Midland, Texas is experienced another boom because of the high oil prices. This La Quinta along with many other Midland motels are taking advantage of the situation with high prices and a poorly maintained motel. I am a bit shocked that La Quinta still allows this motel to be branded under their name with the terrible conditions here.
This motel will not survive under the current management when the oil boom is over.
The good side was that my room was very clean and everything worked well.
The bad side
Pool walls covered in mustard algae. Disgusting!!!! All outside trash cans overflowing with trash on sidewalks. Parking lot never cleaned. Several of the staircases have police tape blocking their use because they are not safe to use.
Upon check in it took the clerk between 10 and 15 minutes to check the person arriving before me into a room. (she was having difficulty finding him a king size smoking room, finally gave him a non smoking room and told him it would be ok to smoke in it because she thought someone had smoked in it before) The redeeming thing she did was apologize to me for having to wait so long. That did help me give this motel a better evaluation.
The breakfast would have been acceptable if they had not run out of food. The waffle batter dispenser ran out and there was still 45 minutes left in the service.
Customers will remember their experience here and avoid this motel in the future. Midland has had booms and busts relating to the oil business. This dump will never survive a "bust". The current owners must be laughing all the way to the bank with the ridiculous rates they are charging and not maintaining this property.
Avoid Midland by stopping 100 miles away where the prices are less than half and the properties are being maintained.
