To assist readers, I break down my hotel reviews into different categories. I rate each on a scale of 1 to 5. Hope it helps.
Customer Service: 4/5
The desk clerk who checked me was pretty low key in her greeting, but she took care of me quickly and answered my questions.
This property was definitely above average for a Quality Inn, and in its hotel class. The lobby and dining area were not vibrant, but certainly comfortable. The hotel grounds, inside and out, were maintained and well-lit.
The first thing I noticed about my room was a refreshing whiff of fresh citrus. Rooms in this hotel class tend to smell a tiny bit musty to downright funky so this was a nice treat. The walls, window treatments, and bedding sported a benign yellow and orange autumnal theme. Though decorated with run-of-the-mill landscape prints, my room was very clean, free of carpet stains and obvious wall scuffs.
Functions, Access, Noise: 4/5
My room came with a new Frigidaire A/C unit that nicely and quietly regulated the temperature. There weren’t any reachable wall outlets but there were enough built into the lamp bases to handle my devices. The TV, fridge, and microwave also appeared to be brand new. Unfortunately, the TV picture was below average and the remote’s channel guide function did not work.
Cell phone coverage is in Extended LTE mode in this area, but the hotel’s wifi offered a solid signal.
There is sufficient parking near the entrance. This hotel does have an elevator.
I heard no outside street noise bleeding through my window.
Sleep Quality: 4.5/5
On top of my bed was a little tent highlighting its features: a “premium mattress, 200 thread count linens, a generous supply of fluffy pillows, and a soft, plush blanket.” The mattress was a true firm, pretty rare to find in any hotel. I like a medium-firm, but it was not uncomfortable. You may find comfier pillows and softer linens at Comfort Inns, but this bed was about as good as I’ve had at this Choice Hotels class.
Very spacious, and it wasn’t even a wheelchair-accessible unit. It appeared to have a brand new shower/bath module. The showerhead delivered nice pressure. The big knock on my bathroom was the condition of the tile and grout, which were noticeably cracked, crumbled and stained in spots. Also, the overhead mirror light wasn’t quite enough to brighten the space.
A surprisingly inviting indoor pool and jacuzzi. Much better than I expect to see at a two-star hotel. Tucked inside the pool area is a little fitness room – just the basics: an elliptical, treadmill, bench, and a few dumbbells. Continental breakfast was the standard budget hotel fare. If you don’t mind a short drive, the hotel is close to an IHOP, a cineplex, and strip malls. If you want a real treat, take a spin over to Miss Addie’s at 821 West Broadway, the place to go in Muskogee for comfort food.
This was a very good Quality Inn. I spent $100 for the night, including tax. I would rank the value even higher, but I’ve stayed at other hotels for less that reached the same bar, or rose above it.
Total score: 28.5/35
