There was a homeless camp in the parking lot and we were up all night watching our truck and trailer. There was dog pee and poop in both stairwells as well as a dirty band aid that was there for the entire four days we were there. Lots of garbage outside including an old jet ski! There weren’t any breakfast snacks. When we checked in our bathroom had pubic hair all over the bath tub. The beds were absolutely horrible.

Hotel's Favorite
I spent 17 months at this hotel and truly appreciated the location, the staff and the other residents. The location is great - modern shopping centers with every retailer you can think of are a couple blocks away. The beaches are about a 20 minute drive. The mountains about 1.5 hour drive. Lake Forest is a relatively small city and is quiet for the most part. There are so many parks in the area - we made it to about 5 or 6 of them, however there were many more that we didn't get the opportunity visit. About the staff... Jay is the manager and was there the entire 17 months. Terry Young, housekeeping, became like family to us. She was amazing. I wrote her a great reference letter. Muhammad and Alex are very special - they work the front desk. There are residents at the hotel that have been there for a long time (like us). We also became like family. It's not the rooms that make this hotel special. It's the people that live and work there.

Convenient location, helpful staff, adequate amenities. Property is older, in need of renovations, but fairly clean. Kitchenette was nice, but when advertised available items were requested (coffee maker, dishes, cookware, etc.), front desk informed us they were nearly booked up, and so not all items were available, and we should check for them tomorrow. The hotel should have supplies available for all rooms. Bath towels were extremely thin, and often stained. Bed was not comfortable, and on wheels that don't lock, so that it moved away from the wall if you tried to sit up with your back to the wall watching TV. Was in the area on business for a month. Found a better hotel nearby for the same rate.

Thank you for choosing to stay with us. We're glad our location was ideal for you and that you were pleased with the service provided by our associates. However, we're sorry for the inconvenience you experienced due to the shortage of in-room amenities. We are reviewing this situation with our staff to ensure these items are always well stocked. Also, know our front desk is available to address issues such as this, and we would have been happy to provide you with another room upon request. We hope you will give us a second chance to deliver the type of experience you should always expect from our hotel. Sincerely, Hotel Management

The polite service I have received from all staff has been 5 stars across the board. From Jay, Alex & Jennifer at the front desk to the courteous house keeper Mrs T & the ground maintenance Salvador. I would highly recommend staying at Extended Stay America as they treat everyone like family. 3DogDave
