This was my first La Quinta experience & it exceeded my expectations in so many ways, I found it easier just to keep adding days and stay longer and longer! Initial plan was to be here about 10 days, to relax without stressing out that our new home had been delayed......
Location - For ease in getting around almost all areas of So Cal, the location could not be better.
Service - Great service from management to housekeeping are all great, attentive, accomodating, yet not intrusive.
Sleep Quality - XLNT Sleep - although located near freeway, airport, etc., the rooms inside seem virtually soundproof, especially if window is closed. And YES, to those who like fresh air, their windows actually slide open and shut VERY easily with multi-facted covering options to allow as much or as little light as one wants.
Good quality pillowtop mattresses are super comfy, all clean and seem new - thought I had the best but think I just might like theirs a little better. Linens always fresh with no sign of prior usage, clean, crisp and white, and great pillows!
Breakfast room and patio - Fresh belgian waffles continuously made. Although far from extravagant, there is enough variety with bagels, pastries, cereals, juices, etc. as well as fresh fruit and nuts that even picky me can find something more than palatable. Super convenient with good supply of current newspapers, teas, etc. to take with you.
Pool, jacuzzi and work out room are well tended, supplied and maintained and frequently used.
VALUE - XLNT value - to the degree that my stay extended MUCH longer than it should have, kind of started feeling like home. The convenience factor made it easier to keep extending my stay rather than rush to find alternative permanent home.
NOT SO GOOD - the condition of the asphalt in the side and back parking area could be better, front is fine so perhaps they are in process of upgrading/refinishing the back.
Bathtubs - I only like porcelain tubs and wouldn't use theirs, but 99% of the population would be happy with them, size is okay, water pressure good and always LOTS of VERY HOT water for those who like a looong hot shower.
I've don't leave comments on cards, never written a review, don't have time to "blog", "twitter", "facebook", "vine", "elink' etc. but was so pleasantly surprised with overall experience, thought it would be a disservice to not let others know.
