“Good value hotel”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 May 2014

The hotel is conveniently located right off I-195. It is right on the river which makes for a nice view. The rooms are clean and comfortable. A full buffet breakfast was included in the room rate. It was good. The indoor pool was very nice too. There is a nice lawn to walk on with chairs to sit outside and look at the river. Not much in the way of eateries around. The hotel does need some upgrading. Carpets are a bit warm, etc. But the staff are nice and friendly and overall it is a nice place.

Room Tip: Request a riverside room in the first building. All rooms enter from the inside.

I walked into the hotel to see dirty furniture and carpet.MY first thought was " I hope my room doesn't look like this"needless to say my room looked worst than that!Dirty carpet,dirty filthy tub,mildew ceiling ,web dirt in ceiling corners,piles of dust on sink ,yellow stains on linen and the smell of the room was horrible!We had to buy cleaning supplies to clean the area.I asked for more towels and was told they only had one left!I can't understand how a hotel charges 5 star prices while the sleeping environment is a 1 star! Bug on bed and towel.Also staff appearance need improvements.

Chose hotel for the 2 queen beds. Front desk very unfriendly on arrival. Handed us room keys and pointed to room. That's it! Room in need of maintenance. Peeling paint and wallpaper. Heard movements of everyone from walking above to what sounded like furniture or linen carts being rearranged all night

I am on the road alot as I am a truck driver, and ive stayed at this hotel several times, and every time I stay there there is always something wrong with it. Either they need to know how to clean everything or maybe put a stop to as who stays(long periods) of time there. I walked into the lobby 2 days ago and saw two couples that looked like they had no jobs and living on welfare. Too my surprise, I found out that this hotel allows individuals to rent rooms for long periods of time(kinda like an apartment), and the USA government pays the hotel the money for these individuals to stay there. Those types of people bring issues,tidiness problems and most of all crime and drugs to the hotel. In my room in the bathroom this time I noticed two used syringes(ones used for crack or whatever drug those chose) laying there on the ground inside a makeshift cover for the sink. There was also used pillowcases on a chair. Other stays ive encountered build up of dust, cigarette burns on bedding and lamps, shades broken, decor falling apart or fixed very cheaply. Front desk staff (some of them) seem like they dont take there job seriously enough(on there personal phone texting while dealing with clients). And as far as management reimbursing my hotel room twice which is nice but correct the issue so you don't have to keep reimbursing people do too the lack of housekeeping. Once you walk through the front door you're greeted with old décor and somewhat friendly staff and then when you're on your way to your room the carpet in the hallway is dirty and needs to be replaced . I will never return to this location until they revamped the whole entire building they need to spend more money on actual necessities such as up to date bedding and furniture and carpet and their bathrooms all fixtures and lighting. They say that they have updated their bedding but that is not sufficient the bedding they have in there is old. If you're really thinking about staying anywhere else in that area I would suggest driving 5 minutes off of Highway 6 to Swansea and go stay at the Holiday Inn Express your building clean quiet no pets and awesome service for almost the same price you would pay to stay at Quality Inn.

I had to stay here for one night, I guess I got what I paid for, but I thought at $80/ night it would be a little nicer or cleaner even. The room was so dirty. There was a thick layer of dust on everything. The cover on my bed had a cigarette burn hole in it. The TV was from 20 years ago, the lamps on the walls were broken, and the A/C unit was so loud. The toilets must have been linked together because if anyone flushed, I heard it in my bathroom. I felt a little gross and I didn't even want to lay in the bed because of how dirty everything was. The ONLY thing was partially nice was my room had a sliding door that over looks the pond.. Other than that, I will never stay here again.

Room Tip: Ask if they have any rooms that have been updated. I stayed close to the back and it was disgusting...

Thank you for taking the time to post your review of the Quality Inn of Somerset. I noticed that the review was from your stay in March of 2013. I am pleased to inform you that we have purchased new bedding in addition to 32" flat screen televisions. To date, over 50% of the rooms have been completed and we are working dilligently to finish within the next couple of months. I can assure you that I will share your experience with the staff so that we can continue to make improvements through our continuous training efforts. We appreciate your comments regarding the balcony and the view of the water; many guests request these rooms due to the great views and serenity.

The staff was very nice and helpful. The warm complimentary brekfast was actually quite good..
The room was a bit dated and worn, and could do with a good cleaning. Dust and stains around the hole room. The bath had a jacuzzi but we did not try it.

We are seniors who have driven back & forth to CA & FL several times in the last few years, always staying in Choice Hotels - of which this motel is a member - so we have quite a large base of examples to draw on for comparison. I would rate this one in the top third of the list. We stayed one night in an accessible, non-smoking room on the ground floor with patio & river view & the charge was about $77. The river view was peaceful but would have been more so if there had not been a freeway on one side & a rather busy local road on the other. The king bed was very comfortable, the room as clean as I've ever seen in this category of motel, & the service was very friendly & accommodating. There is an indoor pool which we didn't use but looked well kept. The heating, fridge, water pressure & coffee maker all worked fine. The breakfast selection was not very appetizing but had the basics. There are several restaurants nearby. The motel itself is certainly not new but was, as far as we could tell, well kept up except for the side entranceway which could have used a good sweeping. To be fair, it was a windy day & there was a lot of traffic in that area so it would have been difficult to keep up with the litter tracked/blown in. All in all, we thought it was a good value for the money & convenient to just about everything you would need in the area.

Room Tip: Rooms on the west side have the best view of the river & a large yard for kids to run around in...
