I stayed here overnight before going north. It is a large property with rooms in several individual buildings. The room itself was recently upgraded, and clean, though there are signs that management has been participating in the "deferred maintenance" plan. Many of the exterior surfaces are brick and need a good washing down, and cobwebs adorn the railings. Some of the carpet edging along the walls is also pulling away. Better maintenance would have earned another star from me.
Another complaint is the poor WiFi: I could only get a weak signal despite being in building A (closest to the lobby) and when it did connect, I could only get 0.5 Mb/sec. When I notified the clerk about this, she said the hotel gets lots of complaints about it. Perhaps this should be a hint to management for them to do something about it? Especially since "high speed Internet" is specifically advertised as an amenity?
I will say that this is one of the few value-priced hotels whose TV gets HD channels; most in this price range will put a flat screen TV but not upgrade their TV service, and standard-definition channels look horrible on a high-definition TV.
Otherwise this hotel is perfectly acceptable. BUT....it is located in a neighborhood that sees a LOT of homeless people. Apparently the adjoining park along the river has a sizeable homeless population. They never bothered me, but then again I didn't walk through the neighborhood either. Like at many La Quinta properties, your room door opens directly to the outdoors, which combined with the neighborhood could be a concern for some. The property is fully gated except at the main entrance, so there is only one way in and one way out. I don't know if there is security wandering the grounds at night; I saw none during the day. Don't leave valuables in your car in plain sight, including your GPS, and if you can take them out of the car even better.
