I made a last minute decision to extend my Charleston, SC visit and needed to find a place within my budget. Hotels on the peninsula were either booked, or commanded Sunday night booking rates that were too steep for my weekend travel budget. I looked at reviews and decided to give La Quinta a try.
Let me say that perhaps I’m sort of a room snob. Certainly I like thing clean, and mostly it was. My impression at the La Quinta is that the whole hotel seemed to be a bit frayed around the edges. The walls could use some paint. The bathtub non-skid surface was no longer white but a shade of gray. When I went to get some ice, I found that there were three large bags of garbage sitting near the ice machine. In that I was checking in close to 5:30, I was surprised they hadn’t been hauled away by housekeeping staff earlier in the day.
Breakfast the next morning gets a C minus. Perhaps some might consider the waffles you can make for yourself and assorted pastries the way to start the day, I don’t. I believe there may have been a few hardboiled eggs and containers of yogurt, but overall, sugar and carbohydrates reigned. Admittedly, though, the coffee was good.
I was disappointed that staff did nothing to keep the breakfast area clean. Hotel guests were very good about clearing their tables, but no one came through the area to wipe crumbs, spilled coffee or sugar from the tables.
Would I stay here again? In a pinch – but it wouldn’t be my first choice. I’d probably search to see what else I could find.
