“There is no truth, there is only perception.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 14, 2013

After reading some of these reviews, I was pleasantly surprised. I also do not have caviar taste on a tuna fish budget either. The price was awesome for our ocean view room, they gave me a military discount as well. The staff was friendly and accomodating. I was really impressed with the overall quality of this La Quinta, based on some that I have seen. (I used to work in the Hospitality industry). Our room was clean and met standards. Breakfast had a great selection. The bar next door did not bother us at all and we had one of the closest rooms to the bar. Honestly, the bar provides a free fireworks show on Fri and Sat that the guests can enjoy. I think people should be thankful. Beds were comfy and pillows were nice. Loved our balcony. The dogs staying at the hotel did not bother us at all, however we are dog lovers. (Even the yappy little guy down the hall. could hear him in the hall, but not in the rooms.) Quite bluntly, if you don't like animals, ask if hotels are pet friendly or not. It can hinder the whole experience if you are not a
fan of animals. Best vacation in a long while, will be coming back here!

We got here on Tuesday evening and the desk clerk asked what room we would like. With a partial view or ground. We got to our room,3rd floor. Just like the picture online. View was wonderful.! The hallway did smell musty and looked worn. Maid forgot got our washcloths but overall very pleased. Breakfast was great. We got up to a hot free breakfast everyday. We stayed 3 nights. Very short walk to the beach. Great sitting area outside. Pool was small for the size of hotel but we had a whole ocean to swim in. I would stay here again.

Liked our gulf front, jetted tub room! Disliked noisy air conditioner that made sleeping somewhat difficult. Beds were firm, pillows even more firmer. Liked the tile floors. Mini fridge was not cold enough. A little rust on the tubs drain. Better if the toilet is separate from the shower. Wifi strength just depends on type and carrier because my husband's iphone had no problem, but my htc one was having some problem. Liked that there were 2 chairs out on the balcony. Liked that maintenance replaced the missing tv remote for jetted tub rm efficiently. Disliked that Atm machine was not working.

Room Tip: Select gulf front view, 3rd or 4th floor room.

Hello Lily!

Thank you for taking the time to share your experience! We are happy your enjoyed our scenic view, and your jetted hot tub. However, we’re disappointed we fell short of providing a fabulous experience. We apologize if the beds were too firm for your liking, the mini fridge, and the ATM machine for not working. We will tend to these inconveniences immediately to exceed every guest’s satisfaction. We hope you will choose us again and allow us to prove why we are a top rated hotel on Trip Advisor.

Best,
Aaron R.

The room at this hotel was ok, but the our 4th floor hallway smelled atrocious,(like pet urine or poo), we had a small balcony but it was right beside a bar that ran it's loud music late one night, only one night, thank goodness. The accommodations just didn't fit the price we paid. The beach was crowded with a capital C! There are not very many nice places to stay on the whole island that I could see, except the expensive Sapphire Towers.

Room Tip: Rooms on north side would be quieter.

Family get together for the long Labor Day weekend - had two rooms on the 3rd floor. PROS: Excellent breakfast is included - large selection - different kinds of eggs, waffles, muffins, re-fried beans, tortillas, variety of cereals and juices, etc. Rooms were clean, hotel staff was very pleasant. Beach Bar has "comfort food" burgers, wings, rings, etc. at a fair price for a beach bar - wings were very good and the service and bartender were excellent. Fireworks display was one of the best I've seen outside of the 4th of July. Short walk to a great beach - sandy with no rocks or shells to step on. Water was nice and warm at ~85 - seemed warmer than the small hotel pool.
CONS: If you bring your own chairs / umbrella you have to get to the beach early or the chair/umbrella vendor hogs the entire beach for a distance longer than a football field - very inconsiderate. TV in the room had issues - looked like someone pulled on the wires, and a lamp needed some repair - minor issues. Will definitely stay here again - fair prices - excellent service - excellent beach - clean.

Room Tip: Rooms at the end of the halls toward the beach are where the ice maker is - could be noisy at night.
