We had a good one-night stay, with friendly staff and well-maintained facility. Positives: > Excellent free breakfast. > Clean and well-maintained room. > Nice little dog 'park' > Multiple dining choices nearby Negatives: > Being required to pay an $8 resort fee for no reason. > Area just too busy due to the water park. > Difficulty finding parking spaces...

We come here three or four times a year from out of town to shop, relax, and enjoy the attached Watiki Waterpark. Never had a bad thing to say until this morning. Front desk clerk was short and rude to both my wife and I. We asked what time the water park opened this morning as we wanted to purchase...

Got away for a fun weekend, rooms were not vacuumed from last guest, weren't cleaned during our stay. This was the low point of our trip. No continental breakfast at this hotel either. Hard beds; I've stayed at several La Quinta motels far more comfortable and clean compared to this one.

I need to let you know about Amanda. She is so awesome!!!! She made me some sausages when the breakfast buffet ran out. She was so helpful and friendly to boot. You're lucky to have her, never let her go!

Parking was terrible, we had to park all the way by Perkins which was inconvenient traveling with an infant in winter. Not to mention staying next to a barking dog that barked my daughters entire nap time, all morning and anytime someone walked down the hall. I would not stay again. I'm sure if you have dogs, it's a great...

Long day travel in cold temperatures. Nice clean room, impressed with bedside plugins for CPAP, not impressed with no tea or ability to heat water and use our own tea in coffee area. Needed a hot shower, pulled back curtain and a big puff of blonde hair comes gracefully floating down from somewhere above. OK so I drop it in...

We were traveling through here and stay mainly at La Quinta properties. They are in a building with two other hotels and an indoor water park. It was extremely busy, lots of kids running around, up and down the hallway. The whole place smelled like chlorine. I guess if you have a family, this is a good place to stay....
