“Not the best choice”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 9, 2014

I was really excited about choosing this location for its convenience and price and all of the decent reviews. However, after one night I said never again. I had to change my room two times since the cleanliness of the bathrooms in particular was bad (either the housekeepers are shedding all of their hair or the tubs and sink were not cleaned properly). The rooms tended to smell musty. Although everyone praised the pet policy, being put in a room next to multiple howling dogs is horrible. It does not help that the walls are paper thin and the doors are very light too (the hallway light beams through the cracks as does more loud sounds). All of this and the hotel was not completely full so let your imagination get the best of you.

we are travelling through the South of the USA and experienced the LaQuinta hotel chain. We are very satisfied with the services rendered. Clean rooms, friendly and helpful employees. We will try it again on our next trip to the US.

This is a very special LaQuinta property. We like this chain because it is pet-friendly, but sometimes find that the "human comforts" aren't up to snuff. Not so with this one. The hotel is relatively new and has a very open, spacious feel - accentuated by an impressive, two-story high atrium lobby. Certainly not your basic LaQuinta. Rooms are tastefully furnished and well-equipped for the leisure or business traveler. Our only disappointment was the breakfast. Yes, they had the usual waffle-maker, but only hard-boiled eggs and baked goods beyond that. Still, we thought we received very good travel value here.

Room Tip: All rooms are good.

Sadly we chose location over value. Pet friendly is one thing, not cleaning the elevator is another. Thankfully we only had one level to climb the stairs to avoid the smell of poop in the elevator.

Although we were offered free wi-fi, when we called the front desk to communicate our inability to connect we were told to call *916, select option 3, then select another option which she could not remember. After calling and communicating our location and room #, we were told that we needed to be transferred to someone else. The next person said he would help us. After about 3 minutes he said he would figure out the problem and call us back in 10 minutes. You guessed it! He didn't call us back. Other then being able to access the internet for 12 seconds every 6 hours, we gave up.

When checking in, make sure they don't give you room 202, smelling of smoke although a non-smoking room (they said they would make note of it). You can always ask for a cot (for $10.00) and sleep in the lobby, where they have a TV and internet access!

We stayed there to visit Duke University, and it is located 7 minutes away from the campus. Very clean, spacious rooms, nice garden patio, indoor pool, and nice breakfast room with free hot breakfast. Matresses are very comfortable

Beautiful courtyard, Very clean with a unique structure. I felt very safe, there was a decent variety of breakfast foods but the beds were uncomfortable; my daughter and I both woke up with aches and pains and felt very un-rested. There was little to no insulation in the walls and an out of date "order out " menu, which means the prices were 33% higher than listed on the menu. ($33 for 2 spaghetti plates!)
