I needed to be in the Clifton area to attend a family wedding in a nearby town. There aren't many choices and I selected La Quinta with misgivings because, quite frankly, I don't have a good image of the La Quinta brand. I was pleasantly surprised for the following reasons:
The hotel seems to have been newly renovated and my room was relatively large, new and amply furnished, refrigerator, in-room safe, adequate lighting for reading, an easy chair with a standing lamp next to it for reading, good desk for my laptop and other things, microwave, and very comfortable. Immaculate bathroom with adequate amenities.
Free Internet access in the room.
Surprisingly varied breakfast, much more than just coffee and toast.
Friendly and helpful staff. A morning check-in request was immediately honored, as was a late check-out request. Several inquiries at the desk were competently handled with smiles.
Yes, as several reviewers have mentioned, the hotel is not easy to find and I had difficulty in getting my GPS to recognize the address, but I did get there using Mapquest and telephone instructions from the front desk.
Two negatives, but not biggies: (1) the breakfast room itself (as opposed to the very good breakfast food) is like a school cafeteria and has two TVs going full-time. I like to read the newspaper during breakfast, but couldn't because of the noise, so I put on my noise suppressing earphones and listened to my iPod instead; and (2) during my six-day visit, La Quinta played host to numerous bus tours, including several groups of high school students. Although I have no complaints about their behavior, their presence did lead to a very crowded breakfast room, for which the staff was inadequate to keep the tables clean, and more noise in the halls than I would have liked.
Yes, I would stay there again.
