Great location off the interstate, quick checkin, clean room with fridge, microwave and kingsize bed all for $50. Can't beat that in this economy! Will definitly stay again!

Our room was clean and nicely decorated. The hotel has been recently updated. Other reviews mentioned the beds were hard. I prefer a firm mattress, so I was comfortable. The breakfast was not as expansive as that of similar chains (no fruit, yogurt, or hard boiled eggs). All in all, a very good value.

The La Quinta Inn is just off Interstate 55 in Bloomington IL, a long one-day drive from the Toronto area. I was on my way to Kansas City for business meetings - left Toronto early, crossed the border at Sarnia Blue Water Bridge. The inn is basic accommodation, nothing fancy but it is quiet, has Wi-Fi, and is not expensive. There is a Cracker Barrel Restaurant next door across the parking lot. Breakfast at La Quinta is also basic, but serves the purpose.

I was not pleased with my choice of this location for my stay. I stayed in three LaQuintas last week. My Express Check-In was ready at the other two, this was not. The Express Check-Out was prepared at the other two, this was not. The check-in desk clerk seemed unaware of my preferences in my Returns profile or the reservation. I was asked to present a credit card which neither of the other two LaQuintas found necessary. I am wondering why this location does not operate under the same criteria that other LaQuintas operate under.

That said, the $45 per night rate is reasonable and all that it is worth. Old 27" TV instead of flat screen HD, old furniture. The room key cards don't work properly (I tried all the cards I had, same with each) in the exterior or interior door card access units.

Having been a Caballero Club (Returns) member since 1979 I have come to expect more of a facility with the LaQuinta brand. I probably won't be back. I have no problem with paying more and receiving the value I expect.

I would not recommend this hotel! Staff was rather rude to me and the a/c kept cutting off every two seconds. My room faced a brick wall. Bathroom too small for me. No space for pet to go potty outside.

I stay here often. The rooms are clean, the beds are comfortable and the staff is great! Each room has a large upholstered chair and a comfortable desk and chair. I often need to read and work, so this is nice for me. The internet works well. There are many fast food restaurants very near and a Cracker Barrel within walking distance (across the parking lot).

Limited truck parking. Near 2 truck stops. Food within walking distance. Bathroom is rather small, but bed was comfortable and pillows very soft.
