Location to beach
Pool didn't seem big enough at times
Everything was more than I had expected. I am a single MOM of a seven year old son and a two year old daughter and WE had never done a weekend "getaway". WE had an AWSOME time!
At upon my first attempt to check in...one of the front desk clerks was very rude. I felt belittled and not worthy of renting at La Quinta. She had a weird spelling in her name
Great location on the beach. The free breakfast is awesome.
The parking is terrible. The hotel common areas are kept very warm. Our room was in the 80's temp wise when we arrived. The towels are thin and rough. There is a club next door and on our last night at the hotel, the club had a Ludicrous concert until 2 AM. We heard every beat of the drums. The concert goers filled up the hotel parking lot. The hotel told us we would have to park down the street and walk back in the dark. After I refused, they had an employee move their car so that I could park int he hotel parking lot.
The location beachfront access
The price and the bar next door placed their portable bathrooms right next to the pool so while in the pool you have to put up with the stench of portable restrooms. Very bad odors especially by the kids pool. Even though they have security guards there were still so many people who were not staying there utilizing the pool. For the near 400 dollars I spent I would have liked to not put up with those issues.
The only good thing is that the hotel is located beside the beach.
The hotel Was filled with dogs that's okay if you're a dog lover, the walls of the room were too thin they kept waking us up all night.
