“Trolley stop is a plus!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 18, 2013

I appreciate all La Quinta hotels for their rooms, service, and free breakfast. This one also had a trolley stop right in front of the hotel! Fare was $1.20 each way ($4 for a daily pass), and the trolley drivers were extremely helpful regarding restaurants, attractions, and stops. Hotel staff members were very helpful as well. I do wish they could sell the $4 pass as we would have to go to a less convenient spot for that. We did not expect to have a living area as well as the two beds, so that was a treat. Again, I appreciate the staff. Although it was too cold to swim and the pool was closed, it was extremely clean. There are no restaurants near the hotel, so plan to eat elsewhere, preferably the Riverwalk.

Nice well informed staff gave us info on trolley hours and route for site seeing which is better than paying for parking. The breakfast was not up to La Quinta standards it had eggs but were boiled and had no bacon/sausage/ biscuits. The location and staff are great when something was not working they fixed it immediately. The room was large and clean. Hotel has on site laundry room/business center. I would stay there again considering the staff did what they could to make it a pleasant stay.

Room Tip: bring your own snack than pay hotel prices

No doubt this centrally located LQ gets hard use in a convention and tourism epicenter like SA. The first time we stayed here it was impressive for its fantastic price and overall good condition. Last stay, it was looking a little worse for the wear. Still a great bargain and a super location for those who like to go downtown but also be near King William and South Town/hipster areas, but I would hesitate to rec it any longer to anyone who's fussy about appearances.

This a very nice La quinta the excutive king suite is large. The breakfast is standard la Quinta ok but nothing special. The room is motel clean and staff are very nice. No phone book in room so quests can make dinner reservation so I went down stairs and was told we dont have any and we took them out of the rooms and was offerd a dominoes delivery menu it would be nice if quests had a phone book to call a quality resturants to make reservation or take out or what ever. This La quinta is nicely located downtown and safe, a little to the exspensive side for a la Quinta but its downtown. We would stay again.
