First off, the room was a terrific deal--I got it on Hotwire and when I found what I'd got, and for the price, I felt like I'd won one of those scratch-and-win thingies. The room was spacious and clean, the staff friendly and accommodating--e.g., since the lot wasn't very full, the desk staff gave us permission to park in it after our check-out time. Since I was mostly interested in a clean, secure (affordable!!!!) room with a minimum of hassles, I was happy with La Quinta. An unexpected benefit: the area of the beach directly east (2 blocks) from La Quinta was nice--not too crowded or trashed up or rowdy. The following is all nitpicking. I realize it adds up, but overall the experience was positive and I'd stay there again. Okay, here come the nitpicks. Some of the "accommodations" were kind of a joke, though not a joke I had much of a problem with. For example, the "arcade" was a dinky row of machines lined up opposite the washing machines in a small nook off the main hall. No problem for me, since I don't play those games anyway (nor was anyone else). Other slightly more annoying drawbacks: The room had a fridge, but the fridge didn't work. Also the room had an Amana climate control thing, but that didn't work either. The AC came on every now and then, but unrelated to whatever we did to the Amana controls--e.g., setting the temp, or selecting a fan mode of "auto" or "low" or "high" was unrelated to what the AC did. I figured the AC was maybe centrally controlled and the Amana thing, I don't know, a large decorative item of some sort. The pillows were like rocks, but the bed was comfortable enough. There were plenty of lamps; that was nice, since it allowed one person to read in bed with a lamp on the side away from the person who was snoring. The toilet seat had the gap in the front--yech. What's the point of guys putting the seat up and down when the seat has a gap in it, so when it's put down and sat on, your thighs get to soak up all the drips on the porcelain? And who has skinny enough thighs or sits spreadeagle enough that their thighs don't land in the drips? An anorexic gymnast with no pants on, maybe. Everyone else gets to sit in pee. Speaking of clean, they give you a tiny little shampoo/conditioner that doesn't look like enough for 2 people, and when I asked the housekeeping person in the hall for another, she said she'd take care of it when she did the room. She didn't. We made do. If we were younger and had more hair between us, I'd want to bring my own shampoo supplies. They serve continental breakfast from 6 a.m. to 9 a.m. only. Too early! And contrary to what I read before I got there, they do not have coffee available on the premises except during that time. They do have a coffee maker in the room, and there's a Harris Teeter behind the hotel that sells coffee packs that go in the coffee maker, if you want more than the one caffeinated pack they give you per day.
