"They were friendly behind the desk but I was disappointed they didn't give me a corporate rate even though I was passing through on business. Location was good for me with a rig and the bed was comfortable. The water was dirty looking."
Hotel review by guest is Negative
Verified Guest from Fergus, ON CA rated Quality Inn and Conference Centre 2 out of 10 on July 22, 2012 Verified Guest Hotel Review

"Avoid this place"
"A very poor level of service. Asked for non-smoking room and got one that smelled of fresh smoke. Snake in the room! Broken bathroom fan sounded like a Messerschmidt. Just go somewhere else. They clearly are coasting on the fact that most people who book here have limited choices in accommodation."

"It's overall acceptable but could be better, the food was average to poor and the parking is free but incovenient. I didn't consider the room clean but the price is right."
