I would say that the building is almost at the point of no return. Huge gaps on side and bottom of the door to the point I could see outside. I would not recommend unless you are desperate. Very surprised LaQuinta would put there name on this place. I normally think of La Quinta as clean, safe, decent place to stay, but this place is past its prime.
Oh, dear! A sad, tired motel that has seen better days.
My “deluxe” room (232) was said to be the best in the hotel, as it had recently been “remodelled”; to judge by a couple of the other rooms I saw, that is probably true - certainly better from within than from the outside. Pretty well-equipped, too, with a refrigerator, microwave, iron & ironing board, and a coffee machine (albeit badly in need of rescaling).
However, I was unable to take a shower during my 2-night stay, as I was unable to switch the control from bath to shower. Three different staff members (including a maintenance man) had a look at it and declared the control to be defective; only on the morning of checkout did a member of the housekeeping staff manage to work out how it functioned! Her visit was shortly followed by that of a maintenance man, who again declared the control defective: I had to show him how it worked! It transpired that, as a result of the “remodelling”, the room had been fitted with a shower control different to that installed in any of the other rooms! If the staff didn’t know how it worked, what chance did an overseas visitor stand? I have claimed a gratis night under Wyndham’s “100% Satisfaction” guarantee, but have been ignored...
Worst of all, perhaps, was the “continental breakfast”, with single-use plastic plates, bowls and cutlery, and plastic-wrapped, individual portions of high-carb, high-sugar food. Fortunately there’s a diner close by!
