Extended Stay America Review-My Experience
I usually reached the hotel while moving from one city to another at pretty late hours.
The desk staff were very helpful with the whole process and even gave me a coffee machine for my room when I requested it (late at around 1am!! Needed my cup of caffeine to relax after a long journey).
The utensils provided are sufficient enough to cook any kind of food.
The kitchen had Stovetop, full-size refrigerator, microwave. You may have to ask for a coffee maker if you love your caffeine.
The beds are comfortable, sheets are clean. Getting a fresh sheet and towels daily gives good confidence on the hygiene part, you may have to make your bed though.
Washrooms are clean, with enough supply of soap, cream, etc. You can ask for fresh towels, more toiletries anytime you need them!
Morning breakfast is not the best but considering the cost of my stay & availability of kitchen, I thought it was ok.
You can pick up granola bars, oats, hot coffee, tea, hot chocolates from the breakfast counter till 8 or 9am in the morning.
Tv had enough channels to keep my 10year old kid entertained (that’s a tough one!!)
Thank You Extended Stay America, Atlanta
This incident happened during my travel to Atlanta from Memphis with my family.
I booked a hotel with Priceline around 4-5 hours in advance (was checking out the last-minute deal they offered 😁).
I had done an advance booking in Hilton for the next day, this day I just kept for adventure!
I got a confirmation that the room has been booked at Extended Stay America.
Since I have been using Priceline and have stayed in Extended stay many times, I did not bother calling up Extended stay to re-confirm.
If you have been following my blog, you may know that I like to use public transport instead of renting a car while visiting a new city.
Do read Atlanta without car to read my experience.
So we took a bus and reached the Extended stay around 9pm.
I showed the booking details at the reception and to my surprise and shock, she said they had no room available!!
Here I was, standing at the lobby of Extended stay America, with my wife and 10-year-old kid in the middle of the night with no room!!
The adventure was turning into a misadventure!!
I immediately called Priceline customer care but could not reach an agent as I was in the queue, for more than 30 min…
While my wife was on phone, waiting for customer care to respond, I tried booking a different hotel but all were full (It was valentine week Saturday)
I had no clue, what to do. I reached out to many of my friends to check if they had any contact in Atlanta, but no use.
After around an hour (it seemed forever to me), the lady at reception approached me and said she may be able to give me a room but its bathroom door had no lock.
Considering the situation I was in, I would have accepted a room with no bathroom door at all!! I immediately agreed and moved into the room.
I could not have thanked more to the lady at reception and my trust in Extended Stay America became even stronger.
