This was a pretty good place to stay for being in DeSoto, TX.
I'll start with the cons. I haven't stayed at other hotels in the area, so I'm not sure how they'd compare, but I did almost give it 3 stars for a less than decent fitness center (there are no weights and the elliptical doesn't work, so I hope you have a gym membership!), extremely small shallow pool, and HORRIBLE internet connection. Netflix never made it through a show or movie without stopping to reload several times, as well as youtube, and most websites took a very long time to load. It's not ideal for when you need to work from the hotel, that's for sure. Also, the hotel staff uses the internet themselves, and they are regularly resetting the internet during the day to boot off other users in order to make the bandwidth better, so beware if you lose your connection, that's probably why. That said, they do offer cables to give you a direct connection to your device, but it doesn't make much of a difference after about 4pm when everyone is back at the hotel.
Also, if you are visiting anytime soon, there is a very large wasp/yellow jacket nest in the front parking area, just on the back of a handicapped parking sign, so try to avoid walking by it or parking near it if you don't want to get stung. This was reported to hotel staff, and after several days, the nest was still there and active.
Other than those things, I really have no serious complaints about the hotel. It's very very clean, and VERY quiet for the most part. The only noise you really hear is the doors slamming shut from each room, but you can't actually hear anything from people in the rooms next to you, which is GREAT for actually getting some sleep or peace & quiet. The rooms are nice and updated, with mostly comfortable beds that I would say are softer than most hotels, but still a bit too firm for me personally. This wouldn't matter if I were staying only a couple of days, but it's always a week or more, so you may want to bring a mattress pad if you plan to stay longer.
If I ever had to stay in the DeSoto area again, I'd probably choose to stay at this hotel, despite the small issues. It's a bonus that they're pet friendly, and that they are right near many restaurants and grocery stores.
DeSoto La Quinta really out did themselves to make our stay one we will not forget! Because of a funeral, we were given an affordable bereavement discount. The manager, and young ladies at the reception counter, Alma and Ziggy couldn't have been more pleasant and helpful throughout our stay. Latosha was also quite attentive, pleasant and very alert to the essential facts of checkout. None of them left anything out . An A+ to Sonny in hiring these particular employees. Thank you again for making this part of our stay enjoyable even though our trip was not for pleasure.
rooms nice and clean ( however the beds are too soft for my back, pool is small but the hot tub is GREAT),Breakfast is slightly above average,yet very filling,excellent location right on the highway,will stay here again
We had to stay in a motel due to loss of Elec. in our home. We have passed this as it is in our home town . We are very pleased with the Staff and hotel. Would recommend it to all we know. Allowing our pets worked well as the outside temp was in the high 90.s and too hot to have them out doors. the Entrance to our room was next to the Exit. Very good.
Very friendly staff, extra clean rooms, relaxing and comfortable bed. In fact, it's the best bed I've slept on at a motel in a while (and I travel a lot).
There is no extra charge for small pets.
We are in this area often and will definitely stay here again!
