We planned a very last minute weekend trip and was thrilled we were able to bring our 2 dogs with us. We usually don't vacation with our dogs however the kennel we normally leave them at was booked up. Thankfully, LQ is pet friendly and does not charge anything additionally. I was pleased they had a pet spot to take... More

A bit on the pricey side compared to others in the area, but you can always count on La Quinta hotels being nice and clean. I would stay there again. The a/c was nice and cold. The bathrooms were clean. Friendly staff.

On a quick trip through New Mexico, fatigue hit us and we called this great hotel late and they had what we wanted and at a great rate. Next morning we had a great free breakfast and got on or way rested.

Great location. Spanish Speaking staff unwilling to communicate in Spanish. Breakfast is good with a mix of hot and cold options. Housekeeping needs some improvement, the old towels were not removed after the room had been "cleaned".

This is a clean and modern hotel on the edge of town but near the racetrack. The staff was super friendly and helpful. Pets are allowed, and there were a lot of dogs staying there when we were there. We didn't notice any leftover evidence of pets in the hotel, so they must do a good job of keeping it... More

Comfy beds and clean rooms for a good price. I'd you can get a room away from the road I will be quiet. We heard the cars all night (this doesn't bother my family at all it's like white-noise to them but for others I could see it being a problem) My only picky complaint is with the air freshener...

Good overall. My only real complaint was the way I was charged on the weekend. I still believe if you are staying more then one or two days your rate should stay the same through out the stay and not increase on weekends.

Enjoyed our stay there. Staff was great, rooms clean and nice area to walk the pets. Even though I always have my own little bags to pick up after my dogs I was glad to see they also had posts with bags for those who may not have any on hand.

Front staff was always very helpful asking if we needed anything when we were passing through. They assisted with any questions we had plus they had fresh cookies every day at 6pm! Rooms were cleaned and smelling fresh.
