La Quinta Inn & Suites Appleton/College Avenue Reviews
of the 2 La Quintas in this area, this is the BEST ONE May 01, 2010
I found a great deal for the La Quinta Inn and Suites College Avenue online. Before I selected it, I read reviews. Apparently there are two La Quintas in Appleton, one being much nicer than the other one. This was the nice one. The other one is older, inside and outside, and has outdoor room entrances. I read poor reviews of that one, so I made sure to select this one!
And we were not disappointed! I booked a room online and when I called to confirm the reservation, I asked what type of room it was. We had a suite with one bed and pull out couch, but the upgraded us (for free!) to a two-bed room and pull out couch.
The first room of our suite had the couch, tv, desk, mini fridge and microwave. The "hall" contained the bathroom and a closet. The bedroom contained 2 full beds and another tv. It was very clean and neat. The first room had a block glass wall that let in light from the hotel hall, but it wasn't see-through.
The beds were not the most comfortable, but that might have been because I was sharing.
In the morning, we visited the breakfast area, first passing by a very nice outdoor courtyard with tables and chairs. The courtyard was only accesible from the hotel. The odd part about breakfast was that you had to walk through the pool room to get there - or maybe not, but that was the only way I saw.
The pool was large and the water warm. The air was steamy at 80 degrees F.
The breakfast area was large with lots of seating and a tv showing the news. The seating area was nice because many hotels have small, cramped breakfast seating areas. There was the usual breakfast fare of cereal, pastries, juice, milk, coffee, waffles and fruit. The milk was even labeled "fresh Wisconsin milk". Yum. Inside the breakfast seating area was a little play area for kids with different toys and also a game room with video games.
The main part of the hotel was very nice inside. The hall was extremely wide with chairs, tables and fake trees in the middle. All of the rooms had the glass block wall and it made the area very pleasing and relaxing. The hall was open to second floor, so it was very airy. Very nice.
This was a really nice place to stay and has some nice features and amenities. Next time I hope to stay for longer than one night!
