Stayed in room 176. Compared with other Extended Stay locations my room was relatively modern looking and spacious. It had a flat screen TV with the usual basic channels plus Showtime. Microwave, fridge, etc all clean and in working order. The iron worked VERY well which was a plus! Large closet to hang my suits including sturdy wooden hangers and a chest for stowing other valuables. The exterior looked a bit rundown especially the flaking paint on the stairway but the interior was very pleasant.
The breakfast was the usual Extended Stay deal of coffee and take away items such as packaged muffins and granola bars. It doesn't cost any extra so it's a nice extra for the price if not an entirely satisfying first meal of the day. On the downside, there is no gym or fitness room. However, there is a Gold's Gym atop the hill that overlooks the hotel and they have a link-up with Extended stay whereby you can purchase $5 temp memberships from the hotel front office to gain access to the gym. So that's a good, cheap option if you want to work out.
I must also add that the staff were very pleasant and friendly. When I arrived I wasn't in the best of moods after a rough day and many hours of traveling. Nevertheless, I was warmly welcomed by the girl at reception whose own cheerful disposition soon improved my own mood. All in all I would say it's a decent option for business travelers.
