We've stayed at plenty of La Quinta's and been happy, but this one seemed a notch below many others.
The location is in the Mesa Fiesta district of Mesa which is really just a shopping district that never took off. There are a few shops and restaurants in the area but many have closed. It doesn't feel dodgy, it's just oddly empty. If you want access to the East side of Phoenix, it's a good launch location since it's just two blocks from Hwy 60. Oddly enough, the police headquarters is right across the street which unfortunately means the occasional siren (more than you'd expect in the suburbs).
We stayed in a suite and found it to be a reasonable size for us and our 16 mo old daughter so she could sleep in the other room, but we found a lot of small annoyances. The TV in the bedroom didn't work properly (we discovered only after we had put our daughter down in the main room and couldn't call anyone), the couch in the living room sagged uncomfortably, our room just didn't seem as clean as it could have been (we found popcorn under the couch and earrings on the table), the french doors between the bedroom and the living room really didn't close anymore (the latching mechanisms were broken) and the french doors between the living room and bathroom also had seen better days, the closets used two different hanger sizes (so you couldn't transfer something from one closet to the other, the door jam looked as though it was on its last legs, light switches and electrical outlets didn't work, and the hotel WiFi was sorely lacking and would regularly disconnect us. The breakfast wasn't as nice as other La Quinta's we've been in, but it wasn't bad; they had cereal, waffles, hard boiled eggs, muffins, yogurt, coffee and juice, but it was always a challenge to find a place to sit.
Those are all minor nits...and none that we really felt like we wanted to bring up to management, but they just added up over our stay (of 4 nights). The hotel just felt older and more run down than we like.
