Don't stay here

The toilet was inoperable and the La Quinta fix was to hand us a toilet plunger. Not only once, but multiple times. They did mail a coupon for a free night to us, which we received after we returned home to Oregon. Didn't help much when we needed to go in New Mexico.

Terrible traffic noise

Although the appearance of this hotel is fine and in line with the La Quinta chain, the location is terrible for traffic noise which is inescapable. It was so bad we could not block it out to sleep. The elevator to the 3rd floor was frightening. There is renovation going on as of 04/08, however this had nothing to do the the noise. We did ask for the quietest room possible on top of it. I would NEVER stay at this location again.

won't stay there again

We stay in La Quinta Inns all the timbecause of their liberal pet policy.This is the worst one we've stayed in. Very old. Needs serious renovation or perhaps a teardown/rebuild. So far below LQ standard.

Average hotel

Overall experience was okay. Normally we check bed, linens, bathroom drainage, before we unload, but we didn't check tub drainage this time. This stay was family business related so we were in a rush. The bathtub did not drain efficiently and the shower pull knob would not stay in the up position so I broke a bar of soap to lodge it in under the knob. The location was quiet and the room was very clean. The breakfast bar is minimal no hot food served and the coffee had grounds in it. We went up the road for breakfast.

3 miles from airport

I had a very early flight and wanted a hotel close to the airport, that is what this hotel is good for and the price was right. The room was clean and reasonably comfortable but the first floor room I had opened to the outside parking lot and was right next to the highway. I would not stay here again. The hotel shuttle to the airport did not start running until 6 am.

Worst La Quinta we've tried

The hotel had an odd and very inconvenient layout if you are not in the front building - lots of steps/ramps and an elevator. Not the worst hotel but it suffered in comparison to other La Quinta's. There were also other hotels as close to the ABQ airport.

A clean well lighted place

The room was clean. All the amenities were minimal. A small styrofoam cup for coffee. A small amt. of coffee. Shampoo, no conditioner. Satellite TV with spotty reception. The rooms all open to the outside. And you can hear your neighbor easily. But the staff is friendly and helpful, the mattress clean and comfortable. And it's near the airport with free shuttle service. It was a fine, inexpensive room for the night.

Convenient

The hotel itself wasn't too great. My room was outside & the doors weren't a tight fit so it was always freezing even with the heater on. Rusted bath tub. Killed a bug or too. The staff was the only good part of the hotel.
