“Sketchy location. Clean, comfy rooms.”
Reviewed 30 July 2013

We chose this La Quinta due to a) its location and b) it being a La Quinta. As a frequent LQ customer, I don't feel this property is quite up to standards. The neighborhood is a bit run-down and the parking lot on the back side of the property does not inspire much confidence. Additionally, the overall look of the property from the outside is quite rough.

However, on the other hand, the interior of the room was very clean and perfectly acceptable. Beds were soft and comfy and everything worked exactly as it should.

Overall, the outside & location of the property isn't quite up to typical LQ standards. But the inside is just fine and a great value for the money. In addition, it IS right off of I-40 and there are numerous dining & shopping options within a very short drive.

If you like flies and mosquitoes in your room, ants outside eating dropped food, dirt and grime and rude front desk then this is the one star hotel for you! The front desk never mentioned the pool was broken nor anything about a discount with the Denny's in the lot! The cleaning staff was super nice but the place was dirty outside and dingy and run down just like the surrounding area. The breakfast while usual stuff only had two sitting tables and five chairs between the two tables. The Internet is spotty and they had me call the 800 number three times. The floors above us cracked and creaked and popped like scary Rice Krispies! At this level, I expect a little more.

Room Tip: Go elsewhere like one exit up near to museums and nice restaurants. Not worth it!

First, be aware they do not have an elevator. Is not a big deal but if you can't climb stairs - it becomes important. Our 10yr old liked the pool but said it wasn't very clean. The beds were nice enough and everything seemed clean. Our A/C unit didn't work well but the room was cool enough. Overall our was fine. Nothing great.

Our group of 5 stayed at this hotel in a family suite which included a separate "parents' bedroom and 2 double beds in the larger room all of which had triple sheeted beds. The suite was large, clean and included a good sized bathroom, 2 TVs, 2 air conditioners, pretty good Wifi, a fridge and microwave. There was a small closet but 2 dressers with 6 drawers each. This would be a great place to stay for many days. The pool was refreshing, especially in the great heat. The checkin and checkout were easy and the staff pleasant. The breakfast was good, the usual continental with waffles, and more than enough tables and chairs. Additionally breakfast could be eaten outside as well.

We enjoyed dinner at the Denny's right next door and were given the hotel's 10% discount. This would be a great place to base a few days of activity out of.

We're sorry that we didn't stay longer to enjoy the amenities more and would certainly return.
