We were up in Davis to tour the university for my son. We wanted a relatively inexpensive hotel with basic amenities, close to campus, and something clean & quiet. We were very satisfied here and would definitely stay here the next time. The price was reasonable with our AAA discount (about $81/night before taxes off the LaQuinta site). The room was clean and quiet. (We did not stay on the freeway side!!!!) The free breakfast was okay - waffles, various bagels & pastries, juice, (tasty) coffee, yogurt, hard-boiled eggs. (At the price I paid, I had no expectations to a hot buffet table.) One day I really wanted some fresh cooked eggs & bacon, so I ran over to the nearby Del Taco and picked up a couple breakfast burritos. (There is also an Applebees nearly next door.)
The hotel staff was friendly. The service staff was excellent. The location was excellent. Close to downtown and the university (still both a short drive away). It's next to the freeway so getting on the freeway was a dream - and an inexpensive Chevron gas station is at the corner.
We rented a king room with a couch/sofa bed. Our son stayed on the sofa bed and we stayed in the king bed. He complained a bit about the sofa bed being slightly uncomfortable. (But what do you expect from an inexpensive & small sofa bed?) With that many people in the room (3), we were very comfortable when the bed was folded up into a couch. Honestly, if you have 4 people, the room is going to be very crowded.
I agree with other reviewers that the internet was very, very slow. It seemed to be only wi-fi (no direct Ethernet cable) so I felt less secure doing any kind of real password-protected work. So the slow internet wasn't a big deal for me. I ended up using my data phone's connection for email and other stuff.
By the way. I'm starting to be in the habit now of leaving a small tip ($5 in my case) on the first day I'm there (we were there 2 nights) with a note to the cleaning staff. (Make sure if you leave a tip to add a note so there is no question in their mind that the tip is for them.) I wanted to make sure I had an extra set of towels and such for our 3rd person. Worked like a charm. Remember the staff is often overworked and usually underpaid. Leaving a tip seems to be appreciated (and deserved). And if you leave it on the first day - rather than when you leave, I think you'll see better service while you are there.
I was in town for an annual Car show in Davis and the enjoyed the stay along with a number of our club members. The parking lot was ample enough to hold a number of other cars being entered in the car show along with the hotel guests. There's a couple of reataurants nearby and a gas station as well.
Our daughter lives and teaches school at Davis and we visited her for her 25th birthday. Dog friendly is the key here. You get what you pay for. The hotel is old but clean. The breakfast is not special but adequate. The pool and hot tub are there for looks as you can't use it until after eleven A.M. The staff was pleasant. Nothing to note to make it special. The price was in line for Davis. If it were in West Sacramento it would be twenty dollars cheaper for location. The internet is very slow. The shower was hot.
This hotel has a great proximity to the UC Davis campus. The staff was very helpful. The internet needs upgrading. If you need high speed internet for working this may not be the location. The rooms were clean and the hotel was quiet.
We have been staying at La Quinta Inns for some time because they allow pets. This time, our dog Gracie was having surgery at U.C. Davis, so we stayed here two nights to be near her.
The hotel is obviously pretty old, as you can tell when you walk down the halls. The room, however, was acceptable. The breakfast room is tiny, but has the typical pastries, waffle iron, fruit and juice.
The staff were nice and the person in charge of the breakfast room was very attentive.
Now for the reason I gave them only two stars. I have found that the Wireless Internet service at La Quinta Hotels is CONSISTENTLY, poor. I am an early riser, so it was usable from about 5:00 AM to 6:30 AM then, when people starting waking up it slowed down from "acceptable" to "your out of luck, buddy." We checked in at 3:00 PM and it was the same situation, by about 5:00 PM the bandwidth provided absolutely sucked. I retired from the high-tech arena so know that it wouldn't cost them that much more to provide acceptable Internet access speeds.
Since I am getting consistently poor Internet service at their hotels, we will probably start staying at a different chain. We will try them once more then decide. I am sure I am not alone with my disappointment in the Internet service they provide to their guests.
