La Quinta Inn Amarillo East Airport Area

Older exterior door motel that was fine for the night stay. It shares the block with a Taco Bell, Wendy's, and Denny's so you'll have a place to eat if you just want to walk. Otherwise it was clean but old. Breakfast was meager and the breakfast room was barely more than the original waiting room and the rear hall. For just passing through it was alright but if I were staying longer I would go elsewhere.

This is really a motel, not hotel. Doors lead out directly to parking lot and the outside is very dated. We were woken up before 5:30 am by idling bus outside our room. The room itself was very nice and clean, but the faucet in the bath dripped all night. The beds were very comfortable free wifi was great. Overall, this was fine for a quick stay with our cat on our way to somewhere else.

We needed a place to stay pretty quick during a road trip. We got a great rate on Hotwire and stayed here. We checked in after midnight, slept, ate the breakfast and left. The room was clean, no smells and AC was cool. The staff was pleasant and breakfast was usual fare. Overall I was impressed by this La Quinta, it is older but decent. The toilet was leaking but I was able to fix it myself without messing with the front office.

Another hotel with no elevator. I called this reservation in and specifically asked if there was an elevator; when told no, I requested a room on the ground floor. Got there and we were on 2nd floor! They were nice, changed the room for us, a handicap room, same rate, but if there hadn't been one available we'd have been out of luck. Very irritating! That's why I gave it 4 stars instead of 5.
The room was very nice, clean, with all the usual accoutrements; king size bed was wonderful, WiFi worked fine, no charge, parking convenient and also free. Didn't try the pool but it looked nice. There was some noise from other guests but nothing to complain about. Breakfast the usual nice selection, plenty there, excellent coffee.

Room Tip: no elevator!

From the outside this is not a terribly attractive facility. However the room was clean, good size, and well outfitted. The door had been kicked in at least once, but was repaired. Our room directly faced a drive through line at a Wendy's or similar fast food restaurant, less than 30 yards away. One might expect that would be terribly noisy, but with the air conditioning unit going, it wasn't a noise problem. After leaving some shoes in the room I called a day later. The front desk person took my number and promised to call back after consulting with housekeeping to see if they found them. I never heard back. Thus, I rate the service as poor.

Room Tip: You may wish to ask not to be in the wing that faces the drive-through lane in the adjacent fast foo...

the price was good, the stay was very average; establishment is dated and aged, my biggest beef is that they charged me two rooms, one that I used and one "no show" under a slightly different name...that took almost two weeks to get resolved even tho I only made one reservation

I'm not sure what all of the really negative reviews are about. It is an older hotel, but our room was extremely clean and very well maintained. We travel with dogs, so we stay at La Quinta Inns often and, especially for the price, this hotel was what I expected. The location is also really great, right off I-40, which was important to us as we were just passing through. I didn't notice anything wrong with the part of town it's in--it seemed as if most of the other guests I encountered were also just passing through on I-70. My room didn't have a door that opens directly to the outside, but if it had I wouldn't have felt unsafe. Lots of fast food and chain restaurants nearby. I can't really comment as to any other restaurants nearby as we got in late, so it was Wendy's next door for us. I would stay here again if I passed through. The only reason it is a 4 is because I try to save 5's for really, really great hotels.
