Booked this room last minute on a long road trip. Took forever to find the building because the name on the sign in their parking lot didn't match the name on Hotels.com. The instant we pulled up we noticed the ply wood covering at least one window in every room but we went in anyway. The front desk attendant was...

After a 24 hour drive and barely getting any sleep driving up from the West Coast we stumbled upon the Extend a Suites, the lady at the desk was very nice and helpful, it was around 12 am. She told me that we needed to look at the room because they did not offer refunds. The first room I looked...

When I arrived at the hotel, there was no soap in the room and a dead bug on the floor. The television was even on. It would seem that the room was not cleaned from the last guest. I arrived late and just went to sleep. The next day I could not shower. The bathtub filled with water, never drained,...

I just have to say that the reviews that have been left are not all accurate. The manager Melinda has been on the phones to make this hotel a very nice living area.
