I have stayed at La Quinta's for years and always search them out first. This is the first one that I was slightly disappointed in. I've read some of the other reviews and am wondering if maybe some of the rooms or floors have not been updated?????
We stayed at this particular La Quinta as it was convenient for us to catch the bus for the Bronco game 10/28/12. Upon checking in, we were told of course about the complimentary breakfast being available the next morning until 10AM (we found out the next morning at 9:30 when we went down, that it was only until 9AM. I didn't know the weekdays were differnt times than the weekends, but then again, the girl at the counter should have been more knowledgeable in informing us as well.
The room was extremely dark and dingy looking. The vanity in the bathroom looked like a hammer had been taken to it with all the chips and dents in it. There were stains on the carpeting and on the bed clothing.
We heard what sounded like water running down inside the walls all night. The walls at this place were extremely thin and we had hard time getting to sleep. When we finally did get to sleep, we were woken very early in the morning to what sounded like a jackhammer in the room above us. We determined this was a vacuum cleaner.
Just not up to par LaQuinta. I never knew you had places like this that were so poorly maintained.
Like I said, maybe we were on a floor that had been updated yet?
