It was like we were staying at the dog pound. Dogs barking and howling all day and evening long. An elderly man even got bit by a dog while were there. The place was clean the service people were great but the counter people and management did nothing to help with the noise.

This was the very first time we had stayed at a La Quinta Inn and were pleasantly surprised at the high quality of service. Everyone was extreemly friendly and very helpful. Rooms were very clean and everything was in working order. Free breakfast was great! My wife and son loved the pool. The location was just perfect and we will be back!

This is my newest favorite place to stay. I was really impressed with this hotel, all the way around, and didn't not have to give a leg and arm. Beautiful, even the security guard was especially kind. I cannot say enough about the suite. I found the park just south of the hotel a great walk for my pooch and My daughter, visiting from W VA, used the park for her daily run. The best pizza in the south is only a short distance away at the "Broadway Bar". Every thing a person might need is so very close by. My army vet son "worked out' on working equipment. We enjoyed the pool and it was nice having pool towels ready available ALL the staff members were GREAT! Everyone was helpful with whatever our needs were. All around friendly place, safe and secure; the other guests seem to be very comfortable and relaxed, also. There are some other "up scale" hotels near by, however, this place has got it all and the price is right.
I will be staying here again when I want to take a break, from Bradenton Fl.

We were just as safe there as we would be in our own home, Like I said we met the security guard and were in good hands. Thanks, Sarasota La Quinta for being so kind.

Room Tip: my room was directly across from the elevator and was just as quiet as any "quiet" corner.

The hotel at Sarasota is close the water and easy to get to from the highway. It was very clean, the staff was friendly and courteous. The check and check out was very easy. I love the refrigerator and microwave in each room. The room is spacious and very clean, I like the fact that they don't use comforters on the bed. The linen was very clean, smelled fresh. Overall very good stay, I would definitely return.

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.
