"Saved some money and it was OK"
4 of 5 stars Reviewed Sep 17, 2014
Lynda C | Parma, MI
We wanted to stop around Peru, and I checked online for prices at other hotels, deciding to save some $$ by choosing La Quinta, even though several others were right nearby. This is a nice property, clean and well attended. The pool area was well maintained, and while I like for the pool to be open earlier in the morning (I would certainly like to swim before 8 AM), and I prefer a pool a bit bigger and deeper, it was a good temperature. I enjoyed swimming and using the hot tub. Bed was a bit soft,but comfortable. My only complaint would be the road noise--be sure to ask for a room on the side away from the highway. I think that would be even-numbered rooms! Room was clean and well appointed, had fridge and microwave, but could use more outlets for charging electronics. Free wifi, although I didn't use it, cannot comment upon quality or speed. Breakfast was good--I thought the sausage gravy was exceptionally good. Breakfast hours very good, even have early breakfast on Saturday and Sunday. This is a good place. I would come here again.

"A nice place for a good nights rest"

We stopped at this hotel because of previous good experiences at other hotels with this brand. This La Quinta was not fancy but the service was very good. The first room we were given had too many minor problems and we were immediately moved to another room. That is excellent front desk service. The breakfast was standard waffles and cereal and the hotel is easy on, off the expressway.

"Fine for a One Night Stop"
3 of 5 stars Reviewed Sep 10, 2014
roadtripblondie | michigan
Positives: Location near I-80 exit, can walk to multiple dining and shopping establishments Front desk staff extremely friendly and helpful Good and plentiful pillows, enough decent quality towels Quiet - I was concerned when given a room near ice machine, elevator and view of freeway in addition to hearing barking dogs from other rooms when in hallway. Not one of these potential items which could have interfered with sleep ever became an issue. Negatives: Property appears tired. Lobby is dated, chairs in room are stained. Breakfast is just OK. A cup of yogurt and bagel was all that appealed to me. Upon checkout, Front desk asked me if I enjoyed the breakfast. I commented that I found the coffee very weak; she responded that I should try Starbucks. Summary: Given the significant price differential between the LaQuinta and neighboring chain properties, I am satisfied with my choice. However,my experience does not encourage me towards any loyalty to this brand.

"Clean hotel"
3 of 5 stars Reviewed Sep 2, 2014
Kassandra T | Maroa, United States
Contrary to an earlier review, this hotel was not "infested" with boxelder bugs. The hotel is in need of some updating, but it is clean and the staff was extremely jovial and helpful. The bed was very comfortable too. Usually we eat the free breakfast but the room was full so we opted for IHOP which was right next door and within walking distance.

"La Quinta!"
4 of 5 stars Reviewed Sep 1, 2014

The rooms were spacious and clean, and the hotel is near to good restaurants, Target and Walmart, in case you need to stock up or if you forgot something at home. Continental breakfast is included in your stay; the selections were pretty basic for a continental breakfast. Free wifi is also included. The staff was friendly and helpful, always greeting you and asking if you needed anything anytime walking in and out of the building. After I got back home, I realized I forgot the charger to my Kindle; I called the hotel, they found the charger, and are sending it to me tomorrow -- they could have just put me on hold and said they didn't find it, so that was a nice touch. La Quinta is a short drive from Starved Rock, so if you are in the area and are going there, you should give La Quinta serious consideration -- I know that I will for my next stay there.
