“Great location”
Reviewed 28 June 2014

This was the first time staying at this brand and I was pleasantly surprised.
We had two rooms and both were clean, quiet and spacious.
The staff were very helpful and friendly.
The breakfast was basic and could do with a few more choices.
The location is very close to the freeway.

I will never stay with this brand hotel again. Poor is too high a grade to give. Continential breakfast a joke..pure carbs only. Beds were so bad it hurt your legs to get in and out. A/C do bad the room smelled of mildew. Mold on tiles in bath. Yucky.

This was the worst of all the La Quinta Hotels we stayed at in our 4 month trip. Smelly rooms, unclean, needs a complete gutting and redo; terrible breakfast, lousy coffee, only bananas for fruit; room card system was very slow and took multiple times to enter room and exit doors.

This is a nice hotel with wide halls, large rooms, and decent amenities. Well-priced and pet-friendly. Great location near the interstate and Constitution Trail, which is what brought us to Bloomington as we are avid cyclists. The staff were all friendly and helpful, and the included breakfast was better than average for this class of hotel. The bathroom area was nice, with granite countertops, nice fixtures, and plenty of towels. However, there were a few things that needed improvement. The flat-screen TV was nice, but had been set up for 4x3 aspect resolution (and not changeable as the "setup" button on the remote had been disabled), so the picture was small and the widescreen aspect could not be used. This is certainly an easy fix. The tub (fiberglass) was dirty on the bottom, though otherwise the room was very clean. At check-in and again when I went to the front desk to report a problem with the internet, I had to wait several minutes for a staff member to appear at the desk. I requested a text when the room was ready but did not receive one. The king bed was very soft and hurt my husband's hips, but the five fluffy pillows were very much appreciated. Last but not least, the hotel was full on Saturday night and very noisy from early (5:30 am) Sunday morning, with children running up and down the halls and many slamming doors. I know there's not anything the staff can do about that kind of thing, but it was MUCH quieter on Monday morning, so I would only stay there again during the week. The rate was quite a bit higher on Saturday night vs. Sunday, so I think this is just a very busy hotel on weekends and thus loud much earlier in the morning than we would prefer.

Room Tip: If staying on a weekend, I'd avoid rooms near the far ends of the hall (which adds one additiona...

If traveling with luggage to carry in Beware no elevator so you will have to carry luggage up stairs. Be sure to ask for lower level room.
Room was clean, needed some updates. Sheets were not fitted so wouldnt stay on mattress.
Bathroom very small.

This hotel is older but very clean and the staff is very nice. The room was good sized and they provide a good breakfast for free. It is also walking distance to Cracker Barrel and McDonalds. There isn't a pool.

Best customer service I have ever experienced at any other La Quinta. Big Clean and Comfortable rooms. Flat screen TV. Fridge, Microwave. Bathroom clean with lots of hot water. Shower head high enough. AC worked great. WiFi connected easy. Fast transfer rates. Older hotel, well maintained. Hotel rate and age priced just right. Hotel has awkward layout. Luggage carts available. Typical La Quinta Breakfast. I will stay here again for business or otherwise. Owners obviously care about their customers and take pride in their establishment.
