I am someone who travels a lot and my company has a corporate account with La Quinta, so I have seen my fair share of "new" sheets and showers. First of all the parking situation is a joke, maybe 7 places to park at this hole in the wall, but all is not lost you can park your rental vehicle on the road where you can get possibly get shanked or rather someone siphon fuel out of my tank and take a dump in the back of my truck (THIS HAPPENED!). Now most people would be off-put by this but, most of the time I can deal with even the most appalling things. The room really wasn't as bad as I thought it was going to be nice size, relatively clean yeah... well lets go buy some water or hell some beer or food to keep in the fridge, I wouldn't it couldn't anything cooler than room temperature... fine. I will just take a shower and relax, nope the handle to adjust the water temperature came right off.... its ok guys I got this, yeah I fixed it don't worry about it. You know what? I am going to watch some TV, despite all the crap you can't mess up TV right? Wrong... I read on the main site, "...over 30 HD channels..." hm that's a bit high don't ya think? Well there is a total of 29 non HD channels but who is going to split hairs? Well I am because by my count there were 3 channels that were either blank or displayed the cable company's logo, not a single HD channel (No Big Deal), there were 3 channels that were on there twice, NO SPORTS!!, and I think there are about 5 channels that are like watching the dirty channels on cable that you didn't get but you could just make out the picture and the sound. Ugh! Ok, you know what? I prepare for this kind of thing cue the HDMI cable and my laptop well here we go, we have plug ins boom just like that I have a dvd/Blu-ray player well you only have so many movies that redbox can offer, so I bring in the big guns... Netflix on the way!! Well, for the people who don't have Netflix it requires an internet connection, so we connect to the internet which is just a few clicks away. Hey! They have wifi, cool go and get the password from downstairs (LQ1:laquinta6208) just saving you the trip. Alright now we are connected ill check Facebook before I watch this movie... it took 3 minutes to load that page ok, now I will watch this movie well long story short the internet is not fast enough to stream a movie. So, at this point you have almost lost all hope, I just want to listen to some music but not my music I want to stream some music from iheartradio, or anywhere for that matter, well unless you want to listen to just 5 seconds of music with 20 second pause then you will be upset. FINE!! I will go do stuff outside of the hotel to fill my time, I come back to sketchy-central and now I walk to the hotel, on a side note this hotel has 4 ways to enter/exit the hotel your card works at one of them, one is the main entrance and the other two are clearly marked that they are out of order.... FOR THE PAST 4 MONTHS!!!!! Its time to go to bed now today is over with, now I am by no means a tall man or for that matter a short man, I am 5'10" and my feet hang off the end of this "king sized bed"... it makes me feel taller but come on. Now that you are quietly in bed you think that nothing else can go wrong, but you are wrong indeed, about once a week now there is domestic violence or some sort of argument that everyone else around that room gets to share with the people it is happening to. New day now that you got your nice sleep, usually in my experience the housekeeping will usually start around 9-10 to clean the rooms and finish by 1pm at the max... I have witnessed these housekeeping people finishing as late as 5pm, and many times have found them hanging out in the rooms that they are cleaning just as I was passing by. Elevator was out for about a week twice now (I take the stairs regardless). I haven't eaten the breakfast here but, if its anything like any other breakfast I have eaten at any other hotel its filling... but just never what you want. I hope this painted a vivid picture of what you will experience here. I wouldn't recommend staying here unless you absolutely HAVE to.
