The facility is a bit older, but the room was OK. The room was clean, the desk person was courteous and helpful, fast check in/out. Quiet and quite pleasant. The price was great and so it was an excellent value. I stayed here Nov. 2015.

We paid for the "suite" which meant upstairs from the office. It smelled horrible - HORRIBLE. Luckily I had Febreeze and the comforter wasn't on the bed correctly. I felt gross in the shower, sitting on the couch - just in general in this room. This is a really old hotel. I wrote to La Quinta to report them and...

This hotel must have one of the worst managers ever. The room that my brother and I stayed in had dirty floors, trash under the beds, and fecal stains on the towels. My relatives booked two separate rooms and both of them turned down their first and second rooms due to things such as beds not being made, marijuana joints...

Very old and a little creepy. Doors faced the outside like a motel and not a hotel. Carpet was stained and toilet ran constantly. Bed was ok but bedspread was fitted at the bottom and would not come up high enough to cover shoulders. Front desk staff were very nice and friendly.

Awkward location to get to. Crowded parking. The room had so many stains and sticky carpets, it looked like a futile cleanup effort of the Pillsbury Dough Boy explosion in the original Ghostbusters movie. Apart from the crusty occlusions on the mattress, the bedding was quite firm.

Although we were tired from traveling, this hotel had us beat. An older location, it was simply a bed and a hot shower and we were out within 8 hours. On the lower end of the cost spectrum, we should have realized why before we booked it.

Located at the interstate exit--noisy. Smelly. Run down. Did not feel safe. The staff was good and helpful. This hotel has just moved into this building and they are currently working on it. My suggestion is to tear it down. This was my third reservation and stay at LaQuinta in Texarkana, Texas. The first two stays were very nice so...

This hotel has been our usual stopping place in Texarkana for over 20 years. I'm sad to say we probably won't stay here again. It has really gotten run down the past few years. The front desk worker was very nice and efficient. But the room was dingy and the bathtub was stained. The beds were not comfortable. You would...

Old, Smelly, Dirty, Horrible Mattress, No Iron in room, just unsafe. My stay was for 2 nights. I arrived at 9:PM-ish and checked out at 2:30AM due to the above reasons that we just could not make it through the night so had to check in at another hotel in Texarkana in the middle of the night. Wasted money $$$....

As others have said, this is a pretty old LQ. They are in the process of changing out mattresses; when we pulled up to our room there were about 10 new mattresses on the curb with workers there bringing them in to various rooms. I'm hoping they are also in the process of painting/updating a bit as the walls in...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Stay at the La Quinta Inn Texarkana and you are in two places at once! Texarkana straddles two states, and at the bi-state Post Office, stand with one foot in Arkansas and the other in Texas. That means twice the service and twice the fun with convenient access to popular attractions of both states, including Spring Lake Park and Wright Patman Lake, and the Border City Bandits Hockey. Hope AR, the birth place of President Clinton is less than a half hour drive from the hotel. The La Quinta Inn Texarkana has plenty of truck parking available. Guests awaken mornings to the aroma of Belgian waffles drifting in from a Free Bright Side Breakfast served daily. We have a sparkling outdoor swimming pool and free use of an off-premise fitness center. Rooms are loaded with amenities including free wireless high-speed Internet access, a coffee maker, iron w/ironing board, hair dryer and more. Located just South of Interstate 30 on Highway 59/71, not far from St. Michaels Hospital. Pets are welcome free of charge ... more   less
