My wife and I had occasion to travel on business to the area couple of times recently, and decided to stay here twice (once in August, and once again in November). By random chance, I lived in Ripon as a kid in the 80's and 90's, and it was neat to see how the town had changed--and how it hadn't.
But I digress. The Ripon La Quinta is easy on/off from the freeway (though confusing to get to the first time you visit), close to stores and shopping, and only 10 minutes either way from Manteca and Modesto and the amenities those communities offer. Staff is friendly, check-in is prompt, and it's nice and quiet despite CA-99 running just a few yards away. Breakfast is on par with the Salida location (where we usually stay), though I have a simple request: please keep the breakfast area open past 9 a.m. Nine is a little early for us to finish eating--10 a.m. or even 9:30 would be ideal.
We had a problem with a flickering light in the bathroom, but once we told the staff about it, the problem was quickly corrected. Also, the showerhead was a little confusing to figure out, but I don't remember having that problem last time so it could have just been a fluke.
We did use the spa--perfectly satisfactory. We would have done so again last week but it is out of commission for upgrades at the moment.
In a nutshell, for a one- or two-night stay, this place is great. (For our longer stays, we go down to Salida, owned and staffed by the same people and also a wonderful place to call home temporarily.)
