Spacious enough, clean nice place to stay. Gym only has one treadmill, one bike and one stair stepper. But no free weights, just a couple of machines. It was never crowded though so it was fine. We were on the 2nd floor and people on top of us were really loud. Maybe shoot for a top floor. Beds were super...

This place was exceptionally clean. The layout was such that there was a divider wall between the beds and sitting room. It offered a lounge chair, sofa, and another TV. There was also an island for computer work and sitting to eat. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful.

The hotel was spotless! Tongela, who checked us in was a delight! Very courteous! Our room was immaculate. It was nice that there was a continental breakfast--the other extended stay places didn't offer that. The breakfast area was kept clean and well-stocked.

The room was designed for a longer stay than overnight, coming equipped with a kitchen, refrigerator/freezer, and small dining area. That means there was no ice bucket, so we had to rely on the...
