“Fine for an overnight stay, and pet friendly!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 18, 2013

I chose this motel because I was traveling with my cat, moving him from Cincy to my daughter's house in New Orleans. All LaQuintas are pet friendly (except for 4 in the entire country, I think.) The location was good (except for being a little hard to find back behind a couple other businesses), room was average, front desk person was friendly and helpful. Their pool area looked very nice, altho I did not use it.

I have stayed at other affordable hotels but La Quinta Inn was without a doubt the worst! Room service came in at 10 am on my first stay even though I had prepaid for 2 nights and check out times are at noon. Since I was sleeping I told them to come back, and they never did, they didnt even leave clean towels. When I reported this to the front desk, I was told to come get my towels in person.

I was also very dissatisfied with the breakfast. All they had was 1 waffle machine for everyone, so you can imagine the long line and wait.

I do not recommend this hotel at all!

I've stayed at this motel several times the last 2 years while visiting my granddaughter at school and ball games. Roll Tide! Until this trip the desk help has been extremely friendly and helpful. Not sure what happened, but this trip they acted like it was an inconvenience for me to even walk in the door. After driving in pouring rain for over 5 hours, I took my bags to the room and left to go get something to eat. Upon my return, I discovered the room wasn't very clean. There was trash in the floor, no trash can liners in the trash cans, hair in the sink and no ash tray in a smoking room. I went to the front desk and asked to be moved to another room and was told there were no other rooms available. I'm sure that wasn't true because the parking lot wasn't very full. I was also told there were no ash trays, but they would give me an extra wash cloth so I could clean the sink.
When I went to the lobby for coffee the next morning there was none and I asked if they would be making more coffee and was met with a blank stare. Finally, the woman did make more coffee, but wasn't happy about it.
Sorry, La Quinta, but I won't be staying with you again.

Room Tip: Avoid the place unless you want dirty rooms and unfriendly people.

Worst stay in motel I've had They gave me a dirty room an got mad with me when I told them my room hadn't been cleaned. NOISEY also. Front desk clerks make you feel like you're bothering them. Cleaning person kept ramming the vacuum into the wall next door waking me up. Non -accommodating employees. I'll take my business elsewhere and encourage others to do the same

The hotel is clean but worn. There is no elevator to get luggage to the upper floor. They refused to take their coupon claiming there were blackout days on the weekend. However the coupon said valid all days. The beds appear to be full not queen so with two of us it was crowded. I would not stay there again. There are many other hotels within a half mile.

We were looking for a pet friendly hotel and we were extremely pleased with the location, cleanliness and comfort of out stay. I signed up for rewards program and have already recommended LaQuinta to all my dog loving friends and family.
