work on the bright side®

Welcome to the Bright Side® at La Quinta Inns & Suites®.

Who is La Quinta?
We help brighten the day of our busy, practical, hardworking travelers and help them take care of their business or leisure travel needs. We provide the best hotel rooms, warmest hotel atmosphere and most courteous service in our market segment at every hotel, every night.

  • Fastest growing limited-service hotels in the North America
  • Operate and provide franchise services with over 65,000 rooms in over 700 properties
  • Locations in 46 states plus Canada and Mexico under the names La Quinta Inns and La Quinta Inns & Suites
  • Based out of Dallas, Texas, over 9,000 employees nationwide work on the Bright Side

Our Goal, it's easy
We want for every guest to wake up on the bright side while staying at our hotel. We offer clean and comfortable guest rooms with a dose of advertising humor to help our guest feel optimistic and happy no matter what the day holds. A great portion of this comes directly from our employees attitudes. And as if that wasn’t enough, we offer our guest free Bright Side™ breakfast, free hi-speed Internet while they stay with us and comfy beds. Many of our properties include pools and well equipped work-out facilities.

What sets us apart?
Every team member plays a vital role in the success of our family and growth. We are not a conglomerate of hotels brands that make decision on panel of “experts”. We make an effort to know all our employees and help them grow through our training program. While we may be one of the largest owner-operators of hotels in North America, we are a family first.

  • Take care of our employees
  • Take care of our guests
  • Keep the hotels spotlessly clean and well maintained
