We stayed for 1 night for the Erie Marathon. Overall we thought it was clean and pretty nice. It was especially nice to be able to travel with our dog. However, when we left, I had accidentally forgot a stuffed animal memento that I have had for 30 years. I'm 100% sure it was in the room because we were only there 1 night and it never left the room. I called the same day we left, and was told they didnt see it. Whether it fell on the floor, or was scooped up in the linens, it just doesnt make sense AT ALL that it just disappeard. We've called several days to see if it turned up, and the staff started sounding like they were annoyed. There were only so many people in that room and Im annoyed that it just disappeared and have no explanation. I understand that we keep calling but good customer service would understand the situation and at least act like they care.
We were traveling with two cats. I especially like that La Quinta has figured out they will hide under beds and have platform box springs that foil that idea and make them easy to find and catch in the morning. This hotel was clean. The paint and carpeting has been recently redone. The breakfast was crowded but in a pleasant, family friendly way because the hotel was pretty full. The staff was pleasant and helpful. We will aim for this hotel again as a stopping point when we are traveling with pets.
My wife and I stayed here one night to participate in the Erie Marathon. The confirmation page we received from La Quinta said that check out was 12:00. When we checked in we were told the check out was 11:00. We showed the clerk the print out and she responded "That's not the policy here." We needed a later check out to shower after the run. We asked if we could have a late check out anyways and she said "NO" there were already too many. We drove 2 hours home stinky and sweaty. Also we called earlier in the week and asked if they were starting breakfast early for the Marathon racers and was told that they were starting at 5:00 AM. to accommodate all the runners. Upon arriving we were told that breakfast was at 6:00 AM and that this was not going to change. We were not the only people to be told one thing and be fibbed to. Several of the people we talked to at the Hotel that were running stated the same problem. The Erie Marathon packs the hotels in the area and it seems the La Quinta is willing to lie to get the business. We will book further in advance next year and stay at the Hampton where we never have a problem. We would have stayed there this time but like most of the Hotels they were booked solid. On the plus side the room was clean. That's about the only nice thing I can say about this Hotel.
My son-in-law and I were traveling across country with a U-Haul truck and trailer and needed a place to stop for the night. Reservation was made through the LQ Rewards line for this hotel since we did not have the local number for the hotel and it was listed on the pet friendly website. What the LQ people did not tell us was that there is no parking for oversized vehicles or vehicles with trailers. A u turn has to be made to get into the hotel parking lot from the interstate. The hotel was not very busy on a Tuesday night so we were able to get turned around and parked after a lot of effort. Failing that, you have to park at the truck stop across the interstate. As far as the hotel is concerned, the young woman at the front desk was more than competent and very helpful, the room was clean and comfortable with the best bed of the trip, there was adequate room on the tiled part of the floor to set up the dog's kennel and the shower was great. Breakfast was out pretty early and the bisquits and canned gravy were better than average.
rooms were clean, great shower with glass doors, very comfortable beds, excellent staff and very helpful. Great coffee too! The A/C was quiet, as was the whole hotel. We were two door down from the pool and exercise room and didn't hear a thing.
