Reviewed 27 March 2012

No cash means you have to go to the Getto gas station next door to get a bottle of water. Stay away from Conover. Stay in Hickory. No way this should be 3 stars.

I would first like to say that we appreciate you taking the time to give a review of our property. I do apologize for the issue that you faced regarding bottled water. Without knowing the circumstances of your water issue I can only assume that you were requesting bottled water from the front desk and were directed to the vending machines. Without having any cash in hand I can understand your frustration. However, the hotel has drinks available in the breakfast area 24 hours a day; as well as a water fountain on the first floor. Had those options not been suitable, there is a wonderful restaurant located inside the hotel that is open for lunch & dinner.
As for our rating, we are fortunate that the vast majority of our guests find the property to be exceptional. They enjoy our made to order hot breakfast, the cleanliness of our property, and the friendliness of our staff.
When given the opportunity, the hotel staff will do what it takes to make sure we are here for you. I sincerely hope that you will give us a second chance to make a great impression on you.

Here for you,
Rebecca Rhodes

This is by far one of the cleanest and most pleasant hotels we stay in. The breakfast is quite wonderful with prepared to order omelets and eggs. We travel quite a bit and have made it a habit to plan our trips around overnighting here whenever possible. This is an amazing place to stay. Highly recommended.

Room Tip: We have never been disappointed in any rooms here for any reason. They take good care of their guest...

You are correct in saying that the navigational devices can really keep you on your toes in our town. Luckily, like you said there is always a smiling face at our desk waiting to help. We want to provide our guests with everything they need to wake up on the bright side and that includes a well maintained room, hospitable staff and a fantastic hot breakfast. We are glad you enjoy our property enough to give us this review and we always look forward to seeing you again.

We stayed in this hotel 4 times in the last year. Hotel staff makes you feel very welcome and they always have a smile on thier face. Rooms are very clean and the furnishings are new. If you find a problem in the room, just call the front desk, and it is corrected right away. The breakfast they serve is great, eggs to order, along with many other hot items. If you use your gps to get you here, when you exit, the gps tells you to turn left at the light, the hotel is on the right at the light. hopefully Garmin will have this corrected soon.

Don't judge this hotel by its exterior. As stated it is a referbished hotel (took two years to redue) We had to drive around the buildiing looking for the entrance. Upon entering thru the pool entrance we were surprised at the hugh lobby, very pleasant. The room was great, very warming and comfortable. It was WOW nice hotel. The breakfest was even better, as others have stated, one of the best we have had anywhere. Location is right off exit. I have traveled to this area a dozen times and will not stay anywhere else period. Don't let the location fool you, this hotel is a hidden gem in the area.

Thanks for your honest review of our property. We are thrilled that we receive so many positive reviews from out guests. We are always striving to serve the best breakfast around and we are happy you enjoyed it.
I must say you hit the nail on the head when you stated the landscaping needs improvement. The interior renovation of the building took almost two years to complete and everyone was too exhausted for the outside! (just kidding) This year our plans are to improve the landscaping around the buidling in the hopes of delivering the same quality as the inside delivers.
Thanks again for the review and we look forward to seeing you back in the future.

After reading the great reviews of this hotel, we decided to give it a try. One of the main points was the fact they allowed us to bring our dog as well. I must say the outside does not match the inside. The outside needs some new landscaping and upgrades. But, don't worry, the inside makes up for it by far. From the lobby to our room, everything was wonderful. The room was especially nice with new decor. We were impressed.

We stayed 3 nights here the weekend fo Feb 10th and I couldn't have been more pleased. Friendly staff who were very accommodating as well as took suggestions (seemed to care & took note of a suggestion I had). Hotel lobby and rooms were clean and bright! Warming welcoming feeling the whole weekend. I used the Fitness centre as well which had a flat screen to watch while working out too. Free breakfast included in the already awesome nightly rate - and its not just muffins, its a hot eggs made to order which I loved! They had french toast, pancakes, waffles, yogurt etc... I really looked forward to my breakfast. Free wi-fi was great too! PLUS they have 24/7 coffe, tea and juice.... I have to come back in March and will definately be staying here again (& again) - so I signed up for the LaQuinta Rewards program too. Walmart & other shopping was less than 5 minutes away and Hickory Speedway was a couple minutes away. LaQuinta is right off the highway so it was easy to get to.
