"Not my favorite LQ..."
3 of 5 stars Reviewed Sep 22, 2014

We have stayed here twice now, the first time having been in August. I held off writing a review because I knew we would be back and wanted to give this place another chance before writing anything negative. After this second stay, though, I have to say I was less than impressed with a couple aspects. But first, the good: I can only speak to the suites, but the room size was fantastic. Definitely one of the biggest suites I've seen for a La Quinta. I was initially wowed on our first visit by the room size and was feeling really happy about staying in the quasi-secluded location. Also, the prices are good and the location in relation to everything we had to go to was excellent. 10 mins to the Mills, 15 to Ikea, 10 to Tempe Town Lake plus numerous other stores and restaurants within the same range. All that was really great, BUT... The housekeeping has some serious issues. I actually brought a blacklight on our first trip, and let's just say I could tell the box spring covers don't get changed. Walls don't get cleaned. I didn't bring it on this most recent trip, but I didn't need it. There was what appeared to be urine on the innermost bathroom door that had apparently dribbled and dried. Just staring me in the face, so I don't know how that was missed or if it was noticed and no one cared. I'm thinking the latter because neither the front desk nor the housekeeping person that came to clean it apologized for it. Which brings me to my next not-so-great point: the staff. While friendly enough, I get the feeling that no one cares about anything. The person who checked me out (because they don't use express check out here) didn't even ask about my stay or my room or any of the normal check-out chit chat. I guess if they really want to know, they can read this review along with all of you. Also, the breakfast is not really worth it. There is nowhere to sit, ever. The selection is not that great or tasty but I mean, if you are starving and don't want to spend money to go next door to Denny's, then it will suffice. Overall, it saddens me that this particular LQ has the glaring problems that it does, because I LOVE the room size and location. But pee on the door??? Not acceptable.

"good price and location for PHX"

This place is a great location for accessing the airport. Front desk staff and shuttle drivers were pleasant and helpful. Room was clean. Great rate. We left really early and weren't able to take advantage of breakfast but it looked like the normal set up. Make sure you reserve a spot on the shuttle, they fill up.

My family finds this location to be clean, quiet and friendly. The rooms are updated with comfortable beds, clean linens, etc. The breakfast is always presented nicely in a clean, easy to access area. The pool is enjoyable also, with few people ever using it. The staff is polite and always go out of their way to assist us with any questions from directions to delivery pizza shops. Love this LaQuinta. Stay here several times a year when in Phoenix.

"OK, not great."
3 of 5 stars Reviewed Sep 3, 2014
This hotel has the bare, LQ bones. Front desk staff was helpful. Others didn't seem so happy to be there. The room was nice and cool. The AC worked well. The bathrooms were extremely small and cramped. The beds were comfortable. It was too hot to spend any time outside, so I can't comment on the neighborhood. Their ad stated they had a shuttle, but there wasn't one at PHX. We had to have an airport employee call the hotel for us to find out that we had to take a cab. LQ would either pay for the cab or they'd pay us back. This seemed weird. We made them pay for it. Breakfast is your standard LQ. Waffles, bagels, OJ, apple juice, apples, bananas, cereals, HB eggs, yogurt, coffee. The pool was average. No one else in the hotel seemed to want to use it. It wasn't big, but it worked. It's 3-5 feet deep. Close to airport. Apparently for downtown cab drivers though, it's confusing to find. We were in to see a baseball game. I'll stay here again, but I'll get a bigger room. The room we had was WAY too small.

The hotel fit our travel plans. They provided a shuttle from airport to hotel plus return. Accommodations were good as was the overall layout of the hotel. The breakfast looked good although we did not partake.
