“Decent Hotel. Decent Price”
Reviewed July 26, 2014 via mobile

Hotel accomodations are decent.

Be aware there are many trucks and trains passing close by that you cam hear

Bed was decent but many holes in the sheets. Couple of mold spots in tub.

Facility looks a bit older with dark colored solid wood doors

Overall decent for the price and ok for a day or 2

I came late and the staff was ready for me. They checked me in very quickly when I was very tired and needed rest. I went to my room and it was nice and cool. AC was on just perfect. When I woke up the next morning, I wanted breakfast. The breakfast was cooked to perfection. Maybe if they add more varieties of breakfast then the service would be perfect. Other than that everything else was great! I would recommend this to all my friends and family and I would love to come back.

I've stayed at quite a few the La Quinta's and have always been satisfied. The staff seem to be very indifferent, the place look dirty and had it musty odor to it. The room was lik a low budget motel from the 70's. There were loose tiles in the bathroom and the grout was moldy and dirty. The dining room was dirty,old and beat up, The breakfast buffet was just as unappetizing.

My entire family stayed in this hotel for a wedding. I checked in the day before without any issues. The rest of my family that came in the day of the wedding had made araingements to check in early (@ 1200) but when they arrived there were no rooms available and couldn't check in until after the wedding.
The carpets in the hall and room looked dirty and have a musty smell. The refrigerator in our room was off when we arrived, so I turned it on but it never stayed cold.
The coffee pot in our room brewed so light it looked like tea water instead of coffee.
The bed were so soft that they felt like you hit the floor when you sat on them.
The continental breakfast had runny scrabbled eggs, hard as a rock bagels and warm yogurt.
After the wedding the family and wedding party came back to the hotel lounge, which we were told would have a DJ, did not. For non alcoholic drinks all they had available was Diet coke and Sprite. We had about 20 people with us who ordered appetizers or meals. These took about 30 min to come out. Even before all of the food was served I tried to order hot wings and was told "sorry the kitchen was closed".
Anytime we asked a question or complained about the issues or service we received an attitude from the front desk staff.
Will never recommend or stay here again.

Staff was rude. Said they were pet friendly, but refused to let us keep our 3rd dog in the room. We explained that they were 3 10 pounds dogs. " No exception to this rule". We've stayed in several la quintas never encountered this problem. The indoor pool floor was slimy to walk on.

Room Tip: If you have more than 2 dogs don't tell them

Room was good, staff was great,. We were with two girls softball teams ,(approx. 35 rooms and stayed 5 nights. Management accommodated all our needs and even set up a pasta and chicken buffet for the girls after there normal serving hours. Best bartender ever, JD, met us first night and knew all of the names on the second night. He made our stay fun, classy guy.

Best advice is to stay away from this Hotel. Very dirty, food is not fit for consumption, ceilings leak, carpets are stained and filthy, bugs in rooms. Staff is arrogant and not responsive to guests complaints.

Room Tip: Find a another Hotel!
