This is not the wealthiest commercial section of Dayton, and there are plenty of colorful stories about this hotel, its clients, and the neighborhood.
Sometimes I stay at the best places; other times I stay very inexpensively. I stayed here because it was a walk of just a few *seconds* from where I needed to work for several days. For my needs, it was perfect.
I can't speak for everyone, but my sheets were NEW. The bathroom was clean. The carpet appeared clean. Under the bed had been vacuumed. The fridge and kitchen area were clean. The packaged terminal heat pump (you can also call it an "air-conditioner" and still be technically correct) functioned correctly.
The bedspread was soiled, but weather was hot anyhow and I had brought my own blanket. Housekeeping cheerfully replaced it. The phone had multiple issues, but management stayed with it until it worked correctly. You will pay for local and long-distance calls, but the rates are modest (.25 first minute, .10 subsequent) compared to many hotels. I did not try the Internet service. The mattress wasn't too bad.
The office hours were not the best for me, but the service was acceptable and the employees were never unkind. And there were plenty of employees around during the day prior to when the office opened.
If I needed a place like this again for several days or nights, I definitely would return. For the money saved, I'm happy to bring some of my own bedding and surface some issues with the staff.

Mr. Abel - We appreciate the review and are glad you enjoyed your stay. As an economy extended stay facility, we realize we are not for every traveler, nor every travel situation. However, when you need to stay in a place for an extended period of time - and need to stay on a budget - we believe we provide outstanding value.

Part of the way we keep rates low is by operating limited office hours (usually 11am-7pm, Monday thru Saturday). However, to make paying for rooms even easier for our guests, we have launched an online payment option on our website. This will allow us to maintain the low rates afforded by the limited hours, while making payment easier and more convenient for our guests.
Hope to see you again in the future.
