I strongly encourage anyone planning to stay at this hotel to sleep in your car! Don't be fooled by the building. From the street it looks like a nice place. The room was cheap, but this hotel left a lot to be desired. The first room had a broken lock and a huge spider, as well as hair in the... More

A friend and I stayed in this motel one night after riding motorcycles all day. That day was warm with temperatures in the upper eighties and we were looking forward to cooling off in the pool. However, the pool was closed it's a seasonal thing. The lobby was in okay condition and the staff was friendly. The two rooms were... More

This is now an econolodge. The room we stayed in smelled awful. It was "non-smoking" but whoever was downstairs or next door was filling our room with second hand smoke. They must spray something to try and cover it up. Had to ask for shampoo. Sleep in your car, do yourself a favor.

Good breakfast and the place was clean. Older motel that has been around the block several times, but is OK for a short stay. Bed was fair and probably in need of replacement. Great view of Pilot Mountain.

Very over priced for the quality of Quality Inn. The street sign was not lit to be seen after dark. The tub surround had a soap dispenser missing ,leaving holes in the wall . The surround was coming off the wall and not caulked . It was marked up and did not appear to be clean. We were given no... More

The late night staff was great and very friendly but the rooms were awful, having a lot of water damage and many spiders crawling through the rooms and onto the beds.... Needless to say, do not waste your money here

This was an awful experience, NO HOT WATER... has to exchange key cards 4 times in less than 24 hours. Called the front desk about the water and was told there was no water due to the fact everyone else was taking showers and there was nothing they could do. When I addressed the owner, he said he had no... More

Checked in on Mon. 10-29-12 . Trying to beat the big storm. Very pleasant check in & as we entered the room it looked nice also. But, on further inspection the tub an toilet area were obviously, I hope, in the middle of a remodel. The shower walls were glue ? stained, toilet seat was loose. The rest of that... More

This place is in need of immediate upgrading. It has peeling wallpaper and dirty looking bathrooms. I do not recommend it at all. Breakfast good. Outside walkway ceilings peeling. Needs a complete update. I am surprised that Quality Inn lets them use their name. Stayed in a Scottish Inn the next night for 1/2 the cost andmuch cleaner place.
