Ashland, Pennsylvania
Reviewed 18 June 2015

We booked online and upon check in realized the room was far away so asked for a closer one. Ann at the desk said "well it's not like it's 10 miles away" and "for what you paid, that's where it is". We thought it was very rude. The woman at the desk the next morning was very helpful.

After a long day of driving and searching for a hotel, we stumbled upon the Quality Inn. Good thing because the price was right- the room was surprisingly nice and they even had a nice breakfast in a very nice public area. The desk clerk was friendly and overall- especially for the price- this was well worth it. If we...

We almost chose to go elsewhere to save a few bucks but decided that was just not right. You have to reward good service with repeat business. And we couldn't have made a better choice. We showed up a little before check-in time but that was not an issue for them. Check-in was expeditious and friendly. The room provided was...

This hotel provides the best location if you want to move around the larger Watertown area. For 55 USD a night this place is a steal as the property is recently renovated, the staff is really friendly, the rooms are clean (the fixtures n lights are old style), and they provide coffee, juice, and popcorn 24 hours in the lobby....

Hotel was clean, but could use some updating and interior decorating. Drapes worked, but did not hang properly and actually should be replaced. Staff was friendly and accommodating. Hotel grounds were poorly maintained. Decent accommodations for the price!

Hotel is conveniently located off the highway near restaurants and shopping. Room was clean, had all we we were looking for. Staff friendly and helpful. Breakfast was okay (probably can avoid the eggs but there's also waffles, bagels, toast, yogurt, cereal, etc) but very crowded. Not enough seats, it is served in the lobby. The all the time popcorn, coffee...

We usually stay with a competitor when we travel to Watertown, but last year we were disappointed, so this year we decided to try here. It is an older place, but has been upgraded. Most important, it's clean & quiet. Breakfast was good, not set up for couples, but great to meet fellow guests. Was really surprised when the front...

Normally I drive right past this location when I am visiting Watertown. I did not think I could afford it on my salesman's budget.

Larger room with heart-shaped whirlpool made it an agreeable stay. Sort of out of context, as most other guests that night were workers with their pick-up trucks. Breakfast was OK with scrambled (?) eggs a bit spongy. Location is best, if you want to do some shopping.
