No frills here, but none are required. For this price, just getting a clean room is nice. However, this place exceeds that expectation easily. Friendly staff, nice room, cheap price. I recommend it heartily.

The hotel is dated but is a good stop over on trips. Well located @ on and off ramp to I#40. The price is right and quite Mike the desk manager is very personable, friendly and efficient. The night desk manager Ken is rude and Lazy. I had to firmly ask for a checkout receipt 3 times. The first two... More

Yes it's old. They are in the process of renovating. I like to stay at Quality Inn but there was nothing available. For the money it was a good deal. Mike, the young man who checked me in, is a keeper. If I was 30 years younger, he would have been in real trouble. LOL. He is smart, personable and... More

My wife and I were on a road trip and stayed our first night here. The room, while a bit aged, served its purpose. It had a fridge with freezer bin, which was fantastic. The shower and sink worked properly. The bed was clean and comfortable, but the carpet showed a bit of wear and had a few stains. the... More

Reeked of cigarette smoke even though we requested a non-smoking room. Old TVs, no alarm clocks or coffee makers. There was filled in holes in the bathroom where they changed out the faucet. The breakfast was a joke, 2 kinds of cereal, oatmeal, crusty pastries and awful waffles that were made in a home waffle maker. And the juice was... More

A so-so hotel, but worked for $57. Room was a little musty and dated. Maybe a 27 inch CRT TV, but cable service seemed OK for the few minutes I watched it. The say they have a premium movie channel included. I was too tired to check to see which one. Pillows were unsubstantial and not great for someone who... More

It started bad and got worse. The desk clerk couldn't find my reservation. Finally he found it. The front drive was blocked and I had to drive all the way around the building to get to my room. I lugged in all my luggage and found it was not a handicap room, as I had reserved. I didn't feel like... More

The location is great, near everything, mall, restaurants, shopping and entertainment and only minutes from downtown. The room was clean, and had all the amenities, microwave, refrigerator, iron etc. The staff was very friendly and helpful. And although it was the time of a big college game and the motel filled with partiers there was no excessive noise or problems.... More
