My wife and I stayed here 4 nights while we were in the States to take care of some business. La Quinta Inn is conveniently a mile north of Orlando International Airport with easy access to the metropolitan highway network. There are plenty of restaurants around the hotel... some within easy walking distance. We booked the hotel through a "Cheaptickets" flight/hotel package. The lodging worked out to $64/night... not a bad deal at all!
Our second floor room was very clean, but not what I would call "immaculate." The air-conditioning, TV, clock radio and hair dryer worked fine. The unit is very quiet, the bed was comfortable, so sleep quality was great. Our unit included a single king-sized bed and a ktichen cabinet (microwave and refrigerator) which came in handy for making drinks and snacks. The free WIFI internet works well, and was fast. There is a good selection of local TV and network channels (but none in Spanish.)
Most of the guests at the hotel appeared to be either business or family/tour groups on vacation visiting the nearby attractions. The La Quinta staff was pleasant and helpful. Many spoke Spanish, so we felt right at home. The complimentary breakfast was sufficient. The fruit, bagels, muffins, cereal, juice and milk were all fresh. The breakfast area was comfortable and clean. Next to the breakfast area are two work computer workstations with functioning printers loaded with paper (a big plus in my book). I had no problem receiving a FAX through the front desk.
There is ample parking, and a back door that makes life easier when schlepping suitcases. The area is a "hotel alley", but landscaped and well-maintained. Security does not appear to be an issue here. There is a swimming pool and patio area in the back of the hotel. Unfortunately, we were too busy to take half an hour to try it out. (Maybe next time.)
The bottom line, my wife and I liked La Quinta Inn Airport North, and will plan on staying there on our next trip to Orlando.
This hotel is a nice choice; staff is fabulous with good shuttle service to the airport. My second stay - easy to get to and restaurants are close by. Gail drove the shuttle was helpful in getting my luggage into my car upon return.
was recommended by a friend and not disappointed at all, the room was clean, comfortable and everyone was very friendly. I would stay again!! great value for the dollar in today's economy!! met very nice people, both employees and other guests.
