    Love the hard floors as carpeting always feels gross. Floor was sticky in places, so could have been cleaner. Only problem for me was a side door that had been propped open to allow workmen in. BIG security hazard. When I reported it at 6 pm, (no workman around) nothing was done.

    Great stopover for night.

    The room was clean and designed/decorated to be pet friendly. The room had ample space for animals and humans to co-exist for night. Staff was very friendly.

    Needs some refurbishing

    Our room needed a bit of work-looks like there was a leak in the ceiling. Dog park needs to be cleaned up and no bags were available. Staff was friendly and welcomed our dog with a treat.

    Clean and Convenient

    We look forward to stopping at this La Quinta on our drives from Maine to Florida. It is conveniently just off I-95, the staff is pleasant, the rooms are clean and attractive and the grounds are well kept.

    Our dog was treated as a welcomed guest but no treat as was advertised. The room was clean and the bed was so comfy! We got a great night sleep!

    Convenient location

    Staff was friendly and accommodating. Room was large and very clean. Pet area could’ve been great but even though they supply bags and trash the area was filthy......shame on fellow travelers, no wonder places don’t like to have dogs.

    Very Dog Friendly

    We almost felt outnumbered by all the dogs and that’s a good thing! Could have been a little cleaner though.

    Very dog friendly with easy access

    Only downside is very loud with dogs barking in many rooms keeping each other up

    Pet-friendlier options elsewhere

    I travel through Florence often with my two dogs and this hotel was my least favorite. There was carpet in the rooms, the pet area in the back was badly lit and full of trash and the staff did not seem to agree with the chain's "pet friendly" stand. More importantly when we stayed someone had left their two dogs in the car overnight and the poor things barked all night. It was beyond heart-breaking. I usually stay in one of the smaller places an exit before or after where there is more space and less traffic to walk the dogs and you can just open the door and walk the dogs out.

    Clean Room, Great Location

    The room was very clean and quite. The hotel is located directly off 95 which worked well for our midway stop on our trip. There is a dog walk area behind the hotel which is not fenced but served our needs. Will definitely stay here on future trips.

  • Tristen

    Very welcoming

    East place to stay along I95. Only issue is the only grassy area is way in the back of the hotel.

    Convenient and clean

    The hotel was a little nicer than La Quinta’s I’ve stayed in before. The location was very convenient right off the highway, but it’s on a busy road, so we had to walk our dog around the parking lot. There is a grassy dog area, but it’s not fenced, so we couldn’t let her off leash to run. Would still stay again if in the area since the price was great.

    Would stay here again.

    Staff very friendly, ground floor location was good, room was dated but basically clean. Had to clean knobs, handles and switches, but we always do that. AC was on and there was no odor. The luggage carts were strange and very difficult to handle if your fur buddy needs their crate to sleep in. But at least they were available.

    Great stay

    Pet friendly flooring, no carpets in room. This place was clean, comfortable bed, great value. Most of all the staff was extremely friendly. I would definitely stay here again.

    Hotel stay

    Hotel and the room were clean. The staff was very nice. The only problem was that we did not get much sleep because of the trucks of what we think were construction workers reving their engines and coming and going in their trucks at night. The train going by woke us up too. Sorry, it would have been be a better rating, if we it was not so loud outside at night.

    Great for us!

    Booked at the last minute. Rooms were clean and smelled it! Staff so nice. Pet area had a lot of trash, only down side. Would stay there again.

    Nice area in back for walking dogs. We stay at this hotel whenever we travel north or south on I-95 with our dog.

    Great location

    Easy contactless access. Clean room, newly remodeled building (parts still in progress). In age of Coronavirus they only have coffee service and a bag breakfast but would definitely com back. Only thing that prevented five bones was a few pieces of trash left in room from previous occupants.

    Good Accommodations!

    The room was clean and the staff helpful. The dog walk area was close to the building and gave our two dogs plenty of areas to "sniff".

    Great location for dog friendly stay

    Hotel was clean, staff friendly. Comfortable room for overnight stay. Nice grassy area in back to walk your pup. Even provided dog treats. Close to 95 so easy access for travelers with plenty of restaurants nearby

    Excellent hotel

    We has a super comfy, spacious room, even a window you could open. Good wifi. Clean. Comfortable bed and furniture.

    Dog walking is only in the area out back, but it is a very nice, large grassy area.

    Humans and canines had a wonderful stay.

    Pet smart

    We were given a room on the 2nd floor and not near an exit, this was great so the dogs didn’t bark every time someone went in and out. There were many pets near us but that wasn’t a problem. Decent area to walk the dogs and clean up materials provided.

  • Judith
    Feb. 1, 2020

    this is one of the nicest LaQintas we have been in. We ravel with two well behaved labs..the room was really nice with extra chairs and floor space. The new manager was personable and responded within 20 minutes to a light bulb that needed to be replaced. Parking, breakfast, and area for dogs were all positive.

  • Lee

    Great Location

    Great place to stay. Right off I95. Good breakfast and staff was very friendly. Dog area was adequate. Unfortunately it was raining and it was very soggy. We will definitely stay there again.

    Very Clean But

    Very nice place, rooms clean. Only downside is where you have to bring Fido to pee. Way in the back of the property. But would stay again

  • Almeda

    Older but dog friendly

    The floors in rooms and lobby perfect for dogs . Outside walking area pretty far in back, small and not fixed. But staff very friendly and accommodating .

