It has finally happened, I have stayed in a substandard La Quinta. I have stayed in dozens of La Quintas over several years and this is the first one that gets thumbs down.
When we entered our room I noticed a smell and after looking around found several stains where dogs had wet. When my wife spoke to the desk clerk she said there was a problem with people leaving their dogs alone for several hours and this is what happens but they plan on putting new carpets in the rooms in the future. Now we know how it happened and a possible fix in the future but nothing to help us with I have never found a La Quinta room in this condition and they have dogs staying in rooms.
The dog walk is on a side of a steep bank in a dark place where I wouldn't dare let my wife go after dark.
I also noticed there was no coffee or tissues in the room. Checking with the front desk they gave us coffee but said they were out of tissues.
The only pool was outdoors and it was full of garbage. I would rather swim in a frog pond.
The beds aren't too bad but not even close to those in other La Quints. I was going to stay in a La Quinta tomorrow night but I may go to the Drury Inn, I have never been disappointed with them.
Two things on the plus side is that serve breakfast at 5am so we can get an early start and the wifi was fast and worked well.
It is too bad that a few pet owner who are slobs and give us all a bad name but other motels have found ways of dealing with them.
