La Quinta Inns & Suites

La Quinta Inns & Suites are a midscale hotel chain of 800+ hotels, almost all in the U.S. and in the same market segment as Hampton Inn, Fairfield Inn and Holiday Inn Express. This is a pet-friendly hotel chain with no additional fees for pets.

My road trip planning for summer travel has revealed some towns like Ely, Nevada on U.S. Highway 50 (dubbed the ‘Loneliest Road in America’) where La Quinta Inn is ranked #1 on TripAdvisor.com and the only other loyalty hotel options are Best Western, Ramada and Motel 6.

In my trip last month from California to Vancouver I found La Quinta to be one of the more popular hotels in several small towns I checked on TripAdvisor.com like Grants Pass, Oregon. La Quinta gets decent reviews in other places like Bend, Oregon and Wenatchee, Washington.
