“Good place & inexpensive”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 3, 2013 via mobile

For some reason the iPad app won't allow me to list multiple months at this hotel, but I did stay for 101 days straight while working literally 5 minutes away. My office was one exit down I-40 so the location of this hotel was fabulous. Plenty of restaurants, gas stations, etc., nearby. One bummer is the closest grocery store and closest drug stores are like 15 minutes away, but that's not a big deal.

On the staff, they are simply fabulous, extremely nice, friendly and professional. Housekeeping also does a great job cleaning up the place. Some of the friendliest hotel staff I've ever had the pleasure of meeting! That says a lot as I've been traveling professionally now for the last 32 years!

Parking is okay, but the lot really isn't as roomy as one would expect, add to it I normally park in handicapped spots and yet they were filled with vehicles WITHOUT handicapped parking permits! But not that big a deal, I just think the Management team should pay more attention to that. One other issue is when I parked in the handicapped spots, both front and rear, I'd come out the next morning and find cigarette butts on my car, someone spitting on it, all obviously from one of the floors above. Simply put, too many immature idiots staying there. Parked across the lot backed in and no one ever bothered my car again, and those people without the parking permits were back in those spots. Again, the Management team needs to pay closer attention to that!!

Now on the rooms...well, they are plenty large and you have lots of items in them (desks, chairs, recliner, etc.) and a nice kitchenette with a full-sized refrigerator, microwave and sink. Great flatscreen TV. No dishwashers so be ready to hand wash your dishes. Oddly, housekeeping doesn't do the dishes! That to me is a big negative and ridiculous, but the Management said that was their policy (idiotic!).

Bathroom is plenty large, excellent shower with nice, hot water. Also it's got great water pressure, which most hotels, even the 5 star ones, don't have very good water pressure in their showers. Now one thing that, to me, is a negative item is that they have the old style straight shower curtain rod - personally I hate those as I can't stand the shower curtain touching me! Now that connects to the largest negative issue with this hotel - and if they corrected this it would be a 5 star place!

The entire hotel, as in everything there, is old, as in ancient! Carpets are rumply and filthy, sticky to your feet and walking on them dirties your feet! Pillows are lumpy and suck. Bed is old but it is comfy. Everything in the room but the TV is so old they should be replaced! I'd bump up their rating from three to four stars if the just installed those curved shower rods! Sheets, pillow cases, blankets and bedspreads are so old and thin they are pathetic. Towels, half the time they are great, the others suck, but not that bad - at least they are clean.

In summary, it's a good and inexpensive place to stay long term, it's not bad but not great, there aren't any safety or crime issues that I'm aware of, the staff is very nice, all in all I'd say this is a good place for people to stay who are on per diem, or don't have a lot of money. Regardless of any of my negative comments, if I had to stay in that area again I'd go back to this hotel!

As an FYI, I stayed there from the beginning of September through the beginning of December, 2012.

We recently stayed at the hotel for about a month, while working on a project in RTP. The staff was excellent, very friendly and eager to help. The rooms were clean and I loved that there was a kitchen. Overall a great value.

We booked this hotel on Priceline, thought we had gotten a great deal. But I almost ended up just calling the Homestead and booking a room there and just paying the 80.00 plus loosing out on what we had already paid for Priceline. The first room they tried to put us in smelled so badly of smoke that there is no way we could have stayed in it. Then, the next rooms we got moved to ended having No A/C. We were all Burning up and completely miserable. Then they had the maintenance guy put in a new A/C unit. He told me that in 15 minutes the room would be unbearably cold. After an hour, it was STILL HOT!!!! No A/C. So they sent him in again. He turned on the Compressor this time. STILL NO A/C. So, they moved us again!!!! This time the Air worked, but the TV didn't work well, and there was NO Wifi! AND>>>>> Worse than that, the planes were flying over us every 5 minutes and they were SOOOO LOUD!!!!! Especially when trying to sleep, plus it scared my kids so bad too. So, all in all? Miserable time. We completely missed out on our whole day of activities just waiting on A/C. Liked the ESA on Regency Parkway ALOT Better!

Room Tip: there is no good room here.

"I recently received a copy of your review of the Extended Stay America Raleigh - RDU Airport. Our company prides itself on providing great service and great rooms at great rates, which is why I was so disappointed to read your post. Please accept my most sincere apologies.

As this hotel’s manager, I challenge our staff to continually improve the experience of our guests, from the cleanliness of our rooms, to the courteous professionalism of our staff. Unfortunately, in your situation, it is clear that we were unsuccessful in achieving these goals. Given our belief that guests like you are our most valuable asset, this failure is particularly troubling.

Your review has caused us to take a serious look at the systems we have in place to handle our day to day operations and we will be making modifications as appropriate.

It's not common that we get the sort of feedback you provided, and although it is discouraging to read, it will help us make our hotel even better in the future. Let me apologize again that your stay was not completely satisfying, and assure you that we will continue to listen to our guests in forums like this one or directly (please visit our website and click the Contact Us link at the bottom of the page). I hope we have addressed your concern satisfactorily, and that you would give us the pleasure of having you as a guest again at this hotel or any other Extended Stay Hotels(sm) brand location in the future."

We stayed here as we need to go back to the airport as our bags did not arrive. The hotel is 5 mins away from the airport. We had been given a voucher by American Eagle to stay here so we were not paying!! The room was not the best but the staff really looked after us as we did not have any luggage then lent me a hairdryer to use and they said not to worry about check out time. 5 star service but I would not recommend the rooms if you were paying as they have not been cleaned.

Room Tip: Stay some where else until they sort out there cleaning

I recently received a copy of your review of our hotel. Our company prides itself on excellent guest service, so it was gratifying to read your feedback about our staff. I would like to give you my most heartfelt apology regarding the part of your stay that was not satisfactory.

We know that our guests have multiple hotel choices, which is why our mission is to provide clean, comfortable rooms at an affordable price that guests want to come back to. The room cleanliness you describe is totally unacceptable to me and not at all representative of our quality standards. In response to your post, I have met with our hotel staff and used your review to help coach them on room cleaning and inspection policy.

Let me apologize again that your stay was not completely satisfying, and assure you that we will continue to listen to our guests in forums like this one or directly (please visit our website and click the Contact Us link at the bottom of the page). I hope we have addressed your concern satisfactorily, and that you would give us the pleasure of having you as a guest again at this hotel or any other Extended Stay Hotels(sm) brand location in the future.
