We picked this particular hotel because they're totally dog friendly, and because we felt assured we'd have a nice room and a decent breakfast the next morning. We weren't disappointed at all...the guy's at the check-in counter were both friendly. Joey checked us in without a bit of hassle and made certain we knew when breakfast was served. We went up to the second floor and were greeted by all sorts of barking from various rooms, but when we got to our own room and closed the door, we never heard another bark the entire night. The room had two large comfy beds, very high ceilings, and a nice bathroom with plenty of counter space and a better than average shower.
Shoneys was within walking distance, and so we rushed over before closing to have some greasy good food! The staff there was very friendly and though they were cleaning up for the night, we didn't feel the least bit unwelcome.
Other things to note: The hotel was apparently recently purchased by La Quinta and has been totally renovated. There's plenty of room outside to walk the dogs, and there's a new grassy area built just for the dogs in the rear of the property. Other than the barking in the hallway, you'd never know there were so many dogs in the place that night...no smells, no puddles, no dirty paw prints in the hallways. Very nice and clean. I was driving a moving van with a car transporter (very big), but there was plenty of room to park it in the rear of the property. Sadly, breakfast was just OK compared to another La Quinta I visited last year (nothing to write home about), and after I paid $100, I would expect something a little nicer on the buffet.
Sure, there were other hotels with cheaper rates, but there are no pet fees when staying at La Quinta Inn & Suites, and certainly no hassles. If you're traveling with a dog or two, I'd recommend staying here.
