Verified Reviews of University Quality Inn

Below are the verified reviews from guests that we have booked recently:
"Room was freezing and it took nearly five mins to get hot water."
Overall Score3.0/ 5
The front desk staff was friendly and they like dogs. They also gave us a free toothbrush and shower cap we forgot. But the room was so cold we had to leave the air off all night. The control says the temperature is the same for all rooms and can't be individually set. Room smelled of smoke even they smoking is not allowed. Water took nearly five minutes before it got warm enough for a bath.

"Clean and comfortable, but a long wait for hot water."
Overall Score4.0/ 5
It took four minutes of letting the hot water faucet run before it got warm enough for a shower. But the staff was very nice and gave us a free toothbrush and shower cap.

"The bed was very hard. The whole place needs upgraded."
Overall Score3.0/ 5
The staff was very nice. But the entire place needs to be upgraded.The bed was very hard and it was odd to be in a building that was once an open layout then covered. Renovating the building would bring in more guests. You have a nice staff now work on the building!I did appreciate the stay at a low rate. In my opinion,if you renovate and upgrade your hotel with keeping the rate lower than your competitors and show off your renovation,your business will pick up dramatically.

"Not Clean"
Overall Score1.0/ 5
The room was not clean, or the bathroom. Hair in the bathtub, piss on the toilet. Floor was not vacuumed. The bed had bedbugs, so I couldn't sleep at all. When I talked to the front desk they were very rude and disrespectful. I checked out the next morning and didn't stay the full time. The front desk lady said good luck getting your money back. The manager was not there to help with anything.

"Great Stay"
Overall Score4.0/ 5
When we arrived our room was very warm, even with the heater turned off. The attendant on duty that night was very helpful. He provided us with a couple of fans. Thank you so much that was so helpful! The hotel was very clean and the breakfast was very good. We did not use the pool but looked as if other guests were having a good time. The indoor courtyard is very spacious and comfortable. The hotel is located on a busy one way street and parking is OK, I would not recommend if you are hauling a trailer or have a large rig. Our overall experience was very good and would stay again if in the area.
