When we first arrived the room size
was nice but it was all downhill from there. The location was within walking distance to Mi Tierra and the mercado but after night the walk is questionable. When it came time for breakfast the food selection was shoddy. The fruit selection killed my appetite however due to the collection of fruit flies around the breakfast bar.
The first night in bed was a little uncomfortable. My wife complained about feeling something crawling on her. We didn't see anything so we let it go. The last night (we stayed for two nights) came more of the same. Around 10:30 that morning my wife went to dry her hair and picked up the hairdryer. When she did an adult bed bug crawled out from behind the dryer. We went to the bed area and immediately found another adult bed bug crawling across the head board of the bed our two daughters slept in. We also found additional signs behind the end table and immediately called the front desk. They sent the head of housekeeping to our room who seemed surprised but immediately confirmed our assessment. She had mentioned that they had recent training on bed bugs. When we left the guy at the front desk gave my wife attitude and cut our bill in half although with the mess we went through even that was a rip off. We will NOT be staying in another La Quinta. The chain just has too inconsistent of a record with regard to their individual hotels... some are motel dumps that open to the outside while a rare few are okay. This one seemed okay at first glance but ended up being a disaster... a bed bug haven. I find it hard to believe that we hit the bed bug lottery and this is a rare occurrence. Stay at your own risk!!! If you encounter the same issue you too could end up leaving all of your luggage in your garage, washing all of your clothes on extreme heat hoping to kill any eggs/larvae that may have hitched a ride home, and trying to find a way to fummugate your luggage so that you end up killing any other bugs that hitched a ride home. That for us will be on top of us checking our own bodies looking for bites and any associated doctor bills and side effects that may come up as a result. Stay at your own risk!!! What a disaster this place was.
