La Quinta...Spanish for....

"One big mess up".

Let me explain a little. I am sitting in my room here in Houston were the humidity is 1000%, with a air conditioner is not working, sweating the pounds away. I can not leave my room, because I have no room key. However, my tv works and I have "new decor".

You see, I travel to Houston a couple of times a month. I always stay at the same La Quinta. This time I pull up and they guy behind the desk is obvouisly having a bad day. You see the motel was updating and today was the launch of the new rooms. Apparently, they forgot to double check everything in the new rooms. He was getting all kinds of complaints and his only defense was "but it has new decor". I check in, head to my room and low and behold my key doesn't work. So I go back to the front desk, and the poor guy already knew what was wrong. I plead my case he heads up with a master key and lets me in. The kicker is If I leave the room, and the door shuts, I can not get back in. So I sit here locked in my room. To make things worse, the new AC Unit is not blowing cold. At least my internet and TV work.
My boss is in the room next to me, his AC works, his door works, but his TV does not work.
This place is having problems....I am sure there will be a few complaints filed tonight.

But I do have to say, the new decor is nice......
