“They have PARKING!”
Reviewed 22 June 2012

We were moving from California to Texas and this was the ONLY hotel we stayed in that we could pull our 26' truck with a tow dolly into the parking area with no difficulty at all. The facility needs updating but for the price it is OK. They need to repair some out buildings and eliminate some issues with bird poop. There is also an issue with the portal that separates the smoking and non-smoking areas. It reeks of smoke. The "accessible" rooms are not really accessible if you are in a wheelchair but their management says they are working on that. Reception was friendly and courteous and the breakfast was heavily Hispanic. I loved the memory foam topped bed. La Quinta is usually a pretty good choice for a lower cost stay in a "nice" room especially if you are driving an RV or truck.

Room Tip: We chose an "accessible" room close to parking that was easy to unload our bags into.

This place is a dump its rooms are dark and smell of mold. The shampoo was half used, i consider that a sanitary issue. The carpet is filthy and the beds are broken down. The shower looks as though grease was wiped all over iy and never washed off. The bottom of the tub is the same condition, there is a booger on the wall and what appears to be feces. Spots on the door. DO NOT STAY HERE!!!!!!

LaQuinta, Sweetwater, TX
Heed my warning and DO NOT stay here if you want a clean hotel and a decent nights' sleep! You won't get that there! This place is not what it seems. Online the pictures appear nice and somewhat like it is a newer hotel. It is NOT! We paid $95 plus taxes for what should have cost $29. at most! I certainly expected more for $100 bucks a nite!
We stayed here because the very nice, new Best Western next door was fully booked during the week and I called 2 days earlier. No one wants to stay at this LaQuinta.
Our room at this LaQuinta was old, dank, dusty, mold in shower, ratty carpet, etc. Even though it was suppose to be non smoking, we smelled smoke all night and had to stuff a towel under the door to hold the smell down.
The toilet was so small and low to the ground and wobbled. The sink was so low, it hit somewhere right above the knees and the tub was moldy with one of those nasty 'stuck in the bottom of the tub rubber mats'. This bathroom was out of a time warp. We skipped showering that night because we were NOT stepping foot in that tub.
They have several buildings disconnected from the main front entrance and that is where they put us. We think this building use to be something else and they converted it..... Very strange set up. Our building was at the back of the property and the location was a little scary. We worried about the safety of our car in the lot. The breakfast was not a consideration. We couldn't wait to get out of there! Beware-You have been warned!

This place is old. You can see out front they have covered up an old sign indicating it was a rental car location, with a blank white sign (but you can still see the old remnants of what it used to be). Don't know what, besides a rental car place, what this was before, but it is NOT a new LQ. Don't be decieved by the fancy pictures on the website. The front desk lady would not let us walk through the hotel to get to our room, instead she said it was easier to drive there and park by the door. (Room doors at the hotel are interior; but she preferred we enter through the exit door...) This hotel is shaped like a sideways L. While looking for the ICE machine, half way down the L hallway was a trap door that segregated the smoking section from the non-smoking section. Of course I didn't know that until I opened the door. At that point the smoke had entered the non-smoking part of the hallway and fumigated the non-smoking hallway. Abandoned the search for ice and returned to the room, stinking of smoke. Old carpet, yucky tub (I didn't bathe). It's no wonder the Best Western next door (NEW--have stayed there & is nice), parking lot was packed, while there were 3 cars in the LQ lot. The only reason I didn't stay at the BW was because it was booked...on a Wednesday night! The LQ thinks they are nicer than they are. For ex. they requested my car year/model before checking in; they give you coupons to show at breakfast (like people are beating down the door at this place for the "free" breakfast). Breakfast was a non-factor as after the yuck experienced the night before, I fasted. I did visit the breakfast area. It was your standard, instant sausage, eggs, pancakes, french toast, kid cereals (meaning those coated w/sugar), coffee, juice, dead bagels, not so appetizing looking pastries. Had to ask for ice, what is it with these people & ice. Apparently there is a shortage of it at the LQ.

We arrived in Sweetwater as evening approached, and the La Quinta was the only hotel with space (something to do with nearby casinos, I think). Access to the hotel is a bit strange; if you're headed westbound on I-20 the onramp to the freeway is very difficult to access. The breakfast buffet was sparse and the food quality was mediocre. I was a bit put off by the motorcycle parked at the front door partially blocking access (not a good first impression!). After all that, though the place is clean and the staff is friendly and helpful.

We had a good stay at this hotel. The room was clean and the front office staff were quite helpful. Quiet Night's Sleep We would return here without a second thought

Room Tip: There is a back set of units well away from the I-20. Quiet nights sleep

Of the 4 or 5 motels visible from the highway we picked La Quinta for a change as we had never stayed at one before and they always looked to be so clean and neat. Wrong. Smelly hallways, lots of grime in the public areas and the pool was so murky the bottom was not visible even at the three foot depth. However the room was OK so for a night on the road it sufficed.
