“Finally a comfortable bed”
Reviewed April 19, 2013

Finally a room with a bed not made by Fred Flintstone--hard as a rock. And the cost of the room was not a mortgage payment. A beautiful lobby with an attractive outdoor presentation. Four quibbles: no safety bar in bathtub; no safety mat in bathtub; room had one bedside table--for second queen bed had to use the seat of a chair for a table--no reading lamp for second bed. Lastly, NO WORK LIGHT ON OR NEAR DESK. i carry a book light so I could make do. Despite these objections, I do recommend staying here.

I have two main problems with this hotel. 1) The walls must be paper thin as you can hear every door shutting up and down the hall, as well as various other noises from adjoining rooms. 2) The "hot" water is luke warm at best. Other than that, the rest of the hotel is just OK. The decor was somewhat dated, but the room was large, and the bed comfortable enough. The AC/heating unit kept the room comfy and the TV selections were decent. The majority of the restaurants were about 3 miles away, but easy to get to. This would not be a place that I would want to stay at again, mainly because of the noise. I did not get a very restful sleep.

Room Tip: Get a room away from an exit so you don't hear the door slamming all the time.

We traveled for the first time with our 140 lb English Mastiff and we had a good experience. The room did not smell of previous pet stays and it was a nice surprise that there was no evidence of them in the room either. We will stay again! Very nice staff and helpful.

I chose LaQuinta Inns for our trip because we travel with our 2 dogs and they do take pets without charge, which I think is a fantastic thing. The first 2 we stayed in were wonderful. Clean, bright and had very pleasant staff. This one, however, needs some help. The front desk person had to be summoned by phone to check us in- at 3pm in the afternoon. The carpets need a good cleaning or replacement. The bed skirt on one bed had been sucked up by the vacuum cleaner and was dirty and ripped. Instead of the new beds and bedding that seems to be standard in the inns, this was the old polyester bedspread folded back to look like the new ones. The breakfast area was reasonably clean except for the mini--blinds which were dirty and stained. The walls of the room are so thin I could hear the person in the next room snoring. I hope renovation plans are in the works for this inn. It's on my do not return to list....

Hotel is a dive, non smoking rooms smell like smoke, room was gloomy and smelled like some had just used the bathroom, manager runs hotel like a slum lord. Carpets are filthy. I would not stay there. Should be a motel. Manager offered to rid room of cigarette smoke with a generic brand of lysol, lied and said not more rooms were available until I called hotels.com. The conditions were not acceptable to stay.

Room Tip: Rooms at another hotel are best.

As usual, we find La Quinta to be have nice rooms, good desk service, good breakfast, and other amenities such as microwave and refrigerator, an exercise room and laundry. The bed was comfortable, internet easily accessible. The only drawback of the location was that regular restaurants (not fast food places) are about 3.5 miles away, as are grocery stores if you plan to eat in room.
