I spent a business/pleasure week in Harlingen, visiting a relative during his off hours and, working from my hotel room while he was at work. I was wondering whether I had made a good choice since LaQuinta's advance-purchase AARP rate was about the lowest in the area, and experience shows you sometimes "get what you pay for." I was quite pleasantly surprised.
The property is clean and well-maintained. While I was there a contractor spent a few days cleaning the heating/AC units in each room. This is a good sign of preventive maintenance and might address another reviewer's comment about a musty smell in the room. I've experienced that smell in other budget hotels when the AC unit was not well maintained, but my room had no smells even before the AC maintenance.
The room was clean and spacious--larger than in some hotels--and the Wifi worked well. The table and chair were adequately large and comfortable to make a good workspace. My only two complaints are that the TV's picture was so dark that evening scenes couldn't be seen. Also, the shower drain was slow. I didn't even mention these to the hotel, as neither was a big enough deal to complain about.
This hotel is fairly large. I had a second-floor outer room (not overlooking the swimming pool) on the back side, away from traffic noise. Since the neighboring property (a school) was some distance away, it was fairly quiet, and there was little disturbance. The screened window opened.
As others have mentioned, the breakfast is ample and varied, and the staff are friendly. I saw no evidence of bugs, although January/February usually is not bug season anyway.
