Big mistake.
the good:
1-i was pleasantly surprised as the breakfast was great and was having cold and hot items.great service by the host.
2-Big size rooms.
3-Affordable price.
4-Very comfortable bed.
the BAD:
1-the temp was set at 63,yes 63 in January when its freezing out and snowing,it was warmer in the hall then in the room.you cant adjust the temperature as its remotely set.
2-dirty uncleaned bathroom, dirt liquid stains near the windows,cigarette burns in the comforter,lamp shades stained,wall paper falling apart.
3-Staff with mustache was ogling women patrons, that's very disrespectful and makes them feel uncomfortable.
4-you can hear the talk in the rooms next to you on both sides.
5-Truck noise passing by.
Conclusion: For the same price you can stay at another hotel,multiple choices very close.
This is not a 3 star hotel by any stretch of the imagination,its a good hotel if it was classified as a one star hotel.

I have enjoyed staying at La Quinta Inns & Suites they have serviced me very well. They made my stay very comfortable. Their food is outstanding! This is a place that is recommended to all my friends and family.

If you want a good night’s rest, go elsewhere

We specifically asked for a quiet room, I guess they thought over the lounge/bar would due. Up until midnight it was fine, between 12:30 am and 2:30 am, the rabble-rousers let loose and our sleep was through. This is all in addition to the poor quality of the mattresses, the garbage lining the hallway, and the uncaring staff that responded, “Well… whaddya want me to do?”

Room Tip: Try the opposite corner of the building or another inn

The hotel was good, rooms were clean, and the staff were friendly. I will recommend this hotel to a friend for sure. The only thing is that I wish if they have more varieties for the breakfast. The restaurant at the hotel did not have varieties as well.

Dirty, noisy, poorly maintained. The hallways were dirty, the bar allowed noisy children to invade, breakfast was late and missing elements. Not a good place to stay. There are lots of other options in the same area. Choose one of them. This place needs a lot of training and care.

There was a stale tobacco smell in hallway and used towels and surgical gloves on the floor by stair well. There was no WiFi for entire stay, and the breakfast is lame as compared to other La Quinta facilities.
