Just what we need when we're going to marine stores and boat shows in the St Pete, Clearwater area. Watch the turnoff carefully due to the major road projects on Ulmerton; its a bit hard to find when driving from the west at night... which turn to make in the dark with the LaQuinta sign set back a bit. We...

Arrived to attractive landscaping and friendly reception. Marie was smiling and had a good recommendation for nearby restaurant. The room was clean and comfortable with a very nice shower. The pool area was very nice with a whirlpool lift for handicapped. Standard breakfast was ok.

Booked this hotel for a pre-cruise overnight. What a pleasant surprise. It had much more to offer than just an overnight sleepover. If I am ever in the Tampa / Clearwater area again, I will definitely consider this hotel. Although was did not have our pets, it appeared to be VERY pet friendly - another big bonus to me.

We stayed 3 nights in a huge king, one bedroom suite with my wife, daughter and dog. Had a separate bedroom, my daughter had a full size sleeper in the common area. Worked out great for us. There was a fridge, microwave, extra sink, and three stools at a counter to eat at. The bathroom was huge with a jetted...

We landed at St. Petersburg Airport and wanted to stay close by since it was so late. The hotel shuttle picked us up for no extra cost. The drive is short about 10 minutes however so much road construction made it take a little longer. The check in was fast, friendly. The room was clean and comfortable. We sat by...

While in Dunedin/Clearwater on business, I looked for a clean, affordable hotel, & this La Quinta Inn fit the bill! With my AAA discount, my daily rate was under $60/night, which is incredible in this resort area.

This is an older property that needs updating. It smelled a bit and especially smelled between the lobby and fitness center. The fitness center had old machines (some taped together), no weights, no way to clean the machines and no clean towels available. The breakfast was minimal and not much variety. The sofa bed mattress was horrible. You could feel...

The front desk woman was very courteous and helpful! She treated us great. We stayed one night in the King Apartment room which is their biggest room. They have a heated pool and hot tub. The room was HUGE! Bigger than a lot of apartments. Honestly had a lot of wasted space, but not complaining. The hotel is older and...
