Great hotel and great service, highly recommend. great location in proximity to fairgrounds and highway. would stay here just as a small getaway. very clean, very quiet. staff is awesome. stores are close by as well as a waffle house and a fives guys. several great pizza places that deliver as well
My stay here was great. I have to point out that all hotels have problems but Maddie at the front desk took excellent care of us.
The first room was great except the toilet backed up. She immediately moved us to another room.
I had some leftovers from Thanksgiving dinner but forgot plastic forks so at 11 PM she gladly gave me some.
I wanted to extend my stay another night and figured my rate would stay the same. When I noticed I was charged $30 more for the extra night I went downstairs and asked about it. Maddie checked my account, said my corporate discount was applied but she would see what she could do. I was ok with the extra amount if that was what the charge was supposed to be but she applied an extra discount and got the extra $30 off.
I have to say that I was impressed with the service and though there were issues with the first room I will gladly stay here again.

The hotel was nice, just a few things could be improved. I was there just to sleep and it served the purpose well. Breakfast looked good, but I did not have time to indulge. Near Hard Rock Casino a big plus.
La Quinta Inns are to be found in many locations where people may need lodging. Their reservation system online is user friendly and when calling about specific issues the representatives are most helpful. Every request asked for was handled correctly. The rooms were clean and well decorated, and had all the comforts of home. The breakfast always meets expectations. Having had experience in the field of hospitality, we tend to notice details, yet La Quinta Inns have been paying attention to those details regularly. We look forward to finding these Inns when ever and where ever we travel.
The staff was friendly.
The room was perfectly clean.
When I had a small issue, I called and got a solution right away.
There was plenty of seating at breakfast and my kids found plenty of things they liked to eat.
To reach the pool required a little bit of a walk to reach as it was not immediately connected to the building.
The fairgrounds are right across the street and extremely convenient!
