This was our first time at this La Quinta, and I know that we will stay here again since it is so close to the hospital.
This hotel has the best blackout shades I have come across. They are pulldown and have tracks that keep them in place and keep the daylight out. If you want more blackout power, there is a roman shade that can be lowered over the original shade. It does such a great job that we almost slept thru the breakfast hours. There is also a ceiling fan over the bed for more comfortable sleeping, The bed pillows were wonderfully soft and comfortable, as was the chair in the room. There was even a lamp next to the chair for my crocheting comfort. The breakfast area is clean and there were enough tables and chairs for the guests to have a comfortable breakfast of waffles and cereal.
Now for my pet peeve...I hate the bathroom setup! The sink is in the hallway and there is no outlet in the toilet section for a nightlight. That means that I have to leave the door open if I have to use the facilities in the middle of the night...not optimal for a modest person. The other alternative is to use the facilities in the pitch dark...also not optimal. Whoever thought of this idea should be hung by his/her thumbs from the nearest yardarm. There is no way to shield the sleeping area from the light in the sink area, so sleepers are awaken each time the sink needs to be used. Not fair to the others in the family.
Again, we had no luggage racks, so we had to put the suitcases on the dresser and desk side table. I could not use my laptop on the desk because neither of the outlets on the lamp base were working. There was only one available outlet where I had plugged in my phone for charging and I had to swap out plugs to charge the laptop. You would think that there would be more outlets available since we are now in such an electronic based world.
As I said, I know we will stay here again. The hotel staff is friendly and very helpful, and the location is close to Jackson South hospital (only about 4 miles away). There are also several grocery stores and other shopping areas close by.
