    Super Comfy Bed and Pillows

    Parking lot had zero lights so arriving at night was unsettling as we thought the place was shut down. It was erie to walk in the open front door with literally no lights on outside anywhere and only back office lights on in the front office. The person on duty was pleasant enough and even helped us to change rooms away from a noisy pooch. The room was good and very comfortable bed and pillows! Grass outside for the pooches to play and run. The hotel is older and has been updated in the last 15 years or so. We like value and comfort over aesthetics.

    The toilet continued to run every time it was flushed, and had to be manually adjusted from the tank; there were NO instructions or information in the room, and it was needed for the TV: the buttons on the remote were “mushy” and had to be pushed repeatedly to even be able to move up or down to another channel. The young man at the desk couldn’t answer even simple questions like “Where can I mail a letter?” He said he wasn’t from there. None of those at the desk wore a mask despite several signs saying masks were required. I will say the lobby was clean and the room appeared clean as well.

    Friendly staff, clean room filled the need. Probably wouldn’t stay there again due to the high amount of noises semi truck traffic next door and the litter adjacent to the property itself.

    Weekend Stay

    This hotel definitely needs a makeover. I booked it for my husband and I. Wasn’t the greatest location, needs updating. Had an indoor pool but it was so cold you couldn’t get in.

    Easy And Off The Highway!

    we don’t usually book in advance when we’re road tripping. we stopped here for the night, and it was an easy choice. there isn’t much around the area in general but there is a pretty good sized pet relief area in the back. With COVID, many places we stayed were offering “breakfast” still but it was just cereal and yogurt. This Laquinta offered little sausage and biscuits, yogurt, and a granola bar in a bag to take back to your room, as well as a choice for bagels and cream cheese! It might seem small but when you are on a budget, this is a small nice gesture! It goes a long way! We also thought the beds were pretty comfortable especially after staying a few nights at other places during our trip that had literal rocks for beds! My dogs were also comfortable and the AC was really cold, my very floofy dog appreciated that 😊

    Dated hotel

    Hotel was OK and you can tell it was just fixed up. The hotel was worn and dated. It did have a good area for our baby to do her duty.

    Helpful staff

    Everything was clean and nice. We had a slight problem when we first checked in (not the hotel's fault). A dog in another room started barking and growling because our dog was in the next room. So, staff simply moved us to another room, no problem. Desk clerk was very friendly and helpful. Staff in the breakfast room next morning was very friendly and helpful. One of the best La Quintas I have stayed in.

    Dog friendly. Not far off highway.

    This location is right off of the highway. The facility is clean, but could use a sprucing up. I don't think that I would select this as a travel or vacation base. Everyone was professional. The breakfast was acceptable, but nothing to base a stay on.

    Mixed Review

    Good location, comfortable people beds and pillows, okay breakfast, and dog accomodation so much appreciated.

    Terrible smell (musty, moldy) in whole hotel aggravated allergies. Has there been a flood with lingering problems?

    good experience

    Had a good experience with this hotel booking thru BringFido. Walked our Shih Tzu thru the lobby to our 1st room near the exit door for ease of taking Bella out. Only negative, grass was too long for her to walk in. That’s it. Would recommend.

    Clean and very dog friendly

    Stayed here on our way to South Carolina. It is very clean despite seeing a good number of dogs there. The place looked as if it was recently remodeled or at minimum painted recently.

    They have a pet walking area across the parking lot from the main entrance.

    Although hotel is clean and staff was nice, the guests loitering by front door and in lobby were creepy. Followed us to elevator asking us what room we were in. With 2 young girls and 2 dogs (guys also said they were afraid of big Dogs) this was disturbing. Didn’t feel comfortable. Would not recommend this hotel for families with young kids. We also were not aware dogs were not allowed in lobby.

    Good place to stay

    I'm a young female traveler and I stayed here over the past weekend and felt pretty comfortable. The rooms are brand new and really nice. The staff was super nice. The only complaint I have is being on the third floor which is where I think they had all pet owners. It was difficult waking up at night with an 8 week old puppy and having to use the elevator or stairs. I also found the side doors difficult to use because my key sometimes didn't work and it was tight trying to fit my luggage through them. Other than that, no major issues.

    Quiet, comfortable, and friendly

    We found this hotel on bringfido.com and booked it through the La Quinta website. La Quinta has a standard pet policy that you sign to acknowledge on check in. It is pretty common sense. We went to the room which was in good condition, put down the dog beds and got ready for dinner. There are several dog friendly options within a couple of miles. We returned to the hotel. All four of us slept comfortably without disturbance even though there were several other dogs in residence. They have a breakfast bar that is good enough to get started. The staff was very friendly and our dogs appreciated the scratching.
