I had many excellent stays at this hotel. I was quite surprised to have my coworker frantically knock on my door to come and see what was on her bathroom floor--a dead baby mouse. When reported to the front desk, the lady was prompt in disposing of it and moving my coworker to another room (*next door to mine). About 10pm, I got a phone call as she had found mouse droppings in the BED of the new room! I immediately moved her to my room. The next morning she went to the front desk to speak with the manager so we wouldn't be charged. The female at the desk told her the manager was on vacation and she couldn't do anything for us. When I went to the front desk, I recognized her--she was the manager's wife! I politely explained that we would NOT be paying for a room with an 'uninvited guest' and that they definitely must have a problem with rodents since there were two rooms with evidence, one with a dead baby mouse. She promptly took care of the billing (that she previously had no authority to fix). The owner called me within a few days after I wrote LaQuinta.com. He explained that the mouse had gotten in the back door of the hotel and made his way to the room where he died. I advised that this was highly unlikely, and due to his small size, he probably had siblings and other mice that were not discovered. He argued that they had put poison down and that this was the end of it. He went onto to say that he had always treated me 'special' with free upgrades and bottled water. I reminded him that due to my Elite member status, this is an automatic perk per their website. Once my manager heard the story, this LaQuinta became permanently off limits to our company. We will not stay there again (which is a shame--I used to stay there at least 3-4 times/month).
