We were given a key that opened someone else's room and walked in. Fortunately no one was in it. Went back to the desk and waited again for someone to help us. Receptionist did not seem too concerned. Got another key.Only one elevator that was dirty and smelled like grease. A big party down the hall had loud music and a dog that was loose in the hotel. Went to the fitness room. No water in the fountain. You have to walk quite a few blocks to get to grocery store. Mostly Indian restaurants nearby. Not a nice neighborhood.
I would spend the extra money and stay closer to the campus. Breakfast was the only thing that was OK. We have stayed at La Quinta before and this one does not measure up to the standards of the others. It desperately needs updating and renovation.
