Managers on all shifts were very friendly and always went the extra mile. In fact, all of the staff were great. Nice rooms, good free breakfast service. Convenient location; however, rooms on freeway side are a bit noisy. Really enjoyed the snack nights.

The people who work here are very helpful and friendly. The "after work" food they have a couple of days a week are very nice. However, the rooms are starting to look very tired. They fitness room is laughable, tiny and old. The facility is in a great location, easy to get places like Columbia Town Center, access to major...

Was there for three nights on points. Staff were very nice and courteous. Rooms are well-appointed with the usual amenities. Complimentary breakfast is standard among Residence Inns. There is an outdoor fireplace next to the front desk. Pool is open but we did not use them, so could not comment. The location of this property is quite good, being right...

This hotel is very clean and well maintained. The staff was extremely friendly and personable. Check-in/Check-out was quick and efficient. 2-Bedroom suite was pricey for one night, but spacious and sufficient. Beds were comfortable. Room was clean. Hot buffet breakfast was well stocked: potatoes, eggs, sausage and breakfast sandwiches. Juice and coffee, pastries and muffins, fresh fruit and make-your-own waffles....

I have stayed here multiple times for business in the area. Pros: Decent Breakfast with waffle makers Rooms are decent. Cons: Hotel backs up to busy state highway, so road noise may be an issue. No alcohol served during evening receptions. No hotel shuttle. Parking very tight in hotel lot. I have chosen to stay in the Arundel Mills area...

Wonderful and friendly staff. The room was clean and mattress very comfortable. Do reserve a room away from the Highway as once in a while trucks can be heard. Breakfast was typical fare but constantly refreshed. The coffee in the lobby was available what seems like round the clock and was very good. Definitely would recommend this Residence Inn. It...

Stopped here on our driving vacation, heading home to Boston from Hilton Head. Great half-way stop and convenient to I-95, just off Route 100. Had a very nice stay and the staff was friendly. The complimentary breakfast was exceptionally good.

We were in town for a bridal shower and were very happy with the layout and cleanliness of our room. We were able to enjoy long walks for exercise in surrounding neighborhoods. The hotel was quiet and the buffet breakfasts were wonderful. We can't say enough above the girls at the front desk. They were pleasant and helpful .

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...
