La Quinta Inn & Suites Sarasota Downtown
Ranked #28 of 50 Hotels in Sarasota
Reviewed March 31, 2013

The room was shabby, the bed linens threadbare and the mattress disgusting. The only bright spot was the people on the front desk. The wi-fi was hit or miss. The breakfast was typical Motel 6. At least we got a free USA Today.

Reasonably priced. The staff went above and beyond anytime we needed anything whether it be extra blankets, towels, condiments or directions. The housekeeping staff was great. Quick to provide anything we asked for and so friendly. Clean rooms too. I recommend staying here and the little Golden Star Chinese restaurant across the street has great food and prices. Don't go by the appearance either because it was great.

Just completed a 4 night stay. The beds were so comfortable. Rooms large and clean - we had 2 double beds and there were 2 small couches, a ottoman and a desk chair. Also a frig and microwave. The complimentary breakfast was very good. Staff was very helpful. The wi-fi had problems a few times, after storms. When this occurred we told the desk, who helped us print our boarding passes from their reception desk computer, then called in the problem and it was corrected within the hour. Great location too, close to downtown and the Ringling Brother's museum, and Siesta Key too. Good value. The pool was simple. Did not use it. no hot tub. Pool area ok for swimming, but not much else. Also secure. There was a guard that walked around the building at night. Room access from hallways within the hotel.
I would stay here again.

We booked a room here for three nights. We checked in the first night at about midnight and when we got to the room, the air conditioning wasn't working. But a call to the front desk and they sent someone immediately to correct it and it worked fine after that. It was an average room that was showing some wear, but the bed was comfy. Yes, they do allow pets and at times you heard some barking, but it didn't last long and was not annoying at all. The breakfast served in the mornings looked good, but we just had coffee. The grounds are nicely kept and they have a night guard walking around the parking lot to keep all the cars safe. Matter of fact, when we got there the first night at midnight, all the parking spots were full and the guard was kind enough to let us park the car right by the front door to the lobby. The pool area was clean and nicely landscaped. We would definitely stay here again.

The location is great. It's about 5 minutes South of the airport and about 15 minutes from plenty of beaches. We were on vacation with friends and visited our grandmother in Bradenton quite frequently and easily. Lots of nearby attractions, jungle walks, museums, lots of restaurants I mean lots. Went from the Anna Marie Pier (you must go see it and have a drink!) all the way down to Siesta Key during our stay. The hotel is dog friendly and maybe I saw 5 dogs in 4 days. The room did have a strange smell, by day 3 it was maybe a mix of overcooked rice bags and dog? I know, weird comparison. Breakfast bar had a waffle maker, cereals, bagels and bread for toast, yogurt, muffins, juices and coffee. Better than some "free" breakfasts I've had.
