“Land o' Filth and Smoker's Delight”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed August 10, 2010

Yes, all similar reviews are true - my own fault for not checking beforehand but at least I can add one further testimony. The entire building does reek of cigarettes, including the "non-smoking" rooms (ours even came with an ashtray next to the "Thanks for not smoking" sign)! The dishes were unwashed (the lipstick on a glass was the giveaway). The carpets were disgusting (after my baby crawled around for 5 minutes her knees were black). Find someplace else.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 15, 2010

My partner and I were just going to Cincinnati for the weekend and didn't want to spend a ton on fancy hotel. We got this on Priceline for $30/night, and it was well worth it. The lobby area wasn't much, and the hallways weren't super clean-looking, but the room was very clean. The kitchen was fully stocked with silverware and dishes, and the room was pretty big.

The only thing I didn't like was the constant smell of stale cigarette smoke that permeated every square inch of the hotel. If you're especially sensitive to cigarette smoke, you'd be wise in choosing a different hotel.

we stayed here this weekend thinking this would be a nice hotel looks great from the outside but filthy on the inside( we only stayed here because of compensation from the last time at a extened stay america in Sharronville ohio stay away from it also Bar next door and loud music all night and filthy) any way the one in florence we woke up sat morning and fliped on the light and cockrachers were every where in the kitchen running over everything. they moved us to another room on the same roach filled floor and that room didnt have the trash emptied and wasnt ready for guest. we went to the Creation Museum (which i recommend for everyone) and when we came back we coulndt stay we packed and left and just gave up our other night The district manager offered us another free stay but we dont want it . Check the reviews on other extened stays most have bad reviews i will never use Extened stay again not even if its free!

This facility has such great accomodations. We had never stayed in one of these properties before. The price was extremely competitive. We loved having our own bedroom, living room, bath and kitchen. The staff was wonderful -helpful, knowledgable, and kind. My husband has special needs because of his medical condition and the staff went above and beyond the call of duty to help us in every way they could. The suite is like a small studio apartment. The elevator was a great help. A great place for a single night or several weeks. We plan to stay in properties from this family of Extended Stay Hotels whenever we can.

Checked in May 10 and ran out May 13. Reserved in advance, thought the prior review regarding the stench of cigarette smoke may have been overstated...IT WAS NOT!!!
Today I am washing every item of clothing that we had in our suitcases due to the strong odor of smoke. How on earth can your clothes, in a suitcase, absorb the smell of smoke?? Good grief, I have never had this problem before and have learned a valuable lesson....heed the reviews!
We noticed cigarette burns in the carpet and also a burn on the arm of the couch. Non-smoking should mean that no one has smoked in that room, not that you have placed a sign in a smoking room.
So, if you do not smoke and prefer a room without the stench of smoke, DO NOT stay at StudioPlus.

Just walking into the office to check in, the place reeked of smoke. We had asked for a non-smoking room. The room smelled like stale smoke and there was even an ashtray in the room (along with a no-smoking sign!) There was also a dirty towel in the bathroom - which doesn't give you a warm, fuzzy feeling about the cleanliness. My husband and I changed hotels and decided that we would call this place the Studio Minus.

My family has stayed in this facility numerous times since it opened for both business and pleasure. We have always found the rooms to be clean and in great condition.

The pots and pans in the kitchen are always in good to excellent condition.

We especially like that it is located adjacent to a Meijer where we usaully buy our food for the stay. This store has an excellent produce and meat department and also carries a vast selection of kitchen utensils to suppliment what the hotel provides.

  • Liked — Kitchen and proximity to restaurants and grocery
  • Disliked — Cant' think of a thing!
