“Nice Hotel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 28, 2014

Great place to stay. Good value for price and was in a convenient location to the airport and Siesta Key beaches. Day and sunset cruises was just up the road. The staff were very pleasant and attentive to your needs. Room was clean and bed very comfortable. Would definitely come back.

Hotel was very nice and friendly, as always. The area, where hotel is located, is close to everything, with easy access to the island, fishing piers, charter boats and Ringling Museums. The bad side is the location is in a fairly run down area. I would look for a different area to stay, next time. Further south, in Sarasota, is a much nicer area, if you can't afford to stay on the island.

We checked in and the power was out (the whole grid). The manager actually took our suitcase up the stairs for us and to our room & made sure we were comfortable. The room was large & clean with a very comfortable bed with good pillows.

Not sure where some of the extremely negative reviews originated. We checked in and had booked the two room "suite" with king size bed thinking we might need the pull out couch. We asked about getting a regular room and lady at front desk signed us up for the la quinta rewards and gave us the larger room for same price as the smaller room. The hotel was very clean, very bright, and the staff was very friendly and helpful.

For the price of other rooms in the area and the quality of the rooms at la quinta (not to mention how close it is to everything in Sarasota) my wife and I will be staying here during all our return trips to Sarasota.

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.
