La Quinta is a wonderful hotel chain. First of all, they are dog friendly which is great if you travel with pets. Also, they are inexpensive. I usually pay between $65 and $80 a night. Also, you get free continental breakfast which includes waffles.
The hotel staff has always been wonderful and I have never had a problem with a clean room in La Quinta. Make sure you sign up for their Rewards card so you can earn a free night.
