“Clean and Simple”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 25, 2014

The LaQuinta was conveniently off the highway, which is why we chose it. The room was clean, almost too clean with a strong odor of air freshener, perhaps to cover up dog odor from previous guests?

This hotel is very dog friendly, so if you have allergies or children who don't like dogs I'd avoid it. At one point there was a German shepherd running loose outside our room.

We stayed on the third floor, and even with the AC unit running on high were quiet warm all night.

The breakfast room was tiny and crowded with a very limited selection of choices, no fresh fruit as far as I could tell.

Overall our stay was unimpressive, but suites our needs for a quick stop. I do feel that it is overpriced for what we got, and more like a 2 star hotel.

The location, staff, and convenience distinguish this property. I couldn't hear the freeway noise, it was less than a mile to a new YMCA, and near many locally owned restaurants. The efficient and friendly staff complemented my stay.

Place is perfect if you have pets - no extra fee for pets and Lobby is full of variety of dogs.....
Simple room....after long day of Driving bed is comfy enough. Parents were with me and at $64 senior rate - can't really complain. Good place to stop for weary travelers and their companions

I've stayed here more than a few times, always good service and a clean room. There is parking for larger vehicles at the end of the building. I have nothing else to say..... why make me type so much just to submit?

The La Quinta in Clive was a great stop for us on our trip to Colorado! Staff was helpful, had my reservation all ready. Room was OK, color scheme was a little odd, but who cares about that when your eyes are closed? the true star was the fabulous indoor heated pool and spa; we spent a good chunk of the evening in the pool with our kids. Really nice facility!

Great front desk staff ~ always friendly and I have very rarely had to wait for my room even when arriving before noon. Rooms are very roomy, very clean and smell nice w/o overwhelming scents/sprays.
I bring water and food and the frig always works correctly ~ which I find extremely rare in hotels.
Beds are good for a hotel bed ~ not great. Probably just time to replace them.
Workout room is average, but meets one's needs.
Pool and spa are always clean. Nice outdoor space also.
QuickTrip and restaurant just steps away. Easy access to interstate and close to 2 malls for shopping. I also like that you can get out and take a walk in the area.
GREAT value for your MONEY!!

Room Tip: If traveling with children, the 2 room suite is a steal and will give you privacy after the kids hit...
