"First La Quinta Experience Left A Lot To Be Desired."
Overall Score3.0/ 5
This was the first time my wife and I stayed at a La Quinta property and it was somewhat disappointing. The parking lot and walkways leading up to the property were treacherous because of the snow and ice. A little salt spread around would have made walking safer. Entry to the hotel's side door was unsecured and the door to the stairway on the fifth floor was locked. On the first morning of our stay, the free breakfast buffet was very limited with plastic utensils. The second day was a little better: same food, but at least real silverware! Our TV in room 528 wouldn't turn on when we first arrived. My wife called the front desk and was told that an "engineer" would come to our room to correct the situation. That person never showed as far as we know. Fortunately, I was able to trouble shoot the problem and I finally got the TV working. Most importantly, we stayed at the hotel because there was a major professional bowling tournament in North Brunswick. I know, for certain, that a number of the professional bowlers stayed at your facility. Was there any display welcoming them, or spectators like my wife and me, to your hotel? Not one single banner. This tournament had more than 400 professional bowlers participating in this tournament over a minimum of four days. Do you know what kind of revenue that produces for the area? I'll think really hard about making another reservation with your hotel chain.

Response from Management on 07-Jan-2015:
At Somerset La Quinta, we aim to satisfy our clients. Our high volume of groups and transients, often welcomes high traffic and turn over, as on this day it has occurred. We apologize for the limited breakfast buffet and dishes in the hallways. These issues will be addressed. In regards to banners, and the bowling tournament you were associated with, it was not known to us, since you booked your reservation through a discounted third party venue such as Priceline. We have no record of any bowling group during your stay. We would be pleased to make a banner for you, just let us know in advance.We hope you return to Somerset La Quinta, on your future stay.
