My family of four (with two small kids) just completed our second stay at the La Quinta Everett; our first stay being last summer around the same time of year (August). For us, the main requirements are a clean room, simple breakfast included, and a reasonable level of personal safety. With Everett being located between Seattle and the Premium Outlets at Tulalip, and with the Imagine Childrens' Museum in Everett being a favorite place to visit for my kids, the location and the price makes this the best bang for the buck available. AAA/CAA rates available, and if you can get a room at the back of the hotel, you're set.
I can't speak for all the rooms, as we've only experienced two rooms ever during our stays. Both were reasonably well-equipped 2 Queen rooms, with the most recent one being located on the main floor just down the hall from the breakfast room. Other reviewers have complained about the noise; maybe we were lucky, or maybe the air conditioner's fan covered it all up, but noise was not a problem for us.
As for cleanliness... no matter what the brand or class of hotel, I always check the beds for signs of bedbugs these days, and found none. The bathroom was very clean, as were the bar fridge and microwave. The large flat-screen TV had a good signal (I've stayed in four- and five-star hotels where they cheap out on the TV signal!), and the free WiFi worked well throughout our one-night stay.
The breakfast room was busy in the morning, with the attendant constantly ensuring that everything was well-stocked. My kids love the do-it-yourself waffles, and the coffee is just the right strength. The little business center in one corner of the breakfast room makes it easy to print out anything you may have forgotten, and the front-desk staff are very helpful.
We have never tried the pool, and likely never will, so I can't speak to that either. Looking at the pool from outside the safety fence, it looks clean and well-maintained.
Overall, this La Quinta shows its age, but if you go in with the right expectations you should have an enjoyable stay.
Oh, one last thing... for those who have mentioned how the hotel is hard to find? Google Maps turn-by-turn directions get you right there.
