My husband and I had to stay at the hotel for 8 weeks and it was nearly a nightmare. Staff seemed great, friendly, and accommodating; however, this goes away once you're there for a while (which is its intended purpose). They claim to be pet-friendly, however half the staff were scared of my 2 under 20 lbs dogs. They skipped...

We only stayed here for two nights. The room was fairly clean and well appointed for a compact self-catering type room. The staff were professional and friendly and the small shop was adequately stocked.

I have to give a big Thank you to the girl that worked the front desk. I believe her name is Iris, and she went above her duties to help us. The hotel in all was very quite, considering it totally booked. A few things that I didn't like was the lack of a covered area to un-load your suitcases,...

Our family of four stayed here for six nights over the Christmas holiday week. Receptionist on arrival was friendly, however, after her we encountered others who seemed less than happy to be at work. At one stage, we went downstairs to collect extra towels, only to find the receptionist asleep at the desk. Our room was decently sized, but next...

The ONLY downside to this place is that there isn't a breakfast option in the mornings (unless you want to buy from their convienence store?). But this room was amazing! Brought my group of students here for a two day youth conference just to stay one night, and we were all amazed at how nice the hotel was. I think...

After being a resident of a Staybridge, I was amazed at how bad my stay here was. Not only did housekeeping not wash my floors or my bathroom sink, but sitting out in the gazebo was shortened when a rat was crawling up and down the building and crawling around the gazebo! Washing machines were broken and housekeeping staff was...

Needed room last minute. Found hotel online and was cheapest room, so I was expecting cheap. Polite staff helped get best rate. Very clean and well organized. In walking distance to multiple dining choices. Late checkouts. Worked out great.

My wife loved this hotel, so that's all that matters, right? But seriously, I found it to be very comfortable but plain and simple, and she found it to be spacious and well-decorated.
