Had just stayed in a La Quinta Inn in up in Macon Georgia a few days ago and it was awesome! However, we were quite disappointed When we arrived here And opened the door to a very old, stale/Musty smell in the lobby. The smell is actually all throughout the hotel--everyday when we left and returned, the same musty smell greeted us. The front desk personnel were always very pleasant and seemed genuinely glad to have us there. Breakfast is on the slim side. Rooms are very dated and there are very few outlets to plug in your Electronics without unplugging a clock or lamp! TV acted up--volume not available on all channels and would automatically change channels on its own--very odd! Surrounding area appears safe and is very close to major highways. Lots and lots of construction underway on the main road--Ulmerton. Beaches are about 25-30 minutes away, but easy to get to--especially w/ a GPS. Before this trip, I'd not stayed in LQ hotels and other than the Macon, GA location, i probably wouldnt chance it again. Overall, I wish we'd paid a little more and stayed somewhere else.

Checked in on Friday night March 15, 2013. I wasn't sure what to expect given the cost of our room was only $122 and we'd never stayed at a La Quinta before. We needed something close to the PIE airport so we could catch a 6 am flight. We were deee-lighted with the accommodations. Spacious, clean room. Beautiful decor. The gal who checked us in could not have been nicer or more helpful (thank you). My kids enjoyed the free wi-fi and other amenities such as cable tv, mini-fridge, microwave, spacious dressing area & plenty of mirrors for the morning rush. I did specify NON-smoking room after reading another review and so our room had no cigarette smell (thankfully as I'm terribly allergic). Our beds were so comfortable. I could not believe how quick I fell asleep. Our room was nice and quiet. We did not have the continental breakfast because our flight was so early but McD across the street was open. Excellent location. I will definitely stay at another La Quinta. I hope they are all this nice.

Room Tip: Smoking is allowed in the hotel so specify "NON-smoking room" at check-in if smoke bothers...

Everything was great, most impressed with how quiet the room was, even with spring breakers in the next room. Good value, good location for our family visit, restaurants close by. Room was updated and clean.

We stayed at this location in late February 2013 when we flew in for my sister-in-law's destination wedding.

Pros:
Easy to find from airport
Near restaurants, Publix, CVS
Convenient to Clearwater Beach, St. Pete, Largo, Indian Rocks Beach; Tampa also not too far.
Very clean & modern room
Refrigerator - deluxe dorm size (tall rectangle not the small square) - this came in SO handy!Speedy wi-fi - easy to connect
One-cup pod coffeemaker (I have a different brand pod coffee maker at home (Juan Valdez), just a tip: pour in 2/3 cup of water per serving; any more makes it weak) - pretty tasty!
Decent Contintental Breakfast, liked the waffles. OJ wasn't horribly sour like at many hotels.
Pool area: very clean, towels (normal size; not beach towels) provided, hot tub, a few lounge chairs and some tables/umbrellas
Lobby area - very clean

Cons:
Pool area size - during high traffic months/times, I think the pool area could be rather small & chairs could fill up easily.
Front Desk answers phone at @4 rings.
Standard Cable - No HBO/Showtime, history channel, etc.; not really a problem for us but may be for TV lovers.

Room Tip: Ulmerton is a busy road - if you are a light sleeper, ask for a room away from the street.
