“Not the best, not the worst!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 7, 2014

We were in town for the Final Four activities and stayed 3 nights. Our room was fine except for the strong smoke smell and the lack of a blanket on the bed. I've never stayed in a hotel that thinks the gross bedspread should also be your blanket. When we asked for one at the front desk, they said they just gave the last one away. Really? If you have a sister hotel just a few miles away you may think of checking to see if they would have the amenities and if they could send some over. Blankets should be standard. We didn't utilize the kitchenette except the fridge. It was pretty quiet during our stay so no complaints about that. There is a Cracker Barrel restaurant right next door and a Wendy's and gas station within walking distance. Other than that, there isn't too much to get to within walking distance. The Cowboy and Ranger stadiums are a short 10 min drive. Dallas is more like a 30 minute drive on a weekend.

I think this was the worse hotel I have ever stayed in. My room was changed from a double to a queen w/ sleeper sofa w/o my knowledge. When we got into the from it smelled like throw up. It had no pots, toilet paper, soap, or towels. The cable in the room did not work. Someone brought a pot and aid freshener and I picked up the toilet paper, soap. They sent over a maintenance worker to fix the cable. Meanwhile, I took my kids to six flags and returned later. The room still smelled and when they pulled out the sofa bed it was not clean. It had a dirty red sheet on it, chocolate morsels and other food particles on it. It even had a medicine cup and child's boot folded up in it. The front desk was kind enough to comp. my stay for the night but we were moved to a single bed room for the night as it was said there were no other rooms available. It was uncomfortable w/ a14(boy) & 9(girl). We were moved back to the other room the next afternoon and it was clean but still had a bad odor. I purchased my own air freshener.

I apologize for the level of cleanliness and odors in your room and I am working with our entire staff to improve our cleaning procedures to ensure your experience is not repeated. Also, I’m sorry to hear about your maintenance issues. I met with our entire staff to review our maintenance policies so that this issue does not affect our future guests. Please know, while we do not offer toiletries in our guest rooms, we do have an amenity basket available at the front desk for guests to enjoy upon request. As well, we are happy to exchange dirty towels for clean ones at the front desk.

My wife and I stay 3 nights at this Extended Stay facility and we were both impressed with not only the physical facility but also the staff. We were greeted by cheerful young ladies who offered us additional soap, shampoo, etc.

I was attending a 2 day SQL Server event that was split between the Microsoft campus and the UT Arlington campus. This facility was nicely located for each if those.

The room included a kitchenette with a refrigerator, microwave, and cooktop along without some cookware, some plates, silverware, bowls, cups, and glasses. All in all, especially for a longer stay, this would be a great choice. (It is also fairly convenient to the Arlington Six Flags. ;-) My wife and I recommend this facility highly, especially for the price!

To be honest, I had an issue with the service there leading me to beleive Extended Stay America does not value their customers but I was wrong. The day after check out I received an email from ESA asking me to review my stay. I completed the survey including my disappointment with the service and to my surprise I received a verp prompt email from the ESA manager appologizing for the disappointing stay and offering a voucher if I would consider staying at Extended Stay America again. I responded to the email and soon after received another email from the GM also appologizing and including a very kind attempting to make thing right. The fact that both the Manager & GM took the time send me an email regarding the survey really showed that this nationwide company does care about their each customer. Thank you Manager & GM!! I will defiantly stay at Extended Stay America again.

The staff were extremely rude and unconcerned! My husband is handicap and we were put in a room upstairs! The room smelled like smoke but had a no smoking sign outside the door. The microwave didn't work. The bed was uncomfortable. The staff refused to bring us towels and tissue when our room didn't have it. I will never ever stay there again!

Very friendly hotel staff. Made reservations online - good rate. Reserved for 2 weeks. Check-In staff was friendly. After 2 days at my job I was told I would only be needed 2 more days. I went back to the hotel to see that they could do and the clerk was friendly and helpful. She put a credit on my credit card. Then 2 more days later I was told at work I would be needed for another week. I made another visit to the office, the manager was there that time. He was friendly and put the credit back on my card. Very friendly staff. Room was clean and always
cleaned each day. Exterior of hotel was always clean. Next door to Cracker Barrel. Just off
Hwy 360. No traffic noise in hotel. I would return.

Room Tip: Less than a mile from lots of places to eat and across street from Six Flags.
