"Great for the price and convenience"
4 of 5 stars Reviewed Jul 22, 2014

This was our second stay at this hotel as it is half way between where we were and where we are going. It is clean, staff is very friendly and accommodating, free breakfast is adequate to get you on the road, and the bed is comfortable. The room was quiet and easy to get to on the first floor. We had a coupon which was honored and reduced the room price by approx. $20. The bath was small but workable. There is a Cracker Barrel restaurant within a short walk, so this hotel is a viable stop during travels and we will be stopping again.

"My first La Quinta Inn"
5 of 5 stars Reviewed Jul 19, 2014

This was the first La Quinta hotel that I had ever stayed in and it will not be the last. I belong to their rewards program and sometime ago I received an email from them and I thought I would give them a try. My GPS had stopped working properly, so I had to drive to the hotel by a state map and instinct. I had not printed out any online maps for alternative directions. We got to the hotel a little after 6, I was a little fearful that my reservations had been canceled since the reservation stated that you needed to do so before 6. I had been driving all day and out in the very out sun exploring family cemeteries and I was just ready to get out of the car and relax a little. I really did not like the design of the parking lot, we had to pull up to the side of the building to unload before finding a place to park far from our room. They had the air conditioner running which I was really appreciative of. The furniture was just beautiful and looked brand new, and the beds were super comfy. I had the best nights sleep! We had an ADA accessible room on the first floor. It was at the end of a hallway near an emergency exit. The bathroom was equipped with a standing shower with hand rails and a seat. The hotel also had a pool which I was prepared to use, but didn't. There wasn't time and it was way too crowded. I believe that this hotel is a popular stopping point to and from Florida. This weekend it was sold out and they had to put a no vacancy sign on the door. The only problems that I had were with the parking lot, and there were no outlets near the work desk where I needed to plug in my laptop. When I was checking out, Cynthia at the front desk told me that the hotel was built in the 60's and is around 40 years old. Knowing that I really cannot complain much.

"Needs Update"
3 of 5 stars Reviewed Jul 13, 2014
Some rooms have new furniture and vanities but doors, and hallways need a major renovation. The room was clean but beds had no mattress pads, wall outlets were all loose and wiggled if you plug anything in to them. No mirrors except in the bathroom. Breakfast was typical continental. On a good note the front desk were all wonderful and very helpful.

Nice clean room, comfortable bed, air worked and was quiet, the hotel in general was quiet. I only encountered two employees but both were polite and knowledgeable. I was there for four nights and have no complaints.
