I travel every month and usually stay at this La Quinta or the other one over on 15-501. I have two small children and always feel safe here! This location is brand new and I love that! I always come to a clean room and friendly, prompt service.
Once I had a issue where I had made a reservation online and upon arrival had to stay in the only room left, which was a smoking room. I was told I would be able to switch rooms in the morning, and I was called promptly at 8a when a room was available. They cleaned it for me and made sure I was in there as soon as possible. I would have left for another hotel had it not been after midnight when I arrived. The hotel staff made sure I was comfortable with the new room and was always friendly.
I think this hotel is a great one for family, they have a pool, although outside. It is also close to many fun things like South Point Mall, Buffalo Wild Wings, Target and then of course the rest of Durham and Raleigh. The only times I haven't stayed here was when I found a better rate at a local Microtel.
