I was put off by all of the other bad reviews of this location. But I am so glad that I am staying here. There is more than one extended stay in the vicinity and I assume that the bad reviews are for the other hotel because this hotel is the cleanest extended stay that I have ever seen. There are no bed bugs in this hotel or no bugs of any sort. The bed has a thick comfortable pillow top mattress with a brand new comforter. The couch in the room has no stains whatsoever and is clean enough to sleep on. I can tell that whoever cleaned this room before I arrived went the extra mile. I attached photos to show you that the interior and the exterior are both exceptionally clean. I wanted to set the record straight for anyone who may be put off by all the other poor reviews of this hotel. If you can interpret the reviews you'll notice that all of the bad ones start off by saying, "I arrived really late at night and was very tired..." Well, if you arrive late at night then you should expect to get what's left over, and if you are tired and also rude to the staff then you might get the same treatment. Also, the whole premise of the extended stay franchise is that you only get maid service once a week unless you request service from the front desk. If you need extra towels then you can go to the front desk and ask for more. How hard is that??
From the moment I entered the parking lot I was greeted with a warm and welcoming environment and the person at the front desk was very accommodating. When I came into the room, I performed my initial "Hidden Stank" inspection. Step one, Check the walls lampshades, curtains and bed sheets for blood. The result---PASS! Step two, pull back the sheets and look for insects, hairs and sundry other offending agents. The result---PASS! Step three, flush toilet to see if it backs up and run water in bath tub to check for blockages. The result---Pass! Step three observe overall cleanliness of carpet couch and kitchenette (if equipped) and make note of any unidentified stains or evidence of mold. The result---PASS! If I am in a hotel which fails in one or more of these areas, I request another room or leave and choose another hotel. This hotel passed my inspection. And to show how serious I am, normally, I avoid close contact with the floors of many hotel rooms, but with this place I will be doing pushups and situps with reckless abandon with no fear of any "stank" attaching to me. If I ever stay in the area again I will make sure I stay at this location. I also recommend this hotel to you if you are going to be in the area anytime soon. Make sure you have the address of the correct hotel. I would recommend this hotel to everyone. It is 1170 Kinley road, Irmo, SC 29063.
The room I am staying in is 332 and it is on the south side and is extremely clean.
