We stayed 1 night on our trip back from Knoxville at this establishment and wow what a nice surprise. This was our first stay in Valdosta and we loved it. Everything from the friendly check in, the happy hour in the lobby from 6-8 pm (free wine, beer and cookies), to the stylish rooms with wall pics that dated back to the early 1900's era Valdosta. If you are in a walking mood and they are a stone throw from the hotel, there are 3 restaurants (Outback, Texas Roadhouse and Hooters) that offer a 10% discount by showing your room key. Hey that works! Quick access off and on the interstate, a gorgeous pool with tropical setting, the breakfast area is large and well kept with great choices for breakfast.....we have now made this hotel part of our trips whenever possible. The only negative was being near the ice machine which was situated in a hallway as opposed to its own enclosed area if you are a light sleeper....Nice work to all at La Quinta Valdosta.
