We stayed here overnight on our way to our final destination. It was easy to find. Check in was very quick (we had pre registered on line). We travel with a small dog so had hoped for a first floor room or something close to an exit. No luck as this place was fully booked and people were being turned away when we got there at 6 pm.
The elevator and hallway was not in the best shape. This is not a newer hotel.
The room appeared clean but a bit tired. The bed was fairly comfortable but sagged a bit. Things went downhill from there. The HVAC unit sounded like a helicopter when it came on so we had to listen to that until the room reached temperature. Not fun to be woken up by a helicopter every hour or so. The people in the next room had a dog that barked on an off all night. Luckily my dog was so tired from our trip that she didn't start up too.
I needed to iron my shirt in the morning but the iron wouldn't hold water so it spit back out in puddles. Great way to start the day.
We are out of here now to continue our trip. Hope the next LaQuinta is much better!
