Quality Inn - Albemarle2.5 out of 5.0
Recent guest reviews
I stayed here 2 years ago and don't remember any issues but this time the breakfast bar was never replenished. There were a lot of workmen staying there who wiped out all the "good" stuff before I came down to eat about 8:15. One morning there was nothing where the warm sausage and "egg thingies" were. One morning there were 2 sausage patties. The automatic pancake makes was empty two mornings. (What happened to the waffle machines on the tv ads?) There was plenty of cereal and bread for toast and the standard muffins. Coffee was not real good neither was the orange juice out of the dispenser machine. Rooms were clean and I felt safe--I was traveling alone. Had I known ahead of time that most of the guests were workers, I probably would have paid to have gone to another hotel. Also felt like the price was about $15-$20 too high for what I got--no pool or even an outdoor sitting area.
I used the reviews and photos to make my decision to stay at Quality Inn with my daughter and her 3 year old. I reserved a 1 bedroom suite on the phone with Choice hotels. We arrived at 8 PM after a family birthday party. We were tired and the 3 year old was at the end of his rope. The hotel is on the main drag between a Sonic and a store. The desk clerk was very sweet and helpful but the small lobby smelled of cigarette smoke. We took the key fob and headed to room 130. Parking lot was full of construction trucks with workers heading to their rooms. Opening the door...it was 1950. The pull out couch was a small love seat. It was old but I suppose clean. The bedroom was 3 feet from the bed. There was a small barrier wall separating couch from bed. The bed had no bedskirt. It gave me the impression we were in an old B movie. I never walked in to check out the bathroom. Three steps in. I left. The sweet desk clerk refunded my charge. This is a construction workers style hotel. $85 and you get a clean room with breakfast. But no frills. I think Quality Inn is just a good bed for the price. For $30 more we stayed at Holiday Inn. It was what worked for 2 adults with a 3 year old. Make sure you reserve in advance. We got the last room. I think the photos were misleading. Rooms looked larger and more modern.
Because of work, I stay in hotels all across the county for months at a time. I check into this place for one night, I have never wrote a review before, but this can't be pass up. First off, when we check into the hotel the staff was rude, we had requested a non smoking room, but somehow got a smoking room, still a clean bed is better than no bed. But the problem was the bed was dirty, when we ask for clean sheets was told that didn't have any.
We needed a quick overnight stay after filming a wedding in the area, so or our needs this was good. There are two things that kept you from getting 5 stars. When we arrived we could not go in the lobby and check in, we had to ring a door bell and stand outside at a window, wait for an employee then check in. This was not very comfortable in an unfamiliar area outside at night. I found myself constantly looking over my shoulder. You just never know people this day. Just felt vulnerable which was uncomfortable. While I can understand why you may do this, you may want to consider a better option. The second and most frustrating thing is we walked into a very hot room. This has happened to me at two hotels now and it's frustrating. After a very long day of work to walk into a room this hot and have to wait a long time for the AC to cool the room is just unnecessary. I'm not a hotel owner or manager, but I can assure you if I knew I had guest coming in..and they knew because I called, I would make sure that room was comfortable. Other than that, the room was very clean and the bed very comfortable. I have no complaints with the room itself except the AC not running for us. We didn't eat so can't comment on the food. If you're looking for a short stay at a clean hotel with a nice looking and roomy room and comfortable bed at a good price, feel comfortable booking this place.
For the money the Quality Inn is an excellent place to stay. Our room was very clean and looked very nice. The one thing that I can say was wrong and mind you I don't think this is something I would say very often since I'm a woman, but I would have given up 6 inches on the counter for the sink to add it to the bathroom wall.The bathroom is very small but was clean. Staff was very helpful and considerate. Hotel is in a very good location.
The front desk attendant was very helpful, his name was Thomas Edwards. Saw things that could be improved on. Shower head fell off into tub when I turned water on, I reinstalled it myself. Clock did not work, refrigerator did not cool very well either. There are areas in this hotel that need improvements.
This is probably one of the least expensive places in town. Many places were already booked up too. Good wifi at room. Bed was very comfortable; I slept well every night. Free breakfast was standard fare but plentiful. Things were replenished as needed. The room was quite large with a micro and small fridge. Only small negative - quite tight quarters in the bathroom. There's only about 1/2 inch clearance between the door and toilet which makes it a dance to get in and out of the room. Plus one almost sits on the TP holder. My plans changed but the desk clerks were always helpful and accommodating as we made almost daily changes. I appreciated their flexibility! I would stay again.
At the last minute I had to go to Albemarle, NC and every hotel was booked except the Quality Inn. After reading the reviews I almost thought about sleeping in the car. I called the hotel and booked the room directly through Patel who was very accommodating and pleasant. When I arrived the lobby was spotless and very welcoming. The desk clerk was very nice and the process was flawless. I held my breath as I opened the door to the room but was surprised to see a room that had been updated a while ago but had no odors, clean, great bedding, Sony flat screen, nice towels and amenities. The bed was very comfortable and I had no issues with the room. It is an older property so the bath was small but the granite countertop in the sink area overshadowed that feature. The only negative thing was the breakfast area. Although clean and well staffed the food left a lot to be desired. Overall, for the $72 room and good free wi-fi, it wasn't a bad experience and would stay their again but go elsewhere for breakfast.
Booking the room was easy from the app. I was alittle scard since this was my first time getting a hotel, & having to use my credit card info but everything was fine. Checking in was easy, along with checking out. Didn't get up in time for breakfast, so I can't say anything about that. The room was clean, sheets clean, bed was super comfortable, bathroom was clean and etc. The room had a pull out bed *king room* so that was a bonus. But everything was great & worth the money. I would refer this hotel to anyone.
We had the disability room on the ground floor. Standard amenities in the room with the added extras for a disabled person. Standard free breakfast, no imagination in this regard. Very soft bed, too soft for us.
