La Quinta is our favorite place to stay in Sarasota. Easy check in & out. Staff is very friendly & efficient. Good variety for breakfast. Rooms are very comfortable. Very close to everything. Looking forward to our next stay.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

The lobby and rooms were clean. We stayed in a standard double room one night and a King suite 2 nights. The staff were very accomodating and pleasant. We were disappointed in the sleeper sofa bed in the suite because it was a twin mattress and not very comfortable, but worked ok for our daughter. The extra space in the suite was nice but it really only sleeps 3 comfortably. The dog-friendliness of the hotel was what attracted us to stay here. Breakfast was good with moderate variety. The make-your-own waffles were a hit. Hard boiled eggs were the protein option. The breakfast room was crowded, so plan accordingly if the hotel is full. Close to Ringling Museum, St. Armand's Circle and beaches. Myakka River State Park is not too far and was a fun day trip.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

I have stayed at this hotel many times and this last stay was very disappointing. Dogs in the hallway yipping early in the morning on the second floor. Stains on the carpet in the first room that I looked at, the room that I ended up in did not seem to have the cleanest carpet either. I believe that management needs to go through the hotel and clean carpets. The bed was very comfortable.

The room was shabby, the bed linens threadbare and the mattress disgusting. The only bright spot was the people on the front desk. The wi-fi was hit or miss. The breakfast was typical Motel 6. At least we got a free USA Today.

Reasonably priced. The staff went above and beyond anytime we needed anything whether it be extra blankets, towels, condiments or directions. The housekeeping staff was great. Quick to provide anything we asked for and so friendly. Clean rooms too. I recommend staying here and the little Golden Star Chinese restaurant across the street has great food and prices. Don't go by the appearance either because it was great.
