I'm pretty sure my bathroom wasn't cleaned for the three days I stayed as there was an item on the floor from the moment I checked in until I checked out. Walls are really thin and apparently this is the hotel where men go to argue with their wives over the phone. I heard every word of several conversations.

I booked two of my business travelers in this hotel last week. They just told me that the front desk gave one of them keys to an occupied room. The female occupant was in the shower when my client walked in. The occupant was very shaken up. What a frightening thing to happen! The least they could have done is... More

Maybe one shouldn't expect too much from a La Quinta Inn, but this is really a place to avoid. It's badly in need of refurbishment, worn and grubby, and the breakfast is very substandard. I was thankful I had only reserved one night, and glad to leave. Plus the shower didn't work properly. For $100 a night, one can do... More

All staff that I encountered were very friendly & polite. Miya at the front desk really stood out as she handled my reservation and assisting another guest that was having difficulty with his room. My room was clean and it was very quiet considering that my window faced busy University Avenue. The queen beds were comfortable and I didn't expect... More

My husband and I booked and prepaid for a two nights stay but then when we checked in they charged us again for the two nights. We had to go back down to the front desk to get those charges removed. Then the next day we were resting in the room when housekeeping started harassing us to check out; we... More

Clean room, comfy bed, I have no complaints. There was a mini fridge in my room, which I appreciated. I was surprised by a hot breakfast of scrambled eggs, potatoes and sausages and not just the usual La Quinta breakfast of waffles and bread. There was an exercise room and pool I did not use. The business center was handy... More

I have stayed at this property about 2 dozen times over the last few years. I find the location to be convenient to freeway access and close to the activities I enjoy in the area. It is a decent value during non-peak season. The property is very old but generally clean and adequately maintained. I considerate it to be a... More
