New Berlin, WI
Reviewed 6 October 2015

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. The desk clerk assured me it would be taken care of during the day as other guests checked out. I packed my bag in the morning and returned at the end of the second day,...

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! The staff worked with Hilton and myself to aid me in fixing my problems and Tom (I believe it was) was a GREAT help. The staff was very courteous and the breakfast bar was delicious....

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.

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.
