Hey La Quinta, what's Spanish for mistake?

We stayed at a La Quinta our first night on the road. It was fine for a cheap hotel, except for two things. First, the front desk gave us the key to a room that was already occupied. And this is how they still refer to the internet:

My girlfriend spent a summer studying in Mexico and finds La Quinta’s “Spanish for…” campaign slightly offensive.
I wonder if Hispanic people are insulted by it?
