Road Trip

The bed was kind of funky and the heating unit rattled every time it ran. The tub in the bathroom was scary dirty!

Inexpensive doesn't mean cheap!

I have paid more for overnight stays across the country, but this has become my preferred hotel location whenever I am in the Bloominton, IL area. It's convenient location right off the expressway, plus its proximity to Walmart have made this my go to hotel for the past several years. I initially booked here because of its availability at the last minute (my 1st stay), and its low price (compared to other nearby locations) ever since. But what really keeps me coming back over and over are its clean, quiet rooms, its focus on its guests, and the feeling that I've always gotten more than what I paid for- a safe, good night's sleep. Check it out!

weekend college visit

This hotel was a great value and very comfortable. It was quiet and I had one of the best sleep nights in a long time. The room was very clean and bed so comfortable. The continental breakfast and coffee were fair. It would have been nice to have half n half for my coffee and hard boiled eggs, but not comparing to much as it was free. I would recommend this to others and will come back.

Stay away!

This was probably the worst experience I've had with a hotel. First of all, when we arrived, there was what appeared to be dried blood on our sheets and someone's leftover food was still in the fridge. All of the towels were very crunchy. Also, checkout time was listed as noon, but hotel staff came banging on our door at 10:50. They said checkout was 11AM. Overall, it was a bad experience and I will not be going to another La Quinta Inn.

It's a bed.

Mattresses are old and worn. Room was very humid, a/c was old and musty. Breakfast was all carbs, good thing McDonald's is next door. Will never stay at a La Quinta again. Two bad ones are enough for me.
