“Disgusting”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed January 10, 2013

Staff was very friendly. The room was gross. There were dirty shoe prints in the bathroom, hair on the floor, and dried urine on the toilet. I pulled the comforter back to check the bed and the bed sheet appeared to still have a body imprint in it. I can't believe they didn't even change the sheet before making the bed. The sheet had a stain right in the middle of it. The refrigerator was nasty, had food and mess left inside it. There was food and a mess under the microwave. I took the pillowcases off the pillows, and all of them had nasty yellow sweat stains all over them. It was at this point that I left the hotel and went elsewhere. The hotel is in a bad part of town and has exterior rooms.

I apologize that you were checked into a room that obviously was not ready for a new guest. That is not standard practice.

We went on a cruise in May, and wanted a cheap night sleep beforehand. A few people tried to steer us away from here, but with a no penalty cancellation, and the great rate, we decided we didn't have anything to lose.

It wasn't in an upscale area, but after growing up in Atlanta, this place was absolutely not scary, and it was clean. Staff was courteous, and you have to go through a lobby to get to the rooms, they're not accessible from outside so it felt safe.

The absolutely only reason we did not stay, is because we arrived in Jacksonville much earlier than we planned, and decided to find a hotel on the beach because there was a tropical storm, and we wanted to watch from our room.

This LaQuinta is an outdoor laquinta. The staff was friendly and breakfast was limited but satisfying. There were no microwaves or refrigerators. The rooms were a decent size but the bathrooms need upgrades. The beds were really comfortable. The walls were thick so you don't have to worry about hearing your neighbors thru thin walls. The only thing besides the rust in the bathroom is the air conditioner not working properly. The unit would cut on when you turned it to the a/c but cut off within a min or 2. It was a very uncomfortable night without a/c but besides all of that it was a nice experience. The location was right off I-95 and somewhat isolated from the street. If none of this bothers you then I would recommend this to anyone needing an inexpensive place to stay. They also take pets which was a big plus compared to all the other hotels around the area. Another plus is that they take military discounts!

Traveling with a dog, options are limited. We choose La Quinta whenever possible, for consistency and general quality over Comfort Inn, Motel 6, etc. The (king) bed was very comfy, linens fresh and clean. Carpet a bit worn, and bathroom small and old, but ok. No odors in room. Heat/ac not overly noisy. No fridge or micro in room. Standard LQ breakfast - always free - cereal, waffles, muffins, hard boiled eggs. Lobby, breakfast area bright and clean. Hi-def, flat tv in room. Lots of dog potty grassy areas, but would prefer a few stations with pick-up bags. Feral cats on property. Outdoor pool looked good. For the price, around $60, it's a good deal, but I'd probably be disappointed if I paid much more. Lots of restaurants and convenience stores in the area. Tricky to find, so watch carefully for the small road next to hwy.

Room Tip: Choose on the quiet side of building away from hwy. upper floors may not hear car doors slamming in...

This is a nice La Ouinta that we found to be very clean and a very good mattress and bedding. The staff was very friendly and professional and the breakfast was a little better than most La Quinta's.
Located just north of Jacksonville, it is a good location when traveling from South Florida to the north, since the next morning you are north of the rush hour traffic. This was the second time we chose this hotel and was not disappointed.

Stayed one night before leaving on a cruise out of Jacksonville.
Great value for a very clean and comfortable room.
Will definitely stay there again.
Gave great directions and recommendations to local restaurants.

If you are looking for a clean, cheap hotel, this is a good choice, but it is nothing special. It is right off the freeway and quiet depends on where you are situated. My interior courtyard room was fine. It is a two story exterior access facility, older but upgraded with a nice looking outdoor pool in the middle. Access off the street was a little difficult, as it is hidden down a small side street near an on ramp. The room was small, and the double beds were that -- not queens. The bathroom was small with the door swinging into the bath and leaving little room. On the plus side, the bed slept ok, and the TV was a newer flat screen. There is a very modest continental breakfast included for the price including waffle maker, yogurt, some dry cereal. The price was very reasonable. For the price I would stay here again.
