Family restaurant within walking distance, almost everything else to do or shop with in 10 minutes. Great indoor pool. The lake is a great place to take the kids, the zip line was great to do, the boats are great too.

Staff is super attentive but Hotel is not clean at all also they allow Pets which for us is a down side very expensive rate we got ! If at least towels and sheets were clean would be a good below average stay!

This La Quinta location is one of the best that I have stayed in. We stayed in a 2 room suite and it was nice and big with separate temperature controls in each room. The bathroom was large and spotless. The only thing that I would have preferred is bigger televisions.

Dear sticky4x4, Thank you for the review. I am sorry that you were unable to stay with us, because the pool was down. Unfortunately, our pool is not something we can plan on going down, in the last 5 months our pool has been down numerous times, with parts going out after 8 years of operating. I am deeply sorry...

Hotel is convenient to downtown, restaurants and casinos. Spacious, clean room made our stay very comfortable. No fee, pet policy is a plus! Breakfast lady, Maria, greeted us each morning and made us feel right at home. Will stay again!
