The blight of the deserted Great America mall aside, I was surprised by the quality of the accommodations here. As a business traveler I've stayed in many hotels charging 3 times the price I paid whose rooms and service were no better than this. Our room was spotlessly clean - and I'm pretty picky. The bed was very comfortable. The free breakfast buffet had a large selection on hand and it was restocked continually up until the cut off time. Nice!
The swimming pool/spa was the only location on the property that wasn't up to par. The water was a bit murky and a good scrubbing of the pool area is needed to earn my appreciation.
LaQuinta's pet friendly policy is unbeatable. They don't charge extra for pets as some hotels will do; in fact, we've incurred pet surcharges that doubled the price of our room at other hotels. Not here. Pets stay free at La Quinta. Nice!
I haven't stayed at this budget chain before now but after this experience I will give them another try - especially when we travel with our dog.
