The valet was excellent. There is no self park. The front desk staff is nice. Location far from hip eateries at 2nd and Congress about 11 blocks away. Hotels such as Intercontinental, Driskill, and Radisson are better located and nicer, but more expensive. The room itself was laid out well. No view. We heard shouting, running, cussing, and bangs on our door at 2am from drunk people on Friday, but not on weekdays. The beds were comfortable and the room decor was pretty good.

"Rundown, stained sheets"

LaQuinta Inn, Austin Capitol is extremely out of date & in a literal state of disrepair. I booked a King Executive, thinking that like other, newer La Quintas I've stayed in, that it would be a larger room with sitting area & sleeping area, as shown in the pictures. This hotel has nothing of the sort, the only difference between the King & King Exec. is that the Exec. has a sofa-sleeper. Arriving, it was more obvious than the pictures that this location is very old & has not been remodeled. The valet (mandatory $12/night per car valet) guys were very nice & helpful with dining suggestions. I asked for a room on the top floor & preferably with a view which they accommodated. On the way up, the elevator shook wildly, if I were at all weak stomached, it would've been alarming. I realized quickly though that the room was not a King Exec., as it was just a standard sized room with a king bed, small table & office chair. There was not a sofa-sleeper, & then called the front desk to ask about options. They politely offered another room with one but stated that all the rooms were the same size or I could have a rollaway bed, which I chose. They brought up the bed & I thought that was sufficient, but then opening it up, it was obvious that the bed had not been cleaned. There was dirt & debris on the sheets, but worse was the huge pee stain in the middle. We were in a hurry so I decided we would just share the king bed & be done with it. As for the room condition, it's just old. The walls, the fixtures, toilet, etc. are all worn & discolored from age. The only new thing was the TV, which worked great & helped to distract us from the poor room quality. The location was ideal, the staff was great but unfortunately the building & the rooms are awful. I would not stay here again nor recommend it to anyone I know.

"Don't stay here!"

Hotel is dirty, elevators are breaking down and staff doesn't care. Walls are paper thin. Lots of smokers, clothes came home smelling of smoke, even those kept in my bag that I never took out! You are forced to use valet parking, which is a real pain in the butt. The cost was ok but not great, location to the capitol is good but no food close by.

"Outdated facility- seemed like a "motel""

Unfortunately, this La Quinta does not live up to the usual quality we expect from this chain. The location is great, but the hotel seems to be two old buildings added together and the pool is very grungy. The valet guys are great but the front desk staff was rude. He forgot to code our key to allow us to enter our "annexed" building, so we had to return from the 4th floor back to the lobby. The he tried to blame us - saying we must have de-magnatized the card. Not true we told him - it was in our hand the entire time. He still never apologized - just said maybe....... The room was clean but the hallways were not and the continental breakfast was minimal and served accross the parking lot from the hotel.
