I highly recommend this place. The manager and staff were very friendly from the first day until the check out. They even have a good customer service since the firs phone call I made asking for room availability before getting there. The breakfast and rooms were good, I think all we needed. I really enjoyed staying there with my family, even at the pool. The manager helped me out as guide to find the best beaches of the area through a map. I would love to go back again for next vacation. :)

Room Tip: Quite place, pretty close to the beach, all clean.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 12, 2013

Check-in was fairly expedient considering there was a large group checking in ahead of us for a family reunion. We were a bit concerned about possible noise issues but, despite being put on the same floor, never really heard much.

The room was very clean and had all the necessities. Breakfast the next morning including scrambled eggs and sausage along with the usual La Quinta morning fare. Again, quite good considering it was free.

The manager on duty, Mr. Patel, was very pleasant to deal with. I have seen previous comments regarding his good nature and can honestly say that I agree. I would definitely stay here again if I was ever in the area.

NOTE:
Directly adjacent to the back of the hotel property is the large, neon and kitschy Quaker Steak & Lube restaurant. Great place to take the family, especially for car and racing enthusiasts.

Room Tip: Always a good rule of thumb no matter where you stay: Make sure to ask for a room that is NOT near...

This hotel and its staff were great with our family group and were very accommodating to our group. Preregistration was easy and all request were honored with enthusiasm.

I would recommend this hotel to other families who may be planning a reunion.

I have been a fan of LaQuinta for seven years. This is by far the best hotel I've been in. The rooms were very clean and slept very well. The hallways were extremely quiet. The spread of the food was very good (just needs hot or instant grits) and it would have been perfect

We chose this hotel after spending two nights somewhere else and being disappointed with our stay. I just wish we would have known what a nice hotel this was and stayed here all three nights. Our room was VERY clean and in good shape. After our previous experience elsewhere, this was a huge relief! We had a restful night's sleep and woke up to a nice breakfast stocked with eggs, sausage, waffles, yogurt, bagels, muffins, juice, etc. The thing that really stands out about this hotel is the customer service. All of the staff that we talked to were very nice, but in particular Mr. Patel, the general manager. He was there at the front desk when we checked in, and was so nice to us. The next morning he was walking around chatting with guests during breakfast, asking how everything was. Outstanding, he really makes you feel like a valued guest, and goes out of his way to make sure you are happy with your stay, even if you are only there for one night. The hotel is in a convenient location to many things we like to do when we're in the area, so I am sure that we will be coming back to this La Quinta from now on. Thank you Mr. Patel for such an enjoyable (although short) stay!

Room Tip: Rooms on the pool-side of the building are quieter.

All the staff were very polite and accommodating. The breakfast was well stocked; pool and hot tub areas were very clean; overall perfect stay at an excellent value. The hot tub wasn't hot upon arrival. I inquired about it and they said sometimes when there aren't a lot of guests they turn it down. Very understandable. They turned it up and by the next evening it was nice and hot! Very relaxing.
