“LaQuinta Inn- The best !!!!”
Reviewed January 17, 2013

This is an amazing hotel. The staff goes out of their way to help. The rooms are in superior condition. Cleaner than clean, they appear to have been painted the day before you arrive. Everything is spotless! The exterior is perfect, with a courtyard that makes you want to sit outside for hours. They provide free transportation to and from the Mayo Clinic and/or hospital. This is a wonderful place to stay!!! I am grateful to everyone there who treats me like royalty when I stay there.

Room Tip: Just let the staff know what you like, and they will do their best to accommodate you.

I will post the negatives first to get them out of the way. First, the location. Shae is a busy street and does not allow U-turns. You do have to be a little creative to get to the suites which are located on the corner of Shae and the 101 beltway (not the fault of La Quinta). MY second complaint is the smell of smoke in the hallway (once). The building, as are most buildings now, is supposed to be smoke-free, but there was a heavy smell of cigar Saturday night.
Now for the positive. The staff was knowledgeable about the local area, with hints on where to eat, what are must-see locations, as well as where to shop for staples we were running out of (dog food, snacks, ect...) The rooms were well-furnished with ample space for two people and a dog (large). The cleaning staff was thorough and fast, turning our room around very efficiently. Numerous pet stations were well-stocked and located around the property to pick up after our dog. The grounds were well-maintained and clean. We had booked the room a few weeks in advance and the price was a good value. The suites are not the Radisson Suites, but then again, try getting your dog in the Radisson for free. For the price, this is a solid place to stay with a great location.

I was somewhat lured in by the incredibly strong reviews on this site, which made it seem almost like a poor man's resort. Although many of the complements -- about cleanliness, attention to detail, staff courtesy, etc. -- are totally valid, this is a budget property, no question. The biggest issue is that second hand smoke permeates the entire place, as far as I could tell. Certainly on our floor (second) it was pervasive. I couldn't smell it clearly in my room, but if you can smell it in the hall outside your room, you are certainly taking in carcinogens in your room as well. The health risks of second hand smoke are so clear that it sort of stuns me that any hotel would allow this.

I would love to see this otherwise strong property become completely smoke free, which I think would increase business overall.

I would also, with no disrespect intended to the management or staff, observe that the reviews give a somewhat distorted picture of this being an incredible diamond in the rough. It is fine for what it is, but I ended up leaving for a resort that charged me just $25 more a night.

We stayed here for a wedding we were attending in the area.

The Bad: The only thing I did hear was in the morning, the cleaning staff was yelling back and forth at each other in the hall. Our keys were only made for 2 of the 3 nights we made our reservations for, so of course we went shopping and had our hands full only to find out we couldn't get in the side door and into our room. The side door key reader, when our keys were working, wouldn't work right away. We would have to swipe our key about 3 times before it would work. Also, the floors are not completely non-smoking, and the room next door was a smoking room.

The Good: I have to say that the location was very convenient! Half the time we didn't even need to use the car. We were able to walk to restaurants and stores conveniently. I'm a stickler about hotels and noise. Even though we were close to the 101 and our room overlooked a car wash and gas station, we couldn't hear a thing! The staff was friendly, and the place was really clean! I loved the layout of the room. The bed was comfy, and we had lots of channels on the TV. We also had a desk area with an extra chair that we were able to sit at and enjoy coffee together in the morning, which was an added bonus! The tub and shower was huge, and we had an easy chair in the room too.

I was very satisfied with this hotel, and to me it was nicer than some of the other La Quinta's we have stayed at, with the exception of the smoking room next door.

We didn't feel that this property lived up to our expectations based on the other reviews on this site and on our previous experience with the La Quinta chain. On the plus side, the room was clean and comfortable. The hotel is right next to the freeway, so noise is a bit of a problem, although we managed to mask it by running the fan at high speed. The hotel breakfast is adequate but nothing special (unless you consider a waffle maker "special"). Our biggest complaint has to do with the smell of cigarette smoke throughout the corridors, lobby, and around the hotel exit/entry doors. The smell did not seem to have penetrated the rooms (at least, not ours), but it hits you the minute you open the door. Another problem has to do with the hotel's location on Shea Boulevard. Shea has to be one of the busiest streets in the area, and getting out of the hotel drive onto it was quite a challenge. Finally, we booked the room online for one night at a rate of $53, a truly good value. When we arrived, I asked at the desk for a second night but had to pay $67. Still not a bad price, but we felt it might be better policy to offer the same rate as the booking rate for additional nights. Just something to create a more positive feeling. As it stands, we will be looking for other properties for our next visit in February.

Room Tip: Try to stay on the side furthest away from the Highway 101.
