"Weekend family trip"
3 of 5 stars Reviewed Jul 21, 2014

This was our second stay here. We enjoyed it last year and that is why we chose it again. We had a two double suite with sofa sleeper. We love the set up with a door for the bedroom, kitchen area and roomy bathroom. We only had four sets of towels for the five us and when my husband asked for more the next day the housekeeper would only give him four. We love the pool. The temperature is not too cold and kids love that it isn't too deep. Our biggest disappointment was our confusion on no hot breakfast. We thought last year there was. With three growing kids the hot breakfast is important to us. Upon checking out, the front desk informed us that the hot breakfast was taken away by corporate to cut costs. That is so unfortunate because I told the clerk we won't be staying there again unless there is hot breakfast.

"Dirty rooms"

Was told the rooms had just been cleaned. Got into our roon, the fridge was disgusting with stuff poured all over the inside, the microwave was gross, the carpet had not been vacuumed ...I found random towels in the drawers, and orange peel on the floor...just gross. The beds were made but we're so lumpy that I am certain my 5 year could have done better. Definitely will not stay at again.

We would highly recommend the LaQuinta Inns & Suites. The staff are very friendly and professional.. They are very willing to help with any questions and always make one feel at home. The price is very competitive. The accommodations are always kept in perfect condition. Where we traveled on our business trips, there was always a LaQuinta within a compfortable driving distance.

Booked the LaQuinta a year ago for the Goldwing Riders National Convention for July 2 through July 5th. Upon arrival our room was very nice a two room king suite, lots of counter spacein the sitting area and bathroom, the bed was very comfortable and we had two tv's. The pool area and hot tub were also very nice. On July 3rd the breakfast area was extremely crowded, restocking of items took quite a long time but eventually it was done. July 4th however was a different story, we arrived around 8:00 am and a lot of items were missing and found no one around that was restocking so we looked to the front desk only to find a sign saying "sorry" we will return shortly and during our entire breakfast did not see one hotel personnel at all. Upon our checkout we did bring this to the hotel staff and the gal said that she would check into it. Our only other issue was with the super slow hotel elevator. This hotel was on a very nice "quite" end of Madison. The only restaurant really close was Erin's Snugs Irish Pub which had exceptional food!

"A great place to stay"

We don't travel often and this was the 1st time with our dog. Both La Quinta's were welcoming to us and our companion. Rooms were clean and quiet. Getting in and out was easy each time. La Quinta has become our hotel of choice.
