This was our first time staying at a LaQuinta and we only stayed there because it was "about half way" home and was dog-friendly (we were traveling with our dog). I would stay there again with or without our pet. It was VERY clean and every single employee we came in contact with was friendly, polite and helpful. When does that EVER happen??? The breakfast was hot and had a nice variety. There was no extra charge for the dog or for the roll-away cot we requested. Unheard of!
