La Quinta Inn & Suites Visalia/Sequoia Gateway

3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

40 min drive to Sequoia. Lots of restaurant nearby. The air quality of the city is not good in the morning. Room is clean except some dead bugs on the mattress.

All was good until our second night. A group came in late -- young people. Running up and down the hallways and slamming doors. Finally they settled down around 12:30 a.m. I was too tired to get up and call the front desk. Be considerate of where these groups are placed especially late night arrivals. Thank you.

La Quinta Inn is centrally located, has several restaurants within walking distance. Decent breakfast.

It was easy to find late at night with quick access to the freeway! The room was clean, comfortable, and somewhat spacious!

Very clean room, common area clean, very nice breakfast selection , had a person station to keep filling items and cleaning

The place is a bit seedy. The elevators are excruciatingly slow. The pillows were lumpy

Very nice place to stay after a long day of travel. Restaurants nearby. Great Breakfast.

Our check-in experience was okay, not great. We checked in around 9 pm after a long day as Sequoia National Park. There was "only one room available" and it was on the first floor next to the gym. We really needed a room that would have quiet, so we asked again, and another room magically appeared. Well, we went to that room and showered, and then noticed that room had a LOT of street noise. Motorcycles, buses, all quite loud on a very busy street, and very audible in the room. After about 45 minutes of that, my wife went down to speak with the front desk person (now about 10 pm), and there was a DIFFERENT person at the front desk. Voila, he had another room available that would overlook the parking lot instead of the street, and he was only too happy to put us in it. What a joy, this room was perfectly quiet. Of course, this room was obviously always available, since it did not just become ready at 10 pm, but wondering why the first young lady at the front desk was so unwilling to give us a room that fit our needs? Still, we were VERY happy once we were put in the final room.

One night stay in hotel in order to visit Sequoia National Park. Room and check in we're both great! Sufficient dining options to eat around hotel. Overall, nice stop!

Front desk is very helpful and courteous. Breakfast in the morning includes sausage, eggs and make your own waffles.

Great stay, although the shopping center location made it a little hard to access, especially since I was very tired and wanted desperately to check in. Overall, it was great!

We enjoyed our stay at this Hotel. Would have been nice to have a few more toiletries but we managed just fine. Bed was a bit hard for me but my husband loved it. Will definitely stay again. Staff was awesome

Service was very good, also location but Hotel is old and smells old.

First time I have stayed in this hotel. It was in a good location and close to places to eat. The room and the hotel was very clean and the staff were very friendly and helpful. Would definitely stay there again!

Staff was very accommodating, breakfast was good, great value and will certainly stay again on our next trip.

nothing special like as other cheap motels. one of bad thing is there is too noise between room and room.

Easy check in/check out quite, clean room, greta breakfast. Location OK near to freeway.

The Hotel was clean and the staff was friendly. It had a small workout room. Breakfast had a few hot items along with continental breakfast food.

The room was clean, breakfast great. The only proble m we had was that the reservation was for 4 people and they gave us a king size bed and a twin pull out when we complained to staff, they gave us blankets for the floor. N ext morning the on duty staff informs us that they had available another pull out couch.

A quick trip, but this was a nice clean room and for our purposes a great location.
