“Clean and comfortable ...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 19, 2013 via mobile

Needed place to stay at the last minute and the Quality Inn filled the bill. Clean, comfortable, great rate and very friendly staff. Like the picnic areas with grills out back and pastel-colored adirondack chairs that adorned the grounds. .

I am so glad you enjoyed the new grills and picnic area. We have just added them this spring and have found that they are very popular. Thank you for staying with us! We look forward to seeing you again soon. Heidi

I have stayed at this Hotel multiple times now. Each time the service and quality is better. I was traveling with a group of friends we made our reservations ahead of time. All rooms were available and as requested on arrival. Check-in was extremely fast and without complication. The rooms here are very clean, spacious.
I cannot say enough about the manager of this hotel. We were traveling on motorcycles and had rode in rain for quite awhile. Needless to say our bikes were a mess and it had rained again overnight. We woke up to find towels on our motorcycles and extras were provided if we required them.
Thank-you again to Ms. Manager and her staff. We will return here again.

just 'friendly' in general. This was our first stay in this area with our dog. We found the hotel to be very clean, with an exceptionally welcoming and helpful staff and a super dog-friendly environment. The room was quiet and breakfast was expansive (waffles, hot/cold cereals, eggs, toast, pastries, muffins, bagels, fruit, yogurt etc).

The desk staff gave us directions to places we could walk our dog and see the local sights.
The location is easily accessible to restaurants and even a bit of shopping within walking distance. Although the hotel grounds are small, they will more than adequately accommodate short morning/evening dog walks and pick-up bags and fresh water are readily available.

The rate was competitive...but a choice hotel promotion made it even better (be sure to check their website or sign up for the notices of promotions).

We've been to other pet-friendly hotels and this one would definitely get a top rating from us...and our dog! If we return to the area we would stay here again. it was a bit of a detour from our trip east on I-80, but definitely worth it.

Room Tip: Our room overlooked the main road, we thought it might be a bit noisy, but was perfectly quiet all n...

Not a bad night's stay. The staff was friendly and helpful. We booked this hotel for several nights when the motel we originally booked fell through. The staff was friendly and provided a military rate which is always appreciated. The room we stayed in had a handicap accessible shower which my wife and I were wary of at first. It end up working out without much of a problem. The bed was very comfortable and we got a ton of pillows. Currently the hotel is under construction and there are construction workers staying on the first floor of the hotel. They all get up and leave at the same time, so there was a lot of door slamming all at once around 6:30-7:00 AM. It bothered us the first day. Overall, a reasonably priced, comfortable room

Room Tip: April 2013 - Construction workers staying on the first floor so early mornings can be noisy.

We stayed at this hotel for two nights.It is located in a nice area near restaurants and a shopping center. The rooms were clean and nice. They had a good breakfast, to include a waffle maker. The only complaint is that there was construction. The ramps were blocked off so it was hard to get the bell hop cart to our car. It would have been hard for a handicap person to get in and out of building.

Stayed here one night. Great place.....breakfast was really good. The lady (didn't get her name) who takes care of breakfast was so nice and helpful. Aaron who checked us in was "The Best!". Friendly staff goes a long way in making a stay enjoyable. Hotel was clean and beds were comfortable. Price was great too. About a mile away from the college but I preferred that instead of being right in with the college scene.

Arrived early, but checking in was no problem. Room was very clean and comfortable. The only "complaint" (if you want to call it a complaint) was that there was no available outlet near the nightstand next to the bed, which was a minor inconvenience. Staff was very helpful and accomodating, especially when I thought I would have to extend my stay due to the changing weather conditions. I will most definitely stay here again!
