Fair

Room was small; Motel is old but well maintained. Bathtub had what seemed to be paint smear stains on bottom; only one waste basket with no liner in room. Breakfast room was very small and cramped. food was very limited. Breakfast was to be from 6 AM to 9 AM however, we got there at 8:30 AM and the waffle irons were cleaned and cold which meant to me that they were shut down much earlier. When staff was questioned about this they said they begin cleaning earlier in anticipation of the 9 AM deadline. Seems to me that 6 AM breakfast should be the same as 8:30 or 8:45 AM breakfast. One morning plates and utensils were in short supply because they had no access to the storage room for whatever reason. We have stayed in La Quinta hotels before and all others were far superior to this one.

Wasn't even a 2star hotel

Pictures online are deceiving, the hotel is nasty. Room was supposed to be non-smoking, but cigarette smell very evident plus cigarette burns on nite stand. Refrigerator door seals were black/moldy. Bathroom floors & caulking were unsanitary. Hair/dirt indicating had not been cleaned prior to our arrival. Will never stay at a LaQuinta. Not expecting a 5* hotel but expected better.

Way over priced!!

Not worth the money! Our non smoking room smelled like cigarettes, the window curtain was ripped, we could see daylight through the closed door, the shower curtain had a cigarette burn hole in it, shower had mold, color crayon scribbled on the bathtub. The mini fridge had someone's food and drinks in it. We booked through a booking site and the hotel wouldn't let us cancel our reservations. Will never stay at this hotel again!

Won't stay there again...

Room smelled terrible - smoker's room. Asked for another room and it smelled bad too. Some electrical outlets not working, no washclothes "they are being washed". I've stayed at other LaQuinta's and they were nice - not this one.

Room was not cleaned

When we arrived at our room, it was not cleaned! I was horrified! Me and my boyfriend went down to the front desk and told him the situation. The manager did what he could do which was to upgrade our room by switching us to another clean room.

Great price for a night's stay!

Traveling and was in desperate need of a shower. Stopped to La Quinta and the stay was great! Man at lobby desk was friendly and funny. The beds were really nice, a little soft for my taste, but I prefer harder ones. Free internet was very fast and the continental breakfast was good- just basic breakfast food. Only complaint was the shower room: poor ventilation and streaks of previous condensation on the walls and doors. For someone that needed a shower, there was no problems there! Overall, good stay.

Dining tip: Short walk from hotel

Ruby Tuesday is right next door. Never been there but if looking for a quick bite they have great food at a good price and open late.
