“Best haven we could have hoped for!”
Reviewed March 25, 2013

My husband and I stopped in Bloomington rather than end up in a ditch in a winter storm. La Quinta was the first hotel we tried, and we couldn't have been happier. The room was neat, clean, and warm, and the staff could not have been more kind and accommodating. The breakfast was simple but warm and more varied than at other hotels we've stayed at on this trip. Trust me, the storm did not make us desperate to be content; we would have left if any of the conditions had been unacceptable, as there are several other hotels in easy distance. I would highly recommend this as a good, economical hotel, whether you're stranded or just vacationing.

I am here right now. Wreaks of old sweat and smoke. Filthy. There is scuz around the bathroom faucet. Screws all around the door (did someone try to break in or out??) One of the most disgusting places I've ever stayed. God save me!

The hotel was ok.

It was clean and no issues. Everything worked and the shower was warm. The breakfast area was clean however the waffle maker undercooks the batter and we both had to throw away our waffle. Nothing special on the breakfast with limited fresh items.

The hotel is located close to the interstate however the paking lot is not laid out well.

No pillow top beds like advertised. Room rate was increased from online price. Staff speaks broken English. Very loud doors slamming early morning. Breakfast just ok. Not good for buisness travelers... lights in room very DIM. Heat takes an hour to kick in. Not comfortable. Old TV's.

Room Tip: Away from public doors!

We stayed one night. Location good. Room okay but basic. Price was more than other locations. Breakfast play but limited choices. Cracker Barrel restaurant is walking distance so was nice after long day of driving.

We had booked the LaQuinta before I read the reviews as we were in Bloomington on business and this was the hotel that the organization we were with had recommended.

After reading some of the reviews I was really leary about staying here, but must admit that we were very pleasantly surprised. Our room, a king size, was spotless, and had all of the amenities that we could possibly need. The staff was friendly and most accommodating.

We stayed 2 nights, Feb 15 and 16, and had one of the best night's sleep we have had at any motel. My husband had only one complaint, the pillows were a little firm for him, but my pillows were perfect.

We will be back in Bloomington again this time next year and I will definitely stay at the LaQuinta.

Stayed at this hotel on Feb. 2, 2013. The desk clerk quoted me one price, when I hesitated, quoted me another price $10 less and emphasized it included breakfast. We took the room and it was fairly clean if you didn't look behind the night stands and refrigerator. Beds were not bad, not good, but just ok. Vending machines had been removed from the second floor. While in the room, we could very distinctly hear people talking softly in the halls. Room did include a desk area and stuffed chair. Breakfast was biscuits & gravy that they were almost out of, toast, waffles, dry cereal, mini muffins and fruit. However, they did not provide tongs to get your muffins, bread or biscuits. No tongs to get your waffle off the waffle machine. Juice machine had one place for water, one for orange juice and two that did not work. Would not stay at this hotel again.
