"Look No Further for Service, Comfort and Value"
I was greeted at the Front Desk very cordially. The man not only inquired how to pronounce my name correctly, but he remembered it when I checked out the next day. Our room was huge and outfitted with everything we possibly could need: two queen beds, desk and office chair, table and two arm chairs, TV, microwave and refrigerator. Some finishes were a little worn, but everything was clean and comfortable. And there was plenty of light for reading -- what a treat! Breakfast the next morning was excellent; it surpassed the offerings of most higher-priced chains. It is far more than the "continental" breakfast we expected and included scrambled and hard-boiled eggs, sausage and sausage gravy, waffles and yogurt in addition to a variety of hot and cold cereal, fruit, bread and beverages. The hours for breakfast are extended, too, starting at 5:30 am -- a big help to travelers who must be on their way early. It is kept well-stocked by an attendant who was friendly and helpful. To find such nice staff, large, comfortable rooms and delicious breakfast buffet at such a reasonable price was a delightful surprise. We don't come to Rapids often, but we definitely know where we will be staying when we do!

"Nice Mid Range Hotel"
Facilities were well maintained, slightly dated but very clean. The breakfast was a little more substantial than the normal contential fare offered. They had scrambled eggs, bacon, sausage in addition to the normal fare. Pool was nice. Location is on the main shopping road, plenty of food options within a half mile. Attitude and helpfulness of the staff was excellent.

A welcoming front desk clerk. Clean, even if a bit outdated. Condition of pool and spa was only real big complaint--chipped paint, cracked, loosely tile, and--say it ain't so--was that fuzzy mold in the spa?

"Family friendly hotel"
Pros: Hotel room was comfortable and clean. 2 Queen beds were appreciated. Nice breakfast buffet with hot and cold variety of options. Staff was friendly and made effort to accommodate our needs. Cons: Pool area was dirty, clumps of hair on the pool deck and an unidentifiable cloth floating in the hot tub. No elevato.

"A Nice Little Find in the Wis. Rapids Area"
It's a nice hotel to stay a few nights in. The breakfast was fantastic, they've got quite the spread! Waffle maker, good doughnuts, bagels, scrambled eggs, sausage, cereal, fruit. The staff was always on it whenever something was about to run out. The pool is good, but the hot tub was way to hot. The room was comfortable and roomie, but the bed was a little to firm.

"not cool"
Was horrible. Only stayed a day of my 2 that were reserved. Vending machine sodas were expired. Pool was broken. Room was not very clean. It seemed we were the only ones there. We ended up with an extra kid for the night and instead of giving us a cot they wanted us to rent a second room. Told them we wouldnt rent another room for the kids as young as they were. Said we would just have to leave. They said they would refund our money but haven't seen a credit yet. And I would never rent a spare room for kids under 10...u nuts!!!

"Not much quality here"
I've stayed in Quality Inns before and they're usually pretty nice. Not so here. First, the whole hotel has a very musty smell and feel. The room was very dark and run-down. The carpets were old and dirty and the whole place had paint chipping everywhere. The pool area was ok but again, looked very old with cracks and paint chipping everywhere. The staff made an effort to keep up the breakfast, which was pretty good, but there weren't half enough tables for all the guests trying to eat on a Sunday morning. Wouldn't recommend it, especially for the hefty price. I thought there would at least be a fridge in the room but no. The only good thing was the location--near stores and restaurants so we could spend as little time in the room as possible.

"Excellent breakfast"
The room was not bad. The bed a little too firm for our liking and the pillows didn't work for us at all. But otherwise it was clean and quiet and we were satisfied with the room. It was close to everything we needed access to. The breakfast was fab! My husband loved the waffles. I don't know what they did to the eggs but I was all over those and I'm not normally an egg person. There was a nice selection of food and drink. And cherry jelly for the toast! I rarely see that so I was excited just for that.

"Too expensive for what you get"
The building was fine. The pool did not look inviting. The staff acted like they were put out by having to put down their cell to wait on me. Funny smell overall. While there are little ads all over about the quality of their beds, mine was uncomfortable & I did not sleep well at all.

"On main highway"
We checked in Christmas Eve. The staff was very efficient in checking us in. The hotel is a little dated but seemed very clean. The bed was comfortable. The bathroom was clean. The only complaint I have is that the heating & cooling fan was very loud. When the heat would kick on during the night, the fan would wake me up all night long.

"Hotel Room felt like Home"
What a great quiet relaxing hotel to spend the night in, between 2 full days of challenging golf. One night wasn't enough, I wanted to stay a week. The updated room was really spacious, more like a small apt..The king-sized bed was so comfy just like @ home. The room had a flat screen TV, fridge, microwave, radio, iron & board, hairdryer, you name it. The bathroom was updated w/granite, new tub & surround, etc. Shower was great too! The cleanliness was a 5 star & had no odors. Really good free hot continental breakfast that also had REAL orange juice. It's located on the main drag & close to shopping, etc & of course a super good authentic Italian Restaurant. We would stay here again & highly recommend it to others !

"Quality Inn"
We arrived close to midnight & the night staff was very friendly, lots of convienent parking. Room was surprisingly much larger than most chain hotels. Beds were comfy, bedding was soft and clean, lots of pillows (4 on each bed). Didn't hear the neighbors at all. While this hotel is older and nothing is modern or sophisticated, we were comfortable. The room wasn't super clean, but the important things were very clean (bathroom & bed) The breakfast far exceeded my expectations: waffles, toast, bagels, english muffins, pastries, cereal, yogurt, fresh fruit, hot scrambled eggs, sausage, a potato/sausage dish, sugar-free & regular syrup, hardboiled eggs and more. My only disappointments were that there weren't enough electrical outlets (none near the beds as the lamps were sconces hardwired, and many of the other outlets were controlled by a switch & it took us some time to figure how to plug in a cpap, phones, & a camera so that they worked/charged when lights were off). The pool area is small & smelled really chlorinated and needs a lot of paint & updating, but it was good enough to entertain our daughter. The location was convienent to restaurants with a Walgreens next door, & the residential area behind the hotel was quiet and nice. This hotel is not nice enough to please a snob who expects gorgeous luxury. But it is a great deal for average families who want the most for such a low price.
