This hotel was cheap, $50-something, but even for that price it is a dump. The room was very small and shabby. The bed was OK; pillows were lumpy; bedding was very thin; no place to sit besides on bed; some sticky substance on corner of TV stand; globs of soap in bottom of tub by the drain; the worst thing...

My dog was in the small animal hospital, so i needed to be here a couple days. The price looked good at this motel so i checked it out. It is great the rooms are clean, it has a fridge, microwave, and hairdryer. For the cost and nice room this place is five star.

It was storming out and sidewalk and parking lot very slippery. Told the check,in clerk and the night clerk that it would be a good idea to put some salt down. The next morning when we left still not done and I slipped on ice. (Wasn't hurt) very disappointed that the safety of quest wasn't considered.

Was in town for business the place appeared to be nice and clean. The biggest issues were the beds were very hard and not comfortable, the smoke detector was missing from the room, and the internet had a very weak signal. Then there was the breakfast, which left a lot to be desired.
