“Stay far away!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 December 2004

From dirty rooms (think random hairs on the bathroom floor and mysterious stains on the bare sides of the box spring) to clueless service, this hotel is an embarassment. For $85 a night, it was an outrage.

The employees were so lackadaisical it was a wonder they were actually awake. The "restaurant" had a free breakfast -- when I asked if they had cereal, a worker said "Um, maybe. Sometimes we run out. I don't know."

Sure, this hotel is a few blocks from the downtown area, but for around the same price, you can stay in a better chain hotel just a few minutes away. And you won't be afraid to touch anything. It's a shame -- I enjoy supporting local, mom-and-pop businesses when I travel. But this mom and pop should be ashamed.

I have been staying here for several years but was so disappointed this time. The hotel room was horrible and the beds were badly stained. The restaurant that used to have great Mexican food was horrible. Our view out our window was of 7 old toilets and a junked car in a fenced yard of the hotel. Lovely. The owner's really need to put some money back in this place. The location is great and the staff is very friendly.

The plaza is by far the best hotel in Laredo Tx. With it's large room size and low nosie factor, plus the best view in the whole city and Rio Grande it's a place you just can't beat. For the price, cleanliness and good nosie inslation this place will make you forget your a stone's throw away from Mexico
