I stayed at this hotel for 2 weeks in July. The rooms were large and plenty of space. During my 2 week stay, there was a double shooting which the police had the entire hotel roped off for most of the night/morning and newscrews all over the place. The police were there almost every other night dealing with the people hanging out back late at night with the constant flow of cars coming through or the ongoing domestic disputes that would happen. There's always shady people hanging out on the side near the door. My rental car was broken into. The General Manager's famous last words were, "I'll take care of that". Which, he never did.

This is a low budget hotel. So expect what comes with a low budget hotel. Crime and shady people.

Room Tip: Try and get a room with a view towards the back. That way, you don't have to hear the sirens when the local police pull in periodically.

"I recently received a copy of your review, and wanted to take a moment to respond. We take great pride in offering a clean, comfortable room at an affordable price, so I was happy to read your comments about your accommodations. However, I was disappointed to read the rest of your remarks. Please accept my most sincere apologies.

It is my pleasure to provide an explanation regarding the issue you described. Every part of our hotel, from the in-room features, to the design of our guest corridors, to the personalized voicemail, is an integral part to creating a ""home away from home"" experience for our guests. Since we recognize that a quiet, relaxing environment is critical to this goal, we have several systems to ensure that noise from within or outside the hotel doesn't interfere with your stay. Although rare, there are instances where a guest may hear noises from the surrounding area. Whenever we are informed of such disturbances, our standard operating procedure is to promptly identify the source of that disturbance and resolve it. I take full responsibility that we were unable to resolve this situation to your satisfaction during your stay.

It's not common that we get the sort of feedback you provided, and although it is discouraging to read, it will help us make our hotel even better in the future. Let me apologize again that your stay was not completely satisfying, and assure you that we will continue to listen to our guests in forums like this one or directly (please visit our website and click the Contact Us link at the bottom of the page). I hope we have addressed your concern satisfactorily, and that you would give us the pleasure of having you as a guest again at this hotel or any other Extended Stay Hotels(sm) brand location in the future."

I recently moved here from out of state for work & while I've been house hunting, found this hotel by accident. I was pleasantly surprised to find that not only did they offer clean spacious rooms at an outragiously affordable rate, but that the management & staff are so very personable & willing to do whatever they can to make our stay here a comfortable one. Moving so far away from home has been a very trying & stressful time, but staying in an establisnment where you are made to feel welcomed as a valued guest & not just as a room number, has made me a believer that there are still businesses who care about the customer. I would definitely recommend this hotel to family & friends...heck...I already have!! Huge thanks to the facility tech & building manager for, without hesitation, going above & beyond in helping me get my vehicle started when it unexpectedly gave out.

Our family has been here for an extended stay and we are pleased with the affordability and the on site laundry room is a bonus. The manager has a super friendly demeanor (and a good sense of humor), always willing to assist you with any issue that arises. The staff knows us well, and is efficient in accomodating us. The location is exceptional...around so many stores and shopping malls (esp. if you have transportation challenges) Bus stops are nearby as well. We have seen many upgrades since we've come and see changes almost daily. We will leave here very grateful for the privilege to have a place to stay during a transitional time.

Room Tip: Love being on the 1st floor, easy for entering and exit

Dilapidated exterior and parking lot. Scary people hanging outside the property. Horrible odors in the hallways and doorways. No lobby at all. Furniture cheap, worn-out and shabby. Bathroom filthy--fixtures rusted, floor stained.

Worst of all, BUGS. Bugs in the bathroom, bugs in the kitchen, bugs IN THE BED!!!!!!!!!

I wish I had slept in my car.
