    Very good location

    Close to everything, very clean, friendly staff. Don’t even bother reading the negative views… they're nit-picking and/or overdramatic on everything. My two dogs and I enjoyed our stay there.

    Great location for our stay

    We were able to run several errands due to the location. We didn't get to enjoy the pool but it was nice to have a sliding door entry to the pool and sitting area in between the building. Breakfast was good and the room and areas were clean. The lobby was decorated for Fall, it was well done! The floor in the bedroom was beautiful, but our pup slipped a lot due to her injured leg. We used a towel on the ground since we didn't have a bed with us. She slept well. We would return to this location.

    Very satisfied

    Traveling with my cat. The room was clean and I had no worries leaving her in the room while I explored the area. I would recommend this hotel.

    La Quinta Cleateater

    Room was good. Bathroom shower trickled out and not enough hot water. The outside was not well kept. We have stayed previously at this chains facilities and this was the lower end of the hotels

    5 star for pets, 3 star for humans.

    For my dogs, I appreciate that the property has a nice, designated area with grass (my dogs love to go potty in grass-not dirt or rocks) and a receptacle with poop bags and a trash can. It is also well-lit at night and for the most part was mostly clean.

    For the humans, we were on the first floor. Convenient to visit the pet area, unfortunately that well-lit pet area made our room a well-lit area. So much so that our dogs were ready to go outside at 5AM because it’s daylight, why not? Second, the walls are paper thin. We heard the neighbor’s barking dog, the dog’s jingling collar, and the human’s conversations when they finally returned to their barking dog. You can hear the people walking like elephants above you and if your upstairs neighbor turns on their water, it sounds as if the pipes will come crashing through the wall...
