"Nice lobby area, average rooms, exterior leaves something to be desired"

I personally do not like hotels with rooms that open to the outdoors (as opposed to a secure interior hallway). This hotel is the former. I don't know if it was because of this or just thin walls, but I heard a lot of talking and noise coming from outside. Fortunately, it wasn't all night, and I slept fine (the beds are very comfortable). Again, the room was fine, nothing to rave about, and the lobby and breakfast areas were very nice. Overall, a decent stay for the price.
The rooms were clean, the staff was friendly. The pool was out of commission for repairs but the management arranged for the guests to have access to another hotel's pool just minutes away. I will stay there again in the future.
spent one night, very clean room. had musty smell when we first walked in but no smokey smell I would stay here again.Breakfast was a little crowed and not much of selection to chose from. We had coffee and toast then check out. There is a Perkins right across the street. Love them pancakes
Even though this is an older La Quinta, the rooms were nice & clean. The pool was just re-done and very nice. There are 3 buildings with outside hallways. Get a room in building one if you want to be close to breakfast! Get a room in building 3 if you want it really, really quiet.
I strongly recommend this hotel if it is within your budget. I have family who have stayed at cheaper hotels, and i have visited them in their rooms. Every time, we all end up going over to my room at la quinta. Its a lot larger, cleaner, and they don't cut off your a/c while you're out in town. In the middle of summer, its nice to walk into a cold room. The service was excellent. Continental breakfast from 6-10 which is nice for both early birds and those who sleep in a bit. Don't forget to ask about membership. Love them discounts.
