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 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

Bring Lysol wipes and cleaner because there is no access to them. Maybe a vacuum as well and washcloths. Just very dirty and the response is because it is a self sufficient hotel. WiFi is as slow as dial up and you cannot check your email or stream videos for the kids. Would not stay here again. I learned my... More

This was our first time staying at an Extended Stay America property. In this general area (Wayne/Great Valley, PA) there are quite a few extended-stay type of hotels from various chains. In fact, there are three of the Extended Stay America hotels alone within a 5-10 minute drive. The competition is (or should be) intense here, due to many area... More

Not the cleanest hotel! Dirty dishes, countertops and floors. Broken drawers. Faulty faucets. Loud heater and refrigerator. And the flickering hallway lights gave the place a 'spooky' feeling. One good thing - staff was very friendly. Seems like the place needs a complete overhaul. I don't recommend this hotel.

I am staying at the Malvern Extended Stay for a 3 month job assignment. The rooms are clean, comfortable with desk area and kitchen, and it is easy access to the commute on Route 202. The pool and exercise room are well maintained and clean. The staff is friendly and helpful, especially answering questions about local restaurants and addresses. The... More
