We arrived at 10:30 pm after an 11 hour drive from NY, expecting to check in to a room reserved a month earlier through Priceline. The lady at the desk refused to give us a room, said they were completely full, and told us to call Priceline's help number for a new room elsewhere. She had no explanation for not... More

So my cousin and I had an unexpected situation and needed stay at a hotel. So we chose Extended Stay America which is a mile from her house. The room stunk and smelled like bad smoke,but I thought it could've been taken care of with Lysol or air freshener. I changed clothes and went to work. Well when I arrived... More

I would never use this company again, the room was not available after we made the reservation and had driven 23 hours to get here. We have 3 kids and it was 11:30 at night and had to wait for 40 minutes for the cleaning girl to refresh the room. Not good

I stayed here a month for work. Room was beaten up, discolored roof, smelly sheets, unvaccumed carpet, huge bully roaches that dont scurry off but approach you defiantly, untinted windows so have to keep windows closed so no one can see you. Staff very slow to respond. Would not stay here again.

The Extended Stay America on Ivy Creek Blvd in Durham, NC, was clean and comfortable. Patrons need to remember to ask for any needed kitchen utensils. The staff was very friendly and communicated their desire to accommodate.

Floor was stained and NASTY. Front desk personnel was very friendly and helpful. Location was great with many shops nearby. Some hotel guests continued t hound us for money. Probably would not stay here again because didn't feel safe.

Upon arrival the hotel was alright. It is very basic. The bathrooms dont have hairdryers. Very quiet. Only reason it gets 1 star is for towels. 3 days in a row they were out of towels. I guess housekeeping only comes once a week, so they dont gather any. Dont throw your towels on the floor. The carpet is filthy,... More

I have not worked in over a year and I was going for an interview in Raleigh but I have to watch every penny. I booked on Priceline and therefore it was paid in advance. I am old school and rely on maps. It was dark before I arrived at the motel. I called the front desk to get directions.... More

The lobby is poorly marked. As if they don't want you to find it. There is a bed in the lobby. Is this a display or where the employee sleeps? Disconcerting and unnecessary regardless. Or poorly planned at the very least. You need a gorilla grip to open the door to the room. The toilet is already backed up. Here's... More
