New décor, clean, friendly service. All you want in a hotel. Coffee available through the day which was nice. Added amenities in vending machines such as frozen entrees. Breakfast the usual at LQ. Quiet room in a busy city.

The hotel is in a good location, right off the highway and 7 minutes away from Texas State. The staff was friendly and check in/check out was a breeze. Breakfast was decent (waffles, juice, coffee, cereal, hard boiled eggs, bagels, yogurt, muffins) and the eating area was kept cleaned. Beds where comfortable and room was clean, though the hallway carpets... More

Needed toilet paper....front desk informs us they cant give out toilet paper they are a green hotel. I don't spend $90 and have to buy or bring my own toilet paper. Guess this will be my last stay here. Room is nice, lobby pretty after remodel. Maybe they went over budget and cant afford toilet paper

Robbin, Thank you for leaving your comments about our hotel. I am so sorry there was a misunderstanding about the toilet paper. Yes we are a green hotel and if there is an adequate amount of toilet paper on the roll it is not replaced with a new one. However if guests need additional toilet paper we are more than... More

Hotel looks ok from the street, but the rooms are old and need to be updated. I had a room on the first floor and could hear the upstairs neighbor pacing all night. The front desk checked another family into my room. So the lady shows up and sets her luggage in front of my door. Much different scenario if... More

I love the King Rooms we were given. Very nice, exceptionally clean and comfortable. I especially liked the room divider between the love seat/desk area and the bed. Like a mini-suite. My only complaint: there were two waffle makers at breakfast. A family had hi-jacked the two available and we just gave up on the waffles. Maybe add one more... More

I have a La Quinta Rewards account, so I stay with them frequently because I travel with my pooches and they are very dog friendly. This La Quinta was ten minutes from one of the outfitters for tubing on the San Marcos, so it was a perfect location for us. Nice pool, but no hot tub. Free Continental breakfast was... More

This was a clean hotel. The staff were friendly and were restocking breakfast cereal and breakfast items when they ran out. I did not encounter any problems while I was there. I will be returning to this same hotel when I go to see my student at Texas State.
