“In serious need of renovations”
Reviewed January 29, 2013

Stayed one night and was not impressed by this property. Our king room was small with only one desk chair to sit on. The carpeting throughout the hotel was stained including that in our room. While the bathroom was clean, the enamel in the tub was peeling. The elevator worked, but again it had seen better days. Was disappointed in this particlar LaQuinta property. On the plus side, the staff were very friendly. I wouldn't stay here again unless updates are completed.

I apologize for the issues you encountered while staying with us. We are under renovation and have completed one and one half floors. I know that doesn't help with your stay, but we are doing a lot of wonderful changes to our guest rooms. I do hope you will stay with us again and I know that you will have a much better stay. Please call me and I will personally book your reservation and put you into one of our renovated rooms and I offer you a discount for your next stay.

Sorry, I cannot agree with a couple of recent reviews. As of January, 2013, this place is old and nasty. When I pulled into the parking lot, guys were hoisting mattresses out of a container. I asked the desk clerk for one of the renovated rooms and he said, "you don't want that, none of them are ready yet". Instead he put me in a small room with filthy carpet, old, dinged furniture, and intermittent internet.

There was a guy sitting in a Mercedes with the lights on near the entrance when I came in and an hour later, he was still there. I called the front desk to see if they had a safe I could put a knapsack of electronic gear in and he said no. I mentioned my concern about the Mercedes and he said an attractive, well dressed woman came out of the hotel and got into that car. Sure enough, it was gone. Very odd.

When I got back from dinner, I couldn't send email and there was a party going on in the next room with three dudes and girl. I could hear the rap music and their voices as if I was sitting with them. After insisting he was getting "four bars" on his phone, the desk guy reset the Internet anyway and I managed to get three emails out before it seized again. At 10:30 pm, the room phone rang while I was in the bathroom. By the time I got to it, it had stopped. I called down to the desk and asked what they wanted. A woman answered and said, "I didn't call you," and hung up. I called back to say she shouldn't have hung up on me because I had something else to discuss but she hung up again before I could finish the sentence. I called back down and the phone rang for about three minutes before the guy picked up. I asked what was going on. He said they were getting a lot of calls (at 10:30?) and I told him the party next door was getting louder and I wasn't going to be able to sleep. He said he would "call security" but no one ever showed up. I got my earplugs and made the best of it.

That was enough for me. I was booked for two nights so I asked if I could cancel the second night. He said, "No, I don't think so". I asked him to repeat himself and he said, "Uh, well, you can't -- unless you want to." At this point I started looking around for the reality show hidden cameras but there weren't any.

Paper thin walls, black tarry marks on all the carpets, dings and gouges in old furniture and elevators, a subtle and constant smell of stinky feet masked by sweet antiseptic deodorizer, and all in a dilapidated area with an adult book store at the corner - this place is not professional and not up to La Quinta standards. You may have to stay further from downtown, but there are alternatives a few miles further out along the highway that are vastly better.

Room Tip: Try the Best Western Plus Arbour Inn just outside of town.

Not originally a La Quinta, they are redoing the hotel from the top floor to the bottom. The staff was very kind and helpful. Even the request for only one key and extra coffee for the room, was met with the wish to please a guest. I felt totally at home, even though I had a room that was not redone. I can't wait to go back and see the improvements.

Room Tip: Third floor, far end had no heavy curtain to block the security light outside, but another room was...

We can't wait for you to see the upgrades. They are moving brand new bedding and furniture to the 5th floor that has already been renovated and we are starting on the 4th floor this week. I know that you will love our new look.

The hotel room was just as we expected. He were in one of the remodeled rooms and it was very nice and clean. We did not have any issues at all and would recommend this hotel to family and friends. The only suggestion would be to allow access to side doors for guests to make getting luggage to room a little easier depending on where your room is.

Thank you for the wonderful review. The side doors are to be unlocked from 8am until 8pm. I apologize that someone left them locked. I do hope you will visit us again in the future to see our new look.
