"Do Not Stay Here"
1 of 5 stars Reviewed Sep 20, 2014

This is my continued review of this La Quinta. We have given this hotel numerous chances to get right. This is the filthiest hotel I have ever stayed in! Ruby checked us in and I don't know what kind of "meds" she was on but she just was not right. We walked into our room and was greeted by this horrible smell and hot room. We were looking for the ice bucket lid and found it among other filthy items behind the dresser. There were condoms, socks and dirty diapers, this room stank!!! So we went to the check in desk and checked in to a filthier room. I have included pictures of what we found. We were disgusted! Our nose was stuffed up and we got sick from this place. We told the manager and she told us that they are trying to clean this place up. They gave us a discount on our room which was not compared to the things that we have witnessed here at this hotel. This is the last time, no more will we stay at this La Quinta!!!

"Hotel caters to blue collar workers"

If you are looking for a good price, nothing fancy and quick access to that project just down the street, this Hotel is for you. It is not a dump, and it is not a luxurious palace. It is a decent 3 star hotel and not the 2 star as reported in other reviews. We will stay here the next time we come back because it is so very close to our assignments.

"Never again"

The room smelled really musty as if the carpet was full of mildew. It was clean enough, but the carpet felt wet and the odor was persistent and unforgiving. We left and went to our function for the evening, (thank goodness for the break away from the smell), came back, went to sleep, and couldn't wait to check out the next morning.

"Stay away!! Horrible."

Horrible. Used to stay here while visiting parent in nearby Nursing Home. This place has turned into a latrine since my last stay. Parking lot being mostly empty when I arrived at 6pm should've warned me away. Receptionist "Ruby" acted very strange. Couldn't find my reservation after I spelled it for her twice. Then suddenly saw it right on the desktop when I spelled it a third time. Offered no directions to my room, no explanation of lobby breakfast, nothing - just told me not to park at the bar in the lot next door (?) Finally found room (on opposite end of motel from bar - thus, why would I park my car at the bar?) Literally green mold was dripping from the balcony of the room above mine. Opened door and was overwhelmed by funky, musty, MOLDY odor. Rug was filthy. Bathroom seat looked like there were urine stains on it. Un-vaccumed dirt and crud in every corner. Mosquitoes buzzing in the room. Shall I go on? The sound of the freeway right outside my window was nerve-wracking. Finally someone started sawing, loudly, in the room next door. I called the desk and "Ruby" at first couldn't explain the sawing, wasn't sure if the room was even rented, then suddenly announced, "Oh yeah, they're working on the mold in there!" Tired and dazed I sat in a chair for 15 minutes debating if this was worth putting up with for even one night. My throat got scratchy from breathing the mold and my head was pounding. I, of course, left. Called the front desk, said I was leaving and "Ruby" answered, "OK honey, I'm busy checking someone in. "(!) I called 800 La Quinta - no one in reservations could help me. Said I'd need to talk to receptionist "Ruby". Called back to Corpus location again and got directed back to 800 la Quinta again!! Talk about a runaround. I'm done with La Quinta. LOUSY room, LOUSY Customer Service, LOUSY receptionist - never again. Called my credit card and had them deny the charge. STAY AWAY!! You've been warned!
