After reading some of the reviews on TripAdvisor I thought this would be a good place to stay, but after looking at the hotel grounds and the room and the people hanging out around the hotel, I quickly cancelled my reservation and moved to another hotel in the area. I don't know if La Quinta on Speedway Blvd could even qualify as a "hotel" as it has a definite "motel" atmosphere.
The room, a king with fridge, was large but was also on ground floor. There was only a dead-bolt for the entrance door (no safety latch) and I did not like patio door that had alot of give, despite a "safety rod". When I brought this up to the Front Desk Manager she assured me there was security that patroled the grounds. However I insisted I did not feel safe.
Luckily I was able to cancel my reservation with no charge and I didn't have to argue with the front desk.
It may be an "okay" place to stay for some, but not for business travelers or families.More
