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.

The hotel was convenient and cheap but there isn't much else I can say about it. It's just an average room.

beach getaway

Hotel was right for the price and was as pictured! Our stay was for one night to checkout the beaches which were close by!friendly staff, decent free breakfast Room was comfy ,clean and quiet on the 3rd floor, as for the location downtown that part was not pictured with sketchy people that were walking around and the homeless people at the stop lights, I have never seen a sign on the front door that says doors auto lock at sunset use your key to enter hotel Otherwise as for a newer laquinta hotel it was a nice clean hotel

Short Overnight Stay

Check in was quick and easy. The staff were all very friendly and my room was clean. The bed was SUPER comfortable! Wasn't a fan of the shower though.... just a tiled area with a curtain to separate it, not an actual tub/shower. I was only staying one night though, so this wasn't a big inconvenience. Breakfast was tasty and check out was quick and painless! Overall, a great short stay.

Noisey

First night slept like a dream; it was perfect! Second night adjoining rooms were loud and up all night arguing, slamming doors, pounding on doors,...etc until 4:00 AM! We later learned that other quests changed rooms to avoid the problem but since we were out until 10:00 PM we didn't notice until it was to late to move in the middle of the night. Management didn't seem interested in addressing the problem with rude out of control guests so everyone else had to deal with it. Back parking lot was like some sort of pit stop; cars coming and going all hours of day and night, most of which did not appear to be guests of the hotel???? Rooms and hallways smelled of cigarette smoke. Cigarette burns in room carpet.

Sarasota La Quinta Inn

I've used this hotel twice so far and plan on using it in the future when visiting Sarasota. It's very close to the college my daughter attends, as well as downtown and the nearby keys. The staff is helpful and friendly and the rooms and lobby/breakfast area are clean. It's right on Route 41, so it's easy to find as well. While it's not a 4 star hotel, I'm rating it 4 stars for the reasons above.

Not bad

The room was OK. It was convenient to what we wanted to do in the area. The breakfast buffet was a little sparse. There was only one ice machine on the first floor; bit inconvenient.

good basic hotel in convenient location

The hotel was convenient to the airport and major highways. When we arrived late at night, the desk clerk was very nice and even called me by name when i came in, saying he was expecting us and wanted to make sure we were checked in before he reconciled for the night. The room was clean and comfortable. The breakfast was basic. We don't eat cereal or waffles so there wasn't much to choose from... For $89 it was a bargain.

Clean and affordable

The hotel was clean and affordable. Had a small pool that was nice. The complimentary breakfast was nice. It's not luxury but we didn't need/want that. Would stay again.
