When you tell them your sink is stopped up, you'd expect someone to come fix the issue within 12 hours, nope. So we were moved to another room with a lousy shower and the heater didn't heat, it blew cool air. The hallways are not heated either, makes for a cold walk to the breakfast area (not heated either). Room...

I was very concerned after reading all of the negative comments about this hotel. My wife is very partictular about where she stays, so I tried to warn her that we might need to turn around and walk out once we saw it. Yes, the outside looks bad and there were a couple of guys standing by the door that...

My work set me up here for a night. My car is the only one in a dimly lit pothole filled lot. My room has no microwave or fridge, 2 burnt out lights, and NO hot water. Half the rooms heaters are broken (according to management).

Stayed here while on business. My experience started by navigating past the huge pot holes in the parking lot. In the lobby I noticed the carpeting appeared to need to be cleaned. When I arrived in my room, the carpeting appeared a little newer but had obvious coffee stains. The tile in the shower showed mildew between the tile and...

This was a late night stop when we couldn't drive any farther. Usually I always check the reviews and I learned my lesson. This place was just disgusting. The smell of mildew was overpowering the minute you walked in. The 6 terminix roach traps in plain sight in the room left me with that creepy crawly feeling all night long....

We stayed here when we played at the Akron Irish Culteral Fest. Pretty beat hotel, compared to other Quality Inns we've used on tour. The windows had weird, gross looking fog caked on them. The outdoor pool was drained - in September. A little early in the year? No fitness room, no guest laundry. We felt isolated without these amenities...

We chose this hotel because it was inexpensive and, since we were there on business, we knew we would only be in the room for a few hours to sleep. The room smelled bad, there was hair in the tub, we had to wear shoes at all times because we didn't want any part of our body touching the carpeting....

I have been staying here about once a week for the last year. Stewart and Nikki at the front desk are always very friendly and helpful. I have never had any issues here and always have a great stay. I have used the internet without any issues, the pool is very nice clean and inviting. Maintenance seems to be work...

When I got there after check-in my room, which has been reserved for 2 nights for MONTHS wasn't clean, it was apparent what the room had been used for prior as they left a package on the bed which was appalling and embarrassing.
