When you are simply traveling for pleasure, most of the time, a regular hotel where you can stay a few days at a time will work out just fine. However, there are some situations in which you will need to stay away from home for a lot longer than just a few days. For example, if you have to temporarily relocate to a new city for work for a few weeks or if you have a relative who is not in good health and you need to stay close while they are being treated, you may need an extended stay hotel. Take a look at some of the things you should expect to be different when you stay at an extended stay hotel compared to traditional short-term lodging:
Expect the rates to be somewhat lower than what you would typically pay.
Even though most travelers are perfectly willing to pay hotel rates on vacation, when the stay is going beyond just a few days or weeks, it is not financially feasible to pay the same rates. Many extended stay hotels offer lower rates because of this. Additionally, you can expect to have the option to pay for a room on a longer basis. For example, you may be able to rent a room for a week or even a month at a time, which can also help you save money on the overall costs of the stay.
Expect access to certain amenities that you may not otherwise need.
Extended stay hotels are set up with the long-stay traveler in mind, so they often have on-site amenities that you would expect to find in places like apartment complexes. You will probably have access to a laundry room so you can do your laundry or even fitness centers on site so you can still workout while you are away from home.
Expect better-equipped accommodations.
There are some things that you can do without when you are on a simple short-term vacation and have to stay in a hotel. For example, not having a full-sized fridge or a stove to cook on is not that big of a deal because you will probably eat out for the most part anyway. However, when you are staying in a hotel for longer, these usually unnecessary things become needed. Because of this, a lot of extended stay hotel rooms have features like full-service kitchenettes or an actual living room that is separate from the sleeping area.Share

My name is Clara Banksman and this is a blog that I've written about hotels and lodging. In this blog you'll learn about the different kinds of lodging accommodations that are available and the benefits of each one. In addition to hotels, you'll read about staying in a motel, a hostel and a bed and breakfast. You can also learn about spending time at a vacation rental, a resort and a lodge. I do a lot of traveling and while I'm away from home, I like the experience of staying in different kinds of accommodations. Spending the night at various places also makes the trip more exciting for me. I hope that after you read my blog it will inspire you to book a stay at a place that you've never been before.
