"The Best Hotel"
Reviewed Jul 22, 2014

My stay couldn't get better. Went for a visit in the Galleria area, and the walk to the Galleria mall felt like minutes with so much to look at. Didn't go for a swim, but I noticed what looked like a jacuzzi that was so relaxing. Would book again.
We stayed with our two dogs. No breed restriction or weight limit, no deposit required. Very pet-friendly. Room was spacious enough for us and we were all very comfortable. Hotel itself is clean, staff is friendly, and despite being a pet-friendly hotel during dog show weekend, the grounds were well-maintained and clean. Would stay here again, for sure!
"Customer Service Iacking / Room reservation given away"
Reviewed Jul 19, 2014

Arrived only to find out all they had left were smoking rooms -my RESERVED IN ADVANCE WITH A CREDIT CARD NON SMOKING ROOM was given away because they "had a large group arrive". BEWARE - apparently reservations mean nothing to this team. When I asked why my room was given away Richard at the front desk indicated that "they did not have to guarantee what I reserved - they only had to provide me a room." Needless to say I was irritated and dismayed. When we couldn't agree on it I told him to give up because all he wanted to do was argue. I walked off only to have him still hounding me verbally saying "They didn't have to guarantee my exact reservation and only had to provide a room" I turned around and told him to stop or I would turn him in to his corporate office.
They found a room that was non-smoking and said the only difference is the shower. They didn't want to mention it was a handicap accessible room and I found that out once I got in the room. I have to use a CPAP machine to breath easier when sleeping so a smoking room was out of the question. I felt bad that this was the last non-smoking room left but due to health reasons had to take it.
Once in the room I set my laptop up to work only to find the light above my desk did not work. I called downstairs and asked if they could bring a light bulb up and was told no. They would have to put in a maintenance request for the next day. Unbelievable that the front desk could not get access to light bulbs. Also WiFi is hit and miss. It worked great for a while but then slowed down tremendously - to the point that I would type and wait 30 seconds for a response from my computer. They need more WiFi routers in the hotel so the signal is strong everywhere. I had to stop working because it was taking so long just respond to emails.
Breakfast for the galleria area location was basic at best - cereal, toast, muffins, fruit, boiled eggs and waffles. I've been to some LQs where you have eggs, bacon, biscuits and gravy. Not this one, you get a no frills breakfast considering you are paying $169/night for a room. They could definitely stand to improve the quality of the breakfast when guests are paying this much a night for a room. If you can't up it at least work out a deal with a local restaurant for an upgraded breakfast as an option.
My room was clean but windows definitely allow for transfer of traffic noise from the highway. Especially when the AC unit is not running. I recommend you don't get a room facing the highway. My room was on the side of the hotel and I could still hear traffic noise. Light sleepers should ask for a room that faces the side street that runs along the back of the hotel.
Overall nice hotel, but front desk could use some brushing up on customer service skills. I would stay here again ONLY IF I HAD TO. Would rather give my business to a LQ hotel that appreciates its guests - next time I will likely stay at the Pearland or Webster location which has some awesome feedback and proactive manager. I almost did this time but decided to give this location a try. Stayed at the Webster location last year and had a fantastic stay! So Pearland LQ, you are up next when I come back on business!!
The hotel and room was very clean. Staff was very friendly. The only downfall, this time, was the huge amount of teenagers staying the same night and making a little extra noise than I am comfortable with. Also, the breakfast area was too crowded, and there seemed to be only one person trying to replenish the food items. I love that my checkout time was 12 noon!
We were visiting friends and the central location of this La Quinta is a real plus. Our room was large and very comfortable. The breakfast was very mundane and they serve the hideous Nestle (not quite instant) coffee. The Galleria is 2 blocks away and there are many good restaurants near by. One hint: always exit out the back; don't go out the freeway access side. The Houston traffic is so terrible, the rear access puts you on a side street and makes it much easier to get around. Lot of business people stay here; so, the rates jump during the week.
