“The good, the bad and the smell!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

First the good - the staff at this hotel was top notch! Everyone I encountered was friendly, personable and helpful. From housekeeping to the front desk I couldn't have received any friendlier service at a high end hotel. Too bad they were at such a sub par hotel. The entire facility is worn out. We were there on a football game weekend, therefore a full facility, and only one elevator was operating. But the worst part of our stay was the smell! A dreadful sewer gas odor wafted up from the very slow drains in the lavatory and the shower. It was so awful that just brushing teeth was gag worthy! Because the hotel was full, we couldn't be moved to another room, so we suffered with the smell. No plumbing repairs on the weekend. Despite the great staff I would not return to this property.

I stayed at the Lubbock West Med. Center La Quinta the week of Oct 22 to Oct 26, 2012. When you walk into the front of the building (and sometimes the back) get ready for a nice strong smell of cigarette smoke. This is a smoking hotel and it permeates the lobby (but not in my room.) They apparently allow cigarette smokers to smoke right outside the main entrance so it gets into the lobby. For 3 days I had to ask the Staff daily to replace my entrance key as it would only work 1 time to enter during the day. After the 3rd day of doing this, somebody at the front desk mentioned that the batteries in the room door locking mechanism might be "out." Really!! That turned out to be correct. Mattress terrible. Breakfast not worth it. Cold showers on Wednesday and the entire building hot water heaters, or a pipe, failed.

Good things: Internet connection was good, which is a big plus for a hotel, still, in these days. Very conveniently located (as are many other better hotels adjacent to Texas Tech and the Medical School.)

Regardless, would not stay here again.

Room Tip: Don't stay here.

The lady at the Front Desk called Deborah was very nice, friendly and helpful to us during our stay at the hotel. Great customer service! Check in and check out was fast and she was attentive to our needs. She even remembered our names when we went up to the desk to ask for assistance. Housekeeping kept our room clean and we got supplies when we requested for them. We will consider staying at this hotel next time when we are in Lubbock.

The mattresses are worn out. The window had been left open when we entered and we had two lizards running aroung the room. The bathroom sink was stopped up and I asked two days in a row for it to be checked by a plumber. When we checked out on the third day, they had never checked it. Also, the water pressure is awful in the shower and the shower walls and tub were filthy!!!
