I'm a frequent visitor to the Woodlands and have logged many nights in hotels. I wrote a review for Super 8 which is my most common destination. However, on trips where I was staying weeks, I would go to the Extended Stay.
What I liked was the kitchen. It was nice to have the kitchen utencils (when they were actually there) and the ability to heat food up. My wife was there a few times and cooked a few meals for us when we were tired of restaurants.
What I dislike is the staff. There used to be a manager there that was terrible. Nothing got done, things didn't work, rooms were missing items, and regardless of your complaint, you were ignored. Whether that has changed or not is unknown.
I also dislike the internet. THEY CHARGE for internet access. Shame on you ESA.
Walls are thin and you hear everything from room to room. ESA is filled with people staying semi-long time and you often have people outside their rooms, or on the balconies smoking and talking ... often into the night.
In comparison, the rooms are small but cozy and the television worked. I can't say the same for the remote controls - I can't tell how many times I have had to complain about not being able to change channels.
If you need a hotel room for multiple nights or weeks, and you can tolerate a few of the aggravations, then ESA is the place to go ... full kitchen, large bathroom, nice refrigerator and microwave.
