Convenient location with great service and accommodations for the price. Very happy with our stay. Room was very clean. Beds were very comfortable, and I loved the plush towels. The breakfast was decent. The kids loved the Smuckers waffle toasters.

The rooms were clean. the pool seemed to not have been kept up. The water was cloudy and very warm, too warm for a swimming pool, although the out side temperature was very hot and that could have been a factor.

Our stay at La Quinta Inn and Suites was pretty good while in Texas. While it is not the Hilton, the rooms were clean, the beds super comfortable, and the staff were friendly. A small free breakfast is offered daily too.

Great view of the highway, with industrial area surrounding. University is several miles away so not exactly "in" the University area. Being on the I-35 service road you have to drive a several mile circle in order to get anything. Even a "quick trip to Walgreens" or fast food involves driving a few miles down, crossing the interstate, coming back...

This place should be torn down or at least completely renovated. It is an old worn out place that is charging way too much and delivering little. Grounds are very dirty and parking lot has huge holes. Staff is great, but they can't overcome the problems. Same breakfast everyday for 4 days without any variety... really!

The rates were high for some odd reason on this weekend. The building is old and the rooms had cracks in the ceiling. The bath tub was high up not good for older people. Room was far from the parking lot and the room was on the second floor they claim that's all that was available. Plain and simple the...
