“Filthy but passable”
Reviewed November 17, 2006

Traveling through Oklahoma, we stopped at a rest area and got a coupon book. This La Quinta Inn was offering rooms for $49, and having found another La Quinta in our travels to be decent, we decided to take the plunge and stop here for the night.

Finding the motel is no easy task, as it is hidden behind another motel and a restaurant which lie opposite the off-ramp. We'll let you enjoy the vision quest for the front entrance; consider it part of the experience that is about to unfold.

The harried desk clerk was the only one on duty and was clueless about how the wi-fi worked. Understaffing seems to be a La Quinta trademark but we ultimately got into our room with little trouble.

On the plus side, the room was reasonably spacious, with a king bed, a desk/table and a lounge chair. The sink and vanity were located in a little alcove separate from the toilet and shower. The TV got a limited number of channels but the selection was OK for one night.

The big problem was the filth and grime that we found everywhere. This was the sort of thing that builds up over time, that comes from not even pretending to clean . There was a condom wrapper on one side of the bed and a fair array of garbage under the lounge chair. There were yellow stains on the toilet, the handle of the hair dryer and the back of the door were covered with black fingerprints, the ice bucket was encrusted with crud and no liner was supplied for it, nor did the desk clerk have any. This was the sort of place where we pulled back the covers of the bed with apprehension, wondering if the linens had actually been changed.

The continental breakfast featured a lot of things wrapped in cellophane and loaded with trans fats but was acceptable enough.

Recommended for those with a coupon who don't care about filth. We would have hated to pay the rack rate for this joint; this La Quinta is an example of where poor housekeeping deters repeat customers. Had it been reasonably clean, we would have considered it again when next in the area.

  • Liked — Comfortable room layout
  • Disliked — Filthy, bottom-of-the-barrel housekeeping
  • Tips/Secrets — Get a coupon book at the rest area. Why pay more for grime than you have to?
