2.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Staff is fine, but this property is far below typical LaQuinta standards. It is dirty and very dated as well as being right next to the Freeway (loud!). I wouldn't stay there again at any price.

Comfortable bed, outdated everything, smelled like cigarettes, stains on the carpet.

Woken at 2:30am by talking outside my room; Woken at 5am by a loud crash from the room next door. The only thing I really needed from my stay this hotel was to be able to sleep. They were unable to deliver.

Room smelled like wet dog and this place is a meth head gang out

great location and good service. breakfast area was a bit small for weekend crowds

Really old room and not in good conditions. Mattress really old

Overall my experience with this hotel it was very dirty smell horrible miany spills on the carpet, the room wasn't even vacuumed. We have to move to another room because it smells so bad in our first room . Overall from 1 to 10 I give it a 1.

The physical plant here is worn out and no amount of paint will help. How long does it take a plate glass mirror to delaminate the silver off the back? To my eye everything looks to be 1970's. There is no more getting the bad smells out. It needs to be gutted and remodeled.

The smell pretty much smacked us in the face as soon as we opened the door. Called front desk to see about changing rooms. They refused, but they would send someone to spray the room. Never happened. A whole bottle of Fabreeze was the only thing that made it bearable. Only there 1 night thank goodness. Use to like LA Quinta. Bed was comfy, clean linens.

I love to stay a La Quinta Hotels, and they are normally pretty good, but this hotel has been my worst experience. The rooms are dirty and need an urgent renovation.

I definitely left my i-pad on the bed when i checked out and i realized it after a few hours. I called front desk and asked them if their employee found it during cleaning the room but not. Totally disappointed..

It was fine. I only stayed at night. Breakfast was fine too.

Clean environment, a little noisy on the freeway side. Very courteous staff. Good temporary stop for business travel or to stay locally when needed which in my case was a home renovation. Good value.

Internet work well, breakfast is fine, enjoyed making waffles. Fairly quiet and got work done.

After a long 20 hour drive we got to our room at 2:30am. Ready for a clean comfortable room and that is not what we got. The walls were stained with dirt and other things. The room smelled like some had just been smoking pot and cigarettes in there. That smell lasted the whole time we were there. They never cam to clean the room while we were there. They also needed a deposit even though the room was prepaid. We will never stay there again even if it was free.

It was fine for what we needed.everything was average. the lady at the desk was very friendly.they did not leave coffee cups the second day or clean out coffee brewer. the grounds were nice, but needed some cleaning. over all it was ok.

Nice place, stayed there for a concert near by and was able to walk to the venue from the hotel. Overall good.

This is the dingiest hotel that I'ver ever stayed in. The rug looks too dirty to walk on and the towels are very thin.

Very welcoming staff. Bathroom floor should be replaced.

We have two adults and 4 kids staying at this hotel. The room never had a trash can in the bathroom after asking 4 days in a row. Then the main room only had a very tiny trash can for us to use. So that was kind of a inconvenience to keep asking for a trash can for the bathroom and not have it. The breakfast was decent and we did sleep OK.
