Reviewed 21 February 2017

We stayed in the one bedroom suite for 2 nights in February 2017. We checked in using the Marriott app, so everything was ready for us by the time we arrived. This hotel is located behind the Fairfield Inn, which confused us at the beginning. The hotel staff was very friendly. The room was clean, but we needed extra towels,...

Stayed with my kids in one bedroom suite for 5 days in August 2016. The front desk clerk was nice and check in was a breeze. The room was fine and comfortable for us. The indoor pool was nice and temperature comfortable. The hot breakfast was very good and some options varied daily. The location was perfect for us. Hotel...

When we first entered our room we were astonished to see dishes and cookware all in the dishwasher unwashed. Gross! We went back and asked the front desk to change to another room. Well, the second room also had some left in the dishwasher, but the remaining cookware was still available. Tired with a day of travel we decided to...

I had purchased a one night’s stay from a local TV fundraising auction. My stay at the Residence Inn in Scranton was superb. The hotel staff was knowledgeable and friendly.

We are only here for one night, passing through on our way to visit family in Ohio. The check-in could not have been more efficient or friendly! There are a few cosmetic touches that could use an upgrade, but the cleanliness of the room is great. The hotel is in a safe area, near lots of chain restaurants and some...

Stayed here two nights to visit family. Room was not ready but wait was.only 10 minutes. Room is clean.and comfy. well appointed and roomy. Like the fireplace. Breakfast was OK. Typical dry eggs and overcooked sausage. But it's free. Nice selection of baked goods. Has a pantry with OK stuff if your starving at midnight!

I think this place is very nice in that it accommodates pets. Friendly staff. Room dull but clean. Can have most excellent Chinese food delivered. Store it in refrigerator and take it with you. Decent breakfast is included. Eggs, sausage, yoghurt etc. A good stopover if you have pets.

Like the reviews I read before my trip, I agree that this property is in need of a makeover. My room was ready for early checkin on a quiet Friday, 9/30.

We stayed in this Residence Inn while moving with a pet to Boston. Last night we stayed at the Residence Inn Roanoke. What a difference a night makes Roanoke was clean and modern.
