Explanation of terminology: furnished apartments, corporate housing, extended stay in Longview WA near Kelso WA.

Introduction - Questions and Answers

Do I have to work for a corporation or large company to rent corporate housing?

Some vendors of extended stay (corporate housing) require you work for a large company that has an account with the vendor. They will not rent to an individual person, nor a person who works for a small company. This is especially common with high-end hotels that offer extended stay (aka corporate housing).

We don't have that ^ requirement. Private individuals and employees of small or large companies are welcome at Longview Corporate Housing. Any qualified applicant may rent from us. However, we do a reasonable level of screening people to determine which applicants are qualified.

What's the minimum stay for furnished housing, extended stay, corporate housing?

Hotels/motels offer 1+ day(s) stay (and charge expensive hotel tax). Extended stay (corporate housing) typically offers 30+ days (and does not hotel tax). Unfurnished apartments typically offer 11+ months stay. Furnished apartments can be 30+ day(s) like extended stay, or 11+ month(s) like unfurnished apts, depending on vendor. Lodging/housing for 12+ months stay is a lease (whether furnished or not). These categories of housing and length of stay are based on state laws for taxes and contract law.

At Longview Corporate Housing, we offer
1+ month(s) stay extended stay (corporate housing) aka fully furnished. That's typical for extended stay (corporate housing), though some vendors may require 2 or 3 months stay.

We also offer unfurnished apartments and condos for 11+ months stay.

Cost - How does cost compare?

Our extended stay units are much larger (1250 to 1700 sq ft) and better furnished than a hotel, and we cost much less than a hotel. Two weeks in a local hotel typically costs the same as 4 weeks in our extended stay accommodations.

Glossary - Explanation of Terms

Furnished Housing

Furnished housing includes all furniture and standard appliances. The term "furnished housing" is a bit vague though, since it doesn't describe the setting (hotel, apartment, condo, house) and it doesn't describe the length of stay, nor the level of furnishings. i.e. - just furniture; or also linens, cookware, dishware? How about kitchen and bathroom supplies? Furnished housing is a vague inclusive term that would include all categories of furnished housing (hotels, furnished apts, extended stay, etc).

Furnished Apartments

Furnished Apartments refers to an apartment that includes the furniture. It generally does not include other items (linens, cookware, dishware, kitchen and bathroom soap and other cleaning supplies, vacuum, iron, alarm clock, and more).

At Longview Corporate Housing, we don't offer furnished apartments. Instead we offer extended stay that includes everything, However, when we say we offer "furnished apartments" we really mean we offer extended stay apartments (and condos).

We offer fully furnished extended stay (corporate housing) in apts and condos for 1+ month(s) stay; and we offer unfurnished apts and condos for 11+ months stay. All appliances are included in extended stay and unfurnished units.

Extended Stay

Extended stay is furnished housing that includes furniture and cookware, dishes, silverware and all dinnerware; kitchen soap and scrubbers, bathroom soap; linens; iron and ironing board, vacuum, alarm clock, and free Internet access.

Extended stay housing can be located in any suitable location (such as hotels, apartments, condominiums, or single family homes). It's usually most affordable when in an apartment or condominium.
