The description from La Quinta says the property is newly renovated but that can't be very recent, as the bathroom tiles were mildewed and the shower looked at least a couple of years old; and I found a few hairs in the tub. But the rest of the room was clean and the front desk staff is very friendly.
Be warned, however, that the free wi-fi may not work in all the rooms. My room, 210, could not receive a signal on any of my 3 devices (which are in perfect working order). The front desk staff was no help on this problem, a major issue for me since I was traveling on business and wi-fi is critical.
Also, the lobby is under construction and when I asked for a corkscrew the front desk said they "couldn't find anything due to the construction." Perhaps a minor point but I was just off a flight and wanted to relax in the room with a glass of wine but then had to drive around looking for a corkscrew.
Although they have nice flat screen TVs the signal is old fashioned analog -- looks like TV circa 1995. Why bother spending all that money on new TVs and not provide a Hi-Def signal??
Overall a decent place to stay but these little issues add up to a mediocre experience. I expect better and could find better at other nearby chain hotels for a similar price.
