Verified Guest from Calgary, AB CA rated Quality Hotel Airport South 5 out of 10 on February 02, 2013 Verified Guest Hotel Review

"The room I was in it was nosey at night due to traffic and the room needs to be redone like the t.v should be a flat screen cause all hotels have them now, it just looks better, and the blankets need to be better those fluffly new blankets. Over all the room needs to be updated. But the bathroom was fine it could just stay the same, just the rest needs a little up date. Also the fridge is good to have in the room. I also think the tables and chairs downstairs where you eat breakfast need to be updated just so it's more comfortable and inviting."

"Gym is off-premises. Gave me a street level room (you can wave to the pedestrains on Westminster Highway) and claimed that they were fully booked for the night. Breakfast area is tiny and food selection is limited. Needed to borrow a USB mouse for an hour (if I don't keep my word to return it on time, they can always charge against the $150) but claimed that they don't have one. Forced me to walk blocks to buy a USB mouse at a drugstore. La Quinta is in the same price range and my experience was far superior."

"We were only there for six hours."
"We were left with a very bad feeling toward this hotel when we were informed that we may be assessed $150.00 on our credit card for damage deposit and for booking online. We found this policy to be very offensive. We used many hotels in our travels throughout South America and Quality Inn Richmond was the only place we felt annimosity towards."

"What is good / what is bad?"
"A good hotel to stay a few nights in, if you are visiting the city and have things to do around town. A good place to be "at home, away from home". Clean, in good repair, but some rooms a bit noisy (the ones facing the street). Free parking and breakfast were appreciated. But don't count with entertainment, and other spectacular in-house amenities (shopping, lounge, restaurant, which anyways are out on the street in walking distance)."

"We stayed at this hotel a short time because we were in transit to Tokyo.We chose this hotel because they have a shuttle transportation from/to the airport- hotel.BUT we never were told that shuttle service has a fix schedule.So we arrived at Vancouver from Seattle by bus at 8.30pm and we found that there was no more shuttle service.We took a taxio and the driver misunderstood (??) the name of the hotel and took us to another Quality.It was 20 C$D.From there ,and thanks to the managerīs help, we had to call another taxi:18 C$D more."
