I worked at LA Quinta full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

Opportunity for upward movement within. Promote from within. Enjoyable work environment, everyone gets along for the most part.

Cons

Unrealistic expectations of employees. Very few individuals carry the weight of other employees that management seems to turn a blind eye on to their lack of productivity. No standards were set when hotel first opened up and management very seldom follows up to ensure company policies and procedures are being followed.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Micro Management. Set Standards. Promoting excellence only when hotel big wigs are in town, is not the way to run a hotel. Forget the big wigs, the guests are the ones that need to experience the excellence.

    I have been working at LA Quinta full-time

    Pros

    There are some great people that work for this company! Everyone for the most part works really hard to make sure things are done the right way and they all look out for each other.

    Cons

    The company itself is extremely cheap! They focus more on saving money than they do quality for both the guests and especially the employees!!!!! The benefits are mediocre, the pay is not enough for the work expected of you!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop treating staff like an expense and learn to treat them all as the individuals they are! Just because you don't know an employee personally doesn't mean they aren't valuable! RAISE THE PAY you make enough money each year!

    Pros

    Their business strategy is price point so the properties are busy.

    Cons

    Corporate does not invest in their properties. They run a location into the ground with no major refresh or maintenance then franchise the property to a third party. When their main competitors start to become the low-range motels (Motel 6) rather than mid-range such as Comfort Inn, It'll be time to jump ship.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Invest in your properties and human capital.
