We just returned from a 16 day trip from Maryland down to Atlanta, then to Savannah, down to Orlando, to Tampa, and then up to St. Simon Island, and back to Maryland. We will be doing reviews for many of our stops. Just a bit about us. We are a couple in our 40s and have two kids aged 4 and 9 who are seasoned travelers and who have easy going personalities. We use hotels as a place to sleep. It needs to be clean and have comfortable beds. It does not need to be luxurious since we are rarely awake and in the hotel. This was our fourth trip to Orlando in the past 6 years, but the first time we have done the non-disney attractions.
We stayed 9 nights at the La Quinta Inn. The hotel was very well located for our needs. We visited Universal, Islands of Adventure, Seaworld, Gatorland, and Aquatica. The hotel was well located in between all the parks, so it was a short ten minute or so drive to most of the parks (Gatorland was about 25 minutes). A free Universal shuttle was included but we did not wake up early enough to catch it.
Helpful and nice staff; gave good restaurant recommendations and did a long distance fax for no charge. The room was clean and fairly large. Nice and large pool that the kids loved. The hotel is on Universal Blvd which was nice because it was a much less busy area then International Blvd where many of the hotels and restaurants are located. I am a runner and running down to and around the convention center was quiet and quite scenic. The kids liked the waffles for breakfast, the fruit was hit or miss, and there were limited protein choices. Overall a really positive experience for our first ever La Quinta stay.
