        Horrible Hotel

        My dog found three boxes under the bed and had them shred all over the room. No telling how much pizza he ate, but his stomach was very upset. TV was broken and had to be fixed. There was a fatal shooting at his hotel two weeks ago which I was horrified to hear about but it was too late to swap hotels. No where to walk dog. Stay away!

        Pet friendly, yes. Cleanliness is pretty good inside the room. Staff is nice.

        But... Overall, uncomfortable. Beds are hard as a rock, pillows sink down flat as a piece of paper, you can hear EVERYTHING outside and upstairs, there is trash everywhere outside, and the internet barely works (I've currently been waiting for a connection for twenty minutes). Not somewhere I would recommend if you're driving cross country/ long hours to get rest.

        Okay for Dogs

        This is an older-style La Quinta with a 'motel' type layout. The price was right and rooms appeared clean. We were given a room in the "L" angle of the hotel on the first floor. It was very convenient for us as there was a small grassy area directly outside the door. While there are some grassy spaces, it is at the intersection of two major highways, so there is no large expanse of grass. Austin, of course, has a number of off-leash dog parks and on-leash trails. So it is very easy to give your dog exercise at a nearby park. The staff at the hotel were very nice and accommodating. If you want a room with a microwave and fridge, book early as these rooms appear limited.

        I generally like La Quintas, but this property is foul. The light switches are covered in grime and bacteria, there is unknown debris under the bed that my dog keeps trying to get at, it's filthy, it smells, and falling apart. It's a use-tissues-to-touch-anything, and wear flip-flops in the shower/on the carpet kind of room.

        Large Breed Friendly

        Room was clean and staff was friendly. We stayed with our Pit Chief McLovin who is 70lb. It was so nice that housekeeping doesn't clean room until you leave. We were able to sleep in!

        Pet-Friendly For Sure

        Room was good for a La Quinta. Very pet friendly since we had 3 large (65lb., 90lb., and 95lb.) dogs and a cat. breakfast every morning included muffins, yogurt, bagels, fresh fruit, coffee, juices, cereals. The WIFI was down for our part of the hotel and we had to use the WIFI in the lobby... not convenient. Overall, not bad, since we had evacuated from Hurricane Ike.
