There were a few bright spots in my stay that I'll address immediately, then move on to the depressing aspects! The customer service is solid. The evening front desk agent was fantastic - helpful, kind, professional. The overnight front desk agent was welcoming and cheerful. These employees should be commended for their hard work in the midst of a worn-down... More

I am always a bit amazed when I see some shocking reviews of a hotel, and I experience nothing close to the sort. I am a firm believer in getting what you pay for, and you certainly achieve that at this Quality Inn. One thing I will agree on that appears in most of the bad reviews is that the... More

We stayed at this hotel strictly for sleep - checked in at 9pm and checked out at 7am the next morning. We got a great deal on a 2-room suite with 2 double beds, a pullout couch and 2 bathrooms. The rooms were big, we didn't feel cramped at all. The bedding was clean, the pullout couch was sufficient (surprisingly... More

This hotel is in need of investment. During a 2 night stay the elevator broke and a water pipe leaked on the ground floor. The staff is solid and very helpful but they cannot overcome the basic condition of the building (carpets, flooring, beadlinens, etc). We had not issues at all with the staff just the conditions of the hotel.... More

This place is in a seedy neighborhood. But that is just the beginning of the problems with this establishment. They put me on the 5th floor. When I got to my room and opened it, there were no light switches anywhere near the entrance. I had to use my phone to give me a little bit of light til I... More

When we checked in the service was great even though we checked in at midnight. We literally only stayed 12 hours, but for the price we would stay again. Great for a pit stop in a road trip. When we got to the room it was kinda smelly and out dated, but the bed was comfortable.

Was traveling to Minneapolis and this was about 1/2 way for us to break up the trip. Apparently, that was all I looked at and failed to read the reviews. If I had I can guarantee we would NOT have stayed here. Parking was scarce. It was in a shady part of town and we could here people yelling in... More

Check in was ridiculous and long. I arrived early am and has paid for my room through a website and the guy and the front desk initially refused to let my nephew and me check-in. It took and hour and half to finally get our room. He refused to give us a double room and my nephew would have to... More
