"Always have to move rooms"
Reviewed Mar 6, 2014
APMontreal | Montreal, Canada
This is the third time I have booked with La Quinta that I have had to move rooms. I always ask for a quiet location away from vending machines and doors in a non smoking room. Again this past weekend, I went down there with my family and was given a room that was near the vending machines and that reeked of cigarette smoke. The whole corridor stunk of smoke! The bedroom was un-breathable! I called down to the front desk and we had to truck our three suitcases and shopping bags back down to the lobby to get a new room assigned. I asked him why he hadn't just assigned us the quieter, smoke free room to begin with, without all this hassle we had to go through?! Our second room was quieter as long as no one banged the Fire-doors closed , and it was smoke free. It was clean and smelled fine. But we did have to wait three hours for the extra pillows that I had requested over the phone when booking the room a week earlier, and which should have been already set up in our first room. Other than that, the rest of our stay was fine. The breakfast was decent.
we visited Burlington from the march 2nd to 4th 2014.we did not have a reservation.we paid 187.00 for 2 nights.we loved that place,it is clean and the breakfast is plentyfull with waffles and toasts,bagel,fresh fruits etc,it is close to everything.the staff is very friendly.we will return there next time we feel like shopping,we find the people of Burlington very polite .it was very cold in that period.we had nice food on the church street promenade.we always go in summer but in winter it is a get-away to consider.we will be back soon.
Stayed at the LaQuinta Inn and Suites South Burlington for a 6 day vacation August of 2013.
I have experience with this chain so I knew what to expect. I knew that it would not be fancy
(in Burlington duiring the summer pay a small fortune for that perk) but it was perfect for my
vacation and sightseeing needs.
First, let me say that the staff was extremely freindly and helpful in every regard. I must single
out Debra the general manager who picked up at the airport on my arrival and drove me to same when I left - a much appreciated personal touch (airport transfers are included in the
stay). Debra and the other staff members hepled me with all manner of questions relating to
my trip, includung sightseeing, restaurants, transportation, etc. Likewise, housekeeping was
on the ball in keeping my room clean and well stocked daily. There was just one exception -
when I first arrived in my room after check-in I found a dead light bulb. When I called down to the front desk, Debra answered and offered to fix the problem herself - there is that personal
As to the room, I reserved a deluxe, which you should consider for stays loinger than a couple
of days. The advantage is that the deluxe has a roomy sitting area with a sofa and coffee table
(though the table was too close to the sofa to spread out your legs) as well as a micorwave and
refrigerator, good to store and reheat meals and snacks from Burlington's many restaurants and to store cold drinks, etc. The living area was separated from the sleeping area by a divider
which may serve as a shelf for personal items. The bed was a super comfortable king which
lulled me to sleep every night. There is also a radio (poor reception) and a large flatscreen TV on the dresser - I just wish there were more channels to choose from. But since I was out of the
room most of the day, this was not that big a deal. The bathroom was not fancy but clean and
well stocked with a excellent shower.A/C was powerful but mercifully quiet. As this is not a down-town location and the hotel fronts the main road to downtown and the airport (in the opposite direction), do not expect panoramic views, especially as the hotel is only three or four stories. My front-facing room looked out onto the main road (still very quiet, though) and the rooms out back overlook the pool and the residential neighborhood around the property.
I have read complaints regarding the breakfast, but it was fine for my needs and it is included
in the room rate. As mentioned, it consists of various pastries (muffins, bagels, danish, bread)
as well as coffee, tea and juice, but there are also do-it-yourself waffles and hard boiled eggs.
As I said this was fine for me to start the day, but if others wanted to go out for breakfast, there
are other options nearby, such as a McDonald's, a diner (forget the name) and the University
Center Mall, about a 10 to 15 minute walk away. The property also has a computer in the lobby.
As far as transportation goes, there is a bus which stops across the road from LaQuinta and
goes straight downtown (about 2 miles) via the mall. It goes past the University on the way down and arrives downtown in about 10 minutes. I never had to wait long for it, and at $1.25 per trip it is a great deal. For the trip back at night, I boarded at the central bus stop downtown off the top of Church Street and was back in the same amount of time. And let me tell you the buses are punctual! Unless you are doing a lot of exploring outside Burlington, I would not even consider a car unless it were absolutely necessary. Parking is at a premium and with a couple of exceptions, Burlington is a great walking town with most of what you want see and do within walking distance. There are lots great restaurants downtown as well as in the vicinity of the hotel, so this should not be an issue. The only sightseeing attractions not within walking distance of downtown (or the hotel) are 1) the Ethan Allen Homestead (take a cab) which is OK
but you won't miss much if you don't see it and 2) the Shelburne Museum, an outdoor museum
which is a recreation of a turn of the century New England village - do not miss this, no matter
how you go (the bus goes there but allow time). Otherwise, take a cab of rent a car for the day.
This one of the finest museums in the Northeast or anyhere in the country - trust me. Oh, and the museum admission is good for two days!
So, in sum, the LaQuinta South Burlington is a great place to relax and spend a few days in one
of the most beautiful and picturesque towns and area of the country. Sure you can spend pre-
mium prices for a high-end property downtown or closer, and if so that's your choice, but why would you? Personally, what I look for are comfortable, clean accomodations and a freindly staff
and this property delivers on all counts. I would certainly consider the LaQuinta if my travels ever take to Burlington in the future.
P.S. The airport is the most trouble free I have ever used. My flight arrived from NYC 45 minut-
es early and ny delarting flight lefr bang on time and arriver back in NYC just as early. Can't
vouch for the airport during the winter, but I am told my experience is typical for the summer.
Also, lots of great restaurants downtown, but one I wish to single out is August First Bakery and
Cafe downtown as a great reasonably priced place for tasty baked goods, sandwiches and
other goodies. And yes, the staff is very friendly. And at the risk of giog on and on, there is a
great barnes and Noble bookstore across from the Universit Center Mall, as well as several
charming independent bookstores downtown.
A former Holiday Inn, the LaQuinta is a low-moderate hotel. The rooms are weary, cleanliness is ok but lack luster. Close to UVM and the highway, it;s OK for 1-2 nights tops. Breakfast is pre packed muffins, plain coffee, juice. Plan to go get breakfast elsewhere - even the coffee chains.
The room was clean, staff was friendly. Breakfast was served too late in the morning for me to eat it, I work at 6am. It is close to everything, which made finding dinner an easy task. Overall the hotel was just fine, we had to stay while our condo was under renovations.
