I absolutely loved this hotel. The rooms were very roomy, and loved the kitchens, definitely will think of this place for any long term stays needed. I only stayed two nights this time, but the beds were amazing and Jenn, who checked us in was very friendly and gave great recommendations for our dinner that night. I didn't catch the breakfast lady's name, but she was very friendly as well. Only negative thing was, I was in building 11 right against the traffic and it was quite noisy. But It was very nice, and was the great short getaway that I was hoping for. :-)

I stayed here for over 70 consecutive nights and I can tell you one thing, the crew working at this hotel made my entire visit to Florida. Latonya greeted me at the front desk on my first night and was just as kind and caring on the first night to my last day here. Every morning Juliana, Jen, Trevor, and Vicky worked the front desk and were incredibly sweet and always helped me with anything I needed. The breakfast spread was incredible and honestly one of the highlights of my stay here. The woman who makes the breakfast, Tommy, puts out a variety of delicious cooked foods also including a lot of healthy options, and I tell you I never left hungry. The head of maintenance, Mark, went out of his way to help me move a large heavy item into my room and was always so pleasant when I saw him. Every single crew member at this hotel is truly so amazing and helpful and I am so happy I was able to meet them all. They are a great crew and will always go out of their way to make your stay as comfortable as possible.

Great service at this Residence Inn. Normally stay at a regular Marriott or Courtyard, so this was a first time at this brand. From the very first night at check-in, Jennifer at the front desk was excellent. Late arrival and she took the extra time to assist with room arrangements above and beyond, answered questions we had about our vacation itinerary, provided personal insights on things to do, and made us feel like we were platinum members. I frequently visit the Marriott by my corporate office and with the service here, one would think I was a frequent visitor at this location... Model for customer service for all Marriotts!! Shawna B, our suite attendant, was also great, very helpful, and assisted with our requests. Only reason didn't give 5 stars was because of location; it's a bit difficult in and out of parking lot being right off the main road.

Our stay was a great one. We were there for an entire week. Our room was clean and had a home like feel. We enjoyed all the amenities, solid breakfast every morning, the clean outside areas, beautiful pool, along with the small things, as they even did some grocery shopping for us. All the staff we encountered was friendly, courteous and helpful. Really want to say thank you for making our stay feel like home. To the people behind the front desk, Juliana, Trevor and Jenn, many thanks for all the help. A special thanks to one of our housekeepers Alisi, you made my mom not miss home so much. Also, to the rest of the staff, even though we might not of caught your name, thank you. You should be proud of everyone working for you.

The manager here - I believe his name is Justin - is the greatest! I booked the 2-bedroom suite here online, mistakenly thinking it was the Marriott on Clearwater beach so you can imagine when we pulled up here with my family of 4 and saw no beach in sight! Anyway, I fully expected to have a difficult time changing my reservation and I can tell you that I was absolutely surprised to see that the manager not only fixed my reservation and also checked the location and gave me directions to the one I actually wanted. While he was doing this, I checked out the very clean and nice rooms, the 2 bedroom suites are very pleasant, with a lot of room and a nice kitchen and working desk area. I would definitely stay here if I ever need to. Nice little courtyard, basketball court, and pool. Truly this manager is a great ambassador for the brand! Thank you!

My wife and I stayed here and were pleasantly surprised. The young lady at the front desk was very nice. She gave us directions to a couple of places to eat in the area. The room was spacious, clean and nice. We didn't get to the pool because it started to downpour. Next time we are in the area, we will be back.

Very clean and comfortable rooms. Grate service.I lived there for about 1.5 years due business travel support and never has a problem there. Good breakfast and week snacks Also have a not big but useful gym..

I stopped for directions and ended up staying there 2 days. Trevor at the front desk was a real pro - finding solutions to all my questions. And, Tommy in the breakfast room made it the best (cleanest and best stocked) I've ever experienced in a buffet breakfast! This proved to be a vastly more excellent choice than where we had made our initial reservations.

If this review was about Latonya, it would have been a 4 or 5 star. After my bad experience at the TownePlace Suites next to the Residence Inn, Latonya listened to my experience and tried to help me the best she could. There was only 1 two-bedroom suite available. Because the person in that room had a late checkout, the room was not serviced. We did have to wait 2 hours before that room was ready. Now, I have stayed at this hotel before and I never had an issue. Until my 2nd night! For some reason, my a/c broke down. At 1:00AM my family and I woke up because of how HOT it was. It was 80 degrees in the suite. They were able to send someone to take a look at the a/c but he could not figure it out. They did tell me that the morning manager would be in at 7am and they will fix the situation. However, it was now 9:30 an no one had visited my room. After I went to the front desk to question it, they finally sent someone to fix the air around 11:30am. At this time we had already decided to check out and just go home. They do need to remodel their sofa bed. They are just old. And remove the fireplaces. To be honest, I will stay here again. I am hoping this was just a one time bad experience at the Residence Inn.

The one bedroom King suites are larger than most RI properties. Full kitchen including a complete range with oven whereas most now just have only a 2 burner cook top. A table by the kitchen that seats 2 plus another dining area in the corner of the living room which can seat 4. Plenty of closet and drawer storage. The bathroom is secluded away from the bedroom. Good selection of TV channels compared to other hotels. This would be perfect for an extended stay of several months or more. It is an older property which has been very well maintained and updated. Unlike the newer RI's with interior halls, this property has numerous 2 story building clusters with 8 rooms upstairs and 8 downstairs. No elevator and I believe the one bedroom suites are all upstairs. So up until now I was completely satisfied with my stay and room. Then I went down for breakfast. It is a very small, tight spaced dining room and hard to move around. You also have to squeeze yourself between seated guests to get to a table. When I arrived most of the tables were empty but every single one of them was dirty and needed cleaning off. It was obvious that the ONE person responsible for cooking and keeping the entire breakfast buffet stocked, is overworked with no time to clean. Yet, two employees were behind the front desk just chatting away until I approached them and asked if there was someone who could come clean the tables. Also, the trash bins were overflowing and needed to be emptied. The buffet itself is typical of what you expect to get at any RI.
