Our stay at La Quinta Inn and Suites was pretty good while in Texas. While it is not the Hilton, the rooms were clean, the beds super comfortable, and the staff were friendly. A small free breakfast is offered daily too.

This was one of the worst La Quinta Inns I have stayed at. The furniture had stains on them, no bags in the trash cans, no coffee for me to make in my room. There were cracks on the wall. I've been to better La Quinta Inns and expected a lot better when i arrived here. there are other La... More

chevonnel2016, I'm sorry that you had this experience us. Our staff works hard every day to provide clean, well maintained rooms supplied with all the amenities we have to offer. We fell far short of that effort on your behalf. We appreciate your feedback; it will certainly help us improve our operations. We hope you'll once again give us the... More

Great view of the highway, with industrial area surrounding. University is several miles away so not exactly "in" the University area. Being on the I-35 service road you have to drive a several mile circle in order to get anything. Even a "quick trip to Walgreens" or fast food involves driving a few miles down, crossing the interstate, coming back... More

This place should be torn down or at least completely renovated. It is an old worn out place that is charging way too much and delivering little. Grounds are very dirty and parking lot has huge holes. Staff is great, but they can't overcome the problems. Same breakfast everyday for 4 days without any variety... really!

The rates were high for some odd reason on this weekend. The building is old and the rooms had cracks in the ceiling. The bath tub was high up not good for older people. Room was far from the parking lot and the room was on the second floor they claim that's all that was available. Plain and simple the... More

Overall, the room was decent however very old. there was a warning to get in the tub, but my older bones found it a... More

Enjoyed our stay and found the hotel location very good for where we needed to stay. Beds were very comfortable. Plenty of hot water. Air Cond. worked great. Lot of parking. From 1 to 10 I would give it a 10.

Okay everyone, this is a long winded review but you are better off spending the time to read it than wasting your money staying here. The only positives I could find with our stay and that's stretching it were that the bed was comfortable, Wi-Fi connection was great and the pool was clean. Location: TERRIBLE.
