It is a decent place to stay. We stayed in a studio. Our room was comfortable and clean. It had the things you would need for an extended stay - fridge, mini kitchen, and some seating space. It is kinda a no-frills place but the décor is streamlined and uncluttered. The gym was tiny. I think this would be a...

Room was very comfortable however, the mattress was a little soft for my liking. It seemed to have a soft ( wore out) spot in it that I kept rolling into. Might be time to change out some mattresses. Front desk staff friendly and helpful. Would stay here again

I was on business in Baltimore last week and was relocated to Columbia due to the riots. My company moved me to this property for the remainder of my stay, 3 nights. I would have preferred a more typical hotel experience with a full restaurant, indoor pool, etc., but the property was extremely clean and the service outstanding. A couple...

We prefer to keep our car when visiting cities, then drive to places we choose to explore. This residence inn was well maintained, and for us, a good location. We visited Baltimore and Ellicott City, and within minutes, we drove to the Residence Inn. It was also a convenient 10-minute drive to Toby's Dinner Theater, Columbia Mall, and other places...

Staff were very friendly at check-in. They had yummy chicken tacos during the (free!) evening social. During this time, they were constantly re-filling and cleaning the area. Our room was huge and was recently renovated. The kitchen was fully stocked with dishes, etc. Everything smelled new and clean. My bed was super comfortable. The wifi worked perfectly and was free....

We are currently staying at this hotel and can't say enough about how great it is. The staff have truly gone above and beyond to make us feel at home. We've been there about a week and half.
