Our car broke down in Virginia while driving from Massachusetts to Virginia. We limped it off the exit and stopped at the first hotel we saw, which was the Quality Inn in Thornsburg. We were just expecting a roadside motor inn, but the room was actually quite nice. The AAA rate was $79. There is an outdoor pool. The room they gave us was handicapped accessible, so it was big and the bathroom was huge! The room had a really nice shower, firm matress, and even a recliner. We also had a microwave and refrigerator. The hotel is pushed back off the main road, so it's a little tricky to find, but nice and quiet. My only complaint was the person working the front desk was not well informed. Quality Inn, like all Choice Hotels, offers frequent flyer miles to United Mileage Plus members. When I tried to give him my account number at check in, he had no idea what I was talking about. Apparently he was not aware of the program. Also, we had trouble getting our phone to work -- we couldn't dial out -- and he wasn't of much help. After three phone calls to the front desk he finally came to our room, but he couldn't figure it out either. I wound up calling AAA from a pay phone outside the lobby, where it was about 95 degrees instead of calling from the air conditioned comfort of my room. Other than that, it was a great stay. The free continental breakfast ends at 9:30, so I would recommend putting it a little later for us late sleepers.
