Extended Stay America - Montgomery - Eastern Blvd.
Ranked #50 of 72 Hotels in Montgomery
Reviewed 30 July 2014

As you are aware, in Montgomery, Alabama that you have two hotels approximately a mile apart from each other I arrived at the one whereas my reservation was at the other one. The clerk was coarse “stating you don’t have a reservation here it must be the other one” and dismissed me and asked other customs “can I help you”? The clerk left me with no direction, so I asked the person in the parking lot for the location and direction to the Extended Stay America Hotel. Upon arriving, the clerk was very professional. The only available room was on the third floor. I am a disabled veteran, and I desired the first floor. She called the other property which stated that they will have a first-floor room if I could wait for a couple of hours. In a couple of hours, I checked in requesting kitchen supplies. The clerk said that she would get it to me later. I entered the room and pulled the cover back on the bed so I could relax because I had been traveling since 4 a.m. and arrived in Montgomery around 8 a.m. and finally get in the room by noon. I fell asleep upon waking up I saw cockroaches running around on the floor. I immediately called the front desk to make them aware of the problem. The clerk began to argue stating “we don’t have roaches” I said, “dam if you don’t." She stated I would call maintenance. I went to the bathroom and turned on the light the exhaust fan did not work and look at the shower where it appear to be mold around the top edge of the shower under the water sparker. Later I tried to use the iron it did not hold water I went to the front office to trade it in and the iron I received did not hold water. I asked for a stopper for the kitchen sink. The clerk said, “we don’t issue those." I laid in the bed that night in the dark and look at the door, light from the outside protruded in around the door letting heat in and air out.
I have stayed in many hotels in my lifetime and this experience was the worst ever.

We arrived after 11 pm. Check-in took longer than expected because the front desk worker had trouble finding our reservation. We finally got it sorted out and took our sleeping infant son up to our second floor room. We were really eager to get to bed because we were only staying for about five hours and needed to sleep. However, our room key wasn't working so we had to go back down and get it reset. My husband had gotten us a room with one bed (he said), so while we were down there, I asked the front desk worker if we could switch to a room with two doubles since I thought that would be a better fit for us. She said no, not without an extra fee. We didn't want to pay the extra fee so we passed on that.

We took our son upstairs for a second time (he was awake by now), but once again the room key did not work. I was starting to get frustrated as I felt our night's sleep getting shorter by the minute. Once again, we all went downstairs to get the room key reset. While we were down there, I asked the front desk worker if we could have a free upgrade to a room with double beds since we'd had to come down twice now and we hadn't even gotten in the room yet. She flatly said no, she wasn't authorized to do that. I asked her who was authorized and she said no one, she was the only one here. I asked if there was a manager and she said no, not until the morning. I asked if there was someone I could call and she said I could call the 1-800 number.

It might seem that I was hung up on a small detail, but what really bothered me is that there was no one present who was empowered to make customer service decisions. This is NO way to run a business. I can overlook a lot of unpleasant details in the name of customer service. I go out of my way to patronize businesses like Costco and Lands' End, both of which prioritize customer satisfaction. I was not peeved because I didn't like our bed set-up, but because the employee was entirely disinterested in making me a satisfied customer, particularly after we had gotten off to a bad start with the slow check in and having to return our room key twice.

As it turned out, after refusing to switch us to a double room at my request we did end up in one, although I don't know if it was by accident or if the sour employee was extending an olive branch. The room we finally got into was not the one we were originally assigned. So we have our double beds, great! The room itself left MUCH to be desired.

Every surface in the room appeared to be worn, dirty, and stained. The sink wouldn't drain so there was stagnant coffee or brown water pooled in the drain. The counter was either stained or dirty, as was the dish towel. The fridge looked like it was salvaged from Good Will. There were even stains on my pillow (ughhh). The air conditioner wheezed ineffectively and I was pretty worried, but eventually we cooled off a little. My husband woke at 4:30 so that we could get back on the road and took a shower with no soap or shampoo. If we had known there wouldn't be any, we would have gotten our own out of the car, but we were in a hurry so we just hit the road after a water-only shower.

We were in the middle of a long drive and this hotel stop was supposed to make our trip more comfortable, but instead it made us less comfortable. I am not in a hurry to repeat this experience, and even though I have had a better stay at another ESA in the past, I will be avoiding ALL Extended Stay America locations from here on out.

I don't have much to say in this review. This hotel was really exactly what you would expect or maybe a little more for the money. I needed somewhere relatively cheap to stay and it fit the bill. Would I recommend it? No. Would I stay again? Only if my finances required it. But you definitely can make it work. It was overall clean after THREE room changes. I never received the breakfast offered as the low class level of clients that they have coming through required them to shut it down early EVERYDAY. Its understaffed and needs security. The front desk help did the best they could with what they were given to work with. Kekea and LaConstance were 5 star employees in a 2,star situation. On the bright side there's a Baumhower's next door if you want to get away for a minute.My recommendation? There is another EXTENDED STAY location for the same price just a couple of miles down the road that is a little nicer and closer to the interstate. If its in your power, STAY THERE!!

My daughter and I arrived after 11 p. m. We had an early engagement the next day so I decided to stay. The kitchen and bathroom extremely dirty. Fridge rusty and towel dingy. I went to Walmart to purchase cleaning supplies and towels. Needless to say I will never stay at this Hotel again. Nor will I recommend it to anyone. I hope management is reading these reviews because this is terrible. I am happy to say I did not see any roaches!

The staff did not provide the information to received calls to the room. The room has roaches and the bathroom did to any soap in the room. The fridge on the outside need to clean with Clorox. My room had a weed smell when I arrived. Next time I will stay at another location with better services. The hotel phone systems needs to be repaired very badly. I tried to dial a local number. I was charged for long distance call. I had to include the area code in order to make a local call.

Did not feel safe since had two cases that individuals trying to sell you electronics/jewerly/.... in the hotel parking lot.

Room Tip: Do not stay at room 213 if you are sesitive to noise, the ceiling boards screech as somebody walking...
