My family’s experience at the newly renovated Extended Stay has been nothing like Frank E.’s. Within the span of a few weeks, this hotel transformed before our eyes, with new furniture and a color-coordinated paint scheme, drapes, bedding, and carpet; faux wood kitchen/bathroom floors; and updated fixtures.
Our room is a studio apartment furnished with a recliner, a cushy brand-new Queen-size bed, matching 4-drawer dresser, night stand, and table and desk with chairs. The large flat-screen TV gets excellent reception on the local broadcast channels as well cable channels such as USA, TNT, TBS, Oxygen, Discovery, ESPN and ESPN-2, and premium channels Showtime and Showtime Too. The quiet, heating/cooling unit adequately controls the room’s climate and two screened windows provide natural lighting and air. The living/sleeping area features three lights and four separate electrical outlets.
The kitchen features an overhead light fixture as well as one in the stove hood. Appliances include a full-size refrigerator-freezer, a two-burner electric stove (with an exhaust fan), a microwave, and a small coffeemaker. We added our own slow-cooker and a small toaster oven and we use the free in-room wi-fi to look up tasty recipes. The cupboards are stocked with a saucepan, a frying pan, and dishes and cutlery for two people. A can opener, a pancake turner, and a dish towel and dishcloth are also included. We had no problem getting an extra place setting for our family. Something new: A Culligan water filter for the faucet!
Standard hotel supplies such as face/bath soap, tissues, toilet paper, and shampoo are included; if you forget your hair dryer, you can get a loaner at the front desk. The laundry room also includes a vending machine for drinks, snacks, and toiletries. And, of course, the room rate includes routine maid service with clean bedding, linens, and kitchen towels.
The bathroom has a large mirror above the sink area and an under-sink shelf. The adjustable shower head, good water pressure and temperature, bowed curtain rod, and exhaust fan/light help to ensure a satisfying bath or shower.
The hotel is conveniently located near (but not in hearing range of) the 57 and 210 freeways and within walking distance of public transit, a convenience store, coffee shops, several fast food joints, restaurants, and grocery stores. A gas station and a car wash are also nearby.
All in all, we’ve been happy at Extended Stay and would recommend it to friends.
