"Three Years in a Row, but Nevermore"
Reviewed Sep 11, 2014

I teach a workshop nearby and stayed here three years in a row. Gradually noticed a decline. This year there was a 3 foot humidifier in my room. It was nice and new and the room seemed ok. I was tired, undressed, and not inclined to switch rooms. The humidifier had a steady hum that lulled me to sleep (I guess).
The hotel has seen it's best days and is nearing the end of it's La Quinta standards. I won't come back next year. Hall way carpet is old, elevator looks like beat up with luggage dings and other scratches, etc.
Price was well under $90. Now I know why.
Rooms are clean, but hallways in common areas need vacuuming and even carpet needs replacing. Outside the landscaping needs of detailing. The smoking of other customers was right at the entrance/exit doors was very annoying.
Love this hotel! The staff is knowledgeable and extremely friendly. Very nice location off the main street with restaurants with in walking distance. Our room was very clean and pet friendly. The breakfast selection was amazing, I haven't seen a selection like this in this hotel price range anywhere else yet. I will definitely stay here again.
Dirty rugs, defrosted breakfast, close to universal, On our arrival the check in clerk was awesome! When we got into the room it smelt muggy. I love pets and we have our own who stayed home on this trip. This is a pet friendly hotel however the rugs are stained and also the rooms. I can only advise if you open your hotel to pets then provide tile floors and not carpet. PLAIN NASTY SORRY...
The hotel is very convenient to Universal and they advertise a shuttle to the park. What they don't tell you though is that it goes over once in the morning and picks you up that evening. It's only a mile but you'll be walking all day. Also, the breakfast ended at 0900 sharp, which we discovered when we arrived six minutes late. The desk said there was nothing they could do yet as we walked back to our room, we were passed by a cleaning person taking several large plates of breakfast food into the laundry for benefit of the workers~!! We were concerned too about the back door to the hotel which would close, but would not lock. Any intruder could have walked into the hotel anytime. I told the desk clerk and she said she'd tell maintenance on Monday. La Quintas are usually alright but this one is so close to Universal that they know they don't have to excel - customers will always come. No this one though, next time I go to Universal, we will be staying at another hotel down the street.
