"Lack of Quality Inn" is more like it. First off, it's a motel, all the rooms open to the outside (parking lot). Walls were thin as paper, neighbor had a dog in their room that barked all night. People sitting outside their rooms drinking and talking. Sheets had stains on them. The room was on par with a Motel 6. Hotel requires you to wear a mask at check in but the clerk behind the plexiglass wasn't wearing one. Worst part was the price of the room well exceeded the value. I will never stay here again.

The hotel was very dirty. It did not give a safe feeling. I was booking this for a friend and he had to clean his own room. We paid over 80 dollars per night and it was not worth the quality they advertised. They did not include breakfast or accommodations due to covid. We ended up spending more money to compensate

Disliked: Cleanliness, amenities, property conditions & facilities
I went through Expedia to book a room for one night. A room with a king bed cost $150. For that price, I expected more than I received. The room was very basic. The bed was extremely firm and the pillows were low quality. The room, the shower and bathroom in particular, was not very clean. Breakfast was also very basic. The ratings and the description online really oversold the hotel experience.
