Good friendly and efficient place for business or vacation stop. Fireplace in lobby. Free cookies and papers at reception. Clean nicely furnished rooms. Only complaint is there was some noise from the pool.
Convenient to Salmon Creek Legacy Hospital and Salmon Creek Plastic Surgery. One block to the freeway with easy access to Vancouver and Portland...but no noise from freeway that I noticed. Huge Fred Meyer Superstore immediately behind hotel is a major plus for family travel. Several franchise and independent restaurants within minutes, Parking lot is a little tight and gets puddles!
I have been on this hotel for 3 nights. I was on vacation and we intended to visit both Portland and Mount Saint Helens. This location was great. Really easy to access the highway to Portland and get there in about 15 minutes. And just 1 hour from Mount Saint Helens. The staff was really friendly the whole time. The room was huge, the TV was new, the beds are very comfortable. Breakfast is the standard La Quinta with some additional hot items and fruits. I really enjoyed my stay there. And the price was great for a hotel like that.
During our recent visit to Vancouver we wanted a peaceful stay, so after looking online we decided to try LaQuinta because of the "great beds & staff" well sad to say the only part of that was true. The beds were great but the noise level from the pool room at quiet hours was extreme. When the staff finally moved the youth from the pool it was to the open dining room and lobby. Does the staff not know that sound travels even better in open spaces? When I went to go talk to the staff about the noise no one was at the front desk and I waited for 10 minutes, talk about poor staff, not to mention how unsafe I felt knowing staff was nowhere to be found. It states family friendly when it should state wild party friendly.
This La Quinta has a lot to offer especially in its location. At the juncture of I-5 and I-205, you can be anywhere in the SW Washington area in a matter of minutes. Transport to the PDX airport is likewise 10-15 mins drive time. Made the trip a whole bunch more pleasant without all the long-distance driving sometimes required to get anywhere.
