We chose LaQuinta for their pet friendly policies. This particular hotel must be relatively new and all areas are clean and well maintained. The room was spacious and quiet. Wifi was a breeze to access. Breakfast serving area was spacious and clean, the food was nothing special but met our needs. I wish there had been something more to offer at the particular exit off the highway - like a decent cup of coffee -- but oh well.
A really good value. All aspects were great. The motel is attractive, parking is near, staff was friendly and helpful, room was very nice and clean, and the continental breakfast had all sorts of items (waffles, eggs, fruit, etc.). Frankly, this is one chain that I'll be looking for when planning future trips. It is dog friendly, but you would never know it.
was great before new management now poor breakfast only fruit was moldy oranges no eggs no meat just dried out biscuits and crusty dry gravy I think was terrible dogs barking internet not working washroom near front desk filthy
Stayed here two nights and was happy with the hotel. It is clean and nicely appointed. Breakfast was kind of disappointing, it was mostly bread, make your own waffles, and more bread. Overall I get the feeling that this La Quinta is trying be a Hampton Inn or Marriott but falling a little short of the mark. But overall it's a good hotel and I would stay here again.
Priceline room, couldn't change after we found room was in a hallway next to Coke/Ice machine and large garbage can. No casino $ - said they stopped offering this - but sign outside clearly stated "stay and "play". Pool cloudy - needed chlorine. Food for breakfast was good - very clean and woman working there Sunday 8/24/14 was very professional. We felt that because we reserved/paid for our room via Priceline we were stuck in the room (#315) with no consideration of our concerns. So we don't know if we were charged for the safe in our room because no one knew the answer, we don't know why we couldn't get another room because of our concern about the noise/garbage. After we told the front desk about the scrolling advertisement about "stay" and "Play" it was turned off. Sure enough Sunday AM - information was scrolling falsely advertising the casino money. Any questions we were told to contact "Priceline" - seriously?? You can't tell us if there is another room we can move to? We didn't ask for upgrade - just another room. You couldn't tell us why there was no stay and play information? Most businesses train their staff to say I am sorry I don't have the answer but I will find out for you and get back to you. Nothing was offered. Told Priceline not to use/recommend this hotel because no one seemed to care and kept referencing "priceline". Poor customer service.
