"Comfortable room/noisy guests"

We stayed in Denton after watching a drum corps competition. When we checked in at 10:30 p.m., the lobby/breakfast area was full of teenagers hanging out (another review indicates that there was a softball tournament.) While the room was comfortable, the noise/talking in the hallway was disturbing. Wifi didn't work for some reason, husband was on the hotel phone with a service desk until 2 a.m. trying to help them troubleshoot the issue. Wifi came back online at 7:30 a.m. Fire alarm went off at 7 a.m.; while we didn't have to evacuate, it took 5 minutes for the alarm to be shut off. Did not try the breakfast. Staff was pleasant.
Very nice hotel. The lobby and the breakfast area are kinda combined and very large.
Our room was very clean, the rug looked new. Desk people were friendly as was the
person working the free breakfast area. Booked the room one before our stay on the internet and got a very good price. I would stay here again and would recommend this hotel.
7/18/2014 stay after making reservations a month and some change in advance.Requested high floor, King suite, away from exits, elevators, stairs prefer a less traffic quite room. 7/17/2014 at 5:27 received a call from LaQuinta that the room requested was not available due to weather conditions but they could put me in a regular room if that was ok? "No"....but the manager at LaQuinta resolved this issue.
We make it to the hotel you have to turn on a side street, then the street curves, and then it's a little tricky to get to the hotel. There is a Value INN and Holiday Inn located in the same parking lot. We were able to check in early. The hotel was very nice inside but the carpet is NASTY...YUCK! It just spoils the decor.
We get our hotel keys, get off the elevator and there was more NASTY carpet. Plus, the trash can next to the elevator was overfilled. Once inside the room#408 it was nice and clean, with fridge and microwave.
Later, that evening from about 7:30 pm until about midnight is when our stay became a nightmare. There were a group of girls in the hallway(VERY loud) I called the front desk. Ok! about 9pm ish(loud noises AGAIN) I called the front desk. Then for some reason a young man decided to sit in the hallway with his headphones on (looking creepy). So I was literally UP ALL NIGHT. DO NOT STAY in room 408 or 409(right around the corner from the elevator, high traffic)
The breakfast was the usual waffles, eggs, cereal, biscuits, yogurt and fruit. The staff was EXCEPTIONAL(making sure the eating area was clean and everything was refilled and fresh) very nice ladies.
We were suppose to stay the whole weekend but after the sleepless night we checked out after breakfast. Upon check out I was asked about our stay and I hesitated and told the lady at the desk about the noise and she stated there was a group of softball girls staying there.
Upon leaving we also noticed some RUDE person left their dog's poop right out the side exit door. La Quinta needs to have cameras on the outside of the entrances and exits because of safety and to catch RUDE people making the outside grounds FILTHY!
For some light shopping and eating, there is a Ross store, 5 below, Kohl's and some restaurants.
I have stayed here numerous times. This time was great except for one thing. Someone was smoking in a room on one side of me. I was in room 312. When I went down to report this, another guest was doing the same thing. It really downplays the pleasant stay when smokers refuse to follow policy. I assume they were fined $250.
One more suggestion. Though I know Denton to a point and have been to several eating places, the front desk clerk did not have many recommendations and had no idea what Kelechi was. It is rated the # 1 restaurant in Denton on Trip Advisor. Corporate might instruct employees if they are new to Denton or not familiar with places, to explore this a bit.
Very clean, updated, good service, comfortable bed with plenty of pillows, spacious room. Breakfast is basic and the attendant does an excellent job of replenishing the food and keeping the area clean and neat. Pet friendly with plenty of grassy areas in which to walk your pets. Great value. It is a little tricky to access the hotel when coming from the south.
