Our experience with LaQuinta in general is that the properties are good values and run well. This hotel, on the east side of Memphis, shows that good hoteliers can make customers happy even during renovations.
Our rate was very good (we're AARP members) and the room they gave us was larger than we expected. We stayed on a Sunday and Monday night, so occupancy was down. They chose to give us a nicer room just because they had one, What others have said about the beds is true. Extraordinarily comfortable.
The free breakfast was not as lavish as some others, but it was perfectly adequate. What really made our stay special was that the management stopped more than once to ask us how they were doing and talk about our visit to Memphis.
They didn't charge us for having a dog with us and had a good walking area behind this urban hotel. We look forward to stopping there again when their improvements are complete.
