"Not one of the best La Quinta Inns"

It amazes me how much this chain varies in its hotels. I am a fan of the chain and accrue award miles. I chose to stay here while visiting Austin for a couple of days. This location was the least expensive, and I did not want to spend a lot of money. Anyhow, I obtained some additional award points through a promotion, so did not have to pay out of pocket. Thank goodness. I was rather disappointed with the motel like setting.
The positive is that it has a refrigerator and microwave. There is also easy access to I-35. However, this is also a downfall, as the highway is only feet from the hotel. I doubt I would stay here again, even for a freebie.
I would not recommend this hotel at all. This hotel does not measure up to the usual La Quinta standard. The room was very small and smelled like stale smoke, and the bathroom was even smaller. Everything looked old and worn. It definitely needs a facelift!
ROOMS SMELS DISGUSTING! Carpet is filthy even the curtains had stains! First thing I did was buy Febreeze and even that couldn't take the stench away. Had to stay here for a week with my husband for his work, I couldn't wait to leave. I had to wash all our clothes to take that horrible smell out ugh totally totally disappointed!!
Stayed here for one night in October. Stayed on the West side as to avoid the freeway noise. Which was a good call. However, this hotel is worn and in need of refurbishing. Beds were springy. Bathroom was the smallest I had ever seen, in the U.S. Breakfast was basic. Did not use the pool. Price was in line with the quality of the hotel. Staff was nice and friendly. Did not use fitness or pool.
A/C was a good standard one that stays on to drowned out noise during the night. So many hotels today, even some LQs, have A/Cs that shut off automatically. This drives me nuts.
This La Quinta was poor quality even for its price after a corporate discount. The tub drain had hair inside so when I turned it on, the hair came out. Then I noticed mold (or something) on the lower part of the shower curtain. The sink must've been semi-clogged because it drained too slowly to be functional. The beds were average as expected, not a bad or good thing. As the title states, I was most impressed the ice machine. It filled up a cooler faster than expected. Sad to say that's the only thing I was satisfied with. Decent location but I'm not staying here again. The end.
