"Take the Good with the Bad"
3 of 5 stars Reviewed Sep 14, 2014
Fridakat | San Antonio, Texas
First off, the pros: Close to beach and a decent view from the balcony room. Beach area is relatively clean and easy to access. Bar and grill is good--drinks are reasonable and service is good. Food from the Hilton room service seemed slightly above average and is a good "go to" option when you don't feel like running out for food. At $4 for room service, it can be a bargain when you choose one of the specials. Now, for the cons: The balcony with the large king room is super small. Barely enough room to turn around. The balcony chairs are super uncomfortable. Most of the balcony was taken up by the air conditioner exhaust vents which were blowing out super-heated air 24x7. The balcony was not really usable as intended and was not worth paying extra for. The AC in our room was not working well and the whole entire 2nd floor was hot, humid, and smelled of mold. Most of the building seemed stuffy, except of course, the front desk area. While it's great that the hotel is non-smoking, they allow smoking right outside the entrance and in the pool/deck area. Lots of smokers during our visit and butts galore all around the outdoor seating area. One night, a large group of people took over the outdoor area for hours--they were loud and obnoxious. Lots of minor issues like dirty faucets/broken drain fixtures, mold in bathroom, missing wood on baseboards, and dingy carpet. The breakfast isn't served until 7 AM which is not good if you're trying to get an early start. Every morning, the construction guys (they were working on the hotel) muscled their way into the breakfast room like vultures and made themselves several plates before anyone else could get to it. One morning, seven of them were lined up at the breakfast room door at 6:45. Lots of noise from other rooms like barking dogs and loud kids. The room next to us had a smoker so it took them a while to clean it. Seems like there are management issues. Could be a nicer place with some attention to detail on LQ's part.

"great view from our balcony"
4 of 5 stars Reviewed Sep 11, 2014

We purposely chose this hotel for the beachfront views, and that did not disappoint. We were able to take the elevator down, walk past the pool and voila! we were on the beach. I will begin with the negatives first. Yes, the halls are very humid (for some reason, the front of the hotel is cooler than the rear). The one thing we found odd was the narrowness of the room. The bed came so close to the dresser that we could not both pass by at the same time, but had to take turns. Also, we found that if we kept the curtains closed in the morning when we were gone, the room stayed cooler and we could open them up in the afternoon and evening and enjoy the great ocean views. For some reason, there was no lamp on the work desk. If we had had to do actual work while there, we would have asked for one. On the positive side, the breakfast was well supplied and offered made to order omelets, a step up for LQ. But the main thing is the view. That will bring us back again. One note of caution: we purposely planned our trip for after Labor Day, when crowds are not such a factor. If we had gone in the middle of the summer, my review may have been different. We are looking forward to returning.

We stayed during the 2014 Labor Day Holiday weekend. Had out of town family & friends, from KY, here visiting. We have stayed @ this LaQuinta 2 times now and love the pool, patio bar area. Staff is quick & friendly!

"can do better for price"

I dont usually write negative reviews as I like to give the benefif of the doubt and claim maybe just isolated incidents. However, pictures of this hotel are really deceiving. The pool is much smaller than it appears, as is the entire hotel. Very narrow. Hallways muggy and humid. 1 elevator. Walls thin. Noisy everywhere, especially being right next to Claytons bar. I dont plan to stay again. For 200 plus a night, no thanks. I did enjoy the quick access to beach along with the breakfast, so kuddos for that.

"Great beach hotel"
4 of 5 stars Reviewed Sep 7, 2014
eoneillaz | San Antonio, Texas United States
This is right on the beach and next to Clayton's Beach Bar. The rooms are nice. We spent a few days there to use the beach. The Pool bar has decent food considering the location and the prices are fair. The bar is rarely ever busy, which is nice compared to Clayton's which can get super busy on touristy days. The prices for drinks are better too. The pool is small, especially compared to the Hilton next door. It was not an issue for me but is for some. This hotel allows for dogs so be prepared to see/hear them at times.
