“One night on the Historic”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 12, 2013

This was a little bit out of the way, but a great clean hotel. A good breakfast the breakfast room was a little small for the amount of guests staying. Swimming Pool, Jacuzzi and steam room. Great views of the mountains from our windows. No close place to eat without going in the car. So we went to the local supermarket which had a good selection of salads and meats to have a picnic in the room, as there is a fridge and microwave in every room. A good stretch of the Route 66 to drive along, also the El Ranch hotel is up the road. This hotel is close to the I40.
Excellent hotel, very clean could not fault it.

Room Tip: A first floor room would provide you with some great scenery

This was our 3rd stay in a La Quinta and we found it just as clean and comfortable as the previous two La Quinta locations. The staff was friendly and even gave us some cold breakfast options since we had to leave before they had the hot food ready that was included in the price of our room. We weren't expecting to be able to have any of the included breakfast because we had to leave so early but appreciated them accommodating our early departure with a few cold food options.

So we drove home from Buffalo, NY to Las Vegas, NV booking only La Qunitas because of their dog friendly policy. Four nights total. Our last stay was in Gallup, NM and wow, the best of them all. Must be fairly new. Spotlessly clean rooms, great beds, great staff. They even have a small pet walk area. The breakfast was better than yesterdays stay in Amarillo, but I'm not a fan of fake bacon. Better selection. The location is excellent. With only one bad stay out of 4, La Quinta still gets a thumbs up from me for pet friendly. Price isn't much more that most hotels charge for the pet deposit alone. Nice job La Quinta.

The LaQuinta Inn in Gallup, NM is a good value. The rooms are amply sized and there is a fridge/microwave in every room. The décor is a bit dated with it's teal and rose pink color scheme, but the hotel is immaculately clean, and because the other amenities are amply sized--the hallways, the breakfast bar, the lobby, the pool-- it makes you feel luxuriated. In addition, there is a nicely-sized exercise room. Whoever designed this property deserves a big THANK you from pet owners. There is a small, gated and fenced-in pet area where you can let your pet off leash to do a wee and a poo or just have a sniff and run around. The pet area has a picnic table and is nicely landscaped. It also has a huge shade tree. Doggy poo bags and waste baskets are also provided. A huge bonus is that pets are allowed to stay at the hotel for free--no silly and exorbitant pet fee upcharge at the LaQuinta! The only downside to our stay (we stayed twice on two separate occasions) is that both times we were put into a room that faces the railroad tracks which also run parallel to Historic Hwy 66. The train runs every five minutes. Luckily, I had ear plugs along, so fell into a muted sleep! Lastly, I must say kudos to the staff at this hotel. They are friendly, available and totally on-the-ball!

Room Tip: If you are a light sleeper, ask for a room that does not face the railroad tracks.

We were traveling to Las Vegas and spent the night, we were late arrivals but our rooms were ready and waiting. The rooms were very clean and the beds were very comfortable especially after a 12 hour drive. Breakfast was good with your usual items scramble eggs, sausage, bacon, fruits and cereal. The staff was very friendly and helpful.

Located on the east end of town just off I-40, La Quinta offers a comfortable stay at a fair price. It is clustered with the HI Express and Comfort Suites in the same area. The room was a good size, beds comfortable, and it was clean. Satellite TV selection was good though the set itself was a bit small by today's standards. Breakfast bar had a good selection of hot and cold items and the ubiquitous waffle maker which seems to be the standard for this class of hotel. Has an indoor pool and small workout facility (treadmill, Universal) - again, standard for what you would find. My guess is the hotel was built in the late 1990s - early 2000s and has had some updating since. Nothing outstanding, nothing bad - just what you would expect from this chain which is why you choose it in the first place. Would certainly stay here again.

Room Tip: Ask for room on the opposite side of where the rooms that face the I-40 service road and the train t...

Absolutely gross!!! Will never stay here again! Drove all day and night just to walk into a room that smelled horrible! It smelled like mold and the carpet was damp! When I called to ask if there was another room they could put my family into, they said they were all booked but would be glad to come spray the room with febreeze! Really!? Upon inspection of the sheets we found them dirty as well! Only 2 towels in bathroom, called and asked for more towels and the (rude) woman working at the desk said she couldn't leave as she was the only one working. Mind you she was going to leave her desk to come spray febreeze in the stinky room? We asked if we could be refunded our money to go put our kids in a decent hotel they of course refused because it was after the cancellation deadline! I understand that but my goodness when a hotel doesn't meet everyday down to earth expectations and can't keep their rooms clean for our hard working money then I do have a problem with that!! Oh and by the way...says NON SMOKING well couple rooms down from ours they were smoking in the room! Told the rude clerk about that and her response was '' I know which room it is !" Apparently its up to you if you can smoke in your non smoking room or not cuz they didn't do anything about it! Guess they're just going to try and cover it up with febreeze when that person checks out. Oh and if you don't like the trains passing by every five minutes(literally) then you should avoid this hotel! Many reasons NOT to stay here! I'm really not picky, I just ask for a clean, non smoking room to lay my head is all. Have stayed at many La quintas and enjoyed them, but this one gives them a really bad name!!!!!
