Clean, comfortable room, reasonably priced, in a safe neighborhood. Only negative is that there are not many restaurants in the immediate area. It is close to the casino but you do need to drive or take a taxi because there is no easy way to walk to the casino. The fairgrounds is between hotel and casino and it is a... More

dirty...everything smelled of smoke and we were in a non smoking room. I can't say much of anything that was good about this hotel including their so called free continental breakfast. The room was expensive for what we received including no upgrades even though we are rewards members

We had an event nearby that made this location ideal. The employee at check-in was very friendly but throughout the day we saw her get very frustrated she seemed to be the only one on the clock. We waited over an hour for an extra blanket and didn't dare to try to order food or make any other requests. The... More

I have been in other LaQuinta Hotels & this just wasn't up to the same standards. When we 1st arrived & were checking in, you could here people running on the 2nd floor, even the woman checking us in made a comment. Our room was nice but the carpet look dirty & the shower seemed to not be cleaned completely.... More

Far from my flavour of hotels but...they are dog friendly and I just happened to be in the company of a chihuahua and a pitbull. So from that perspective it was a stellar establishment. The staff, especially Ashlei at front desk, was exceptionally friendly and the location 2nd to none; immediately off exit 7 @ I-4, a $5 Uber ride... More

We have stayed at this motel multiple times. We always stay here when the RV Show is going on at the fairgrounds. It is a short walk across the road. They accommodate pets which is a plus for us. The motel is always clean. The staff is friendly and helpful.

Horrible smell of cigar everywhere even inside the non-smoking room. This hotel must be labeled "only for smokers". Refrigerator was rusted without the temperature control knob. Would never stay here again.
