Quality Inn adds automated doors

Staff at Sequim’s Quality Inn & Suites, 134 River Road, recently celebrated the installation of new automated doors.

Ms. Wheelchair Washington Stacie Lee was on hand to cut the ribbon for the facility.

“Thank you for realizing how important this is and the impact it makes for all of us by just making life one more door easier for us,” she said.

General Manager Nancy Merrigan said they needed this improvement for all their guests and their delivery truck drivers love the addition too.

“We’re just glad to do our part to make everyone’s life a little easier,” said hotel owner Bret Wirta.

For her support, Lee was awarded $100 to the Ms. Wheelchair Washington Fund.

Sequim Quality Inn & Suites is a 2018 Platinum Award-Winning hotel. It opened in 2006 and can be reached at 360-683-2800.
