It's an older hotel and the carpet in the hallways was stained, but our king room was clean with no stains on carpet and had a chair, ottoman, frig, microwave & coffee. Very little counter space in bathroom, but it was clean with plenty of towels. Bed was comfortable, but pillows were small. We didn't go to the breakfast buffet.... More

The room was spacious and quiet. TV cable service was great. The price was very attractive. After all the good news, I discovered that only one ice machine was functional even though there were ice machines on each floor. I hope the machines get repaired before the last one goes down.

Thank you for your comments. I very pleased to hear that you found your room to be clean and spacious. Fortunately, the lone ice machine remained operational until maintenance was able to repair the other two. This time of year our ice machines get a work out. Thank you for staying with us! I hope we see you again soon. More

Stayed for one night, free breakfast is a nice perk. You will have to drive to campus but it is close. If you don't like pets don't stay here. We were woke up by a dog barking, which didn't bother us but could bother others.

Heidi P, General Manager at Quality Inn, responded to this review

I am so sorry about the dog barking! We ask guests not to leave their pets unattended in the room. The dog was likely jealous that everyone else was enjoying the complimentary breakfast buffet and no one invited him. I hope your stay was otherwise enjoyable. Thank you for staying with us and I hope we see you again soon!... More

I'm not sure what else I could ask for in a night's stay! The rooms were large, clean, and even smelled good. The manager, Cinnamon Tice was very accommodating along with the rest of the staff. Breakfast was fresh and tasty. I will definitely be staying again sometime........Lee

We stayed 2 nights for a volleyball tournament and was pleasantly surprised with our hotel experience! The staff at the hotel was very welcoming, as we were greeted each time we entered. The rooms were very simple, but clean. I feel like there should be more electrical outlets, especially near the bed for charging phones. It was nice to be... More

Enjoyed two nights here while visiting with family. Good morning breakfasts, and decent rooms. Nice and quiet. The only complaint is that my husband and I had a room with two double beds. The beds were really only standard doubles and we had to sleep in separate beds because we didn't really fit on one together.

Thank you for taking the time to complete our on-line survey. We are glad that you enjoyed your stay for the most part and apologize about the bed situation. Our hotel only offers double beds (two in each room) or a king size bed. Our king rooms are our handicapped rooms and we try to sell those out last-minute in... More

Once again I've stayed at this Quality Inn. I do feel it's one of the better QI's, based on what others have told me of this brand. Although the location is great (right across from a Waffle Shop), the parking is not so great. After returning to the hotel at night (around 11:30pm), i found several spots occupied by large... More

I have stayed here several times. This particular stay was not very restful. Doors slamming, dogs barking(pet friendly) People talking very loudly about their dogs in the hallway. Next time I will definitely request a second floor room or go somewhere else. Suggestion: keep all the pet lovers in one section.
