The hotel is gorgeous and has a modern look which was very inviting. The rooms are clean and beds are soooo comfortable. The continental breakfast is just what you need and I love that there are 2 waffle makers. I would definitely stay there again.

Had a great stay at this hotel which is very nice location to nearby downtown and parks/beach,etc.. The room was a suite in any other hotel and was very comfortable.
Pleasant desk person greeted me and had me in the room in less than 3 minutes!
2 minutes from great places to eat too!

My girlfriend and I spent a Saturday night here and were very comfortable. The location was central to all of our travel destinations. The parking is free. The staff is friendly, and check-out isn't until noon. For the negative: there were no wash cloths in our room.

This La Quinta is different from the others décor wise- it is decorated with light colored wood/Scandinavian/retro style (more upscale). I stayed in a spacious suite- it was nice and quiet, I slept well on the comfortable mattress. The suite had a microwave and fridge. I had a very pleasant stay here. La Quinta is dog friendly.

I stayed here for one night and since I have only stayed in one other La Quinta, which I didn't care for, I was very happy with this one. It had four floors and a very nice breakfast area. It had a bright, clean, modern lobby and it looked as if the place had recently been refurbished. The rooms carried the same theme. Unfortunately the beds were doubles and not queens but I wasn't sharing so it was roomy enough. The room had two corner padded benches with lamps behind them and it was quite roomy. The downside was the sink area. It was outside the bathroom and unfortunately it was a pedestal sink so there wasn't much room to put my personal items. The temperature of the room needed to be set at about 68 because if you raised it there was a funky smell, like a shirt that was singed by a hot iron, coming from the ac unit. Breakfast was nothing great, the usual free breakfast fare, ie: cereal, yogurt, fruit, juices, pastries and waffles. The rate was very good for the area. There were three rooms booked at the same time. One of the people in my group had called ahead for featherless pillows and were told that they would have them waiting in the room which they did not. We assumed we would all have rooms near each other but that wasn't the case, we were actually spread over three different floors.

Room Tip: Request a room with a vanity if you need room to spread out near the sink. Others in our group had...

We love to stay at this hotel because of the location to things we like to do. This is a very clean hotel and the beds are really comfortable. We have been staying at this hotel for quite a few years and have always had a great experience. Debbie at the reception desk is a jewel. She has always been so accommodating and always has a smile on her face. We always look forward to seeing her when we stay there.
