Older property. Loose outlets. Ice machine broken. Door lock needed reprogramming

This property is completely under construction the pool is green and very few of the rooms are operational

Very unclean and nasty rooms i had ro leave and still waiting fir my refund

Property, both buildings and parking lot, in need of major repair and improvements.

If I could give this hotel a -10 stars I would, it was that awful. I’ve seen some pretty bad places and I was only staying here a couple days so my dog could have surgery so I didn’t have high expectations. This place look like a drug central, people hanging out of the room sitting on the curb the room smelled like urine, tarp in the pool absolutely Most disgusting place I have ever been to.

This property is not worth a dollar their pool is a fishing pond meaning green and the rooms are ran down and trashy

The room was disgusting- There were stains all over the carpet floor, the room layout looked thrown together and there were nails sticking out of some walls. The room had a smoked out smell even though it was supposed to be non-smoking. Luckily it was a one-night reservation because I was dying to leave the moment I opened the door.

Dead roaches in toilet paper. Room smells. Beds look like someone was just sleeping in them. Orbitz advertised $41 and charged $73

House cleaning was to slow. Came back to room around 3pm and room had not been cleaned

I was disappointed by the quality and amenities at this La Quinta. The carpet in the room was very old, and so stained I didn't want to take my shoes off. The room smelled like old, musty wood, and had peeling paint and caulk. The television was on the fritz. It pixelated every few minutes in the night, and the next morning, there was no sound, and would fade to black, then come back on for almost an hour. Once it warmed up, it worked all right, with only occassional pixelation. There was no fridge or microwave in the room, as there often is at La Quinta hotels. There was no hot protein at the breakfast, but only cold hard boiled eggs. Every time I have stayed at a La Quinta, they have had hot eggs, and bacon or sausage. I paid 88 dollars for this night's stay, and the quality was comparable to a Motel 6 with waffles and hard boiled eggs. I stayed at a different La Quinta the night before, paid 80, and had a fridge and microwave, an updated, new-looking room, and hot bacon, eggs and sausage for breakfast. I feel this La Quinta location does not uphold the reputation of the brand, and I will never stay here again. On the plus side, the staff was very friendly and helpful. The staff gets 5 stars, but the hotel 2. I might as well have stayed at a Motel 6 and bought my own waffles.

Did not end up staying. Went to another hotel. Conditions were disgusting.

Loved the pool area and loved how close the hotel was to everything. Didn't love the dead roaches in our room, the pubic hair all over the bathroom, the dirty towels, the smell of weed aka canabus, the filth on the walls and the chewed up wall/ carpet near the door.

This property had great people working but the property itself was a dump. Pet stains all over carpet. Hairs in bathroom. Smelled of cigarette smoke

Rooms were older worn out looking. Carpet in rooms was gross looking

The building is older but is kept very clean. The front desk staff is extremely kind and caring. They seemed like they really like their jobs.

I'm sorry to hear that you didn't enjoy your stay with us. I agree that the pool right now is a sight but rest assure we are looking to have that taken care of. I would also like to apologize about what activity was going on, on the outside of the property we are getting cameras installed hopefully that will give our front desk access to monitor some of the outside activity as well.

I would like to apologize that you didn't enjoy your stay. I agree the pool is not a site to be looking at as due to the owners are not giving us the okay to get it clean and/or open it back up. Rest assure I will be passing this information on to the owners in hopes that it will speed up the process. We thank you for your feedback and take all issues serious and will be handled accordingly.

I would like to take the time to apologize about your recent stay and for the room not being up to par for your stay. Rest assure this issue is being looked into and handled accordingly. I wish you would have reported this problem upon arrival when you opened the door and noticed that room wasn't right so that we could have moved you to another room. We thank you for your feedback.
