I have stayed at this location before. This trip, however, the hotel common areas were always slightly dirty. The towels in my room were a bit smelly. Someone threw Doritos all down the hall and they stayed for two days. Overall the place seemed shabby.

Kelly at the desk was very friendly and efficient during my stay. I was impressed with her abilities and professionalism. The rooms were super clean. But mainly I would return just because of the excellent customer service. Kudos to Kelly and management for running such a great hotel!

The young lady who checked us in was less than welcoming. The roomed reeked of curry and opening the window did not help. The toilet was filthy and there was pee splatter and pubic hairs on the seat and rim. So gross!

Rooms are clean, kitchen is not too clean you can smell someone else food being cooked into your vent. Room service is not too good they don't clean bathrooms really well I guess just put in fresh towels. Also lack a basic necessities in their breakfast like milk and cereals. Sleep was good.

Unfortunately, for nearly a week their elevator has been out of service - and she's on the third floor. Again - she's disabled and unable to navigate...

Clean room, friendly service, great price!! General Manager, Diana, is the best! Near mall area, lots of restaurants and shopping. Grab and Go Breakfast has enough to get a quick start. Love that Extended Stay Partners with American Cancer Society and donates a $1 for each room sold!
