Room was relatively clean (could have vacuumed better around the edges) and the bed was comfortable. Bathroom was clean. Front desk personnel were friendly and efficient. However, the mildew smell in the room and halls and the high whine of the mini-fridge need to be corrected. The hotel is nothing fancy, but adequate.

The place felt very insecure. Homeless people approach you outside and scare the crap out of you. The desk staff was not nice at all but at least the maintenance guy was very nice. I didn't get his name but I think he had braids. We heard gunshots during the night. The room was semi-clean and cool. We were just... More

Old and outdated hotel tucked behind a Shoney's restaurant and surrounded by shady parking lots and restaurants. Looks to be a former economy hotel property. Staff was friendly and the room was clean but this was a 1 1/2 star hotel at best. Bathroom consisted of a toilet and shower and the sink was located in the room's entranceway. Carpet... More

I stopped at a La Quinta because they are known to accept pets. I travel with my dogs quite a bit and when we go into a "pet" room, the dogs usually go crazy sniffing the bed spreads and rugs because they smell like other animals. We walked into this LaQuinta and the dogs did not react. There was no... More

Overall, it was an ok place to stay. We knew it was a pet friendly place, which was good b/c we had our Maltese as well but our room smelled like big wet dogs and dog poop! I think that a hotel that also except pets should clean the carpets every time someone leave out! We were there b/c our... More

La Quinta hotels are wonderful, in that they allow at no cost for you to bring your pets with you. However, this hotel does not offer rooms large enough for you and your pets to stay, without problems with space in your room! It would also behove La Quinta to allow customers who make reservations on line, to be able... More

Nice clean room. No charge for my pet. Nice clean comfortable bed, clean linens, clean carpet etc. Closet was a little musty smelling but other than that nice room! Stayed in a king executive room with a fridge, microwave. Very nice.

Upon arrival the power was out so we had over an hour wait until we could check into our room. That made for a late night. A generator or other backup power system for check-in would be nice if this is a common problem. Breakfast variety was lacking but good quality.

Nice hotel, good breakfast, dog friendly. Decent location, close to numerous restaurants, gas stations and about 10 minute drive to two local breweries (River Rat and Swamp Cabbage, both well worth a visit).

Have stayed here several times on our way back from Miami. Good value for the money. The rooms could be a little updated. Breakfast is always good, as with all the LQs. Would definitely stay here again in the future.
