Wife and I were startled out of our sleep at 0630 by someone with a key card trying to enter our room. The only thing that stopped them was the internal latch. They continued trying to force the door open until I yelled at them. As an armed veteran I was fully prepare to defend my family if they had breached the door further. Tried calling the front desk but phone was dead, finally reached them via my cell phone and was nonchalantly told the system showed our room as vacant! 1. How is this possible when we were issued keys the afternoon prior? 2. Who is allowed to check in to a hotel at 0630? 3. Was this a scam by the front desk? Were we being targeted? When we checked out at 0830 the desk clerk (apparently now the day-shift) had no idea of what had happened. Nothing was passed on because this is apparently a joke to La Quinta. DO NOT stay at this hotel.…
Blood on the wall of the room in two places. Trash on the floor in the room, stains on the bedsheets. Only toiletries provided were a small bottle of shampoo and two bars of soap. The walls were incredibly thin. The staff was nice enough but I wouldn't come back unless I had nowhere else to go.
I travel very often for work and my company generally will put me up at the Hilton, Holiday Inn Express, Marriott, etc. On my own dime, however, I prefer a decent value in a safe, clean room that doesn't hurt my budget - especially because I'm usually travelling solo, I'm self-sufficient, and staying for only one evening. This was a last-minute booking on a holiday weekend - even during COVID-19, this meant that many hotels were charging higher prices in the Fort Lauderdale area to benefit from holiday travelers willing to pay the premium. I did a blind deal on a travel website and the La Quinta was my selected hotel for the evening. Before continuing, I think it's only fair to consider the cost of staying in the Fort Lauderdale area. Hotels charge heavy premiums for their rooms just because you can be to the beach within ten minutes and (usually) close to entertainment, cruise ports, etc. Basic accommodations can have a higher price in this area, even if the room you receive or neighborhood it's in doesn't align with what you believe that price would warrant elsewhere. After living in Fort Lauderdale for 3.5 years (recently moved), I'll leave an honest review of my thoughts, pros, and cons of my visit. AREA: Close to many restaurants, grocery stores, drug stores, etc. It's also less than a 20 minute drive to the FLL airport (where I work), about 15 minutes from the beach, and close to I-95 which connects you to Miami in about 30 minutes if you go south and West Palm Beach if you head north. I never felt unsafe or worried about my vehicle ('09 compact in good condition) in the uncovered lot. Check-in: The lobby is small and practical - a small place to sit and watch TV. There is a small pantry area to buy any frozen meals, toiletries, or snacks you may want. The staff was VERY friendly - immediately greeting me as I entered and the woman assisting with my check-in was upbeat and polite. For Fort Lauderdale, I was surprised - I've come to expect to be considered an inconvenience to customer service representatives in SE Florida - something that doesn't sit well with a low-maintenance Minnesota guy. I even called prior to my arrival and the representative was very friendly in explaining some details about my room that I had questions about. Public spaces: Truthfully, I only witnessed the lobby and hallways as they informed me that their breakfast service was temporarily suspended and the dining area and pool were closed due to COVID-19. No problem for me - I usually bring food or stop by a Dunkin' for breakfast anyway. The hallways were fine. Kind of dim, kind of drab, but seemed clean enough and the other patrons I encountered were polite. The elevator was kind of tired and I wasn't surprised when I saw the "out of order" sign the next morning as I exited my room on the fourth floor. Fortunately, I pack light. Room: The pictures are fairly accurate in that your room does have those colors, furniture, etc., but it is pretty flattering compared to the actual room itself. I'm not complaining, though. It looks like it was more of a flip job and they just slapped on a fresh coat of paint and updated some linens and called it a refresh. The room was decently cleaned, though. I'd give it an 8/10. I wipe down high touch surfaces pretty thoroughly and didn't have too much dirt or grime residue. I think they could possibly do a deep clean rotation of rooms at this hotel to ensure it's freshened up semi-regularly, but overall I wasn't disappointed. There were NO bugs - I checked the mattress and behind bed stands/dressers for any sign of critters and am happy to report that the room passed inspection. The mattress was comfortable and the linens were warm and clean, the towels were good, there were two bars of soap and one shampoo, and two packs of coffee. Also, the room does have a mini-fridge with adjustable temperature (I appreciated that it got cold enough to keep my food frozen) and small microwave that was noticeably cleaned prior to my arrival. You could hear street noise from the closed window but it didn't interfere with my sleeping at all. All in all: It isn't one of the more polished La Quintas I've been to before. If spending $25 more a night for an elevated accommodation is worth it for you, then I'd suggest seeking that out. For me, however, I want a clean and safe space to unwind from the day, watch some Netflix, take a hot shower, and wake up with some morning coffee in my room before heading out for the day. This hotel satisfied my needs and I would have no reservations about staying here again in the future.…
I love LaQuinta, but they have to step it up and do room checks to make sure rooms are up to par BEFORE assigning them to patrons!! I'm not writing them off, but it will be a while before I stay again!
We stopped here extremely late during a roadtrip. The late night desk staff was extremely kind. She was very helpful. This hotel is pet friendly without a pet fee. The room felt extremely dingy and was in clear need of updates. For one night to sleep while traveling with a small pet, it did the job. There is a 7-11 nearby and it is close to the turnpike. No coffee in the morning, dining was Shut down. I recommend this if you just need an emergency place to sleep for a night while traveling or working in the area. Aside from that, I would find someplace else.
