really enjoyed and will return often,; have stayed a number of other places but this was by far best value, excellent friendly service. They went out of their way to be helpful yet not intrusive. Also, very dog friendly. Thank you La Quinta! Desk people. breakfast people and bedroom staff were first rate.

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 15 March 2017

This La Quinta location is one of the best that I have stayed in. We stayed in a 2 room suite and it was nice and big with separate temperature controls in each room. The bathroom was large and spotless. The only thing that I would have preferred is bigger televisions.

Always enjoy staying at La Quinta as it is a great value and there is always their standards and no surprises. The only disappointment was that the swimming pool was out of service for repairs and my 6 year old was excited to be able to swim and we are going to Cancun in 2 months so as a parent...

Great location, very clean and felt safe, easy to get to and very well lit. The staff was friendly and I wish I would've taken a swim suit to get use of the pool and spa. The breakfast area was very nice and the items provided were fresh and plenty of selection.

We stayed one night here on out way back from a family road trip and could not get out of the place soon enough. We picked this hotel because it was rated very high and allowed pets. But I have to admit, even our dog didn't want to stay at this hotel. Upon arrival, you find a parking lot with...
