We stayed at the Quality Inn for one night last week. Seeing that there were many options in the area we decided to go to Quality Inn because we have stayed at one once before. We were wrong and regret staying at this location. I agree with the other reviews about many things. First of all the morning staff was... More

I had to switch rooms the night I stayed because I found a used condom wrapper next to the bed. The room I moved to wasn't very clean either. When I went to get some ice and a soda from the machines by the lobby, everything had an "out of order" sign on it. I checked with the desk clerk... More

The building, itself, presents very well as does the lobby. It's when you get to the room that the issues begin. 1. There isn't enough light. The roo either needs another lamp or it needs to have the existing walk lamps placed over the beds rather than in between them. The switch for one lamp did not work. When you... More

Very reasonably priced and honors discount coupons. All the amenities; micro/fridge, hairdryer, iron/board cable & HBO, fitness center & more. Although close to the intersection of I-20 and I-26 it was a quiet sleep location. Attentive staff. Nice breakfast room although the offering is mostly carbs. Although I'm rating this as "average" the price for a double was $50 was... More

Have stayed here before. This stay was better than the last. The room they gave me this trip was 315. Room was clean and in good shape. Stayed here on a week night. All was quiet. No problems to complain about.
