A good location, easy access to highway but still away from highway. Great area to take a walk. Easy to get to gas station and food. Being a dietitian I was very impressed with the fact that who ever makes the breakfast knows how to cook hard cooked (not boiled) eggs. Finally.

We checked in late and the night staff was VERY friendly and helpful. We had our dog along, so were thrilled to find a hotel that is dog-friendly. There were many other dogs staying there while we were there, making for good conversation with other guests and the staff. Hotel was clean. Location is right by main highways, a few restaurants, and gas station. "Room service" is available (not actually food made on site, but still brought right to our room). Only sleep issues we had was hearing some people opening/closing their doors. Also, because we checked in at night, the room was hot and it took awhile to cool it down for sleeping. Then, of course we woke during the night too cold. Nice pool and hot tub, plus work out room. Smoking is allowed in some areas, so it can get smokey, especially right by the front door. Overall, we had a great trip and were thrilled to bring our dog and that they were so welcoming of our dog.

We needed a dog-friendly hotel that wouldn't charge us a lot for that aspect. We also wanted the free breakfast, pool, etc. that this mid-range hotel offers. Overall, on the dog front it worked out well. They didn't charge us a non-refundable deposit or anything. But otherwise, the hotel was a disappointment. The check-in process was almost comical it was so bad. Get your room assignment. Both keys didn't work. Clerk admitted his error. Go back to room. Discover that it smelled very smoky (we requested a non-smoking room). Go back. Clerk said that it was a non-smoking room, but "sometimes people still smoke." But do cleaning people not notice or just fail to do something about that? Get assigned a new room (same bed arrangement, but without the fridge and microwave we requested). Go back. Both keys didn't work. Clerk admits another card error. Sheesh. Later that night he said that he took 10% off our rate. Oh, and the breakfast was pretty lame.

We travel often with our dog and stay in La Quinta's frequently. This one has smaller than usual rooms and postage stamp size towels (that were immaculate). It was busy and filled with families who sprawled in the halls and took over the breakfast area all times of the day with pizza and snacks enough to make it look like a pigsty. Not sure what the staff could do, but doing nothing was their choice. The bed was good, there was plenty of hot water and it was thankfully cool. the bathroom could do with less hair on the floor. For the money, if you do not have a dog, I think there are better choices locally. La Quinta's are usually better than this, so don't let this one spoil them all for you.

We stayed here for 4 nights. We have stayed at this hotel in the past, but will not be returning. We asked for clean towels while we were out for the day. We got our towels, but we alos had money and pain meds taken form the room. We assume it was housekeeping, because the master key was the only other key used to open our room while we were away.
We reported this to management. They were very understanding given the circumstances. After reporting the theft, my husband got into the shower and I walked down to visit with family staying in another room. When I returned to my room, I opened the door and stepped on the money clip that was taken. It had been slid under our room door with the money in it. I let the desk know that the money was returned. However, I'm sure the pain meds were sold to the riff-raff that was hanging around the back entrance to the hotel.
We will not be staying at this particular La Quinta again.

Room Tip: Keep your Do Not Disturb sign on the door. The staff is not to be trusted.

This was one of the best experiences I've ever had at a motel. Friendly and helpful service upon check-in (when I had no reservation). I've stayed at La Quinta in the past and really like their pet friendly relationship with the public. I received the military discount rate for my prior service and was also given an upgrade!! Awesome!! I will keep staying at La Quinta and will keep this particular site in my GPS as a regular stop.
