"Great Easter Stay"
5 of 5 stars Reviewed Apr 21, 2014
Lailoken | Baytown, Texas
The staff was very welcoming. They decorated for Easter & even had colored boiled eggs for breakfast. I was also very happy that LaQuinta honored my request for an upgrade since I'm a Returns Elite member. The beds are soft, and the room was spacious. Great place overall!

"Not a good stay"
2 of 5 stars Reviewed Apr 20, 2014
Patricia S | Los Alamos, New Mexico
Spent one night here and can say very little that's positive. The room appeared decently clean but was a bit aged. Bedding was clean but blanket barely covered two people and pillows were terrible. Sink was extremely slow draining. Air conditioner rattled a bit. Breakfast was the worst continental breakfast, no meats at all, no hot cereal, eggs were hard boiled. Only milk available was 2%. There was a guy bumming money under the check in canopy when we checked in. No area with grass to walk the dogs associated with the hotel and right off the highway. More homeless asking for money on several corners. Front desk courtesy was good and is the only thing positive I have to say about the place. Do not recommend and would not stay here again.

"poor experience"

not a place to stay if you want to relax. You'll be to busy noticing everything wrong with the rooms and poor housekeeping service. They also need to have customer service training and be taught on how to clean a room.

"Excellent hotel at moderate price"

David M | Las Cruces, New Mexico
We stayed just one night at the La Quinta just off I25 in Albuquerque, NM. the place was clean, quiet and we had a pleasant stay. Staff was helpful and courteous. Location was excellent -- near Sandia Peak, Gruet Winery and not far from downtown. Highly recommended!

"Comfy and quiet;"
4 of 5 stars Reviewed Apr 8, 2014

I am not sure what to say; I am a strong believer in you get what you pay for. I have observed from our cross country drive to spend the winter in the west that if a hotel/motel can cut corners to save, they will. We all have been hit hard by the recession, and the hotel industry is not exempt. This LaQuinta has a great ambiance, and has an excellent front desk staff. My reservation was placed two weeks ahead of time, so our room was ready, and all requests were met. With that said, the 'free breakfast' is minimal, and not even appetizing. No fruit offered any longer, nor pastries. I opted for cold cereal and milk. This LaQuinta, and I am assuming all La Quintas is now serving NESCAFE instead of coffee. The pluses of this property is that the bed was a King size, and extremely comfortable. We stayed in the room right next to the elevator, and no noise was heard. We traveled with our Golden Retriever, who was welcomed and given a treat on check out. A suggestion I could give is that there should be a marked, designated area for pet relief; AND pet bags provided for those guests who are courteous enough to clean up after their pet. We travel with baggies, but I saw a guest using an ice bucket bag.
