when we first walked in we saw one lil cricket trying to get out . i was like oh a lucky cricket our trip will be a good one and I let him outside. what i didnt know was that this room is death! i have counted a total of 11 DEAD CRICKETS. i dont know if the cleaning staff just didnt clean or if they came in after but it is unacceptable. i just cant wrap my head around how so many crickets got in a room with out them noticing.and the toilet only will flush when you hold down the handle. ........after all that if you really want to know yes the beds were amazing but really thats all i have to say on the positive note.

Requested 3 rooms close together, non-smoking. Got there at check-in time, 1 rooms on 2nd floor, one on other side of building and one in another building! One ended up being a smoking room and it reeked of smoke. My room smelled like cat urine, room 2 had a broken drawer that could not be closed without taking the whole dresser apart and also had an overflowing toilet. Smoking room was "fumigated" but stunk again halfway through the night. We mentioned issues to front desk and got no result so we checked out. Looks like it has not been updated in many years, other than paint to cover up the worst...would not recommend. Moved to a Courtyard Marriott in pristine condition, closer to downtown for only $7 more per night. MUCH better.

The room was not ready on time. We left, came back. Got to our room, not represented at all like the pictures. The pool was very small. The Carpet was filthy. The Air Conditioner was very loud, like broken. Something clanging. Got Maintenance, brought a new AC, Broke it, We finally got a room in Round Rock. Money back, thank you!

Room Tip: Only bad La Quinta I have ever stayed in, or tried to. My history with La Quinta has always been gr...

We stayed here with a large group so had about 8 rooms total. You would think they would be nicer to us. When we arrived we gave them our names and he didnt even acknowledge us... just stared at his computer. Told us we didnt have a room and about 15 minutes later he goes "okay fine heres some rooms" Like we didnt reserve them! But we did! Very rude!!!! the rooms smelled terrible and the sheets were dirty. when we asked for more towels they didnt have any. We stayed for 2 nights and really wish we wouldnt have. The location isnt terrible but the hotel is.

This hotel should be ashamed. We booked our room over a month in advance, we were put at the very back of the hotel, we asked for a non-smoking room (and supposedly that's what we were given) but yet the room right next door was a smoking room. The room smelled horrible.. and I don't mean of cigarettes... it smelled like dirty sheets and body odor. There was no refrigerator in the room or a microwave.. and for 90 per night.. you would think.. or maybe that's just me. When our friends arrived, the next day, they were given a really nice larger room with a fridge and a microwave (and it didn't smell like b.o. but it did smell of flea spray). When I asked about the lack of refrigerator in our room, I was told that those were reserved for diabetic guests and on request only (hmmm.. it had it's own closet and my friends aren't diabetic). Anyway, usually I am not that picky and I probably wouldn't have written such a scathing review or any review at all, but this time... I felt it truly deserved others to know what they are getting into. The food at the Indian restaurant next door was truly good.

Room Tip: If you must book at this hotel..make sure you ask them not to book you on the back side (I call it t...
