I won't stay here again...have always been happy with La Quinta until now. This hotel needs a plumbing upgrade, more than one elevator and more than one ice machine. Had I read the fine print and knew that pets were allowed I would have skipped it also. There were ALOT of dogs. Customer service was great but I will find...

In our move to sarasota, we get into town after driving for 10 hours. We are tired hungry and we brought our cat with us. Tried to get rooms at other places but these so called "pet friendly" hotels only allow dogs. Thankfully LA quinta takes cats. They are truly "pet friendly". Thanks LA quinta!

We have stayed here 5 or 6 times over the past 8 years. Every stay was always enjoyable and comfortable. Our request for a first floor room has always been met. The hotel staff has been excellent--recommended a good nearby restaurant.

Pet friendly, no extra charge. Friendly, courteous staff. Nice location, close to downtown area. Room was comfortable and clean. We did not notice noisy conditions even though we stayed during a holiday weekend and the motel was completely full. The breakfast was adequate.

The staff was warm and friendly. The property was clean and relatively new. Plenty of safe waling areas for the dogs and the breakfast/coffee was top notch. I would recommend to anyone, but for us to find a place that did not want to charge us extra fro our pets was astounding.
