This La Quinta was just average when judged against other La Quinta hotels. One problem is there is no sign to tell you where to turn into the parking area. The room was cleans and comfortable, The breakfast was ordinary. the staff was quite friendly and welcoming.

Conveniently located by I-49. We like to stay here when kids soccer team/softball team have tournaments in town. Rooms are big & clean. Bathroom clean, but wish it had a vent to let steam escape. Large, secure pool is nice place for kids to hang out and plenty of seating for parents to relax and watch the kids. Front desk staff very helpful, but sometimes understaffed/busy/unable to locate. "OK" free breakfast buffet, but Cracker Barrel restaurant is located next to hotel. We've never experienced anything negative at this hotel and price is very decent for families, so we keep coming back. The only negative thing (that isn't any fault of the hotel) - located near RR tracks, with blaring trains late at night. BUT - this doesn't keep us from staying here. Great location when traveling with kids.

This La Quinta off U. S. Highway 49 is just north of the City. As one of the newe La Quinta's, it was very nice. None of the rooms face the highway, and for those like me who hate the highway noise, it's a goody!

Decor was lovely, and the help was friendly and nice

The location is good- close to the airport and within a 10 minute drive to downtown. The hotel had been redone in a modern/ contemporary decor. We booked a queen standard room. The size was adequate and bed was comfortable. The furniture had a stain (ouch) which did not make it appealing. The tub had stains in it as well. The manager knows how to be thrifty: the towels were very thin which took longer to dry oneself; the toilet paper was single ply- disintegrate as you use kind. The coffee in the lobby was watered down.
I think that $110.00 that I paid was too high of a price for what I got.

This place is a complete dump. It is very misleading because from the outside it appears modern, well kept, and clean. The inside of this place is filthy. The hallways are very hot and damp-always. The carpet looks terrible. You will have to wait at least 20 minutes if you want hot water to shower with in the evenings. I have given up before and just showered with cold water because I never could get any hot water at all. The air conditioning control units have been limited so the room temperature will never get below about 72 degrees which is too hot to sleep in. The rooms are filthy and seem tp have been inhabitied by more than a few unsavory parties in the past. The bathroom floors are sticky so dont go in barefoot. This would be the worst hotel I have ever stayed at if the rate were 60/night. Even the flea bag places have hot water and the air conditioner works correctly. For what they charge here, this is the biggest rip off around. They should be ashamed of themselves. You would be very surprised to learn that this place is fairly new. It has to be the worst maintained property I have ever seen. Your room will be nasty. I can guarantee it. These other reviews giving this place high marks must have been written by the owner. Seriously. Stay away from this dump.

Room Tip: stay at another hotel!!!
