pool was out of service and temp was the day temp ws 98

staff was very friendly. the insideof hotel was clean but needed repair. the outside needed to be spruced up. the outside sign had swear words written on it and no one cleaned it off. the parking lot was dirty. the whole outside appearance was that this was a rundown hotel.

I won't be back!!!!!!!!!!

Repeat of last years experience "reservations for wrong night, but the staff took care of it. Rms 150 and 151. Bathroom in 150 is an abomination...big black holes in several areas of bathtub,,,grouting and tile mastic very-very bad and unsightly. Late & loud party outside of 151 prevented sleep 10-11 pm. Ask for wakeup call for Rm 150 at 4 am....did not call and result was late reporting for Tour de Tucson Sporting Event. 151 did get called about 15 min late. Overall maintenance of building-doors-halls says this is a skid row "DUMP"

Hotel was eh...service from front desk...was great!

The lady at the front desk was great! We asked to be moved to a bigger room with a microwave and fridge and she was on it, even came up to our room to give us the key! The room was bigger, however in between the fridge and the wall, was an old, dirty, frozen dinner tray...totally visable and seemed like it had been there for months! Remote control didnt work, front desk gal went out of her way to come and leave us new batteries...although they STILL didnt work. Hallways REEKED of someone smoking pot too! We will NOT be staying there again....front desk gal...you need to find another job at a much better hotel...you would really benefit from it! Thank you for making our stay a little better!

Hotel is Dated and Worn

If location and price work for you then okay stay (my meeting was just down street and I have a tight budget). In depressed neighborhood off freeway with no local restaraut choices. Room was dated with wall patched that were not textured or painted to match walls (and, other signs of poor workamnship). TV dated with poor picture and TV guide not current with existing channels. Lack of pride in ownership.

A Parent visit on Broadway

The Staff was friendly and responsive to our needs. The room was clean and adequate. The hotel is close to UofA in what I would call the middle of the City North to South, on I-10. We had a small problem with the original room and were moved to another room immediately that was an upgrade. They were very nice and quick about it. Beds were comfortable and definitely worth the value.

Ok

We stayed at La Quinta while at a soccor tournament, it was the only hotel we could find in the immediate area accepting pets. It is far from the worst place I have ever stayed but is in dire need of renovating. Our toilet was not functioning when we checked it but they did fix it. The beds are fair, but overall the entire room was just dingy. The staff is wonderful and there is a patio with surrounding grass so dog owners will be very happy.

A nice place to stay

Went to town for a National BMX race with my 11 yr. old son. Needed a place close to the convention center and La Quinta was only 1 mile away. Good value, nice rooms overall decent stay for an older hotel. Free HBO was nice.
