"Avoid this mess!"

We booked a room here on our way to Ft Lauderdale. It was last minute, booked it around midnight and arrived at 1:00 am. OMG! If we had not been exhausted, we would have left. The carpet was so nasty, I wouldn't take my shoes off until I was in the bed. The shower was loaded with mildew. The receptionist told us they would be doing a remodel soon....well, they should have started a couple of years ago by the looks of it. We travel a good deal across the interstates and one of our "go-to's" is the La Quinta because we travel with a small dog. This is the first time I have been disappointed. Even the breakfast was disconnected and below par. It's a shame the La Quinta name has to be associated with this mess.
First let me say that we like La Quinta's. This one is not one of the better ones we have seen. The front desk staff seemed very inattentive to everyone and attached to talking on the phone. The address speaks for the lay out - Terrace. We found it challenging to get our luggage to the 2nd floor for the rear building. There seemed to be a lot of transient work crews staying here. The room was filthy and needed a lot of touching up. The grounds seemed dark and neglected. Breakfast was below average. However, we stayed at another LQ before this one and their breakfast also seemed to be less than what it used to be. For our purposes - sleeping & bathing one night en route to another place - it was ok. Would not stay again w/out renovations.
This hotel is excellent for courteous service and for allowing pets. Had a great experience and my room was clean and readily available (requested first floor due to health reasons and was given one) My stay was very satisfying and breakfast was more than sufficient. ,
Spent two nights here recently, Feb 22014. Rooms are clean, desk responsive. Walks are filthy. Not much in the way of breakfast choices. Wi-Fi kept going out which was annoying. For $62 a night it was fine but not worth much more in price.
Hotel rooms are older and in need of remodeling. Tub was rusty and still had signs of the mat that had been there. Room was clean and staff was friendly. Location has restaraunts and large mall across the street.
