La Quinta Inn Richmond South

Reviewed 31 July 2014

All hotel features fine but the bed. Staff was friendly, hotel was clean, however it was a terrible mattress. The covers must have been old and shrunk because only sat on top of mattress. Any movement at all and your sleeping directly on the mattress. My traveling companion had a similar experience.

general updating is needed, carpets are dirty, no printer available to print boarding pass, breakfast was good, local McDonald's is open 24-7. (drive thru) Parking is limited by the amount of trucks. I would not recommend this Hotel for familes.

we have stayed at la quinta a few times. once a few years back in St Augustine, Fl. and we were pleased with the room, rate staff and so on.
This year we stayed at a La Quinta in Florence, SC and on the way back in Richmond, Va. Both locations were a huge disappointment from our St Augustine experience. Perhaps it is because a few years have passed, or perhaps ownership changed?
This trip both hotels were not that clean, although the sheets are white (which I appreciate) and they were certainly clean. The Richmond location had comfortable beds unlike the Florence location. The rug in Richmond was old and nasty and one wants to make sure they keep shoes or slippers on. Both locations had pleasant staff which is a plus. We had noise problems at both locations, in Florence we were near the laundry room and people were talking in the wee hours
of the morning for some time, at the Richmond location people were outside in the parking lot talking at strange hours and woke us up. We have a dog so that is the primary and actually only reason for staying at La Quinta and they don't charge extra...although next trip I will book another hotel as for me it really isn't any bargain if we are unhappy with the place we are staying and paying the pet fee elsewhere where we will have a good night sleep it is worth it.

Staff was friendly and the rooms were clean, A few rough edges but this is an older building. Breakfast was plentiful and well attended by staff. Our King Suite was very clean and the bed was VERY comfortable. Great nights sleep. Only 10 seconds from I 95 with gas and food right there. Easy off and on. Will definitely use the one again.

OLD, OLD OLD. Towels are like sandpaper. BIG STAIN in sunk, OLD hard, mattress, OLD carpet. Reception clerk acted like he was shellshocked. After talking to HQ, I was upgraded to a suite, which was hardley an improvement. At least one of the towels was a shade of white and not worn.
