"I always like to stay at La Quinta when possible. My family and I have stayed at this location maybe 3 times. My only thing is I always forget to ask for a microwave in the room."

I guess you would say I was not happy at the hotel.
"When I arrived at the hotel the man behind the desk waited on me. I told him I already made 3 night reservations, and he asked me my name and said your on the computer. He seamed to be in a hurry but told me where my room was and showed me the hotel map. He pointed it out quickly. I figured I could find it OK, but wound up coming back. My room was 205, but could only find 206. Anyway 205 was behind 206 which you couldn't see from the parking lot. He did walk me to the room. The maids were not friendly at all. The cleaning was OK, but they failed to leave tissue paper, kleenex, coffee and not enough towels. I had to ask for each of them. No smile from them when I asked. One of the maids said I only had reservations for one night, and this was the second night at the hotel. I had to go across town the next day so called the hotel about the reservations. I told them I paid for 3 nights. I talked to two people about the issue, and they were not nice at all on the phone. They said you just bring the conformation # to the front desk and we will take care of it then. I wasn't a happy camper and I don't think they were either! After that I called the credit card company the I charged the room to. They gave me the phone # to the company I paid the money to. Anyway the lady I talked to at the Travel company called La Quinta and got it straight with them. I do not think I should have had to go through all that mess. There was a free breakfast each morning, and the second morning they were out of just about everything. NO jelly, no spoones had to use a fork, no fruit. The next morning was OK. Oh yes the side walks were very filthy, and trash cans needed to be empty. Pressure Washing was very much needed. I am sorry I will not recommend this hotel to anyone."

"We arrived late at night. Our room was not made up. We called the night desk and she profusely apologized and sent us to another room. She upgraded our room to a king bed instead of two queens."
