“Great Stay for a Good Price”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 20, 2011

Stayed out here for a Little League Football Tourney. Had friends and extended family with us. The hotel was very clean with nice amenities for a family to take advantage of. They have a basketball court in the back for the kids. The front desk was very nice and helpful. There breakfast was good. We have stayed out here several times for sporting events with the kids and each time they have not disappointed us at all.

Let's be honest: If you are not familiar with The Woodlands, EVERYTHING is hard to find. The Woodlands, Texas is one of the largest master-planned communities in the country. It is a beautiful area that has just about everything. The Cynthia Woods Mitchell Pavilion is just a few miles away, which is the second largest outdoor amphitheater in the world. The Woodlands Mall is in the same area, along with The Woodlands "Market Street", an upscale-shopping area (put it this way, the Kardashians have been spotted there).

The hotel itself isn't necessarily the "nicest", but it isn't a dump by any means. This is the only La Quinta i've visited that features kitchens in the rooms.

The breakfast is average.

The staff is incredible, including housekeeping. Left my wallet there, once. It was returned to me without a single dollar missing.

I do, however, advise anyone to book through the hotel directly and not through a provider like Hotwire or Priceline (as seen in a previous bad review of this location). What I have learned in my travels is that when you book through an agency like that, the hotel is typically required to book you in "whatever is available". This means that if you want a room with two beds, you probably aren't going to get it unless you book directly through the hotel. This isn't the hotel's fault. It has something to do with "contracts" from my understanding.

This hotel has recently dropped it's prices considerably. Don't know why, but it is a LOT cheaper to stay here now compared to other hotels in the Woodlands.

Once again, great staff. The front desk is wonderful. You are in good hands if you happen to check in when Lauren or Brandon are working. Very helpful and experienced!

I live in Russia, but come home 2-3 times a year to Texas to see my grandchildren. For the past three yrs I have stayed at La Quinta Inn & Suites, The Woodlands South, each time. Each trip averages 6-8 weeks...I like this hotel , because they have a two room suite, with a king bed , pull out sofa, kitchenette and 2 tvs. If you pay per night the room I get is priced at 110. -130. per night if under 6 nights. When you are staying long term the rate drops down to 89.00 a night.

My grandson spends the night with me frequently , during school breaks , so the two tvs are pretty important.

There is a decent breakfast included .


The housekeepers are very honest as well, I cannot take all my valuables with me everytime I go out of the hotel, and have not had any problems with electronics or other valuables being messed with.

The only problem I have had is in the summer time, crickets come in , when people enter and exit the doors. Move to the 2nd floor if you hate crickets!

The staff are all super duper nice and very helpful.
There is a barbecue area, basketball/volleyball court, and a pool and hot tub. My grandkids love coming to swim with granny.
There is also a pretty good workout facility, and a laundryroom. Plus the fridges have ice makers!

Stayed here for a week on a business trip. Always welcomed to see a La Quinta! Comfortable hotel! Great for business trips! Lots of local food options around. Also not far from the Woodlands Mall!

This hotel was, by far, my worst experience booking through Priceline in five years. It seems like they are trying to make extra money by charging for a specific room type - even though Five Star hotels have NO problem filling a room-type request. If the rooms are available, why wouldn't they put you in it? Because, they say, a Double is more expensive to clean.... Either way, a room is a room, and if a guest wants a double, they should get a double - no matter how they paid. This is the only hotel I have had an issues requsting a room type with out of my many many travels and hotel stays. They did NOT make it right, nor did they have anyone of a truly managerial status for me to talk to. Their "Guest Relations Department" isn't open on weekends. The "supervisor" i spoke with did not know who the company president or CEO is, and wanted to transfer me to yet another supervisor - forget about it. I will beg and bug Priceline to drop them, and I will post it everywhere I can find - La Quinta SUCKS.

We went to the Texas Renaissance Festival, and it was recommended that we pick a hotel in the Woodlands. The hotel looks relatively new. The room was in good shape. The bathroom was large for a hotel room and clean. We got a suite, which came with a small kitchenette. We enjoyed having a fridge and microwave. There is also a coffeemaker, which we used to make fresh coffee. Also the free wireless internet was a bonus. The only downside to our visit was a bus load of high school kids who we could hear running up and down the stairs next to our room. Thankfully that didn't last too long. We weren't impressed with the continental breakfast, but since it was free we couldn't complain. They have a waffle station where you can make your own waffles. I mostly ate the scrambled eggs. One morning there was salsa, and another ketchup. The location of the hotel is convenient because it is relatively near a mall, grocery store, and restaurants. Finding the hotel is a little confusing because it sits away from the service road. But it's also good because that means less noise from the huge interstate.

In conclusion, I was very happy with the hotel and would stay here again.

Stayed here for one night. First room (actually a suite) we went to was fine -- except for a major ant invasion over the AC unit. We were moved to another unit downstairs right away, though, after we saw that. Second room was fine -- warm, because they weren't expecting to need it, but cooled off quickly. Only problem with this room is that it is right under the stairs and near the back door, and so was VERY NOISY late night and early morning with people coming and going.

Staff was fine, room otherwise was fine, everything no problem. Breakfast wasn't much to speak of but most aren't -- just your basic bagels and juice and stuff.

After a *horrible* stay in a Hampton Inn up the road, we elected to spend the extra $15 and stay here. Good choice. Would do it again. Too bad the hotels in this area are all a bit overpriced... oh well. After that experience, an "average" hotel, where everybody does their jobs well enough and nothing major is wrong, is a good good thing!

  • Liked — Easy move to a new room when the first had a problem
  • Disliked — Ants in the first room; noise around exterior door and stairway
