“Old and tired”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 5, 2012

This hotel had to have been built back in the early 70's. Unfortunately, it does not appear that any remodeling has been done to this place since the original construction. The entire place just looked and felt old and tired. Aside from everything looking worn, I will say the room appeared clean and housekeeping did a great job during my stay. The room came with a mini fridge and microwave. The fridge kept my drinks cool (not cold) and the microwave was out of service with an E-9 error the entire week. It is amazing how much they can charge a night for rooms in this condition. Unfortunately, there are not many available options in Midland due to the recent old boom and all the contractors flooding into the area.

Midland, Texas is experienced another boom because of the high oil prices. This La Quinta along with many other Midland motels are taking advantage of the situation with high prices and a poorly maintained motel. I am a bit shocked that La Quinta still allows this motel to be branded under their name with the terrible conditions here.

This motel will not survive under the current management when the oil boom is over.

The good side was that my room was very clean and everything worked well.

The bad side

Pool walls covered in mustard algae. Disgusting!!!! All outside trash cans overflowing with trash on sidewalks. Parking lot never cleaned. Several of the staircases have police tape blocking their use because they are not safe to use.
Upon check in it took the clerk between 10 and 15 minutes to check the person arriving before me into a room. (she was having difficulty finding him a king size smoking room, finally gave him a non smoking room and told him it would be ok to smoke in it because she thought someone had smoked in it before) The redeeming thing she did was apologize to me for having to wait so long. That did help me give this motel a better evaluation.
The breakfast would have been acceptable if they had not run out of food. The waffle batter dispenser ran out and there was still 45 minutes left in the service.

Customers will remember their experience here and avoid this motel in the future. Midland has had booms and busts relating to the oil business. This dump will never survive a "bust". The current owners must be laughing all the way to the bank with the ridiculous rates they are charging and not maintaining this property.
Avoid Midland by stopping 100 miles away where the prices are less than half and the properties are being maintained.

Room Tip: I stayed in room 104 (king non smoking). I have no complaint on this room. Clean and everything wo...

The pool is disgusting. Poor kids wouldn't even touch pool. General hotel looks run down, unkept. Definitely regretting this one. I've stayed at La Quinta's before but this is more like a cheap dirty motel except it wasn't that cheap. I'm very disappointed. Hoping that we can change hotels.

Let's start with Safety:
I agree with rdwarrior_12, stair case is taped off with broken steps missing. Huge safety concern if a fire related issue was to occur. Hotel is not taking action to fix this safety hazard. Would recommend not staying on second floor.

Cleaning:
Hotel is not clean on the outside or inside. House keepers do a good job tiding up the room. There is only one so much can do to maintain a room due to worn out dressers, chairs, bed, bathroom, etc. Only item up-to-date is the LCD screen TV.

Maintenance:
My hotel room door does not open, I have to forcefully open and close the door. In the bathroom the tub is constantly running. Last but not least, only half of my lights work in the hotel room.

Overall:
I really don't feel like this hotel is worth $170+ a night to stay here. They should have updated their rooms before they started charging this much due to the oil boom in Midland/Odessa Texas. If they are charging $170+ a night they should take a portion of that money and repair the stair case mentioned about in the "Safety" report. I really feel like this hotel is in it for the money and not for it's customers. I will ONLY stay here again if this is the ONLY La Quinta I can get a room at. Thanks for reading my report, hope it helps out.

Room Tip: Try to get rooms on the first floor closet to the lobby.

Lots of bagged trash stored under the stairs and in the hallways.

Two set of stair cases "roped off" with tape due to steps broken in half or missing step- no concrete rebar visible. Does not look llke action is being taken to address these issues.

This is a safety hazard in the event that an evacuation is required due to fire, etc.
