A family of 5 stayed at this location during the week of spring break. Coming from Austin, I am unfamiliar with Dallas in general and was really taking a chance not knowing the location. It turns out, the location wasn't bad at all. Yes, it is in a business park and most rooms face the Enterprise rental trucks or an office building, but you really don't come to Dallas for the views. We had room 419 and 421. You can see downtown from 421.
With a 15 yr. old daughter, and an 18 yr. old son, it's hard to find hotel accommodations that will allow my wife and myself one bed, my daughter a bed, and my son a bed. At the last minute, my son decided to bring a friend. This made things even more difficult. We decided to go for the Embassy suites with a 2 bdrm. 2 bath with 2 full beds, 1 king and a sleeper for $257 a night. This seemed like our only option. This still meant 5 people in a single space. When I found this La Quinta, I almost thought it was too good to be true. It was $109 a night for a double bed room. Problem solved. I was able to get two separate rooms for $218 a night for both rooms. Cheaper than the Embassy. When we arrived, I thought that maybe they wouldn't be able to put us close together, but the front desk was more than helpful. In fact, everyone there was top notch. Our first night there was my daughters birthday. She opened a gift and what do you know...we forgot the batteries. I called the lobby late night and asked if they had batteries for sell. The maintenance man brought some up within minutes at no charge!! That really made our stay.
In summary, the rooms are clean, as well as the hotel itself. It has a small but decent gym, laundry room, hot standard hotel breakfast (good enough) and a Starbucks not even 3 mins. away. If you are planning on going to the Medieval Times, it's only about 7 mins. away and that's during rush hour. If you aren't planning on going to the Medieval Times, you should. It's quite the event. This was also not very far from the Aquarium, museums, and the Klyde Warren Park. Excellent lunch from the food trucks! In all, it was a great stay.
