Pros: Friendly management. Clean room, but carpet had pet stains all over. Con: Free WiFi - But every click of the mouse brought up an ad that covered an inch and a half of my computer screen. There was also an ad at the bottom of the screen. There was no way to turn off the ads. Most hotels offer... More

This is my second time staying at this hotel, the first was 7 years ago. I remembered it because the rates are reasonable and you get a very spacious suite. I have 4 kids so spacious is the key. Bedroom with two beds and separate living room, hot tub and counter area. Fridge seems sketchy....I have a feeling it's not... More

I'm not even sure where to begin. SERIOUSLY! This place should only allow check-ins prior to sun down, because being outside in this part of town is unsafe. The doors here are truly locked for the safety of its guests. Fold out couch had no linens and there was a large blood spot on the mattress. Asked front desk for... More

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.
