We have stayed here many times in the last year and the staff has always been extremely helpful. The rooms are very clean. This hotel is also pet friendly which our dog loves. The hotel is close to good restaurants and shopping. Only a couple of miles from Southpoint.
For the price, we couldn't beat it. The only reason a star was taken away was lack of nicer restaurants close and it was a little ways from Downtown Durham. We knew Research Park wasn't right in Durham, but figured traffic wouldn't be as bad as it was. The La Quinta was very friendly and helpful. The only thing I don't like about their hotels were the bathroom doors, very thin and almost open. I didn't mind this trip since I was on it with my boyfriend, but if I was with family or others I thought that was a little odd. Neither of us were 21 yet, so this was one of the few options in the Durham area that was of good quality.
Our stay at the La Quinta was pleasant and enjoyable. We had a nice, very large, room, and it was located next to an elevator. (Not the main one, however). As some other reviewers pointed out, the hotel is primarily geared towards business travelers, but it is also good for families or anyone wishing to make a quick stopover right off of I-40. The only downside we had to the hotel was the lobby simply because it was FREEZING! It is probably the coldest I have ever been in. However, the rooms themselves are not as cold.
The Inn was easily accessible, quiet and clean. My room was very comfortable with a pleasant view. The continental breakfast was simple but adequate .Service was professional and the staff were helpful . Great stay.
On the tv ads for La Quinta, aspiring business people are featured. This hotel was mainly full of truckers. They were all perfect gentlemen, but it was a bit off-putting walking through the main door to see half a dozen men, laughing, joking and drinking beer.
Breakfast was not pleasant as the dining area is by the front door. Guests were standing outside smoking so it was cold as the doors were automatically opened and the dining room stank of cigarette smoke as you ate. They seemed to have a guard on the breakfast. The member of staff didn't seem to do much in the way of cleaning and appeared intimidating.
The night staff and the day staff weren't interested in us as guests. They seem to be prepared to give out and collect keys, but not much else.
