I've stayed her for over a year now so, I know this place well. I've found it to be a very nice Extended Stay hotel.
The rooms have twin burner stoves, a full fridge, complete sets of pots and pans as well as plates and bowls. Also, they supply 2 sets of silverware and cooking utensils. This can save you money as you can cook your own meals.
The hotel offers free WiFi though they offer 2 types of WiFi. The free WiFi is what they call WiFi light. The speed is around 85k per second. They offer a WiFi that is 2 and 1/2 times faster but, you will have to pay up to $20 a month for it. In order to use it, you'll have to get a code which changes monthly from the reception desk.
Also, the hotel offers a laundry room where you can wash your clothes for $2 a wash and $2 to dry. The reception desk can sell you quarters if you don't have them.
Maid service wise, you get once a week maid service. I've found they do a fine job.
If you have any problems, I've found the folks at reception very helpful particularly Paula, Josephine and the manager Claudia.
Parking is adequate and Karim does a fantastic job of salting the sidewalks if it snows.
The location is very handy as it's 2 or 3 minutes from Maryland 32 which will take you to Maryland 295 - the Baltimore Washington Parkway or Interstate 95 or Interstate 70.
If you don't feel like cooking, the hotel offers a service where you can order food and, they'll deliver it to your room. If you find that pricey, there is a Dunkin Donuts about 500 feet away. A McDonald's, Subway shop, pizza shop and Chinese food shop are all within walking distance of the hotel.
The hotel does welcome pets though I can't tell you how that works.
Overall, I've been very pleased with this Extended Stay. I've seen reviews where people dissed the place. I don't know what happened with their stays. I've found this hotel to very responsive to any problems guests have. If you're in the Jessup/Columbia/Laurel area, this Extended Stay is worth considering.
