This La Quinta is a fine stay for the budget minded traveler. The property is convenient to I-20 and nearby shopping and dining. We heard very little traffic noise from the interstate or adjacent road. Torchmark Park, the home of the Mississippi Braves minor league baseball team is just down the road. Our room was spotlessly clean, no problems there. The refrigerator and microwave were great for the kids. The free breakfast was carb-heavy but with good variety including cold cereals, instant oatmeal, pre-cooked bacon and eggs, pastries, and make-your-own-waffles. Our only complaints were the front desk staffer over Memorial Day weekend and the pool. The afternoon front desk staffer was absolutely emotionless; not rude but not welcoming at all. Bizarrely, while my brother-in-law and I were walking down the hall to our rooms shortly after arrival, we heard the crash of glass breaking and a woman’s screams from the room across the hall. We pounded on the door to see if we could help and when the door opened we found a middle-aged couple staring at the smashed full length mirror which had fallen off the wall next to the sink counter while she was standing there. A while later we saw the couple moving to another room and the husband told us he had to ASK to be moved to another room; when he called the front desk the attendant wasn’t apologetic or concerned at all. The outdoor pool area was acceptably clean, numerous trees nearby drop a fair amount of leaves on the patio and in the pool. I did notice that a small table that was turned over on Sunday when we arrived was still overturned on Tuesday when we left, no staffer cared enough to turn it back right side up. The pool water was cloudy/hazy and a thin film of slime could be felt on the steps and walls/floor of the pool below the waterline like it hadn’t been vacuumed or scrubbed since opening. We let our children swim in it, but discussed it first. We would stay here again, but would look at other comparable properties first and search out a more welcoming staff and pool.
