We like La Quinta. But our experience at this property was less than satisfactory. The first room we were given was a disaster - it had not been serviced, with towels on the bathroom floor, waste baskets overflowing, and beds unmade. The second room was only marginally better - the bulbs in both bedside lamps were out; the TV did... More

I have stayed at this hotel several years for a dog show weekend. It is clean, reasonably priced, offers a good breakfast and is fairly close to spacious grassy areas for dog walking. I've always been able to get first floor rooms and the staff is friendly.

I stayed here 4-5 years ago and said I would never come back. I come to the area at least twice a year for dog shows and it's very convenient so I checked reviews for this time and when I saw some good reviews we decided to give them another chance. I was very pleasantly surprised. The hotel was clean,... More

I was taking my family on a trip to Chicago. This hotel was around 45 minutes or less to the Museum of Science and Industry. We used to stay north of Chicago, but with the crazy traffic, tolls, etc. will now be staying here from now on. There was a nice mall and a lot of restaurants really close by... More

Where do I begin? I have worked as a manager for hotels for years (still do), and I can honestly tell you this was the worst experience I've had at a hotel!! The hotel smells TERRIBLE and our room was filthy (dozens of pubic hairs on the bathroom floor, hair and food particles in the "clean" bedding, floors that hadn't... More

We always tend to stay in La Quinta's since they are priced well and have never had any issues. The Merrillville, IN location was great! Friendly staff, clean room and a good breakfast! It's also located close to the mall and many selections of restaurants. I know that if I'm ever in the area again and need a place to... More

What a great stay and mini vacation with my daughter and grandson. The staff was amazingly accommodating and helpful. I felt safe and secure during the entire stay. We choose to stay another night; even though my daughter only lived 9 miles away. The food and water park was a great way to feel like you were on a vacation... More

Staff very friendly and knowledgeable about the area and how to navigate the roads to from airport etc. The property has been updated. Room and bathroom clean and quiet, which is always a plus and I was there on the weekend. I would stay again.

Upon check-in we were given a dirty room with dirty bed sheets, dirty towels on the bathroom floor. 2nd room we were given wasn't better at all: beds were made, however not enough towels in the bathroom, dirty floor with crumbs all over the place, dirt on top of microwave and other appliances plus terrible odor throughout the whole building...

I had written an exhaustive breakdown of my short visit (checked in, took a shower, starts to unpack and checked out instead), but there really is no point. This La Quinta is the definition of basic. No elevator, paper thin towels, dated interior and decor. My advice: if you have an extra $20 a night to spend, stay elsewhere.
