I am quite partial to the LaQuinta chain in general, because they frequently provide a value point hotel in the above-average category. This hotel property was no exception - it was nice and very well-mainteained. The courtyard with gazebo was especially pleasant and well-landscaped.
My wife and I stayed here for two nights when moving our daughter in to Duke. The move-in coincided with Hurricane Irene's assault on the Carolina coast, which resulted in a hotel packed with Hurricane refugees waiting to get home. The guests (and their many, many dogs) were great and it was interesting to hear their stories. However, its times like these that are the true test of how well a hotel is prepared to serve its customers. Unfortunately, this LaQuinta faltered on a few points.
First, we needed a double room since my daughter wanted to stay the first night. I didn't book one, and only smoking doubles were available. That is my own fault, and we just opted for a King. Unfortunately the hotel did not have any roll-aways available. That one I am faulting the hotel for, since they should be stocked for sell-out nights. There were no extra sheets or blankets in our room so we asked for some extras, and they didn't have any. Then we noticed that we had only feather pillows in our room (my wife is allergic), and it took then over an hour to find a fiberfill pillow (by which time we were sleeping, my wife with no pillow).
The property is nice and the price is good, so I would stay here again if I knew they were not sold out. However, if this place is crowded then you had better not ask for any extras, because you probably won't get them.
