Sorry to complain, but this is one of the worst hotels I have stayed in. I don't expect a lot, but I do expect a clean room and hotel. Carpet was filthy, halls were dirty. Entire building needs a face lift. Window at front entrance was broken too. We stayed at this hotel because Ramada was full and we where... More

This is the worst Quality Inn I have ever stayed in. It is very old and outdated. There was mold on the under side of the bathroom sink, the pillows are the smallest I've ever seen. Spent one night here then moved next door to the Ramada.

The staff was very friendly and the place was quiet and clean. The rooms were very large and the beds were super comfy. The fitness center was great and not crowded when I was there. Definitely a good place for a cozy getaway weekend.

I really enjoyed my stay at this Quality Inn. The beds were dreamy. The staff makes you feel welcome and treated me like a VIP. My room was very very clean. As was the lobby and pool area.

This Hotel charges 60 a night for a room that is worth about 35. Greeted the first morning by a manager colorfully discussing the skill set of an employee. Second elevator is still broken - see the November posting. No mention of what the breakfast included or where it was located. Strip Club on the corner. Visiting family and one... More

I stayed here because it offered the best coupon in a travel brochure. It is not a fancy place, could use a top to bottom cleaning, and the neighborhood appeared to be a little seedy but there were no issues. The bed was comfortable though I'd recommend you bring your own pillow as they offered some really small square pillows... More

My fiancee and I stayed here for two nights. Unfortunately we didn't read the reviews before booking a room. The hotel is in need of a gut rehab. There were disgusting looking, dirty couches in the lobby. Even though we had a non-smoking room, as soon as we stepped into the hallway our noses were assaulted with the pungent smell... More
