The room was very clean, which was nice. However, we were appalled at all the waste generated in the breakfast room. There wasn't a single reusable item used: plastic cutlery, Styrofoam plates, bowls, and cups, all of it thrown away and none of it recycled. This amount of waste is not sustainable, especially if every LaQuinta and many hotel chains operate this way. How hard would it be to install a dishwasher and use real glasses, cutlery, and plates?
The staff were just average. The man working at the front desk couldn't give us a hotel recommendation, although he asked a co-worker for help. The restaurant recommended was closed that day--something you would think a local would know. There were two doors to the breakfast room, one of which was closed when we went in. When we left, the staff inexplicably told use to exit using the door that had been closed on our way in.
The wifi in the room was terrible. We could hardly get a signal at all. Perhaps it was better closer to the office, but the management needs to ensure that all rooms can get a good signal.
Lastly, I have a funny story to relate. When we arrived, we put our water bottles in the fridge to get cold for our onward journey the next day. It was nice having the fridge in the room. However, we we left, we forgot the water bottles. We turned around and went back to the hotel. I noticed one of the cleaning staff going into the room, so a ran over there and knocked on the door. No one answered, but noticing the door ajar, I opened it. A man's voice called out, "I'm in the bathroom," and I saw a hand reach out to close the bathroom door. I snuck in the room, grabbed the water bottles out of the fridge, and ran out of the room. We were back on the road in no time.
You have no recent hotel searches.
