Reserved non smoking, gave me smoking. Cancelled reservation then and went to another hotel

Great front desk staff, but does get overbooked and unable to do maid service one day. People who stay there are nice and very considerate, even when young students traveling in large groups. Part of a bundled page deal and so the price was right. The accommodation s themselves were not the best. The rug is sticky and the structure shows heavy signs of termite damage.

We book la Quintana for every family reunion and this was not the same I hated it it was like a side of the road motel instead of a hotel.while there I saw a john beat up a prostitute and take his money back after running from one of the rooms over to the dennys the day we checked in we were greeted in the lobby by some drunk guy talking about he was in the presidential suite and by god there is not one and the shower was hanging off the wall the tub was dirty this was a horrible place unless you are on drugs and tricking oh and did I mention the 2 meth heads that had the room right under us that had the nerve to complain because we were outside talking and laughing loud. Never stay there ever it is horrible

Location needs renovation desperately. Mattresses were worn out and sunk in the middle. Microwave had a glass tray that did not fit. Grout in bathroom shower was missing or black in spots. Shower head was placed low so anyone over 5'0" would need to squat down to wash hair. Hot and cold plumbing were loosened from the wall and pipes would come out of the wall when shutting off water. Outside room door had to be pushed hard to close.

Great breakfast. Friendly and accommodating staff

Was very dissatisfied with the cleanliness of the room and felt like I was falling through the bathtub

The check-in staff were very helpful and friendly. The location is close to many affordable restaurants. My stay was comfortable and quiet. My only complaint would be the shower head height made it uncomfortable to wash my hair. It was too low and I am 5'-11. Overall a good experience and I would return under similar circumstances.

Very nice and helpful staff. Room was clean. Breakfast was good for the value.

Everything was great, Breakfast was awesome, room was great, very close to everywhere

Quiet, which is what I wanted. Hundreds of people in town for a roller skating party and apparently a dog show. Never was disturbed by other guests and their noise. Staff was very professional. And I left my coat and they were quick to respond. My second time staying for the same even and will stay again.

Just basic average hotel, needed it for quick trip and it was pretty much everything we needed nothing special

Room had a funny smell when we arrived and the bathtub had issues, but nothing major enough for me to complain to the staff.

This was a very nice room. Very quiet and restful. the room was clean and updated very nicely.

the location was good, the price excellent plenty of places to eat nearby and also the location for other things was great, and it was very close to our destination with the family

The beds were nasty and their was mildew in the bathrooms. The staff switched my room 3 times and eventually refunded my money with NO APOLOGY on their end. Please don't waste your time.

I was looking for an inexpensive hotel and it is just that. I don't expect much for $70. Nice king size bed. Warm shower. Everything worked. Room was cool. Breakfast was better than expected (waffle machine, boiled eggs, cereal, coffee, milk, etc.). I wouldn't honeymoon there but I would stay for an inexpensive getaway for sure. Also, staff was very pleasant.

Had fun thanks, nice place with the pool and affordable would recommend

The staff were very friendly. The room was clean, but our bathroom door got stuck every time you shut it, and was never fixed. The rug throughout the hotel was old and seemed dirty. It 's just an older hotel that needs updating. The pool was not opened. Although there was fruit, there was only white flour bread and muffins, and the hard boiled eggs seemed like they were boiled for an hour.

Friendly staff, decent place. Smoking room had a few burn marks around.

I didn't expect it to be "Motel" style where the rooms were outside. I went and bought a plug in because though the room was clean, it smelled like dogs which didn't make it feel clean. I'm normally impressed with the picks but this hotel was no impressive.
