When visiting Dublin, Extended Stay America - Columbus - Sawmill Rd. is a great choice to consider. Free perks include continental breakfast, WiFi, and self parking. Apartments feature kitchens and flat-screen TVs.
Pros: The staff was very friendly. Cons: While the room appeared to be cleaned nicely by the staff, the carpet was gross, ground in dirt and oil/grease stains everywhere, paint was peeling, bed rock hard and pillows were very old. It was disgusting. Walls were thin, parking area was dark.
Turns out I paid more than the current price of the room booking Priceline via Kayak. I knew the name of the hotel before I booked. When I arrived I asked the price and it was less than what I paid. The clerk said they even raised rates that evening based on occupancy increase from earlier that day.
I had booked a couple of days in advance. The clerk said Priceline must not have their Fall rates and probably quoted the Summer rates. Very dissatisfied with the entire experience. I don't know that I will use Priceline again, and I won't ever stay at this chain again.
Using Priceline is supposed to offer lower rates, but it did not in this case.
