We stayed in a suite for two nights because we were touring FSU. The rooms were nicely styled and included a black fridge and microwave. The bed was fairly comfortable and the large plasma televisions in both the living and bed rooms were a real treat. Unfortunately, when we tried to purchase a movie through the pay per view service, the service did not work. Additionally, we had to take the remote control back to the front desk twice to be reprogrammed.
The worst thing about the room was that it was musty and damp. The smell was absolutely overwhelming and since the hallways smelled exactly the same way, I had to assume it smelled like that in every room! I wondered if they had experienced a flood.
Also, the weekday breakfast buffet was much skimpier than I have seen in other Choice hotels. It ended at 9:30 and by 9:15 the cranky hostess was literally shooing us out of the eating area. On the weekend they only serve continental breakfast that includes lots of cold bread items.
Overall, I would probably not choose to stay there again, unless I could be assured that they had cleared up that horrible smell.

Had to change rooms 3 times. Bed bugs, musty rooms, mold in the showers and hair all over. This hotel was disgusting. Guy at the desk was rude and I had to tell him he might want to check the rooms before putting someone in them. Don't waste your time or money here. They want $72 a night here and it is not worth $10. Do yourself a favor and go down the road to Comfort Suites. Great hotel with an incredibly friendly and helpful staff. Great breakfast as well.

The choice hotel properties generally offer an excellent value and this one is no exception. There is a free wine and beer bar from 5-7 (limit two drinks) and a hot breakfast is included. The rooms are standard hotel fare, but the furnishings are up to date and the decor is pleasant. There is an outdoor pool in back, though it was too cool to use it when we were there. Our room did smell like smoke despite this being a non-smoking property, so you might want to check yours first if you are sensitive.

This hotel has a serious bed bug infestation. I found two live bed bugs in my bed as well as evidence of bed bugs beneath the mattresses and linens, etc. I suffered from several bites during a short nap. While changing rooms, it came to my attention that there had been several complaints prior to mine. When I discussed the issue w/ a manager the next morning, he seemed unaware of the seriousness of the situation. He advised me that a spray of bug-spray would solve the problem - which, in the case of bed bugs, is simply not true.

This hotel far exceeded our expectations. Looks great from the outside and is nice inside too. I got a suite with a jacuzzi in it for a special night, it was sweet! Nice heart shaped tub and lots of room with 2 rooms. Plus 2 big screen LCD tvs on the wall, one of which you can watch from the hot tub, NICE!! Fridge in room, though we noticed it too late to take advantage of it as it was behind a door in one of the furniture pieces. Dehumidifier in the room was really nice considering the hot tub probably gets things a bit damp. The only thing missing was a microwave, but you can use the one down in the breakfast area. Definitely recommend this one as the rate was quite reasonable as well.

We stayed one night and had a beautiful newly remodeled room. The new furntiture was beautiful. The bed was comfortable and also new. The breakfast was also one of the best I have seen. There was no orange juice, but great otherwise! I would definitely stay there again.

Stayed at the Quality Inn and Suites based on reviews on Trip Advisor. Was very dissappointed in the rooms. Requested non-smoking (2 rooms). As soon as both rooms (connecting) were unlocked you could smell smoke from doorway. Went immediately to front desk and requested different rooms. The employee was very nice and changed out rooms. However, the second set of rooms, while not smelling of smoke, did have a strong unpleasant smell. We did keep these rooms, hoping the smell would decrease with air conditioning turned on. Unfortunately, smell never went away. The couch had stains on the cushion, amoire was scratched in several places, and even splintered at bottom of unit. The caulk around tub had quite a bit of mildew. Entire room was not very clean. Three positives: staff was friendly, hot breakfast was pretty good, and location was convenient to downtown. I do not recommend this hotel.
