We had a great stay

The room was clean and spacious and the front desk let us check in early since our room was ready, the fountain is a bit out dated but the inside furnishings are newer. Elevator is a tad slow and it's hard to find a good parking spot late in the evening but our bed was comfy and we had no problems

We took this quick romantic getaway to celebrate our birthdays. We had an awesome experience with La Quinta Inn & Suites. The hotel was comfortable, staff was friendly, the pool stays open until 10pm and they offer a great continental breakfast each morning.

bad smell

We didn't expect it to be so far away from the beach but, at least it was near a the turnpike. We arrived at 6am and they gave us a room right away. BUT, they room smelled horrible and bed-disgusting! The whole 2nd floor smelled bad. But, we were happy that they accomidated us right away and they even went with me to see a different room to make sure it was ok. Again I found another hair on the sheet. You can not close the bathroom door all the way. but, enjoyed having a fridge and microwave. Staff was very nice.

Good

The check in process was simple, the cleanliness of the room was average. The bedding was absolutely awesome. However what i didn't like was the fact that you could hear everything that was going on outside of the room, meaning if someone was entering their room or having a conversation or whatever in the next room, you could hear it. The continental breakfast was only good on the weekend other days it left much to be desired, Other than that it was an OK experience. I would still recommend it to others for a value for their money.
