Recent guest reviews

Attended a convention in town and needed a place with everything. My wife and I and our daughter and her family shared a two bedroom suite. Two separate rooms with bath complemented a large common area with a full kitchen. Full sized fridge and stove with microwave, dishwasher, pots and pans, silverware and plates. Place was clean with a hot breakfast and nice pool. Nice area. Thug free. Highly recommend.

This hotel has two buildings so if you are going with a group and kids like to meet up in the hallway know that you might end up in separate buildings. They are in the same parking lot and totally walkable. There is an outdoor patio with fireplace that is nice to sit out at night. The staff did a great job of maintaining the posted hours for the basketball court and patio. No one would need to worry about noise because they kicked everyone out after the posted hours. Friendly staff. Good breakfast right price!

We stayed here for a weekend tournament, and it was just average. The room was set up kind of weird. There was only one TV that had was between the living room and the not everyone could watch the TV at once. It was nice that there was a stove top, full size fridge and small dishwasher. It had all the essentials needed in the kitchen as well, but we didn't take advantage of any of it. The bathroom was split, with just the shower and toilet in one room and the sink out in hall. The wallpaper in the bathroom was peeling off the wall in a couple of areas and the toilet would run loudly and continuously...we had to mess around with it a couple of times to get it to stop. Housekeeping did a decent job, but he/she didn't replace the shampoo and conditioner and we unfortunately forgot to bring any, so we had to go get more from the front desk. We were in the second building, so thankful that the weather was nice enough when needing to walk to the other building. However, the buzzer on the door when entering from the outside was very loud and annoying. Another issue that happened was that not all of the girls from our team were able to book a room at this hotel (sold out), so they had to stay at a different one. They came over to our hotel to swim with their teammates and they got kicked out of the hotel along with the girls who opened the door for them. Couldn't believe that they weren't allowed to just swim with their team. Then, the lady slammed the door to the pool to make sure no one could get in. The outdoor patio also closes at 10pm apparently and the lady made sure to come out at 10:01 to tell us we needed to clean up and we had time before the light would turn off. Not sure why they needed to close the patio so early in the summer as the hotel right next door still had guests out on their patio after midnight. We were able to come inside and sit in the lobby though, just not outside. So, for the price we had to pay for the two nights ($350+), I really don't think it was worth it and would choose one of the other hotels right in the same drive the next time we are here.

We recently stayed here for four nights We had a two bedroom suite The room was spacious Check-in was easy The mobile app work well The hotel itself is conveniently located by many stores and restaurants The room was as expected The hotel it's self was fairly quiet There is a nice sized kitchen in the room Our biggest issue was with housekeeping We had asked for extra towels and washcloths We received them but then the next day they took them and left us with even less than what we started with They also did not restock the soap and coffee etc. Just a little thing that you should not have to ask for on a daily basis Also they did not run the sweeper in there every day and I only noticed it because our son had accidentally drop some things on the floor The pool area was clear Have to ask for towels down there because there were none available There is a nice sitting area outside with a grill Breakfast area was clean Food selection was OK On the weekends they gave you a paper plates and plastic ware to use

I stayed at this hotel recently on a business trip. The service was excellent. I got upgraded from one to a two bedroom suite when I checked on the app on my way there. The suites are updated for the most part, except for the bathrooms, but overall it was in great shape. Breakfast buffet was an added bonus. I would stay there again.

My high school age son and I stayed here over a soccer tournament weekend. The room was excellent. The bed very comfortable, the layout smart with a turnable TV, a full desk and pull out couch. This room could have easily slept 4 of us if our whole family was there. The receptionist was very friendly and helpful and the person responsible for the breakfast even early so we'd have the full breakfast at 6:45am instead of 7am on Sundays. The only reason this is a 4 and not a 5 is that I thought they should serve breakfast on real plates and utensils. The food was good for a self service but eating off paper plates and using plastic utensils was disappointing. It was also very nice we could walk to a great dinner spot (Tavern on Clark) from the hotel. We will definitely stay here again next time we are in Rockford!

I visit Rockford once to twice a month and always try to stay at the Residence. The only complaint I have is that last-minute booking is near impossible as they are often full. I have stayed in dozens of Residences across the country and this is only of my favorite. The rooms are always quiet and comfortable and it might be silly, but it's nice to have that bag of microwave popcorn waiting for you in the room after a long travel day. The evening mixers always have good hot food (very nice when there is a foot of snow on the ground and -20 degrees outside). Guaranteed Brianna will greet you with a smile and offer you a beverage, and if you go down more than once she will greet you by name from then on. These are only Mon-Wed so Thu you are on your own for dinner. Good upscale bar behind the hotel within walking distance as well and a seafood place out-front, but it is very pricey and not that good. They upgraded the breakfast a few months back to include more flavorful and healthier options, a big plus. Exercise room is a little small, but I go early so no troubles getting a treadmill. Outside grounds are nice, few outdoor couches and a grill if your into cooking yourself. The rooms are what you'd expect at a Residence for amenities, stove, full fridge, microwave, dishwasher, all the comforts of home. Two-bedroom varieties have a fireplace, but they are wood-burning and no free wood around, so I never used them. Gas would be nicer. All-in-all my preferred hotel in Rockford. very comfortable, very inviting staff, easy highway access, etc.

I stayed at this hotel for my son's birthday party and it was wonderful. The young lady at the front desk, I believe her name was Emily was just lovely. We needed extra blankets and help to figure out the sofa bed and she was so helpful and friendly! 5 star staff at this hotel all the way around!

I always love coming back to this hotel. The receptionist, Emily, is always super friendly and conversational. She always asks how I'm doing and is quick to help out when I have any sort of request. The mixer hostess went above and beyond to ensure everyone was enjoying their meal.

I travel for a living and stay at hotels about 250 days a year. This staff is far and away the best staff I have ever had that pleasure of staying with. Dee, Breanna, Trinity, Emily and Tori consistently went out of their way to make sure my stay was first class, they all under promised and over delivered. And greeted every guest with a smile and a warm heart. If you are anywhere near Rockford, Il this is the only hotel to consider. 5 stars all the way! BP.
