While trying to find a house to buy (relocating to NC from CA), I needed a place to "live" temporarily (no more than 30 days or so). I have stayed at the Extended Stay and it was just disgusting but it was cheap, so I said to myself - never again, I will just find something else and pay more. This place really is a hidden gem. It is certainly not the best and definitely not the worst!
-prices are in the middle of the lane - if you go cheaper and go to an extended stay, you will definitely see the difference so it's worth it to come here and pay a little bit more...if you have the budget to spend even more money than sure, go someplace else/better.
-hot breakfast included - I mean its not the best breakfast and I'm sure the eggs are powered but it helps when you are on a limited budget, this is one less meal you have to pay for throughout your day. There's also cereal, fruit, yogurt, oatmeal, bagels, etc...At the extended stay, I was lucky if there were any mini muffins left by the time I got up to the front of the hotel.
-I'm in the king suite which included a kitchen w/frig, stove, microwave, and dishes. There's also a sofa with a pull out bed and the king bed is in an actual bedroom.
-location, it's about 1 mile from shopping centers and the grocery stores... can't complain.
-The main building has a musty old run down smell. I'm grateful I'm in the suites building because it doesn't smell the same. It still smells "old" but not musty.
-Its supposed to be a non smoking building but someone is FOR SURE smoking! I'm not a smoker so I can smell it easily. But, I only really smell it in the evenings and it doesn't linger.
-there are a few sketchy type of folks I see here but they might be in transition just like I am so who am I to judge - overall I still feel safe and unbothered.
I'm glad I found this place, the price is reasonable for what you get. less
