If you know what this hotel is here for, you will be fine. Basically Extended stay is made for a business traveler, probably visiting Oracle, who works all day and doesnt care where they stay. It is pretty much in the middle of no where, with no close restaurants (Hobies is good for breakfast, but nothing for dinner). There is... More

Having stayed at the Hotel a few days now, i think i can say that the place is pretty straight forward – in the best tense and shape. This hotel is clearly “built for purpose” – i.e. – making it more of a permanent home for business travellers, long time. Hotel are not spectacular, but rooms are large and well... More

It stinks, the room I stayed had very bad air. All the machines making horrible sounds, the fridge and the A/C. The worst hotel ever. Disgusting. Expensive and disgusting. Please, do yourself a favor, never stay here.

The grab and go breakfast was same everyday and after eating different spicy foods back in India everyday its little difficult. One of the suggestions I feel should be given priority is the... More

Room smelled like a combination of an ashtray and human urine. It was so strong it was almost unbearable. Worst smelling room I've ever stayed in. I pointed this out to the receptionist at checkout and the guest behind me said his room was also that bad.

Brown curtain is over the closet, extremely cheap. For the smell of cat urine and dander, told me to spray the room with Febreeze. stained line and towels.The rooms are about 12 foot square with a small kitchenette. You can open the door to the bathroom if you using the stove without starting a fire.

Burn marks on the the carpet. The room is non smoking. The smell of cat urine and dander. The receptionist said the was no guest registered with a cat since March. Pillows thinner than the pillow cases. Can't open the curtains because the only window is opens to the common walkway. Another example of hell on earth.

I have stayed at this hotel five times now. We just ended our most recent stay. There is a different procedure for kitchen supplies (plates/utensils/cups/pots/pans). They are no longer in place in the kitchen when you arrive, as they were in the past. Now you have to request them from the front desk. From now on, I will include the... More
