We stopped in at this hotel after seeing a coupon for a good room rate in the Hotels books you can pick up at any rest area. We called, and inquired as to the age of the property, time since last renovations, age of mattressses, etc. After hearing what seemed to be all the answers we were looking for, we decided to go ahead and stop here.
Rooms were average. Cleanliness left a little to be desired. Bathroom countertops were very dusty, and the sink showed that the previous occupant had shaved before he left. The beds, at least in the room we were in, are in desperate need of new mattresses. Even the 12 year old, who can sleep anywhere, complained the bed was uncomfortable.
The toilets are of the "low flow, high velocity" type. Incredibly loud! If a toilet flushes within 3 rooms of yours...on your floor, above, or below...you know it! It actually woke us up in the middle of the night! Can't imagine who thought they were a good idea.
I know many people prefer La Quinta because it is "pet friendly". However, I think they should really look into some guidelines. People were walking their dogs through the breakfast area, past the food, some even brought the dogs to breakfast with them. Not very sanitary, in my opinion.
All in all, the hotel served its purpose. Can't say that I will make a point to seek it out again in the future.
