I stayed here a couple of times in 2006 (see earlier review) and I wasn't enthralled. Based on reviews that described renovations in process, I gave it another shot. When we arrived, the desk clerk was dealing with an unpleasant situation with another arrival who learned there were no rooms available. I had confirmed my reservation earlier, so I had no problem; however, by that time the desk clerk's nerves seemed a bit frayed from this, and other incidents.
While the air of neglect I had experienced earlier was virtually gone--the lobby and our room were clean and the room was not musty--the renovations felt more like they were intended to get the Quality Inn "up to code," rather than making it especially attractive. The old restaurant, which served the only greasy Indian food I recall eating, was gone and replaced by one with a family style menu and a bar, with little atmosphere. For dinner, our waitress seemed to be going through the motions. The food for dinner and the buffet breakfast were mediocre, and it took awhile to replenish several of the hot items for the latter.
My first review of the QI in 2006 was also among my first for Trip Advisor. In retrospect, based on what I wrote and remember, as well as my subsequent reviews of other properties, I think I should have given it two stars instead of three. The Quality Inn has made strides since then, but going backward was not a real option.
