The Quality Inn is up on a hill by itself, thus it is VERY quiet. The facility either is new or simply feels it. It is beautifully maintained. But the biggest kudos go to the staff, who were extremely helpful and friendly. I can't commend them highly enough.

Stayed one night on our way through. Nice staff, grounds looked good...but the room was dated. The Tub was fiberglass with permanent stains. The walls were thin enough to join the conversation in the next room. Bed was comfortable.
