We stayed here due to the good reviews, and the fact that we quite often travel with our small dog. There are several exceptional LaQuintas now, and we always check out the reviews for whatever city we might be in. After a long drive, we checked in and I signed the pet policy card which plainly states that guests are not to leave their dog unattended in the room. After unpacking, we (including our dog) went to dinner and did a bit of shopping, arriving back at the motel around 6:30 pm. My husband and I were looking forward to turning in early. That didn't happen, because there was a large dog and two smaller dogs barking nonstop from the room next door. We couldn't really tell if the two smaller dogs were in the same room, but the big dog was definitely in the room next to ours. It's obvious that in a pet friendly hotel, there will be the occasional bark of a dog. But, this was CONTINUAL...NONSTOP BARKING. My husband called the front desk several times and complained, and was told by the clerk that he was not the only one complaining. She stated that she tried calling the owners but they never answered their phone. This went on until after 10 pm, when we finally insisted that we be moved to another room on another floor as far away from the barking dog as possible. Either that or we would be leaving and finding a different hotel, which is what my husband really wanted to do. I talked him into trying another room first and we were moved to the third floor. By now it was 10:30 and we were exhausted. The bathroom had obviously not been serviced or done in a sloppy manner, because there was a used washcloth on the shower rail and a used bar of soap on the tub. Gross. Rather than complain, I decided I'd clean it myself the next morning. The rest of our stay was fine, but I can't help but wonder what the motel staff did about the irresponsible people who left their dog/dogs unattended for hours on end. The staff should enforce their rules, and those who do not abide by the rules and allow their dog to disturb everyone else...they should be made to leave. An occasional bark is understandable, but not consistent barking for hours on end. If we experience this too many times at la quinta, we will be staying in another hotel chain even if it means paying a pet fee.
