After 14 hours of driving, probably anyplace may of seemed nice. But, this place was was extra special. Well appointed, comfortable, modern and very clean. We have (3) very small dogs. I understand a few owners can't control their pets and ruins it for others, in the form of extra $$$, special dirty rooms or no pets allowed. What a welcome relief is the La Quinta pet policy. And the room/Hotel showed no signs of devastation. Check-in/out was a breeze (especially nice, cuz I was tired). The staff was very friendly and helpful with warm just out of the oven cookies. The front desk even called after we had settled in our room just to ask if everything was ok and did we need anything. What a nice touch. Continental breakfast with make-it-yourself waffles was included too. This was our first stay. In future travels, I'll be searching out La Quinta Hotels - We'll done. Highly recommend.
