"Stay away!! Horrible."
Reviewed Aug 28, 2014

Horrible. Used to stay here while visiting parent in nearby Nursing Home. This place has turned into a latrine since my last stay. Parking lot being mostly empty when I arrived at 6pm should've warned me away. Receptionist "Ruby" acted very strange. Couldn't find my reservation after I spelled it for her twice. Then suddenly saw it right on the desktop when I spelled it a third time. Offered no directions to my room, no explanation of lobby breakfast, nothing - just told me not to park
at the bar in the lot next door (?) Finally found room (on opposite end of motel from bar - thus, why would I park my car at the bar?)
Literally green mold was dripping from the balcony of the room above mine. Opened door and was overwhelmed by funky, musty, MOLDY odor. Rug was filthy. Bathroom seat looked like there were urine stains on it. Un-vaccumed dirt and crud in every corner. Mosquitoes buzzing in the room. Shall I go on? The sound of the freeway right outside my window was nerve-wracking. Finally someone started sawing, loudly, in the room next door. I called the desk and "Ruby" at first couldn't explain the sawing, wasn't sure if the room was even rented, then suddenly announced, "Oh yeah, they're working on the mold in there!" Tired and dazed I sat in a chair for 15 minutes debating if this was worth putting up with for even one night. My throat got scratchy from breathing the mold and my head was pounding. I, of course, left. Called the front desk, said I was leaving and "Ruby" answered, "OK honey, I'm busy checking someone in. "(!) I called 800 La Quinta - no one in reservations could help me. Said I'd need to talk to receptionist "Ruby". Called back to Corpus location again and got directed back to 800 la Quinta again!! Talk about a runaround.
I'm done with La Quinta. LOUSY room, LOUSY Customer Service, LOUSY
receptionist - never again. Called my credit card and had them deny the charge. STAY AWAY!! You've been warned!
Carpet sticky, bathroom floor had hair. Tub backed up during shower, plunger provided next to toilet. Soap is only ammenity offered. We were forced to open door and let in hot humid air because room so strongly smelled of bleach. Breakfast skimpy. Day two, employee pressure washing upstairs balcony sprayed our vehicle with dirty water and debris. Cassandra at checkout didn't even bother to ask how our stay was. From other travel site reviews, guess she knew better than to ask. Simply awful.
Arrived to a filthy check in area. It looked as if a pee wee soccer team just finished a game and trampled through the lobby while dropping french fries. I knew there was trouble when a man behind me complained that his room was not clean and the clerk said there were no rooms available and her cleaning team had left for the day. She offered to call other propertes for him. I arrived to my room and while the indoor cosmetics looked ok (new linens, carpet, drapes), the room smelled like mold and wet dog. When I entered the bathroom all I saw was filth. The door had mold, shower head did not appear to have been cleaned in years, drain was disconnected and the sink was disgusting. If it were not for a city wide sold out situation due to college move in day we would have immediately left the property. With no other choice we picked up cleaning supplies from Walmart and cleaned the room. It's probably the cleanest its been since day one. The second night our truck was broken in to and when I went to the front desk the clerk did not appear shocked. She reached down pulled out a form and advised me that their risk management would contact me within 48 hours.
This hotel should be removed from the brand. Expensive for the cleanliness, smoking in rooms, breakfast, etc. This should be a $49 hotel and then it would match the level of quality and cleanliness delivered.
Room/carpet/restroom very dirty, worn, mildew. Ceiling stained and texture/paint falling off from leaks. I travel a lot and have stayed in MANY hotels but this is one of the worst I've seen. Ok place if you're on a fishing trip perhaps...but nowhere to stay if you want to feel clean when you leave.
