Pros: The room was clean and didn't smell bad. The bed was comfortable and the sheets were clean. The bathroom was also clean and the towels were adequate. All other ordinary common amenities were present and adequate for the price of the room. Cons: This hotel has no elevator, so I had to painfully struggle up the stairs to my... More

Clean and busy because the price is great. Very handy to be able to have happy dogs stay with us. Very convenient off of I-5. Busy busy busy breakfast area. Go early to be sure there is still a good supply of food.

First off the location is bad. The local farmers fertilize their fields with cow manure so the smell is like the farm. If you like that then ok. The road noise is bad so don't open your window so if you need to cool off you will have to listen to the air conditioner. After the first night our bathroom... More

We stayed here during a recent trip to the Seattle area. The clerk was very friendly and check in was quick and easy. She also recommended a restaurant for us and it was nice. This is an older hotel and the rooms are small but very clean. The breakfast was the usual Choice Hotel fare and we had no complaints... More

They are not handicap friendly at all. Room smells, no elevator, 28 stairs to 2nd floor, bed spreads... More

I was in Arlington on a news assignment and having trouble getting a hotel room after being up all night doing live news feeds back to NYC. I actually got on the phone with the local Quality Inn desk because the internet was showing them full. The manager had just gotten a cancellation and said she would hold the room... More

We have been traveling to the Arlington, WA, area nearly every month over a five year period, and have found the Quality Inn to be a comfortable place to stay. As a Senior Citizen and Choice Privilege Member,we find the rates to be acceptable. The fact that there is a restaurant across the parking lot makes for a complete "away... More

A quick walk across the parking lot from a restaurant and lounge makes this a smart and comfortable choice. I've stayed a few times and have always been happy with the comfort and quality within this price range

I did not give a good rating based on things that could easily be fixed. Starting with front desk. Very average customer service not living up to the Quality name. Not even "how are you?", "What brings you to town?" May sound small but this is what makes people feel like they are wanted, then rather a number. Also In... More
