Quite frankly this hotel has a real noise problem, mostly due to the poor design and terrible acoustics of the property. Frankly the sound seems to reverberate in the corridors and there is quite a bit of noise both from within the hotel and from the neighborhood in general. There is a club on the first floor that was quite...

I have stayed at this hotel every summer as a park and fly customer.. I have watched this hotel go through some major construction and renovation and the rooms are nice and comfortable. In the past there have been problems with transportation to and from the airport BUT this time was very different. When the shuttle was not notified of...

We did a stay one night and park for 11 days. Rate was very good, or room was clean, quiet and the bed comfortable. The staff was friendly, including paying most of the cost for a cab to the airport since the shuttle wasn't running at the time we needed. When we returned, same thing.

We always book only hotels with shuttle service and per their info, they had one and per Hotwire, they were on their 3 stars and above list - total, outright lies NO shuttle for late-night travelers, and don't expect one during the day either. According to the management, they have no driver, no van. Bathrooms looked like they hadn't been...

Treat this hotel like you would a diseased dog foaming at the mouth... Run in the opposite direction and don't look back. There isn't enough Purell in the world to take away the dirty feeling... The coffee maker is next to the toilet, need I say more?

Read the other reviews and you can see how awful this place is. There is one thing that was overlooked by the other reviews: the parking situation. The hotel has 150 rooms. Yet, it only has 75 parking spots. Plus, anyone who goes to the dive bar connected to the hotel gets to park at the hotel for free. Here...

Pros: Staff helpful enough (got us a crib), Navy Exchange across the street. Cons: Parking fee, no breakfast, less than pleasant atmosphere. I had reservations at the Holiday Inn nearby, but the reservations fell through. Had my agent book the next closest hotel with availability. Should have inspected the room before checking in, because I would have passed on this...

Great place to take a hooker or smoke crack, but not for family. Room smelled like sweat, mold in shower, stains on rug,no bay view and the free parking, microwave and fridge were another 27$/night, best western was 125 a night, so it worked out cheaper then 107+27. Even the address wasnt on nitibz it was on the side of...

1. The Hotel's primary business is their bar and they could care less about the hotel guests. 2. Parking is horrible. Had to park blocks away and carry my luggage. The parking for the hotel is completely consumed by bar patrons. Including the underground parking that is reserved for hotel guests only. They do not enforce the parking because the...

This Quality Inn is not so bad, with the qualifier that if you're going to stay here, you should probably be a laid-back, broke college student. It certainly had everything my boyfriend and I needed on our trip: a hot tub (though small), clean beds, friendly staff. Yes, it's true that it's a little dingy, and yes, there is loud...
