Don't confuse this with the La Quinta Inn & Suites (and notice the slightly different name), also in Las Cruces and a rock throw away from this inn. The one being reviewed is right on the Avenida de Mesilla, while the other is down a side street.
First of all, the good news: I received an amazing price with AARP discount for a room with a jetted tub, and I greatly enjoyed the tub, which worked just fine. And the staff were friendly. Those two things raised my rating to average, which otherwise would have been worse.
The bad news: There were lots of little things wrong with the room, which was just not up to the standard I had come to expect from La Quinta. With every flush of the toilet I had to raise the lid and untangle two floats, or otherwise the toilet would not stop running. The drain stopper in the sink would not stay closed, though I found I could sort of make it work by tightening the nut that is the usual suspect as much as I could with my fingers, then holding the stopper down with my finger until the sink was partly filled. A number of electrical outlets near the beds had been capped, due apparently to inoperability, and this left no outlets to which I could attach a CPAP machine. On the subject of outlets, there was a six-for-two expansion plug in the outlets near the desk, but I couldn't get my laptop to work on them until I figured out that the top bank of three outlets didn't work, but the bottom three did. And it was only after I had poured cereal on my milk at breakfast that I discovered that no spoons were available, and nobody from whom to request them anywhere in sight. (Ever eat cereal with a fork, then drink the milk from the bowl? In extremis, it works.)
Again, I did enjoy the price and the tub, but I'm afraid I won't be back.
