“Wouldn't stay there again....”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed June 26, 2013

The front desk folk were nice and helpful but the Indian manager was obnoxious! On our first night, we were getting bit by mosquitos. I cut the lights off and shone a flashlight around the room only to find hundreds of mosquitos on the ceiling and walls. I went to the front desk where the Indian manager gave me a can of flying insect spray and told me not to leave our door open. I explained we had never left the door open and he kept arguing with me saying that was the only way they'd get in the room. After bombing our room with spray, we managed to sleep through the night despite wondering if we'd ever awake (the fumes were horrible!). The next morning , I asked them to ask the housekeepers to please keep the door closed during room service and that seemed to do the trick as we only had a few mosquitos that night. Other negatives... the bathroom smelled of mildew (the shower head was covered with it!) , the ceiling was covered in dust balls hanging by a string, the volume of the TV was barely audible and the pool looked like it was full of brackish swamp water. I won't even get into the details of being told the didn't accept traveler's checks upon arrival. Positives? The sausage gravy offered at breakfast wasn't too bad and the older white-haired gentleman working the front desk did everything he could do help us out despite the Indian management.

Room Tip: Keep on driving!

It is low structure on the highway 13. It is a "motel style" hotel with exits directly to the grounds.

The hotel and rooms are a bit tarnished by time. Something heavy had hit our tub and made a scar on the enamel. There is no password for Internet, a problem that gives pedophiles easy access.

There is no microwave in the room, but there is one in the reception area. There is a big sign on it: Do not put eggs in the microwave! Are there anyone that stupid?

The bedlinen had a faith odor of chloride and the towels outright reeked from chloride. You will hear the neighbor take the morning shower, and to step outside into the fresh air was a joy. In the bathroom/WC there is only one switch that starts both the exhaust fan and the light. A bit noisy at nighttime if you have to get up. The toilette bowl was filthy under the rim, - a real heaven for bacteria. Careful so they don't jump up and bite your behind! There is however a pilot-light under the hairdryer to the WC, smart at night. The shower-head was high on the wall. Nice for someone over 6 ft.

There is an exercise room, but was no water in the water cooler. There was one towel and to look at the Telly, - you will have to look at it through the mirror in front of you. There are mirrors all around which of course make the room appear larger. Our room key had to be reprogrammed to give access to the exercise room. The equipment was probably installed at the time of the dinosaurs. It even sounded from time to time like a newborn brontosaurus.

There is a pool in the inner courtyard, but at our visit it was covered with a tarp. The Ice-vending machine did not work. Maybe they turn it off for a chilly day? The reception and the breakfast room is the same, and not exactly intimate but OK. There was one brand of jelly, juice had to be fetched, no cheese and no ketchup. The garbage bin was stuffed and items fell to the floor. If you like a nice breakfast, you should probably look elsewhere. What was good? The people at the reception desk, - welcoming and also accommodating, - when asked!

We usually stay with the Choice hotels in the US, except in the larger cities where often chose a more expensive brand. Choice sends an e-mail advise on your coming stay. Not so with this hotel in Onley. Where the fault lies, - I haven't a clue?

I have used a catching heading in this review. That is to catch readers, but beware , -there is nothing catchy with a stay at this hotel. It is not awful, but it certainly does not deserve the brand-name "Quality". This "hotel" could easily aspire to become the first in the new Choice brand; "Motels".

Room Tip: There may be good rooms, but certainly not ours.

We had to stay a number of days in this area. After the total disaster of the Shore Lodge, I was very happy to find the Quality Inn right down the street. It is a perfectly normal motel, kind of cute brick building around a seasonal pool. Clean enough, modest breakfast, near to restaurants.

This is the second time we have stayed here
in the past 6 months. The gentlemen that runs
it is very friendly. His name is Mike. The
rooms are nicely maintained, with appropriate
furnishings, and very comfortable. The beds
are comfortable and the shower has a fabulous
shower head. The water pressure is awesome!
All of the staff are very friendly and welcoming!
I can't wait to stay again!

Apparently this location has had 3 owners in as many years. The staff seems very nice but the owner has a lot to learn about manners in this country. Also, the furniture is coming apart and the whole place needs an up date. Frankly, the only thing I can say good about my last visit....water pressure was excellent.

I don't think this hotel would get as many bookings if it wasn't the only one in the area. Long drive needed a place to stay this was it. Everything had a feeling of not quite clean about it in our room. At breakfast the supplies were lacking. Disappointed.

Try to make it short...frig was iced up and unable to use, jacuzzi had broken nobs, wasn't clean, and after cleaning it myself, it didn't work! Hardly any channels on TV...was told price would be adjusted, it never was...manager seems to be "out" even as of today (we stayed 7-24-12). No coffee in the am...no creamer...like wow...really? But there aren't alot of options in that area. Pool didn't even look very clean...staff was pleasant though...that says something good...pillows and bed comfy...

Room Tip: Don't book online...lol prices are actually cheaper if you call them directly.
