stressout at laQuinta Sarasota

Great spot were it not for"pet friendly" policy. We endured almost 3 hours of non-stop barking and whining of a dog left on its own in a neighbouring room. Could not relax or watch favourite TV programs. Had to call front desk 3 times and finally went to front desk in person, bleary eyed and exhausted, and asked if they couldn't remove the dog until the owners returned. Front desk did everything they could but policy prevents room entry by staff. Spoke to the manager the following morning.He graciously offered to remove the charge for the stay. Top marks for the staff but their corporate policy allowing dogs needs to be revisited and more out in the open.

some positives / some negative

Room was good - king bed. There was an unpleasant odor in the halls mixed with smoke smell from cigs. That really needs to be worked on - does not leave a good first impression. Just felt that the place was not that clean.

It Could Be Better

The potentiakl for the place is tremendous. But.... The suite was not the best. The furniture felt loke it was just thrown in. The airconditioner had to be replaced and left a wet carpet by the window. The small fridge had to be repared. Breakfast was OK. The staff very nice and helpful and the location was great.

Our satisfaction with the 1803 North Trail La Quinta

We had a very good experience with this LaQuinta. It was clean and very tastefully updated. My only suggestion is that they have just a little additional toiletries at the sinks and bath area. Otherwise, we were very satisfied and are going to make another reservation there for 04/15/14

Not a pleasant experience !

. We had requested Non Smoking rooms ! And since we booked several weeks ahead, we assumed our request would be met ! We were not given Non Smoking rooms! And the carpeting was just filthy, my slippers were totally soiled ! Although, the breakfast was adequate. And also, a dog began barking in the morning, for several hours ! And no one addressed this issue ! Very unpleasant experience

Sarasota trip

We were there for 6 nights for a tennis tournament. There were several issues during that time, but the staff was very responsive. The workout room didn't always have towels. The laundry room and the pool were dirty and we had a squeaky bathroom door. The staff tried to make everything better as best they could. Overall it was a decent experience for the price.

Diss appointed

Ask for a non smoking room. Smelled like it was smoke in and musty. Sofa had stains on and I would not sit on it carpet looked old and bad shape. I have stayed in a lot of Laquintas and always a pleasure. would stay here again for the money I spent.
