I would have rated this place higher had I not experienced a problem with the cleaning staff.
First, the good: The rooms are well-kept and clean. The building is still nice and modern-looking, and the front desk staff were helpful. The bed was comfortable enough for the quality of hotel.
The average: The internet is tolerable. Good for loading web pages, not much else. Sometimes it was easier to hop onto the free WiFi from the Quality Inn, which has a surprisingly robust signal. La Quinta should look into either a larger bandwidth pipe, or a better bandwidth balancer on their network. Standard-def channels on HDTVs are a pet peeve of mine. It's 2014, these are two areas hotels at all budget levels need to invest in.
The bad: Granted, the week I was here saw temps struggle to get over 10°F during the day, and some strong winds at night, but the room heater (set to 74°) struggled to keep the room above 67° and there was a constant, frigid draft coming through when the heater wasn't actively heating.
The intolerable: When packing my suitcase the night before leaving, I was rather annoyed to find that a bag of Cheetos I had purchased earlier in the week (and had left in the shopping bag by the desk) had not only been opened and emptied, but carefully fluffed out and placed back in the shopping bag upside-down as to make it appear they were still unopened. Look, I don't know if the cleaning staff aren't paid enough to afford snack food, or if they smoke a little pot to make the job bearable and suddenly get the munchies... I really don't care, it was a bag of Cheetos, after all... but it's little things like this that make me have to stop and carefully inventory everything I have to make sure nothing else was taken. This really tarnishes the hotel's reputation and could affect wether I stay at another La Quinta again.
