"Ok for a quick stay."

First of all, it is a Motel and that being said, it is what it is and all that it is. A motel. The carpets were dirty and stinky. The bed was nice and clean. The staff was fun. The bathroom was okay at best.

This hotel exemplifies the notion of the good, the bad, and the ugly. The good is that it is relatively cheap. You probably won't get bedbugs which I suppose is good as well. The bad is that is kind of old. Maybe it was great 30 years ago, but it has not aged well. The ugly is that is is nasty. The bed looked alright but there were/are stains everywhere on the walls and floor, hairs in the bathroom and all kinds of stuff behind the dresser. I only looked behind the dresser because the tv didn't work and I wanted to see if it was plugged in or what. Also my air conditioner was wacky. Every hour, It would come on for about 5 minutes to great fanfare and then shut off with a loud clunk. Try sleeping with that all night? weird. Also everyone there smokes -- the staff, the breakfast server and everyone you pass going to your room. Philip Morris should invest in La Quinta for reals.

"Awesome experience!"

I travel quite a bit.... my check in was fast and quick. I viewed my room with a black light and found absolutely NO problems with body fluids anywhere. I check the door knobs, remote, lamps, curtain, floors, around the toilet. I even checked the corners of the bed for critters and found none. Yes, the carp was a bit dirty-- but no human staining. Plumbing was good. Lights were good. Flat screen tv worked perfectly. No issues with the microwave nor fridge. Bed comfy.

"Dirty bathroom, mould in tub, rooms in bad need of renovation"
2 of 5 stars Reviewed Aug 21, 2014

Checked in Friday, August 15 and checked out Sunday, August 17. Mold where tub meets the wall. What seemed to be human feces on wall behind bathroom door. Reported to desk clerk and wall was cleaned. Housekeeping did not refill facial tissue box and left one one in it. Whole room and bathroom was very dated and in need of renovation. Not at all up to usual La Quinta standards...and this was right near the Marshall Space Center so it's always busy.

"For the brand it was OK, but the brand lacks a lot in basics"

LQ inns had lost my business about 7 years back with a loyalty points shenanigan I considered to be deceptive and intentional. After raising the roof about it, they did give my points back which sort of satisfies me that what they were doing they know to be wrong. From that day until recently I had turned my back on the brand, and after several recent stays it?s not likely I?ll be earning free stays. I checked into this inn during the middle of the afternoon. The desk clerk was painfully slow, but managed to get the job done. Upon getting into my room, everything was in good order. The lights, television, towels, sheets and the like were in very good shape. We requested a non-smoking room, and there was no trace of smoking unlike many of these old inns where smoking has transitioned to non-smoking but left behind cigarette burns in the acrylic tub. Upon leaving in the morning, I was less than amused with the breakfast choices. LQ was the first brand to offer the guest a free, small breakfast of fruit and starches. They are right where they were in 1985 with their offering, even though others? in the industry very similar to them have made a concerted effort to offer free warm foods that will fill you up and leave you feeling satisfied. If you?re looking for sausage patties, fake scrambled eggs, or any seriousness you?ll need to choose an upscale brand. The most amazingly missing thing from this inn was any kind of a business center. I?m unsure if LQ was ever on board with this, but by today there are none I?ve seen. Even the lowest grade inns across the land will put out at least one old limping work station for which a guest can print out one boarding pass, or do a menial amount of work. It seems to me to be very inadequate to offer the guest nothing at all, and that would be a serious downgrade of my opinion of the brand since I began to travel in early adulthood on business in 1980. They were the first roadside brand to ditch food an beverage yet locate themselves as close as they could to a stand alone for profit restaurant. That idea has caught on, and if you can find a roadside inn with food and beverage still running, the restaurant portion is probably running at a loss. I really didn't like the food vendor in the parking lot agressively marketing his wares. His presence there did seem inappropraite for an inkeeper to allow on the property.
