“First time at a La Quinta”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 22, 2013

Polite, efficient staff. Stayed at the back side of motel which was mostly quiet. Rooms on the north side face the iHOP restaurant which I'm guessing is a little noisier. Walls were thin enough to hear what was being spoken if someone walked by. Flat screen TV. The room needed some maintenance especially along the transitions to the bathroom. Funny, sprayed, artificial smell when you enter the room. Noisy hair dryer, iron, coffee maker provided. Shampoo and soap only. Tub felt like it had possibly been re-lined. Bathroom areas were clean.

Room Tip: Rooms in the back are the most isolated and also probably the most quiet.

We stayed at this motel for two nights and it was very clean and at an exceptional price. We would highly recommend this motel to everyone. It has easy access to Hwy 290/Hwy 71 and has restaurants within walking distance. The staff was very helpful and prompt.

I have stayed here before in one of the King rooms, which was alright. The room was clean but there were a few maintenance issues. There was a light out.
This time around stayed in a double bed room. The room was clean and roomy. Everything worked fine. The a/c could use some updating but still worked. Bathroom was clean and beds were nice. Check in was quick as I am a Rewards Member and check out was also a snap. I didn't have the free breakfast this time around.

Two different stay's in a week for the wife and I and both were great. Clean, quiet with great bedding and TV's. Toilet rooms clean and appointed nicely with coffe pots and coffe in lobby with continental breakfast. Rates kept low, so no fridge or micro waves. That is found at their suite address, down the street. Handy to freeway, but a quiet location with food next door, full menue I Hop & Burger King. Many restaurants nearby and Randalls/ Safeway and Target. Downtown and airport within manageable distance and bus route avaliable.

Pictures are often said to be decieving and the ones on La Quinta's website certainly are. This hotel is right next door to an all night I-HOP and is more like a nice motel vs a "Hotel". Room was as expected and no thrills as was the Continental breakfast. This hotel is good for it's very close proximity to I-35. Be careful if you book a La Quinta hotel in Austin as there are over 14 with 7 being right off the highway and very close to each other.

This hotel did not have external entrances and did not have an elevator, thus I had to go in the lobby,up the stairs to walk outside to my room. Bright spot was nice front desk staff who were very nice and attentive.

Room Tip: Try to not stay on the I-HOP side of the building as after bar drunks can get rowdy.

Ended up staying here through a "name your price" option and at first was a little leery, but ended up being pleasantly surprised. Though it couldn't be guaranteed with my type of reservation, I called the hotel and requested a non-smoking room which I got with no problem. Check in and out was very easy, and the desk clerk was pleasant. Room was very clean, good size and the bedding looked new and fresh. Got lots of channels on the TV as well. Only complaints were that the bathroom was very small and didn't have a fan so it was like a sauna after a shower, towels were small and thin, and the HVAC unit was right next to one of the double beds and blew directly on it. Pool looked decent but we didn't have time to use it. Very short drive to the airport, and a 24 hour IHOP right next door. Place is not fancy, but is very nice for what it is and we'd stay here again when traveling on a budget.
