“Stay on top floor, there's an elevator.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 November 2013

After a rough start, given a top floor room did it.
Clean, nice staff, good place for pets.
There is a small pond/grassy area, across the street where you can walk your best friend.
Good size swimming pool, bring your suit.

Location is great, close to 175, hidden behind a road across from the Main Oak Mall and Perkins. A challenge to walk due to traffic but possible.

There's a fancy chinese restaurant across the street, many more down the main drag, very close.

Just know that during Univ of Florida Game day, it will get jammed nearby. However, you have options to go around, keep your GPS handy and you will be ok.

Room Tip: Choose top floor, refrig is extra$10

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 November 2013

After reading the reviews, I was a little hesitant on what to expect from La Quinta. This hotel went above my expectations.
First, the staff is exceptional - they were amazing with the information they gave us, to the welcome we received at 1.30am, to the extra towels that were left in a bag at our door - thank you!
Second, the bed - we had a King beg in room 239 - it was very very comfortable - slept amazing.
Yes, the hotel rooms can use a little update - but I am not staying at the Ritz either. The rooms were clean, the beds were comfortable and the staff was amazing.
This hotel is pet friendly, so that is a plus to pet owners. There was a slight smell when we walked into the room - but this smell is something I found all over Gainesville - I don't know how to explain it. But the smell went away when we turned on the AC.

I've stayed here before and it must have been OK, because nothing negative comes to mind...

However...what service I received from the lady who answered the phone...Jennifer sold me on the property when we were on the phone and a guest came to the desk and asked me to hold...How professional was that?

I mean who among us have been at the desk to check in/out and the phone rings and we end up ignored for the next 10 minutes? Here actual guests get priority over phone calls...

Even though 1 exit north of Archer, the VA rate was less than the Red Roof, and I get Delta Miles as well!

I.m really looking forward to meeting Jennifer and her crew and after a traumatic VA visit having a relaxing evening at the LaQuinta...
