“Nothing to remember it by La Quinta overnight”
Reviewed February 28, 2013

Staying at the La Quinta Inn reminds of yet another tired Florida motel that needs to be updated. The motel although very clean needs the owner to put some money into the location as opposed to just pushing as far as possible. Beds were old and need to be replaced. The ceiling vent in the bathroom was dirty and the doorstop was missing on the door leaving a big hole in the bathrooom door. Coffee pot was pretty old and stained. Staff were very nice including the manager who made it a point to introduce himself to the guests during breakfast. Front Desk staff during check-in was very nice but slow as molasses. Took 15 minutes to get checked in. Unfortunately, I would probably not stay here again. As a mid level budget brand, I have to come to like La Quinta's becuase most of the properties have been smartly renovated and the properties relatively new. This one didn't meet those standards in my book.

We booked a suite w/king bed, room was very spacious, large work desk and separate round-top table provided plenty of space to spread out. Bed was comfy, good quality linens, bathroom very large. Check-in was quick and efficient. Breakfast was ok, usual continental fare, waffle maker, egg and sausage patties. Hot tub was just right temperature, a bit frothy (could have used a cleaning) but felt great after a long day. Too cold outside to try the pool. Location is ok, once you figure out how to get into the hotel from the 'back' entrance, rather than from US 19.

Only a couple of nits to pick:

1. Ice bucket was missing from room. However, a call to the desk resolved the issue, one was brought to the room.
2. The 'heat' obviously hadn't been turned on in a while (remember, it's Florida), however a STRONG cold front brought temps in the 30s, and the room got a bit cool. When I turned on the 'heat', the odor was awful - much worse than the usual 'burning dust' odor that we usually get when we infrequently use our heat down here. I quickly shut the unit down; fortunately the room had two a/c units, so we were able to keep the room comfortable.

I'd still recommend this hotel.

Stayed at this property just for two days using my La Quinta rewards points! Property is very well-kept and the service is fabulous! Recommendations for restaurants was right on. Assistant general manager recommended Shepards restaurant in Clearwater Beach which was excellent! Great service for breakfast and will definitely stay at this property again!

About the only open retail business near the facility is a Quaker Steak and Lube. We stayed at the same Laquinta in 2012 and found out first hand that Wednesday is motorcyle night at Quaker Steak and Lube and there must've been 200 or more. They didn't bother us and we didn't bother them. This time we were there on a weekend and there was some sort of motorcycle "convention" set up in the Quaker Steak and Lube parking lot with booths set up like one might find at a church festival. The music was overbearingly loud on a Saturday afternoon. I do not know the frequency of these events there. The Laquinta itself was clean and well equipped, save for running out of orange juice at the Sunday morning breakfast. All things considered, I would stay there again.

Staff were very helpful, moved me to a quieter room as soon as it was available.
Very nice lobby, eating area.
Room was clean and comfortable, really nice!!
I felt like I was staying in a higher class hotel and paying almost economy rates.
It was great.
