La Quinta Inn & Suites Elizabethtown

2.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

I arrived late (after 11:00PM, because of a pile up on the freeway involving 6 cars and a tractor-trailer), so I'm sure I didn't receive a primo room, but I was hoping for better. The room was a hodge-podge of different furniture styles, and one cabinet containing the microwave and the mini-fridge looked particularly banged up and worse for wear. There was a light that was mounted low on the wall, right next to the arm of a chair, so it was too low to illuminate a book if you were reading in the chair. The paint and trim had an amateurish finish (obvious lack of masking or caulking). The tub fixtures had a poor fit with a big gap at the shower stall and the spout. Temperature control in the room was fine, and the through-the-wall unit was modern, with good controls, and wasn't noisy. The in-room coffee maker had a heavy film of hard water deposits where you pour the water in - obviously it hadn't been cleaned or even wiped out in a long time. They were remodeling the front of the building and the dining area, so the free breakfast was served in the exercise room, which had all the equipment removed except for the weight machine. I understand using a different space while the dining area is being remodeled, but the breakfast served was probably the worst I've seen in a hotel. The egg patties were something I've never seen before, and the (hot) food was cold.

A basic, right off the highway, place to get off the road and sleep....clean, basic room, and hotel with few amenities or frills....breakfast was again basic, but not bad. Staff was professional and helpful. Perfect example of "You pay for what you get". If you just want a decent place to crash, this works....I would stay again, but my wife says she wants to upgrade next time.(what else is new?)

This was a nice clean hotel to stay at while visiting my granddaughter. Pool was nice, although drainage around the deck was poor making it very slippery. Rooms nice size and clean.

Convenient location if you are working in the area, plenty of restaurants within walking distance, clean rooms, with everything you need for a comfortable stay. To improve the stay, breakfast area was dimly lite, food was not healthy, dreary atmosphere, not a good way to start the day.

Our worst LaQuinta hotel experience. When we arrived we were given a very cursory greeting by the hotel clerk. The other couple that was traveling with us asked if they could apply their AARP discount to the rate and were promptly told no. We had to ask why and were told that because it was a third party purchase no additional discounts could be applied (understandable). When our traveling partners went into their room they found a soiled band aid next to their bed and found the sheets rumpled and recently stained. They asked for another room, which they received after some delay. We found our room to be ok. Not very clean but ok. When we went to use the shower we found that there was considerable water damage to the drywall around the tub enclosure and upon waking we discovered a soiled used sock that had been left ajdacent to the bed that we had just slept in. All in all this was not a pleasant experience and we will not use this hotel in the future and will share our negative experience with all of our friends and contacts on social media sights.

Your hotel met our needs perfectly. The pool had just been reopened and the water was a bit chilly but our grandchildren went in for a bit anyway. The room were good, the staff was very overworked as one computer was down. All and all a good place to stay--would again.

This is an ok place to stay if your just blowing through but, wouldn't want to hang around long. The front of the facility appears to be new however, it appears as if it was added onto an existing older motel which we were placed in. It was a typical...buy and old run down motel, slap some paint, wallpaper, new carpet, etc. down and call it a Holiday Inn Express or whatever. The hallways were hot as the AC units in the rooms were in the ceilings of the foyer and did not exhaust or obtain makeup air from the exterior. The AC unit was also very loud and did not work very well at all. Had to keep the thermostat set of 63 just to keep it cooled down. Not bad but, not worth the money!!

Very nice hotel, Newly remodeled, very clean room. lots of restraunts within walking distance. We enjoyed the pool and jacuzzi.good hot breakfast in the morning , great deal for the money ! would definately stay there again !

The hotel was nice, but the sounds from other rooms was noticiably loud.

The first night we stayed across the street at the comfort suites, and that hotel was beautiful. Then going here it wasn't fair to compare. I liked that this hotel allowed pets and thats the best I can say for it. The room was okay, but the rug was discolored most likely from previous pet stays. The pool was small and always crowded. It was an average hotel. For the price I wouldn't go back unless I was traveling with my dog. If you've got a pet it's pretty good, but if not stay across the street at the comfort suites. It was about the same price and twice as nice, but they don't take pets. It's close to fast food and gas, shopping was about a ten minute drive. My four year old son was excited about the pool but only got to swim in it once because it was always crowded. The breakfast was cereal, juice, fruit, and coffee. It wasn't exactly what I was expecting.
