My wife and I like to visit NYC two or three times a year. We've adopted the La Quinta chain and have always been satisfied. This time around we tried the Paramus location for two nights because our usual La Quinta (in Secaucus) was booked solid. Unfortunately the overall quality was disappointing.
Good news: all staff encountered were quite friendly; our room was made up with some care; the high-speed Internet access was indeed high-speed and worked very well; our room was surprisingly quiet for a location so close to a major thoroughfare (US 17).
Bad news: our "non smoking" room reeked of stale cigarette smoke, the aroma permeated the walls; we noticed old cobwebs on the ceiling in the room corners; noticed a good amount of mold and mildew in the shower; the TV was an old cathode ray tube model as opposed to the advertised flat screen (worked fine; just wasn't what was advertised); breakfast was a minimal offering (fresh quality, just very minimal compared to Secaucus location).
In short, the Paramus location is badly in need of a serious spring (or fall) cleaning and a few gallons of paint at a minimum. The immediate area is definitely NOT pedestrian friendly but that's obviously out of La Quinta's control. More care (and $$$) should be invested in the upkeep and maintenance of the rooms. We will be returning to the NYC area early next year, but we will not be returning to this La Quinta location. OK for one night on business. Not OK for vacation.
