“Not the best”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed April 26, 2014

Breakfast was very simple and taken away half an hour ahead of posted times. Walls are very thin and every noise in adjoining rooms can be heard. Too dated for price charged. Desk and housekeeping staff very nice.

The location was great and the room was clean. The staff was excellent. The only downfall I encountered was the air conditioning system. It never seemed to cool enough for the entire room. It is a wall unit and it was only cool near the unit.

A good value for a very nice room. Service was prompt, polite and efficient. A small problem with the high-speed internet service was quickly corrected. Great comfortable bed! I'll be back when in the area.

1 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2014

This room was adequate in size, but filthy. There was trash on the floor in the hallway outside my room. The bathroom was disgusting. Mold on the shower curtain, an open partially filled shampoo bottle, water that didn't get hot enough and grit on the floor. The carpet was old and covered with lint and threads and just stuff from people walking on it.
Got cold in the night and turned on the heater to 68 degrees. I was afraid it was on fire. The air smelled like fire and smoke. No extra blanket. Bottom drawer in dresser did not open. No micro or fridge.
The breakfast was pathetic! Oranges and apples, milk sitting on a counter in a pitcher with no sign of refrigeration. No waffle batter available. Muffins were obviously old and hard. The final disappointment was the morning desk clerk, when I checked out. Only words spoken to me were, "do you wanna keep this on your American Express?" Not a smile, not a thanks, not a have a good day - nothing. Not an inquiry as to how my stay was, just a sullen young woman who clearly did not want to be there.
This hotel in no way lives up to the LaQuinta name. Would never recommend or return. My stay was for the night of April 7 - room 310.

La Quinta San Antonio Convention center is a great hotel. Close to where I needed to attend classes and close to River walk. So you have shopping, dining and walking all in one. would suggest this hotel to anyone who needs to traverse the city and does not want to drive or invest in cab fare.

Although an older hotel, this La Quinta is well-maintained and very clean. The staff are helpful and friendly. It was a quiet night in a comfortable room. I wouldn't hesitate to go back. Breakfast was a typical free continental style. Waffles were good. Yogurt and fruit were fresh.
