4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 May 2014

It was decent for the price range and convenient location. Check in Staff are at an Excellent level, very professional and helpful. The rooms are nice, new flat screen and able to hook up my computer. The Wifi took some work to get on to. The room did have a strong odor of baby powder but it was not a bad sent...just a strong sent. I would stay again.

If you are looking to have WI-FI do not stay here. They say they have it but it rarely worked during a 3 day stay. Besides the WI-FI issue the hotel overall was ok for its age. Close to the things we needed to get to but would check into staying at a different LaQuinta in the area if here again.

I'm a La Quinta Gold level client, so stay at a lot of La Quintas. This one is below average. The biggest positive is the price for the geographic location, which no doubt keeps the place filled. It is directly adjacent to the busy highway and very, very noisy if you are on the freeway side, so you want to ask for the other side. The free Internet is still not fully reliable in my experience. I found some aspects of the room nice (bed, desk, TV) and other aspects poorly maintained (bathroom - all fixtures). I'd give this hotel three stars if it were not for the Internet and highway noise.

Room Tip: Beg for a room that is not on the highway side of the hotel unless you love feeling like you are sle...

Very old - super close to freeway - needs a good coat of paint and upgrades - seems complacent with business since it's so busy - breakfast is all cold except make your own waffle - no live service on food - dining room very small - not enough chairs and tables for everyone...get what you pay for I guess?

Well breakfast was a bust
Just ok but there could have some fresh apples or bananas like other La Quinta's

Wifi was terrible (do not stay here if you need wifi for business)

Do not get a room next to Hooters (they take hotel parking spots and shady characters)

The surroundings looked dirty. Old washing machine by the elevator which was also dirty looking. Someone was using the machine at the time I walked by looking for the elevator. Wet clothes spilling out of the washer. Why is the washer located in the walkway, between vending machines and elevator? Why not have a designated washroom? Shocked by the unkempt feel of the surroundings. Made it feel depressing and unsafe. Lots of highway/vehicular noise. The pool looked dirty as well. I have stayed in a very plush La Quinta in St. Louis. I expected the same. I was supposed to stay here for 3 nights. Heard blood curdling scream in the middle of the night. Doors slamming. I couldn't sleep. Doors next door sounded like my door. It was so close. I barricaded my door with whatever I could. I left after that one night without an idea where I would sleep the next two nights. I just couldn't stay. Wifi also didn't work while I was there. Stepped in something very wet on the floor that turned my while socks almost black instantly. What was that liquid on the carpet?
