Spent a weekend here recently for a wedding located nearby. See review by Pati F.-her son married my sister! First thing to note is that there are no actual suites at this Quality Inn and Suites. When we travel as a family we prefer a suite, but after checking the website AND calling the front desk, I was told that there are no suites only standards rooms. Read on for details of the Pro's and Con's...
Pro...right off the freeway-convenient
Easy to find right off of the freeway. Previous reviews had said it was hard to find, but my experience was quite the opposite. Leisure Town Rd. exit from either East or West bound Interstate 80, then left at Orange St. Orange comes around a big field and there you are.
As part of this, you might think that freeway noise would be a concern. Surprisingly it is not...the rooms are well sound-proofed and you are only slightly aware of freeway noise...big plus given the location so close to the freeway.
Pro...early check in available
Since our family has kids, we prefer an early check in and this was available and we were able to check in around noon.
Con...your preference of room location may not be available
Our party had booked a block for wedding guests and the management had us tucked in the way back when we wanted to be near the pool. We had two choices: wait until 4p to get a room near the pool or just take the way back room. We ended up with the way back room since we did not want to wait 3 hours to get settled. Lesson: call ahead and when requesting early check in, let them know your preference of location.
Clean and comfortable so no complaints there. Nothing special. Good sound proofing!
Con...lack of towels
Housekeeping had a hard time keeping up with our demand for towels and they have a goofy check out system for pool towels.
Older set that lacked reception you would expect these days. At minimum there should be a flat panel with clear reception. My son complained that the channel guide did not match what he was getting on the TV.
We spent most of the time we were actually at the motel at the pool. Decent size, but not fit for any kind of workout. Kids enjoyed having it all to themselves. Plenty of chairs and chaise lounges with tables for food and drink.
There were no umbrellas for shade at the pool. The hot tub was out of order and the pool temp was a bit on the cool side. Lack of poolside towels was a pain as was the goofy pool towel check out system.
Pro...relatively quiet location
Though located right off the freeway, the noise was surprisingly negligible. Local neighborhoods are quiet and great place for a walk. It only take a short 10 minute stroll to get out of ear shot of the freeway for a walk on a country lane.
Con...lack of nearby amenities
Though there is a local bar and grill adjacent to the motel, it is the only one besides fast food joints. To get any kind of groceries or a good cup of joe you have to drive. Lots of chain stores and hard to find the locally owned places that we like to patronize.
As with all my reviews I am super critical of so-called workout/fitness rooms. This one was no exception. A single treadmill, a single recumbent bike and a Nautilus style weight machine. Waste of space.
Overall, this is a place I would stay again if I needed a roadside motel for a nights sleep. I would not seek it out as any kind of destination. There are more upscale accommodations nearby...Extended Stay America and others, but for the price, it is hard to beat for the combination of convenience and price.
