Positives: The price was OK-and housekeeping does their best. That's about it.

Negatives: Everything else. It was low even for economy standards.

Comments: When I stay at hotels this cheap, I'm not expecting a lot. But this place was really bad. The hotel is outdated- they had these floor to ceiling windows at the door (like an old Holiday Inn, hmmm) that you had to close the blinds or everyone could see in. The mattress was flat, and in spite of scented candles and Febreeze, my room still smelled bad.

Positives: Location, convenient, great staff, beds were quite comfortable and real pillows (not flat).

Negatives: parking lot had much litter, coffee cups too small

Comments: I would stay at this hotel again. The staff were wonderful, the beds were quite comfortable, and the pillows were actual pillows. Not the flat, pretend things you usually get. There were no drafts around the door or windows, either. The breakfast was passable. Coffee - good.

Positives: Affordable, good locations, nice pool.

Negatives: Rooms were really small.

Comments: This is a very nicely-kept older hotel. The pool was great for the kids. Rooms were small, but were neat and clean. The only complaint we have is that one of the woman managers seemed intent on harassing the guests at the pool. She started telling people that they couldn't do this and that in the pool area, even though nothing she was complaining about, were listed on the "pool rules" sign that was posted. I was surprised at her behavior because at check-in she was very nice. Other than that, we had a very pleasant stay.

Positives: Check-in staff was friendly and helpful.

Negatives: Bathroom - toilet paper holder, room - 3 of 4 lights on wall switch, 3 days ran out of OJ.

Comments: The hotel had some great features but was a little run down. There was a restaurant and bar. The outdoor pool was clean and had steps along with ladders. There was a small exercise room. There was a washer and dryer for $1.50. I had a micro/frig which was a nice size. The room had 3 of 4 lights connected to the wall switch. I was able to move one bed light to a seperate wall plug. The toilet paper holder was elbow level when sitting. The sink area was separate from the shower/toilet but, both were on the same switch. Shower/toilet switch had been removed. The breakfast area was ok and they had fruit, one waffle maker ceral and bagels but, 3 of 5 days they ran out of OJ. It served its purpose.

Positives: Helpful friendly staff. Good free breakfast.

Negatives: Rooms could use updating.

Comments: An older hotel, but pretty well maintained. Mattresses not as firm as I like them. Rooms needed better soundproofing, but hotel was in a mostly quiet location. Staff were always helpful and friendly. Did not sample restaurant/bar.

Positives: It was convenient for our trip.

Negatives: Old architecture and styling. Stairs to 2nd floor (no elevator).

Comments: This hotel is convenient and basic. It is a bit off the highway and quiet. It has dated styling, room doors to the outside (rather than a hallway) and somewhat of a "worn out" look. The service was friendly and the room was clean and quiet. Breakfast was adequate but not exceptional.

Comments: I would not recommend this hotel to anyone. This hotel was absolutely filthy. It is old and in desperate need of an overhaul. The walls, floors, shower are covered with dirt and mold. I was grossed out.

Positives: Housekeeping is doing the best with what is provided.

Negatives: Everything but housekeeping.

Comments: Quality Inn says that they provide Serta sleepers in all their rooms. If that was a Serta than it must have been very old. The pillows were so small that it has taken 3 days to get over a stiff neck. The carpet in the room was stained badly. There was a substance that looked like cooking grease dumped outside the door to the room, which we stepped in a couple of times. This place is in bad need of a major renovation. I will not be a repeat customer and would not recommend this place unless you are in a serious pinch.
