“Yuk - won't stay here again”
Reviewed August 15, 2009

Booked here because it was advertised as pet friendly and we had our small dog with us. No pillow cases (yuk!!), no towels or wash cloths, no toiletries (except for one bar of soap), broken phone with bare wires hanging from outlet, remote broken. Red stains on carpet. Room 249 It did offer a free breakfast, but considering the uncleanliness of the hotel itself, we decided not to take a chance.

We stayed here for four nights over Christmas to spend time with family. We had our two pups with us and needed a hotel that allowed pets. We were very pleasantly surprised with the upkeep and cleanliness of the room we stayed at, there was no evidence of pets ever being in the room! It was spotless, odorless and very good size.

Service at the check-in/out counter was friendly enough (even when we checked in at 4am on Christmas morning). Breakfast was mediocre but that's to be expected from the price (we paid $55 per night including taxes, no surcharge for pets which I thought was great!). I tried WiFi but connection was on and off and was pretty slow.

Major complaint is the noise from outside your door, very evident for us in the mornings with people going by (the hotel is exterior corridor) and I could hear the traffic from our room. The noise sensitivity could be compounded by our lack of sleep, every night we didn't return to the hotel until 3/4am and would be out again by mid-morning. We were in a room on the ground floor towards the front of the hotel near the road, a 2nd floor room towards the back may be quieter.

I rated this a four because it exceeded our expectations and the price was excellent, especially since we had pets with us. We just used the hotel a few hours a night for sleep as time was mostly spent with family.

Definitely not worth more than 2 stars. Room was acceptable, desk staff accommodating. Down side was the stained carpet and the noise. Seems to be a party hotel and the staff allows it. Inside my room the noise was not bad, but since I smoke and had to leave my room to do so, I didn't always feel comfortable with all the partying and rowdiness around me. Even if you don't smoke, you might have to leave your room once in a while and the loud party people might make you wish you had stayed elsewhere if sleep and/or quiet are your main priorities. I won't stay there again.

Stayed July 2008

This "inn" has major problems: Coffee maker did not work in lobby for entire two days stay, and no effort was made to fix or replace it. Hotel workers and guests without handicap parking permits were parked both days illegally. Shower was so long that it was impossible to take a shower without standing on it and bathroom exhaust fan did not work. The La Quinta on Univ. near the airport looks better from the outside anyway. Banner at hotel advertised $59 per room but we paid $72 on Priceline.

#155 - Non-smoking, poolside room. King-size bed with recliner. Price about $80, including tax.

Room and bathroom were clean. Non-smoking room was just a former smoking room with a lot of air freshener. Painted over water-damaged ceiling in the bathroom. 5' showerhead was difficult for tall people.

Pool noise from the late-night drunken swimmers was even louder than the air conditioner. Air conditioner cooled, but did not remove the humidity from the air.

Public trashcan near the ice and soft-drink machines was overflowing with empty beer cans when we checked in mid-afternoon. No change late the next morning when we checked out.

If you really have to stay at a La Quinta in Huntsville, try the one on the west end of University. It's slightly nicer and more convenient to restaurants.
