“good stay”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 14, 2013


very reasonable price for location. rooms were clean. the hotel is renovating the lobby so some construction noise and traffic is expected. On the downside, the elevators are small and very slow, I recommend you take the stairs. The pool is small but if the beach water is welcoming then it doesn't matter. breakfast was free and actually way better than what i remember from my previous stay. i would recommend for the price.

Reservations made online--very easy--check. Able to find the hotel without difficulty--check. Staff incredibly friendly/helpful--check. Beachfront--check. Allowed pets--check. Did not charge an additional pet fee??? They did not (impressive). Incredibly cheap rates for beachfront and the rooms were very clean. Perhaps not the most current, up-to-date furnishings, but everything functioned as needed, the rooms were large, and the bed was extremely comfortable. Fast Wi-Fi, nice sized TV in the room (if that's your thing). The even provided a complimentary little breakfast, tasty but simple. If you're looking for luxury, this might not be the place for you, but if you just need a little getaway, it is perfect. There is a large deck in the back of the hotel, right on the beach, with lawn chairs. There's even a small (again, very clean) pool out back as well. There was quite a bit of construction going on during this stay, but nothing that disrupted sleep. We did see several jellyfish on shore, just keep an eye out while you're walking.

I'm not much on reviews so bear w/me. We honeymooned on SPI 10/20/13-10/27//13 to enjoy a true kiteboarding experience. We arrived @ the hotel around noon and were not able to check-in until 3:30, understandable. We were told we'd have a balcony on an upper floor by the "call center." When we arrived the lobby was under construction and they had us blocked for a 1st floor room. We were quite disappointed and spent our waiting time checking out the competition. We agreed on the Holiday Inn and went back to La Quinta to appeal to management to excuse us from any obligation on our secured reservation, being that we weren't very happy with the accommodations and disarray of the main lobby. Assistant manager, Arturo Kalifa, showed us several rooms and was very motivated to keep us on the property, but also was willing to comply with our final decision. We agreed to stay in the room originally intended for us. It was perfect! The room was spacious, clean & quiet. Which was a concern since it was on the 1st flr. The 1st floor was tiled and I believe it was mopped at least 10 times a day! The staff were all cordial & friendly and the hotels proximity to the areas of the island that interested us was ideal. The free breakfasts were very good, but we did try other venues (pumpkin pancakes:-))
They seem to be spending money to make this hotel a first class destination. Half-way into our stay we noticed new commercial washers & dryers be delivered, along w/ an almost completed lobby!
Thank you to Arturo & the entire staff of La Quinta for making our honeymoon so very memorable. We enjoyed our stay so much we are planning our return trip for next Oct. , not to mention the beauty of the Island and the consistent winds at the "outlaw flats!"
sincerely, Carl & Maryanne

Room Tip: I will always request a first floor room because of our particular situation but the other rooms (we...

Room was clean and as described. Loved that pool was heated being that it was chilly that evening. The breakfast made our whole stay worth it. Great value! Made my stay worth every penny. The only thing I didn't really like was that the fixtures in the bathroom had rust stains which gave the impression that the room was dated. Overall I liked my stay. The price was a good value if you're looking for a quick economical getaway.
