“Needs Major Renovation”
Reviewed 30 December 2012

My family and I were driving through to NC and we decided to pull off of 81 and stay here for the night. I wouldn't stay at a Quality Inn again due to our experience for our 1 night stay. I ordered a cot b/c one of my kids was sick and didn't want the 2 of them sleeping in same bed. When we set up the cot, I pulled back the blanket and there were cigarette burn holes and stains. It was disgusting. Used our own blankets from our car.
The shower didn't work properly and the water was luke warm. The shower head was all rusted. The vent in the ceiling was hanging by 2 screws.
The breakfast could have been the highlight of our stay, but I needed hot water for my tea. One machine that gave me cold water, even though it was supposed to give hot water. The other jug that said Hot Water, was empty.

Room Tip: Travel down a few more exits and you will find better options for lodging.

I called the Qualiy Inn in Carlisle Pa to see if they had a restaurant and they said that they did. Upon arrival was told that they had Lounge which was smoking but we needed to go next door to the diner for food. I was upset about the smoking policy and wanted to cancel my reservation but because I had used reward point they could not do so. The Front Desk Clerk was not in the least helpful and indicated that PA is a dry state and that was so no one would drink and drive. She told me that only Olive Garden and Applebees served food and alcohol and made me out to be someone that had a drinking problem. After speaking with a friend that lives in Boiling Spring she told me that as long as a restaurant has a liquior license you can get food and drink. I would not recommend this place. I have worked in the Inn Business and would have never treated a guest like this. I will say that they had an excellent breakfast buffet and the hotel was clean but needs some renovation in the bathroom as the ceiling was stained and had some mildew.

Room is clean. Staff is very friendly. I stay here because I have a car trailer and truck and they have easy access parking. Great breakfast. All rooms have either a blacony or a patio for fresh air. Subway next store and hotel has a bar. Not the Ritz Carlton, but its safe and clean and friendly staff

Dear Guest,

Thanks for choosing the Quality Inn during your recent visit to our area.

We appreciate you for the review and also take it seriously towards improvement.

It is heartening to note that you liked the location and also for appreciating the bar, the food and parking area.

Your other observations related to the smell of smoke in non smoking rooms have been taken care of and you shall not experience again.

We hope that you will surely choose the La Quinta once again and have a new experience.

Sincerely,
Hotel Manager.

We spent a night here for Corvette Carlisle when prices were very high all over town. The room was clean, but definitely in need of updating and renovation. The linens were bare and I requested newer pillow cases. There were no pillow covers between the old pillows and the case which was thread bare and discolored. The newer ones requested were much better. Sheets were very thin. The towels were very thin but the newer ones they brought were much better.
I noticed the dresser drawers don't close and the paint was chipped in the bathroom and rusted. It was OK for a night but I recommend wearing flip flops in the room.
The breakfast was fairly good, but ran out of danish. Eggs were hard. They had a variety of things for breakfast, so really can't complain, but by 9:30, food was not very fresh.

Room Tip: Request newer linens if those you get are thin and stained.

I stayed here for 2 days-First impression walking into the room was that it had not been updated in 20 + years- The bedspreads were a mustard color and overall room looked dingy. The bathroom had a stain on the floor from the sink leaking,shower grout was missing,cracked or black stained and no exhaust fan. The soda machines were not properly stocked and when you pushed the button for what you wanted something different came out. With this being said- The room was not worth the money we paid for it- The Motel 6 down the road was only $75/ night and from what my friends tell me was nicer then the Quality Inn. The only plus side to my stay is that the 2 ladies who worked the front desk were very nice & as helpful as they could be.

Pluses: Eggs and sausages included in the hot breakfast; WiFi works well; inner first-floor rooms face the pool; easy access from I-76; large convenience store in the gas station next door; no complaints about the bed; I like the second sink just outside the bathroom; washer/dryer available for guests to use.

Minuses: Decor tired and a little stained; "newly redecorated" may refer to the big TVs in each room.

Overall good value
