Pros: Breakfast....

No drinking water. Water fountain had bad tasting water. No access to computer to print boarding passes. Pool is shared with another hotel and a long ways to walk to it.

Not Comfortable

Pros: Breakfast was good and other staff members were friendly. Plenty of news papers and magazines.
Cons: LOT's of things to include the attitude of some of the staff.
Location: There were none or none mentioned. You had to travel out to see and enjoy things.
There was a pricing change and they tried to get me to pay for. I had already pre-paid for 4 days and when I asked for my money back, they let me go ahead with my room. Pool was too far away and shared with another hotel. No bottled water, only a water fountain that wasn't working well. No place to print out boarding passes or anything else, Just a stand alone computer. I asked this lady how to get to Wal-Mart and she said just make a right and go straight and you will see the sign. I drove about 10 miles and did not see the sign. Needless to say, I will never stay there again.

Pros: The rooms were clean and well kept. The beds were comfortable and the location worked well for us.
Cons: The hotel manager had to share her allegiance with a neighboring hotel which meant she wasn't always on site when you needed her.
Location: We visited the Devil's Milhopper Sinkhole, the Butterfly Exhibit and the Florida Museum.

Nice Overnight Stay

Posted Oct 3, 2016
Pros: The bed was good and the readily available wi-fi in the room was useful for my needs this trip.
Cons: I had no needs that were not met. This is not a five-star hotel, but there are many times I do not need the facilities such hotels offer.
Location: There is a restaurant in front of the hotel that appears to offer breakfast and lunch. A gas station is available as well.
My stay was a success. I was attending an event at a different hotel in town. This Quality Inn is conveniently near Interstate 75. The breakfast was ample for the situation.

Hotel was OK. The night clerk wasn't sure how to do anything but check me in. When I was leaving, I spilled some orange juice in the rental car that I was in and I wanted to get it cleaned up in a hurry, before it stained the seats. I asked if I could use some towels or a washcloth to quickly clean it up. The clerk was more concerned getting my room number and adding it to my bill, than helping me. I never got any help or towels. I eventually went into the breakfast area and grabbed a handful of napkins and a cup of hot water and did the best I could. I was clearly a paying customer, as I had just checked out with the same clerk a few minutes before. I clearly had no intention of stealing the towels and was simply trying to take care of an urgent matter. If a customer has an immediate concern, service to the customer should come first.
