We chose this hotel based on the "Quality Inn" name and pleasant stays at many other Sleep Inns, as a place to stay in during our east coast trip. We stayed their Saturday night Nov 29, 2008.
Ever see that commercial where the people are having trouble with their room, the window faces a junk yard? Well, they could have filmed that commercial at this Sleep Inn. We were given room 303, and it's on the side of the hotel that faces directly into an automobile junk yard. Cars piled up on each other.
Worse than that, starting around 1am and then all night long we kept hearing loud low pitched throbbing sounds. We turned off the air conditioner, refrigerator, microwave, and we unplugged the TV. The sound still came back, it would be quiet for a while than the low throbbing sound repeated.
I was so exhausted that I was able to sleep through this. My wife however was kept up all night long.
We could have switched rooms, and maybe we should have, but my wife didn't want to wake me up at 2am to move to a different room.
My wife wrote a note, the desk staff said that they'd give it to the manager and that she would contact us "tomorrow". It's been much longer than that and we have heard nothing from them.
Breakfast, was good as usual at a Sleep Inn: waffles you make yourself, bread you can toast, butter, or peanut butter & jam (as we do), cereal.
Price was a little high as Sleep Inns go.
Bottom line: if you need to stay overnight in a good quality reasonably priced hotel, then you (usually) can't go wrong with Sleep Inn. But, if you stay at the one in Jessup, MD, be sure to get a room that's facing away from the junkyard.
