“Great potential but a few issues...”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2012

I expected perhaps a bit too much from a hotel with 'Deluxe' in the title (yes I know it isn't 5-star, but it was the basics that I was concerned about)

The parking is ample and free so if you are taking a car you'll have no problem. I had difficulty heaving my bags through the doors as they were not automatic and pull outward. After checking in I walked to my room and in the hallway I noticed the smell of fresh lemony pine which was excellent.

The first thing that hit me upon entering the room was the strong smell of damp eminating from the air conditioner. You'd rather the hallway and room smells to be the other way round I suspect. The room layout and size was very good indeed though so I was pleased with this. The ergonomic chair in particular was awesome!

The hotel has fantastic potential but there were a few small things that would have improved my stay... aside from the damp smell, the bath plughole was a tad 'used looking', the sink took ages to empty, the fridge door handle was broken, the microwave had a curry smell, my room door (118) was temperamental and probably worst was the ketchup smell coming from the sofa area (I didn't dare lift the cushions).

Most of these weren't very serious to me but its food for thought for you guys perhaps. Talking of food, sorry but I can't talk about the food as I didn't try their complimentary breakfast, too little time.

I would recommend this place to others, only if they can sort these issues out, the hotel is otherwise very good.

I recently received a copy of your review, and wanted to take a moment to respond. We take great pride in offering a clean, comfortable room at an affordable price, so I was happy to read your comments about your accommodations. However, I was disappointed to read the rest of your remarks. 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.

Everything was very clean and my stay was very pleasant. I've stayed at "5 star" hotels whose rooms and ammenties were not as nice as Extended Stay Deluxe. I defintely recommend this hotel.

I was pleasantly surprised by the quality of this hotel especially for the price. The front desk staff was very courtesy and friendly. Check-in was very quick and easy. The room was great and the kitchen was surprisingly updated with dishes, silverware, pots/pans, a stove, oven, and full-size fridge. The bed was super comfortable and there were extra pillows and blankets in the closet. The tv was large and it was an updated flat screen version that swivled around either to the bed or the couch area. Oh yeah, the room had a DVD player without any additional cost which was great for us because we brought movies to kick back and watch. We were very happy about that! The bathroom was large and very clean. The only problem we had was that there were no hangers in the closet so we had to go to Walmart and purchase some plastics ones. There is a very nice pool area that has a grilling area nearby but just know there is no hot tub ok. Although the hotel was pretty much filled to capacity it was surprisingly very quiet in the hallways and parking lot. I felt very safe. I will stay at this hotel again and we do recommend it especially since you get so much for the low price! You can't beat it.

I was in Jacksonville,Fl to see My daughter for the day,when the day got away from me,I thought I would get a room for the night and go home the next day.We drove around for an hour or so when we came up to a group of hotels in a courtyard,we drove around and saw the red roof inn ,we pulled in,but the parking lot was littered with trash,at that point I saw the Extended Stay,it looked clean.I had been running into rude people all day and thought that was what was to come in here,but the service was excellent and the price was right.The room was big and well set-up.From now on I will be looking for an Extended Stay where ever I need a room. Highly Recommended!
