I'm Rachelle, a.k.a "TheMotleyChick," a lover of eclectic but ordinary people, situations & topics and I love sharing helpful resources.
Siegel Suites offers affordable, second-chance apartments with property locations mainly across the South & Southwest, but also in the Toledo, Ohio area.
Understand that when I say "affordable" I do not mean "low income." I would say their rental rates are affordable to a single working person who is making at least $13 an hour, or two people making minimum wage and splitting the cost.
Siegel Suites advertises itself as a "flexible-stay" rental chain that offers studios, 1 bedroom, and 2 bedroom apartments. Whether they are called "flexible stay" or "extended stay" it's all really just the same thing--a quick way to get a place to stay without a lot of hassles.
Because they advertise no-credit-check apartment rentals, their units might be perfect for someone with bad credit or no credit. This is especially true for someone who cannot get an apartment because of an eviction on their credit history.
If you're tired of submitting application after application, only to lose the money you shelled out for high application fees, you might want to check out what they have to offer, so keep reading...
Siegel Suites works hard to brand itself as a low-cost housing option for prospective tenants who are interested in avoiding the long-term commitment of a lease.
The advantages of a no-credit-check apartment option should be fairly obvious for people with bad credit or evictions, but it also works well for those who are simply looking for short-term housing options.
Whether you are attempting to relocate to a new city, you need to move but you do not have the up-front cash for security deposits and first month's rent or you need temporary housing for a short-term stay in one of the cities they serve, Siegel Suites could possibly be a life-saver for you.

On unique perk the chain offers is an opportunity to earn FREE STUFF with their Siegel Rewards program. It is a membership that is free to join and it offers bonuses on a points-based system.
Siegel Rewards offers bonuses like FREE RENT, free slot play at locations near a casino, Visa gift cards, and gift cards to places like Regal Cinemas and Subway stores.
Again, it is free to sign up, so it seems like a no-brainer to join the club; please remember to ask for a membership application.
In addition to their flagship cheap rental options, Siegel Suites offers more premium brand of weekly rental and month-to-month rental options with their Siegel Select brand of locations.
Siegel Select comes with a higher price tag, they offer nicer units with upgraded features like renovated locations, flat-screen TVs, housekeeping services, fitness centers, hardwood flooring, and more.
For me, this one is going to be a toss-up, I can't really see too much of a difference between their regular locations and their select ones. If your goal is to rent at Siegel Selects property, make sure to ask what the upgrades are and then you can better determine if it's worth the higher rate.
Of course, all of the flexible leasing options may sound great, but none of it really matters if there is no location near where you want to be.
The more affordable Siegel Suites has locations in Arizona, Nevada, Texas, Louisiana, Mississippi, South Carolina, and Ohio.
The premium Siegel Select offers locations in Alabama, Arizona, Mississippi, Nevada, New Mexico, Tennessee, Texas, and Louisiana.
Weekly & Month-to-Month Rental Rates
The affordable housing, traditional Siegel Suites Flexible-Stay, all-inclusive apartment rental rates start at just $189 per week.
Their more premium rental sites at Siegel Select can be as low as $164.05 per week if you choose to opt-out of the weekly housekeeping and linen change services.
Siegel Suites tend to offer larger units and more unit type selections and they all usually require a 30-day minimum stay.
I often hesitate to include actual rates in these articles, so just know that the above rates are current at the time of publication, you need to call the properties directly for current rates.
Reviews for the Siegel Suites are going to vary greatly by location. For example, according to Tripadvisor, the Boulder Highway location in Las Vegas, Nevada garners an average rating of 3.0 out of 5. Whereas the McDowell Road location in Phoenix, Arizona garners a subpar rating of 2.4 out of 5 on Google Reviews.
In addition to the varied ratings, the type and unit size offerings will widely differ as well. For instance, the Toledo, Ohio location's aesthetic is more similar to a traditional apartment complex, whereas the Albuquerque, New Mexico location looks more like a traditional hotel.
The Siegel Suites flexible stay chain and its sister properties at Siegel Select, offers weekly and monthly apartment rentals to individuals who would most likely have a tough time finding other rental options.
If you choose to stay for a week, a month or if you want to or need to make it a permanent stay, you should always be aware of your surroundings.
While this advice may seem like common-sense to a lot of people, it is still well worth repeating. Because of the transient nature of the typical temporary dweller at these locations, you need to stay vigilant - especially if you are bringing children with you.
Again, due to the temporary nature of the properties, and the cheap rental rates at some of the properties, they may not always be the nicest units and/or in the best parts of town.
However, if you do your best to make and keep your unit as clean as you can and keep your family as safe as possible, Siegel Suites may be the lifeline you need to help you get back up on your feet.

Hi MsDora! You hit the nail right on the head with that one! I never thought about how moving into a fully furnished unit would make life easier when it comes time to move into better digs. Thank you for your helpful insight!
