Recent guest reviews

We had sold our house quicker than planned and had nowhere to go with our pets. This place allowed us to bring our pets. The room which was a separate living and kitchen from the bedroom was very clean, very well appointed with all utensils you may need. The bed was comfy and we were pleased to not have to worry about our pets at a boarding facility. The entire location was clean, nice location, the staff were so very friendly, the weekly meet and greet with snacks and drinks was a nice touch. I would highly highly recommend this place to anyone who may be displaced for a period of time due to home sales or moving to the area. Michelle at the front desk was so wonderful in making sure we were well taken care of. Thank you to everyone.

We booked this hotel as it has a pet friendly policy and location to our new home. Shortly after booking I was contacted by the hotel concierge. I made some small requests, she asked some questions and wham we are upgraded to a 2 bedroom suite. The staff was excellent, hotel was clean, and quiet. Breakfast had a pretty good variety (typical hotel quality) but you cannot complain. Staff were always keeping it well stocked. I would recommend and did to a family member traveling with a pet. Location was very good (near shopping and highways).

Recently stayed at the Residence Inn while in town for a wedding. Pros: very friendly staff at front desk, allowed my aunt to check in early upon her arrival, clean room, comfortable bed, strong wifi, full selection of breakfast items, convenient location. Cons: plumbing fixtures in bathroom were pulling from wall, phones in room did not have directories so had to use cell to call down to front desk (no big deal, just unusual), very noisy if not on top floor...some noise is expected in any hotel, but we had people above us the first night who must have been bowling up there at 1am (not hotel's fault). Overall, it's a nice hotel, would stay here again.

This Residence Inn makes you feel like you are right at home, as part of the family. No request is too big or too small, they respond promptly and happily. No question (like how to work the TV) remains unanswered, and they come right away and help you, and make you feel comfortable and welcome. We are staying for a month between houses, and every we are coming or going are greeted and feel appreciated. Everyone of management and staff goes out of their way to help and make you feel welcome. And of course location is great and the hotel is in great shape as well.

The hotel itself is a bit old but the keep up is quite good. We stayed in a two bedroom suite, one the room door screws were loosen up. The ventilation fans in the bathrooms were very noisy & annoying. The location is very good. Close to highway, shopping center, parks & lakes. The walking trails around the Symphony Lake & Park are within walking distance. Lake Johnson is a very beautiful lake for hiking or relaxing with 10-15 minutes drive.

During a revent visit to NC, we stayed here in a 2 bedroom suite and the experience was phenomenal. Th accessibility of the facility was great and the staff was exceptional. All the amenities of the facility were just what i needed. Being in a wheelchair can be daunting,however, this place made out a cake walk. Groom the suite bathroom, large kitchen and living room, i had plenty of room to roll around and not bump into the ready off the family. Great customer service from everyone from the breakfast team to the front desk and housekeeping staff., everyone exceeded my expectations and were a testimony to the impeccable service of the Marriott brand.

Great stay. Room was nice and clean. We had no issues. This place allows pets. Had I known ahead of time, I probably wouldn't have stayed. But it was nice overall. Great area with a lot of nearby stores and restaurants

First of all, I travel for business and pleasure more than 24 weeks of the year, staying at different hotels, including Residence Inns, generally for a week at a time. I have stayed at this Residence Inn several times in the past over the last couple of years. Unfortunately, it no longer meets the high standards I enjoyed in the past. The décor is dated and tired. Although staff friendliness is good, it used to be exceptional. Breakfast is now substandard in its preparation and presentation. This morning, for example, the bacon was “rare,” sausage dry, and scrambled eggs hard. Three days this week, the coffee pot was empty when I went to fill my cup – staff was unaware. This morning, they came close to running out of coffee cups – a staff member had to bring in a fresh supply when we were there. The door lock to my room was difficult to open, multiple insertions of the key card were required to open the door. The door handle was hard to move. I stay at this hotel because of business requirements. I would not stay here otherwise – there are so many other better options.

Over the last 2 years I stay in a Residence Inn whenever one is available. I have never been disspointed. Overall Marriott's are over rated this not the RI. The pet fee is too high compared to other chains but if you stay a long time it's not too bad. It was 100 for the stay, but I only stayed two days. Staff was friendly. Breakfast was good with hot meats and eggs, the boiled eggs were good too. Pool closed at dark which I didn't like. Overall the pool was good but most RI have hot tubs. This one did not.

While visiting Raleigh for a college tour we decided to stay here for the night. The room was spacious and clean, the staff was friendly, and the location was pretty convenient. The only thing that was a little disappointing was the breakfast. It wasn't bad but they were just out of a lot (and we came down about 1hr before breakfast stopped so it wasn't last minute). But like I said overall the stay was pretty great and I would recommend staying here.
