I don't know what more I can say about this hotel other than do not stay here. I read the reviews from other people before I went and they made it seem okay but for me I was not comfortable at this hotel at all. I was there on a business trip and the first thing that came to mind...

Management takes no pride in care in maintenance of the hotel. Screw holes in the walls all over where fixtures were removed. Some places they didn't even remove brackets from old futures. Just left them on the wall. Sloppy Dry wall patches as big as me. One patch looked like they covered the hole with duck tape then painted over...

There is paint splatters everywhere, in the bathroom, on the lamp! It's very run down. They have a...

In Houston for work. Booked this hotel because it had smoking rooms and stayed 2 nights. I am not a picky person when it comes to hotel rooms but this one got to me. If you are assigned room 603 - run away as fast as you can. 603 had about a three foot diameter round white plaster circle covering...

We stayed at this location in order to complete a Choice Hotel promo. HUGE MISTAKE! This hotel is very run down, even in the midst of renovations. The old furniture is on the guest floors outside the elevators, which is a safety hazard. There are many truckers that stay at this hotel and they take over the small breakfast area....

My co-worker and I had been on opposite ends of the Motel 6 next door and both found bugs in our bed when we finally turned in for the night. So after checking out there I was not wanting to go too far so I just walked across the parking lots and checked in at the Quality Inn. This place...

We stayed here a week on a business trip and I am still in shock at what a fabulous hotel this is considering the very low price. The rooms are large, clean and new.
