We live just up Hwy 98 in Pensacola but wanted to get away for a quick trip with our 2 dogs. Looked on the net for hotels that were pet friendly and this La Quinta was at the top of some peoples list.
We found out why.
This hotel is obviously no 5 star resort but the room we had was very spacious, nicely decorated and was very comfortable. We had a very comfy king size bed, leather couch, working desk and chair as well as an LCD TV hanging on the wall.
The room and bathroom were very clean upon our check in. Which they let us check in 2 hours early which was very nice. It is also pert friendly as well.
I read a few other posts about certain rooms being pet friendly....Not sure what happened there. We saw at least 15 other people with dogs and I can assure you they were not all staying in the same room as us.
They have a simple grassy area out behind the hotel for the pets to do their "business" and have plastic baggies for you to keep the grass clean as well.
They even have doggie treats in the lobby for your 4-leggers as well. The pool area is smaller but nice as well. There is a nice covered patio/deck area and a hot tub.
This hotel fit our exact needs for a quick get-a-way to the Ft. Walton beach area.
