Very nice room, well-appointed, and clean. Breakfast had some nice options and everything went smoothly with my stay. The only minor drawback was that the stairway I took up to my room wasn't very clean, but that wasn't a big deal. I will keep this La Quinta in mind the next time I need a hotel in Rockford!
Several years ago stayed in a few different La Quinta hotels out west which we’re fine... this was old... staff and facility not even mediocre .... repairs have been made very poorly. Never again is the category that La Quinta will occupy for us... the photos speak for themselves ????
