“Great Mattress!”
Reviewed 9 September 2013

We make it a point to stay at hotels we can trust for consistently clean rooms and good service. We had a good experience here. I had made an online reservation because it was the Labor Day weekend and the desk person actually knew my name (I guess most guests are walk-in). He was very nice and called me by name at check out. The room was a king suite (just $15 more). Very clean, nicely decorated. I would definitely stay again.

After a long day on the road and a bit of a search to find a room we found the La Quinta. It was wonderful, clean, quiet, roomy and a nice big bathroom with endless hot water. We ordered take out which came quickly and enjoyed it on the sofa, so nice not to have to eat where we sleep, and watched a little tv on the big flat screen. Would definitely stop here again.

Flea spray out in the open was a good tip of what I was in for, I stayed there because work placed me there. I saw the cockroach the last day climbing up the wall from the food counter. The tv worked fine and the smelly room was cold so I could get by, but if my family was with me I would try some where else.

Room Tip: bring your dog, no problem here

We usually stay at a Marriott product (ie: Fairfield or Residence Inn) on our way South, but chose LQ this time because of their pet friendly policy. Location was excellent, as it was right off the highway, and it was indeed pet friendly. However, people friendly was a whole other story! We arrived at 5:30 in the afternoon after a grueling 9 hours of traffic on I95. There was one man at the desk and very few cars in the lot. (The same man was there when we returned from dinner at 9:00, and again the next morning at checkout), He was not very friendly, did not seem to know how to smile, and curtly informed us that we could not have a ground floor room as we requested for our 5 month old puppy's need to get outdoors quickly. When we got to our 3rd floor room, we were greeted by an overpowering smell of disinfectant and a blast of frigid air from the antiquated A/C unit. The king-sized bed was comfortable and clean, but everything else was very shabby and badly in need of updating. The bathroom toilet seat was broken and sliding around, the shower head was cracked and the sink was stained and crazed. All the carpets were worn.

Breakfast was only adequate, but the server there was a large, sloppy looking man, using a dirty rag to wipe down counters occasionally. The chambermaid had 2 children following her around.

All in all, we were not happy and will not return. Hopefully by our next trip, Marriott will have reevaluated their pet policies!

We have stayed here several times over the past 4 years when we have travelled from FL to NY. It always met our needs because of reasonable price, accommodations, and pet friendly policy. We had a voucher for a free night due to a problem encountered by my husband last year, so we stayed here again. What a change over the years. I don't know how often hotels generally renovate, but this LQ is in need of one. Carpets are worn, a light fixture broken, and huge weeds in the flower bed! Our room had a broken toilet seat when we arrived, and rather than replace it, the front desk clerk ( who was the only one at the desk!), glued it. We noticed the seat wasn't even the right size, so no wonder it was broken. On the positive side, breakfast was good and the room clean. Probably won't stay here again unless changes are made.

Desk service for check-in and check-out were excellent. Breakfast buffet was consistently of good quality and nothing too surprising--omelet, sausage, fruit juice (orange + apple), yogurt (two low-fat flavors), and some breads and cereals would be enough to get you through to lunch. I would definitely stay here again.

This is a very good value in the Richmond area. Traveling from the northeast to Florida the Richmond area is a good overnight stay area and most budget hotels are poor places to stay.

As one reviewer said, there is none at the desk, but there is a person on call that responds quickly. The room is large and clean. The room has a micro/fridge and coffee maker. The room has a flat panel TV with over 50 channels, but none are in HD.

Breakfast was excellent. Hot and cold breakfast items, including eggs and sausage.

The down side is that traffic is a little noisy on the front side of the hotel.

We would definitely stay here again.
