I hesitated reserving a room at Extended Stay due to the bad reviews on Trip Advisor. However, we were in the area visiting relatives in Wauwatosa and needed somewhere to stay for a week. We didn't want to spend a small fortune, and we found the price at Extended Stay to be reasonable (a discount is applied if you stay for a week). We knew we'd only be there to sleep at night, but as a precaution we asked to view a room before we made our reservation. Zach took care of us, and he was very professional and friendly. I was pleasantly surprised at how nice the room was. It looked as though it had been recently renovated. We had no problems during the week we stayed there. The room was clean and we found the kitchen facilities to be an added bonus. Our bed was comfortable, the room spacious and we had no problem with noise. We even had two of our grandchildren come stay with us for two nights at no extra charge. It is true that the room is only cleaned once a week, but we have no problem doing a little cleaning ourselves. When we needed fresh towels, we took the used ones to the front desk and they were replaced with clean towels. You have to wash your own dishes and make your own bed. No big deal! The "Grab and Go Breakfast" is nothing special, just instant oatmeal, granola bars, packaged muffins, coffee, tea, hot chocolate. Since we had a fully equipped small kitchen in our room, we were able to make our own breakfasts and any other meals. There also is a laundry facility on site. The lobby and hallways are drab, and could use updating, but they are clean. We found the staff to be helpful. There are plenty of restaurants either on North Avenue or Hwy. 100 and you have easy access to the freeway. The hotel is set back off of North Avenue behind a Holiday Inn and Denny's, but is easy to spot as there is a sign right on North Avenue. This was not the most luxurious hotel we've ever stayed at, but the price was reasonable, it was clean, and the service was good.
