It was apparent that a lot of attention to detail is paid to this hotel property by the staff. I was amazed! Everybody was always very busy and some type of maintenance and upkeep was always happening. It appears that the company DOES care about the condition and cleanliness of this hotel at all times.
My wife chose this hotel (because she had heard a lot of good things about La Quinta). I was at the time a little like 'meh... they're all the same'. As usual, my wife was right. I have travelled and stayed at a LOT of hotels in my life.
Anyway, as a business owner - I was really interested in staying here simply because of that episode of Undercover Boss (from 2010).... but did not expect to see the attention to detail and really busy activity the morning we checked out. Even the guy picking up trash around the property was insane in doing his job so well. The front desk girl, was perfect! I guess it was the maintenance manager was talking about doing some maintenance to the wooden trellis thing at the swimming pool to some contractors... again, I was like 'wow'. These people REALLY do care.
The desk, (CHAIR!!), room lighting and oh yeah, the remote digital thermostat!!! PERFECT! All of this was a BIG DEAL for me because we had a HOURS of work to do for court the next day. We worked all the way up until 12 noon check out time.
The replacement of the a/c controls with the digital control on the other side of the room - where it belonged! - was a fantastic idea! I never expected a routine hotel stay to be so 'just right' for us. La Quinta will definitely get our business again, and again!
Keep it up! We will be back!
