We just got home from this hotel. The front desk people were nice and informative. We got to our room and found a bug resembling a lightening bug on our wall. No big deal, I don't mind ONE bug. I scooped it off the wall and went to throw it away, only to find out our trash was full (We just checked in.....). We found another 3 bugs on the wall by the bed. And there was popcorn on the floor of the room, so I know it wasn't vacuumed. The toilet had a brown crust on the back of the seat. I called down to let them know of the dirty room which they said we could change rooms. I started gathering our belongings and wanted to grab the lotion and it was empty with crust around the top and hair stuck to it. I don't think the housekeeping did anything to that room but make the bed....probably with old sheets. We changed rooms and the new room on a different floor (I'm sure a different housekeeper) was MUCH better. The pool was nice and the water wasn't cold. Again, the front desk staff was nice. There was a party on the floor we were on, with teenagers knocking on our door at night, but I was too tired to deal with it and fell asleep anyways. I would stay here again...I think it was just one bad housekeeper!
We recently stayed one night after booking with a third party and getting this hotel. The room was awesome- king bed with a full kitchen and little living room. The room was clean as well as the lobby, pool area, etc. Staff was super friendly. Only complaint is the breakfast. The meat option was some sort of sausage (not normal looking breakfast sausage) and the eggs tasted terrible. I generally try to be understanding but it was so bad we couldn't eat it so settled for their toast and oatmeal. They did have smoothies made up that were delicious. Overall a great stay and would definitely by back. Just recommend fixing the "hot breakfast" options to something edible.
The wife and I took a road trip from Texas to visit family and see some hockey. We used this facility as our hub during our visit. The facility is an older facility but is well maintained. The only negative was our mattress (room 105) was lumpy and really bothered my wife. Her snoring bothered me more than the lumpy mattress. The meal area was nice and clean. We made it to breakfast each morning and all was fine. Two of our grandsons spent a night with us and the sofa sleeper was fine. We used the pool and it was very nice, clean and warm! I was able to do some work during down times and the internet was plenty fast.
We recently had to travel to Flint for a family funeral. Residence Inn was selected because we wanted somewhere to meet with family. When we returned from the funeral we found a card in our room with staff signatures, expressing condolences; This was so much appreciated. This is a wonderful property with caring staff. Some highlights: Upon arrival, the front desk was welcoming. Our room was comfortable and very quiet. We had a kitchen, living area and bedroom. The kitchen has a range top and all dishes etc, The free Breakfast is served in a pleasant room and the employees are friendly and helpful. Breakfast items included 2 types of eggs and meats, waffles, oatmeal, cold cereal, yogurt, fresh fruit toppings, juices and bagels/bread and pastries. Plus coffee, tea hot chocolate. Also... if you are worried about water issues, their water comes from Detroit not Flint. They are also located in an area with some shopping, grocery stores and restaurants. One restaurant within a 4 minute walk across the parking lot. We would definitely stay here again.
Rooms are clean. On our last trip we were assigned room with king bed & sofa bed. Sofa bed was small, blanket was not enough for two kids. Hallway & lobby tv area carpet was ridden with pet hair. Other than that hotel was nice with clean rooms, breakfast was good.
Other than traffic/road construction, everything was above average. Clean lobby and rooms, friendly staff, We had 3 rooms, 1 had a fridge and microwave, another had a balcony. No rhyme or reason all 3 on same floor. Ask if you prefer one of these amenities. Had a celebrity sighting too.
Very clean spacious room bed very comfortable. Kids enjoyed the pool. One key card stopped working front desk promptly replaced it. Only con is it stated it was a"full kitchen"however it only had a stove top with 2 burners I was expecting a range so I could use the oven. Food took a little longer to cook on those burners didn't seem to heat up entirely.
We stayed one night on our way from Chicago to Montreal. This hotel does not live up to the quality standards that we are accustomed to with the Marriott brand. Cleanliness is lacking especially in the breakfast area. You can look into the kitchen area and OMG, if you would have done that first you probably would go eat elsewhere. The selections are limited and the sausage patties tasted like they cut them out of a piece of cardboard. The room was not that exceptional either. Cleanliness again. No ice in the room. Front Desk swears you have an ice maker, but there is none. I will have to pass by this one on the next trip. As I say in the subject, DISAPPONTING !!
This hotel was fine. One reviewer said the "hotel is old and dingy." I am not sure where that comes from. Our room was very clean and furniture is good condition. The only reason I am giving this hotel a 4 star is that the bed was very soft and I mean soft. The staff was friendly and the hotel is in a good location to visit Grand Blanc, Fenton, Swartz Creek and Flint areas. As long as I could get a good price like I did the first time I would stay again. For example, I got our room at an online booking site for $87 with tax and directly through the Residence Inn website it as $134.
The bad: Hotel is old and dingy. Couches and chairs in suites are covered in stains. Carpets are not as clean as they should be. Closets seem to be over looked when vacuuming is done. The beds are not the typical Marriott beds that are so comfortable. I am not comfortable to walk barefoot in the room or relax in the living room before bed. Ironing Boards are just gross with stains and dust/ dirt. Wouldn't put my clean clothes on them to iron The good: kitchens in suites are very clean! I'm guessing they are never used. Fridge and freezer are spotless and the stove and oven seem to be in brand new condition. Irons are clean ( ironically ) and work well on the table with a bath towel because the boards are unacceptable to use. We have a student at the University and go to the area often. For the Flint area there are not a lot of options and I have stayed here 3 times in the past year always hoping it will be better than the 1 time I stayed at the Courtyard. Sadly, my next stay in Flint will not be at a Marriott property. I'm going to give the 1 B&B in town a shot as it has rave reviews!
