Recent guest reviews

The first room I was given was dirty and dingy. I asked for another room and got one which was acceptable but not great. The common areas are old and dingy and the breakfast was sub-par, even for discount hotel standards.

The heater in our room sounded like a space ship was taking off when it kicked on. There was a large group staying next to us that drank and smoked weed all night. I called security but nothing happened. Overall, a pretty awful night.

My stay was very satisfactory. The room was spacious and clean. I was too tired to go out for supper, and the food offerings were limited, but tasty. Breakfast was good. Staff very polite and efficient.

Very good experience. It was clean, staff was friendly, breakfast was good.

Hotel advertises itself as 100% smoke free. Upon entering the room we were given, it reeked of cigarette smoke. I informed hotel front desk about the problem and they promptly gave us another room and it was clean and was odor free.

Few restaurants within walking for evening meal. Hotel is a bit tired and needs refresh.

Arrived at 7pm, needed to get ready and be at an event by 7:30. Room was not ready. Lobby was full of other guests in the same situation. Although I prepaid for this room months in advance no accommodations were made to make it better. Left and went to another hotel and had to pay anyway.

Room was fine. Good for the price. Lots of eating options nearby.

Beautiful old hotel. Well kept. Gas and food within walking distance. Free parking.

1. La Quinta gives me best Bang-for-the Buck. We got a room with 9th-floor view (not towards the riverfront or capitol, though), good breakfast, and free shuttle bus around downtown or within walking distance to most places. 2. Shuttle bus driver is busy so sometimes it is better to just walk (10' to Marriott, 12' to the other entrance of Statehouse Convention Center), 15-20' to capitol or river market (opposite directions). Little Rock is small, anyway.

Location very average and restaurant below average. There were outsiders that had to be excorted from the hotel that made things uncontiable

The employees are all super-friendly and eager to help in any way that they can. As a woman traveling alone, it is important to me to feel secure. The La Quinta Inn & Suites in downtown Little Rock did that as covertly as possible. I enjoyed seeing all the pet dogs coming and going from the elevator too. It's good to know there is a lodging establishment that welcomes all members of the family. Usually I am very nervous in the city, but not here!

Good location. Parking deck a nightmare, not connected to hotel, when you enter hotel you have to haul your luggage up stairs to gain access to hotel -no wheeled carts and breakfast does not start early enough. Room carpet dirty and they need to clean behind furniture

We stayed at this hotel for 6 days 5 nights. Not once was the floor swept behind food buffet. in the corner there is a pile of crumbs and fruit loops that have fallen from the buffet table. My room and the hallway of my floor was never vacuumed. The floors in the lobby were very dirty. The elevators smelled like arm pits. the walls of the elevators were covered in greasy finger prints and mystery smears. behind my night stand in my hotel room there was a moldy chewed up chicken wing that has been there for who know how long. If you are expecting to eat the free continental breakfast you better think again. The hotel is rather large and the staff that man the buffet seem to think that they don't need to replenish any food that runs out. On the last day of our stay there was literally a line of 15-20 people who were waiting for someone to come put more food out. The young lady who was responsible for the breakfast line couldn't have cared any less. There was 2 pieces of bread left for a group of over 15 people waiting for milk, eggs, bagels, cereal, orange juice, waffle mix, etc.

If you are a non-smoker, do not stay here! I changed rooms 2 times and they were so bad that I got a migraine. The cleaning supplies were sprayed so strong to cover up the smoke smell it made it even worse. I woke up with a bloody nose from the pollution in the room. The whole hotel was a smokers dream. Even the elevators reeked of weed. All of them. I could not escape it. Im not a prude but I get drug tested for my job so being stuck in an elevator that is like a hot box made me VERY uncomfortable. I would NEVER advise anyone to stay here. It totally sucked.

This was a good stay for the Little Rock Marathon. They had breakfast available and a comfortable place to relax while eating. It was close to the race start line, so that was convenient for me.

Had to change rooms twice due to AC leak and other not woirking. Third room i cleaned filter myself....shuttle was nice and breakfast was great!

This hotel was perfectly adequate for the price. The staff was friendly and the room was clean with a comfortable bed. The free airport shuttle saved us from renting a car which made the price even more economical. Good practical hotel.

This was my first trip to Little Rock on business and I was very pleased about the location to my clients . The added benefit is that I was within walking distance to the center of town. The free shuttle was great. I left my hair brush at home and they took me over to Walgreens to pick up another. Very friendly staff. The hot breakfast was another plus. Nice place for the money. You can find fancier, but for a budget minded traveler, this is a very nice hotel.

Thank you for letting us know about your stay and I apologize for the issues you experienced while stay with us. I will have maintenance replace the heater in your room and find out why our security did not respond to the issues with the other guest. Usually we are very good about taking care issues with guest disturbance and in particularly when it has to do with smoking of any kind. Please contact us directly so we can discuss further.

Thanks for your comments about your stay. Sometimes people will smoke in a room even with us being 100% non-smoking. Our housekeeping team should have noted this and thoroughly cleaned the room before provide it to you our guest. Glad to hear our team was able to take care of you quickly with a new room.

Appreciate your comments and glad to hear our location worked out for your meeting. We also provide our shuttle service within 2 miles of the hotel which provides service to some fantastic restaurants. We are finishing up on refreshing 5 floors of rooms and hallways and hope you will be back to give one of them a try. Russell H, GM