    Great Stay. Clean, first floor room near exit to dog walk area. Walkable to restaurants

    La Quinta Inn is always a pleasant stay. We like the fact that there are not rugs in the room- less fuss with dogs.

    They now charge $10 per dog and the money goes to a local animal shelter.

    We had a delightful stay. It seemed like half the guests had dogs, and the feeling was so welcoming. The room was clean and quite comfortable.

    Wonderful Doggie Loving Inn

    We stayed at this La Quinta site two times in the month of December. We had a wonderful experience. Friendly staff, and a nice hot breakfast. I wish the doggie park at the back of the hotel had been fenced but the doggies enjoyed that they had a place for them.

    Decent motel, great for dogs

    I was so disappointed that Wyndham imposed a pet fee at La Quinta hotels. It was the greatest marketing strategy. Many La Quintas jumped to $20. Gladly, however, this La Quinta hotel only charged $10 AND posted that they would donate the money to shelters! I can live with that! Nice room, area in the back to walk, poop bags available, friendly staff. Lots of eateries around. Stayed here other times, will stay again.

    Definitely pet friendly

    The staff was warm and welcoming. There were dogs everywhere, and a large field behind to walk the dogs. The only downside was there was quite a bit of barking going on all night long. The rooms were adequate and clean.

    A run down facility

    Have stayed with pets at various La Quinta but this one in Florence was a sad tired looking facility which may not have been too clean. The service at the front desk was indifferent at best. Will not use again.

  • Linda
    Nov. 17, 2019

    I seem to be posting similar comments on many of the properties we visit - positive regarding staff, but just adequate regarding rooms, mostly due to being outdated and in need of repair or refurbishment. Could it be that pet owners are being shunted to these rooms, vs nice ones, as a matter of policy? I wonder if others are having a similar experience.

  • Christopher

    Nice staff - wrong room and not clean

    The staff was great, but the room I was initially give had someone in it. Scary for the guest in the room at 11pm. In the room I was given, there was food in the refrigerator and water on the floor.

    However, the staff was great and apologized for the mix up. I was offered a discount, but it wasn’t followed through or actually given.

    Great! Wonderful For Pets!

    The gentleman that checked us in was phenomenal. SO NICE!! Very accommodating and sweet. The room was so conveniently located (he put a lot of thought as to where to put us to make it easier to get in and out of with an infant and a dog. The room was so clean and perfect for our stay. There was a dog park for dogs to go— which was clean. The free breakfast was so good! Eggs, waffles, yogurts, muffins, toast - COFFEE!! Perfect! Bed was so comfortable too. Slept great for the first time in months. La Quinta is now our preferred hotel on our travels. Thank you!!

    This place is a definite yes if you’re in the area. Not like typical dirty La Quintas. Huge, we’ll manicured did area out back. And it’s almost all people with pets so word has gotten out. The staff brings their pets to work too. What’s not to like?!?

    This hotel loves dogs. We brought 2 pugs. We stayed one night on our way from Virginia to Florida. Room is well appointed, clean, and comfortable. Dog biscuits in the lobby and a large grassy area out back with clean up supplies. This will be our family’s go to hotel whenever we want to break up our drives south.

    Clean Hotel, Stupid Policies?

    Pet friendly yes. If your dog has his barker removed. Checked in and cleaned up after our 15 hours trek. Did our dog diligence (walked him fed him, settled him in.). Went 4 doors down for dinner, but got two phone calls in 4 minutes about our dog barking, and there’s a $25 fee for barking.

    I got news for ya. There were at least a dozens barking dogs in the wing we were we on. Go back to the hotel to bring our dog with us, and guess what, he was laying down quietly on his bed.

    Oh, it was 745pm. I could see if it was 10pm plus... Pet friendly? Sorta.

    Great Pet Friendly Hotel

    Hotel room was super clean. No carpet in rooms makes it a big plus. There was a specific dog area with doggy bags for clean up.

    Hotel employees were friendly.

    Plenty of dogs in the doggie area but you wouldn’t know it when you are in your room.

    Would highly recommend and would stay again.

    Just Right!

    Clean and newly renovated. Spacious room with a couch. Wonderfully welcoming staff, places to eat nearby, and of course, very pet-friendly.

    Bed was quite comfortable - got a restful night’s sleep. Quiet place, considering how many pets were inhabiting other rooms.

    Breakfast was tasty, and included real scrambled eggs. No pet fee!

    Will definitely stay here again if I’m in the area.

    Fabulous Place to Stay

    This hotel offered everything we needed and then some. It was immaculate, new, conveniently located and the staff was super helpful. Restaurants nearby, a safe place to walk the dog and a good breakfast that included eggs. I would definitely stay here again!

    Dirty room and hallways

    We stayed here before and after Hurricane Irma. They actually raised the rates by $40.00 after the hurricane. While the bathroom was relatively clean, the floors, carpets and refrigerator were dirty. There was trash in the hallways when we arrived and still there when we left. We stayed at a Residence Inn in Fairfax, VA the night before which head immaculate.

    Nice, quiet hotel

    The staff was very friendly, and the hotel seemed either new or newly renovated. There were lots of dogs, but it was very quiet. We could't hear a thing in the room. Also, there's a nice, well-lit grassy area.
