A most supportive and friendly staff keep the customer satisfied. Jonathan came to my rescue when I discovered that I had booked for two nights instead of one... we did not show and so our visit was cancelled. He was able to re-instigate our booking and waived the fee for the no-show.. and we were able to stay and enjoy...

Booked a room here since we were attending a concert at the fairgrounds across the street. Area seems a little sketchy, but check in was pretty easy, room was nothing fancy, but it was clean. There's a 5 Guys right next door so grabbing a burger before the concert was a no brainer. Breakfast the next morning, again, was nothing...

We booked this hotel for its location, free internet, and breakfast. The room was comfortable and clean and within 15 minutes walk to the concert venue. Breakfast was not as varied as has been at other La Quinta stays, but enough to get started on the day, including hard boiled eggs, yogurts, waffles, oatmeal, apples, etc.

This the worst hotel experience I have ever had in my life. My friends and I booked this hotel for a concert at the Midflorida Amphitheater which this hotel is conveniently across from.

We were here for a concert at the MidFlorida amphitheater so we booked a room for one night. We arrived at 3pm for check-in. They told us that the room was not ready but they would put a rush on it and they will call us when it's ready in 30 mins. We left and went for dinner and drinks...

Of the 4 hotels near the fairgrounds they had the best price. I was unsure because they were so much lower than holiday inn which is right next door. Buy You can't beat it! Friendly staff, fair price, clean rooms. Next time there's a show nearby we will be back.

We stayed at this LaQuinta Hotel since it was across the Street from the Mid-Florida Amphitheatre. Made life simple, we walked across the street for the concert. Five Guys burgers next door and we saved $30 for parking, so it was a great value.
