I chose La Quinta because of the advertising I'd seen; it looked affordable, clean, with "free high-speed internet". It was a cold night when I got to my room so the first thing I did was attempt to turn on the heat but the knob on the thermostat was broken and I had to play with it a bit to get it started (and turn it off). Being a business traveler, I got out my laptop and tried to get on the internet...with no luck. I called the front desk and reception said "yeah, its in & out"...just like I'll be as a customer, I thought to myself. Looking over the bathroom, I saw peeling paint, old caulking, and tattered baseboards. Walking in my stocking feet across the carpet, I stepped on something...I picked it up and found it was a piece of beef jerky...now I was less hungry than before. I wanted to charge my cell phone and laptop but had to unplug the refrigerator and microwave to accomplish this...no power outlets anywhere. The bed was very low to the ground; it felt like a "junior bed"...I'm not a junior anymore. The photo-copied and faded courtesy note from the manager said to call her at any time if I'm not completely satisfied..It was 10:30pm and I didn't have the heart to call her that late at night. Also,the furniture seemed cheap and well-used. I was planning on a 5 night stay but checked out the next morning. Upon checking out the receptionist quipped "How was your stay?". I listed only 2 things from the aforementioned list and she knocked off $15 from my bill. No more La Quinta for me....the next night I checked into a Hampton Inn and breathed a sigh of relief.
