Positive Reviews

Good for longer stays

The hotel is great for those who need an extended stay. The units are more like a home than a motel room and the spacious rooms can accommodate many needs, from work to relaxation. The full kitchens also provide convenience and added value.

Prices are a great value

The prices here are a great value and are much cheaper than a standard hotel stay. There are also cheaper rates offered for longer stays. The added amenity of an onsite pool adds to that value in the Florida heat.

Convenience in location

The location has a lot of convenience for those on extended trips. The onsite laundry is a real bonus as well. This hotel is a close drive to the university campus and is close to many shops and restaurants. For those who want a full shopping experience, St. Johns Town Center is very popular in the area and has many name-brand stores.

Negative Reviews

The cleaning is questionable

The units and property have a lot of cleanliness issues. The units are rarely thoroughly cleaned and the spot cleaning doesn't provide a standard that is comfortable. The common areas are also dirty and trashy.

There are bigger issues

With the cleanliness aside, the units have larger problems to deal with. Many issues in the units are not fixed on a regular basis and the property feels abandoned. There are stains on carpet, cabinets broken and literally rotting away, and appliances that don't work at all.

Not the usual standard

This hotel is not up to the usual Extended Stay America standard. The utensils, dishes, pots, and pans are not kept in the units, but have to be checked out and reserved. Also, the stated eight-night full housekeeping service doesn't always occur.
