La Quinta Inn & Suites Hickory
Ranked #1 of 4 Hotels in Conover
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed September 5, 2011

We (my cats and I) stayed here for 4 wonderful nights.

Physically, the hotel is beautiful. Everything is very modern and tasteful. The hotel is immaculately maintained. The beds are very comfortable. I am very spoiled when it comes to beds and I enjoyed every minute of sleep here. According to housekeeping they change ALL the bedding after every guest (sadly this is not true of some other hotels). The air conditioning system in each room seems pretty new and there is a sensor across the room so that the room cools evenly. Each room has a microwave and a small refrigerator with freezer.

The front desk staff is wonderfully friendly. Kyle works in the afternoons and he is very knowledgeable of the area whether you need a nice restaurant, pet supplies or a grocery store. Actually, all the staff is incredibly friendly and helpful.

The breakfast is delicious. The made-to-order omelets are yummy. The biscuits were fluffy, the gravy was delicious and the potatoes were well-seasoned. I was also able to get fresh fruit every day. There is also a selection of fresh baked goods, cold cereals, make-your-own-waffles and hot & cold beverages.

The hotel had a nice-looking pool and a workout room. I didn't try either but they seemed to be in excellent condition. There is also a seafood restaurant attached to the hotel that is extremely popular.
I can't wait to stay with them again. This hotel should be a flagship for the La Quinta chain. Mr. Patel, you should be very proud of the people working for you.

Room Tip: Not every floor has an ice machine so get a room on one of the floors that does.

Could not believe the exceptional quality of the staff, the rooms and the cleanliness of this hotel. I am extremely happy that customer service and satisfaction still stand for something in the USA and in Conover of all places. I know this area and call it home and must say theres not another like it from Morganton to Charlotte. From the time you arrive until the time you leave you will be taken care of. I highly recom mend a suite as they are superb. If I had a complaint, and I absilutely do not, I would wish the bathroom in a suite to be connected to the bedroom and not the living room. Very minor and not a problem AT ALL. Great establishment and if you come to this area and stay somewhere else, YOUR LOSS

Just by walking into the spacious, bright and clean lobby we knew we had found a gem. We were looking for a pet friendly place and sure found one that is people friendly too. Front desk manager, Kyle, was cordial, friendly and helpful with directions. King room was spacious and very comfortable and clean. Attached restaurant, the Harbour Inn, was good seafood and reasonably priced so we never had to leave the site. And the BREAKFAST! Best ever! Omlets made to order with all the fixings and anything else you might want. Very large, clean and inviting pool. We drove cross country this summer and stayed in a lot of motels - this one is A+++.

We needed a hotel that was dog friendly. This was definitely it. Very clean rooms, lobby and pool area. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The Oyster Bar was also a fun local pub. We would stay there again.

We went and visited the hotel looking to host a 200 person retreat there. The staff at the front desk was so nice, we looked at the rooms and they were extremely clean. We had fallen in love with the hotel to host our event... but the group sales manager was not helpful in working with our budget nor enjoyable to work with. We felt like he wasn't even interested in our business or trying to accommodate us. Because of that, sadly we didn't host our event there.

We have found that all the employees we encountered to be very friendly and helpful. The breakfast is wonderful, lots of choices. We will definetly be staying here again when we visit our son, the next 4 years.
