I'm a plumber and have been here for a week. my family came up to stay with me on Thursday and we checked out on Saturday. Their so called breakfast was oatmeal, coffee, fruit and granola bars. There was no juice or milk for the kids to drink or even those little box cereals. The room had a distinct odor... More

Because this was a value based trip my expectations were not set high. I needed a place for a couple of nights and the Extended Stay America fit the bill both location and financial wise. We noticed how clean and well maintained the Hotel was iupon our arrival. The staff (Mario) was great and treated us noticably well. The room... More

The room was disgusting. It was dark and depressing inside the hallways, and smelled awful from the elevator through the hallways and in the room. The room was beyond dirty. I question whether they cleaned beyond just making the bed. The staff was very friendly and helpful, though.

If not for the staff, I would have checked out after the first night. The room looked nothing like the internet site layout. It was mostly clean but the shower had moldy places and a warped floor. The bed was AWFUL - loud and hard and crappy sheets/comforter. The pillows weren't bad. The staff was friendly and happy. The grab... More

I basically liked everything about this hotel, except the location. I have no idea why anybody would build a hotel this far from civilization. Maybe because of cheap land? I don't know. What I do know is it is not near anything of use and is far from the freeway.

From the outside, this hotel is in a nice location and looks to be clean and well maintained. The inside rooms, however, are a different story. Check in was very easy and staff was very friendly. Upon entering my room, however, I noticed that the bathroom fan was already on. In retrospect, I understand why. If the fan was not... More

The hotel had a horrible smell, the room was not clean and was not properly stocked. I will never stay here again. For example, when we first checked in there was a spilled ash tray in the hall. Three days later it was still there. I didn't even realize until I was walking to my room that the hotel permitted... More
