Frequently staying at La Quinta hotels I am not usually a fan of oddly shaped hotels like this property in Huntsville - they tend to look like very old hotels compared to the charming style of other newly built locations. However, after reading through the reviews of the other hotels in Huntsville, I decided to give this one a shot - on the low end of available room prices and at the upper end in more recent reviews, I was at least sceptical, assuming that something had to be wrong here.
Well, immediately after arrival I found myself proven wrong. While there is not really a front desk, it's more like a little closet to the right of the entrance, I quickly found myself in a room that combined old & new world of the La Quinta Franchise. The furniture itself was still the light-brown colored wood of the past LQ styles, while covers and blinds and everything else already appeared in the new red/green color scheme. There was a flatscreen TV, wireless internet, room was nicely cooled and clean. I have almost no complaints - having a room near University Drive, I noticed that the windows lack insulation. I could clearly hear traffic on the roads. Huntsville having a lot of military, people seemed to be getting up early so that the road was only quiet between 10 and 6. Soundproof windows would have been a great advantage here. But other than that I spent a good and restful night.
The property is located immediately on University Drive, Madison Square Mall is just a stone's throw away from the hotel. Driving up and down University Drive you can find a wide selection of full-service and fast food restaurants, all attractions and points of interest are within realistic driving distance.
I would not hesitate to recommend this hotel for a stay, at least for a night. It was quiet enough to get rest and yet central enough not to lack any amenities.
The only thing I didn't get after having stayed: how can Huntsville have so many La Quinta properties of so varying standards within close proximity - be careful and do not pick the wrong one...
