Concern grows at check-in when you are asked to pay a USD 100 deposit 'in case you damage the room.' There is a warning about ongoing renovations. The room was absolutely disgusting...only partially cleaned, with bags of soiled towels and garbage lurking in corners, cupboards, and on the doorstep...thick greasy dust lining the cupboards....dirty and cracked tiles in the shower...and...

This is not a very good property!! Rooms are aged, smell funny, paint peeling, bathrooms a mess and overall beat up. Bed was marginal at best. Patrons next door decided to have a 15 cuss out conversation outside my room. I had to politely ask them to move on. Hotel in a suspect area. Front desk personnel was very helpful...

I made reservations prior to arriving at the hotel. I had difficulty locating the hotel and called for directions. The clerk told me there was no availability and I needed to book elsewhere. I told her the reservation had already been made. She stated it wasn't showing in the computer. I decided to continue looking for the hotel and straighten...

The rooms are dirty and upon check-in they have to search for rooms that should be already clean. The end result is still getting a dirty room. Make sure you have your cleaning supplies with you or stop at the store and purchase bleach prior to arriving.

The lady at the desk refused to give us a room, said they were completely full, and told us to call Priceline's help number for a new room elsewhere. She had no explanation for not...

So my cousin and I had an unexpected situation and needed stay at a hotel. So we chose Extended Stay America which is a mile from her house. The room stunk and smelled like bad smoke,but I thought it could've been taken care of with Lysol or air freshener. I changed clothes and went to work. Well when I arrived...

“As to see the room first, to assess its state of disrepair and whether or not it has been cleaned.”
  • Bag of trash and soiled towels greets me on arrival in my room.
  • Most buttons missing from the telephone...bizarre!
  • Faucet missing components, creating a well of slime.
  • Flithy cracked tiles in the shower.
