This is not your typical Quality Inn, it was another motel and the chain bought it. The rooms are extremely tired, mine had copious amounts of paint peeling off the wall in the shower. The room smelled like smoke (due to a shared ventilation system) and it was not a room I would choose to spend any time at all in. Fortunately I only need a room for a night, and all I did was sleep. The bed was comfortable. Breakfast was nothing but coffee and stale bread, along with a few frozen mini muffins. There is a Starbucks down the road....plan to use it!

Room Tip: I was on the second floor, it was quiet enough

When I pulled into the lot, my instinct was not to even set foot inside yet I had a reservation and the cancellation period had passed...The motel is first not a hotel at all! It is so run down with peeling paint and overgrown "grass" Weeds were plentiful, rising 16 inches from the ground and surrounding the entire footprint of the building.

I asked to view the room only because I felt obligated to fully view the facility since I had a reservation. The room was dark, and as soon as I opened the door I could smell the musty smokey dirty air without even stepping inside.

This hotel is so run down it doesn't deserve a branded identity - Its in a very poor state of disrepair, is filthy and smelly and certainly not a safe place. I guess it reminds me of the room-by -the- hour places shown in movies.

Nice comfortable room. Cleary the room had been redone completely recently very modern décor and furnishings everything looked new. I like the granite slabs surround shower.
The building from the outside does not say much but it’s clean and freshly painted.
The hotel is located on a very busy street with lots of stores restaurant and shopping all with in walking distant.
This hotel is nice for a 1 or 2 night stay if you are looking to save $, planning to be exploring all day and just need a good clean place to rest.

Room Tip: Ask for a room away from the street.

The room was of a very good size and very clean.

The beds were new and comfortable.

All appliances worked perfectly and it was very quiet.

The decor excellent and the breakfast was over the top.

It has been recently renovated and they did a great job.


For this very popular area the price is very attractive too.

109. per night so you save at least 50.

Room Tip: The are 12 newer units with indoor security and are nicer than the rest. all granite tile in bathro...

Absolutely the worst Quality Hotel in America. I can't even begin. Stay away at all costs. Dirty dated rude management. It had it all. Yuck!!!! Bathroom a nightmare, toilet didn't work right. And worst of all the manager gave me a hard time about switching rooms. First room had a stench.

Stayed here w Dad and brother while on a motorcycle trip. The outside is rough. Weeds in the landscaping, chipped paint, non-working lights. But they had a room & we were tired. Plus, the cost is about 60% of the other hotels in the area.

The room had new paint, carpet, and furniture. The bathroom had new granite counters and shower surround, as well as new faucets and toilet. Interestingly, the globes were missing from the vanity light fixture. Odd.

The shower did spit some brown water when first on - but it cleared immediately.

The room definitely was nice and terribly juxtaposed to the exterior. To make this review even more difficult - Alex the owner came up to introduce himself. Very nice man. He inquired about our motorcycles - and was particularly intrigued by my Dad's trike. Before you knew it Dad was driving Alex around the parking lot!

So here's my thought: make a reservation - but ask for a renovated room. Close your eyes as you walk from your car to your room (quite a trick, I know!). Open your eyes in your room and enjoy your stay at Alex's hotel.

Until the exterior is upgraded I just can't give this hotel a higher rating.

What a delightful surprise! This Quality Inn is focused on the customer. All the staff are welcoming and helpful. It's in a great location. Nice neat and clean room bathroom was so clean I don't mind to eat my food in that. Would like to stay here again and recommend to my friends to.

Room Tip: New wing rooms
