The neighborhood is close to the freeway and there can be difficulties with construction and street people, but all big cities can struggle with both of these. My room was clean the hotel lobby tidy and bright. A few minor glitches that can happen anywhere...the room next door had a very loud heater unit which vibrated my adjoining wall. But I finally settled to sleep. Looking forward to a great La Quinta breakfast I was up and ready early but the breakfast meat was already gone and the coffee...well...so weak I could see the bottom of my cup. Would I stay there again you ask, you betcha. Everyone has a tough morning once in a while.
