"Great place to stay"
Reviewed Mar 1, 2014

Both times I stayed was because of surgery next door at The Emory Spinal Center. The rooms were clean and the temperature was set nice, no cold room to wait for the heater to come on like another place around the corner. My wife enjoyed the breakfast (wish i could have). We took an apple with us and they were good as I had mine after surgery. We will be back next week to stay again.
The attendant working that night was amazing. Huge shout out to him for the way he dealt with a very difficult customer (at 3am) as we were walking in! Very impressed with his service. The rooms were very clean and they were very comfortable. We always stay at La Quinta, and this is the reason why!

A little background is necessary for this review as a lot of disparate events fell into alignment.
My daughter and I always do a "Mommy & Babykins Road Trip" whenever the United States Air Force sends her somewhere for more than two weeks. This time, we were heading, again, to Maxwell Air Force Base, Montgomery, Ala. The last time we drove to Maxwell, we toured Charleston and Savannah on our way. We decided if we headed that way again, we were going to spend three days in Atlanta (neither of us had ever been there). We planned all kinds of tours, plus a special reunion with a friend I hadn't seen since 1979 (we were going to sit in on his band's practice -- check out BolderMonkey if you ever get a chance!). That's event #1 -- why we were going.
Part of our planning was making a hotel reservation for three days in ATL. Savannah originally booked us elsewhere, but then I found this La Quinta for a much better price and in a better location. That's event #2.
My husband, against my better judgment, scheduled outpatient surgery for the day before I was leaving for the trip. He assured me that would be OK, but he had a rare post-op complication, which delayed our departure by about eight hours (we didn't leave until we were absolutely sure he was going to be OK). Event #3.
These three converged with event #4. On our way down to ATL from Central PA (we were driving straight through) on Tuesday, January 28, Savannah called to remind the hotel that we would be a late check in. No problem! Around North Carolina, we hit snow. No biggie for us. As we got closer to Georgia, we began hearing about the ice storm and switched to news radio. The reports we were hearing were frightening, but we wrote it off to folks in the south aren't used to driving in northeast-style winter weather (no offense to any of the fine folks in the south). A couple hours later, the hotel called again to reconfirm that we were on our way; we certainly were! We anticipated our arrival around 11 p.m. - 12 a.m. Then we hit the outskirts of ATL and the Icepocalypse! It took us 2-1/2 hours to drive 50 miles on a solid, sheet of ice. Even northerners would have had a hard time driving in that, plus dodging cars, trucks, and buses that had spun out, been abandoned or wrecked (overturned in ditches, through fences on embankments, etc.). We finally got to our exit and there were like five tractor trailer trucks and buses overturned or spun out on the north side of I-85 right in front of the access road to our hotel. It was surreal. Just getting off I-85S and the last half mile to the hotel was a challenge (thank the Gods for Savannah's military driving training when she was a cop). It's now close to 3 a.m.
We saw the swarm of people before we even got into the hotel lobby. There were folks camped out on chairs, on luggage racks, sleeping with their heads on the lobby tables. We made our way to the front desk where we were greeted by Anthony, who would become our buddy over the next two days. The manager had told the staff to hold all confirmed rooms, including ours. We still had a place to stay!
Even though i only had a couple hours of sleep, I got up early to see what time the breakfast bar was open until. Anthony was still there (he couldn't leave and no one could get there to relieve him as the roads had been closed) and he assured me that he would continue putting breakfast food out as long as people were hungry. The lobby was still full with folks who didn't have a room, but everyone seemed in good spirits considering.
We realized that morning that if event #3 hadn't happened, we would have been stuck on the ATL highways during the worst of the storm and traffic jam. We also found out that day that Anthony is a huge Steelers fan (Steelers Nation always finds each other). I'm not sure how many hours straight Anthony worked -- he had to be exhausted, yet he did everything with a smile. We ended up being "iced in" for 2-1/2 days. By Thursday, Freya (another great staff member) was working and she was just a nice and helpful as Anthony.
Because we knew they were understaffed (travel around ATL was still treacherous), we didn't request housekeeping on any of the days we were there. There were few downsides to staying there during the Icepocalypse. Savannah and I worked out in the gym each day. We didn't get the microfridge that we requested, but we were so thankful for a room and the exceptional hospitality, that we didn't say anything. Also, I am allergic to mold and the shower curtain was covered with it along the bottom on one end. Again, we knew the housekeeping staff was swamped, so we just dealt with it. Under normal circumstances, I would definitely have asked that it be changed, but in this case, my allergies were the least of my worries. We were within walking distance to convenience stores and restaurants (the Landmark Diner was yummy!) that remained open (some of the workers had been there straight through). The only other downside was that the walls must be very thin or our neighbor was exceptionally loud and pissed off. Couldn't tell what he was saying (in another language), but he was loud and aggravated and we could hear it all. Keep that in mind if you are staying there as a couple (wink, wink). We finally got to meet up with my friend on Thursday night and sit in on an acoustic set with him and another guitarist from his band. Friday morning we got on our way and considered ourselves most fortunate that this La Quinta was where we ended up at for the 2014 ATL Icepocalypse. Great job, Anthony and Freya!
We were stuck. Snowed in. The staff went so far out of their way to accommodate everyone in this snow emergency. The breakfast bar, instead of closing at 9 as usual, was kept open all day. We couldn't have been treated any better. We now recommend La Quinta over all other motels and hotels. They really treat their guests like friends.
For the money you can't beat this hotel. It is located in a very safe area of town and is convenient to all of the attractions that you would want to visit in Atlanta. The staff is always courteous and helpful, and the rooms are clean. If you're visiting Atlanta, don't hesitate to try this hotel.
