“Disapointed in Choice Hotels”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 12, 2013

This hotel is a bit older than I thought from the description on line. Rooms were large separate living room with TV ( Older TV) and a bedroom with another old TV.. Bathroom separated the two rooms. Beds were comfortable. Air conditioner worked , but if you wanted just the fan it smelled of dirty feet!. The air conditioner was only in the bedroom, so it did not reach the living room area. The bathroom is older they really need to clean up the tub,,, ,Large yellow ring around the tub. There is a third floor to this hotel and they seem to have booked all the children on that floor. Stomping and yelling until after midnight. We could hear the couple next door to us when in the bathroom, so I would say thin walls.. Breakfast is the standard continental but they could at least thaw the muffins and bread! Not a place I would return to.

Would definitely only return to this one if we can't find anything else and we're desperate... We signed up for 3 nights with central reservations who told us there wouldn't be a problem if we decided to go with only 2 nights... at the hotel we were told we were required to give a 14 DAY advance notice and if we left we would be charged anyway. The reason given was the balloon festival. Have never run across a policy like this one... so beware.

Cons: -outdated room, not maintained well, needs attention
-air conditioner only worked intermittently
-lampshade torn
-stained bathtub
-clock radio didn't work
-very dark "living room"
-exposed metal pipes & poles holding up the cracked sink/counter in "living room"
-outdated tv's
-wifi required watching commercials & problems with making wifi work
-lumpy quilts
-after the cleaning, they sprayed heavy duty scent that aggravated my allergies
-only tiny apples & oranges (size of a lemon) for fruit in breakfast room & looked like they'd been there for weeks (yuk)

To be fair, here are the pro's:
-very nice desk & service people
-good location
-quiet during sleep hours (not during day)
-breakfast ok

First time staying at this property. The stay was adequate. Large room for the price - no complaint there. My room was clean. I am gluten free and vegan, so not much choices for me with the breakfast meal, but that is the usual case, so no surprise there. I would stay there again with my family.

Stayed April 2013

The rooms are quite large, You have a complete living room as well as a separate bedroom connected by a small hallway with a sink.The positives end there.

First, the Wireless Internet connection only works if you first watch a video, read an advertisement or take a survey. I am fine with that with the exception that the video does not engage for at least 3 minutes and you have to repeat this exercise every 30 minutes. That means that if you are staying here on business or rely on the Internet for VOIP or making calls, do not stay here. The Wireless will just stop on your device. It's very aggravating,

Next, the air conditioner did not work and just blows luke warm air. It was March and the room was a sauna. I cannot imagine how it will be in the summer

To top it all off, I was checked into a dirty room and had to wait for new keys in the hallway.

Choose another hotel for your sanity,

Room Tip: Ask where the air conditioner works.

This hotel was in the process of being refurbished when we stayed. Our room was next on the list so I expect it will be much better in the future. The staff in this hotel was peerless. The guest desk staff were helpful, friendly, the best ever.
We travel with a small dog and the small dog rule seemed to be in effect as there were no very large dogs..as has become the case (alas) with La Quinta.
Centrally located. Good price.

Outdated, filthy dirty, smelly rooms, disgusting guest laundry, carpting, wallpaper, paint, vanities, mirrors, furniture in TOTAL disrepair. Pocket door falling off track, sinks, toilets, bath tubs scratched, stained, disgusting. Silicon caulking moldy. NEVER AGAIN. Choice Hotels should be ashamed to allow their name be associated with this property. DON'T STAY HERE.

Room Tip: Don't stay here.
