Detailed info on airport shuttle, amenities, etc
Posted Sep 26, 2016
Pick up from the airport was easy. Unlike 6 or 7 other hotels in the area that share a shuttle, La Quinta has its own shuttle! Just call the hotel when you arrive. Give them your cell number in case they can't find you. Ask if you need to leave baggage claim and go downstairs to be picked up as there is NO construction traffic down there. The shuttle will also take you within 5 miles of the hotel. You can see restaurants (Dennys, Red Lobster, tacos, McD's, Olive Garden, etc), a large movie theatre, and Walmart from the hotel (some on same side of road, some across the highway) and Perkins is right beside the hotel. Also, shuttle will take you to the mall...looked quite large when I drove by.
I took Uber to the SMU area for less than $22 so cheap if you need to leave the airport area. Arrived 4 minutes after asking for it.
The hotel has been updated. The ac worked very well, beds and pillows are comfortable, room was very well done, bathroom functions well, and the room was relatively quiet. No bad smells or mold.
Breakfast was the normal hotel continental thing...waffles, fruit, yogurt, muffins, toast, coffee, tea, milk/cereal. Has a couple TV's and plenty of sitting area. 6-9am Mon-Fri, 7-10 Sat-Sun. Can sit in the area and work even when breakfast isn't being serviced.
Front desk was very professional yet very personable. Be sure to ask for the shuttle schedule the day before you leave to be sure you make it to the airport on time.
Highly recommend this hote!
