    Awesome Accommodations

    The room was a little stark but well appointed. We still can’t get used to no carpeting in a hotel room. No designated grassy area but there is some in front of the hotel. The breakfast was really good!

    Easy to find off the interstate

    Very dog friendly, lots of grass at the hotel and lots of grass if you want to go for a walk. No carpeting, a plus in my book, the room was clean, and the breakfast was elaborate.

    Good value

    Not the finest hotel, but it’s clean. The service is good. It’s very dog friendly (which was my goal) for two large dogs. Price was great. Breakfast was barely passable, but it was free with the room… you get what you pay for. I’m sure I could have gone next door to Cracker Barrel if I wanted a better breakfast.

    1. BringFido reservation was not in their system when we arrived. Fortunately they had a pet room available.
    2. Room on first floor (w/adjoining room door)…felt like the ladies and dogs in the adjoining room were in our room the entire night. Could hear their conversations perfectly, every little morsel of dog food being poured into their bowls, etc. Had to have our TV on louder than normal to hear it over them.
    3. Spotlights in the parking lot. Great! But not when it points right into the room (through cracks in the curtains).
    4. Curtains were at the height of the AC so they blew whenever the fan was on, and then more light came in.
    5. Beds were very firm.
    6. Breakfast was pretty good.
    7. Staff was nice.
    8. Pet area was small but across the street was more grass for a nice walk.
    9. Clean. No carpet.

    Great place!

    This place is awesome. All the pets are put on the second floor. The rooms are animal friendly. All tile and not carpet. Very clean.

    Soooo nice!

    We’ve been driving across the country with our pups staying at dog friendly and budget friendly places. This has by far been the nicest experience. Clean, comfortable, good breakfast, nice staff. Great experience!

    New building

    Yay for no carpet!!! Got most of the essentials right and we slept well for one night. Friendly staff; good location; cozy bed sheets and comforter; cold AC; hot water. Unfortunately the walls and ceiling are very thin! We could hear next door's TV and alarm clock, and upstairs stomping around shook the walls. Also not a lot of green space for walkies.

    Newly renovated!!

    Great spot for a one night, just passing through stay. The new tile and vinyl tech flooring are beautiful and pet friendly/versatile. We stayed in the king room with the pull out sofa. Our only "meh" about our stay was that pull out sofa was really meant for one, not two teens.

    This spot has good lighting in the parking lot, some grass for the pups and is newly renovated. The walls are thin though so you can def hear other guests.

    Hotel could care less that I had a dog. However, they put us in a room where they were doing construction until 7 pm or later. It was very frustrating as the dog would not settle down due to all the noise.

    Front desk person did not look professional. Place was run down. The breakfast area was in the tiny lobby and unappetizing

    Convenient location

    The good thing is there are 2-3 other hotels around with plenty of grassy areas to walk. This place is under construction but the rooms were clean and acceptable.

    Newly remodeled rooms

    Friendly staff. There isn’t any dog treats offered as stated in description. Building is under construction as it is being remodeled. The doggy poop bag dispenser was empty, bring bags. Grass was plentiful out front and clean. The room is very nicely remodeled and doesn’t have carpet. The only reason for the lower score is that the walls are paper thin. Can hear people talking and traffic from the interstate. People staying here were fairly quiet, the hotel just has super thin walls. The parking lot and grass area has great lighting at night.

    Exactly what I was looking for

    First time traveling with my dogs and staying at a hotel with them. I’ve got a big dog and a little one and this place was perfect for what we were looking for. Hard floors, doggie bags, plenty of grass for them to go out on. There was some construction going on at the hotel so it wasn’t fully together but other than that it was a good trip.

    Nice but...

    Room was nice but the new flooring is very slippery, for dogs and people. No designated potty area or pick-up bags therefore available grass not picked up.

    Snow had been plowed from parking lot but no cleared area to walk dogs or relief area. When we asked the front desk staff where the pet area was located she stated, "anywhere you can find grass". There was none! Also ants in the room, but it was a nice room with the exception of the thin walls.

    Lots of grass

    Pet friendly and clean. Surrounded by a lawn strip. My only complaint is it was fairly noisy And I prefer rooms without carpet. Probably wouldn’t stay here again. I’d rather pay a little more for a better room. Also no treats or bowls provided which was in the description.

    Great stay

    Clean hotel, accommodating staff and super nice shower! Only thing that I wasn’t aware of is that first let us free, second is $20/stay. No big deal, I may have missed the fine print, but just a heads up. Would stay here again!

    Room was ok

    Nothing spectacular here. I was a bit disappointed actually. Hallways had spots on carpeting, room was not as pictured

    Clean and comfortable!

    The room was clean, well stocked and super comfortable bed. Perfect price! Just a heads up if you have a super alert pup like mine. The walls are really thin so he was growling throughout the night at other guests coming and going. Would definitely stay again!

    La Quinta has really gone downhill

    This place is a literal pit. Once again some things can be overlooked due to the pandemic, but I could not even take a shower. I had to take a bath on the nasty no-slip cover in the tub. ICK! Towels and pillows etc were awful. I complained about the tub, but the sweet, young men at the desk wearing their masks half over their faces had no suggestions. Mt traveling companion just got another room. That was just wrong! We got out of Clive as fast as possible the next morning. NO BONES!

    Nice Location!

    Easy on/off near IH35. Friendly staff. Next to Cracker Barrel. Hotel a little dated, but comfortable. Good area to walk a pet.

    Clean and quiet

    Conveniently located off the highway, clean and quiet rooms. Enough areas to walk to so that you and Fido can get your steps in. Plenty of nearby amenities to chose from to replenish, refresh, and recoup.

    Can’t complain

    Driving cross country from Nevada to Maine might be daunting enough but with a dog can be a little more. Gotta stop more especially with an older doggy. With BringFido app, it’s made this journey AMAZING because I find great places to stay with my dog. This place was clean, quiet and comfortable. Plenty of grassy area for the pup potty! On to the next place!

    Great place

    Great place! We didn't have any issues. Our room was nice and staff was very accommodating. La Quinta is very pet friendly. We have 5 dogs, no pet fee or deposit has helped us tremendously because we are traveling cross country.

  • Hayden

    The hotel was decent and the staff was super nice, but you could hear everything going on by and above you, so if you have a dog that is observant this isn’t the place to stay

    Nice Stop

    Dropped in here at sunset on a Saturday and had no trouble getting a room. Place was hopping with dogs, but everyone had theirs under control. Nice grass and trees in back with a waste station.

    There are two restaurants within walking distance, at least one of which does take out (sadly their patio is not dog friendly).

    Good stop on a road trip. Our young dog on his first trip barely noticed any noise.

    Clean and quiet

    We were very happy to arrive and find people coming in and out with many cute dogs - large and small. It was completely quiet overnight. Our room was clean and comfortable. We had a room with 2 full beds, which would be small if more than one person were sharing a bed, but were perfect for 2 separate adults and our 4 dogs (no extra dog fees!)

    Litter Box

    Stayed here overnight with our small dog. Yes, it was pet friendly, but it smelled terrible. Both our room and the entire second floor smelled very strongly like an old litter box. The window of our room was broken and would not lock. There was a stopper on it so that it could not open all the way, but there was plenty of room for a person to come in or child to fall out. I think it’s fair to expect basic security. The lobby was nice and breakfast food options ok but not great. I would not recommend this hotel.
