“Such a Friendly Place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 13, 2014

This is my "home away from home" while traveling on business. I am here almost every month for a couple of days. The staff all greet me by name and welcome me back. However, I wanted to share my most recent experience with you. I hadn't come since November. So, it had been quite a while. When I checked in, I received my usual warm greeting. Upon opening the door, I found a "toy puppy" made of rolled towels and wash clothes (see photo below) and a great welcome back sign on the bed.

At breakfast the next morning, the staff told me how much they had missed me and how good it was to have me back. As I left in the morning, the manager wished me a great day, and sent an email mid morning again wishing me a great day.

How much better does travel get than this?

What a great place.

By the way, the property and rooms are always clean and neat. Breakfast is great. And the La Quinta chain has a secret weapon - it has the on/off switches for its lamps on the base of the lamps, not hidden up under the shades. The lamp on the desk has a convenient outlet to charge your phone or plug in your laptop.

The staff was remarkable, always smiling and asking if they could do anything to improve my stay. The room was clean and comfortable, but the bed was very accommodating. The location was close to where I had business to conduct. The breakfast was complete with eggs and bagels, my favorite.

My son and his family came to visit us in Albuquerque after the holidays. The enjoyed their stay at this property and were very complimentary of the staff and the room in general. The location was also very good as it is close to the highway. In general they were very happy with their stay at the LQ Inn & Suites.

We had a great stay at this location. Check in was quick and smooth. We parked right by a door near the elevator, put everything on a luggage cart and were quickly settled in our 3rd floor room. We slept great and left early. We would definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: There's some "hidden" parking in the back.

Stopped here with 2 dogs and found the room clean comfy and quiet. But the staff -from reception to the house keeping staff. They greeted us warmly and made sure all was well just like in the high end spots down the road. If I need a hotel in Albuquerque in the future this will be it!

This was our first time staying at this La Quinta location. Since we are headed for Colorado, it is preferable to stay north of I-40 to avoid the heavy traffic, and are just off I-25 which is really easy to access when we leave in the morning. We were very pleased with the service at the front desk and the staff's friendliness. The room was quite nice and comfortable, besides being quiet. The price was excellent for the room. We will definitely plan to stay here next year on our way through again.

Room Tip: Did not use a spa nor the restaurant, as we left before the weekend breakfast time. We were trying t...
