The hotel itself was ok but needed a few things fixed. The tub was stained and looked dirty and the shower head was so clogged that the water that did come out was hard and a little uncomfortable. The room was clean and beds comfortable. Our biggest problem was that there were inconsiderate people who decided that they needed to...

Jean, Thank you so much for taking the time to review our hotel. I am pleased to hear that you found your room clean and in order. Our tubs are over 30 years old and were not replaced upon our recent remodel last year. They do appear dingy and we are trying to come up with a solution to fix...

I got in late (after 11 PM) after a long, long drive from Dallas. They had my reservation, the check in was fast, the lady was pleasant, accurate directions to my room. What a deal. Nice room, typical La Quinta breakfast, fast check out. Everything I needed.

Roaches in room. Bad cleanliness in rooms and just poor service. A live roach actually crawled on my wife when we were asleep. Was not pleasant the rest of the night. We stay at La Quintas often and this has been the worst property we have ever stayed at.

I stayed here for one night last weekend, and it was a miserable stay. We were supposed to stay two nights, but cancelled the second night. Here's why it was miserable. 1. Doors open to the outside. 2. People were outside loudly conversating and consuming a case of Modelo till all hours of the night. I called the front desk...

I am so sorry to hear that you had a miserable stay at our property. Yes, our hotel is an Inn not an Inn and Suites. There are two different types of brands and ours opens to the outside. The Inns and Suites are all interior rooms. We are also a converted property as this hotel was not originally under...

Reviewed 1 October 2016 via mobile

I should have canceled when they asked for my vehicle and license plate on check in and saw the room doors were on the outside. They did a decent job of updating paint and bedding, but that's it. This hotel costs just as much as your standard decent hotel but falls far below what you should expect. List of issues;...

I love La Quinta and it is where we always stay becuase we bring our pet with us. Normally, I am very satisfied but this particular hotel was not great. There were people cooking outside of their room and at night it got very noisy. There was a lot of people walking around and being loud. Also, there was not...

Jeff, I would like to first thank you for your review of our hotel. Your comments were not the first I had about last weekend. There was a very big college football game at Texas State University and Houston in town that weekend. The entire town was sold out and football fans were tailgating in the parking lot of hotels,...

I was not able to stay at the host hotel for my company conference. Most hotels in the area were sold out. I chose La Quinta because they offered free breakfast and free wifi. The breakfast was average. Waffles, toast, cereal, boiled eggs, bananas, etc. I was not able to make a waffle or have access to the fruit selection....
