Default Hotel room advice needed - Laredo

Hey gang,
My self and three hunting buddies will be in Laredo area this coming weekend. I need to get some hotel rooms for Friday night... Those familiar with the area, have any recommendations? Don't need fancy... Just gonna sleep... get up Saturday morning and look at a ranch...

Any good spots for supper (on the US side o tha river) recommendations would be appreciated too.
Many thanks!

I used to stay at a place off of I35 - Garden Inn. It's just a place to sleep, not pricy and had a breakfast too. Lot's of good places to eat, depends on what you are looking for. Cheap - El Palenque. Better places if you are not looking for cheap. I'm sure guys from Laredo will chime in.

There’s a few off Bob Bullock near Jacaman I’d recommend that area. For dinner Palenque Grill is pretty hard to go wrong with. Quite a few taco spots that are amazing as well. Tacos Kissi rings a bell. It’s been 7-8 years since I’ve spent any time down there, so my memory is a bit faded.

Tacolare for great tacos. La Carreta for carne asada plates. The Springhill suites is about 100.00 a night. La Quinta is less and nice on 35.

Palenque Grill is right by that La Quinta. Good food.

Somebody quote me so he can see this. Maybe it can start the road to him taking me off his ignore list. Lol.

i was just in Laredo a couple of weeks ago. if you want a larger chain place i usually stay at Marriott properties and things are always ok. They have a Court Yard and a Residence Inn that i have stayed at. If you want something directly on the river (border) this is a small hotel with garage parking. i can't remember the name but it is the only place just north of the actually bridge to cross over.

Call the La Qunita's and ask if they are interior or exterior. Some of there older ones are exterior doors only, just in case you care. I stayed in a La Quinta in Laredo but it was about 4 years ago so I don't remember which.

We went to Laredo this Saturday to view a lease. It was East of town off 359 so we ate at La Fogata. They had the best beef fajita meat I have ever eaten. And I eat a lot of Mexican food!

I've stayed at the Holiday Inn Express on Loop 20 (Bob Bullock) at least 20 times in the last 5 years. I have never had any problem.

The LQ on 35 is outdoor. It used to be bad but they cleaned that part of town up. The LQ on Bullock is newer and Indoor.

You need a new lease Slick. You've been awful grouchy since you lost your last one. Good luck!

They have a parilla for 2 or more that has fajita, shrimp, and sausage that is dang good. For something less expensive, more of a dive, and super delish go through chalu burger on Saunders and get the desabrada mini tacos...can't go wrong either way.

Thanks Stick... One thing I don't think I have ever done is make my food choice off a menu by looking at the right hand side of it... probably should, but I enjoy good food.

In my hometown I sometimes choose my food based off the right side column. Not when I’m out of town though. Palenque is a good one to choose by what’s listed in the left hand column though. Enjoy.

I spent 2 years bouncing in and out of Laredo for work, and spent a good majority of my time there. I quick drive through town and I’m sure I could think of plenty of other great options, but Palenque Grill is the only one hat rang a bell for me right now.
