I was in Las Vegas on a photo shoot for several days and made this La Quinta my home away from home for the stay, it worked great for me. I'm an elite member of La Quinta but have been straying the last year or two, mainly because the La Quinta chain has been growing so quickly that I didn't think the quality of a lot of their remodeled locations came close to what I expected from their new locations. This had to be a new property because it was super nice and seemed new and crisp. The usual problem with doors slamming reared its ugly head here, unfortunately. The door frames seemed to be "loose" and they weren't grout-filled (sorry, I'm a licensed architect and I expect some of the same things in hotels that I stay in that we put in buildings for others) which would have helped the CHING/CLICK/BANG of the door latches slapping into place every time someone let their door SLAM behind them; which unfortunately, it seems like 99% of people do.
But, other than the door slamming, which isn't that isn't uncommon, unfortunately, I thought this was a great hotel. The location was great for me and the price couldn't be beat, I think it was about $80 a night. My bed was the perfect combo of hard and soft at the same time. One odd thing was that the heating/AC unit in my room wouldn't quit turning on in the evening! I had it set at 78 which was the highest it would go, but then every night like clockwork, it would start turning on for 10-15 minutes at a time, pouring out ice cold air even though I didn't want ice cold air pouring out! I even set it so it was turned off so the wall control said "off", but it still kept turning on. Weird.
The breakfast was good with hardboiled eggs for the protein (no scrambled eggs/sausage/bacon like most La Quintas), but they did have "biscuits and gravy" for those folks who enjoy that. I'm not a fan of that so I didn't try it, but they also had the usual oatmeal packets (not brand name, like some other chains offer; or better yet, real oatmeal not in packets), all sorts of juices and breads and waffles and yogurt and coffee and tea, etc. The hard boiled eggs were the saving grace for me here, otherwise I would have knocked the review down a notch. I just can't personally start the day by stuffing my head full of carbs and get anything done after that. They used ceramic plates and cups, bowls, etc. which was nice, but the bowls were almost the same size as the plates and weren't much deeper, so to mix up two packets of oatmeal in a room full of people standing around watching, waiting, etc.. it wasn't the best system that I've seen. I'd much prefer a smaller, deeper bowl; it would be much easier to use. But, that's an odd thing to complain about when everything else was so good.
I didn't use the outdoor pool even though it was in the low-80's, which apparently was above normal for the city. The pool was busy at times and I could hear lots of young people in there, and then I'd look out in a half hour and it would be totally empty. I'd want to hit it on an empty time, it wasn't super big, but it looked pretty nice and inviting and as clean as everything else was. The super friendly housekeepers were even vacuuming the hallways! Go figure, I didn't think anyone did that anymore. A lot of hotels I stay at are really nice but they never have the tell tale marks of the hallways being vacuumed; I know they do it here because I saw it every day I was there. I would stay here again for sure, it was a great value and my room was perfect for me. Other than the loud doors and door frames, the only small thing that didn't work was the tv remote. But, I could have gone downstairs to get a new battery (it had a phillips screw in it otherwise I would have put in a battery for them). I thought it was a super nice hotel and would recommend it to others.
