end of the day to be able to spread out and relax in your own space. Breakfast was nice - this hotel even had flavored syrup for your coffee! We even took our dog to eat with us at Lazy Dog across the freeway. I would stay here again if in the area.

We stayed three nights at this hotel. The rooms were spacious and the hotel was located in an area that was accessible to the freeway. Hotel staff were friendly and remembered us when we came back for the day and inquired how our outings went. The rooms had a full kitchen if needed, but we did not use it. Free breakfast was provided which had a variety of items including eggs, sausage, waffles, cereal, and pastries. The woman in the breakfast area was very sweet and worked hard to keep up with the demand of the guests. The only recommendation I have would be to leave cooking spray for the waffle iron out as the waffle stick without it. We have stayed at many Marriott properties and this was the first time I have had to ask for it and then it was put away after I sprayed it on the waffle iron.

I have a long history with this property and can state with confidence that it has improved over time. The rooms have been upgraded to a more modern look and the comfort has improved. What really sets this place apart is that the staff is friendly, helpful and very attentive to each person's needs. Another great thing is the housekeeping and food prep staff are incredible. The rooms are cleaned very well and any special needs services are provided immediately without delay. The food is prepared with tender loving care and the prep staff really is friendly and attentive. They host a very special outdoor barbeque or food truck at times and it really helps when we are away from our homes and family at lengthy times. I can't say anything bad about this hotel. My experience is over a few years of consistent stays at this place and I still keep coming back. One last thing to note is the front desk folks are the best I've experienced in much of my travels in the US. Great place to stay and well managed!!!
