This hotel is a good value for the price paid. You can't expect JW Marriott surroundings for the price they charge here. We had a 1 bedroom suite and it was very well laid out making it almost seem spacious even though it wasn't. The room was clean and everything in the kitchen seemed to be in working order. The free breakfast was wonderful on both occasions we ate there. The bed was comfortable. We were on the third floor and it was quiet. All that being said, the room was a bit outdated and I've never seen such dirty windows in any hotel. Again, for the price paid, these things can be overlooked.

1. I was there for 5 months while in town for work. The front desk personnel, the asst.mgr., the marketing mgr., and the people whot prepared the food were friendly, helpful, made it feel like home, and truly worked very hard. 2. However, and this is a big however, the housekeeping staff was another issue. After quite some time, I reported the issues I was having with housekeeping. (Yes, I left a tip each day; no, I did not leave my room a mess, etc.) 3. For example, one of housekeepers was in my room on her cell the phone when I came in during the middle of the day, it was obvious the TV was being used while I was out, and Saturday and Sunday mornings seemed to be a contest for housekeeping to see who could speak the loudest in the hallways to wake up the most guests. 4. By the time I checked out, I had given up any hope of resolving the issues and would not have said another word, except the manager emailed me and specifically requested feedback. I responded naming the wonderful people on her staff by name, and mentioning the issues with housekeeping, citing specific examples, too numerous to list here. 5. Her response, you ask? I never even received an auto-reply of "Thank you for your feedback". I clearly should not have taken the time to respond, and I suggest you don't waste your time, either. Particularly if anticipate your problems actually being resolved.

Our family of 4 stayed here while visiting friends in the area as I'm from the area. Everything about the hotel was great except that it smelled of curry EVERYWHERE. It's so disgusting. Also the suites have the bathroom in the bedroom area instead of the main living area so when you put your kids to bed nobody can go to the bathroom.

It was a business stay for a week and I was in a 2 room suite. Nice clean rooms and friendly staff at the hotel made me enjoy my stay. Looked forward to the breakfast in the mornings. My room overlooked a patch of bushes with wild rabbits in it, which made the whole experience feel nice.

I love staying at Residence Inn hotels but the added attraction is the wonderful staff that work here. I have had to stay here several times and every time I have encountered very caring staff and people who went out of their way to be helpful. They have a great happy hour and a wonderful breakfast. When visiting Peoria this is the hotel to stay at.

Our room was clean and roomy, but didn't smell good. Our furniture was super uncomfortable and worn, and really needs to be updated! Having little kids, I felt more comfortable covering it with a sheet before they sat on furniture. Pool, workout, and main areas were nice. We were greeted by the most friendly gal serving dinner, and breakfast was great as well! Overall decent stay, rooms need new furniture!

I'm a long term stay here (30 days), but I've only been here 4 days. There is free breakfast every day: it ranges from oatmeal to bagels and cinnamon rolls, or eggs and toast and coffee, or you can make a waffle, but it's good. On top of that, if you stay Mon-Weds, there is a 'mixer', which means free supper and drinks as well. I've only met a few of the people who work here, but they have been absolutely amazing. Melissa, the evening desk lady is amazing, as well as Sheran (don't know how it's spelled, but she checked me in at about 3 am, and is also amazing). The older lady that runs the M-W supper mixer is the nicest person you would ever meet in your life. I guess my point is that everyone here has been incredibly nice and welcoming. The location is a little off the main path, but it is quiet and clean and the people are amazing! I rated location as 4 bc i appreciate the quiet location, but if you are here to party it may not be the best place, but I never asked about taxis etc.

We were just looking for a nice, pet friendly place to stop for the night on our way home from Virginia. We booked online, got a good price, and were pleasantly surprised by the suite we stayed in and the amenities. The location is a little tricky, as you have to access the property via a large shopping mall access road. I would suggest that anyone staying there either have a GPS navigation system, or look at the location in advance on google maps (in satellite mode) to see how to access the property. I did the second option, and had no problems finding the place. Also, the location, adjacent to the mall, means that guests have a wide variety of shopping and dining choices in close proximity. And the out of the way location actually felt very secluded and secure in relation to the busy urban setting around it. Didn't get a chance to try the breakfast, as we had to leave before they started serving.... but if the breakfast was on a par with the rest of our experience, I'm sure it was more than sufficient. We'll definitely stay here again the next time we're passing through.

The room and amenities were typical Residence Inn quality, with a good breakfast, friendly staff, and clean hotel areas. We had a little difficulty finding the hotel, but were glad that it was a quiet location not too far from the freeway. We were disappointed with the evening reception, but the hostess was outgoing and friendly. A nice Courtyard was across the parking lot, but also across the parking lot was a scary low-end Baymont Inn, with questionable characters out till late at night.

My wife and I have been staying at the Residence Inn in Peoria for a while now. From the very first day we were treated as family by the people running the establishment. It is very clean and friendly, as well as comfortable. The staff is always ready and willing to make us feel welcomed and comfortable, and the breakfasts in the morning are awesome!! Our Shetland sheepdog really loves it there, and he is welcomed by the staff with treats at the front desk. The experience we have had here is way above anything we could have hoped. Also, the beds are great, and rooms are quiet!
