The hotel is right off of MD 100, one of the older style Residence Inns. However renovations and upgrades have done a great job keeping the hotel relevant. The room was clean, but I did notice the bathroom cabinets looked like the 1980s style wooden cabinets we had in our first home. Nothing against the hotel but obviously a cost...

My mom friends (in our early 40s) escape to this hotel at least once a year and always enjoy our stay. First, we had a 2 bedroom unit and I was allowed to check in about 2 hours early. The young lady at the front desk was extremely nice and helpful. It was an unusually warm Saturday in February so...

Front desk clerk super nice, gave us a suite. Super clean. Everything about the place is great, will be back. Nice to have a full kitchen so we cooked dinner😄 Pull out sofa was actually comfortable.

Very clean and easy to get to. Gets busy on the weekends. Recommend you get a room away from the highway. Can get loud. Do not count on the pull out to sleep on.

I spent 6 nights here at the end of Oct. I cannot speak highly enough about the staff. I had a couple minor issues with my room and the housekeeping staff contacted maintenance for me when I mentioned the issues. The front desk staff was friendly, helpful and went above and beyond with any requests. I was looking for a...

Stayed while attending a family wedding. Can be noisy, as it is right next to a freeway. A little older and a little smaller than most Residence Inns. In our 1 bedroom suite the only bathroom was through the bedroom, it seems to me some properties have 2 bathrooms. Well maintained, good staff, good breakfast.

Really liked this hotel! I needed to check into the hotel early at least 2 hours early and they were more than willing to work with me. My room was beautiful! A 2 bedroom suite with a fireplace, full kitchen, and bathrooms in both of the private rooms.

After a sleepless night in a room facing the highway, at 6:30 a.m. the next morning I requested a room change farther from the highway.

My group and I were given no choice but to stay here because of a HUGE screw up by Hilton. It ended up being great!
