This was the cheapest place to stay in Columbia. They renovated and upped their rates, I literally lived there for 8 months. I would still be there if they had honored my long term rate. The employees are great but they have seen some turn-over.

Really small bathroom - barely even close the door when you are in there. The pool was three foot to five foot deep and was fun. The breakfast was really low key, but they do have it. The staff seemed really busy, but were nice. Fax available at the main office.

Room Tip: Don't feel bad requesting a different room if you get one with ants or next to loud kids.

On the plus side, this hotel offers free, functional internet access, has a very friendly staff (every one of the 5-6 people I dealt with was friendly and capable), and is in a good location (there are restaurants, shops, and a grocery store within walking distance). On the minus side, it is undergoing refurbishment, things are poorly designed, and the cleaning was subpar. The first item isn't too distressing, since all hotels have to do this. However, it can negatively impact your stay: the water was shut off at times, the stair treads are torn up, and there were some chemical smells. I was more inconvenienced by the lack of a cupboard in which to store my clothes (there were two clothes racks with hangers, but no useable drawers or cupboards), no hand towel rack, and the shallowest toilet I have ever used (use your imagination to figure out how that might cause trouble). The fitness room was ok, with 4 machines but NO towels or water....so people get sweaty and touch the machines but then can't wipe them down. Another example of poor design is that the hotel curb is fairly high and doesn't have a luggage or wheelchair-friendly ramp. Worse, the room had not been well cleaned: there was a partly-used shampoo container on the counter, soap packaging on the floor, an old room key under the bed, the silverware had spots and bits of unknown material on it, and the top bathroom drawer was full of little hairs (like from an electric shaver). The bed was comfortable enough, and it was an ok place to stay for a few nights, but I think there are plenty of reasons why the price is lower than other nearby options.

Getting better with renovations. Noisy guests. Comfortable bed and good basics for a small studio room with kitchenette. Lots of closet space. Noisy air conditioning, but kept the room cool. Good for quick business trip.

It hardly looked like a studio space because the designer at Extended Stay America at Columbia Corporate Park, Columbia, MD, brilliant laid out the functional spaces -- kitchen, bedroom, TV viewing room and bath/dressing room separately in an "L" design. The effect was to transform the "studio"(the French call it a "pied a terre"--big enough for one foot on the ground)--into a spacious hotel room.

A king sized bed dominated the pleasantly sunny bedroom. Windows, wrapped around the exterior wall of the room, opened onto the smart landscaping Columbia Corporate Park is noted for. The kitchenette was clean and tiny and amply stocked for light dining.

Kudos to the technology of the hotel. The WiFy responded to my touch, heating was perfectly regulated and with a small nudge the TV faced my bed at night and the sitting room recliner during the day.

I was greeted warmly by Vicki on my arrival and spent the rest of the afternoon relaxing in my studio, surrounded my every amenity I could want for well under ninety dollars. You can't do much better than this on the road today.

Room Tip: Take a chance with Extended Stay America

We enjoyed our stay at Extended Stay America, Columbia Corporate Park Feb, 2013. The staff, especially Michele, were friendly and helpful and seemed interested in how our visit was going and if we needed anything. The hotel was quiet and clean, for the most part. The carpet and furniture and the shower is in need of updating and cleaning, but inspectors came around taking measurements in preparation for renovations. We were happy to hear that, since the lounge chair really had that "homey" look--as if it came from Frazier's dad on TV. The shower and tub did not look clean. It looked as if someone had begun to clean the soap scum and abandoned the idea. There was a rusty "trough" in the center of the tub where the water pooled. This slanting toward center made it tricky to turn around. I almost fell a couple of times. We did not mind that there was no housekeeping, since we prefer not to have intrusions while we are in a hotel. There were ample towels and washcloths and we were able to get clean sets at the front desk when needed.There appeared to be too much furniture which made it difficult to pass someone sitting in the lounge chair to get to the bed area. The TV could not be seen from the table--would have been better to place it on the wall where they had the lounge chair and it could be seen from anywhere in the room. If they update the rooms and clean or replace the shower and furniture, we would stay again.
