We used our points to stay in the Ocala La Quinta Inn while visiting with a large group of friends. It was warm in our room and the HVAC was not working. We ask to be moved to another room which they refused to do. It finally got fixed but caused us to miss Dinner with our group. Meet with...

We go to a lot of LQ's because we often travel with our pets. Some of the older, 2-story ones are a bit dicey. But this multi-story hotel was great. Clean, nice rooms, clean grounds and there were a lot of dogs there. Friendly staff. Good mattress. Convenient location for a variety of restaurants. The breakfast was not particularly great:...

We have stayed here before and had a very pleasant stay. Recently, we called the hotel directly and requested a first floor room because of a disability issue. When we arrived we were given a 3rd floor room and told the hotel was sold out and there were no first floor rooms available. We checked in at 4:30 with this...

Great Hotel. Pet Friendly with plenty of walking areas with grass. Staff is great - bends over backwards to meet needs - all with a smile. Need refrigerator/microwave in every room. Need more options for breakfast food.

Thank you for your wonderful comments. We are working on micro/fridges in room and adding to our breakfast but I don't think this will happen until we are up for our renovation. Our corporate office is making those determinations. I do not have a list as to when that will be.

The hotel staff were very friendly at this hotel; we travel with our greyhound and appreciate LaQuinta's pet policy. There were areas to walk our dog; plus pick up stations are provided on the premises, although some guests chose not to pick up after their pet.😬 The toilet flush is very noisy; I could hear flushing from other guest rooms....

We arrived on November 7, 2016 after a long drive from near the South Carolina border. We were greeted by an unfriendly clerk who seemed not happy to be there and was told that we couldn't have 3 dogs stay because they have a strict 2 dog policy. We had stayed there a few times before and never had a...

This was the best smelling dog-friendly hotel I've ever stayed in. The front desk staff was great, especially the night shift. I was so tired when I arrived, and the clerk was so understanding and helpful. I will definitely stay there the next time I'm in Ocala!
