The rooms are open and big with plenty of room to move around and enjoy some views of the mountains and wooded areas around the hotel. We stayed in a King room across from the indoor pool and fitness center...

From the very first moment I called and made my reservation, I was greeted with professionalism. My expectations were exceeded starting from my phone call to the checkout process. My family and I enjoyed the clean and quiet environment of our La Quinta Suite. The rooms were larger than we expected which was a pleasant surprise.

I only stayed one night, but it was a nice hotel. The front desk lady was polite and gave me my room keys quickly. She was kind enough to give me recommendations on places to eat when I asked.

The hotel was good, but not great. In the upper middle level of quality. I stay in a lot of different hotels, I will use this one again. Location is easily accessible and centrally located. The bathroom did have an off smell.

Room was clean, staff was friendly, and they accept pets. We enjoyed it, and will stay here again. The only thing I did not enjoy was being right off Hywy 70, and walking entrance into the forest. The pool was nice, and we even utilized the weight room.

We have stayed at this hotel many times and have always found the rooms very clean and well maintained to be very good. The breakfast is always hot and delicious. The front desk staff and cleaning ladies are very polite and helpful. We really appreciate La Quinta's pet policy at other stays and locations.
