I liked that this hotel was a bit smaller, easy to get to any room from the front. I was worried about it being loud because it's right next to the interstate but it was fine.

Nice property. Shower needs more water pressure.

Having 2 dogs, La Quinta properties are a regular destination for me. This was definitely the nicest of the LQ properties I've been to across the country. The only issue was the walls were very thin so you could hear your neighbors, dogs barking and traffic outside. Would definitely stay here again if I was in the area.

Everything look new but there was a need for more staff. They were working hard but just needed more people.

No hotel staff at front desk for over 20 minutes at 5pm on a Friday. Room was not ready when we entered so had to go back to front desk because they didn’t answer phone. Housekeeping staff unresponsive on floor. Hotel staff acted like it was an imposition to correct the issue.

Excellent. Breakfast choices slim because if COVID. But otherwise a great place.

Easy to get to, quiet and clean. What was bad. The elevator door didn't stay open long and closed T a rapid pace. My fiance has a sore shoulder from it!

Clean, very comfortable bed, nice staff.the shower was alittle weak low water pressure. Overall a nice stay would use again.
