“Great beds and excellent lobby area”
Reviewed 2 May 2014 via mobile

Stayed here on our way to Tuscaloosa to move my son out of Bama. We stopped here after spending the afternoon in the Gatlinburg area and after an early dinner at Sweet P's BBQ (really tasty).The beds were super comfortable and the room was nicely furnished.The lobby breakfast area was quite spacious with a nice selection of items ( coffee was better than most hotels I have been in). The only negative issue was that it was difficult to make a hard left to enter the property off Alcoa Highway---especially at rush hour

Stayed May 2014, travelled with family

Clean, friendly staff, exceptionally comfortable bed, good breakfast -- would choose to stay here anytime! Breakfast manager, Jim was very entertaining. Helpful staff and cookies were exceptionally good at the front desk. Felt very safe.

Room Tip: Stayed on 2nd floor - no complaints. Jim was a very entertaining breakfast manager!

Rooms were clean and nicely updated. The bed was hard(usually this hotel chain has the most comfortable mattresses) maybe because they were newer mattresses. The toilet ran all night. At 5:30 when I went to the bathroom, I stepped in water. I don't know if the seal leaked or just sweat from running so long. I reported this to the front desk. I am sure this problem was taken care of. Staff was very friendly. Ashley checked us in at eleven and the man that made breakfast did a very good job. The check out lady was very nice too.

My wife and I checked in at the La Quinta in Alcoa Tn. April 25, 2014. The property was neat, clean, and attractive. Everyone was very cordial and very accommodating. Kathy gave us cookies and when there was no coffee, went out of her way to make some. Everyone said, "Hi, how is it going? Is there anything that I can do for you?" Even the maintenance man who was emptying the trash cans was pleasant when I was leaving. My wife and I were treated to a first-class continental breakfast which had many choices. I only come this way once every couple of years but I will stay here the next time I do.

Room Tip: I like to park my auto so that I can look out the window and check on it.

My experience at this hotel was very good. The staff paid attention to detail and made every effort to accommodate us. The room was clean and the king sized bed was very comfortable! They offered a quality continental breakfast and the coffee was very good. This is a great location although Alcoa Highway is a bit scary!

The hotel was clean, and the beds were very soft. Only issue we had was the guests staying above us (running around at 3 AM). Called the desk, and they took care of the problem though. Would recommend this La Quinta Inn.

My wife and I were traveling to Raleigh, North Carolina, for a wedding and stayed at this particular hotel twice, once on the way out and again on the way back, and we are so happy we stayed at this particular La Quinta.

The hotel was once a Fairfield Inn and has been completely remodeled and updated. The lobby looks like it belongs to the kind of upscale, trendy hotel that would run $130 or more per night, and the rooms are similarly upscale with better carpet and linens, nice art on the walls, new LCD TVs, wonderfully comfortable pillow top beds, and newer, more contemporary bathrooms. In fact the only complaint I have about the whole place is with the bathrooms - would it kill 'em to put a FAN in there when they do the remodel?

Other than that this place was amazing. The staff was super friendly, hat tip to Ashley the lovely young lady who checked us in both times and was super sweet each time. Our stay here was one of necessity and convenience, but our experience was so wonderful that this La Quinta is the standard against which other hotels shall be measured.
