Spent one night with my son and three friends for his birthday. Great location close to home for a night away. Welcomed wonderfully by front desk staff who was very pleasant and accommodating. She even found us some butter microwave packets. Pool was a little small but nice and warm and fine for some fun for my son and his... More

I have stayed in several hotels and am an average person with minimal expectations. I am warning everyone who reads this -- Do Not Stay Here!!!! I am in the process of moving to the area and needed temporary quarters for approx 60 days. I was told there was an outdoor pool (trivial I know) but there was only a... More

I was attending a conference at Penn State Great Valley / Malvern where my group was hosting a conference and booked a room at the Extended Stay next to the campus. Paid for a suite. Was switched to another Extended Stay nearby owned by the same company. No suite... small room, less amenities. Stayed in this location several times prior.... More

This is a very adequate hotel. Nothing fancy but clean and fabulous staff. Nice to have the larger room with separate bedroom. Kitchen is useful as well. Lots of parking and a small pool. While a bit old/tired, it's way fresher now that they've gone smoke-free

We've been staying in "cheap hotels" all summer (team sports travel) and this was the most expensive and worst one so far. The room was 100 degrees and smelled awful when we arrived! We were handed sheets for our pull out bed and told to make it ourselves (like a youth hostel!) The a/c was broken in our hallway and... More

The hotel is fine but the reservation system is horrid, if you do book here get all you asked for in writing....include room type, floor choice and any other request as we did not and got none of the agreed things and the agent quit 1 week before we arrived

The Extended Stay America I stayed was on Morehall close to Swedesford Road, so hopefully it's the same hotel! My boyfriend and I stayed here on a Friday and Saturday this month. The room was clean, however it smelled like cooking food. I do not fault the hotel for this, but it's a good thing the windows opened and we... More

Our room was on the 3rd floor, and as soon as you get off the elevator you are hit by the DISGUSTING smell of stale cigarettes, as the smoking rooms are in the hall directly off the elevator. Thankfully our room was down the hall and around the corner and we didn't smell anything in our room. When we got... More

Travelling with a spouse and two kids (14 yo boy and 7 yo girl) is difficult enough and trying to find a hotel that allows for adequate sleeping arrangements is as well, let alone the cost of this. We had the room with 2 queen beds and a pullout and we could not have been happier with the layout of... More

I'd have loved this hotel IF 1) I was in college or on a family vacation and 2) understood the brand a bit better before arriving and most of all 3) if it was clean. What caused me to give a poor rating was that it was fairly untidy- it was obvious a lot in the room wasn't clean- old... More
