Surprisingly, for a chain hotel, this La Quinta feels like a casual B&B (on a large scale). Clean-freaks will despair over the walkways (which need a good powerwash); the fried-food smells coming from the small bar (even when it's closed); and the musty smells in the rooms. However: the hotel has genuine beach character, which is so hard to find in these times of corporate standardization.
The staff are simply the BEST. They make this hotel special, and I hope the management recognizes how good their people are. Every employee went out of his/her way to be helpful and courteous. Not a cold fish among them either. These folks are warm, and welcoming.
The rooms and amenities are especially suited to families, people with dogs, and guests who just want to hang out around the pool and hot tub (which should both stay open later).
I will definitely return to La Quinta in Fort Myers-Sanibel, and I hope the hotel can maintain its excellent rates and attitude. Let's keep it casual; we'll all live longer!
