I give it a 2 1/2, but there is no circle for that. This La Quinta is for me not very representative of the brand. Generally I find them a very solid and consistent chain. This Orlando "South" location borders on a sketchy neighborhood, is at a funky intersection, almost under the highway overpass, with an out of business restaurant kind of in the front area of the parking lot. Aesthetically it is miserable. If "Feng-Shui" is important to you, you will not be happy here. It is very cramped feeling. The pool is out in the middle of the concrete next near the overpass and busy main road. When I was there there were outdoor trash cans overflowing and there was trash all over one end of the building. Yuk.
The room itself is clean and certainly pleasant enough. It was not noisy. Fridge is a plus. It is a La Quinta, so that is still a good thing - but our room felt so cramped. My room had minor maintenance issues. There is a very small lobby area, and just nowhere to "be" in this hotel other than your room.
Staff is friendly and seems hard working. Value is OK, but you sure wouldn't want to pay rack rate to stay here. Hate to be a drag, but this just isn't like other LQ properties. Surprised at how high many people are rating this actually, but I am glad their experiences were better. I think some recent reviews I am reading may actually be for another property - there are several LQ's relatively close by. I can certainly see crashing here for a night, but for a week? Again, not to offend those associated...just my opinion.
