“Very Good Value”
Reviewed April 16, 2012

Overall this hotel offered a great value with beautiful accomodations. Our only complaints are:
1. They allow pets and we were rudely awakened by a barking dog,
2. An over crowded pool area with screeming & splashing children, temperature in hot tub not set high enough (listed at 84 degrees).
3. No shuttle service to Kings Dominion.
We can deal with the wild kids and no shuttle, however allowing animals would be reason for us not to come back as both of us are allergic to many types of animals. We didn't know that pets were allowed when we booked the trip.

Room Tip: Ask where dogs are kept before booking room.

Among the La Quinta Inns we have stayed, this hotel was particularly well appointed and well managed. Staff were all very friendly and attentive. Room was large, clean and comfortable. We appreciated a soak in the hot tub after a long day of driving. When we stayed, the King's Dominion theme park adjacent was still closed for the season, so it was very quiet in the immediate neighborhood. There weren't a lot of choices for eating in the area - a Burger King, a convenience store, but I think that there were more food options in a town nearby maybe ten or twelve minutes drive. We had a very comfortable night and were glad to have chosen this spot for an overnight on a two day drive home.

We picked this hotel for the weekend of April 7th based on our experience with the La Quinta at Virginia Beach a few years ago. It's a pretty small building, only 3 floors, just like the Country Inn and Suites and Days Inn situated all around the same parking lot next to it. Loved the room, comfortable beds and nice decor and paint scheme. There's a great desk for work, and LCD tv, microwave (clean), and fridge, and a sleeper sofa and a nice marble shelf above the sofa for storing extra things. Plenty of outlets for charging electronics, and lots of seating space was great since there were two adults and 3 kids in the room.

We all enjoyed the indoor pool, and the quality FREE breakfast every morning. The hotel is very neat, with a very modern lobby, clean hallways with plush carpeting, and a nice eating lounge with flat screen tv.

But the BEST part of this hotel, in addition to being right across the street from Kings Dominion, and having pretty low rates, is the STAFF. From checking in to checking out, I felt like I was among family. There were a few things that went awry: hot tub wasn't turned on, and immediately a front desk person apologized, and went into the machine room to make it work. If something ran low during breakfast, they immediately replaced it, and when they couldn't replace the sausage because the delivery truck was delayed, they apologized and got on the phone again with their food service company. They were helpful with a lot of information about the area, as well. The SERVICE here is EXCELLENT! I would go back again just based on that.

Thanks La Quinta!

Situated within spitting distance of amusement park, and as with other local hotels, isolated from any grocery stores or - well, actually, ANYTHING else. The hotel was comfortable and clean, the room was spacious, with very high ceilings on the main floor. Comfortable bed. Quiet. Very decent indoor pool. Fitness room with weights, treadmill and elliptical. Decent breakfast. Lobby has a personality which is so wonderful for La Quintas - a fireplace and some decorations. In off-season (when I visited), when amusement park is closed, rates are fantastic value and place is not that busy. Expect thousands of children when in-season.

I have stayed at many La Quintas and I love them. The rooms are large and and beds are usually quite cozy. This property is old(er) and is very conveniently located to Kings Dominion. Its right across the street. However I rated this hotel a 3 star because it needs a bit of updating and a darn good "SPRING CLEANING". Its not a filthy hotel but I noticed a few dust bunnies and Irish Lace in the corners of my room. The shower was in need of a bit of new grout but clean. Beds were a little on the firm side for me, but I have slept on worse and paid alot more. We had a military discount and our cost was $57.99. It has free internet and a full breakfast. The sign out frot said Now open... which makes me think they may have started some renovations but IDK. I would probably stay here again

Very nice, clean and spacious room. Comfortable bed and bedding. Decent free breakfast,
Reasonable rate. Very pleasant staff.

Only drawback was there weren't many dining options close by -- only Burger King and Denny's.
(other restaurants were at least 6 miles away)
