Historical Traveler Reviews La Quinta Inn & Suites Denver Airport DIA
We got in late on a Thursday night and unfortunately found our room right next to the elevator. However, we never heard it once nor did we have a problem with airplane noise. The best part was that it was a very clean room! No surprises! We used the Park & Fly and the transportation to the airport was efficient and on time. I would absolutely book this motel again when flying out of DTW.
Rooms were ok
Not bad, but not as good as Country Inn and Suites airport, Stayed at both, but Country Inn was nicer. La Quinta did not have a mini fridge.
Stayed one night here after arriving at Denver airport. Shuttle service was efficient although drivers weren't very friendly.
The young girl at the reception was extremely helpful and friendly, which was great after getting off a long haul flight. Rooms were great, and very clean. Breakfast was terrific, hot and cold items. Would highly recommend and would stay again without a doubt.
Great place to relax to and from airport
We stayed at La Quinta two nights in mid-June because we wanted to be close to the airport. The rooms were very spacious (which is nice when you've been on a plane for 9 hours!) and clean.
The thing we enjoyed most about this hotel was the courtyard. We were able to relax with a drink in the gazebo each night before we went to bed - a nice touch!
The only suggestion I have is that the hotel should have a luggage storage room. We had to check out at 11:00 and our international flight did not leave until 8 PM. They had nowhere to store our luggage, which was very inconvenient for us. We managed, but had expected more since this is most likely a hotel for travelers.
One more note: The area around this hotel is building up quickly, so there are more restaurants and other stores located close-by. I noticed a bank starting construction and a newly opened Walgreens (although you have to drive to these). Staying close to the airport doesn't mean you are stuck in the middle of nowhere!
I would recommend this hotel because it has a free shuttle to the airport, nicely landscaped courtyard and spacious rooms.
Good Airport for Travelers
We stayed at the La Quinta after a late flight in from Cancun. We wanted to extend our vacation by another night, so we called from the airport phones, and told them we were honeymooners, and they gave us a fairly decent deal.
We arrived and guest service was very friendly. Our room was spacious and I loved the way it was set up. Nice bathroom, nice comfy big king bed, and lots of channels on the tv. We used the indoor pool and hot tub down on the first floor, and it was really nice, though the pool was a tad bit cold. We had a late dinner at Bennigan's down the street, and had great service even though it was pretty late.
Breakfast the next morning was good - make your own omelets or waffles. Check out was a breeze, and we were on our way home. Only thing I was disappointed in was that there wasn't enough parking - we had to park clear around back, but we just pulled up the car in front to load the next morning.
Great hotel, and yes it's quiet. Can't beat only being 10 minutes from the airport! We will definitely stay again for our next early flight out or late flight in.
La Quinta Denver Airport
I'd rate the La Quinta Denver Airport location at average to above average. We tried to book hotel rooms for overnight stays on the way to and from Mexico. Unfortunately, on the way to Mexico, our travel date was also the weekend of a major sporting event in Denver, so rooms were in short supply. La Quinta had availabilty and the rates were reasonable (booked on Expedia with AAA discount.) I booked based on the quality I've seen at our local La Quinta, and was not disappointed in the hotel in Denver.
The hotel room itself was very roomy, with a comfortable couch, coffee table, desk and chairs. The bed was also comfortable. The bathroom was very large, bright and clean. The room included a small refrigerator and microwave, plus coffee maker.
Service from reception staff the first night was strange. Arriving around 6pm, we hoped to find a restaurant nearby that was open. The staff seemed irritated that we asked for recommendations on where to go. The hotel itself is located near a Bennigan's and Village Inn, as well as several other hotels. The hotel next door had a restaurant -- which was empty and closed by 8pm. The pancake house was also empty. Bennigan's was doing good business, and the food was fine. On the way back through Denver the staff was more interested in recommending local options -- in fact, Bennigan's delivered right to our room, which was great after a long day of travel. There is a new Ruby Tuesdays restaurant being built behind the La Quinta, and the area is obviously still developing. Not much to do once you are in the hotel at night.
On check in the first night we asked about the free airport shuttle. They advised we did not need to sign up for a ride, however I'd strongly advise getting your name on the list. There were problems on the trip to the airport, with a lot of competition between air flight crews and people trying to get to the airport. The crew members felt they should have priority on spots on the bus. Everybody got there, but it was a cozy ride...
La Quinta offers a decent free breakfast bar with cereal, baked goods, "made to order" omelets, juice, coffee, etc. They also put out cookies in the evening.
We'd stay here again. It's not the tops, but a very good deal for the price.
Ok but noisy
We stayed at the La Quinta DIA for one night before an early flight. The staff were helpful and friendly and the room was big (although the decor was a bit dated and dark). However the room has a door linked to the next room and we could hear everything next door - loud TV and a lady on the phone all evening. Thankfully I had ear plugs but my husband didn't and he was woken up several times by noise (included very loud flushing toilets!) There was also a lot of banging and strong food smells from the kitchens as there was a catered conference taking place.
I would highly recommend this hotel
The La Quinta Inn, Tower Road is about six miles from Denver International airport but it can't be on any flight path because the location is so quiet.
We had a large room with a king bed, lovely bathroom. Everything was very clean.
A good breakfast with omlettes, "make yourself" waffles, toast etc., cerials, fruit, juices, boiled eggs, pastries.
I would definately recommend this hotel to anyone wanting to stay close to the airport.
Very nice hotel
This is a fairly new hotel and quite nice. I love most of the La Quinta Inns I have stayed in previously and this one will be on my list to stay at again.
The rooms are quiet, clean and fairly spacious. Some soft noise from the hall can be heard as guests go in and out of rooms. This hotel must be out of flight patterns because no jet noise is ever heard.
Breakfast at this hotel is the typical continental breakfast with premade omletes that can be reheated, cereals, juice, breads, etc.
The hotel provides a shuttle to and from the airport.
There are a couple of resteraunts a few blocks down the street. One is an affiliate of Baker's Square. The food is good but the service really lacked. At 9:30 at nite, with 4 - 5 tables occupied, it took over an hour to get a cup of fruit, 1/2 a sandwich and a house salad. Then the order wasn't correct.
Awesome customer service-even after bad experience
I was very pleased with the DIA La Quinta. I booked a room through La Quinta. I then called La Quinta to confirm that they do Park N Fly (should have called before I made reser.)!!! They told me no! So, I cancelled the reservation-incurring a $25 charge through Travelocity :( I then called La Quinta back tonight and they said that they do offer Park N Fly-I was so pissed off!!! I explained the whole situation to the lady and she told me that if I still booked with them she would take $25 off my room cost-making it only $49-what a bargain. These people definetely understand the word customer service!!! AND EVERYONE-DO NOT USE TRAVELOCITY UNLESS YOU WOULD LIKE TO GET SCREWED-I KNOW I NEVER WILL AGAIN!

Our flight from Oslo to London was scheduled for 7:55am. We were able to get on the express train and make it to the airport by 5:45am. Miraculously, there was no queue at the BA counter (this is their only flight at this time, I believe). We got to the counter, the first lady mashed some buttons, had a troubled look on her face and passed us to another agent. He said that while we were booked for the flight, the ticket hadn't actually ...

... Memphis on time. Went to pick up our Enterprise Rental Car. As it was Friday night of the Labor Day weekend it was extremely busy. When we were finally taken to our car, we were then told that our car had been recalled and they would need to find us another car.
