The room had a mr⁵The shower curtain was flithy and had mold on it. The bottom of the toilet was dirty. The phone in the room was filthy with old ashes on it and it wasnt able to be used. Also, there were ashes all over the AC unit. I didnt even stay the night, checked out early. I really would like a refund because I wont back.

Disgusting , dirty, nasty, gross, horrible. Worst, filthy,

Conveniently located and worked well for my needs.

Deplorable place. Looks like some of the guests are on government subsidies as they show up with luggage in trash bags and dirty attires. No services or amenities as advertised; no room service. The list is very long. Do yourself a favor and do not check-in in hell.

Good location. Good Price. No breakfast. Carpet are smelling. No amenities.

They overbooked our room and made us go to Ivy Creek Blvd which was down the road. Wanted a non smoking room that smelled just like cigarettes. It was still dirty also other guest were blasting music outside.

Very dirty I stay there four days I stay there no any room cleaning no Bath room clean no soap all outside Very dirty I am not a recommend to anyone to go to that hotel Very bad dirty hotel

This hotel was pretty great. The staff was amazing.

I checked in around 10pm and just wanted to shower and get to bed as I had to get up by 5am. I went in to the room and it literally looked like someone was already staying there. The soap was open on the sink with the wrapper next to it. Bed was not made. No bath towels. And the toilet tank top was off and sitting g in the toilet like someone was working in it. I went back to the lobby and was given another room and that room, although a little cleaner, also did not have bath towels. I just showered and used one of my shirts to dry off. I have stayed in this chain several times in the past and had a great experience but this place is ridiculous.

Just needs to fix shower other than that it was an good stay

The lobby was closed when I arrived but I was lucky the front desk guy was outside when I pulled up. I was late but there should always be an attended front desk at anytime of day in my opinion. The room stinks and there were no pillows on the bed. Only a pillow in the closet with no pillowcase on it.

All I will say is I have reported this hotel and was very dissatisfied. I hope that no one ever goes there. Truthfully I want my money back and for that hotel to be demolished and rebuilded. Just a waste of building with waste in it.... I travel so this was by far the first and last time I will stay in an extended stay!!!!!!!!

Bugs, no towels no wash cloths, attitude from staff. Towing cars, no body is ever in the office, put sign on the door that said they would be back in 20mins which ended up being over an hour. Looked around and the hotel staff was outside talking and smoking

Although their is a majority of young temporary placed occupants the environment is welcoming downhome and peaceful.

Don't stay here. Room reeked of smoke and pot - after leaving, my clothes still smelled heavily. Room dirty -- sticky stuff on top of the dresser and table No towels on check in, just one wash cloth Only given 5 thin wire hangers and then told that was the limit when I asked for more Security lock was missing one of two screws, barely hanging on. Cords hanging from ceiling where I think maybe the smoke detector used to be. Kitchen sink leaked straight out the bottom in to the cabinet below. This may have gotten repaired during my visit, but was another sign of the neglect. To check in, had to walk through cloud of smoke from three people smoking in front of the door -- including the person working check in. On to pros side: Some other employees were nice. The bed was reasonably comfortable -- it may have even been new.

Checking in and out was easy but the rooms were a mess. Lots of broken parts and no thought for visitor comfort. Just not the spot for a four night visit with grandchildren Pulled out after two nights.

Everything was as expected. Very clean, basic place to stay. Staff was courteous and helpful. Room amenties are fairly basic but quite sufficient. Overall, good value.
