"Great location and outstanding staff"

I picked this La Quinta because the location is close to meetings in Edinburg that I had earlier in the day. This hotel is also next to McAllen and all its great restaurants. I checked in late and just missed "happy hour" at the hotel where they serve complimentary drinks and snacks. The front desk staff person, Lexi, was great. She offered to serve me even though they had just finished. I declined, but was very impressed that she was willing to go out of her way to make me feel welcome. I called earlier in the day, knowing my arrival would be late, and made a few special request for my room. Much to my surprise the Manager personally took my call, Baldemar. He was very nice and assured me that my room would be as requested. When I got to my room, it was just as I requested. I was very pleased. The room is spacious, very clean, great beds, and nice and quiet. I normally stay at 4 and 5 star hotels... and they have nothing on this La Quinta. The hotel is new and in great condition. I am very picky about where stay when traveling, this hotel is definitely a place I highly recommend and will continue to return for stays.
Staff was very nice and accommodating. My only advice would be to bring your own pillows. The pillows in our room were like sandbags and kept popping out from under our heads all night long. Not a very restful sleep the first night but staff took care of the problem and much better the second night.
Best "La Quinta Inn" accommodations I have stayed in. The hotel looks much newer and clean vs others I've stayed before. Good service by the staff members. I definitely recommend to stay here, and it's very close from shooping zone of McAllen

The hotel was nice and clean, however I had a 3-day (Pre-booked) stay and each day I had to go to the front office to get a new access card for my room. My room was in the annex (building next to where the front desk was) so it was an inconvenience.
On the second evening of my stay, I noticed what looked like 'caked-on' powder soap on the bed sheet (fitted sheet) and it was quite extensive and quite uncomfortable to lay. I made the front desk aware of this and asked if the sheet could be changed and she said she could not leave the desk but gave me a king-size sheet for me to change myself.
The staff is the primary reason I would recommend this hotel. Value would be my secondary reason. The staff remembered our group from previous business trips even though our last visit was 6 months ago. We travel and stay at many hotels in my line of work and with any hotel there are going to be issues from time to time. In my opinion, the mark of a good hotel is one where the staff takes care of your issues once they're brought to their attention. The staff at this hotel is friendly and responds quickly to our request.
