“Didn't expect a lot out of this hotel. Boy was I wrong.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 27, 2013

The hotels location is just about ideal for those who are headed to the Windstar casino. The staff is very friendly & helpful. The room was spotless and the beds were quite comfortable. The hot breakfast was surprisingly tasty. We had a wheelchair accessible room with two queen beds. I had no trouble getting around the room & into the bathroom. The room was as well-designed as any I've ever stayed in. The only con I can come up with was how insistent they were that we'd be out of a room at checkout time. Apparently 10 minutes past noon is more than their process can handle. Nonetheless, I would definitely stay here again and recommend it to others.

The hotel was average, but the free breakfast was the all time sorriest I've ever had. It was free, so at least we didnt have to pay anything. I wouldnt recommend staying here, hallways were noisy all nite long.

Rooms are still clean, beds still high and comfortable and linens clean. Plus its still dog friendly. This time its a two night stay.
Due to the "do not disturb" sign housekeeping did not bother to pay a second visit. I just needed the trash thrown out. Otherwise my room was still immaculately clean.
Breakfast was fantastic, only issue was the hard boiled egg. It just tasted funny all three did so trash it went.
Front desk not familiar with the BestBuy/La Quinta promo. So, I'm losing out on reward points towards my Best Buy Rewards.
I still enjoy my stay at this particular La Quinta.

Fantastic one night stay. Beds are high, soft and comfortable, that's a plus. Easy check in no wait easy check out no wait. Friendy to talk to employees at the front desk and well informed. Definately will stay again.

First they get it right here. No pet fee and they allow animals up to 50 pounds. I stayed this time with my dog and even she liked it. The only thing really missing is they should have a designated area outside to walk pets and maybe provide waste bags for the irresponsible owners.

The hotel is in good shape and clean. The staff was very good and helpful. The breakfast bar is the usual type but it was hot and always fresh. Many times I find the breakfast bars old and the food not so fresh.

Good location to the casino and everything Gainesville. Restaurants within walking distance.

For what appears to be a fairly new 4 story hotel, it looks great from Hwy I 35. The two way access road makes it a little tricky getting into and out of the facility. It is not really near anything, including eateries - an important thing to a business traveler.

The check-out clerk offered the excuse that the hotel was full, which accounted for the noise intrusion into my room from the hallway, the adjacent rooms, the air conditioner, and the highway. While the bed was comfortable and the linens were good, this was not a restful stay. some time after I got into bed, my neighbor also got into his bed - the wall shook. There was no light bulb in the desk lamp, the accumulated dust around the perimeter of the room was noticeable on the carpet.

My current experience with La Quinta is: It's a crap shoot from property to property. Some are good, others not so much. This property is a "not so much". The La Quinta North Lubbock was, by comparison, OK.

Room Tip: If quiet and a good night's rest is your goal, you need to stay elsewhere.

This hotel is wonderful! The staff is great and very friendly. The hotel was one of the nicest LQ's I've ever stayed at. It's very clean & comfortable. We went to the Windstar Casino for an event and it was just a hop, skip and a jump over there. You can't go wrong with this hotel.
