We picked the motel because of the the low rates they were offering and so we had low expectations on the quality of service. However, the checkin went well, the front desk gave good recomendations on restaurants and alternate routes to avoid traffic. The room was not exceptional but it was clean. The continental breakfast was pretty good too. We... More

we arrivedafter 7 p.m. And found a very nice but totally overburdened staff person trying to deal with clients on lime,a phone ringing off the hook and more. The hotel feels very patchy in quality. Our king room had wires hanging out of the ceiling, dirt stains on the carpet, no hairdryer, a small kitchenette with no dishes or pans.... More

It's a cheap, dingy fairly clean hotel. For 4 of us it was about $55 USD. Can't expect much and don't get much. But when booked as we did it's reasonable value. Two beds, one double, one queen. Fridge, microwave, TV.

Hotel is in shambles. Holes in the walls, burnt toilet seat, dirty carpets, and non-smoking rooms smell of smoke. This is currently listed on multiple site as a 2* Quality Inn, simply because they are on the same property. We came to the Quality Inn, which was not even open for business, as there were no other car in the... More

I Seen a lot of negative reviews which made me very leary to bring my wife and family here. I have to say though they have a manager named Tanya and she is very helpful and knows her stuff as well as the area she personally made sure the room was suitable for us before sending us to the room....

We stayed here because I was trying to get points on this trip for staying in Choice Hotels. We arrived at 6:30 and they told us our king smoking room wasn't clean, but they could give us a room with double beds. Why would I want that when I booked a king room. Went outside for a few minutes came... More

Was not what I expected. I liked that they could book me a room with out being 21 but the room was not that clean. Carpet stains and sqeaky floors. Breakfast was very limited. They only had waffles. All round I didn't like it.

We booked this hotel because we waited to the last minute and most hotels were already booked. It was ok for a one night stay just needing a place to sleep. Staff was nice and brought up extra towels right away when asked. Probably won't stay here again though, kind off old and dingy.
