My cousin and I had a room booked here as we were arriving late and didn't want to drive too far in the dark.
The first member of staff to greet us was very friendly and efficient. The room we had given however was not very good. There has obviously been a previous client who had ignored the no smoking rule and the room stank. There was some gadget running in the room, probably to try and get rid of the smell, but we didn't want to stay in it! As the phone wasn't working either, my cousin went downstairs to ask for a room change.
Number two person on reception did this for us and our second room was much nicer. Clean, good channels on TV and plenty big enough with two double beds for us.
We did ask at reception where we might eat and were told there were plenty of places on the road outside. After searching for ages we found nothing suitable and ended up in the garage over the road. After choosing a few snacks, the girl at the counter there told us we needed to drive back out and past the airport to find the restaurants. Shame La Quinta didn't tell us that.
The breakfast in the morning was really decent. A good selection of cold things and coffee on the go. I used the microwave to heat water and had my own t bags, so if you prefer tea, take your own.
All in all a decent one night stay. The hotel was not as clean in the corridors as I would have liked, but the staff were great and we got a great deal on the price.
