Residence Inn at Fossil Creek – Fort Worth, TX

My thoughts on the Residence Inn at Fossil Creek…

Good points:
Your rate includes a free breakfast.
They have a nice, clean pool and hot tub.
There are a lot of good restaurants within one mile.
Suites have a kitchen with dishwasher if you want to cook.
There is a gas grill available for use.

Bad points:
My room was not so clean.
There was mildew in the bath tub and on the shower curtain.
They didn’t vacuum behind furniture
The General Manager didn’t return my phone calls very promptly.

I wouldn’t stay there again.
