"Some good, some bad"
2 of 5 stars Reviewed Aug 14, 2014
wanderingk9s | Minneapolis, Minnesota
I have stayed in many LQ's because I travel with my dog. Unfortunately this hotel was not one of the good hotels, but certainly was adequate. The front desk person was distant and really didn't care about checking me in, or even smiling. At least he was efficient and it only took a couple minutes to check in. They were doing some construction in the front in the parking lot, so of course it was dirty. The door had no lock on it, so wide open to anyone that wasn't staying there. The hotel is very outdated and was some other brand as the layout isn't like the lq's. Room needed some good vacuuming, especially around the corners and edging (the whole hotel needed that (not to manager, get some edging tools for vacuums)) Food was left in fridge that had gone bad, gross. The good, it is very very quiet. My room faced that back and it didn't have spot lights coming in, it was nice. So the darkness at night was also a big plus for some nice sleep. The AC was okay but I had the windows open with a nice breeze coming in. The location is great, right off the highway. So overall for a good nights sleep and quick trip is was great. It would be kind of a depressing place to stay there for any extended stays for me. Dingy and outdated. It was good for a one night stay.

"OK, but not to my La Quinta expectations"
3 of 5 stars Reviewed Aug 12, 2014
tc4real | Charlotte, North Carolina
I've been very impressed with La Quinta as a very nice budget hotel. Alas, this unit was a disappointment. We checked in late, 11-ish, and had to call out for someone to check us in. While pleasant enough, the young man who checked us in was wearing a t-shirt (not a 'style' t-shirt, just a 'band' t-shirt) and jeans. Room was tired and stale, and while there was a refrigerator, sink, microwave and small kitchen area, the cabinets looked to be homemade. The lighting in the room was oddly placed and dim. None of this was a deal breaker, and we slept well, but it's time for a refresh.

"Worst Bed In America"
2 of 5 stars Reviewed Aug 12, 2014
Gerald P | Richmond, United States
All hotel features fine but the bed. Staff was friendly, hotel was clean, however it was a terrible mattress. The covers must have been old and shrunk because only sat on top of mattress. Any movement at all and your sleeping directly on the mattress. My traveling companion had a similar experience.

"Needs updating"
3 of 5 stars Reviewed Jul 31, 2014
tr6922 | Georgetown,TX.
general updating is needed, carpets are dirty, no printer available to print boarding pass, breakfast was good, local McDonald's is open 24-7. (drive thru) Parking is limited by the amount of trucks. I would not recommend this Hotel for familes.

"won't be staying there anymore"
3 of 5 stars Reviewed Jul 22, 2014
waterviews2014 | Plymouth, Massachusetts
we have stayed at la quinta a few times. once a few years back in St Augustine, Fl. and we were pleased with the room, rate staff and so on. This year we stayed at a La Quinta in Florence, SC and on the way back in Richmond, Va. Both locations were a huge disappointment from our St Augustine experience. Perhaps it is because a few years have passed, or perhaps ownership changed? This trip both hotels were not that clean, although the sheets are white (which I appreciate) and they were certainly clean. The Richmond location had comfortable beds unlike the Florence location. The rug in Richmond was old and nasty and one wants to make sure they keep shoes or slippers on. Both locations had pleasant staff which is a plus. We had noise problems at both locations, in Florence we were near the laundry room and people were talking in the wee hours of the morning for some time, at the Richmond location people were outside in the parking lot talking at strange hours and woke us up. We have a dog so that is the primary and actually only reason for staying at La Quinta and they don't charge extra...although next trip I will book another hotel as for me it really isn't any bargain if we are unhappy with the place we are staying and paying the pet fee elsewhere where we will have a good night sleep it is worth it.
