I agree with some of the other reviews, this property is not up to La Quinta standards. La Quinta should remove this from their chain.
To start with, we reserved a room with 2 queen beds (my husband uses a cpap) with a microwave and fridge. We requested a room on the top floor and away from the pool.
What we got was a room with one bed, no amenities and it was facing the pool
Next, the (get THIS) PUNCH CARD KEYS didn't work, so the maintenance man to rekeying it, which he said he had just done that morning.
Also this was not an "Inn"' it is a "motel". The room doors are on the outside.
Because the rates were significantly lower than the other nearest La Quinta, it attracted the type of people who allow their children to run around the pool, screaming and shouting. I can understand this during the day, but at 9:30 at night?
The pool area was nicely landscaped, but everywhere else there was trash and old spill stains. This includes the parking lot. And an old junker was parked in front of the doors for our entire stay.
There was mold in the shower and an anti-slip pad covered years of grime in the tub.
But the worst part was the bed. We both woke after a rough night of noisy neighbors and tossing and turning with raging backaches.
Our stay was supposed to be 2 nights but we checked out in the morning and got reservations at the nearby (and new) Hampton Inn. We told the Hampton Inn clerk that we were La Quinta refugees. That got a chuckle!
Don't waste you money. If this location is were you need to stay, for a little bit more you can stay at the Hampton Inn on Wilmot, across from the Texas Roadhouse (good eatin').
