“Really Nice”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 October 2010

This hotel was really nice and a good deal for the price. We were really impressed with the service of the hotel. There was free wi-fi and free breakfast. It was easy to get to many attractions and about 10 minutes from the beach. Swimming pool was nice, but kind of small, and there was even a hot tub. Great hotel for the price.

This LaQuinta was not a bad experience at all-clean, good value I think. However, having stayed in many LaQuintas this one is not my favorite by far. I found the staff to be polite, but certainly not over friendly. At most LQ the staff is extra friendly and outgoing--here they were much more reserved and lacked the spark of pleasantness that I associate with LQ. Even the maids seemed sour, and unable to even smile. Perhaps they have reason to be that way, but it doesnt make a great impression. It was raining one day when I returned to the hotel, and the tiles outside the lobby were very slippery. I slipped, fell face forward full length, and it barely got a notice from the desk clerk. Just seems like a very cold and unhappy place.
Otherwise, no complaints-decent breakfast, clean enough, and the room was pleasant and comfortable.

Easy access to and from airport but airport noise was not a problem. Clean rooms. Needs a little maintenance work - cracked plaster - rusty shower rod. Breakfast not fancy and ends at 9 am but nice breakfast room that wasn't overcrowded. Missed the free USA Today La Quinta used to have. Fridge and Micro handy. Have paid 3X more for comparable room.

This motel was very nice and clean. The pool and pool area were awesome. Security was very good. No bothers with noise, even with the airport close by. My only downside was that the room we stayed in had full sized beds instead of queen. But for the price, a steal at $49, I wasn't complaining. Highly recommend this hotel!

As most things are.

Yes, this is an older facility and yes, the noise from the adjacent airport was a nuisance at times. We also got a very favorable rate on our seven-night stay. The hotel isn't really close to anything (besides the aforementioned airport). It also isn't terribly far from many things that we wanted to see. The spa was warm (almost too warm) and the pool was nicely heated. The continental breakfast was sufficient, a typical carb-heavy offering. Our room was more than satisfactory. We liked having the micro-fridge and microwave available. All in all, it was a positive experience.

I stayed in this hotel with my brother for 6 nights from Nov. 21-27 of 2009. It was the filthiest La Quinta that I had ever stayed in before. We usually stayed at another of their locations that was very nice and clean and well staffed. This hotel was filthy, supposedly under construction according to signs posted on typing paper on glass doors. The person working the desk in the morning had to also work the breakfast room and you could never get help at the desk without a wait. The internet service they use is so slow and if you can keep online you are lucky. I would never ever go there again or reccommend this hotel to anyone and you should be very careful if you are going to stay in any of the La Quintas in their chain. It seems they are starting to slip. I go there because I have their Visa Card, even though I haven't used my points yet. I will be using them on other things and cancelling my Visa card with them. The manager was on vacation and when I e-mailed the address given on their site for problems, I got an auto response that he was on vacation and to get with someone else. I saw no renovations going on the entire time I was there. When I got my bill I saw the charge as I knew it and then when I saw my credit card bill they had added another charge of $35.00 for what I don't have any idea. DO NOT STAY AT THIS HOTEL OR THIS CHAIN UNLESS YOU HAVE STAYED AT ONE OF THEIR LOCATIONS AND GO BACK TO THAT ONE BECAUSE YOU KNOW IT IS NOT FILTHY AND UNDERSTAFFED. YOU WILL BE BETTER OFF TO PAY A FEW DOLLARS MORE AND FIND A CLEAN, WELL MAINTAINED HOTEL WITH A MANAGER ON THE GROUNDS. PLEASE TELL YOUR FRIENDS AND SAVE THEM FROM THIS AWFUL EXPERIENCE. THANK YOU.

This property does not compare to the many new LaQuintas. It is older and shows it. The pool area is small but nice,the rooms are small and dated. The TV reception is poor and the tv's are old. The carpet looks new but not installed properly with wrinkles and poor finishing.
The bed is comfortable,though linens are iffy.
Thought it was strange that there was no coffee in the lobby and breakfast was skimpy.
