After a hard day all a traveler wants is a sympathetic and cordial reception. Ralee I believe was her name and yes she had a room and yes they would honor the coupon ( unlike the Comfort Inn the night before in Lenexa, Kansas). It does not cost anything to be nice and this was a place that valued nice. I was impressed and I had not even gotten to the room. The room was clean and well equipped. The largest flat screen I have ever seen in a motel room. Everything worked and the bed an pillows were first rate. If I had to nit-pick I would suggest that they hire a better drywall finisher next time as the drywall was not first rate. The breakfast had wide variety to please most tastes.
Really enjoyed our stay. No complaint about anything, Good sized room with microwave and mini-fridge. Bed was very comfortable. Excellent, expanded breakfast - cereal, breads, muffins, sausage links and patties, hash browns, biscuits, gravy, make-your-own Belgium waffles, scrambled eggs 3 ways - plain, with cheese, with cheese and jalapenos, hard boiled eggs, yogurt, juice, coffee. Grounds were well-tended and neat. I saw a dog walk area but did not use it. Everything was very clean. Outdoor pool was closed. Decent sized indoor pool and hot tub. There is an attached bar and grill with foods available for delivery and pick-up.
La Quinta Corporation should be very proud to have a Hotel of this standard representing them. Excellent through and through out. Recommend this Hotel to anyone travelling to Joplin. Check in was great quick and pleasant Staff at desk were well trained to accommodate a person with all they needs and wants, very knowledgeable about hotel and surrounding areas. A very nice Sports Bar "Pitchers" located inside the Hotel. Breakfast was unbelievable. They had everything a person could need for breakfast.
