La Quinta Inn & Suites Fort Lauderdale Tamarac
Ranked #60 of 131 Hotels in Fort Lauderdale
Reviewed March 16, 2014

After a long drive on Florida's crowded highways (this is convenient to the Turnpike), we anticipated a nice night's stay. What we got was a smoky room and dogs yapping at all hours. The breakfast was OK so no complaints there. The hotel is just around the corner from another La Quinta so be careful which one you get. We noticed that the hotel was running air purifiers int he hallway each of the two days we were there - but it didn't do enough.

Room Tip: Try another hotel - or make sure you aren't on the 4th floor.

This is a very good hotel for the price. Room was extremely clean and well maintained for the age of the property. Internet service was good for being free. Breakfast was severely lacking, as most reviews indicate - do not have any expectations of a "good" breakfast. It's acceptable for some quick calories, but think of it as a "continental breakfast" at best. Location is busy highway, but is convenient and very accessible.

My stay was fine. Hotel was clean, and staff attentive. The pool was not available , because there were leaves in the water. I was told the pool guy would be coming to clean the pool. I stayed there 2 days, and the pool was no cleaned.

I was disappointed in this LA Quinta. The pool area was dingy and had animal feces on the ground, the pool didn't look clean. The outdoor furniture was old and dingy. The breakfast was very limited. No danish peanut butter etc. I left hungry. The rooms were very clean but small. You can stay there before a cruis but don't expect to enjoy yourself at the hotel. Did nor notice a cruise shuttle. Would not stay there again as there are nicer hotels in the area.

very hard lumpy beds and pillows, you will wake up feeling terribly achy, do not expect a good night sleep, between the noise in the hotel, slamming doors and the noise from the street bring ear plugs too. The elevator is scary! Do not expect to be allowed a roll away bed never & we never even found the pool.

We stayed here one night on the way to the Keys. We always ask to see the rooms first before we decide to stay anywhere . Was shown a room on the first floor and it was good. When we checked in we got a room on the third floor. The elevator wasn't working so we had to schlep our
bags up three flights of very filthy smelly stairs. Not a good first impression. Our room was
large, clean and beds were comfortable. As others have said the bathroom sliding door was very
difficult to close. There was no closet per say, but a tacky curtain covering a closet and hiding the fridge and microwave. We did laundry there, one washer, one dryer, in a very dirty laundry room. There was also no garbage can, so dryer sheets were strewn all over the floor. The room did not have a lock on it......actually it didn't have a door knob to lock..

Breakfast was the usual fare. The breakfast area is very small for the size of the hotel with tall tables and utterly uncomfortable stools to sit on. Most people took their food to their rooms or sat in the very tiny front lobby. In all fairness to La Quinta, this review is from last year and hopefully some of these issues have been addressed. I am afraid I would stay somewhere else next trip.

One bonus of staying there was finding a great restaurant called Flanagan's within walking distance. Ribs, Caesar pasta salad and blackened chicken were all delicious. Thanks Ashley for being such a great waitress.

The hotel is across from a mall that includes Marshalls, windixie, etc. 24 hr cvs , I hop, dunkin donuts, etc. Staff very polite, I so wish I could take the bed home, breakfast sucks but that's minor to compare to the overall experience. Will always continue to be my 1st choice. Never felt one second of being unsafe.
