“Young Businessmen In Back Lane??”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 10, 2013 via mobile

Let me start by saying that the grounds are in A-1 condition, contrary to some reviews.

The hotel staff, extremely friendly and helpful. As was mentioned.

The food. For a free meal, I guess it works.

The area. Not the best. Do NOT walk to the Dome or whatever it is! Kind of unsavoury neighbourhood.

AND..........

what appears to be some sort of "young entrepreneurs" in the back lane. I say it APPEARS. I did not inquire about their wares.

No threats or anything. Good hotel. Security on staff overnight. Close to Casino. Close to smoke shop. ON A RESERVE. If that matters at all. The front desk suggested that is why we checked out a day early. Not the case, the road calls sometimes!

For the money, it is all in all a good hotel. Just stay in at night, I say.

We spent three nights celebrating Sangerfest on the West Coast. The service was excellant, rooms were nice and clean. Beds were very nice. They served dinner two nights, very good, served hot to the tables. This was done in special rooms for about 250 people, one was a banquet. We also enjoyed a late night buffet. All the food was very nicely presented and tasty.

I stayed here because they allowed pets and didn't have a pet fee, so that was what was cool about this place. It was quite loud at night because their airport shuttle makes a loud beeping sound when it backs up and for some reason it always backs up in the parking lot. It was also loud in the morning because the housekeepers were congregating in the hallway (I believe near their supply room) and talking loudly and laughing. It was nice that they had free breakfast and an airport shuttle, although the shuttle driver was not very nice.

Room Tip: Don't get a room next to where the housekeepers hang out. A room away from the parking lot might...

Phones, desk, restaurant, or lounge-all staff top notch. Friendly, knew their stuff and showed my wife and I customer service at it's best.
Reasonable prices in restaurant, along with quality of food came as a surprise.

Although the staff was quite nice, our hallway n the 7th floor smelled musty and our room had a definite urine smell. Quite terrible. Ordered a burger in he almost empty restaurant (now I know why it's empty) and the meat was like reconstituted astronaut food. All texture and no taste. Told the front desk of our experience. They listened to our complaint but made no attempt to compensate us in any way. Will never stay La Quinta again. Period.

Room Tip: Don't choose one here is our tip.

Anna, on the front desk, is happy to be there. Her service is excellent. La Quinta is my new favorite hotel for travel. Rates are at least $20 less than comparable brands, and the quality is outstanding.
