There is no business center, pool was closed, fitness center was closed, elevator out of order, coffee pot in the lobby was sitting in the floor. Breakfast was never ready on time so I can't comment as to the quality. Smoke detector, hair dryer and iron missing from the room. Looks like they have been "renovating" for some time. I... More

What a disappointment! The rate we were charged was incorrect, the place was under construction making entry even more difficult and then when we get to the room we find a condom wrapper laying on the floor. We've stayed in a lot of Quality Inn & Suites before but they really took the quality out of this stay.
