service was very helpful. Printer for the lobby computer was not working. Staff quickly let me use the computer inside the office to print a boarding pass. Staff on several trips has been consistently efficient and responsive.

This hotel is old. But that is O.K. Staff friendly, lobby area adequate. Once you go to the second floor. The elevator smells bad, the carpeting in the hallways are so dirty and smelly. Once in the small room at first it looked o.k. until you start seeing the dirt in the bathroom, carpet, headboard and sofa. We had no choice but to stay two nights out of four we had reserved. We decided to cut our vacation short and go back home.

Very good accommodations and staff was excellent, could not have stayed at a finer hotel we appreciate the respect and courtesy that the clerk gave to us and was very knowledgeable about helping us and the hotel.

The hotel was clean and staff was friendly. They are also pet friendly which was a huge win for us. The grass area for the dogs was very clean, they provided bags for us. I would definitely stay there again.

We have stayed twice at the La Quinta Sarasota in the past month due to a relocation. The first was a room on the 2nd floor and it was a typical king room. It was clean and up to par. The second stay we were upgraded to a suite on the 4th floor. It was spacious and very nice, but there was a roach in the doorway upon arrival. The fact that La Quinta is dog friendly is a huge part of our choice.

we did write to LQ and complain, so they have been made aware, but what a nightmare it was. Thanksgiving night, exhausted, checked in, got settled and then discovered the filth. we were so totally grossed... my fault in that I never thought to request a room change, that's how tired we were.... there was no toilet paper, the desk said they'd deliver it, an hour later my husband redressed & went down himself to get some. the sink and counter were covered in toothpaste spit and razor shavings... ughhh..., totally grossed out.. sticky stuff all over the night stands and the table. at least the sheets had been changed & I do bring my own pillow... I kick myself that I didn't think to change rooms, but being thanksgiving they probably were all disgusting with the "hurry to get home" mentality (which I understand, however if you have a job, you damn well had better do it 110%) .. I emailed the manager & told her I would never stay there again. I just can't imagine taking that risk..Although the manager removed the charge, it was just too horrible of an experience..
the thing is, we also stayed at LQ in another FL city and that room was dirty also, We had thought we would give this chain a chance since we had never used them before. I contacted LQ about this one also, but too strange to have two different hotels in two different cities with such gross accommodations.. I figure they must hire the lowest priced cleaning service with entirely too few people for the needs... no stars... will never stay at one again.
