Needed a room quickly last night
$43 listed price - $54.70 with taxes and Hotwire fees.
The 2.5* listing on Hotwire only listed Free Parking as an amenity on the mobile site, but the 90% Hotwire recommended rating and my deep-deep desire to shower and sleep after 40 hours of international flying prompted me to pull-the-trigger. I was disheartened to get the Extended Stay America, but this is nothing like the dump of the same name I stayed at in Rockford 6-8 years ago:
Hotwire shows Extended Stay America - Rockford - State Street, 747 N. Bell School Road, Rockford, IL 61107 with: Free parkingFree breakfastFree InternetPet friendlyFitness centerSelf-service laundryInternet accessWhile basic, it was clean and fairly quiet room. Towels were fairly thin, but not surprising for a weekly-type of place (or one for <$50). TV is a modern LCD, but all the in-building modulators are analog - so nothing is in the correct aspect ratio. CNN, CNN Headline, Fox News, 2-3 ESPNs, and 3 Showtime channels. Couch was comfortable. Bed was queen, comfortable but not luxurious. This deserves a 2.5 star rating - and is just fine for a place to shower and get a night's sleep.
