Spent the night there after finding this gem on Price Line. We had a great time here and although everything wasn't perfect we slept like logs. Our room could have used a little more elbow grease as far as the cleaning, but it wasn't anything that would scare you. The hair dryer died after about 3 min of working, but all in all it wasn't to bad of a place.

Room Tip: Very nice chicken place out front for supper, if you like chicken.

We were here for almost 2 months. We enjoyed our stay and all the staff. We were close to a lot of stores...restaurants and gas stations. I am a runner and less than 5 miles from this La Quinta was a beautiful running park. Our room was always clean and the housekeepers were amazing. I have a few people that I would like to say that went above and beyond there job. They are: Assistant General Manager: Samantha. At the desk: Jani...Denisse...and Marlene. Housekeepers...Doris...Yisel...Adela and Maintenance: Jesus. We look forward to coming back next year for Yankee Spring Training and yes, we will be staying at this LaQuinta. Thank you for making this place a home for us for 2 months.

I've stayed here over 3 times for business. Always friendly staff and owner. Its also in a great spot near a busy road with lots of choices to eat. Airport is not that far. Football stadium is right down the road. It would be nice if they added weights to the fitness center and hand/body lotion to the rooms. Next to main road with lots of choices for food. Wal-Mart walking distance behind hotel, also Zaxby's and a Burger King walking distance.

Thank you for taking the time to write a review of the property. I am glad that you like the hotel and find the staff to be courteous and accomodating. Thank you for your comments about the fitness room - perhaps the addition of a set of dumbells or a small multi-function weight machine could be something we address during future upgrading/renovations. It is always a pleasure to hear that someone is happy with the hotel and its staff. Thanks for staying with us, and we hope to see you again soon.

Was concerned driving to the hotel with the area. Hotel was well lit and didn't have any issues. Hallways and elevator can use renovation. Otherwise the hotel was fine able to be seen from a while away and close to a Zaxbys.

This hotel is in a terrible area and the staff doesn't ensure the people from around that area stay out of the hotel. There also seems to be an issue with making sure reserved rooms are cleaned prior to the check in time of 4 p.m.

Thank you very much for your review. I apologize that housekeeping appears to have been behind schedule on the date of your check in. I assure you that that is not typical, as we strive to clean the rooms to the highest standard and have them ready on time. If staff is aware of someone who clearly should not be on the property, all have been instructed to ask that person to immediately leave the premises. I assure you also that such occurrences are very rare. I appreciate your taking the time to contribute a Trip Advisor review, and hope that we might see you again in the future so that we can show you how good we can be.

Keep up the good work! Everything was excellent. Room was very clean and the beds and pillows were amazing. I will gladly stay here again if I needed. All the employees were very nice and helpful as well.
