La Quinta Inn & Suites South Burlington

2.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Decent beds. Makes you sign a NON smoking policy but outside of the rooms on the hallways was dirty and smell a lot to cigarettes. Its a two star hotel. Expensive and Orbitz charge too much for this kind of hotel.

We arrived after the shuttle service ended. Contacted the hotel and they sent a taxi at no charge to us. Our only issue with the staff was during checkout the clerk was confused about payment even though we explained that we paid Orbitz. All was resolved when we contacted Orbitz.

Staff was great. Room was clean, comfortable and updated. Price was very reasonable.

Visiting for HS field hockey championship. Perfect location, 1.2 miles from UV campus at Burlington. All that we needed plus we won!

staff are helpful but facility is worn and hallway carpeting is dirty..recent prices seem increased and not worth what one gets in return.

The room had an odour to it, whether it was the residue from the cleaning products or what not? We were there for 2 days/nights and the hall carpets were never vacuumed. At 7:20 pm there were laundry carts in the hallway and the breakfast room was being vacuumed at almost 8 pm? I was using the computer and the phone rang and rang and no one answered the phone. Staff came across as being not professional in their attitude, almost got the feeling that they really would rather be somewhere else at times.

Ok hotel. Nothing fancy. Enough for a one night stay. Staff nice. There seems to be a military base nearby and you can hear the planes early in the morning.

Room smelled of smoke/must. I was in room 130 and it appeared at one time there was a suite or a connecting room. At 11 pm I could thru the connecting the tv in the next room as if it were in my own. At 630am I heard talking and heels on the adjoining bathroom floor , and again, as if they were in my own. I could also see light from the next room thru that door coming into my room.

Convenient hotel close to downtown (just 2 miles) and next to the Interstate. Rooms are a little old but well maintained and include a fridge and microwave. The free breakfast consists of waffles, hard-boild eggs, yougurt and assorted breads (basic supermarket quality). The coffee is ok, but could use an upgrade.

In general, I had a very good experience with the hotel. The hotel was very clean and the room was comfortable. The complementary breakfast was better than expected and the staff made sure everything stayed full and were patient while waiting for guests to get done eating.

Overall an OK experience, and the price was right. Wouldn't stay there again, though. Front desk guy was not very friendly or welcoming. Our room was clean, but common areas needed some attention. No covers on mattresses, which always makes me nervous.

Stayed overnight-- nothing noteworthy but clean, pleasant -- just fine.

Clean and quite, a good value for your dollar. Only shortfall -too many carbs at the breakfast.

My stay was fine! The room a clean the staff was nice! I really have no complaints.

Your hotel was central to the visiting of our family who live in the surrounding towns. And there's was even a Joanns right behind your hotel. (Love to sew!)

I'm not in the habit of give out any reviews on any hotel stays, but I would recommend this hotel as a good value

We were in Burlington for medical reasons and needed a room to stay overnight. La Quinta was one of only 2 hotels close to the hospital that was under $100/night. The other hotel had numerous (recent) bad review whereas La Quinta had mostly good reviews. The staff was very friendly. My wife was late coming down for the continental breakfast, but the staff member who was cleaning up the dining area went and got my wife her breakfast. The hotel itself is nothing fancy. A basic hotel with an outdoor pool, the fitness room had 3 equipment (eliptical, treadmill, bike). There was a guest laundry but I didn't check it out. The hotel was kept clean. The room was clean as well. The only issues we had were 1) my wife had with the room was it wasn't warm enough, I found it comfortable. 2) when my wife went to shower in the morning she said the water kept going hot / cold. I showered the night prior and had no issue with water tempurature. Overall, I would definitely stay here again should I be in Burlington overnight again.

Everyone was friendly and helpful. It was clean and let friendly.

La Quinta is a great place to stay within Burlington area. It is clean and tidy and staff was wonderful. Great place to stay if you are going to be out and about all day. It's an 8 minute drive into Burlington town center and very close to UVM. I would highly recommend it.

The staff was friendly and helpful the complimentary breakfast, simple but adequate. The room was clean and attractive, but the toilet seat was old, beat-up, and rather off-putting. The free WiFi and shuttle services are much more pleasant features.

Thank you for leaving a review. I apologize that the hallways smelled of smoke. We are a 100 % smoke free hotel, but not everyone cares about the rules. Be assured that we are doing all we can to keep the hotel smoke free. I hope to see you again. Debra G General Manager
