Amazing customer service!

The front desk staff was amazing! The TV in my room wasn't working and the young lady sent up maintenance extremely quicky. He fixed the problem quicky and was very nice. Please thank the entire staff for making my stay so wonderful!

Disappointing hotel in an inconvenient location.

First, let me say that the staff was friendly, courteous and helpful. But that's where the good stuff ends. Three stars is a massive overstatement. Maybe 2. Solid one.The hotel is pretty rundown, even for a La Quinta. There are YMCAs with better rooms. And the location is a long walk down a road with no sidewalks to get to anything. Avoid this place if you have a choice. Far better choices closer to downtown or campus.

Subpar

This hotel was pretty much subpar across the board. Most of the electrical outlets did not work, the bedside lamp didn't work, the phone didn't work, the maid did not come to clean the room, and the bathroom smelled like mildew. When I gave them a list of problems in the room when I checked out, the woman at the desk said, "you should have called us about the lights." My reply--I couldn't, since the phone didn't work. This is a good location, but a very poorly run hotel and the La Quinta chain should pay attention, since it reflects badly on them. I did not feel I got a good value for my $230.

Better than I thought

After reading the reviews I am not going to lie I was a little scared of staying here. However, after saying here I will say it is was alright. Our rooms were located near the pool. During the day the hotel was quiet when we returned we realized what some of the reviewers were talking about. This is obviously the hotel party hotel. TO avoid the drunken late teens-early 20's just ask for a room at the front of the hotel. Overall the hotel is in desperate need of an update. But it was clean (it may not look it because it needs some cosmetic repairs) staff was great and super friendly. I would recommend this hotel for those traveling in groups. The "hotel partiers" can give a feeling that it is unsafe if you are a lone traveler. But, they are just there for a good time and are a little loud not really looking for any trouble.
