This hotel was listed as one of the top 5 in the Mobile, AL region when we stayed - currently, it's #4. If this is a legitimate ranking, then I'm afraid Mobile is full of roach motels.
The location is convenient - it's outside the traffic of Mobile. It wasn't hard to find.
The room was large enough for us (2 adults plus one infant with a pack-and-play-type crib), and the bed was nice. The TV, as I recall, was a large, flat-panel unit. That's about where the positives end for this property, in my opinion.
This is a 100% non-smoking, PET FRIENDLY hotel. Had we known that, we would not have stayed there. I'm sure housekeeping does its best when cleaning up after pets, but our carpet had pet hair on it, and so did our socks, luggage, crib, and anything else that touched the carpet. This is something that should be remedied, whether by purchasing more expensive, higher-suction vacuums or using the cheap carpet squeegee-type brooms sold at local discount stores. There was human and pet hair stuck on to the door of the bathroom as well as pushed into the corners of the bathroom (suggestion it was just mopped over and pushed into corners rather than picked up).
The breakfast was average. The person working in the breakfast lounge had the nerve to have a "tip jar" out. I guess her job doesn't pay enough - that's an issue between her and her manager, but to indirectly solicit tips by placing a tip jar out is a bit laughable.
I can't directly attribute it to this particular La Quinta, but my wife and I were violently ill that evening (the La Quinta is the only thing we ate/touched in common that day). Of course, any number of things could have caused it, but the average - at best - experience we had at this property led us to believe we picked up a virus/bug of some type there.
To their credit, the manager did knock $10 off our total bill when I told her of the animal hair. Having never stayed at a La Quinta before, and having relied on the high ranking on TripAdvisor.com, I didn't think $99 was a high price for this property, given that we stayed between Christmas and New Years' Eve. However, I wouldn't pay more than $69 to stay here if I were you. It's simply just an average hotel with average accompaniments.
