"Solid place to stay in Garden City"
Reviewed Jul 18, 2014

The La Quinta Inn Garden City is a solid place to stay. The rooms show a little wear and tear, such as dark area in the mirrors where the silvering is gone, for example. But the rooms are clean, the bedding is clean, and the staff is very friendly and helpful.
I had two issues. One, the tub wasn't draining well. They fixed that promptly, promptly meaning the next day. Then the through wall heater wasn't heating. Yes I realize it was summer but nights can be cool. This they never fixed. Since it wasn't winter I am not complaining too much.
They brought a mini fridge right away when I asked. It didn't get all that cold but it did the trick. When I asked for a microwave later they came right away. Also if I asked the staff for extra coffee pods or whatever they promptly and cheerfully gave me what I wanted.
The location is just a five minute drive from a Target, Walmart, and other stores. Very convenient actually. I also used the treadmill and the workout room is quite adequate. I did not eat breakfast there but it looked ok.
The wireless internet was quite good. I was able to transfer an episode of 24 from my home computer to the hotel pretty quickly, AND I was able to stream an episode of True Blood. I once stayed at a WAY expensive Sheraton and they wanted $20 a day for internet. Sheraton should should be ashamed compared to this La Quinta.
I also appreciated the fact that there was no porn on the TV, just family friendly channels. Would be nice if they had Discovery or History channel though.
I paid about $155/night. This is about par for the area. If you need to stay in this area, I would not hesitate to recommend this La Quinta.
Upon checking in I was told that there were no rooms ready (it was 4PM) and that they were waiting for towels and sheets to come back washed and dried from another hotel. Finally they found me a room on the first floor. I didn't mind and finished checking in. The hotel happened to be very noisy that evening and the room was not quiet at all. I was up and checked out at 6:30 the next morning. The young man at the front counter said the computer was down and couldn't print my receipt. He took my email address and of course I have not received a receipt. I definitely will be looking elsewhere when I need to stay in the area next time.
I thought the stay was good but should have included more for the price. They should have had a map of the area and venues in the immediate area. They ran out of items in the breakfast which was somewhat limited as well. The hotel was clean and well kept, but could have offered more for the money.
Usually I like La Quinta hotels, but I was very disappointed with my visit to this one. I booked a non-smoking room and they gave me a smoking room. When I went to the front desk to ask for another room, there were 4 other people complaining about the same thing and the staff was rude to all of us and not very helpful (it took a lot of arguing for them to give us non-smoking rooms). The TV in the room only had 4 working channels (it said the others were unavailable). The room was clean and it was spacious, but the bed was not very comfortable. The bathroom was clean as well, but the pressure in the shower was not good enough and the water did not drain properly (by the end of my shower I was standing in water up to my ankles).
I was not expecting a fancy stay with great amenities (after all it is a La Quinta), but I have stayed in hotels at this price range that are much better (e.g., more comfortable rooms, better bathrooms, nicer facilities and more friendly/helpful staff). Overall, I would not recommend this hotel.
Stayed at another hotel and I guess this location may be having financial issues but the manager from the previous hotel I was staying at put in a bad guest comment about me. When I began looking for the laundry facilities it was about 12:30 I went back to the front desk where the manager refused to extend my stay. While he's allowed to do this he wouldn't give me an reason and proceeded to shout and yell than run down a list of bad guests he has. I called customer service about the manager and obviously that's a waste of time. This was my first time ever being in a la quinta hotel and it will for sure be the last time.
