The hotel/room is spotless, the pool is newly renovated. They're pet friendly and supply doggie "business" bags. Housekeeping is great and so very helpful. Breakfast is very nice with a nice selection. The only thing this hotel really needs to invest in is a guest laundry and gym.
Bathroom was not clean, curtains had stains. Hair in tub and around toilet. Pool was not working. Generally in category of low end value hotel being a La Quinta I had higher expectations. Room was just in general surface clean but when you looked around lots of dirt. Value was good, but you get what you pay for.
Room was very clean with standard LQ furniture. Bathroom was fine and clean, plenty of counter space. Easy parking, decent location. Plenty of space nearby to walk a dog and stretch your legs if you're on a long road trip.
Fleas! The room had fleas! Even the room they changed me to was dirty & unkept. The AC unit was loud & unpredictable. I didn't dare try the breakfast, since the rooms were so gross. The only good thing was the location to restaurants & where I was working. I was very glad to get out of there & definitely will NOT go back! The worse La Quinta I have ever stayed in!
Well known PET HOTEL.... Lots of dogs. We stayed here for a family funeral & I was awakened every morning at 6:00 by a howling dog left behind in a room. Also the rooms have zero sound proofing and outside noise (rude people yelling back & forth to each other) comes in. The hotel pool was down for servicing and we were told we could use BestWesterns pool one exit up....it would have been nice to have been told that when reservations were made.
I will say...the staff was friendly & the rooms clean. But howling dogs at 6 a.m. Was hard to deal with. Also....there are no queen size beds. We normally get one room with our two teens...but full beds are not for tall people...we had to get two rooms with king beds. This hotel needs a non pet section.
