I have found that LaQuinta has reliable quality througout their brand and book them when they are available for my travels. Their thoughtful consideration of the Military is a plus. Personnel are always pleasant and accomodating.

Efficient, friendly staff. I am extremely sensitive to pet hair and was wary because they allow pets. However I have NEVER experienced a problem in 8 visits over the past several years. I stay at this location whenever visiting family in the Sarasota area. Plenty of hot water for late risers, free breakfast only until 9:30, so no comment. There...

I am always grateful for a property that allows pets with out an additional cost. Hurricane Matthew was quickly approaching the east coast and Sarasota, and La Quinta were our refuge in the storm.

We stay at this LaQuinta anytime we are in the area. Sometimes we decide just to come to Sarasota to eat at Yoder's and try to ensure we can get reservations at this hotel before making the trip.

Stayed here during Hurricane Mathew. Hotel was 100% full. The staff was being worked very hard, since this level of occupancy was not expected. The staff were excellent - always smiling and made sure everyone was taken care of. The hotel is right on the water - 5 minutes from downtown. Hadnt been to Sarasota before - there is a...
