In looking at some of the many hotel reviews, I notice that many travelers leave scathing reviews for what they consider to be major problems - e.g., a hair on the bed, a cobweb in the corner of the bathroom, etc. If you want an absolute five-star experience, be prepared to pay. If you want a comfortable, fairly inexpensive room for the eight hours you'll be sleeping, give this place a try. It's not a luxury hotel, but I had a good experience.
I got a king bed suite, and the room was huge. The bathroom, in fact, was the largest bathroom I've ever had in any of my hotel stays.
I did have an issue with my keycard becoming demagnetized. However, Quality Inn turned a negative into a positive. Within minutes of the call to the front desk, the manager was at my door. It ended up that the battery pack inside the lock had gone dead. This was not anything anyone could have anticipated. The prompt and friendly service which speedily took care of this problem was impressive. The manager gave me her card, and I wish I would have kept it so I could mention her name here. It was Tuesday, July 29 around 5:00 p.m.
One hint, from the hours of 4 p.m. to 7 p.m., forget about making a left turn out of the hotel. The main drag becomes like a parking lot due to the sparse placement of traffic lights. If you need to go back into town, just take a right and turn around at the next traffic light. It's so much easier than trying to wait for a break in four lanes of traffic.
