Over the course of several years, we have stayed at this hotel dozens of times and it has been a great experience...up until this year. New management seems inexperienced and very unfamiliar with normal upkeep. On our last visit in August, it appeared as if the housekeeper actually hadn't finished cleaning the suite. In the bathroom, the shower curtain was wound up around the rod and the toilet hadn't been cleaned from the previous guest (!). The room entrances have little recessed spot lights over them and the dust and hair on the carpet was very noticeable. The king bed was so sloppily made up, we wondered later if the maid had actually changed the sheets (not a good thing). We travel with a dog, but the couch had fur balls from the previous guest. The elevator carpet looked like it hadn't been vacuumed in many days. The glass entryways used to be spotless but looked like it had been quite a while since they saw any Windex. The doggy clean-up bags that used to be provided at the entrances (a really nice touch) have been gone for months, but the empty dispensers remain. The trash cans outside the side entrances are old and in desperate need of replacement. The little freezer in the suite had about two inches of frost build up, which obviously the housekeepers totally ignore (a few weeks earlier, the same thing in another suite). A lot of LQs have a bare bones breakfast selection, but Madison's has deteriorated considerably. Absolutely nothing hot unless you consider the "obligatory" do-it-yourself waffle. The coffee and juice areas were sloppy due to no apparent dining area attendant (and someone always was visibly present in the past).Except for a system-wide television up-grade, the hotel has had the same decore and furniture since it opened many years ago and some of the suites/rooms are clearly showing their age. One thing that remains consistently good is the front desk staff, especially at check-in. A young lady named Sarah is amazing at remembering guests. A couple years ago, Tripadvisor rated this hotel Number 1 in Madison...now it's 14. They still have La Quinta quality trophies on the front desk, but those are from the past. The hotel seems to change management rather frequently; perhaps better times will eventually return.
I loved this hotel for a couple of reasons... 1st, dogs stay free. Why hotels charge for a dog is beyond me. It's okay to ask the guest to leave a refundable deposit, but charging is ridiculous. Second, the convenience of location (I was traveling across the US), style of hotel, and outstanding customer service are all reasons I will stay again.
The only problem with our stay was that the pool wasn't open. Staff is excellent, rooms were nice and very clean. One of the beds needed a new mattress but we informed staff. Good location to shopping and restaurants. Easy and off the highway/interstate. Would recommended.
The pool was closed when we arrived, and when I mentioned at the front desk that our little girls were disappointed that they couldn't swim, we were immediately upgraded to a king suite with a jacuzzi! Our little ones were happy to swim in the tub and we loved the suite!
The La Quinta Inn was a pleasant surprise as an overnight stop on our way to Chicago. It was an easy, but quiet location off the interstate. The room was VERY spacious with a separate sitting area from the bedroom - very nice for my husband and I, as he is an early riser and could shut the door to the bedroom and watch TV and read the newspaper without waking me.
The only negative was the breakfast. It was very poor quality and they are not environmentally friendly with all of the disposable plates, bowls, cups and eating utensils. Most hotels make an effort to launder sheets & towels less, yet they continue to use paper and styrofoam for their breakfast serving goods. They only seem to want to be concerned about the environment when it saves them time, labor and money.
The breakfast area was nice and spacious however.
