This was about the 15th time we have stayed in a La Quinta and this is the best one yet! The room was very nice. The breakfast was very good, offering different hot entrees every day. My husband loved the waffles, and I enjoyed the fresh fruit. The staff was very friendly and professional. Connor was one employee who was particularly helpful. When we were planning for this trip we read reviews regarding this La Quinta that mentioned the attached water park was somewhat of a problem but we did not notice anything negative.

I booked this hotel through booking.com because the reviews were great from cleanliness of hotel to the staff being great. I couldn’t be far from wrong. My family and I checked in at 10:30pm and when I walked into the hotel a mouse was at the front door and when staff was alerted they didn’t seem too concerned. Gross. Staff was not very friendly and almost seemed as if I was annoying them. So the next day my daughter takes a shower and dead bugs in the folded towel in the bathroom. Also bathroom was far from clean and other dead bugs laying around. My husband checks his bank and apparently we were fully charged for our room already when that’s supposed to occur at check out. We were not thrilled. I talk to front desk and he says maybe the employee swiped my card at check-in. At this point I’m feeling irritated but not going to go through the trouble of packing up and finding a new hotel with kids and already being unpacked. So we call Wyndham and notify them about the issue and they say they will refund us. Lastly, on our day of check out the worker at the front desk acts like everything is good and nothing wrong in their part. Almost like he didn’t want to admit fault. All and all I will never stay at a la Quinta again and never go to that hotel.

I am sorry and alarmed to hear of these issues you seemed to experience during your stay. Many of the issues you had experienced have never been reported or mentioned ever before. I have spoken with my staff and none of them seem to recall these concerns. Please contact us as soon as possible so we may review what happened during your stay and find a solution together. Thank you and safe travels. -Jesse S.

No bathroom ventilation made our visit a real stinker. The telephone reservation person raved about how the hotel had been recently remodeled and renovated, but how in the world can “remodeling” not include a bathroom fan?

Thank you for your feedback. All of our bathrooms do have ventilation, what is different is that instead of the noisy fan that most people are used to in their home our ventilation sucks out air in stead of just blowing it around. This operation is silent but each ventilation system is in the upper wall of each bathroom and is in plain sight. Over the last year we have gone through a major renovation. This renovation included the exterior and all areas of the interior. We are so sorry that you did not fully enjoy your stay. Safe travels!

I was appalled at the complete lack of guest helpfulness at La Quinta. OUr AC didn't work, they assigned our room to another guest and that guest entered our room at midnight scaring the heck out of us!

We were there for a birthday party at another location for our Grandson. The water park which is attached is such a great place for children and adults to enjoy. Seemed a little spendy at the time, but after we were done felt it was well worth the money. It is nice they offer bracelets for the ones that aren't swimming so they can sit ant the tables and observe and visit. When we went to breakfast the next morning, there was no food left (at 0830) so we went to Perkins to eat which is in the same parking lot. Overall we had a great time.

Thank you for your feedback. We are pleased that you enjoyed your stay. We did touch base with the breakfast team to ensure that breakfast running low does not happen again. Our breakfast does run from 6:30am to 9:30am daily. When speaking with breakfast team breakfast was replenished and was running until 9:30am. We are pleased that you were able to take advantage of the amenities offered within the resort and wish you safe travels.
