We booked at this hotel about 2 months in advance and comparable to other hotels chains adjacent on the oceanfront, this had the best ratings for the lowest price. When we arrived, check in was fast and the staff was really friendly. We booked two rooms. The family comprised of me, my husband, our 2 year old son, and my mom, for 1 week. When we got to our rooms, I thought, "What the Heck is this?" The room reminded me of a motel room at first glance. Especially the view of the bathroom sink leading to the shower and toilet area. The sink area was small, but well lit. I was expecting something a little more plush, but apparently, I haven't been out for awhile! After dwelling on it a bit, I figured that for the price I paid, I shouldn't have been expecting plush. Overall, the rooms just needed to be renovated.
The shower felt really good and hot. The water beaded down on me without hesitation. Also, I never once ran out of hot water and this was even after being last to shower for an evening out. After I took my shower, I was a little thrown off right before ironing my clothes. The iron was nailed to the ironing board with a metal iron holder and to use the iron, you had to take the entire ironing board out of the closet. The ironing board could have used some oil, as it squeaked as loud as a guinea pig waiting to be fed! Right before I started to iron my clothes, I smelled something burning, as I waited for the iron to heat. Well, to my surprise, there was a piece of plastic melting on the iron, which my husband scrubbed off with a well wrung washcloth. My husband chastised me because he wanted to pack our own iron for the trip, but I told him that was ridiculous. WHO KNEW you had to bring your own iron to a hotel? I certainly didn't know this.
They had awesome Internet service, we were able to use our own technology to set up our own Netflix account and watch movies, etc. The TV was a LG brand flat screen, which was pretty cool. Additionally, the room came equipped with a small refrigerator and a microwave. That was perfect because we were able to warm up our toddlers food and stow away cold drinks instead of using ice to keep things cool.
More, one thing that I did not know until I arrived is that there is a difference between "Ocean view" and "Oceanfront". I booked my trip online and when I booked, oceanfront wasn't an option. Well, if you do not know the difference, let me tell you that ocean view is a view of the ocean, meaning, you could have a pool front room, with an ocean view! I wanted an oceanfront and did not want to be pool side, but like I said, these options weren't available when I booked online. If you want an Oceanfront, you might have to call to make reservations for a room. Luckily enough, the kids and whatnot weren't noisy in the pool, so it all worked out.
Concerning the pools, the outside pool was really nice!!! It was open from about 9AM until 11PM. They also had an indoor heated pool with the same available hours, but unfortunately, I didn't get a chance to check it out. The indoor pool was across the street from the hotel somewhere. Oh and there wasn't a fitness center. I must have read the wrong review because I could have sworn there was one for this hotel.
Parking was located across the street, as well. The only annoying thing about the parking situation, which wasn't any fault of the hotel, was there were some guys outside 24-7 trying to solicit timeshares and everyday we passed, they would harass us.
So last on this review is Quality Inn's breakfast. On the website, it boast of a quality breakfast because it's QUALITY INN!!!! I'm sorry, it wasn't quality in my opinion. I'd have to say that the breakfast and the rooms needing to be renovated a bit were the only downsides to staying at the Quality Inn & Oceanfront Suites. But don't let me get you wrong. I would stay here again and I would recommend to a friend. They only served (EVERYDAY), potatoes, scrambled eggs, which tasted like they were freeze dried food from Nasa's storage kitchen; pork sausage links, dry cereal/milk, yogurt and a variety of bagels, danishes, and muffins, to include your standard beverages, juice, coffee, water, etc. And like Forrest Gump, that's all I got to say about that!
