Keystone Heights, Florida
Reviewed 30 January 2016

Good location close to shopping, restaurants, and interstate exit. Rooms have been updated with new furniture and bedding. King rooms are on ground floor, with parking outside the door, which makes it easier to bring luggage into room. Plenty of room for breakfast dining. Will definitely stay here again!

Had to take our dog to the veterinarian cardiologist (did not know there was such a person) so we stayed close by at La Quinta which is pet friendly. Fortunately room opened to parking lot so it was easy to take the dog for his walk. An older establishment but recently updated with nice decor and comfy bed. Would stay...

My car key fob was left at a restaurant close by. Luckily a gentleman from there brought the key to La Quinta. I can't begin to tell you how much I appreciated all the work and effort the staff went to ensure the speedy return of my key fob to my destination. So impressed. Thank you so much

I would not recommend going if there are games scheduled or you speak to the manager in person about your needs. Hospital stay and they are located less than a mile away. Required assistance. Luggage carts few and difficult to locate. Outside of building needs updating, seriously. Walking distance to Oaks Mall, BJ's Brewery (great food), Red Lobster and others....

This hotel is an exterior entrance hotel which means it is an older hotel. The rooms are very clean and updated. Very comfortable and the hotel and grounds are well maintained. With hotels in the area being more expensive, this hotel is well worth the money paid.

I have to say right up front that I am never comfortable with hotels with drive up exterior room entrances. This is obviously an older property that was made into a La Quinta. That said, it was reasonably clean and most things worked. Breakfast was standard La Quinta. They have obviously put a lot of money in this property to...

This hotel is old, and the area appears to be not the best area. I stayed here for work. It is an outside entry. I would be concerned if I had a nice car or family. Hotel is very close to N. Fl. Regional Hospital. All in all for the price it is good. Breakfast is good, internet is good....

From the lobby to the rooms, this place has really changed in the last 2+ years. The rooms are repainted, new carpeting and new mattresses. The lobby is newly redecorated as is the breakfast area. This latter area has been redesigned with regards to the layout of the food set-up. There are new tables, chairs and wall décor. Now, the...

A very pleasant place to stay. The only thing that was not top quality was the breakfast. Not much variety there, it seemed the breakfast was centered on the waffles. Not so good if you are watching your carbs.
