In all of my travels by far the worst experience ever with a hotel! The staff was rude, the rating was a 77, the smell was hideous, the clientel left much to be desired (hookers & drug dealers), & top it all off NO WATER IN THE POOL!!! The wesbite is very much misleading. My son was scared to death... More

This is not a hotel. Looks are very deceiving from the online pictures. I would rate lower than Motel 6. I should have turned around when I read "NO REFUNDS AFTER PAYMENT" sign. Once I got to my room, the door knob was riggity where it had been broken and poorly repaired. Upon entrance, the "non-smoking" room, wreaked of smoke.... More

The carpet smells really bad and the bathtub was filthy! The televisions are outdated, and the remotes to them did not even work. Alot of dope dealers and drug addicts roaming everywhere, I... More

Having stayed at a Country Hearth Inn before and being very pleased, I chose this property over nearby competitors. This was a mistake. Old, dirty, lighting that didn't work, nasty carpet and sofa, dirty lot, loud partying until 4 a.m. in the parking lot. If in Goldsboro againg and in need of lodging, I will look elsewhere.

We travel to eastern NC on business at least once a month and sometimes more often. The Quality Inn use to be a regular stay for us while doing business in the Goldsboro area. Due to mismanagement and change of ownership the property had fell is disrepair and the hotel showed lack of interest for it guest/clients. Because of this... More

The pool looked like a swamp it isnt pool season but the pool looks horrible. People selling drugs in the parking lots and thugs wandering around the building all night . The exterior... More
