"LaQuinta Inn, Shawnee, Ok"

Roon was very clean. Evenings were quiet. Only complaint was rolls were not fresh at Breakfast bar. However, the friendliness of the employee made up for the lack of quality of the rolls. Breakfast bar also needed more fresh fruit. No compliant with the room lodcation and cleanliness. Would recommend if you are traveling I-40 through Shawnee, Ok.
"Patchouli might have helped, but the room needed a deep cleaning!"

Arrived without a reservation; I typically book online but the "go to sites" truly did not offer discounts in the Shawnee Area. I chose the La Quinta based on the reviews and was willing to pay the $85 after my AAA discount. The staff seemed friendly, however, the desk clerk needs some coaching on grooming. His nails were very long and dirty and it appeared that he had not showered this week. He did not stand to greet me and although I was a female traveling with my teen daughter- he announced very publically my room number and detailed directions to our room. After parking, I was thrilled to see fresh baked cookies, however after seeing his lack of personal hygiene I was afraid to eat them. We took the elevator to our "nonsmoking" room and walked into a strange lingering smell; the pot smoke was thick and hanging in the air. As we exited onto our floor it was very apparent that the contributors were close by.
Exhausted, we retreated to our room and began the routine of restroom, ordering take out and choosing beds. The room was musty so I turned on the air as lights and pulled back the sheets on a bed that just didn't look fresh, but I gave the benefit of the doubt that it was due to well worn sheets. After a few minutes I had my first of many flea bites. I know you are wondering why I didn't leave- it would be due to an extremely long day at OU Childrens hospital and minimal
sleep; we stopped because I simply could not drive the three hours home. I pulled out the Benadryl and hydrocortisone cream and took a quick shower where I found hair and a dirty merit around the sink. I laid a towel in the bottom of the shower and was careful not to touch the curtain or walls with my bare body.
My daughter and I inspected both beds and felt the one closet to the door was "safe"; we are a wonderful Dominos pizza and relaxed with some TV and Facebook and had lights out by midnight. The hotel was quiet and comfortable until about 3:30am when the sound of trucks and people awakened me. I got up to go to the bathroom and got more flea bites- and realized the bathroom had dirty corners.
The TV fortunately had a significant channel choice and I had used the good sized mini fridge, so I made myself a drink and had another piece of pizza- I was thankful that the food had been in a relatively safe place. The AC Unit worked well, the lay out was good although the Chair didn't fit to roll under the desk and was a constant issue until I moved it into the corner. The TV offered a USB port which was handy in charging out phones. The attendant did say that we could get toothbrushes, ect... from him- we were totally unprepared to be staying over. They do offer a breakfast, but I will pass due to my concerns about cleanliness.
I have spent approx 300 nights in a hotel over the past 3 years and this rates on the level of suburban Chicago moderate level extended stay. The decor was semi recently updated, they offer a nice sized work out center and I saw a computer for guest use in the common area and there was a pool. The ice machine was at the far end with the vending choices, but was clean and full. Sadly, I think that this could have been a great choice if the room had been flea free and attention to detail had been paid while cleaning. Fresh and not overly used sheets, a clean mirror, bathroom floor and counters and working light bulbs throughout the room would have been all we needed. The beds are firm, but comfy and the pillows offered a variety. All in all I believe that the place is run well. The clerk was very nice and helpful and well mannered, I just think that discretion is important when addressing room number and guest privacy and that he is the first impression of the hotel. His attire was appropriate and clean, but clean clothes on an unwashed body isn't a good idea- a shower and quick nail trim would have go e a long way. The hotel sliding glass door at the entry was also off track and needed repaired, but it just seemed like a situational matter- not an indicator of what could very quickly become their standard. I just sensed that in our room someone chose to rush job the cleaning; I didn't get the impression from others that they were disappointed in their accommodations. It is now 5:15 and I will lie down a but longer. This is not a bad place, but I would suggest you check the room out thoroughly to ensure it is clean and know that their best discount is in person with a military discount.
I wrote a bad review in Nov 2010 because of the HORRIBLE staff. As a matter of fact, I had not stayed at another La Quinta because of corporates and local management's reaction to my complaint. It had been almost 3 years and my issue had only been with Kendall the spiky hair woman she was no longer there and decided to book my week there. I stayed the week of Easter. The staff was exceptional and went out of their way to be helpful to guests. They were giving the place a fresh coat of paint, it was clean, safe and comfortable. I am very glad I went back and will plan next year to stay the week when I visit my family.
Eastern Oklahoma is beautiful, but there are limited places to stay along this stretch of I-40. This motel proved to be a good pick. We ate at the nearby Red Lobster and were pleasantly surprised by their fresh fish menu.
This was a very pleasant hotel...no check in problems, room was clean, beds are comfortable, bathroom was large. Breakfast hit the spot. We stay at La Quinta's a lot and there is a reason. No problems here!
