“Nice room rate”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 25, 2012

I only stayed for one night at La Quinta and it was based on the room rate, which was very affordable. It has been many years since I stayed at a La Quinta so I wasn't expecting to have a exterior door to the outside. Staff was pretty friendly during both check-in and check-out. The room seemed rather old especially the bathroom but it was overall clean. It had a large tv and wireless was free. The wifi was hard to connect and rather slow so I had a difficult time doing some work in the room. Moving to the lobby didn't improve the connection speed. Location was convenient to the highways and there are plenty of restaurants in the area.

We go to La Quinta's a lot and are usually very happy with accomadations. That said this one was a dissappointment - Although it has been somewhat updated, It is still and old facility. The thing that made me uncomfortable was that it is set up like a motel - which i didn't realize when i made the reservations. I don't like having the door to my room directly onto the parking lot, therefore I didn't sleep well. In additiona, maybe becasue it it a college town, their were folks partying into the evening, and throwing beer bottles in the garbage can outside my door. Which of course woke up my dog and I throughout the night and into the early morning. They didn't have the assortment of pillows found at the other La Quinta's either, or an area for a dog walk. Staff was friendly, and breakfast good. bottom line if you don't mind hard pillows, ask for a room that does not open to the parking lot you might be OK for a stopover while traveling.

We have stayed a LaQuinta hotels the last couple of years as we travel between Indiana & Florida. We've had a great experience each time. The room was clean, the beds were confortable, and the service was great! I will always stay at these hotels if possible.....no complaints!

This hotel is close to the interstate, there are two restaurants across the street. Great for a one night stop, not what you would want for an extended stay. They allow pets without additional charge.

During a recent trip to Gainesville we randomly stopped at the LaQuinta, mainly because of its location to where we needed to go. The rate was especially reasonable, the rooms very clean. The beds were also very comfortable. Breakfast was included in the price and there was a good variety. Overall, it was a greaty experience and I would highly recommend the place to all.

We were traveling and chose this location due to convenience to I-75. The hotel was clean and plenty big. The hotel provided breakfast which included mini waffles and muffins. We arrived quite late and left early. Hotel was quiet and the beds were comfy. Would not hesitate to stay again if in the area.
