I stayed here after some very intense research, in December-January. I had broken my wrist and needed a comfortable, quiet place to stay for a few weeks - I have family in Fort Collins but couldn't stay in their house.
Quality Inn was marvellous. My room was big, comfortable, warm and had the best view over towards the Rockies, the sunsets were magnificent. The train going past a few times each day was really interesting to watch, and after the first night I didn't even hear it. The occasional train is very different from a busy road where the noise may never stop.
There was enough room and furniture to have several activities going - computer, jigsaw puzzle, newspapers etc. I managed to eat "at home" quite a lot owing to the microwave and refrigerator, and being on the bus route right past Wholefoods I could get fantastic food which was fresh, tasty and healthy, and heat it up in my room. I was using the bus quite a lot because I wasn't confident about driving with one arm in a cast, so having a bus service every 20 minutes very nearby was wonderful.
The cleaning staff were absolutely lovely (I got to practise my spanish with them) and the reception staff very pleasant and helpful with all my difficulties. I was grateful for the cheap laundry services in the hotel and the big screen computer and printer available there too. The breakfast, although free, wasn't fantastic - too sugary and fatty for my liking but it was still nice to see a few other guests in the morning, and read the paper with a cup of tea.
Across the road, Barnes and Noble was a saviour - with its cafe and so many comfortable armchairs, I spent many enjoyable afternoons there reading all kinds of books and magazines.
I had a look at the alternatives and found most were located on busier roads or too close to the freeway, or had trucks pulling up at all hours. I think I made a great choice.
I got a great weekly rate, and really enjoyed my stay. Thanks so much!
