Getting the best care sometimes means cancer patients must travel away from home.  This can place an emotional and financial burden on patients and caregivers during an already challenging time.  Extended Stay America, the leading mid-priced extended stay hotel brand in the U.S., has committed to making this difficult situation easier for cancer patients and their families. To reduce disparities in cancer outcomes and help patients affordably receive the treatment needed, Extended Stay America has renewed its partnership with the American Cancer Society to offer 20,000 free and 40,000 reduced rate nights at over 760 Extended Stay America locations nationwide.  

Extended Stay America hotels provide a unique, home-away-from-home for cancer patients receiving treatment.  Amenities like fully equipped kitchens, free in-room wi-fi, on-site guest laundry and pet-friendly rooms allow patients to lodge with their caregivers, children, and even beloved pets to provide healing.  In-room kitchens allow guests to maintain their dietary routines and also save money by avoiding restaurant costs.

If you have questions about eligibility for this program, please contact the American Cancer Society's 24-hour cancer helpline at 800.227.2345.



Since 2013, Extended Stay America has provided 150,000 hotel room nights to cancer patients while undergoing treatment away from home.


The Extended Stay America partnership has helped 15,000 cancer patients receive access to potentially lifesaving cancer treatments.


The partnership has helped cancer patients and their families save $9,000,000 in hotel expenses to ease their financial stress.


After six months, I was so tired of living out of my car, staying at friends' houses, asking for favors, while in cancer treatment five days a week. I was at my wit's end and prayed, dear God, please provide me somewhere to stay, I can’t do this any longer. So when I learned about Extended Stay America’s lodging program in partnership with the American Cancer Society, I knew my prayers were answered.

Hotel Guest & Cancer Survivor - Customer Care

Being a complicated cancer case, I have to travel seven hours one-way to get the care I need. Having free lodging for those four nights means a lot less debt to worry about, allowing me to focus on getting through my surgery and healing. Due to the in-room kitchen, I was also able to continue eating healthy and not rely on restaurant food, which is also costly. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for helping me and my family.
