This review will be short and sweet. We are budget-conscious travelers and have stayed in many La Quinta Inns. We would return to nearly every one but maybe not this one. Don't get me wrong, the property was clean and well-maintained, the breakfast assortment a bit more varied than usual and the service was friendly. The Internet worked fine and the price was definitely right. :-)
Here's where I would scratch my head.
First, as you go town the hall to your room there are stairs at two places in the hall. There are ramps for your roller bags but there are two problems:
First, the ramps are only wide enough for the bag so you're either going to deal with the awkwardness of your bag on the ramp and you on the stairs or you're going to lift and carry the bag up/down the stairs. I didn't count but I think there were five or six stairs at each of the stairways.
Second, it's very low clearance at the stairs. i'm 6'1" and I had to duck when using the stairs and most rooms require negotiating at least one flight of these hall stairs.
The hotel is on a slope so I'm guessing that is why they used this stair configuration but it is an awkward choice.
The other item is the huge (and I mean huge) pool atrium. Nearly all the rooms on the same side of the property as the pool have a window that faces the atrium and that would be at least half the rooms. If guests are horsing around in the pool, you will definitely hear them and it could interfere with your sleep. If this matters to you, specify a room on the other side of the property.
