I try to stay in Choice Hotel properties that are pet friendly (although most charge extra, unlike LaQuinta) and this one was out of the way, being a couple of miles off I-10, but it was worth the drive. The desk person gave us an even lower rate than we had been quoted on line, and our third floor room was great. Morning meal was the usual, but was good. Excellent staff that kept inquiring about our comfort. Would probably have given excellent rating, but ice machine was broken.
