“Disappointing service”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 October 2013

Chose this motel over a cheaper one in town because it had breakfast and pool. Could not use the pool unless you wanted to go in green water. Yes it was October--but temps were in 90s during our 3-day stay there. Billboard advertised "enjoy our hot and healthy breakfast." Breakfast consisted of pre-packaged pastries, apple or banana (banana only if you got there early), coffee or joice. Biscuits and gravy were offered, but did not look appetizing. So it would have been better if we stayed at cheaper motel with no pool or breakfast. We had to go to Dollar General store next door for some duct tape to place around door. Was 2" gap at bottom of door and bugs were coming in. Next to last day there (while we were gone during the day) they patched parking lot and roped it off near our door in prep for new asphalt lay next day. Could not park near our door (no one informed us before). Glad we left next day so didn't have to smell that in our room. Desk clerks were not helpful at all. AC ran really loud all the time and did not cool room to satisfaction (it was in the 90's remember).

3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 September 2013

Douglas was an excellent stopping off point from our non highway trip back to FL from western SC. Douglas has hotels, restaurants, stores and gas stations which were all welcome after a full day on the road. We picked the Quality Inn because the price was right and the property had a pool. The hotel is very dated. There are no sprinklers in the room.
The pool was large, but it is painted green and until closely inspected, it appears to have green water...it doesn't, and the pool is very clean, but the appearance from afar may put off people. The room was large enough for the two of us, and it was clean except for a few carpet stains. We wanted a non smoking room, and it did not smell of smoke! The bed was comfortable and clean. The bathroom was clean. The surroundings were quiet, and the hotel was conveniently located. The flat screen TV had a lot of channels. There were a couple of negatives. The air conditioner was VERY loud (I am used to central air which you generally do not hear). The breakfast was......free....but that is all I can say positively. The hot food was gone by the time we arrived at 8:30 AM. The manager was nice enough to bring out some boiled eggs from the kitchen for me. The family who walked in with us chose to go out for breakfast, as there was only cereal, toast, bagels, pastry & a little fruit. Our driving day was short, so we were able to find enough to sustain us until we got home in 4 hours. If our driving day was to be longer, we would have opted to eat out for breakfast.

Room Tip: The room was only $54 a night so the value & cleanliness were a good value. The pool is clean!

We found our two night stay at this inn to be as positive as our last report in 2011. A great value, clean, comfortable, friendly and family safe. If you are looking for a good nights rest at a fair price you will find it here.

Needs a lot of upgrades but very clean. Pool is nice and big. Convenient to lots of restaurants. Hotel staff friendly and professional! Breakfast was average. There were not boiled eggs or yogurt, the containers were empty both mornings. Would stay again.

Yes, for the price ($56) this was a good deal. Yes it needs some updating but it worked for us with free breakfast. We rode our motorcycles from Daytona Beach Fl. (Hwy 100 to 441 to Franklin NC. hwy 28 to Fontana Village) and this was on the way. The other part of our group (we got a late start) was 60 miles north paying $98 per night with a discount. The room was clean, with a fridge, flat screen tv, huge king size bed and we were allowed to park our bikes under the breeze way (out of the way of course). The breakfast was free but no frills, get the biskets and gravey that is your best bet. YES I rate this a Very good based on it being clean, and low budget and a friendly staff.

Room Tip: Good low budget for the money; after all we only stayed 8 hours if that.
