I was greatly surprised by how nice this hotel was. We stayed at an Extended StayAmerica in Dublin, OH last year and did not have a great experience, so I was a little nervous when the ESA popped up as my winning hotel on my Priceline bid. The going rate for two guests was $60/night plus tax during our visit, so $50/night including tax was pretty good.
We checked in around 8 pm and the woman in the office was very friendly. She explained the phone system & had us fill out paperwork before giving us our keys and showing us where the vending & laundry was. We had room 130, toward the end of the building on the side not facing I-40. It was very quiet, especially for being so close to a major interstate.
The room itself was well taken care of. The mattress was a little firm, but obviously not as old as the hotel (it's 10 years old). The linens were in good shape. The standard studio comes with a queen bed, an armchair, a dresser w/a TV on top that can swivel, a small dining table, kitchenette with two burners, refrigerator & microwave as well as a small bathroom. Everything was in good shape & in working order. Like most ESAs, the kitchen was fully stocked to serve a meal for two people, though we never used anything but the fridge.
Cedar Bluff is a nice area; there are a ton of hotels in the area, and most looked very well taken care of. There are several restaurants along the same road as the ESA and a small shopping center down the street. ESA shares a driveway with three Marriott properties (a Courtyard, a TownePlace Suites & a Residence Inn), so it seems like a nice, safe area.
For a short visit, it was a great deal and I wouldn't hesitate to go back. If I was going to have to spend a long visit there (14 days or more, like many ESA guests), I would probably stay at another extended stay facility to have extra room. It's a fairly small space, and with only one arm chair, it would feel cramped if you had more than one person in it often. I would try a TownePlace Suites if you'd want to entertain a lot or feel claustrophobic easily.
