First of all I don't usually stay at other than Choice Hotels properties so I can't compare this to other La Quinta Inns. We stayed for the water park for the kids!
Considering the sheer amount of foot traffic of wet kids, adults, etc., I thought the hallway carpets were very clean. The room was clean, but in need of maintenance, e.g., several chipped/cracked floor tiles in bathroom, minor torn carpet, that sort of thing. The room was also on the small side for a 2-Queen room. The front desk was very busy the entire evening but had 2-3 people staffing it so the wait was not bad. In addition, staff were helpful and friendly. We did not stay for breakfast so can't rate that. First floor wireless internet was fine.
If you are thinking of this stay for only the water park you may want to consider purchasing the pass elsewhere. A few locals in the bar told me they sell passes in town cheaper than you can buy them there, even with the "hotel guest" discount - I did not confirm this.
The attached bar/restaurant is OK. We had appetizers there but not dinner. Menu seemed a bit pricey for what I saw other guests being served.
Book as early as possible. I booked about 6 weeks ahead and noticed the price went up about $30.00 a night. Front desk confirmed this - earlier you book (I used Travelocity) the cheaper.
