“No quality at this Quality Inn”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed November 7, 2013

When I first drove up to the hotel, I was a bit concerned because there were no cars in the parking lot and it was already 3 pm. Checked in at the office, went to grab some dinner from a local grocery then came back to go into the room. Door to the room stained liked someone had splashed liquid on it, room smelled, dust on top of microwave, fridge stained, dented,bathroom questionable,one bath towel, one small towel. Checked bed, sheet and thin bedcover--no blanket. Checked sheets--some questionable items maybe bug carcasses, stains on sheets, sheets did not look freshly laundered. Checked under the pillows, there was a long black hair. Needless to say, I returned to the office and asked for a refund and checked out immediately.

Stayed November 2013, traveled solo

The price was right, person at desk was nice, and the location worked well for my purposes; however, the room was a big disappointment. Fortunately, I was not spending a lot of time in the room, but did expect cleanliness and comfort...received neither. A dirty washcloth was left lying on the back of the commode; supplies had not been replenished (such as paper cups...there was one!); floor was not clean, especially bathroom floor. Actually, the bathroom was so tiny that there wasn't much of a floor at all, so certainly it would not have taken more than a minute to clean it! I wonder if the room had really been cleaned at all. I did sleep, but woke up with a back ache. It's not likely that I will give this motel a second try, which is a shame because I often travel to the area and like this location.

Room Tip: You might want to ask to see the room before actually taking in your luggage. If there are issues, t...

The hotel was a little old but once you got inside to check in and to your room you can tell that this hotel needs a lot of TLC. Front desk was excellent Brian and Roy were very helpful. Will come back in the near future!

We stayed here one night and are glad we didn't have to stay longer!!! The staff at the front desk was very friendly and gave us the room we asked for at what we thought was an ok price using a coupon from a travel book. We were wrong!!! The room itself had been cleaned but not very well, it was very dingy and worn out with molding missing from different places, the mini fridge and the A/C unit rattled like a couple of freight trains, the toilet wouldn't flush every time and the door wouldn't shut proper even though it was locked. Forget about a quiet nights sleep, even if it wasn't for all the noise in the room, this hotel is just too close to a busy road. We will pass on this place next time!!

Room Tip: Choose somewhere that's not along this busy highway and noisy side road.

The room was very comfortable and clean and the prices are always good but was so outstanding was the service of the hotel receptionist. He was so friendly and gave us some fantastic tips on how and where to continue our trip. Highly recommend this site..

No Quality at Tanglewood…..Just a Tangled Dirty MESS!

Arrived late Friday night 8/2/13 on business with early start necessary for the next day and given room 102. It was old and dated, and worse yet dirty. Should have trusted my instincts and checked out and gone to ANY other hotel. Markings on AC were worn off and unreadable….impossible to set to comfortable temperature.

Went to secure the door, dead bolt was loose and security latch hanging by one screw (damaged during a break in the previous night?). Sink did not have stopper (just a dirty drain), tub and shower were also dirty. Outlets were missing covers with hazard of shock. Electrical metal raceway below headboard was loose, rusted and dirty.

Carpet worn and dirty especially around baseboard. Worst of all…. air conditioning unit produced a loud ‘clunk’ every time the thermostat cycle and called for cooling. Continued AC cycling thunking made sleep impossible.

Quality Inn Tanglewood offered a $21.53 refund. Unacceptable. Contacted Choice directly via their Customer Service phone number, and supervisor John politely acknowledged my concerns, and offered additional support. Very satisfactory.

I will NEVER stay at the Quality Inn Tanglewood in Roanoke VA again…..and although Choice to its credit was courteous and supportive, I would suggest that they distance themselves from the Quality Inn in Tanglewood as it definitely does not meet the high standards of their other hotels at which I have stayed in the past.

If you have a choice, and want Quality Do NOT stay at the UN-Quality Inn Tanglewood 3816 Franklin Rd Roanoke VA…..avoid it…

you would be better off sleeping in your vehicle, at least your vehicle doors lock!

The room My husband and I stayed in was disgusting. Mirrors had toothpaste visibly splatered on them,shower was gross, microwave was filthy, fridge had what looked like crumbs in it. Horrible!! place. The lady that came to "clean" our room the second day didn't even Vacuum, She did not clean any thing. She came in took trash out left us one small bottle of shampoo and conditioner and she was out the door. When we tried to have breakfast there about 9 a.m they were out of most things, there were two people at front desk and they did not bring any more food out. They are supposed to have breakfast til 10.
