I was given the hotel number by the airline after they cancelled my flight. Driver arrived in an unmarked minivan. He was pleasant and helpful. On arrival, the place looked awful but as I was only staying one night I thought OK. The heat index outside was over 100 degrees but the reception and hallways had no AC. The first... More

This hotel is owned by the same people that own the Red Roof Roach Motel next door. We moved over to this one after seeing what a disgusting, noisy place the other one was. The guy at the front desk said the owner is planning to combine the two into one giant hotel. When you get inside and see the... More

We stayed near Richmond's airport so that we could make a quick get-away. It's conveniently located maybe 5 minutes from the airport property plus, there's a Burger King less than a block away. It's an older motel, 6 stories high with old, slow elevators. This wasn't a problem, even on a weekend. Quality Inn is one of the choice hotels.... More

I've stayed here before, but it seems this is slipping. I almost think that most of their income derives from the night club, which the day staff tends to desparage. Breakfast is okay, but in the night club, with dim lighting, though devoid of beer and liquor odors. My room seemed to have a mustry odor on entering, though it... More

I don't understand all these negative reviews on this hotel. I stay here often and never had a problem. Never seen mold or bugs or smelled any odors. I think people over exaggerate. Why would you drive 2 hours and drive back instead of going to another one? Plus it's not smoke free and all the pet rooms are smoking... More

I booked this hotel as a much needed weekend getaway for me and my daughter. We took our dog with us. We arrived on a Saturday afternoon. There was no one at the front desk. I went to the restroom and didn't have toilet paper in the first 2 stalls. No soap, no paper towels. The clerk, who was polite... More

I booked this room for some friends since they were visiting the area and wanted to save some money. As a Choice Employee, I chose this location because it was near where they needed to be. They paid BAR rate instead me booking the Choice Friends & Family rate. Once they got checked in, I received a phone call about... More

This place is OLD and if you have the pleasure of stumbling in on a Friday night, you get to walk among the 30 and up clubgoers who loiter in the lobby and argue in the parking lot. Oh yeah, there was what quite possibly could've been a pimp in the parking lot too. For $90, we knew we weren't... More
