We've stayed at several different La Quinta Inns. One was new and nice and the others were older, slightly shabby, but clean. The staff at this La Quinta was very nice. I arrived early, the check-in person had my room made up and it was ready within 15 mins. I had a smoking, pet friendly king bed room. Upon entering the room, I first noticed the cheap faux wood floor in the entry/sink area. It was understandably damp and smelled strongly of cleaner. When the floor dried, it was sticky to walk on. Next was the LOUD humming of the refrigerator. The outlet was behind the dresser so I couldn't unplug it, though maybe I could have turned it off inside? Next up was the desk chair. It was mustard yellow mesh with a 10 inch long, dark, disgusting triangular shaped stain. I didn't even want to think about what caused that stain. The vinyl covered reclining chair arms were very dusty in a not very difficult to reach area of the chair. The bed made loud spring noises and was very soft. The room smelled of (dog?) urine and disinfectant. I opened the window to try and air it out which turned off the A/C. It took 30 minutes or more for the A/C to start working again. It was hot in Portland, about 85 degrees. My little pug found a pill next to the bed on the floor. Thank goodness he didn't eat it. I looked it up and it was some sort of muscle relaxant, which probably would have made him very sick had he eaten it. I laid down for a nap and for about 45 minutes I kept hearing what sounded like someone tossing glass into a glass filled garbage bag. It must have been the housekeeping staff, though why they had to be so noisy I can't imagine. I woke up from the nap, fed the dogs, gathered our stuff and left. I couldn't stand to be in that room for another moment. I rated the property 3 out of 5 because the staff was very nice, the lobby was clean and I'm assuming from the other reviews of this hotel that I was unlucky to have a bad experience.
