This was our second time staying in Lynnwood while visiting the Seattle area. We were going to stay at the Holiday Inn Express because we had stayed there before and enjoyed it, but we had read a review on tripadvisor of someone who had stayed at both hotels and stated that they were comparable with the bonus of La Quinta being about $30-$40 a night cheaper. Yes I agree, these 2 hotels are comparable, the La Quinta is not quite as modern as the Holiday Inn, but it's still a nice, decent and clean hotel.
We stayed in a standard 2 queen room and it was equipped with a mini fridge and the sink area was outside the main bathroom. There was also free wifi which we also appreciate and a business area in the lobby, but I'm unsure if this was free or not. Being a family of four we usually try to find hotels that have at minimum a free continental breakfast, but try to aim for a free hot breakfast and this hotel had a decent one. They served pastries, bread, hot & cold cereals, sliced oranges, waffles, hard boiled eggs, cup of noodles and assorted hot & cold beverages.
The only problem we did encounter at this hotel was with the pool/hot tub. Although it was aesthetically pleasing and the water was a good temperature I had noticed after swimming the second day my legs were itchy. ( I had spent 1.5 - 2 hours the first 2 evenings back and forth between the pool & hot tub) I thought my skin was being sensitive, but on the third night my boys legs were very itchy too, so much so that my 7 year old son needed to keep a cool cloth on his legs for some relief. I think apart of the reason is that there isn't a shower area down in the pool room so we had to shower when we went back to our room so the chemicals sat on our skin for awhile, and this was also part of the problem. I think they need to check the chemical levels in their pools because we have never reacted this way before. We've been on extended vacations where we swam in pools everyday. We stayed at La Quinta at the end of March and almost a month later you can still the rash on my shins.
Upon checking out I informed the front desk staff of the situation and she was genuinely concerned and apologetic, which was nice to hear and because of this I told her to be sure and pass along the message that they should check the chemical levels in their pool/hot tub. A couple of weeks after arriving back home I did send an email to La Quinta Inn to follow up and ask if anything had been done and I'm disappointed that to this day I've had no response at all. Other than the rash and itchy legs, we did enjoy our stay.
