I didn't like anything about this property. It was dingy, and dirty. It smelled so bad in the halls, and there is no elevator. When I walked into my room it smelled awful! I had to go to the store and buy air freshners just to be able to stay there. The bathroom was disgusting! Especially the tub! It was discolored and dingy! The ceiling had ceiling tiles, and mold growing on them.The supposed "clean towels" were filled with stains, and discoloration. Not to mention the fact that this place has a bad roach infestation! I killed several of them when I was in the bathroom, and on the bed, checking for bed bugs. The matress and boxspring were of poor quality. The mattress barely had any springs in it. There were no mattress covers on the bed to protect against bed bugs or stains. The place was digusting,and I will never stay there again! Do not go here unless you like living in flith. I am thankful I only booked one night there.

I used to like this hotel and would stay here every time I came to town because it was inexpensive but yet clean convenient and comfortable. This stay was not. First, I was disappointed that unlike times before, we were not able to check in 30 mins early. This was not a big deal because I can understand enforcing rules but that caused us to have to be late for the party that we came to town for that started at 3 so thus not convenient. Also, they got rid of the welcome cookies that I used to look forward to coming there for. The first room that we had on the 2nd floor was not up to par. The refrigerator was moldy, the bathroom tub stopper didn't work, whoever cleans does not sweep behind the bathroom doors and the shower curtain was nasty. The whole 2nd floor smelled like marijuana that night so we asked could we be moved to the 1st floor on the 2nd night. We were obliged. The guy working there was very nice and friendly. The 2nd was was a bit better however there was hair behind the sink faucet and door still. The beds were not very comfortable (sort of uneven) and there was no blanket, only sheets and a slightly thicker decorative sheet cover. The outside of the hotel still smelled like marijuana that night. The fitness room was out of order. There was no protein provided with the breakfast and only a bitter cranberry and coffee and the drink juice. The pro is that the only bugs we saw were spiders and it was quiet at night. I will no longer be staying here.

The room wasn’t cleaned very well we had to clean the toilet and jacuzzi. The floors were dirty. The pool and fitness center were under construction and not open. The jacuzzi took 2 hours to fill. The bed had broken springs. Pretty disappointed for having paid over 100$

The staff at this hotel are wonderful. From the front desk staff to maintenance, they were all nice, helpful and knowledgeable. The hotel itself is lacking. Our room WAS clean, but our floor was soaked in front of the bathroom door. There was a carpet shampoo'er in the hall by our door so I'm assuming they cleaned the carpet but the floor was soaked the duration of our stay. The phone had some sort of greasy stuff all over it- clearly had not been cleaned prior to our arrival. Bed was comfortable. This was really not a great stay for us, and I have held off on reviewing for a couple of weeks to see if my perspective changed, but no...barring a natural evacuation disaster situation where this was my only option I would not stay here again. Fingers crossed that the ownership invests in some upgrades or more cleaning staff to maintain the hotel appropriately.

Nice and affordable good breakfast. Room had a good smell in the past the rooms had prob been smoked in but wasn't noticeable this time. A problem I sometimes find in this kind of hotel. Good job on that . The bathrooms towels are bit thin but they do the job.

I was expecting a nicer hotel so was disappointed when I pulled up and it was next to a not so nice motel. I had 2 adults and 3 kids and was upstairs with no elevators. The pool was in the back of the hotel and not very inviting. I asked for extra towels and was told twice they would b brought up and nothing.

This was over all a pretty low rated hotel. The room smelled bad, the shower was dirty. The staff was friendly, but it just left a lot to be desired in the cleanliness department. Television had lines through the screen, but the WIFI was good, so I just watched my computer. Breakfast was average!

We arrived a little earlier than normal check-in time and the front desk clerk was very nice and gave us a room, unfortunately housekeeping personal had not done a complete clean up. Front desk clerk went out of her way to make room clean!

Very good for the price. the best of the area hote

Motel smelled very musty and was very warm upon arrival. The first night we noticed only one other car. Turning on the air conditioner in the room improved the musty smell significantly. The room was clean but the bathroom had no vent fan. The heat vent in the bathroom was very dirty. Staff spent minimum time on checki in and did not mention breakfast availability. Definately will not stay there again and most certainly not recommend it.

Just stayed at this Quality Inn over the past weekend for a nearby wedding. The hotel room was very decent for the price I paid ($76/night with tax and fees included). The king bed was very comfortable and I haven't been able to sleep in like that in a long time! (woke up at 10:30am both mornings). Only negative is our room was close to the front desk so could hear the foot traffic and noise in the morning as the walls are very thin. Otherwise, we had a great stay!

Not bad better than most The location was great and the room decor was excellent

We stayed one night on our way through town. Room and facilities were clean and the staff was friendly.

Desk attendant did not have information concerning room request: handicap acsessiblle or late check-in. I provided the copy of my receipt. They offered a room upstairs with no elevator. It was changed to a first-floor room and all was well.

We attended our son's wedding. The hotel was very convenient to where the wedding took place. The room we had was very nice. We had an enjoyable trip.

Great value for a quick weekend trip.

Hotel was clean. Did have a musty smell. We had a nonsmoking room but we could tell it had been smoked in in the past.

tHE ROOM WAS TOO SMALL. WHEN YOU OPENED UP THE SOFA BED IT HIT THE KING BED, NO ROOM TO WALK AT ALL. MICROWAVE NOT HOOKED UP, HAD TO MOVE TO THE BATHROOM. ROOM WAS HOT AND STALE WHEN WE FIRST ENTERED IT.

The only real complaint I have about the hotel was that the air conditioner didn't get the room cool enough and it felt kind of humid in there. Otherwise, it was a nice place.
