“La Quinta was better than I expected”
Reviewed 6 July 2014

I've never stayed at a La Quinta so we when I saw this on Priceline I was apprehensive. We were travelling from N. Carolina to Florida and needed somewhere to sleep for the night that wasn't expensive. We got a great deal through Priceline and I was very happy with our room. It was very spacious and clean. The bathroom was nice and our room had a refrigerator and microwave. The location was great, being just a minute off the interstate and with fast food across the street and local restaurants within 15 minutes. The free breakfast in the morning was just what we needed before getting back on the road.

We were traveling from FL to New England with our small dog. This place accepts pets and was remarkably quiet and clean. I could detect no animal odors in the room. The room needed some updating but appeared clean and comfortable. Breakfast was fairly standard. It is a good place for an overnight stop.

I was a little skeptical from reading some reviews but we were peasantry surprised with our quick stay here. The day was difficult with many delays on I-95 and we were 3 hours later than anticipated when we arrived. Traveling with our golden retriever there are many hotels that don't allow large dogs so we have to pre-plan and get a hotel that will accept us. When we arrived we were greeting by a very pleasant front desk clerk and went to the room. The room was spacious and clean- the only issue was with the air conditioner- we couldn't lower it to make it warmer(it was a bit cold for my daughter). The hotel was located next to a Days Inn motel and when we were walking our dog at night there were men hanging around drinking outside their doors all night- not necessarily a safety risk, but as always, be aware of your surroundings. We would stay here again when traveling the I-95 corridor.

On a recent trip from Florida to Maryland and back, my wife, I, and our 2 dogs stayed at this La Quinta. It's obvious that this location has been recently remodeled.On the way north we were given a 3rd floor room, though we had requested a 1st floor room when we made our reservations online. On the way back we had a 1st floor room. Both rooms were clean, and well maintained, but the 3rd floor room was in a little better,fresher condition. Both had a fridge, microwave, and large flatscreen TV. We had no issues with security. A word to the wise, the key had the phone number of the local Domino's pizza. We ordered from there. The pizza was extremely late, and once it arrived we didn't even finish it. It ranked as one of the 3 worst pizzas we had ever attempted and failed to eat. Don't order from there. We will stay at this location again when we travel to Maryland.

I didn't expect much and got even less. The room smelled like dog, not really a surprise since pets are allowed. The bath tub needs to be recaulked, there was a toothpick and open package of artificial sweetner on the floor. There was hair on the towels. There were no comforters only hospital blankets on the bed. Glad it's only for a couple hours of sleep.

Traveling with my dog for the first time ever, I leaned heavily on La Quinta for quality, pet-friendly lodgings during a recent road trip. I called ahead to secure my room when I was certain that Florence, SC would be a good stopping point. Check in was a breeze and the room was cool, clean and very comfortable. I felt very safe walking the dog around in the designated area and coming and going into the hotel. The room was well-appointed and I got a great night's rest and was ready to hit the road early the next morning.

We stayed at this inn because my husband had to be there on business and we were traveling with our small dog. We have stayed at LaQuinta Inns before and the rooms have been really good. We really appreciate there are some hotels which allow dogs without another added fee. This room was average but the bed was very comfortable. The issue we had with this hotel was when my husband left the next morning for an 8 a.m. meeting. He was at his car putting his bags in the car when he was blocked in the parking space by two black men in a Nissan car wanting money to get home. He told the men he had nothing for them, got in the drivers seat and started the car. Very fortunate for him, they decided to move on. At first it just made him mad but then after thinking about it for awhile, he realized he was in a very dangerous situation. He has traveled extensively in the southeast in his 35 years of working and this is the first time this has ever happened to him. However, this is the second time in one month that he and a co-worker were in the Florence, SC area on business in very public places and were approached by people with a sob story wanting money. While he was in his meeting, I stayed in the hotel room. While in the room, two housekeepers were outside our room in the hallway having a very heated argument, yelling at each other up and down the hall. I did not feel safe in our room in the hotel and had I known what had happened to my husband that morning, I would have been very upset. I don't think we will ever stay in a hotel in Florence, SC again and we will definitely not stay at this hotel again.

I honestly can not say I blame you under the circumstances for not wanting to return. I am truly sorry that your experience was not a very positive one. This is not usually the type of things that go on around here. On behalf of the entire hotel staff we would like to apologize for any inconvenience you and your husband experienced while staying with us and we hope that you would consider giving us another chance in the future.
