This is a suitable lodging option situated north of downtown Houma near Southland Mall. It is located on a quiet side street midway between two major arterials – Main Street (a.k.a. LA-24) to the east and Martin Luther King Blvd. (a.k.a. Rte. 3040) to the west. Unless you’re familiar with the area, make sure you have good driving directions to the hotel because Synergy Center Blvd. can be difficult to find otherwise. It would be helpful if the hotel had signage posted on the main thoroughfares indicating where guests/visitors should turn onto the street that the hotel is located on. Overall, the hotel’s appearance, both in and out, is similar to that of other hotels in the La Quinta Inn & Suites chain as well as that of some of its competitors. However, this particular hotel appeared to be well-maintained and seemed to be of recent construction or, if not new, had undergone a major renovation not long ago. We had a room with "King" bed on the 2nd floor overlooking the parking lot. The room was quite large and adequately furnished in typical motel décor but with the addition of both a seating area and desk suitable for business travelers needing to use their computers or take care of paperwork. The bathrooms are not very big but are suitably equipped and clean. An issue for some people may be the low-level, ambient hum extant in the room at times from the HVAC system within the room which could make sleeping troublesome for light sleepers or people travelling from other time zones. But, of course, this issue is not unique to the La Quinta Inn & Suites and will apply to many other hotels. The services proffered and rendered are typical for this type and level of hotel. The positives are that the rooms are clean and the staff is friendly and helpful. The breakfast fare involves a reasonable selection of hot & cold items which are best-described as simple, palatable, decent and relatively better than the breakfast items found at certain other hotel chains. Though there is no dining facility for lunch or dinner within the hotel, there are numerous dining options nearby and several can be reached by simply walking to them. Aside from a stand of trees behind the hotel and small forest bordering the eastside of the hotel property, there is nothing really scenic about the surrounding neighborhood which is comprised mainly of retail stores, shopping centers, strip malls, fast food outlets, restaurants, hotels/motels and mall interspersed with residential tracts and other non-commercial activities. Be advised that the rooms on the hotel's front side face the street and hotel parking lot while those on the backside face the woods which means there are no “rooms with a view.” One final positive factor to consider is the room tariff charged by this hotel. Comparatively-speaking, their rates appear to be lower than those of their competitors for what is essentially the same level of quality and lodging experience. Though I had a corporate (discounted) rate for my stay, a review of the hotel's regular rates using either La Quinta’s own website or other online hotel-booking websites shows their rates to generally be less than that of several other hotels and motels in the area. In conclusion I do recommend this La Quinta Inn & Suites hotel in Houma. I think it proffers better quality and facilities than some of the other hotels and motels in the area and it appears to be fairly-priced, well-kept and clean – the latter aspect being an important attribute relative to some of the other lodging chains in their peer group.
