Waking up on the woof side…

Loyal and faithful customers say bow wow to personable, friendly service

The LaQuinta Orange County chain hotel is very conveniently located near to the John Wayne airport (5-10 minutes), they offer an airport shuttle service and you can leave your car in their parking lot and it will be here when you return. The inn is business class AND they also offer pet friendly lodging. Need to bring your bird, cat, rabbit, ferret, or dog on a business trip? No problemo !

we stayed on the top floor (third), above the heated pool and jacuzzi in a king suite, with fridge, microwave, king size bed, couch, desk, nicely furnished, with wireless, free local phone calls and TV… The rooms (183, all of which are pet friendly) and lobby are very clean and comfy. We received a nice box of chocolates, good for me, not for cici… no dog treats but four times a year, when there are dog shows in town, the pets receive pet goodie bags and the inn is sold out.

During the week, most of the guests are business people traveling to and from southern California but on the weekend, visitors are more family oriented. The Magic Kingdom (Disneyland) is only 15 minutes away and the inn is four miles from shopping malls, (The District with shops such as Pet Smart), post office, banks, fast food and several restaurants. The Inn also has four meeting rooms for business conferences and workshops.

In the area, there are numerous pet shops, pet sitters, doggie daycare and groomers as well as dog trainers.

LaQuinta also provides a delicious hot and cold breakfast with hard boiled eggs, fresh hot waffles, muffins, cereals, juice, donuts, yogurt, and hot coffee from 6 – 9 am.

this hotel is budget conscious and a great value for the pricey area near Newport Beach. Other hotels in the area do not offer pet friendly lodging. A couple of lower priced motels do but the service and amenities are nowhere near the quality that LaQuinta offers. In this economy, why not receive the best barks for the bucks. Cici says four paws up !
