The hospitality shown by the Extended Stay America Staffs is really good. Especially, I need to thank one Staff Mrs. Ruby for showing such a nice hospitality and getting things sorted quickly. She is very... More

Nice place; clean room & comfortable bed. However, rooms are quite a bit smaller than other Extended Stay Americas. The fridge & freezers are also smaller than at other ESA. Front desk staff very friendly and responsive to needs.

But a kind man helped deliver all the things. Whew. I was also glad... More

It is ideally located right in the middle with lot of corporate offices around and some restaurants close by. Rooms are good (except the corner ones) and have all basic amenities required for a business travel. Staff is helpful.

They have the worst customer service of any hotel I've stayed at, the rooms are run-down and very cheaply setup, while the room repairs look like a 5 year old child did them. The front desk doesn't answer the phone in the early morning hours and the court which the rooms surround is often loud in the evening with people... More

It started when my room was given.away. the room got was fine. If they need anything it's got to get better cable and more channels. I thought it was pricey for a maybe 3 star. I liked youhe little kitchen. Served the propose. The wi-fi is really slow, id upgrade for 3.50 a day if your doing photos or streaming.

If you are a business traveler (like I was when I stayed at this Extended Stay America property last week), I highly recommend that you not stay here. I did not feel safe walking around the property at night with very scary people now nearly every external hallway. The property is poorly maintained, both inside and out. The cabinets are... More
