I continue to come back to this hotel because the rooms are clean and nicely furnished. Although it's been months since I was last here, the staff recognized me and tried to make me feel welcome. The breakfast they offer is underwhelming. Breads, cereals and waffles are mostly what's available. Red apples, yogurt and juice are also available. Hard to...

The exterior and interior areas of this hotel are very clean and well appointed. The staff was very courteous and our room was ready an hour before check in time. Room was clean, the bed was comfortable. TV was small, shower had poor water pressure. If you want breakfast get there early because it ends at 9 AM.

Very clean, quick check in and out, friendly staff. Would recommend. My extended family stayed in different rooms. They put all of us close together without even being ask. It is close to downtown Sarasota and close to Fruitville road so it makes access to I-75 very easy.

Check your sheets before you lay down. I paid more attention to the cleanliness of this room than I usually do because this is my first time staying in a hotel with an infant. After pulling back the covers to lay baby on the sheets, we saw quite a few hairs all over. It looked like a dog had probably...

Stayed at LaQuinta in Sarasota mid-July. Rain kept me from trying out the pool. I found it to be a spacious, clean place to stay with good Wi-Fi service. Very quite at night, getting a good night sleep.

She went to ER, her friend went to jail and the other one I saw rummaging thru the dumpster behind hotel. 3 blocks from the high crime area of Sarasota. They allowed drug users and prostitutes to rent rooms there. I don't want to be...

This was a great value for the money. The location was close to the beach and to restaurants. Everything was convenient and the customer service was great. The downsides were the breakfast. We didn't eat at the hotel because the quality was not up to our expectations. The other downside was that the WiFi was slow on the second floor...
