2.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Stayed one night for a family function. Clean and quite. Very easy to find and get to, plus convenient to many restaurants and other places of interest in town. Comfortable room, even a nice shower massage.

I needed a good place to sleep during my 2-day trip, with Burlington as my stopover . The motel was convenient, clean and the right price. It fit the bill on all counts. If I ever find myself needing basic overnight accommodations, I'll stay here again.

I was in town visiting my grandmother. All hotels were booked up. I went to this hotel and was greeted by a very nice lady named Kathy. She told me their hotel was booked up as well. She went out of her way and called another hotel (Arrowhead) and asked if there well any Vacancies. She knew the manager and assure me it was a clean place. I was pleased with her help. Thank you for your help Kathy!!!

I always give my reviews relative to the area and price of the hotel. For less than $100, this place is pretty average, but WAY better than the Better than Pzzazz or Super 8 (I have stayed at both). Check in was easy, although I absolutely HATE the fact that the hotel charges upfront for the safe, even if you indicate you are not going to use it. Then you have to request a refund at check out, which means you can't just leave in the morning. My room was average, but clean. Nice fridge and decent coffee maker. The bed was comfortable and clean. Also, very little noise could be heard coming from outside the room. Like many people who stayed at the hotel, I had an event to attend at Fun City. Easy walk from the Quality Inn to Fun City. Finally, the free/hot breakfast is quite good for a hotel in this price point. Bottom line, if you want to be close to Fun City, this hotel is your best choice.

We stayed here and walked to the waterpark. Much cheaper and for a value hotel we were overall happy. Beds were decent and overall clean. My only complaint is no drain plug in the bathtub, shower worked however.

This was my first stay at the Quality Inn in Burlington. I bring boys and girls teams to a 3-day tournament every summer and have grown increasingly unsatisfied with the hotel we normally use, so wanted to try an alternative. The Quality Inn was about $25 more a night, but to me was well worth it. The hotel is not luxurious by any stretch, but I found it to be cleaner and more updated than the rival hotel 100 yards away. I enjoyed the breakfast both mornings and found my room clean and comfortable. It's where we'll be staying during our future return trips to Burlington.

Stayed for two nights on a business trip. The hotel is showing its age and the rooms could probably do with renovations if the property wants to keep up with the times. The hotel is just off the highway, so there is some highway noise in the rooms. My room had a window-unit type air conditioner in it, which was fairly loud and kicking on and off all night. The mattress on the bed was soft and the pillows were firm and comfortable. A microwave and mini-fridge come in the room, and the wi-fi, while a little spotty, was fairly reliable. There is also a room safe, but the hotel charges you for it (whether you use it or not). You can ask them to remove the daily charge at the end of the day, but that practice reeks of cheapness to me. There didn’t appear to be any kind of fitness room or pool. The morning breakfast provided is not gourmet fare, but it does the job. The desk staff are friendly. There are some restaurants across the highway, but really none within walking distance. This is a very car-centric town. You can walk to them but there are no sidewalks and quite a bit of traffic. This area doesn’t really appear to be walker-friendly. So, the hotel works in a pinch, but if there were a Hampton Inn in the area I would have stayed there instead. There is also a Fairfield across the street that looks much newer and nicer.

I stay at a lot of Hotels. This was one of the best. Pricing was good and the rooms were great. I also have to say that they have some of the best staff. They are helpful and very polite. They have a great breakfast that is included in your stay. I will definitely be back here on my next visit to the area.

The staff was very friendly and helpful except for the housekeeper that was upstairs... we did not need our place cleaned and her demeanor was cold and curt. I recommend she be talked to about what the customers wants are. The bathtub was not draining properly either. Otherwise the morning staff was great!

So, I read the previous reviews complaining about stale cigarette odor in rooms, and I saw the hotel's responses that they're switching the rooms over, and they're not all former smoking rooms. So I called the hotel before booking, and asked if I could definitely have a room that was never a smoking room. Sure, they said. And then on my way up to Iowa, I called ahead to make sure I had a never-smoked-in room. Sure, they said. (Can you see where this is going?) I arrived and checked in, the front desk person was super friendly and conversational. I again confirmed that my room (125), had never been a smoking room. Everybody, now: "Sure," she said. And then I got in the room. Unmistakable odor of stale cigarette smoke. I went back to the front desk, and the attendant swore she thought 125 had never been a smoking room. They only had one other room available, but it was in a current smoking section, so that didn't work. Long story short, I barely slept at all, and booked another hotel the next morning. The thing is, my room was one of the updated rooms, and was fine as far as that went. But the odor remained and was unbearable, at least for me. But I want to repeat that the front-desk person was super friendly and felt bad about the room, and they accommodated my request to cancel the second night with no problem. Other than the odor, the hotel is what you'd expect from a lower-end place. The free breakfast was solid: powdered eggs (eh, but works in a pinch), sausage, breads & bagels, waffle maker, yogurt, etc. It was clean. certainly no HI Express or anything like that, but if not for the smoking situation, it would have been fine for my needs, which were just a place to crash.
