This is not a very good property!! Rooms are aged, smell funny, paint peeling, bathrooms a mess and overall beat up. Bed was marginal at best. Patrons next door decided to have a 15 cuss out conversation outside my room. I had to politely ask them to move on. Hotel in a suspect area. Front desk personnel was very helpful...

The staff at this hotel ate awesome! They genuinely care about the guest and are extremely helpful and polite. The hotel is clean and near everything. The rates are reasonable and the staff makes it easy to pay. I would recommend this hotel to everyone traveling in the area.

I made reservations prior to arriving at the hotel. I had difficulty locating the hotel and called for directions. The clerk told me there was no availability and I needed to book elsewhere. I told her the reservation had already been made. She stated it wasn't showing in the computer. I decided to continue looking for the hotel and straighten...

The rooms are dirty and upon check-in they have to search for rooms that should be already clean. The end result is still getting a dirty room. Make sure you have your cleaning supplies with you or stop at the store and purchase bleach prior to arriving.

We arrived at 10:30 pm after an 11 hour drive from NY, expecting to check in to a room reserved a month earlier through Priceline. The lady at the desk refused to give us a room, said they were completely full, and told us to call Priceline's help number for a new room elsewhere. She had no explanation for not...

So my cousin and I had an unexpected situation and needed stay at a hotel. So we chose Extended Stay America which is a mile from her house. The room stunk and smelled like bad smoke,but I thought it could've been taken care of with Lysol or air freshener. I changed clothes and went to work. Well when I arrived...

I would never use this company again, the room was not available after we made the reservation and had driven 23 hours to get here. We have 3 kids and it was 11:30 at night and had to wait for 40 minutes for the cleaning girl to refresh the room. Not good

I stayed here a month for work. Room was beaten up, discolored roof, smelly sheets, unvaccumed carpet, huge bully roaches that dont scurry off but approach you defiantly, untinted windows so have to keep windows closed so no one can see you. Staff very slow to respond. Would not stay here again.
