I have my reservations made with La Quinta for three nights. Did not make them directly with the hotel. La Quinta (direct) room rates were higher and they had, on their website at least, a pre-payment required, no refund/no cancellation policy posted (that may have changed by now; I have not checked recently). Anyhow, made my reservation via Booking.com
If you go thru Wyndham Rewards (free to join), you can book a cancellable reservation (24 hours in advance) without pre-payment (or save a few bucks by paying now, but not worth the risk IMO). My rate for October is under $120/night including tax with AARP discount. Since LQ is part of Wyndham, the rewards program has more ability to fix problems than third-party sites.
I'm not affiliated with LQ or Wyndham; I've just had good luck with their program.
