My husband and I are "Elite" members and, thus, stay quite a bit in La Quintas throughout the year. Tulare was a midway point for us traveling from Las Vegas to Napa, and the property is relatively new. As "Elite" members, we received an upgrade to a king-bed room with couch combination, which worked perfect for us as we were eating in, and our 24-year-old daughter was with us. The only downside to the large room we were provided was the couch bed was extremely uncomfortable for our daughter. The king-bed for my husband and me was perfectly comfortable.
A fitness room is available, but very small, and provided only a treadmill and stationary bike. The staff was very friendly and helpful. One criticism we had was with respect to the breakfast. While eggs and bacon were provided, they tasted terrible, and I think the eggs were originally in powder form. The waffle mix was not any better. The only thing edible was the cereal, milk, bread (for toast) and apples. The coffee and juice were also OK. Criticisms and all, we definitely will stay here again.
