“Served Our Needs”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 7, 2013

This is an original La Quinta Inn that has been well maintained over the half century or so that it has been there. Our room was clean and the things that matter to us, bed, linens, TV, wifi, a/c, bathroom and security were all adequate. The front desk employees were friendly and helpful. We would not hesitate to stay here again.

This is absolutely the worst LaQuinta ever! The only good thing I can say about the hotel is that the beds were decent and the tv was nice. . It it old, run down and in a very suspect part of town. The mirrors in the bathroom have the silvering coming off, the fiberglass tub is stained, the towels are thin and the rooms very small. The clientele is mostly sketchy. The first night we didn't sleep at all because of car alarms going off, people yelling, pounding on doors and partying. The second night was only slightly better. If the staff had been as diligent about replenishing the breakfast bar as they were in picking it up promptly at 10:00, I might give it an okay review. We were afraid our car would be vandalized, as well. Rest assured the CEO of LaQuinta wouldn't stay here or allow anyone in his family to stay here. I can't believe anyone would say the rooms in this hotel are modern! Never again!!

Room Tip: The best advice I can give is to choose another hotel. IF I ever stay at another LaQuinta, I will de...

After combing through reviews and prices of different LaQuinta inns and other hotels we booked & stayed here for two nights and was surprised. We had stayed at a La quinta in Dallas and the carpet was sticky and wet? Luckily not here. Everything seemed clean and dry. I was a little concerned that the area was going to be sketchy, but it really didn't seem to be. The area is by a lot of boarded up buildings but hey it's by Industrial rd. But it's right by two highways so your not that far from anywhere, You just hop on which highway you need. The breakfast is just what you expect and the single coffee maker in your room is actually pretty good. I like la Quinta inn because we have a large dog and they don't charge extra for you pet or size of. Also here they have more modern rooms and flat screens that we can plug our portable dvd player into is great! Pool was clean no complaints will stay here again!

Had to stay here a week while my husband and pups were visiting because my corporate housing didn't allow pets. Best thing about La Quinta - no charge for pets. Our room was clean and comfortable. The only thing we missed was having a fridge and microwave in our room. We don't know why only a couple rooms had them, but since they were booked, there wasn't anything we could do. The front desk & the housekeeping staff was outstanding. We had trouble with our key cards a few times & they immediately took care of it. If the situation ever comes up again or if I have friends that want to bring their pets to visit Austin, I will happily recommend this location.

Room Tip: Ask to see the room before checking in. We were originally given a room with 2 double beds, only to...

hotel dated, okay for the rate. needs the outside clean and painted. Inside was surprising clean toilet made noise when u flush it. breakfast not that great go out eat instead. some outside light were out. I stayed on the back side of the hotel right next to the street but had no real problem was worry a little. okay for short stays and budget minded. Would probably stay in a nicer one next time.

Room Tip: close to I-35 and 71 freeways.

We were a bit dismayed when we stayed here for a quick overnight trip through town. The location is pretty sketchy, the highway noise is cacophonic, the clientele questionable and the back side of the hotel has almost no outdoor lighting. The room was clean and nicely decorated but we left our car near the front of the hotel overnight since it was so dark near our room location we were afraid it might get broken into. I've stayed at some very nice LaQuintas before. I would not stay at this one again.
