“Totally Renovated and Clean”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 25, 2007

We were traveling with our dog to Sanibel Island but upon late arrival at the hotel we found bugs in the room so we left immediately. We needed a room at 11:30pm, remembering that all La Quinta's are pet friendly and that there is one near the bridge to the island, I called and asked if a room was available. I thought since we had a pet they would put us in a non-renovatated or somewhat less nice room. Wrong! They had a room for us and our dog, it was totally renovated and CLEAN. Everything was new and it smelled clean and fresh. Great price and great stay. THANK YOU La Quinta, you were the only good part of our weekend.

Stayed October 2007

This hotel is pretty decent for the price. we got it really cheap thru priceline and it far exceeded our expectations. Part of the hotel is under renovation but the section we stayed was complete and everything was brand spanking new.

The staff was helpful and courteous. the rooms clean and well kept. The pool and hot tub very nice. No parking fees.

It is about 4-5 miles from the beaches of Sanibel Island so not too far at all. One word of warning though, the Causeway to cross into Sanibel island has a $6 toll to go in. its not a daily toll so if u plan on doing a lot of back and forth then you might be better off staying on the island itself.

nice place! My husband and I stayed at the la quinta to be close to both beaches for fishing. It was centrally located between fort myers beach and sanibel. We enjoyed the clean room and large, warm, pool. We would gladly recommend this place to anyone.

We arrived late afternoon with reservations. Paid high price for room overlooking nowhere. Fridge did not work but was replaced by happy and energetic maintenance man. On turning down covers the top sheet looked like it had been in traffic.New sheets delivered by..maintenance man. We made up the bed.Noisy neighbours at 3am called to find out only desk clerk on site. She did eventually get the partiers inside and quiet but we were affraid for her well being. Finally guess who was replentishing the breakfast buffet? Yup, the happy maintenance man.
The pool and it's surroundings were pristine. I think some of our problems could have been avoided if there were more staff .
Hotels.com did refund us a portion of our cost :-) but the experience left us with a dislike for LaQuitas :-(

  • Liked — Pool and pool area
  • Disliked — Dirty sheets and NO security at 3AM to deal with rowdy young adults

We originally booked a stay for 4 nights, but our plans changed so I called their 800 number to adjust the reservation. The CSR was unable to change it, for whatever reason, and said she had to cancel the original and start over. This turned into an ordeal because she then wasn't able to give me the same rate as we had for the original reservation but assure me that if I explained the situation once we got to the hotel, they'd honor the original rate. Of course, this didn't happen and the woman at the desk refused to give me the first rate. It was only a $10 difference but the point was that I wanted the exact same reservation, just 2 nights shorter. We didn't have much time to go and look for another hotel so we sucked it up and stayed.
The room itself was on the run down side and the bathroom could have used a new coat of paint. What really got to us was the carpet, which had quite a few stains and didn't seem clean... we didn't take our shoes off during the stay.
The motel (it is a "motel", not a "hotel")overall was ok, the pool area is great and they offer a happy hour in the afternoon with good deals. The staff overall, other than the woman at the front desk, were very friendly and attentive. I don't regret having stayed there, but I would probably think twice about staying again.

We weren't expecting anything special, but we weren't disappointed.

Pros: Large swimming pool was a great temperature for swimming laps. Breakfast spread was nice, including the option to make your own waffles.

Cons: Bathroom floor was a bit sticky. Air conditioner was loud, especially each time it cycled on (but if you leave the fan on, it's possible to sleep through the consistent noise).

Stayed here 5 nights in February. Staff from nice and very hard working. There weren't enough of them however, especially at the front desk. The pool was huge nicely maintained and really warm, a blessing when the weather was 65 and the kids insisted on swimming! Rooms were large, king and full bed with big bathroom and a fridge which was NOT in the bathroom. There was an odor to the rooms, not a bad odor just a noticable one. I had been prepared for it and had brought lavender plug ins. 3 of the plug ins would suit the room nicely. We paid a really low price so for what we paid it was a great value.

  • Liked — the large pool
  • Disliked — not enough staff, odd smell in room
