“Wonderful escape”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 9, 2013

We were running from the blizzard. Jetblue could only switch our tickets to Orlando, not to Ft Myers. We booked the flight, and searched for a reasonable hotel. Thanks to the advice from the Trip Advisor reviews, we ended up here at the La Quinta. The place is newly-remodeled, the beds were great, the decor lovely, the pool and garden were such a nice place to enjoy the warm breezes! Breakfast was delightful...I made my own waffles in the waffle maker, enjoyed fruit from a huge bowl and there were many other choices. The breakfast was complimentary, and wonderful. All in all, if you need to find a reasonable hotel in Orlando, the La Quinta is a delightful choice. Well done Trip Advisor friends! Thanks!

Room Tip: Our room over looked the garden and pool, it is so nice to see it all!

This location is perfect. Just off of international drive so it was right near all of the action as far as food, bars, entertainment, but also quiet. We had a king bed executive suite that was bigger than some apartments. had a couch, chair, desk, fridge, microwave, and a very comfortable bed in its own room. The pool was very warm and the hot tub was HOT!! (wish it had more powerful jets)

Staff was very friendly and helpful. We have found our new go to hotel when we visit Orlando from here on out.

Room Tip: We had room three hundred and really enjoyed the layout and how quiet it was. We travelled with our...

Went to Orlando & wanted to stay in Universal Area. This hotel is conveniently located off of International Drive. Walking distance to numerous restaurants & entertainment venues. Recommend Tu Tu Tangoes which is behind hotel. The hotel is also close to Wet & Wild, Universal & Seaworld, drive or take local trolley or hotel shuttle. hotel also provides complimentary breakfast just a step above continental. It puts a good start to the day. Facilities are clean & quite comfortable. rooms have fridge, coffee maker & microwave.

The staff is very friendly and rooms are clean. You can't beat the rate and location. There's a trolley that runs up and down International Blvd. and only costs $1.50, plus there are many restaurants and bars within walking distance. My only complaints are the gym is outdated - the equipment is old and broken - and the hot tub is barely warm and the jets don't work. Otherwise all good.

We get away to Orlando every now and then, this is our new go to spot that is pet friendly(no additional cost). Great pool and hot tub area. Very friendly staff. Free parking and wireless internet. Next door to a Pirates Cove putt putt golf. LOTS of restaurants at within a block of the hotel. Close to attractions and shopping just off International Drive.

Nice, clean, pet friendly and good location. Hard to beat the price and be close enough (10 to 15 minutes) to Disney, Universal, Sea World plus shopping and restaurants. My only concern is that the hotel kind of shows some wear and tear around the edges: door frames, woodwork, carpets, a chip out of the bathtub, etc. - looking a little rough in places - might be time for some TLC. But breakfast was good, everything was clean, and staff was friendly. So it was a good place to stay.
