Average place to stay. Stayed here 3 days. Had to remind cleaning staff to clean our room. One day it was not cleaned at all. We would leave in the morning and return around 3:30pm. Hotel management didn't offer any sort of discount on room cost. Management was courteous and front desk personnel were very friendly.

This hotel is better than most La Quintas. It is a smoke-free property, meaning there is no foul odor from another floor or room. The breakfast has more protien than other hotels. Our rooms were clean and the shower had good water pressure. It was a suite, so the room was spacious. The sofa and carpet are getting close to... More

This is a good hotel with a very friendly staff that seem to get along well together. The room was quiet and clean. Breakfast was the expected plus waffle maker, eggs & sausage, and hard boiled eggs. It has basic amenities for a business traveler.

4G doesn't penetrate the building so you have to sign on to their internet and watch a video EVERY TIME your computer falls asleep or you use and app on your phone. Doesn't sound like much but doing business in this hotel takes twice as long and it is to further profit from the guests, not to serve the guests.... More

I apologize for the problems you experienced with the hotel's WIFI. I understand that internet access is vital to doing work away from the office in this day and age. You do not say whether you spoke with hotel staff about the issue you were having connecting to the internet. There is a way that our WIFI provider can read... More

Two dogs barking in room after owners leave for night-on-the- town. This was complemented by another one further down the hall. Operator said she called the room and left a message, Since dogs always mark their space, made us wonder how many times our carpet had been marked. Breakfast atmosphere would have been better if we had blinders on. Best... More

Very comfortable, clean, and sufficient. Daytime staff is excellent! A very well kept property. Not far from several attractions, malls or restaurants. The front desk staff and housekeeping go above and beyond to make sure you are well satisfied and assure you a comfortable stay. We will definitely be staying with them again in the future.

Great service and staff-too much noise in hallways at night and early morning by children allowed to run down floors yelling and slamming doors. Rooms very clean and comfortable, damage to door and curtains from prior stay not repaired before our stay.
