“average or just below average - a place to sleep but that's it.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 13, 2013

At first impression this hotel is a "flea bag", but as the days wore on the hotel experience was average or just below average. The first impression is poor. The rug on the second floor gives off an odor, and the air quality suffocates you in the hall. The service is average - if you ask for it, but nothing that makes you feel like a guest The Internet connection in the lobby is poor, 2 old computers and one didn't work for almost a week or more. Be careful of your car in the parking lot. I got up one morning; the police were in the parking lot and one guest was sweeping glass from his broken back window. He had items stolen from his car, so don't leave anything of value in sight and park as close to the entramce as possible. You risk your life if you attempt to cross the street for Walmart. Not a good value.

Consistency in a hotel chain is important. La Quinta gives my family that assurance. The first La Quinta we stayed in was in Virginia Beach, VA about five years ago. It had a wonderful indoor pool as well as an outdoor pool and we saw pets in the hallway. We did not own a pet at the time. I gave my wife a dog for Christmas last year (2012) and the minute we thought about how to have her travel with us, we remembered the beach experience.

The front desk service provider was attentive and courteous, but the accommodations were poor. The room smelled very very musty, although the room I reserved was advertised as "non-smoking", and it felt "unclean". I found hairs on the bed sheets (which I replaced with my own). Also, if the reserved room is on the 2nd floor, be aware - there is no elevator on site.

Stayed for 1 night while on a business trip to Baltimore. Located near an intersection right on a major highway, not much chance for peace and quiet. Accomodations were very modest but was clearly a you-get-what-you-pay-for situation. No complaints here. The rate was cheap, the breakfast was fine, and the staff was friendly.

Room Tip: Request a room facing away from the the highway.

We are a returns member a spaghetti and saucend stay almost exclusively at LaQuinta until now. Our room #204 had spilled spaghetti and sauce ground into the rug. The housekeeper thought that putting the desk chair over the newly spilled food would hide it from the next unsuspecting guest. It didn't. Absolutely disgusting. Couple that with the toilet handle broken and no chain in the tank to reattach it. So when I had to use the bathroom it entailed removing the top of the toilet tank to flush. No maintenance to fix it at 10pm when we found the problem.
This morning I brought the Asst Manager to the room to see the issues. She apologized and then tried to charge me full price for a room at another location in Maryland for tonight since this room was already booked for tonight and no other rooms were available to switch to. Absolutely abysmal response to renting out a room that should never have been rented at all with the glaring problems. How could the housekeeper and her supervisor sign off on this room for the next guest without even reporting the problems and fixing them before I arrived completely unaware until checking in? Obviously poor training on the housekeeping staff, poor oversight by the manager of the housekeepers and an Asst Manager thinking calling another location to book a rom at full price for me was doing me any favor or making the situation right. My advice is stay elsewhere. The staff all around at this location is abysmal.

Clean and neat. We were in 101. Great reception, helpful. Everything works. Easy parking. Really comfy beds. Ooooops, I do have a small complaint. Internet is not too stable. Kept getting switched from 2 to 4.

Breakfast fare was regular stuff. Thanks to all

Nice and tidy hotel. We really enjoyed our stay. The food was excellent and the room was good. We would definitely stay there again. the staff was friendly and attended to our needs. There are tons of places to walk your dog if you bring one.
