I'm in my room at the La Quinta South as I write. It's interesting how people can have such different experiences of the same place. I cannot be happier. I am in town to see my mother who is very ill, and did not make hotel arrangements before I arrived knowing that there are many hotels in the area. Driving down the expressway, I saw a billboard advertising a $49 rate for this hotel and decided to give it a try. My actual rate is $51 a night for one person in a room with two double beds.
The room is a nice size and really quite attractive with off-white stuccoed walls, crown moldings, a desk with two chairs and attractive prints and lighting fixtures. It's bright, pleasant, looks recently painted and the tile in the bathroom looks pretty new as well. There is a small closet with double doors in the bedroom and a full length mirror on the wall in addition to the large mirror in the sink area. I like the fact that your clothes aren't hanging in plain sight. There is also a real stand-up ironing board and iron in the closet.
The room is clean, clean clean!! Even the corners of the bedroom, bath and sink area are thoroughly clean - no built-up grime anywhere. The shower has great water pressure and is easy to adjust. There is a black-out curtain on the window (which opens) as well as sheers and draperies. The lighting is great -bright enough to work or read by and all the lamps work (something you can't count on with inexpensive accomodations) and isn't harsh at all. The beds are not fabulous, but much better than many slabs of concrete in other hotels that pass for beds. The pillows are not great, but I brought my own because I've learned to expect that. The internet connects easily and works fine.
The hotel is right up against the highway and I expected a noise problem, but as soon as you close the door quiet reigns. The only disappointment was that there was no fridge or microwave in my room - pretty standard for most budget hotels in my experience.
But the thing that I am most pleased about (besides price and cleanliness) is the wonderful service - I'm really amazed. Ten minutes after I went to my room the phone rang. It was the front desk asking if everything was satisfactory!! I told her that I was very pleased and mentioned how clean the room was, but then added that I was surprised not to find a fridge (I like doggy bags). The woman at the front desk told me that they only had fridges and microwaves in their suites, but she would leave a note for maintenance to bring me one if it was available. I thanked her, but didn't expect anything. Lo and behold - next morning they brought me a fridge. Can you see why I'm impressed?
I think this La Quinta in particular is having to overcome it's somewhat difficult to find location and proximity to the expressway, and they are really making an effort. This is far and away the best budget hotel experience I've ever had.
