We were looking for a place to stay the night while taking our daughter back to Ringling College. La Quinta was reasonably priced and close to the college so it fit the bill. Not a luxury hotel by any stretch but you get what you pay for. The room and elevators had a strange deodorant smell - like they were...

This place is so dirty and gross I wouldn't use it as a dog kennel. Mold growing in the shower, people smoking in the rooms. Girl working the front desk was wearing headphones playing on her phone, had no desire to help I put her out to check in. Steer away at all cost!

We were greeted by Debbie who was fantastic! When we checked in she was so kind to offer us her personal beach chairs since she knew we wanted to hit the beach and were from out of town. Every other front desk person we came in contact with was so nice also! I do own a dog but don't travel...

This hotel was low frills and inexpensive. It is a good place to crash while enjoying your vacation. The only problem was that the bed springs were broken, and the bed sagged in the middle. The staff noted this problem when I checked out.

We always enjoy coming to the LaQuinta in Sarasota. It's conveniently located on the water. The rooms & lobby were up graded several years ago. Showing some wear, but still nice. Forget the breakfast. Cold choices and not attractive. Enjoy a local restaurant if that's an important meal.

Upon checkout, I forgot some items in one of the drawers but didn't realize it until the next day. I quickly called Debbie at the front desk. She found my items, boxed them up and sent them to my home. Wow - how nice!! This is how La Quinta Sarasota treats you like family!

We stayed there last year without issues. Not the same this year. The room assigned was sub-standard and next to the lunch room. Room was musty and AC did not work well. Could not change room as hotel was full.
