everything is very good

Posted Jul 4, 2017
Pros: the location is convenient. the rooms are a nice size and have a refrigerator and a microwave. the layout of the room is pleasant with good lighting
Cons: they should tell you where the soda machine/snack machines are when you check in.
the room is a good size and the bed was very comfortable. the towels are my favorite of all the places we have stayed. i recommend this place to anyone. saw a good mix of families, older people and everyone in between. check in and out is easy. even the coffee is good.

It was exactly what I expected.. except that in the living room it was a little hot because the air didn't circulate and we was moving around but when we went to sleep & woke up it was cold!

I usually book at La Quinta

Posted Jul 1, 2017
Staff is really nice! Even when we were late for breakfast. I usually book with them because they have decent rates and breakfast helps when your traveling with family.

Nightmare

Posted May 26, 2017
I was very disappointed with this hotel. We had a suite and the room was extremely hot. Especially at night. When the maintenance man came to our room to fix the problem he said there was something wrong with the thermostat and it was very expensive to fix and there was nothing he could do to fix it. The front desk said the hotel was completely sold out and couldn't move us to another room. Also there was a dirty towel hanging over the shower curtain in our room when we arrived and someone's keys were on the floor. I was traveling with my infant son. When we left for dinner we waited 10 minutes for the elevator before deciding to carry the baby, stroller and car seat down the three story stairwell to the lobby. When we reached the lobby we asked the lady at the front desk if the elevator was working and she said no. There wasn't a note on the elevator stating it was out of order. Many people were waiting for the elevator not knowing it was broken.

Flea infestation

Posted Apr 16, 2017 on Hotels
Staff was very nice, however the cleanliness of the hotel was horrible. It said it was pet friendly and pets stayed free which was wonderful and made our decision for our stay. However after leaving we noticed we had an infestation of fleas. Our small dog was completely covered for the first time ever and nothing but huge flease, and all of our clothes were covered. Not even 10 minutes away from the hotel after leaving we were horrified and had to stop and get our dog washed right away and flea diped. And bag all of our clothes and spray our car. We will never stay at this hotel again or recommend it to anyone ever.
