Our family had to take an out of state trip due to the passing of my grandmother. In this difficult situation, staying at the La Quinta hotel in Santa Fe only made things worse.
I don't even know where to begin, as this alleged hotel.
After a long flight I was looking forward to a hot shower, only to find that the bathroom tub was completely clogged. I tried my best to scoop out whatever was clogging it, but no success. In essence I was forced to take a bath and shower at the same time as the water was rising to my calves.
Unfortunately for my other relatives needing to shower, they also had the same experience except with my used showerwater thanks to the clog. Management was called, and they did absolutely nothing.
There were also what appeared to be several "mysterious" hairs by the toilet, so its obvious the maids dont do any sweeping or mopping.
Good thing I brought my own toiletries because I guess the hotel expected the guests in my room to somehow equally divide a bar of soap into 4 pieces.
The filthy carpet in the room left my feet black. I would have been safer walking around barefoot on the streets of Santa Fe, and putting my shoes on when I got into the room.
TINY BEDS - So I guess their definition of a standard queen size bed is actually a full/twin bed. Since there were 4 guests sharing 2 beds, it wasn't comfortable. I felt like I was goldilocks visiting the three bears.
DISGUSTING BREAKFAST - Their "free breakfast" menu consisted of:
- hard-boiled eggs
- a "Do-It-Yourself" waffle maker (looked like it came out of a toxic waste dump)
- stale muffins and stale cereal
- un-refrigerated room temperature milk in a jug - (god knows how long that was sitting out)
- watered-down orange juice
A security guard in the lobby sits by the food I guess to scare off anyone that wants extra. This "free breakfast" was so bad, the homeless would probably give it back. But since I was hungry and had no time to stop somewhere I forced myself to eat it. I simply just imagined that I was a contestant on Fear Factor.
So far if none of this is bad enough, I suggest avoiding their "free breakfast". It'll save you a trip to the hospital and your stomach will thank you for it.
RUDE STAFF - The staff was incredibly rude! I had asked the guy with the cowboy accent that works at the front if I could get some antibacterial soap. He completely ignored me and when I asked him again he just shook his head. Then when I was checking out, all he did was cough all over the place, and I overheard him telling another co-worker that he had the flu. Why come to work and spread your germs to guests?!?!
BURGLARIZED CARS - And to top it all off as we were in the parking lot putting our luggage into the car, the guests in the next room were filing a police report because their car was broken into. Windows smashed, stereo and other belongings robbed.
STAY AWAY FROM THIS HOTEL - I highly do not recommend staying here. You could probaly get a more decent experience at a jail cell or salvation army shelter.
Too bad I didnt take photos because if I had known they could be submitted with a review, I would prove that seeing is believing.
