I use this many times for business trips sometimes up to 4-5 weeks. Rooms are clean , if a little dated. Facilities in the rooms very good. Staff excellent. Location is good (for me anyhow) Prices are reasonable. Down side , not many facilities onsite for food/bar etc. Would really help. I know there are cookers in the rooms but... More

I have stayed in this hotel (and am currently staying as well) for about 18 weeks (spread across two stays) in last 8 months. Firstly, as it's true for all the hotels under ESA brand, it makes sense to stay in these hotels if you are staying for long duration or you are not getting a better deal elsewhere. I... More

Overall enjoyed our stay. Staff wasn't the most friendly and also didn't advise us "newbies" to extended stays that they don't do room service/clean up every day, that its scheduled on a weekly basis instead. They do not allow for extended check outs (lame).Also if you need extra pillows or towels you have to get them yourselves. Only items they... More

First of all, when I checked and they sent me to a room that was not clean. I had just got done with a 15 hour work day and was extremely tired. So I had to come back downstairs with all my luggage and get another key for another room. I go to the new room and use the restroom... More

The extended stay America hotel, situated on Circle star way, San Carlos, deserves a 3 to 4 star rating. We read the reviews and thought we would take a chance as we were looking for a budget stay.

I've never stayed at an Extended Stay America property before. It was better than I thought, but would need to be better for me to stay again with the chain. The location was great, close to the 101 and easy to access locations close to Palo Alto and Menlo Park. The positives - the ladies at the front desk were... More

Staff was accommodating when I made a mistake with my reservation and got me a 'no smoking' room. Easy to walk to a shopping area and close to some key roads in the Palo Alto, Stanford, San Jose area. Good value and nice rooms.

I stay at this area weekly for business and this is by far the worst experience I've had. All hotels in this area are overpriced, but at least I don't have to worry about basic accommodations. - My bed had someone's hair in the pillows, bed sheets, covers, and it was disgusting to say the least. - Bathroom had no...
