We were in a situation where we needed a place asap @ 12am with our cat. Thanks to AAA they arranged the room and stayed on the line throughout the process. Not the greatest place but it could have been a lot worse. Thank you La Quinta. They do offer free breakfast

This La Quinta is an excellent example of the facilities and service one can expect from La Quinta -- not too fancy but well thought out, comfortable and serviceable. This hotel is in a premier location to visit the Sarasota area. It is also a big plus for our family to travel with our pet. Thank you La Quinta.

Interesting hotel booked off internet for location and price as we drove around Florida. The main thing I did not realise and it was apparent after check in was they accepted dogs. A number of guests had handbag pets and while they were no trouble it was a stark contract to the last 6 hotels who made me declare I...

Our hotel room was absolutely infested with ants on every single surface, including the bathroom. We also found that the breakfast buffet left so much to be desired, like variety, a working waffle iron, or fresh fruit. I usually love LaQuinta, but I will not be returning to this location.

I stayed at this hotel with my small dog 2 different times within the same week while looking to buy a villa in the area. Both stays were excellent, one week day, one weekend. The only thing I would suggest would be an egg item other than a hard boiled egg in their breakfast room.

This is a nice Inn to stay at when in Sarasota. Close to the airport, Jungle Gardens, University, downtown and more. Clean facility, friendly staff and they offer a continental breakfast. Not a large Inn but they make up for it in a Big way.
