Spartan, but gets the job done

Breakfast was a little flimsier than I've experienced at other LaQuinta's: there were waffles, but no eggs, bacon, etc. Weird setup with the rooms. Each room is connected to another via a locked internal door (like at many hotels). But the gap under the door is especially wide, meaning that you hear everything going on in the other room. Rather uncomfortable.

A great basic hotel

It's a La Quinta, so there's not much room for surprise (or originality). But this one is friendly, well managed, convenient...and with its location, nestled back from NC55 among the trees, it's pleasantly quiet...even maybe just a little bit quaint., if you can use that word for a hotel just past the railroad tracks and up the road from a Waffle House. (Oh yeah--there's also a Waffle House 1 minute away if you are into that thing.)

Surprised at the suite

I booked expecting a std king size and I arrived and was put into one of the suites with separate living area and sleeping area. Made it wonderful to catch up on my business work after my training sessions.

Great simple hotel

If you know what La Quinta is about, then you know what to expect: simple but cheerful, comfortable rooms, free paper, free WiFi, basic but free breakfast. A few things make this one stand out. It's very convenient to the airport and Research Triangle Park locations. It's tucked away on a side street well off the highway, so it's quiet and feels secluded. And the staff here is particularly friendly. As budget chain hotel experiences go, this is about as good as it gets.

Enjoyable stay

My family and I loved the hotel and all it's amenities. The location was good. Easy access to the main highway and to good restaurants. My daughter loved the fact that it was close to the mall. Our original destination was the UNC at Durham. We toured the campus and loved the scenery. The hotel was a good location for the college preview.

Nice getaway

For the price, this was an exceptional place to stay. The room was clean and had everything we needed for a 2 day stay. The staff wasn't very friendly, so don't expect a smile when you check in.

Price not as competitive as thought.

This is my second stay at this hotel - the first booked through your site. The rate I paid was higher than the rate indicated in the hotel records. Another guest checking in at the same time obtained a much lower rate through another site. Since the room for paid for at booking, the hotel was unable to make an adjustment.

Great value hotel

We were pleasantly surprised to find this hotel near the highway to be so nice! The room was clean and modern. I was glad that it had a flat screen tv, too! Breakfast was a pleasant surprise also. There were bagels and a waffle maker for those who like a sweeter breakfast. The garden had planted flowers which was really pretty.

don't leave anything behind

My experience at the hotel was good until I realized I left my jacket (worth $100) in the coat closet. I called up the same evening I checked out to see if they found it and they claimed there was no jacket in the lost&found or in the room. This is the second time I've lost something this way at La Quinta. Don't leave anything behind or you'll lose it.

Perfect for a shor stay

Stayed there for one night for business. Excellent service given the price. Room comfortable and spotless. Only caveats: - Require a car as not really anything around. - Very close to the motorway so a little bit noisy (constant humming on the background)
