We stayed here because numerous other hotels south of here were sold out and we were SO tired that any bed would have been welcome. The lobby and other public areas were very run-down and dirty, so we were apprehensive about what our room would be like. While it was stuffy and spartan it did appear to be clean. I left the window open all night to get some fresh air. The bed was surprisingly comfortable and the shower worked well, so everything else was gravy.
We went into the "restaurant" to try and get something to eat (it was also very run down and dirty) and wound up sitting at the bar so that we could get service. It quickly became obvious that the girl behind the bar had no experience in that capacity, and seemed to have been pressed into service at the last minute. We actually felt bad for her, as she was trying to do a job she was untrained for. The menu selections were extremely limited but the food was acceptable. I had to leave after one or two bites because the stuffy, smelly atmosphere brought on a migraine headache. My husband stayed to finish his meal and overtipped the bartender out of pity.
To call this place "Quality" anything is a crime, and the chain that owns it should be ashamed.
