“Reasonable price, reasonable accommodations”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 1, 2014 via mobile

The common areas of this hotel we're very nice. The continental breakfast had both hot and cold items. It was fresh and well presented. The pool seemed nice and clean however I don't think that it was actually heated. As for the room, I had a smoking room so this may be my own fault, but room did not feel as clean as I expected for the price I paid. Burn holes in furniture and carpets, dirt in corners, etc. There was no screen in my window and a tree was poking in so I couldn't leave it open for fear of fruit rats and bugs. Bed was very comfortable and plenty of space for my belongings. Mini fridge worked well, didn't try the microwave but it looked old and rusty.

Stayed April 2014, traveled as a couple

I look forward to my business trips to Sarasota. Always a great experience for me and my Lab. The rooms are beautiful, clean and comfortable. The Staff is so pleasant and knowable. Won't stay any place else but La Quinta!

We chose this location because it's on the main highway, but close to Longboat and Siesta Keys. It was very clean, the staff were friendly, great breakfast buffet, and clean, warm pool. We stayed over Easter Sunday and the staff were geared up to deal with the large number of people staying at the hotel that weekend. They did a nice job of attending to everyone's needs.

I have stayed a LQ in Sarasota several times per year for the past many years. The staff is exceptional and it is great to return to the SAME faces over and over. They are welcoming and friendly. The rooms are great - great size, lovely furnishings and in good repair. Many choices from breakfast, my only complaint, NO BACON or SAUSAGE but other than that, plenty of cereal, fruit and waffles.

We were traveling threw with no reservations. Stopped in, they were able to accommodate. Rates fair, hotel nice, service good. A nice place to stay when you are there, restaurants near by, close to the Ringling, and easy access to the beaches.

Room Tip: Rooms on back have view of water.

This hotel is very clean and super friendly to your pets. Breakfast is always fresh and at no additional cost. We choose to stay at La Quinta for the rates and the fact that they do not charge extra for your pets.

I love La Quintas in general, as I have a small dog and they are ALWAYS welcome without extra fees, and this is a property I'd not stayed at before. Friendly staff, spacious rooms, GREAT breakfast selection, and attractive property. Recommend!
