As soon as I saw the hotel, it was clear that it is a former Hampton Inn. I proceeded with trepidation, as I am not a fan of Hampton Inns. As soon as I walked into the lobby, I noticed the air was warm and damp. Thoughts of dread and fear of a sleepless night entered my mind. I asked the desk clerk if the a/c was broken and she said something to the effect that it sure felt like that judging by the lobby but that she was pretty sure the rooms would be okay. I decided to take a gamble and check in. I immediately cranked the a/c when I got in the room and was quickly assured that the desk clerk was correct. I looked around the room and was surprised to see that the room had not likely been renovated from its Hampton Inn days. The décor was dark and not reflective of today's hotel room style, never mind the typical La Quinta colors and décor. The carpeting in the elevators and halls are in desperate need of replacement. Breakfast was okay. There were bacon and what looked like fake sunny-side up eggs as well as the usual cereals and pastries. I had some bacon and juice, so I cannot comment on the quality or taste of the food. Overall, I would stay in the hotel again. I slept like a baby due to the fully functioning a/c, that operated perfectly and had no governor or cap on the temperature. The bed was very comfortable, which added to my peaceful slumber.
