"Close to airport"
4 of 5 stars Reviewed Apr 6, 2014
Teresa B | Edmonton, Alberta, Canada
Needing an airport hotel in Phoenix, we chose La Quinta Inn Phoenix Sky Harbor. The rate was decent, and the room was more than adequate. They must have renovated recently, because the carpet, linens and furnishings, including flat screen TV were all new . The room was spotless. The girl at the desk was very sweet, and had a google map to the airport at her fingertips. The rate includes a self serve breakfast of waffles, hard boiled eggs, toast, yogurt, fruit, etc. This is not a hotel to spend a lot of time at, but for one night before a flight- it's pretty good. I would stay here again.

"Overbooked; No Room Upon Arrival Despite Reservation"
1 of 5 stars Reviewed Apr 4, 2014
SNGraham | Chicago, IL
We reserved a room for one night's stay at this particular La Quinta about 10 days beforehand. One day before our planned arrival, we confirmed the room with La Quinta by phone and advised that we would be a late check-in because our flight was due to land late. The reservation agent promised that she would note our late arrival in their system so that the room would not be given away. When we arrived at the hotel, we were told by the front desk that they were oversold. There were no rooms left in the hotel. The hotel had made arrangements for us to stay at a nearby Quality Inn instead. La Quinta picked up the tab at Quality Inn (or however that works between hotels) but it was a disappointing experience all around. I don't understand why were allowed to make a reservation in the first place or why we were not advised about the oversold situation until we arrived at the hotel. There were opportunities to tell us about the overselling of the hotel when we spoke to them the week before our trip and the day before our arrival.

The staff was not surprised when I wanted to see the room before checking in, nor when I returned to the desk and said I was cancelling. The room had been cleaned, but was frayed. The premises are dirty, there are broken down parts in the elevator and all around as I made my way to the room. I generally like La Quinta, and it's the first La Quinta I've seen that's in such bad shape.

"Sky Harbor La Quinta"

Robert M | Tucson, United States
This is a pretty good value; a touch pricey but it's a friendly and accommodating place. The neighborhood has little to offer but there is a Denny's close by and very easy access to all destiinations, once you know what you are doing.

"Might be nice if I didn't enjoy breathing so much"
1 of 5 stars Reviewed Mar 18, 2014
Sue T | Moorestown, New Jersey
Although I had a reservation, somehow the only available room was a smoking room, and boy oh boy had there been a lot of smoking. It really smelled like a stinky bar. They sprayed it but then it just smelled like bad perfume on top of smoke. They also offered to "ozone" it but said I would have to leave the room for 30 mins. Not sure what kind of chemicals I wasn't allowed to breath for 30 mins, but at that point I just opened the door (opened to outdoors) and window and hoped nobody would come in and rob me. Breakfast was fine and ap shuttle convenient, but nothing makes up for a nite of filling your lungs up with stale smoke, UGH! Oh and when I complained in the morning, I got a tired "Oh, Sorry." Well La Quinta you're OFF my hotel list, and I travel a lot. Where do you get off assuming anyone will be ok with a smoking room? What if someone had asthma, you could really hurt someone with that level of smokiness.
