We were enroute from the east coast to the west coast, when a blizzard shut our 'northern route' down and we had to detour through Texas-and traveling with a pet, La Quinta is our first choice. Upon arrival I was impressed with how new this one was. But during the stay, I found myself amused at how..out of place it seemed. Here in the middle of oil country, sits a very trendy-almost NY-ish, boutique-ish? La Quinta. Very modern fixtures in the bathroom, the decorator used lots of black, geometric designs. Place was full of oil workers. They were all very quiet, no doubt from working out in the fields all day! I felt sorry for many folks arriving assuming they would find rooms available. Front desk was turning folks away, but I noted that they were trying to call other hotels in the area to find accommodations for them.
Back to the bathroom, I'm 5'2", and I could NOT wash my face (easily that is) because the counter was too high, and I couldn't bend over it to rinse. Seems petty maybe, but really...what a pain. I needed a booster chair.
So, my husband was out walking our dog, and struck up a conversation with a local. According to this local, this hotel was built in record time (hence, all the little boo-boo's and shoddy workmanship noted in previous reviews) Maybe this is what happens when there's not enough supply to fill the demand of oil companies...throw up a hotel, quick! I too noticed many, many construction issues and short cuts. Now, this doesn't take away from whether or not it was comfortable. It was very comfortable. Absolutely no complaints there. Room was very big-bed was wonderful, and it was quiet.
What was left of breakfast in the morning was really just OK-most of these places are all about the same. Most of the time, one just needs to use some imagination.
Front desk staff was very very friendly. Night staff suggested a place for a fast bite for dinner-morning gal was very pleasant-perky first thing in the morning isn't always easy. You could tell she was very happy to be working there...nice change from some places I've been where the staff almost seems to be upset they have a job!
