My husband and I just returned from a 4 night stay at this La Quinta location. Because we were going to the Phillies spring training game the location was perfect. (It is literally 700 steps away from the ballpark) All the hotels in this area are on a service road and are a bit tricky to get to...but not hard once you get the hang of the road system. Area is convenient to many fast food and chain restaurants within a mile or two.
The hotel is a bit older, well maintained with a nice sized clean room. There was a slight odor in the room which could be due to spraying for bugs, or the fact that they accept pets. Nice size bathroom area with a separate sink area. There was a great deal of closet space and a small refrigerator. Room was cleaned up daily and they did a great job.
The continental breakfast included bagels, toast, english muffins, donuts, muffins, oatmeal, waffles, many cereals, juice, milk coffee. The supplies are always kept well stocked and the staff member who runs the breakfast area is extremely efficient and very helpful!
The pool area and hot tub are great. There are many chairs around the heated pool which is located in the interior courtyard of the pool as is a large hot tub. If I had to do it again, I would ask for an interior room on the first floor so that you could walk right from the sliding door to the pool area. All rooms have an interior entrance door with and a sliding door to a very small deck or patio area (2 plastic chairs in this area). It was fully booked the entire time we were there, but we heard no exterior noise.
The hotel staff was very friendly and eager to please. The housekeeping staff found a bottle opener for my beverage, the front desk staff printed out our boarding passes for our flight, and the person in the breakfast area was great!
This is not a luxury hotel. It is not even an upscale or newer hotel. If, however, you would like a clean, comfortable, very reasonable priced, safe and friendly motel/hotel then give it a try.
