We booked this place based on the reviews we'd read here. We thought it sounded pretty nice and especially reasonable. We were only looking for a decent, CLEAN place to sleep while we spent all day sightseeing. The room was NOT clean.
The surrounding area was seedy, and we felt very uncomfortable. Although there was a security guard that I think was around all night. However, there wasn't anyone at the front desk.
When we got into the area we immediately had misgivings. We originally pulled up to the wrong Extended Stay that was only several blocks away (across from a convience store). There were 5 squad cars in the parking lot and on the street. Thankfully we realized we were at the wrong place. Whatever was going on there, we have no idea.
When we found the right place we felt a little better (even though it was only a minute or 2 away, in the same neighborhood). This hotel looked a little more modern and well kept, and the doors to the hotel rooms were NOT entered directly from outside (as was the other place). You used a key card to enter the building, and then walked to your room.
The lobby gave the appearance that it was an o.k. place.
The first NON smoking room we were given just reeked of stale cigarettes. The furniture and carpet was stained, and the couch upholstery was ripped. (this was what I saw from just a quick glance). We don't like to complain, but I did, on the hopes that we could only improve on the situation.
We were given the room next door, and it was just as bad, only this room didn't have the cigarette smell. It had a horrible rotten (dead) smell, that was covered up by some kind of disgusting powdery stench. Very sickening... but we found that after being in there for a couple of minutes you didn't notice it. We dealt with it because we figured all the rooms would be similar. We felt we had no other alternative.
The furniture and carpet was badly stained. There were extra sheets in the room and we threw them over the furniture and then felt comfortable enough to sit.
Although it seemed basically clean, every textured or grooved surface had ground in grim or crusted on yuck. There were drips, and what looked like cat footprints on the kitchen cabinets, and things like this.
On the brighter side, I would have to say that it was large enough, and fairly modern. The towels were clean and white looking. The sheets appeared to be clean.
The desk clerks were pleasant.
We were very happy to find that we didn't have to stay for the entire length that we'd booked. We were not penalized when we found somewhere else to stay, and very happily left early..
