My husband and I stayed at this hotel for about a month while we were waiting for our house to close. I will start off by saying this hotel is not really designed for long-term stays like that. The rooms are your standard hotel room with a small fridge and small microwave. But we were able to get a good...

Not at all impressed with this hotel. I know they have begun renovations on the swimming pool but the money would be better spent on improving the quality of their beds and linens. If you like sleeping on concrete then the bed is perfect for you. The linens were coarse on your skin. The air conditioning unit rattled every time...

Good motel, especially if you have a pet. Some areas under renovation and remodeling and will enhance visit greatly. Breakfast has an excellent selection of foods and a very pleasant and helpful attendant. Lots of nearby services, restaurants and shopping.

Good place to stop on the drive to Florida. Clean and handy to the highway exit. Reserved ahead of time and only had to say name at front desk and everything was ready.. Wifi was sluggish though..that was the only complaint.

This hotel is fine for those traveling with dogs. The property is an old generation one Hampton Inn. Currently the property is undergoing some much needed renovations. The staff was excellent and very welcoming. The surrounding areas are a tad questionable. To get to the property you need to thru the parking lot for the Comfort Inn or the Shoney's...

I commend that staff for trying very hard but the hotel is hard to find, in an unsightly area and gas was siphoned from our vehicle overnight in the parking lot. Motel is comfortable enough but I will not return for the aforementioned reasons. I had reservations at another Columbia LaQuinta and got a call at the last minute that...

We stayed one night to take a break from our drive home from Florida. We came upon it online since they allow pets and we had our dog traveling with us. The staff was very pleasant upon checking in and out as well. Even the lady tending the breakfast in the morning was very kind and accommodating to everyone who...

We stayed only one night, choosing this LaQuinta for its convenient location of I-77 and that this hotel permits pets. Our room was spacious and clean. We walked into an extra fold out bed that we did not request, but was much appreciated for our children. Customer service was above average. Breakfast was average, but not a focal point for...
