La Quinta Inn Colorado Springs Garden of the Gods

2.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

This La Quinta is one of the old ones with no indoor access to the rooms. I have a dog which I notified the front desk at check-in. I was given a room at the back of the hotel on the first floor. I assume it was because of my dog. I have no problem with that. The problem was across the street, there is an industrial park. In the back of the park is a main freight train line. After about 5:00 PM, there was quite a few trains that passed by through the night. It wasn't that much of a problem for me; except my dog would occasionally bark when he heard the roar of the freight train engines which in turn woke me from my sleep. The second thing was the continental breakfast was limited compared to more modern La Quinta's that I have stayed at. I assume it is because they have very limited space for the breakfast. Finally, I noticed in the morning ants on the bathroom floor. I did notify the desk what I had seen. It appeared that the ants were limited to the bathroom; because I seen no others in the room. Would I stay there again, probably not. But if you are looking for a cheap place to flop for the night and reasonably clean, I would say go for it. It is located right off of I-25 with plenty of food options and a very nice view of Pike's Peak.

On the positive side the room was clean and comfortable. Normally that is all we look for when sleeping over night while on the road. I will be moved to write a review when the experience warrants either praise or caution. In this case Caution is needed. There was an incident at 4am with a disorderly guest in which police were called in. When I spoke to the desk at check out they were proud to say these incidents have not happened at the property much anymore. If safety and peaceful rest is what you are looking for. You might want to give this one a pass.

This hotel is very dated and run down not a place most tourists or vacationers would want to stay as we found out a good portion of the hotel was occupied by construction crews. The hotel staff were all very pleasant and accommodating so my rating only refers to the poor condition of this hotels, this hotel should be priced more in the $50.00 range.

Looks like this hotels they never shampoo the carpets, when you walked bare footed your feet turns black, it happens an two different places, last one in Colorado Springs, Orbitz please drop this advertisments. Thank you

Was really really bad hotel.... the condition of the room very bad... carpet Very Bad... so dirty!!! Not clean at all!!! Bathroom bad clean!!! Mirror dirty!!! Was so dirty everywhere!!! The desk dirty!!! Stick!!! Auful!!! I was in another hotel La Quinta in Houston, Texas!!! Was very good!!! And I was believed that all La Quinta are the same!!! But Not!!! This La Quinta Colorado Springs Was So Bad!!! So dirty!!!! Very Bad!!!

The grounds were old and dog feces were everywhere. I waited an hour to check in because no one was at the front desk.

only there late evening and left early AM, breakfast was OK

The hotel is old. The pool bottom cut our toes. The room could be cleaner. Housekeeping didn't change sheets for 4 days. They didn't even clean one day and then said the do not disturb sign was up. It wasn't.

Old hotel with very stinky rooms. Carpets are dirty, beds looked bad

Staff was very nice breakfast was good. Nice that it is dog friendly. Good location. Bathroom was dated they should updated,

Easy access to and from I25. Fast food restaurants galore in the area, so if you like to get it and go... Thosnis the place!

We have stayed here before without problems, but this time the room and the grounds needed some attention.

It was good over all. The breakfast wasn't as good as I expected.

The hotel is located near the main atractions,which make it easier to move around. Great location.

This hotel was clean and very close to the UCCS campus.

Everyone was very nice. Good hotel. We would stay there again.

Stayed here overnight. Room appeared clean, but had a funky odor when I first entered. Kept door open for approx 30 minutes to air room and it appeared to clear. Kept AC on to keep air moving. TV and wifi worked. Bathroom was ok, but small. Staff was friendly at desk. Location is ok for travel on way to destination. Not great for longer stay. Overall an ok overnight room.

Staff was friendly. I thought I had booked a room with 2 double beds. Found out they only have full beds in double rooms. A little too cosy.

Stayed here to attend UCCS Orientation. Very close to campus, restaurants, and shopping.

I'm sorry your stay was not as anticipated. We typically do not have many issues at this location. However, we cannot control everyone and their actions. We can only take the proper actions necessary to keep everyone in the hotel safe. We also have security during the night hours. We hope you will consider us in the future for your stays in Colorado Springs.
