Chandler, Arizona
Reviewed 21 December 2015

Everything was great except for having to wait for the front desk to help us and wasn't crazy about having to walk the exterior of the building to get to the lobby as opposed to getting to the lobby from inside the building. Regardless, I would stay here again if I had another business trip in Gainesville.

If you are used to predictable LaQuinta hotels and service, avoid this one. This tired old 3 story motel with its outside room entrances and elevators is reminiscent of the 60's....except for the mustard color paint job.

We have stayed in many LaQuints Hotels, this is the first time we have been disappointed. Not up to the standards of the others we have stayed at. The breakfast was the minimum, not the usual breakfast of eggs, sausage, grits etc. The later is what we got at the LaQuinta in Valdosta.

The college girls working the front desk were great and made the stay doable. It was a football weekend, so there was no where else to stay. It was clean enough and the sleeping area was updated, but the bathroom was just nasty. I think it had to be original to the 1980s. A bathroom can make or break a...

Facility has been updated and was convenient to I-75. Room was comfortable and clean. The Chinese restaurant across the street was very good and an easy walk. Hotel staff was very friendly and we have added this facility as one of out favorites.

We were very impressed with our first stay. The staff was friendly & knowledgeable. Check-in/check-out process was easy; it was pet-friendly, and the room was very nice. We're going to stay here again and we're going to look for more La Quinta Inns along our way!

First of all, it was overpriced. I have stayed in oceanfront properties for cheaper and they were 10 times nicer. Our room was ok, but I hate finding hair and stains on the walls. If this place was pricier because of the remodel, they should have remodeled everything. And the coffee pot in the room should not even be listed...
